Your child is perfectly normal. If child is having recurrent infection that means problem is in hygiene. Tell me wash hands with soap before taking food. Use filtered or boiled water. Bath regularly. Keep distennce from any one who is suffering from cough or cold.

Breast milk contains sufficient water up to 6 month of age for every weather. There is no need to give water so long baby is alright.

If wound hasn't healed after 9 month of scratch injury it is a matter of concern. If you mean scar of scratch is persisting, it may be light n may become illegible by growing up. Further suggestions depends on seeing scar.

Please take rhus tox 200 - thrice daily for next 3-4 days. Also -- soak a washcloth in cool tap water wring out the excess water and then sponge areas like your armpits, feet, hands and groin to reduce the temperature. Also, you can place cold, damp washcloths on your forehead and the back of your neck. The cloth pieces should be changed regularly after a few minutes. This remedy is beneficial when dealing with a high fever as it helps keep temperature under control. You can also take a bath in lukewarm water to relax your body. Taking a shower, however, may not be a good idea. Plus, needless to say, take as much rest as possible as it helps the body fight the illness. Note: do not use very cold water as it may cause the internal body temperature to increase. Consult me for homeopathic treatment. Recommend me by clicking on recommend option and leave feedback.

Hello, First you need to be very sure that signs you are observing are of hunger and you are not over-feeding your baby. If breast milk milk is not adequate then you have few options 1. Formula milk as prescribed by your dietitian 2. Cow's milk 3. Goat's milk More preferable is formula milk as it would be sterile and consistent in quality. Please confirm with your paediatrician. Hope this helps! take care.

Care for New Born Baby

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Faridabad

Me Dr Sanjeev Kumar hoon, in Faridabad. Aaj hum baat karenge care of a new born baby.

Ek navjaat shishu kya hota hai?

Ek navjaat shishu wo hota hai jo Pehle 28 dino ka baccha hota hai, use hum navjaat bolte hai.

Navjaat baccho ko hum special kyu kehte hai?

Wo baby ki tendency hoti hai bohot jaldi infection hone ki, bohot jaldi shareer thanda padne ki, aur bohot jaldi unki jaan ko khatra bhi hojata hai.

Jab baccha paida hota hai to sabse pehle bacche ko maa ka doodh pilana chaie. Jab maa apne bacche ko seene se lagati hai tab maa ko is baat ka idea hojata hai ki baccha doodh theek se pee raha hai ya nahi pee raha hai. Aur isi se andaaza lagaya ja sakta hai ki mera baccha theek hai ya nahi hai.

Agar baccha maa ka doodh acche se pee raha hai aur ek bar doodth peene ke baad 2-3 ghante sota hai, 6-7 baar susu karta hai, aur agar bacche ka wazan theek se badh raha hai to iska matlab baccha bilkul theek hai. Aur bacche ki awaaz buland hai jab wo rota hai, iska matlab baccha theek hai.

Lekin agar baccha lazy hai, chidchida pan hai, doodth kam pee raha hai, tatti me khoon araha hai, neela ya peela pad raha hai, safed pad raha hai, iske liye doctor ke paas jana zaruri hai.

Jab maa bacche ko doodh pilati hai, kahi baar maa ko lagta ki mera doodh he nahi aarha hai, ya mere bacche ka pet he nahi bhar raha hai. abse important hai ki agar baccha 6-7 baar aur baccha ek baar doodh peene ke baad 2-3 ghante soe aur uthne ke baad agar baccha buland awaaz me ro raha hai, iska matlab baccha theek hai. Aur agar maa ko lag raha hai ki baccha pet bhar ke doodh nahi pee pa raha hai, tab wo ek kaam kar sakti hai ki jab doodh pilaya aur doodh pilane ke baad agar baccha sota nahi hai, sika matlab hai ki bacche ka pet bhara nahi hai. Iske liye sabse important hai ki maa ko khush rehna hai. Isme husbands ka role bohot important hai, jo ghar ka environment hai wo ekdam theek rehna chaie. Aur maa jab apne bacche ko godd me leti hai to use bhagwan ko thank you bolna chaie  ki," thank you bhagwan, tumne mujhe baby diya hai, mujhe doodh bhi dena". Jab maa aisa sochti hai, tab doodh badhta hai. Doodh maa ke stan se nahi brain se paida hota hai.

