Hello. Can I give Pediasure nutrition powder to my daughter. She is one year 2 months old. Please suggest.
Talk to a healthcare professional about whether your child need diet evaluation and management, because pediasure only is not going to solve your concerns. Regard this product if your child is younger than 2 years of age. Pediasure products are not intended for infants younger than 1 year of age. According to the american academy of pediatrics, in india age recommendation 2 year or above, infants under a year old should be breastfed or fed an iron-fortified infant formula.

Mother's dengue is not related to child's ill health. You have not mentioned the age of the child. Children less than 5 years usually have less immunity and some children fall sick frequently. Dengue most of the time is a mild illness. Rarely it goes for complications.

Instead of pro nan, give her dairy milk in addition to breast milk, semi solid (liquid) cereal instead of its water one full feed once in a day gradually increasing numbers 2 times and changing cereals or other items now n then, all on demand or after 3 to 4 hours if not demanded. Calcium may be given in consultation of your pediatrician.

As per your history and complaints, looks like you are having mild gastritis, is your vomiting controlled now? do drink plenty of water and take some antacid before food 2-3 times daily, also have some curd or butter milk. Even if the condition persists, consult a paediatrician and get urself evaluated.

Dear lybrate user nowadays we all have habit to google about the symptoms to know about the problem we are suffering from. But google is not a doctor or psychologist. There are standardized procedure for diagnosis. So relax and don't think too much by putting yourself into different categories. It's important for you to make a study plan or organiser. The plan should have breaks in between so that you won't get mentally tired. It's proven that studying for prolonged hours without taking break doesn't help in learning process. So make a study plan paste it near your study table. Set daily achievable goals for yourself. In the beginning may 2 goals per day. Motivate yourself to achieve those goals on time. Reward yourself for achieving those goals. Try these things. If you still face difficulty then take one on one counseling session. Remember that it will require time to change ones habit it won't be changed in one day or week. It's a process. Take care.

You may give paracetamol about 60 mg but I suggest to consult pediatrician to ascertain cause of fever and accordingly treatment since small babies are more prone to become serious.

Any child diagnosed with epilepsy needs proper medication. Precautions, like no late nights regular nutritious diet and exercise will help. You must not miss the medication. For a ketogenic diet can be started only after a metabolic work up of the child is done.
