Eating a piece of cheese after a meal helps in pulling away some of the plaque and leftover tiny food particles from meals. And since it contains calcium, it adds to the health of teeth and bones as well.

Hi lybtrate user, even if you are not getting milk that's ok. You can start the baby with semisolid food and slowly you can give her solid food.

At 12 months hepatitis a first dose has to be given. But this is a optional vaccine. It helps in preventing water borne cases of hepatitis. So decreasing morbidity and school absenteeism. Next dose will b at 15 month of age which will b mmr and chickenpox. At 18 month dpt booster and polio booster will b there.

In the first 10 days babies will lose upto 10% of birth weight and thereafter they should gain 30- 50 grams per day if growth is fine, This way you can work out and this rate of growth is in first 3 months and then changes.

Teeth sensitivity due to exposed dentin or fractured enamel is common during winters. Don't neglect these symptoms. Very often these are early signs of severe dental problems.

My 3 year old daughter have small tumour in between ear and neck.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician,
My 3 year old daughter have small tumour in between ear and neck.
It's a lymphnode. If it's very big & associated with pain it has to be treated with antibiotic. A small node can be ignored as it usually occurs due to some skin infection in the scalp.

2 moth old baby's crting is what is called evening colic. It is generally harmless asd due to gaseous irritation. 1) you properly burp him lying with his abdomen pressed on your back or thigh and gently taping the back 2) give colicaid drops (which is natural product) 3-5 times a day 2) give cyclopam drops 5 drops when the crying is severe despite both the above measures. You can ask me privately to be in touch to be your family doctor.

Hello doctor. My daughter is 7.5 months old. She is into teething. Can we give any calcium supplement at this stage. Kindly suggest?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
It is a very common misconception (unfortunately even smong some doctors) that extra calvium is needed while teething. This is absolutely incorrect if you r giving your baby a healthy diet, including solids, her calcium intake wud b more than enough. As kajol says in tv ads, vit d is essential for absorption of the dietary calc. For this, expose her to sunlight early in the morning or late eve, ven it is not very hot outside.(make sure she wears short dresses, as skin must b exposed to the sunlight).

You don't feel any change because heaviness of breast is very gradual process. Milk will surely come if you desire it. So no anxiety apply to breast as possible after delivery. Thanks.

Dear , you have heard correctly, babies can pass 8 -10 motions daily or pass a motion after 2-3 days. Both patterns are normal, as long as the motion is soft and formed, i. E, between very loose and very hard. Make sure you feed him at a gap of at least 3 hours, and only your feeds.

Concentrating, grasping and retaining abilities generally vary from individual to individual. Different individuals have different rasping and retaining levels as per there iq levels. Just make the child do yoga and meditation to increase the concentrating power. There are no medicines to increase the brain power. You can try some home tips like having an almond soaked in water overnight daily and some walnuts. There is a syrup from himalaya named mentat which you can try which they say improves memory power! just have patience your child will overcome this!

Donot give any liquids before sleep, ask him to urinate first, not the time if possible and repeat. You can use bed wetting alarms also to train him.

Aerophagia is cause of his problem. To prevent this breast feed him in upright position & burp him well after every feed. Laying baby with belly down will also help. Ensure clear airways in nostril every time you feed.

One of My 7 year old girl child I'd always biting her finger tip and nails. They are twin kids. Any problem with this?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS

Nail biting is a sort of stress releasing, habit disorder, not harmful. Slowly children can come out of that with proper advice.
