I have one child. He is 5 years old. My sister also has a baby. After watching my sister breastfeeding her baby, my son also wants breastfeeding milk from me. Please suggest how can I breastfeed my son.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You have to clearly and lovingly explain to your child he is big and breast milk is for small babies. And there is no way you can produce milk as god has decided so. Encourage him to eat like you people as an adult (to boost his ego !)

My three year old son does not eat anything.Please do help

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
He has normal weight for the age. Your feeling that he doesn't is generally mother's anxiety. Usually all babies refuse to eat when we force them. Besides they may be eating snacks etc in between which kills appetite. To be extra cautious it' ll be safer to check he does not have hypothyroidism by doing TFT and Hb estimation from a good lab. Keep me informed. Regards

How to prevent a milk buster while feeding ?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
What do you mean by milk buster? Is it flow from other breast you are worried about, It's normal when you are overwhelmed by feeling of love to your child. Relax and enjoy! If it is anything else, let me know.

Jump and play. Stretching does not make any body long rather playing and not putting extra weight and plenty of proteins example eggs,milk etc may help your daughter to grow long.

As per the present reports your baby seems to be normal, need not worry about the hb value if its above 10 as it fluctuates most of the time, give a proper diet rich in iron and vitamins like green leafy vegetables, jaggery, dates, carrot, beet root etc. Generally the weight gain halts at this age group and its very slow progress till few years so need not worry abt the weight gain as long as the child is active. Give diet rich in calories if you want the child to gain weight. Giving pediasure after 2 years of age will help in gaining weight.

All children of this age group have such complaints I mean to say parents of such children. Children are very moody, do not force them to eat. As long as they are active need not worry, just keep calm.

Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication There will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly
