Can I use otrinoz. 025% baby nasal drops for my 2 moths old baby having weight 3. 8kg and if yes please confirm about the dosage.

Don' t use any drops, it will cause mucosal damage if used repeatedly. If child is taking breast feeds at night, his nose is not blocked.

Hydration is the most important aspect in patients with diarrhoea and vomitting. Give him ors, zinc and probiotics along with ondansatron for vomitting. The dose is based on his weight. If there is persistent vomiting, reduced urine output, lethargy, not taking oral intake or excessive diarrhoea consult a pediatrician. Warm regards.

Is it true that mothers who give formula to babies start producing less breastmilk?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
What is the age of your child? if you give bottle feed the milk production will decrease. It is better to exclusively breastfeed the babies till 6 months. Ask me privately for regular advice on child rearing.

I am sure very 1st time baby would have not demanded cerelac. Do not thrust cerelac on her. Leave her free to choose his diet made in home. She is now 16 months old and able to select or demand what ever she likes.

For constipation give high roughage diet like fruits and vegetables, roti. Give more fluids including water. If he is constipated for along time rectal enema once to evacuate the bowels. Then you can use glycerine suppository perrectal daily for 3 days and then as per need. Give syp lactulose 5ml twice a day for about I month till he starts passing normal stools daily. Important to remember is that high roughage adequate diet is most important.

My Doctor have advised me to breastfeed my baby in every 2 hours. But how much time should I allow my baby per feeding?

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy

My Doctor have advised me to breastfeed my baby in every 2 hours. But how much time should I allow my baby per feeding?
Current consensus is breast feeding on demand. So if the baby is hungry he or she will cry. There is no fixed time needed per feed. If he or she is full then they will stop sucking. Also it is best to alternate between breasts every time.
