Hi lybrate-user, as you had described the problem seems to be a serious one need to detail evaluate the patient clinically as well as battery of investigation, for that patient require admission in the hospital, if blood in vomiting needs to do endoscopy and further management required.

You need to train baby to accept solid food. Dietary discpline is important & never succumb to undue demands , never offer him replacements of a home made wholesome diet. Have patience he will take normal diet as hunger is bigger than tantrums.

If breast milk not come after two or three day of birth we can give any other milk like cow, buffellow or goat to child?

Hello lybrate-user, breast milk flows when baby sucks at breast. Feed your baby every 2-3 hours by letting it suck at breast for atleast 10 minutes on either sides. Have healthy diet urself, & ask your gynecologist to prescribe meds to increase milk flow. If nothing helps you can opt for formula milk/cow/buffallo's milk. Goat milk is not recommonded as its deficiant in folic acid.

I understood that your son developed swelling on face and penis after one month of passing blood in urine that is now for 3 months and nothing abnormal was detected on investigation at that time and now he is free from blood in urine. There must be some reason for blood in urine. Any way, Pls get done his urine R/E, CBC and Serum Protein analysis and inform.

It is very possible that the sores are due to too much face to face contact. The child can also get common cold and cough due to this. You can gently and respectfully ask your elders not to do it often, telling that the doctor has asked you avoid it.

What is the treatment for breathing problem due to gastritis?

DM - Gastroenterology
Gastroenterologist,
Gastroesophageal reflux can cause sore throat,voice change,chronic dry cough, sinusitis and even chest congestion and asthma. These are called the extra esophageal manifestations of GERD. The best way to confirm the diagnosis is 24Hrs esophageal ph monitoring which is available at most tertiary care hospitals or dedicated Gastro centers. However you can try medicines that reduce acid secretion for 2 weeks,sleep with head end raised by 6 inches. If no benefit even at 2 weeks you need to be evaluated by a pulmonologist and gastroenterologist.

Thanks for the question, please provide his food pattern in detail so that we can know what to suggest exactly. Till then you can try to know his need what he wants. Either he do not prefer to eat food or he did not like the food. What he prefers more like sweets, spicy, salted, or sour etc. Try to avoid conflicts at the time of food. No tv during meals. Chat on food items how they can be beneficial for our body can bring his interest in food. Please feel free to ask more.

By this age baby must have started walking a few steps. Either he has no been trained even to stand or there is some developmental problem. Get him assessed by pediatrician. His wt is near to normal for his age. Give him good nourishing home made diet rich in protein, green vegetable and fruits.

All children do get cold due to viral infection 2-4 times a year. If the child is well in between and progressing well, nothing to be worried upon. Treat as per symptoms. Antibiotics are also not required.

Get a complete blood tests done if everything is fine as per her pediatrician, then just keep patience. At around this age such things are very common. There are repeated episodes of viral illness.

For repeated cold, do not use any antibiotic. To increase immunity, give vitamin a 60, 000 units daily for 3 to 4 days. Give him food of his taste, if he refuses one item, try another, not all at a time. Don't force feed.

The baby not getting enough milk is a frequent, unnecesaary worry among the young parents. First of all it almost never true. Weighing the baby before and after the feed on an accurate electronic scale can give an idea of how much milk the baby suckled. Second test is to manually express the breast and see. If the nipples are not inverted, the baby can be encouraged to suckle frequently so that feeding gets established. If the nipples are inverted then, a nipple shield can be used. Correct positioning and latching of the baby is of utmost importance. A trained person can help with this. There are some drugs such as perinorm which can be given to the mother as a galactagouge. The mother's fluid/foodintake should be increased and she should be constantly motivated, supported and assisted till the feeding gets established.
