Nothing to worry. 2-3 times weight gain in 5-6 months is sufficient. Important is the mile stones. Like social skills. Turning to prone position etc are important. If your baby is good at those things. Nothing to worry. Start giving swarna prashana that may help your kid in all aspects.

If she is active and has no other complaint like feeling week headache or poor in study than nothing to worry, active children generally don't gain much weight, still you want her to be fat feed her lot of rice kheer and potato and make her sit in front of tv whole day, she will gain lot of weight.

Give additional milk to mother she should drink at least a litre of milk daily along with her regular diet, it will increase her milk production, ensure that she gets adequate rest, breast milk is best for baby at least till 1 yr of age, avoid giving tinned foods, home made food is best for baby, can start with rice water, light moong dal.

Hello. Can I give Pediasure nutrition powder to my daughter. She is one year 2 months old. Please suggest.

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.

You should give only mother's milk fo 6 months. Breast milk contains enough water to quench the thirst of baby, all prelacteals including gripe water should be avoided.

Hi Lybrate user, your baby is too small, so don't give her allopathic medecine if necessary you give homoeopathic cough syrup (Tussistin-Dr. Willmar schwabe lndia pvt. Ltd )or Bapi cough syrup. Don't use at a time both pathy it's will be harmful for same disease take care. If need contact with me privately.

It is very important to teach your child that nobody should be touching his/her private parts except the doctor or nurse for health-ups.

Winter is coming, keep babys warm.

My daughter is 4 yrs old. When I am about to feed her anything she starts crying. It may b breakfast or lunch or dinner. Why does this happen with her? her weight is 15 kgs.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Her weight is in normal range. Probably like all anxious parents, you are trying to control her which she doesn't like. under this condition what else she can do? Tell me. Your anxiety makes you forget that she has a mind of her own, which would not like to be dictated by others.Live her alone, love her unconditionally. Let her exercise her choice about what,when and how to eat. Then she will be more receptive to your advice. Practice what you preach, eat everything in front of /with her, whatever you want her to eat. Hope this helps.

Parenting tips for Raising Teensagers
You would have noticed that your child who was so eager to help out and please you earlier is no longer responding to you that way. They must be teenagers! Don't despair.Its natural and healthy for them to break away emotionally from their parents at this age. This will help them to become well adjusted adults. Here's how you can give them their space, yet gently guide them during this phase.
1. Give children some space: Giving them a chance to establish their own identity, giving them more freedom, is essential to help them establish their own place in the world. But it doesn't mean that if your child is moving around with a bad crowd or doing drugs you don't say anything. Let them explore and experiment with things that are not very risky. Eg. Catching a bus, auto. Going out with friends to a mall, going for tuitions on their own etc.
2. Choose your battles wisely: Don't lock your horns with them over cleaning up, sleeping late, coming back 1 hour late etc. Save your enquiry for more serious matters like permanent tattoo, going out late into the night and not keeping you informed, bad company etc.
3. Invite their friends over for a meal: It helps you to see who your child is meeting with and also to send a message that you are not rejecting them outright without any valid reason. Children see it as a mark of respect and fairness when you meet and talk to their friends. Also it helps them to see how their friends talk with you. Outright rejection of friends can bring on huge aggression and antagonism.
4. Decide rules and discipline in advance: If it's a 2 parent family, then it's important for the parents to have their own discussions first and come to a common consensus about what is acceptable and what is not. What will be the consequences of not following through with what was earlier negotiated. Remember that Consequences need to be discussed with your child too and should be fair for him/her.
5. Talk to your teens about the worst case scenario: whether it's taking drugs, pre marital sex, driving rashly or running away.The kid must know the worst that could happen. Let them see movies which showcase this as they get impacted by visuals more than dry conversations.
6. Tell them that you are available: When kids start experimenting and taking risks, they can land up in sticky situations like out of pocket money, a flat tyre, friends not showing up, not getting what they expected to happen. Let them know that you are available no matter what. Give them your confidence and trust. Teach them how to think of options if stuck in a bad spot. Tell them that you will come and pick them up if they can't come back on their own.
7. Keep the communication lines open: Don't instruct or interrogate them. Talk and share with them about your own life. Even a difficult day at work. This teaches them that's it's ok to talk to you even if something has gone wrong. Don't judge them. And if they are not ready to talk just then, then let them know that you can wait and you know how it's like to have a bad day.
8. Let them feel guilty: This is a hard one for some parents who come on too quickly to protect their children from feeling guilty when they have done something wrong. If your child has hurt someone or done something wrong, then it's important that they know how to deal with guilt. It's healthy to have some guilt rather than no remorse or guilt at all. This will help the children to stay within socially acceptable behaviours and norms.
9. Be a Role Model: Your actions are more noticed than your words! Your role will be important in helping them become morally, socially and ethically grounded person. If they have a healthy role model from early childhood, then it's less likely that they will take bad decisions as a rebellious teen.

Concentrating, grasping and retaining abilities generally vary from individual to individual. Different individuals have different rasping and retaining levels as per there iq levels. Just make the child do yoga and meditation to increase the concentrating power. There are no medicines to increase the brain power. You can try some home tips like having an almond soaked in water overnight daily and some walnuts. There is a syrup from himalaya named mentat which you can try which they say improves memory power! just have patience your child will overcome this!

Hello , dandruff is basically a fungal infection of the scalp . To avoid getting dandruff , stop oiling especially when you feel the scalp is itchy and flaky as that will aggravate the condition . For now you could apply an anti dandruff shampoo like scalpe etc on the baby's head and leave it for about a minute and then wash it off backwards so it does not go into the eyes of the baby .Use the shampoo twice a week for 4 weeks . Also never tie the hair when wet. Hope that helps !

Hair growth is slow in small kids. Oil the scalp regularly. Feed him proper nutritious food. Hair growth will get accelerated. If it does not happen then consult trichologist.
