Up to six month solely the child should be on breast fed and then after liquid diet and mashed food should be started. You can give him rice water, pulse water, mashed khichadi, mashed potato and other vegetables, biscuit in milk, mashed fruits, fruit juices, cerelac at this stage. The child should be double of his birth weight at the age of 6 month so check his progress by weighing him.

Dear lybrate-user, jesa ki apne bataya he ki apka beta 3-4 oz dudh hi pita he, ye quantity 5 months ke baby k liye kafi kam he itna dudh use ek bar ki feed me pina chahiye. Aap uske cues ko samzne ka prayatna kare jab wo apna mih idhar udhar kare, ya muh se dudh pi rhe ho it tarah ki movement kare, god me betha ho tb agar wo chest ki taraf muh kare to samaziye ki he is hungry and feed him. Khali rone pr dudh pilana baby ko irritate kar dega and uka growth hone me problem aa sakti he.

Though it's normal if weight is appropriately increasing, you can refuse it by proper burping. After every feed burp the baby for about 20 min.

Hello lybrate-user, I can see you have given meds for wheeze, hopefully after paediatrician advise. First we have to understand that cough is a protective reflux of the body. Second, the medicine will depend on what causes the cough, whether it's viral uri or allergic type. If it's viral and if the child is otherwise active, playing and eating well, nothing needs to be done other than observation. If there's wheeze the meds you mentioned will help. If the cough is persistent and disturbing child's activity and sleep, then I would suggest to show the child to a peds.

Hi, Most of the times during particular season children are prone to get fever frequently. Unless there is no major issue / any other symptoms during each time nothing to worry. Child's weight is ok now. Better give Vitamin D syrup (D3 MUST) 5 ml once a day & Zinc syrup (MINTONIA) 5 ml once a day for one month to improve the immunity. These are supportive measures. Prevention is best. Maintain good personal hygiene.

You have not mentioned his weight and height. If weight is appropriate for the age nothing to worry. Nowadays putting on lot weight is not advisable as its a associated with various health complicates like diabetes, hypertension etc. To improve his immunity give nutritious diet and engage him in physical activity.

MD - Homeopathy

If he is thin and not putting on weight you need to make some variation in his diet. Increase protien intake in the form of sprouts, boiled moong chana, muesli. Try and give him milkshakes daily, dates, jaggery, paneer in a balanced form.

no worry at all. this vaccine is reactogenic and causes swelling , lump and fever for few variable days --> just apply ice at that hardened part and it fades away in 4 weeks . if it is causing reduced leg movement or persistence of fever then only u shall be worried- well no long term effects !

My son has suffer from a fever from 18th July to till now. My son is 4 year old. His body temperature is between 100-103 celsius. But we consult with our family Dr. On 19th July morning. He has given some medicine 1. P250; 2. Chloroquine phosphate suspension 3.vomikind.but not improve till now, what shall I do now at first ? Dear Dr.

FIAP(NEONATE), MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ahmedabad
Chloroquine is specific for malaria so unless yoyears child is suffering from malaria it will not help. Your child might be having a simple viral infection which usually responds to paracetamol that you are giving to your child. However it is difficult to say for sure without seeing the patient. So if your son does not respond or develops new symptoms or has persistent vomitting and not taking orally well I suggest to consult a paediatrician. Warm regards

My daughter is 6 years old. She is a patient of ahd (size 10mm). My question is which one is the best option either open heart surgery or a device? how long she will be admits in hospital? and what is the cost? please Reply.

Pediatrician, Pune
Did you mean asd? asd closure can be safely done by a device and the child can be discharged in a day or two, preferable to do in a hospital with expertise and facilities to do device closure in children, cost can vary from 60k to 1 lakh depending on the type of centre.

Make your child habitual of drinking lots of water throughout the day as it will keep his/her mind alert and will make him/her feel energetic throughout the day.
