Along with breast milk you can give homemade semi solids like khichdi, mashed banana, egg yolk. I can suggest better (local foods prepared at home) . You can ask me privately to advise you regularly as your personal doctor.

How do you know your milk is less? there is only one way to find if the milk is sufficient or not. If the baby passes urine more than six times in 24 hours then consider your milk as sufficient. Normally mother's milk is sufficient upto six months of age.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, as per your queries, it seems you should get a hearing check up done. As per your childeren, they are quiet right on their point as, it seems you hv got a high frequencies hearing loss, where you can miss sounds like bell, door bell, telephone ring etc. It is purely due to ageing or could be due to some associate problem like high b. P, increased blood sugar or could be due to thyroid also. It is necessary to done a hearing test very soon. After that further step can be taken.

She may have stomach infection due to which she is having fever and UTI like symptoms .Of course she need antibiotic and antiemetic which you are already giving .Get blood test done for worms as well as it is very common in school going children, which causes repeated stomach infection.

This is common problem in children of this age group, and moreover he has this anatomical defect so he will be prone for repeated respiratory infections. Need not worry he will over come this as he grows old and develops immunity. Avoid cold weather and cold beverages and ice creams. Give proper steam inhalation 2-3 times daily but with caution.
