Hi welcome to lybrate stopping breastfeeding will be a tough especially at 2 yrs n more. First start with day. Give her something to eat when she wants to breastfeed. Distract her when she demands breastfeed you may have to bear with her tantrums when you refuse breastfeeding her. Have patience and it will take few weeks to completely stop breastfeeding.

Knowing height/weight of the child is important before any comment. He may be anemic if looking pale and dull.

1. It is important to gargle with warm water immediately after nebulization. This measure is intended to wash out the deposits of drugs that if allowed to stay within the oral cavity, will lead to hoarseness of voice and oral ulcers.

2. Following the gargle, drink 2 cups of warm water. This measure will wash out the drugs that is deposited during nebulization on the walls of the esophagus. Thus avoid esophageal irritation caused due to the drug deposited on the inner walls of the esophagus.

3. It will definately help to have a air purifier at home to monitor the particulate matter content in the ambience. This will also reduce the frequency of attacks and enable relatively clean air for the affected, creating comfortable indoors.

4. Take time out to teach children on how to apply the inhaler effectively so as to be able to self-help during acute asthmatic attacks. If available, adrenaline shots of 0.5 to 1 mg may be carried on them, so that in event of severe asthmatic attack, a subcutaneous shot of adrenaline is life saving.

5. Be aware of early signs of an attack, point out these early signs to asthmatic children so that they may stop their activity and take self-help measures.

6. Do not wait for ambulances to arrive in case anybody is in acute asthmatic attack, sit the person in upright position, give them multiple shots through pocket inhaler or start nebulisation with duolin +/- budecort, if the affected person is carrying a adrenaline shot - 1mg subcutaneous should be given on the deltoid of either upper limb of the person.

I have given birth to twins 15 days ago. As my feeding is not sufficient for both am confused between opting for cows milk or lactogen 1 powder as doctors give different suggestions. Kindly support your suggestion with reason.

Milk must be sufficient for both babies. Try to feed babies. It is normal and natural, more you keep your breast empty, more milk is produced similarly, milk is left in breast, less milk is produced. It is like demand and supply. You must consume nutritious diet. Any how, if you feel to give top feed, cows milk may be given though no top milk can beat mother's milk.

Total sleep required by a 2 year old is around 10-12 hrs in a day. Try to divide it in day nap and night sleep so that she eats morning meal too.

Calcium supplementation during pregnancy and lactation: effects on the mother and the fetus.

Calcium consumption is essential for bone development and maintenance throughout life, yet more than one half of the female population in the United States does not consume the recommended amount of calcium. Calcium intake is especially crucial during pregnancy and lactation because of the potential adverse effect on maternal bone health if maternal calcium stores are depleted. There is often a transient lowered bone mineral density and increased rate of bone resorption, with the greatest consequence during the third trimester and throughout lactation. Studies indicate that calcium consumption should be encouraged, especially during pregnancy and lactation, to replace maternal skeletal calcium stores that are depleted during these periods. Because the fetus in utero and the neonate through breast-feeding are dependent on maternal sources for the total calcium load, adequate maternal calcium intake also can affect fetal bone health positively. Proper calcium consumption can be attained through the diet by the consumption of dairy products or leafy greens (such as kale), the consumption of fortified foods, or by supplementation with widely available calcium-containing supplement products. Because many women experience heartburn during pregnancy, calcium-based antacids are ideal for providing heartburn relief, and they offer a calcium supplement to ensure maternal and fetal bone health, without the danger of adverse effects on the neonate.

Relax no need to do anything. If child is taking breast feeds and is active, to pass soft stools once in 5-6 days is normal. If child is passing gas then there is no mechanical obstruction in the gut (serious surgical condition). As regards the tonics iron and vit d drops are okay.

Hi, My daughter is 2 years and 10 months old now. She doesn't like to eat any food even sweets or ice cream. She eats only baby food. That also takes 1 hour to finish each time. When she sees any food she starts to cry and then run away. She doesn't want to chew any food we eat. If I force, she will swallow and then vomit. I allowed her hungry for a day. But no use. I tried many tips like decorative food and all. But it didn't help. How can I get her to chew food?

Some children are fussy about eating. You have to check her thyroid by doing TSH and inform me. You patiently keep trying and she will eat in due course. You make eating a pleasurable trick or game for her. YOU tell her weight and as she grows up she will eat as seen in many children.

He was treated by doctor as per clinical exam. The widely recommended period is six months by world health organisation. If cough and fever recur meet your doctor. Repeat mantoux test does not reflect progress or worsening except special circum stances such as hiv or diabetes or cancer. Many in our country are positive for mantoux because of bcg vaccination in childhood.
