I hope you are referring to masturbation, though masturbation is not harmful but anything in excess will have its harmful effects, hence avoid ejaculation at this age.

If the baby is breast fed and not having fever or vomiting, don't worry. Start. Syp Zn20. 5ml daily for 14 days, reduce milk and increase complementary feeds like khichdi,dahi and banana.

The sixth month of pregnancy brings along a larger frequency of headaches along with it. Chocolate, caffeine, dehydration, over exposure to sunlight or low blood sugar levels can be the triggers to it. If taking rest does not help, consult with your doctor or pharmacist.

Ideally child should entirely breast fed for the 1st 6 months. However if mothers milk is insufficient and cow's milk or formula feeds is started then. You can try small portion of ripe and mashed banana, chikoo, mango. Pears should be cooked and mashed.

Don't stop his food during his illness that could be reason for his loosing wt during illness. Add ghee or oil in his diet and leave him free to choose his home made and dairy diet. I hope child shall start gaining wt if he is not suffering from any disease. Supplement diet with vitamin and Iron.

My son is 4 year old and many time he is suffering blood from nose. Last night my son suffering blood from nose around 4 a. M around 15 drops of blood so after some time stop blood after he lay down straight. But in morning around 8 a. M again blood come from nose. Please explain what is the reason and solution for it.

MD - Paediatrics

The most common cause of bleeding from nose in the warm environment is drying of nasal mucosa and picking of the nose. Teach him to avoid nose prick,give plenty of fluids.Pinch the nose for few minutes when it starts bleeding and put nasal decongestant drop 4-6 times a day for 4-5 days. Regards

My son is one year old. He is in a stage where his teeth are coming. He is suffering with loose motion for the past 5 days.

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health
Pediatrician, Hyderabad
First you need to understand that loose motions are not due to teething per se., Children used to put hands into mouth because of teething,this causes infection and loose motions. So try avoid that. So don't worry unless he is dehydrated.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician,
Properly hydrate the baby with ors solution. That may be due to viral infection. As most of the watery diarrhea can be due to viral infection. Start zinc 20 mg daily for 14 days.

Growth of your child is normal so do not force food. You should develope healthy eating habits for normal growth. Forcing foods will result in behaviour disorders.
