Probably u have started top feed. If so, stop completely n put on exclusive breast feeding till either breast is empty or baby is satisfied. There is no reason that milk is not sufficient. Still both breast may have sufficient milk for baby requirement. Feed him every 2-3 hourly or on demand if it is earlier than 2 hours. This practice shall improve or maintain breast milk production.

What should be ideal kids weight for baby girl of 7 years? When it is considered underweight and for treatment? My child is 20 kg any supplements required?

Hello, She should be ideally weighing 20-24 kgs, but it depends on the height, bone weight etc. You cannot go by the numbers completely. Check her immunity, activity levels, her concentration etc. They are better parameters to judge. Feed her healthy homecooked meals.

Hi lybrate-user, Your child needs further testing to know the cause for the fever which is coming since the last 8 months. In initial phase common tests like CBP, Malaria, Typhoid, urine infection tests, etc done. If they are normal, then other tests like TB tests, tests to rule out chronic infections and inflammatory diseases are being done by Children Doctors. In some children in spite of extensive tests, the cause of fever is very difficult to find out, but it is not possible. First it is better to know whether the child is suffering from common repeated infections which are causing fever since 8 months or a uncommon condition. So be in regular follow up with the Pediatrician for further evaluation of the problem with appropriate tests and his clinical examination. Hope I have answered your query.

My son is 4 year old. He is not at all showing interest towards meal/food. Whatever he eats we have to make him eat forcibly. Consulted paediatrician and showed my concern if this is resultant of any worm, but he did not advise any anti-worm medicine. Now I am little worried about possible reason. Please advise what to do?

Do not force feed. Leave him at his will to eat of his choice food n time prepared at home including milk and its products.

Nothing will happen by shaving the head. And the child may get fungal infection if you do this often. Leave it for the time being.

The Pros & Cons of Soy Milk for Children
You can find soy milk lining the shelves of most grocery stores. With a wide range of child-friendly flavors, such as vanilla and chocolate, this creamy dairy milk substitute can be appealing to kids of all ages. Some infant formulas are even made from soy. As with any food item, soy milk has several potential advantages and disadvantages for the children who drink it.
Pros and Cons: Allergies
Millions of children throughout the United States suffer from some level of allergies related to cow's milk, warns the Alabama Cooperative Extension System. The agency says that soy milk can be an ideal substitute as it doesn't contain the lactose protein that can cause kids such trouble. On the flip side, some children are allergic to soy products. Because food allergies can vary widely in terms of severity, consult your doctor if you have any concerns about your child's allergic reactions.
Pros and Cons: Hormones
Research is inconclusive regarding the effect that soy milk and other soy products may have on a developing child's hormone levels, reports Harvard Medical School. Soy milk contains estrogen receptors that may mimic the effects of estrogen, and may affect cancer risks related to breast and prostate cancer. Harvard notes that there's yet to be sufficient evidence to avoid soy milk, and that cow's milk also contains hormones that may potentially be harmful.
Pros: Bowel Movements
Children ages 3 years or younger may benefit from being fed soy milk formulas over cow-milk-based formulas. The National Institutes of Health's MedlinePlus reports that soy formulas help such children experience fewer cases of diarrhea and less frequent bowel movements, potentially because of soy milk's fiber content.


Pros: Calcium Supplementation
Washington University advises using fortified soy milk as a way to ensure your child is getting enough calcium. Sufficient dietary calcium intake among toddlers and children helps ensure proper growth, development and strong bones, according to the university. Additionally, the university says fortified soy milk also contains vitamin D, a vitamin that enhances calcium absorption.

Cons: Thyroid Problems
In very rare cases, soy milk given to infants can cause fluctuations in thyroid levels, which can cause goiters, warns the National Institutes of Health's MedlinePlus. Goiter is the medical term involving an enlarged neck related to thyroid problems. The institute's report that the problem ceases when soy milk is withheld.

My son 3 years old repeatedly getting cold & cough, month 3 times observed, cough with phlegm no fever & other problem kid is active. Doc suspects on allergy. AEC test done count is 468, recommending inhaler & asthalin syrup Pl suggest for small kid don't want give inhaler.

Most probably it is allergic cough, hence giving an inhaler is the right thing to do. Inhalers do not cause any side effects on the body as it is not absorbsed `systemically.
