Do not use "baby wipes" that have alcohol Keep the diapers off as much as possible Give more fluids to make the urine less concentrated. Do not use baby powder while a rash is present. Apply plain petroleum jelly or Vaseline on the rash when using the diaper. Please go to your nearby doctor for physical examination if you see any of the following A rash in the diaper area looks like a rash on other parts of the body. Signs of infection develop. Symptoms become more severe or frequent. For mouth ulcers give homeopathic medicine Borax 30 4pills 4 times a day. Your feedback matters for further follow up. Take care.

If you are doubtful about it then please visit a doctor. When there is fever, you can use cold application to reduce the temperature. You can wipe the whole body with cold water and put on the dress. Also give lots of fluids and water as there will be dehydration due to high temperature. Give light food which is freshly prepared. Measure the temperature every 4 hrs and maintain the data to show to the doctor. Kindly observe his behaviour and ask if he feels chilly. Seizures are not in control of the person but during shivering the person is aware of it and can talk and respond. So please be alert and inform accordingly.

We have six months old baby. Currently he is at my in-laws' place with my wife. I am planning to bring my family to Bangalore. We have a question regarding buffalo milk feeding. As we get the milk from a dairy here, is it ok to feed him this milk. My wife's milk production is not much, please advise on what things to take care regarding feeding our baby. Thanks in advance.

It is OK. As for choosing between cow’s milk and buffalo milk, cow’s milk is a better option to start with, as buffalo milk is rich in fat and difficult to digest. Indigestion can lead to diarrhea. While introducing milk, start by adding a few teaspoons of the pasteurized milk to soups, halwa and some room-temperature curd. If he/she tolerates this well, then over time the quantity can be increased with careful monitoring. When introducing buffalo milk, mothers must first boil the milk, let it cool and then remove the layer of cream before feeding the baby.

Hello 'Dad' Your Health Affects Your Baby's Well-being Too

We all are aware of the fact that it's not just mothers- to- be who need to make sacrifices during pregnancy, infact it's a excellent idea for fathers to give up smoking and drinking too. Many people are aware of the fact that smoking during pregnancy can be harmful for an unborn baby, so if either you or your partner is a smoker, you should actually give up now. And giving up smoking and cutting down on alcohol now will eventually lead to a healthier and fitter you, so that when you've got a little baby around, you will be in the best of your health.

Passive smoking is harmful:
Passive smoking near your partner is dangerous as when she breathes in your cigarette smoke, your baby is taking in harmful carbon monoxide, nicotine and maybe other harmful chemical substances. Nicotine may lead to constriction of the blood vessels and might affect the uterine and placenta blood flow, might even increase blood pressure and heart rate of you and your baby.

One of the best moves you and your partner can practice is to keep your baby's surrounding and environment smoke free, both for now and as well as after the birth too. If you and your pregnant partner or other people in your home indulge in smoking, it can cause serious harm to your unborn baby.

Drugs and Alcohol is a Big No:
Taking other drugs or drinking alcohol can surely get in the way of you being the parent you always wanted to be. It can also affect your ability to take care for your child. This is a big issue with newborns, who wake up often during the night for feeding and changing. Parents indulging in the use of drugs and alcohol, this unhealthy practice may lead to the risk factor for SUDI if the children sleep in the same place as the parent. For many men, alcohol and other drugs can fuel heated arguments that might lead to violence and aggression. This can have serious consequences for the health and wellbeing of the mother and child.

Your habits affect your kids:
In a recent research the rate of lymphoma, brain tumours and leukaemia were up to 80% higher in children under the age of 5 when fathers had smoked prior to conception, even though the mothers were non smokers all the way. Moreover the rate of childhood cancer was seen highest when fathers smoked more cigarettes every day, or had been smoking for a longer time or started smoking before the age of 20.

It's not just your partner who requires staying healthy before, during and after pregnancy, you all fathers need it too. A healthy diet can surely help with conception, but it's always important to practice and carry on eating a well-balanced variety of nutritious foods. This will lead to the encouragement of your partner to do the same and help her enjoy a healthy pregnancy as well.

Antibiotics vaccination? Normal wbc count in 3mth to 1 year old baby is 6000-17500 mm3. If the value is not very off the range no need to admit. If it is please get a second opinion with all the reports. I would strongly suggest you to consult a paediatrician for second opinion before admitting your otherwise normal baby.

Constipation needs treatment for 3-6 months. Please give your child fresh vegetables, honey, water, whole grain diet. Fruits like mango, orange, sweet lime, papaya helps in relieving it. Banana, biscuits, apple, milk, cereal, ragi are seen to cause constipation. Make him to sit and pass motion. If motions are very hard with blood then needs check up by doctor.

He has vit. D deficiency due to inadequqte intake of vit d which is essential for absorption of calcium. Rapidly growing children require more calcium & vit. D. You should give vit. D supplement 30000 units once a week for 4 weeks. Exposing baby to sun will also be benefecial.

As per your daughter's weight 6.6 kg, for fever she needs around 100 mg of calpol and if fever did not reduce then meftal should be 26 mg. Both doses are high and interval is less. Please give her plenty of water and ors at least 330 ml in next 4 hrs. Keep a gap of 4 - 6 hrs between doses.
