My son is 5 years old but his weight is just 13kg and height is also under average but he is very active pls suggest some veg diet or tonic.

Pediatrician, Tumkur
Indian average weight at 5 years is 15 kgs. 80% and above is considered as normal. Nowadays we don't recommend children to have more weight as it may lead to long term complications like diabetes. Give him for worms and nutritious diet with good amount of proteins.

Care Of The New Born

Care Of The New Born

No matter how much time you spend researching on how to take care of your newborn, once your child is delivered, the first few weeks will leave you frantic and overwhelmed. However, there are a few tips which new parents must keep in mind.
 
Handling a newborn: 

  1. Since babies have a weak immune system and are susceptible to infections, it is of paramount importance that anyone who handles your child has clean and sanitized hands. 
  2. You also need to be careful about always supporting and cradling your child's head and neck since the muscles in his or her neck are weak at birth, and babies only develop head control after six months. 
  3. Never shake your newborn baby whether playfully or out of frustration. Shaking the baby can cause bleeding in the brain or in severe cases, death. Tickle your child's feet to wake him or her up. 
  4. Not only is it important to make sure that your baby is fastened securely in the car seat, stroller or carrier, you must also restrain from activities which may be bouncy or rough.

Diapering: 

Firstly, you must decide whether you want disposable or cloth diapers for your infant. Babies go through at least ten diapers a day (irrespective of whether they are cloth or disposable). While diapering, you must keep in mind to not leave your baby unattended on the changing tables. So get all the supplies such as clean diaper, diaper ointment (in case of rash), fasteners, diaper wipes and warm water, before changing his or her diaper. 

Bathing:

Newborn babies need to be given a sponge bath with warm water and very little soap till the navel and/or the circumcision heals completely. This can take about one to four weeks. After being healed, the baby should be bathed twice or thrice a week since frequent bathing may damage the baby's skin. 

Breastfeeding and Burping:

Doctors recommend feeding the baby on demand i.e. whenever your baby is hungry. Crying, putting fingers in the mouth, or making sucking noises convey that the baby is hungry. A newborn baby needs to be fed every couple of hours. 

Burping is important so that the air consumed during the feedings can be let out since it makes the baby fussy. Patting or rubbing a baby's back usually helps them to burp or pass gas.

This is normal for kids to experience diarrhea whenever teeth erupt in to the oral cavity the change in microflora of the oral cavity leads to sach diarrhea there is no treatment required as it is a self limiting situation and will subside within 1 to 2 weeks. In the meantime you can feed the child good amount of healthy fluids like rice water or vegetable soups.

Hi doctors, My 20 month old baby girl, suddenly got cold, fever and loose stools with vomit, she tends to vomit whenever she coughs, my pead told due to infection from bottle feeding and to stop at once, then to avoid milk for 1 week, so I feed her with juices only, she prefers only orange juice so I give her fresh juice, but is it safe to give orange juice when cold is there? Any way stopping bottle suddenly is also quite challenging, she accepts milk n juice from bottle only, slowly I need to change her.

Hi Your child having viral illness and it seems because of problem of lactose intolerance your pediatrician has advised you to stop milk. Definitely the problem of infection is most probably due to bottle feeding but it is also quite natural that you cannot stop the bottle feeding all at once, gradually wean off the child from the bottle and in the meantime strictly adhere to sterilizing the feeding bottles every time you feed the baby. Instead of giving orange juice, when the baby is having cold prefer to give semi solid foods like Daliya, semolina,kichri, etc to your baby.

It's not a big deal to have photo therapy in initial days as it is needed and however the bilirubin levels are not so high and congenital jaundice is common in new born, so don't get tensed.
