My grand daughter who is just 6 months' old is having problems in sleeping she sleeps only 5-6 hours a day and is constantly troubling her mom to continuously feed. How to manage this? what type of solid we can start?

General Physician,
You can give home made semi solids like khichri, dal mashed and banana mashed and egg yolk changing each every item so that child is not bored with only one food. You can remain in touch with me as personal doctor for regular advice. Ask me privately.

You can breast feed your child as long as possible,but addition of top feed liquids,semisolids & solids is very important for normal growth of child. We recommond weaning at 6 moths of age.If child is eating sufficient,breast feeding can be continued.Usually most children leave breast feed after 2 years of age switching to top feed only.

Increasing fiber contents of diet will help to deal with problem. Too much milk intake is usual cause, reduce it. Increase water intake.

Probably he is having asd or vsd. Repeat echocardiography after 6 months. Most probably hole will be closed by 5-6 yrs of age. Just confirm with your echocardiography report.

Hi, My daughter is 1 month old If breast milk is not possible can we give cow's milk to new born 1 month old baby? If not please suggest.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
We cant give cow milk to a 4 month old baby and can tart giving it only when the child is 12 month old. Cow' s baby is much heavier than a human baby. the protein present in it is quite complex which a human baby cannot digest In addition, cow's milk doesn't have the right amounts of iron, vitamin C, and other nutrients for infants. It may even cause iron-deficiency anemia in some babies, since cow's milk protein can irritate the lining of the digestive system, leading to blood in the stools. Finally, cow's milk doesn't provide the healthiest types of fat for growing babies.So my suggestion for you I to use pwdered milk LACTOGEN 1 avaliable in the market for your baby as thi powder contains protein that a 4 month old child can diget easily thu helping in his overall development.

Is par curable? my son (5year old) has mild asthma but allergic rhinites all the year. Doctors of allopathy said if it is not cured asthma will not go. They have given mometasone nasal spray and montec lc for one month. The problem is that after the course of montec lc is completed ar comes back despite the constant use of mometasone. What should I do? I have tried Ayurveda medicine (prescription medicine) without effect.

You need to continue medications as advised by your doctor and review on a monthly basis. Do not stop the medicines on your own else the symptoms would relapse. We generally titrate the medicines very slowly over a period of few months to keep the child asymptomatic.

Hi Is tear be necessary in natural delivery. Or it can be avoided by some method.

BHMS
Homeopath, Secunderabad
The tear ( perineal tears ) can happen if the baby's head is too large for the vagina to stretch . This difficulty usually happens in first pregnancy but not in all cases. The doctors sometimes choose to give an episiotomy if it gets very difficult for the head to come out taking all the precautions.

Healthy Meal for Babies

Healthy Meal for Babies
Healthy meals and 1 or 2 snacks per day should be the ideal diet of your child at the growing stage.

Hi, I have 3+ years daughter. She eat very less and weak. Also she under weight. Could you please suggest how we can improve her eating habits. Thanks.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
It is more of an art rather than science. No medicines are going to help to improve appetite of active healthy child of which weight is not the only criteria. Take meals together in family along with the child. She will imitate parents. There is no instant way. Keep loving, stop forcing, she will pick up your habits.

What's Swaran Bindu Prashana

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Ambala

Since ancient times, our ancestors passed their best practices of holistic lifestyle to their next generations. Over a period of time they became a ritual that got integrated into their day to day life. These series of rituals are known as samskaras. They are connected with the major events of life such as pregnancy, childbirth, naming ceremony, education, marriage, etc. These samskaras enables us to live a complete fulfilling physical and spiritual life.
Swarna prashana is one of sixteen samskaras mentioned in ancient texts for paediatrics. It is an unique method to build long lasting health and intellect naturally without leaving any harmful side effects.

Swarna prashana is an unique method of giving swarna bhasma (gold ash) mixed with honey and ghee that is fortified with arka, an herbal extracts like vacha, brahmi, shankupushpi, etc. To children orally.

This process promotes overall growth in a natural way. Due to its broader benefits, it is not only useful for normal children, its much more beneficial for children with special needs such as autism, learning difficulties, attention deficit disorder, hyper activity, delayed milestones, etc.

Swarna prashana is one of sixteen samskaras mentioned in the ancient texts for pediatrics.

Benefits:

Benefits of swarna prashana is elaborated in “kashyapa samhita” that was written before 600 bc.

“Suwarnaprashanam hyetanmedagni balavardhanam ayushyam mangalam punyam vrushyam varnyam grahapaham”- ka. Su. 18/ 4-5

It means the following benefits can be achieved:

  • Medha (intellect)
  • Agni (digestive and metabolic power)
  • Bala (strength)
  • Aayush (gives long life)
  • Mangalam (is auspicious)
  • Punyam (virtuous)
  • Vrushyam (aphrodisiac)
  • Varnya (increases complexion)
  • Grahapaham (eliminates the evil effects of planets) 
  • Vaidya vikas nagi is leading in swaran prashana

She is my grand daughter and very healthily born. Recently she suffered with cold and consulted a physician in USA, where they are living now, near Sanfransisco, California. She was advised nebulizer as and when she gets wheezing. Please clear whether she is safe or not, or may lead to Asthma, which is hell of a disease. Kindly clear my doubt.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Kendujhar
Wheezing in children is a very common problem now and many children grow out of it with age. Nebulizer is a safe treatment for wheezing and it itself does not cause or leads to asthma.
