Hi my six months baby girl is crying very much. I have visited a doctor and he said that the baby is taking air during breast feeding. Is it true? what should we do during breastfeeding to avoid it?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
What is weight? is she growing normally in spite of crying? if yes then, supporting the child by taking in lap, moving around by taking him on shoulder is needed. Some babies do cry for no reasons, they need feeling of security, tactile comforting, talking to him. It is passing phase and not going to last long. Meanwhile you can try giving colimex drops as and when required.

My 3 month son is not doing his potty since 6 days. What to do. Is there any problem ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
For a breas fed 3 month baby this is not a serious problem. Is the baby active and feedong well? don't worry. He will pass in due course. Ene upto one week is acceptable. If you are bottle feeding that is a cause. Otherwise, some tests have to be done. You ask privately with all details. For the time being, put a dulcolax suppository in his anus and he will pass motion. Contact me privately.

Ideal milk for babies is breastmilk especially for babies with milk protein allergy. Sometimes even soya milk also can cause allergy. If absolutely can't give breastmilk & tolerating soya milk you can continue with the same.

If you bottle feed then, you have to stop bottle and feed from a cup or glass. GIve him more water and fiber rich homemade foods. YOu need to check his thyroid status as hypothyroidism can also cause constipation.

My 5 year old daughter has been diagnosed with Viral Warts on her face. She has warts of multiple size - some big, some small but mainly concentrated on her chin and jaw. The doctors I consulted say there is no medicine for Viral warts. But her face is looking bad because of the warts. Please can someone guide what can be done?

At this age babies stool colour sometimes vary but as long as no other concern and feeding well, we don't need to give medicine. Just monitor feeding and urine output and if fine then we can keep watch only. Take care.

My baby 4 months old, her eye in infection and eye under in yellow type (chip-chip) dust. I given the mezol eye drop. Please advice me.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
Hello Mezol contains decongestant Naphazoline and it won't help in infection.I would suggest you to use ciplox eye drop 1 drop each eye 4-6 times a day. First wash your hand with soap properly and then clean the eye from inside to outside with the help of cotton swab soaked in distilled water each time before putting the eye drop.Avoid Kajal if you are using it.

Apart from benefitting the baby, breastfeeding benefits the mother as well. The prolactic hormone is released in the mother's system during the process and she feels a nurturing and peaceful sensation.

Tilting of head as you say is normally seen and will correct itself. The hand may be temporarily distorted and will be ok in 3 months time.

Hello, you should give him Kindival , 2 tabs thrice daily for a good sleep and behaviour. You should develop the practice of spoon feeding because this the best way to avoid unwanted infections. If your baby get used to having a bottle-feed every time he fall asleep, he might develop an association between the bottle and sleep. He might then find it hard to fall asleep without a bottle. There is a risk of tooth decay Milk is quite high in sugar. Soaking your baby’s teeth in it overnight can cause tooth decay. There is a risk of ear infections When a baby drinks lying down, milk can flow through to the ear cavity, which can cause ear infections. Thanks , take care.

It's not related to loose motions. Some children become unconscious and bluish after a bout of excessive crying. It's called as breath holding spell. It's a sort of psychological problem. Show to a good doctor.

Pneumococcal vaccine is now recommended for routine use as per iap and hence should be given. Flu vaccine is recommended for high risk individuals like those with asthma, allergy, frequent episodes of cough and cold and so on.
