If the baby is active, playful and feeds well , interacts with mother and relatives who usually handle the baby, there is no need to worry or do anything if the temperature is slightly raised .Go checking if the baby feeds and is active or not

I think this is a viral fever and your local doctor has done a great job. In most of the cases fever might take up to 5 days. If child is active alert and there is no other problem after giving meftal p I think you can wait for another 3 days. If fever do not respond after that you must revisit your local doctor for further investigation and management.

My baby is 8 months old. I am giving soya milk to my baby because he suffers from diarrhea every month till now. He started eating food. 3 times in a day. N soya milk 4 times in a day. But stool is not proper. (3 to 4 time)

Your baby's weight seems normal for age (10 Kgs) in spite of recurrent diarrhoea. Why was he put on soya milk- if it was because of a secondary lactose intolerance during an episode of diarrhoea, then you need to consider stopping it. Finally you have not mentioned the consistency of the stools, (semi solid or pasty stools 3 or 4 times is quite normal).

My baby is 4 months old. She is frequently vomiting curd like for every 10 min since 8 hrs ,may I know is the issue.

It can happen normally. A small amount of the feed may come out. Just follow the proper feeding technique and the burping habit. As the baby grows the reflux stops on its own. Please check for other symptoms like fever, irritability, lethargy, cough and cold or if the baby is not taking the feed properly etc. Please do go for the regular check up with the doctor.

Hello. My 2 month baby is too fussy. She keeps crying all the time. And her crying can be controlled only if I feed her. I do feed her even if she is not hungry just to make her stop crying. I am a working women. Please tell me how can I help her as I will have to leave her with a maid from next month (She is not having colic or reflux problem.) If this is a normal behaviour please tell me till when will this be.

The main cause is separation anxiety as you leave her with the maid for the daytime and you have to comfort her when ever you can and be with her all the time when you are at home. She will be fine as she grows up

Your daughter who at 13 years age is overweight needs a proper diet, exercise and counseling. You can consult a dietician to start her on a proper diet along with walking in the morning and evening. She may need some supplements and protein powder so that she does not become giddy. As per her weight she needs around 3.5 liters of fluids which includes water, green coconut water, nimbu pani without sugar, green tea and soup. If she has this low carb, no sugar diet you will get good results. She also needs to learn yoga so that her menstrual cycle starts.
