Milk for kids
A study suggests that two cups of milk a day is ideal for toddlers. Consuming more than that can reduce iron stores raising the risk of anaemia
Also says children from age one to till eight needs two cup of milk and from nine to 18 need three cups of milk or its equivalent each day

Can't pin point any particular figure of weight and height, it is a range on which we plot the height weight, head circumference etc on growth chart and if we find it below 3rd centile or crossing two major centile downwards then it's an concern issue. Other factor is activity, which if normal, usually we don't bother. All five fingers of same hands are not of same size, how can you compare children from other race, origin, etc.

Hello, My son is of 3.5 years old, 15 Kg of weight. He falls in cold and fever while comes in contact with outside water. Even in very early morning, around 4 AM-6 AM he sneezes more because of the cold environment. Might be his resistance power is not so good. Please suggest me, how to get rid from this issue and how would be the diet for him to grow up physically, mentally/memory. Thanks a lot.

Best option would be to visit nearest patanjali chikitsalay for advice. The. Medicines etc they prescribe are free from harmful side effects as compared to allopathic medicine. Plus, they can suggest pranayama that naturally boosts mental and physical health. That should be the best start for your child. Also, watch and practice as shown on astha channel daily 5-7: 30 am and you will see so many small children doing what is being taught on way to good health.

It is not enough to merely focus on the physical health of children. Parents should take primary responsibility for safeguarding the mental health of children, preventing them from going astray and making them good human beings and responsible citizens. Thus we can create a healthy society

I suppose she must have started sitting without support very well and must be enjoying. If other development parameter are normal, you need not to worry. Leave her free on floor and encourage her to move towards you. If it fails after a week or so, consult pediatrician.

Dear Mom, You should not give formula, and you should give her Exclusive breastfeeding. Crying may not be equivalent to hunger. If your baby is passing 6 or more urine per 24 hour, then breastmilk is sufficient. If you still have doubt, weigh her once a week . if she is gaining more than 140 gm per week then she is having enough milk. Benefit s of Exclusive breastfeeding are many, u can find out from net, and definite ly formula can be potentially harmful. So please please give your baby exclusive breastfeeding that is the best gift you can give to her

Sir my son is 3 years old with undescended testes. What should we do to cure this? please guide.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You must have seen your doctor. It has to be seriously taken. Untreated, it can lead to cancer. A pediatric surgeon may bring it down or remove as it depends on whether undescended testes is present in the inguinal canal.

Hello lybrate-user, first of all confirm that fever is present or not. Also loose motion can be due to recent change in dietary pattern or infection. Try exclusive breast feeding and if not possible sterlization of feeding utensils is very important. If fever and loose motion persists contact paediatrician immediatly.