Agar maa acche se khae aur zada amount me paani peeye, to bacche ke liye doodh aram se ata rahega. Lekin agar fir bhi maa ko lagta hai ki doodh kam ban raha hai, to uske liye ek baar bacche ko doodh seene se laga ke pila de aur fir bhi doodh kam pade to chammach- katori se doodh pilade. Isse dheere dheere maa me doodh badhta jaega aur ooper ke doodh ki requirement bhi kam hojaegi. Bacche ka pet bharne lgega aur baccha fit bhi rahega.

Chote babies ke sath risk hota hai, thanda padne ka. Chote babies Kabhi-Kabhi 40 Degrees temperature me bhi thande pad jate hai. To iske liye sabse zada important hai ki bacche ko head se toe tak cover karke rakhna chaie. Topi zarur pehnani chaie.

Ek maa apne bacche ko touch karke he bata sakti hai ki bacche ko thand lag rahi hai ya nahi lag rahi hai. Agar maa ne bacche ko hath lagaya aur fir apne pet ko hath lagaya, agar dono garam hai, iska matlab baccha ekdam theek hai. Agar hath thanda hai, aur pet garam hai to matlab bacche ko thand lag rahi hai. Aur agar dono thande hai, to baccha serious hai.

Aaj kal sabke ghar me sari facilities hai, air conditioner hai, to aise me bacche ko garam rakhne ka sabse accha tareeka hai ki maa apne bacche ko seene se lgale aur baar baar doodh pilana. Maa ke doodh pilane se, maa ko bohot faede hote hai, jese ki maa ko cancer se bachaav hota hai, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, aur maa emotionally khush rehti hai.

Agar aap is vishay me kuch aur janna chahte hai to aap Lybrate ki website pe jaa kar, login in karke contact kar sakte hai.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Vitamin D deficiency is quite common in infants and children. It can be corrected by giving Vitamin D3 liquid or drops. There are many brands available. Secondly my advise pleae take an X-ray of the knee and wrist of the child and take radiologist's opinion to see if there is problem with bone growth. Start Vit D supplements. Plus milk and exposure to sun also are helpful. Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user yes CVS will definately will help you for diagnosis. But it should be done by skilled person as their is risk of limb defects in baby and risk of abortion too. Their are non invasive tests are also available to detect mutation in baby.

Since baby is ok but passing stool 8 to 9 times that too after feed is not abnormal if gaining weight properly. It is due to gastrocolic reflex. Your baby is still short of expected date of delivery by 9 days. If he is being fed properly, he must be weighing about 2700 gm now if his birth wt was about 2200 gm. So need not to worry otherwise consult doctor.

Hello Dr. my son is 9 years old is suffering from bed wetting problems but only in night. I scolds him sometimes but he is not overcoming from this problem till now. What should I do please help and reply. Regards.

Scolding makes the condition worst. Stop scolding. Take it easy. If he has started bed wetting after dry period of 2-3 years after age of 3 years and urine R/E is normal, ask him to go bath room before retiring at about 10 O' clock. Do not make him conscious of his act and do not show your or any family member's unhappiness. I hope he may come out of this.

As per your daughter's weight 6.6 kg, for fever she needs around 100 mg of calpol and if fever did not reduce then meftal should be 26 mg. Both doses are high and interval is less. Please give her plenty of water and ors at least 330 ml in next 4 hrs. Keep a gap of 4 - 6 hrs between doses.

His weight is a little high, but that is not a big worry. And normally, children learn to stand with support by eleven months and learn to stand and walk without support by 12 to 18 months. I think your friends son is okay, nothing to worry about or panic about.

Probably she is late in development and will over come it in due course. I can suggest you do her cbc, tft and send me the report. A speech therapist can help if needed.

Dosage is correct, don't doubt on your pediatrician. But in viral upper respiratory infections don't give medicines repeatedly. Home made remedy will all that is required.
