My daughter is 3.5 years old and is on feeding. My wife also wants to leave but my daughter doesn't leave pls help me to leave her feeding as all night she keeps on feeding and doesn't eat anything in evening. Pls help on the same at urgent basis.

The feeding habit is not an easy one to get rid of. Because it has been formed from almost the first day the child is born. And the child has got very used to (almost addicted to) the feeding. As the child grows older, the feeding does not provide much nutrition or fill the stomach, but it gives them a sense of security and safety and bonding with mother. And from the child's point of view, there is nothing wrong in feeding. She has no problem. Problem is always from parents side. Unfortunately, there is no easy method for stopping feeding at this age. In very small babies, if the mother applies something bitter to her breasts, the child might reject it. Older children do not stop even with such things. There are usually only two choices 1) just stop, and let the baby cry. The baby will cry for a day or two, and then, as she realizes that her crying is of no use, and that no one is going to pamper her, she herself lets go and stops. 2) separate the child and the mother for a few days. Let the child go to the grandmother's or aunt's house. This breaks the attachment with the mother. When the child comes back, she will still look for breast feeding, but the intensity of her craving will be much less, for she has learnt to take care of herself without this feeding, and it will be easy to get rid of the feeding.

Correcting your nursing technique can go a long way toward letting cracked nipples heal. Sometimes just the slightest change in positioning will make a world of difference. Feed on the less injured side first, if you have one. Babies often nurse more gently on the second side since they’re less hungry. Apply a cold pack to numb the injured area before nursing. Cold can help dull the pain, particularly during the initial latch, which tends to hurt the most. After breastfeeding Clean your nipples gently, Use an antibacterial ointment if you have an open wound, Take painkillers like ibuprofen about 30 minutes before nursing can help lessen pain and swelling.

Urinary Incontinence in Women

Ask Free Question
Involuntary and sudden urine loss in women is termed as urinary incontinence. Some of the contributory factors to urinary incontinence are menopause, pregnancy and childbirth.

Types
There are seven types of urinary incontinence.
1. Stress incontinence: if normal physical movements like sneezing, coughing and exercising cause small amounts of urine to leak out, it is called'stress incontinence.
2. Urge incontinence: if large amounts of urine leak out during unexpected and at odd times, like during sleeping, it is called'urge incontinence.
3. Overactive bladder: this is characterized by frequent and urgent urination, along with urge incontinence or not.
4. Functional incontinence: if external deterrents or physical disabilities like not being able to find a toilet, leads to sudden leakage of urine, it is called'functional incontinence.
5. Overflow incontinence: a full bladder, at times, leads to unexpected leakage. This is called'overflow incontinence.
6. Mixed incontinence: whenever urge and stress incontinence occur together, it is categorized as'mixed incontinence.
7. Transient incontinence: when urine leakage occurs due to temporary situations like infections or new medications, it is called'transient incontinence.

Causes
Urinary incontinence is not a disease; it is a symptom. Infections, diabetes, or other medical conditions can cause incontinence. If incontinence is temporary, the causes might be any or all of the following:
1. Urinary tract infection
2. Over consumption of alcohol
3. Constipation
4. Too much caffeine intake
5. Consuming carbonated drinks
6. Decaffeinated coffee and tea
7. Use of artificial sweeteners
8. Foods which are too spicy, acidic or sugary
9. Corn syrup
10. Being on sedatives, muscle relaxants, blood pressure and heart medications
11. High doses of vitamin b and vitamin c

However, if incontinence is persistent, the symptoms might be different:
1. Pregnancy: during pregnancy, hormonal changes and weight gain in the body can cause incontinence.
2. Childbirth: normal vaginal delivery weakens muscles that control the bladder, thus leading to incontinence.
3. Age: the bladder muscles weaken with age which, in turn, affects the bladder urine holding capacity.
4. Menopause: the levels of" oestrogen" hormone drop with the onset of menopause. Oestrogen keeps the lining of the urethra and bladder healthy. The gradual damage of the bladder tissues leads to incontinence.
5. Hysterectomy: the bladder and uterus are supported by the same ligaments and muscles. Surgery deteriorates the pelvic floor muscles, thus removing the uterus can lead to incontinence.
6. Obstruction: tumours in the urinary tract can block the normal urine flow. This causes overflow incontinence.
7. Neurological disorders: parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, brain tumours, strokes or spinal injury can cause incontinence.

When my mensuration cycle completed every month with proper bleeding i got a red brown color spot just 5 to 6 days .What is it indicates?

Color of Spotting Between Periods Blood spotting can vary widely in color. It can be dark red, pink, dark brown, or brownish. ?Bright red is usually fresh blood; pink is diluted; brown is days-old blood; and black is very old blood? explains Weiss. ?Spotting may be any of these colors and the rapidity of bleeding and how long the blood takes to get past the cervix mucous will influence color, but not help with the diagnosis of an underlying cause? Pay attention to the color, in case you need to report these details to your doctor. However, color alone cannot tell your doctor what (if any) health concerns you are facing.

According to me it could be ov to some problem of ovaries or uterus. So rule out polycystic disease of ovaries or endometrial conditions of uterus by performing ultrasound or other tests. So go for private consultation with gynaecologist.

Hello not getting pregnant after three years of marriage, is a matter of concern. If everything is normal, pregnancy should happen. You should go to an infertility center to rule out some finer or very minor issues. Archana gupta.
