Thank you for your query. It is advised to consult your paediatrician to assess the condition of the baby before anything specific can be advised. The doctor will try to find the cause for cold and cough and manage accordingly.

1) My infant daughter has little bubbles popping out from her mouth after being breast-fed, her tummy seems bloated, is there air trapped in her tummy ? if so how do we remove it ? 2) is it normal for my daughter to breath irregularly ? (shes' just 1 week old) 3) There are times she sleeps abt 6 hours and then stays awake for another 6 hours, is this a normal cycle for an 1 week old infant ?

Burping after each feeding. Child breath rapidly for 10-15 breaths then slow their breathing for 10-15 seconds then again rapidly:- pediodic breathing it is normal. But without seeing child in person it is difficult to suggest whether it is periodic breathing on something else. Please meet a doctor

You can try bronchi dilators like Asthalin Exp. Syrup. In change of season we get mild bronchospasm, which causes cough.

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.

Breast milk is the best milk for an infant. Suckling the baby with peace of mind is the only solution for increasing milk production. You must drink good amount of water and take nutritious diet. If it's not at all possible to feed you can give nan 1.

Stop formula milk, continue only breast milk, add some pro biotic sachets as well as zinc suspension. Consult a paediatrician if it still persists.

Essentially all formulas are same with minor differences in composition and taste. Why do you want to change formula?

Dear, Need to get some details. Is he also having fever, loss of appetite or weight? Any family history of allergy like runny nose, eczema etc? Asthma is a genetic disease. And clinical examination and history are the best diagnostic tools. It can also be treated easily and help your son lead a normal childhood.

My baby is 4 month old. I want to ask whether I can start with fresh juice or not. Currently he is on formula milk.

Why not on breast milk? you can start with rice water, light moong dal, introduce new food slowly, every new food every 15 days - 1 month, juices sometimes being very sweet would cause diarrhoea

Now my baby is 5month old. I am giving only breast milk to her. Last one week I felt that I am not having enough milk to satisfy her. I will not want to give any formula milk. Can you please suggest me some food to increase breastmilk.

Probably baby remains hungry. Please monitor the weight of the baby. Baby must grow 20-30 gm per day, that is 600-900gm per month. Other important reason may be blocked nose.
