Gas forms in every individual so in kids too. Don't give any medicine for normal happenings in life. Since gas formation is no disease so no medicine and its dose.

Many information are lacking particularly her age and wt, any way don't keep her too hungry to cry and then taking time to bring food, that makes her over hunger to dislike food. Same reason may be for lack of sleep.

Actually when I earlier consulted a doctor he said that my son is very weak as according to his friends he doesn't look like a 6th class boy and moreover if he had played only an hour then he would have a lot of pain in his legs and hence he had a much problem of acidity.

Sir, Mother has to increase water intake, may be 3 to 4 litres per day. No restrictions should be made. She has to suckle the child frequently. She has to sit and feed, later should BURP the child for 10 minutes. Let her eat lot of fruits and vegetables. Food should not be restricted. she has to eat good home made food when ever she is hungry. It is very important. Let her put protein powder in milk, at least 3 times per day. Proteins are important. She can take, eat Non veg. items also. She has to eat food, 5 to 6 times per day. This is because, the entire nutrition for the Baby is from mother. If she follows this, she should get good response within 1 week. Lastly, She SHOULD like to feed. she should not have any stress. Get back to me if there is no response within 1 week.

I always suggest to give exclusive breast milk up to 6 months of age. Breast suckling is it self a good means to increase milk production in addition to good nourishing diet to mother.

You must give freshly prepared, home available, semisolids like rice ganji, kichri etc. You must gradually introduce one after the other as the baby gets accustomed. Mashed vegetables and fruits also are introduced as the baby starts accepting.

I suppose he is not taking any corticosteroid which increase desire to eat and induce increase in wt. If it is not I would suggest to consult pediatrician to rule out any hormonal disturbance and for consoling.

Don't worry. Approx a child is thrice his birth wt at the age of one year. Hence his wt should be around 9 kg. He is now around 8 kg. A little difference is acceptable. He is not grossly underweight. Don't worry.

My son is 7 years old. But he eats very less and shows tantrums on forcing him to eat. We're always worried about this. He's also very weak and short as compared to kids of his age. We consulted a child health specialist and the tests show that his intestines are very sensitive which creates problem in digestion. We tried many cures and medicines but all in vain. Please help me out on this.

In my experience small quanity highly calorie dense stuff like kheer, eggs, soya based food even soya milk are good to provide more calories. Market made dew protein rich powders are also available and works for whose happy to have milk but not rest of food. Few hunger stimulators time being can be prescribed and you may rule out a condition known as" gerd. Chornic cause of gastritis.

Hello Ms. lybrate-user, I understand head lice can be a very irritating experience. Though unhygienic and unclean hair can lead to head lice, but even if you keep your hair clean and wash hair daily, you can get head lice by touching your head to an infected person’s head. Head lice can easily be transferred by brushes, combs, barrettes, headbands or sharing the towels, clothes or even furniture of the infected person. You can treat head lice by adopting both at home treatments that are safe or with the help of chemicals that are easily available both over-the-counter or on prescription by the dermatologist. To get rid of head lice at home, use a fine-toothed lice comb to remove lice. Comb your hair daily with this comb till all lice are out of hair. An important point to remember here is that you might again get head lice this way as head lice can crawl into your sheets, towels, clothes. So dry clean your bed sheet and other clothes in hot water. Clean all your furniture and floor with a good disinfectant. Chemical treatment of head lice gives quicker and more permanent solution to do away with lices. You can buy a good shampoo or leave on chemicals after consulting a dermatologist. Since, such solutions contain pesticides, a dermatologist should always be consulted before use.
