Hello thanks for the query the growth and development of a baby suffering from hydrocephalus depends on the severity of involvement of brain. If the cortical thickness is very less and there is severe ventricular dilatation the outcome is poor. Please attach the report so that I better able to help you out. I hope she must has undergone hearing and visual assessment as there is high chance of hearing and visual impairment in such condition. Physical rehabilitation helps in recovery. Regards.

My baby is one month old. On routine check up doctor counts his heart beat which is 180 bpm. He ask for echo test. Echo test done and one line is in bold letters of report. That is patent foramen ovale left to right. Is this normal ? Then we show report doctor he said that hole is very minor it will close within 3 months. Is it true that it will close automatically after some months. Please suggest me in detail.

Yes some tiny holes do close on its own as the baby grows but you have to be extra careful in observation of blue color on exertion like crying, not getting infections, getting vaccinations on time (this has to be observed for every new born baby up to a year- 1st summer/winter & autum is difficult for every baby) good luck and take care.

Fever always has a cause for it. You can treat fever with paracetamol and meftal p. If the fever still does not come down, I suggest giving tapid sponging until the fever is less than 100 f. Sponging is the most effective treatment of fever! however as I said earlier, we should find out the cause of fever, if infection, than the focus of infection and treat accordingly. If it is due to viral causes, supportive treatment for a couple of days would be sufficient. Keep the baby clean, prevent the baby from rapid climate changes, and make her/him drink lots of fluids. Your baby will do well. Feel free to contact anytime!

Hello. I can understand how difficult it is to manage in such situations. Short lived diarrhoea is very common in children whenever a new food is introduced or the type of food is changed. If your baby is not lethargic, eating and drinking and playing, please do not worry. Offer her who-ors liberally. If any concerns, please see a paediatrician in-person for an assessment.

Even if he is not consuming milk if he is taking vegetables rich in calcium like cabbage, broccoli etc it's enough. Boost can be added to milk if he likes. You can also give calcium tablets.

Weaning should be done at 4 months and you are giving wrong thing which is biscuits. Maida is not advisable in first 9 months. If at you wanna start early weaning. That too shall be after 4 completed months not now. When you start weaning. You shall first give simple things like dal water, rice water, thin crushed khichdi, kheer, sheera, crushed and pre boiled potato tomato. Porridge upma ragi dalia sattu. Etc. One by one. Weaning is slow and complimentary process to breast feeds so never reduce breast feeds on first 6 months and shall be continued till a year. Regards.

A nine month old is ready to eat from the family pot provided that the food is non spicy and wholesome. Offer the baby whatever is cooked in the house. Regular foods like dal, rice, khichri, mashed roti, boiled egg etc can be started. You can also give suji kheer, halwa, soups (Veg and non Veg) and chappatis soaked and mashed in dal,soup or dahi. A small amount of extra butter or ghee may be added to in the food. This adds to caloric value and helps the child gain weight. Fruits such as banana/mango can be given. Breast feeding should be continued.
7-8 kg at 9 months is good weight at this age. It is not necessary to add powdered badam etc. The tiny particles of badam can cause problems. Wait till the child at least one year old.
