As long as she gets what she wants she is not even going to make an effort to try anything else. Besides, she has got addicted to breastfeeding. The only way out of this is to be firm and stop it altogether, no matter how much she pushes you. Offer solids at 4 hours intervals. Don't try feeding in between.

Is fluoride treatment good for 2 year kid. What is the cost for treatment in India? Please advise.

Is fluoride treatment good for 2 year kid. What is the cost for treatment in India? Please advise.
There have been some concerns that fluoride may be linked to a variety of health conditions. Reviews of the risks have found no evidence to support these concerns and the general consensus is that water containing the correct amount of fluoride and fluoride toothpaste have a significant benefit in reducing tooth decay. However, a condition called dental fluorosis can occur, particularly if a childs teeth are exposed to too much fluoride when they're developing. Mild dental fluorosis can be seen as very fine pearly white lines or flecking on the surface of the teeth. It can often only be diagnosed by a dental expert because other conditions may give a similar appearance. Severe fluorosis can cause the tooth? s enamel to become pitted or discolored.

Babies can get dry skin same like adults do. As young skin is more delicate, it's more susceptible to becoming dry. To prevent so 1) Cut down bath timing-Bathing dries a child's skin because it removes the skin's natural oils along with the dirt. Use warm water and soap which is fragrance-free, soap-free cleanser which is much less harsh than regular. 2)apply thick oil based creams and moisturizers. 3) keep your child well hydrated, maintaining adequate fluid volume by feeding her more frequent.

Monteleukast is a very safe tablet. I need to know your child's age and how long you have been giving higher dose. But generally there should be no potential harm. Next time make sure you give the correct dosage.

Is it fine to introduce liquid diet to 3 months baby as breastfeeding is insufficient for my baby's need?

Hi, exclusive breastfeeding is recommended for 6 months, it increases immunity of child and provides all nutrients. If not able to give breastfeed then formula ffed like nan 1, lactogen 1 can be given. But you should try to feed child as much as possible because this will increase your milk production. Wishing your baby a good health.

Dear lybrate-user, fruit juices, fibre rich food such as vegetables and green leaves should be added in diet. Reduce the amount of milk in food. Don't force him to go for potty. Have a regular time for toilet training.

Good fresh home made food is all that is required for your child to achieve his maximum potential. You can give these products but are not absolutely required. warm regards
