Post vaccination complication management in children-

1)Following vaccine injections the child may have soreness, redness, itching, swelling or burning at the injection site for 24-72 hours. Don't rub or maasage the effected area.Application of ice bag will provide some help.Paracetamol might be required to ease the discomfort.
Sometimes a small, hard lump (nodule) at the injection site may
persist for some weeks or months. One should not get worried for this and it does not require any treatment.

2)Post vaccination rise in temperature is very common. Give extra fluids to drink. Do not overdress the baby if hot. Although routine use of paracetamol after vaccination is not recommended, if fever is present, paracetamol can be given. The dose of paracetamol for a child up to 12 years of age is 15 mg/kg/dose, every 4 to 6 hours, up to four times a day.

If fever persists for longer duration,swelling/redness progressively increases or child becomes irritable/ behaves abnormally consult your pediatrician for evaluation.

3 Undisclosed Facts About Breastfeeding, This World Breastfeeding Week

3 Undisclosed Facts About Breastfeeding, This World Breastfeeding Week
3 lesser known facts about breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is advocated to be the only best thing for a newborn. But while it is the most natural thing to do, it isn't an easy process. It is challenging and full of surprises. Researches throw up facts that surprise all. For example: breastfeeding is like a shield against breast cancer.
Here are 3 such lesser known facts:

1. The milk contents - ever wondered what your baby thinks of the taste of your breast milk. Well, the fact is that your breast milk is tailor-made for your baby. From the taste to its benefits, it is a full course meal. When the feeding begins, the milk is watery. This is to quench the baby's thirst. Then the consistency thickens and the milk becomes higher in fat content. This meets your baby's electrolyte needs as well as energy requirement. Want to know something more amazing? through the day, your breasts milk's properties keep changing. By evening, it has higher sedating properties and helps the baby's body meet nutritional demands. This should explain that satisfied smile babies have when they sleep right after their feeds.
2. Variation in milk production - it is okay and natural if you feel you are lopsided. Many breastfeeding mothers feel that one breast is heavier than the other since it produces more milk. This is possible and happens a lot. Our body is not perfectly symmetrical between left and right. This applies to breasts as well and shouldn't be worried about. Because of this, milk production can also vary between both the breasts.
3. It causes weightloss - some women are known to lose their pregnancy weight by breastfeeding. Yes, this is also a lesser known fact. Breast milk happens to be a high calorie food which the baby literally sucks off the mother's body. This leads to shrinking of the mother's body.

My baby is 5 and half months old. She losing weight day by day. What shall I give to increasing her weight.

Pediatrician, Muzaffarnagar
It is important to find the reason of losing wt. If she is not suffering from any disease, it means she has not been properly fed. Proper and sufficient Feeding is only answer to your query.

My daughter is 13.5 years old she has very poor appetite. She does not eat anything in morning (says will vomit or having vomiting feeling ), basically we have seen its more of anxiety of going to school that she avoids eating .on weekends she does not complain of vomiting but no eating. Her weight gain and height gain last 5-10 years is below lowest curve. Worried of both, suggest anything for hunger and height.

Pediatrician, Muzaffarnagar
You have rightly said that it is all due to anxiety for going to school. It is easy to over come this problem by awaking her in the morning earlier by 15-20 minutes so that she can take her breakfast easily. There is no medicine which can change this habit. Increase frequency of her diet in stead of increasing quantity of diet which shall be helpful in gaining growth.

MD - Homeopathy

4 months old baby some are colicky babies. You need to burp her properly after every feed. If she is on any bottle feeds pls stop because that may be the reason for extra gas accumulation in tummy. Do not give so many medicines. Just give her mild carminatives.

Hi doctor Please tell me what food can breast feeding mother avoid. And can she drink coconut water? She is breast feeding to 14 days old baby so please suggest some food for their health.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Yes breastfeeding mother can drink coconut water and eat all homely foods .In general, there are only two foods breastfeeding women should avoid or consume in very small amounts: alcohol and fish. ... Plus, any foods that someone in the family has an allergy to should be avoided; the most common ones are eggs, peanuts, soy, wheat, corn, and milk.

There is no need to give Livesafe or anything and in younger age this may not be a problem and slowly you can make her understand the need for vegetables and a balanced diet
