My sons age is 7 month +. My question is that how much water should I give him in a day?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
If he is breastfed only he does not need additional water, but he is on other feeds by now. From 6 to 12 months, babies do not need much water but introducing some in a bottle or sippy cup can help them get used to the taste (or lack thereof) and consistency of the liquid. Limiting water to about 2 to 4 ounces per day is the typical recommendation as babies make the transition from an all-liquid diet to one involving solids, although some babies may benefit from closer to 6 to 8 ounces per day (such as in the case of constipation or extremely hot and humid weather). For regular advice on child rearing ask me privately.

Hello, the baby should be on mother's feed and follow the vaccination chart time to time. Your baby is quite healthy otherwise. Take care.

Iron tablet (total of 100 tablet) during pregnancy is definitely needed. Sometimes iron increases the nausea and vomiting tendency of first trimester of pregnancy, so some give that from 2nd trimester.

Cystic Fibrosis - Can it be Life Threatening?

Cystic Fibrosis - Can it be Life Threatening?

Does your baby’s skin taste too salty when you kiss him or her? Did he or she not poop after being born? These symptoms indicate cystic fibrosis in your baby, which is a condition that changes the way your body makes sweat and mucus. It also affects the functioning of the lungs and digestive system. The condition occurs from a flawed gene. If you have cystic fibroids, your mucus may be too thick or your sweat can be too salty. Heavy mucus clogging in your lungs may affect your ease of breathing. This is a serious and life-threatening disease, but it affects different people in different ways.

Causes
The gene known as CFTR is present in everybody. It makes a protein which controls the amount of salt and water that are moved in and out of the cells of the body. In case of cystic fibroids, the CTFR gene is broken, which occurs if you inherit two bad copies of the gene. A bad CFTR gene may lead your cells to make the wrong amount of water or salt. This makes the body incapable of getting sufficient oxygen and nutrients, as the body loses them via sweating.

Symptoms
Apart from the primary symptoms, several other symptoms are also likely due to cystic fibroids. The common symptoms which your child may experience are as follows:

  1. Coughing up thick mucus, wheezing and shortness of breath
  2. Sinus infections, pneumonia, or very frequent bronchitis
  3. Development of polyps in the nose
  4. Bulky, oily and foul-smelling stool
  5. Low bone density, widening and rounding of the fingertips and weight loss
  6. In later life, cystic fibroids may cause liver disease, gallstones or pancreatitis.

Treatment
There is no specific treatment for cystic fibroids. Several treatments are followed for relieving the symptoms and help patients feel better, breathe easier and have lesser infections or stomach problems.

  1. Airway clearance technique can help you with breathing as the mucus from the lungs is cleared in the process. There are several ways to undertake airway clearance and special devices can be used for assistance.
  2. Several inhaled drugs such as salt solutions, steroids and antibiotics are used in thinning the mucus, clearing the lungs and fighting infections.
  3. Several medicines are used for fighting the inflammation and reducing swelling in the lungs.
  4. In case your pancreas are not working properly, you can take enzyme pills for digesting proteins and fats for absorbing more nutrients from the food you take.
  5. Vitamin A, E and D supplements provide the nutrients, which your intestine cannot absorb.

In case you experience the symptoms of cystic fibroids, you should consult a doctor immediately. This will allow you to go for an early diagnosis and effective treatment.

Hello. Breast feeding is the best feeding for the baby. All baby usually demand feed after around 2 hrs so nothing wrong with the baby. Pls continue breast feeding even at night. Don't start top feeding just because you r tited. Give top feeding only when the baby is hungry even after bf. Resta you can discuss with lactation counsellor.

Watch the growth of heart, usually it should close by itself. Serial 2decho would help monitor the hole in septum(vsd). If it is asd will need surgical closer. In any case meet paediatric cardiologist.

Hello, it's great to hear you are continuing breast feeding, keep it on. If baby is active passing urine more than 5 times in 24 hours then it's enough milk. If you want then fresh home made juices, kanji water can be tried. Babies in exclusive breast feed don't need single drop of water even in hottest summer.
