My son is almost 4 & 1/2 years old. From past 2 months he has been complaining about stomach pain. since two weeks ago he was suffering from loose motions and I consulted a doctor and also told about his frequent stomach pain. She prescribed Normet and Zinconia and also told to deworm him with Zentel syrup. Now its very frequent and he complains every time whenever he eats something. I also feels that his stools are smelly from past two days. Kindly advice on the same. Could you please suggest any specific diet. Thanks.

If there is no associated symptoms with recurrent pain in abdomen, it is idiopathic and has no specific treatment. By passage of time it gets cure on its own. Pain after food may be due to not liking for food. Give him according to his choice and desire to eat. Deworming time to time is required. If his wt is about 16 kg, you need not to worry. All nutritious rich in protein edibles available in home are good.

Milk production increases on it own eventually. As you start feeding her and as her demands will increase, the body will start producing more milk on its own to fulfill your child's need.

Lybrate-user your 4 month old baby may be crying because of hunger, colic or may be requiring your attention. If you are just giving milk please try and introduce some liquid diet so your problem will be solved if hunger is the reason for which your baby is crying.

Research suggests that people with mild eczema who drink oolong tea three times a day may show improvement in itching and other symptoms. Compounds in the tea called polyphenols appear to be responsible.

गर्भावस्था का दूध दोषयुक्त नही है। कब्ज के लिए खाने मे हरी पत्ते की सब्जी फल दे व पानी पिलाये। दूध मे चीनी के बजाय शक्कर मिलाकर देने से भी कब्ज दूर हो सकता है। इसकी ओर भी उचित ध्यान केंद्रित करे इस से चिड़चिड़ापन दूर हो सकता है। खून की कमी आयरन की दवाई से ठीक हो सकती है तथा हरी पत्ती की सब्जी भी सहायक है।

A most of babies who are top fed do vomit small amount or do regurgitate while burping. If he is vomiting continuously he needs to give antiemetic dose will depend on his weight.

My 4-years old child is very aggressive. He is always breaking something here and there. We are fed up of his behavior. He is excessively active and adamant. How do we teach him manners?

The usefulness of all multivitamin syrups is determined by the general health of the child and review of the dietary intake. If the child's weight and height for age is fine, general health is ok and diet is adequate and balanced, there is no need to supplement with multivitamin syrups.

Please don't give any medication for sleep. It takes one year for babies to adjust to the circadian rhythm. Ensure she is not hungry. And not having any issue like colic. Or any kind of discomfort. Make her play throughout the day. And she will surely sleep.

Please consult a gynaecologist in your area and get it done. Without supervision by a doctor doing abortion is dangerous. They will first ascertain whether the pregnancy is intrauterine and then the size of the foetus and depending on your health condition will decide which is the best method for you. Please do not go blindly on self medication. Consult a doctor personally.
