Hi. How old is your baby? you should drink plenty of water, liquids, eat good diet. Let the baby suck at the breast frequently. Then if your child is only on breast milk and she is passing urine five to six times, and child is gaining weight, under all these conditions your milk production is adequate. Don't worry t take care.

My daughter is 3.5 years old but she has not started eating everything now can you help me for the same that she should start eating and she also eats chocolates more, also she is on feeding what are the ways to leave her feeding. Please help.

If feeding you mean is breast feeding. Or bottle feeding. Stop it immediately. Stop chocolates. You can restrict it to once or twice in a wk. She is old enough to understand hunger. Keep her hungry and then give her healthy home made but interesting food. She will definitely eat.

Hi doctor. Is lactogen safe for new born babies. My baby weight was 4.25 kg while delivery. Now it's 4 kg. My feeding is not sufficient for him it seems. So if it cries in hungry, we give lactogen often. Is it safe or it has side effects?

Babies tend to loose about 10% of their birth weight in 5-7 days which is soon regained. If child is still loosing weight then you may have to supplement the feeds. Though lactogen is safe it's not best food for babies. Best is breast feeding only. Drink plenty of water, eat healthy diet, relax and keep yourself active and mobile. All these things help on increasing milk outflow. And of course breast feed the baby every 2 hrs. Absolute no to bottle feeding. Add on feed should be given with katori spoon.

Behalf of my wife am posting this question. Recently we are blessed with a baby girl. Delivery was not normal. My wife keep feeding for more than 30-40 mins. She keeps feeding else baby cries. Per day she feeds more times. Can someone pls advise what kind of food my wife have to take? We don't know really is this is a problem or milk is not enough for the baby from mother. How to check it? I heard moms use to feed for 10-15 mins. But in our case duration is not normal. Pls clarify us what we have to do.

Its perfectly normal to feed for 30/40 mins initially. Breast feeding is the biggest challenge that the new parent faces. As long as the baby is gaining weight as required her feeding is adequate.Just grit your teeth and be at it for the first 3 months...then it will be a cake walk!

I have two preterm daughters advice the age till which they will need exclusive breast feeding.Please tell.

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician, Seoni
Hi if you ask exclusive breast milk then it is 6 months after you should start weaning. You have to gradually discourage breast milk because after 6 months water content is increase in breast milk nd baby did not get adequate calories. Up to 2 years we can cont. Breast feed but frequency should be less.

Ina Fanta and toddlers are expected to have atleast 8-10 infections a year. If they are active playful and growing well, nothing to worry. Saline nasal drops and paracetamol for fever are good enough.

Hello. Can I give Pediasure nutrition powder to my daughter. She is one year 2 months old. Please suggest.
Talk to a healthcare professional about whether your child need diet evaluation and management, because pediasure only is not going to solve your concerns. Regard this product if your child is younger than 2 years of age. Pediasure products are not intended for infants younger than 1 year of age. According to the american academy of pediatrics, in india age recommendation 2 year or above, infants under a year old should be breastfed or fed an iron-fortified infant formula.

It may be nipple is retracted and he cannot latch on to it properly. And if you use bottle feed (must stop it) also it can cause nipple & breast confusion.
