She is a high risk baby with stormy neonatal period. What you need to know is that your baby is likely to have neurological deficit for long term. The magnitude of neurological dysfunction and severity will be evident later on. But the most positive part is that brain has huge potential of neuronal plasticity during initial period of life, say first 2 years. With developmentally supportive nursery and good physiotherapy and occupational therapy you baby can perform her best. So you think about the positive side and try your level best.

Both are different antibiotics with different action, used for different diseases. You should not use them on your own which causes resistance so that they may not be effective when really needed.

Recurrent fever with high leucocyte counts at interval of every one month may be due to frequent infection. In this age 6-8 infections in a year is common as the immune system is not fully developed. But if infection is severe enough to cause hospital admission or prolong illness proper evaluation should be done. I would be better able to answer if history is provided in detail. Regards.

Along with the baby, the mother also benefits physically and emotionally from breastfeeding. Due to the release of the prolactin hormones, a peaceful and nurturing sensation fills the mother.

Azithral is an antibiotic if it is not improving then cough might be allergic in nature. Get use of nebuliser with prescription of your pediatrician. He would help you for the same.

If you have already started your baby on solid foods, you can cut down on dairy other than your breastmilk. But curd is fine as it does not contain any lactase. So you can prepare a nice lassi for your little one or give him some raita. Those who are lactose intolerant can often handle small amounts of dairy if they eat it with other foods. If you are formula feeding, your doctor may advise you to switch to a lactose-free or soya based formula for two weeks or so as your baby gets over his lactose intolerence. If your child is older and tests have confirmed he is lactose intolerant, then you may have to make some dietary changes like: Feeding reduced portions of dairy-based foods in combination with non-dairy foods. Not giving a large glass of milk and offering a small portion along with a meal to aid digestion. Choosing foods with less lactose such as curd, paneer and hard cheeses, as they are better tolerated. Substituting milk with soyamilk, almond milk, rice milk or fortified fruit juices. Substituting dairy products with leafy greens, tofu, broccoli, nuts, soya beans, dried fruit. Before you make any changes to your child's diet, always consult a dietitian or a doctor. They can help you plan better. In order to maintain a normal healthy metabolism, everything we eat or drink should be close to our body’s normal temperature. However, particularly in hot weather or as a matter of habit, almost everyone likes to drink cold beverages or eat cold foods (like ice cream) without noticing the potential problems that will be encountered or connecting it to the temperature of the food or drink you take into your body.

Healthy diet including all fruits, vegetables, pulses etc is best rather than any medicine. Your pubertal growth takes its own pattern so don't worry about that.

Cows milk is deficient in iron so it can not be used. You have to give him formula milk like lactogen 1.

Foods That Are Ruining Your Perfect Smile

Everybody desires to possess a beautiful smile but poor lifestyle and dietary habits tend to damage the natural white hue of your teeth and add a yellowish tinge to it. Yellowish and dull teeth are among the major factors that cause embarrassment and affect the quality of your beautiful smile.

The following are some foods that tend to damage your teeth:

1. Potato chips- potato chips are high in starch content and have the tendency to get stuck in your teeth. Floss thoroughly after eating potato chips to ensure effective removal of the food particles that get stuck in your teeth to lessen the risk of plaque build-up in it.

2. Sticky food- food which is sticky in nature often has the tendency to stick on to your teeth for longer than most other foods. Most dried fruits also fall under the category of sticky foods that can damage your teeth to a great extent. Rinse and floss on a regular basis after eating these foods to ensure protection of your teeth against damage.

3. Wine- according to studies, wine has positive effect on your health when consumed moderately; however, it is also responsible for damaging your oral health. If you intake a glass of wine at night on a regular basis, it increases the risk of damaging your tooth enamel and leads to its discoloration. Wine can also affect the calcium content of your teeth, cause bad breath and may result in the imbalance of your mouth's ph level. It is advisable to drink small sips of wine without swishing it for a long time.

4. Coffee and black tea- black tea and caffeinated coffee tend to dry your mouth. Frequent consumption of tea and coffee tend to stain your teeth and it is responsible for the discoloration of your teeth. Make it a point to drink plenty of water to minimize the risk of teeth staining.

5. Carbonated drinks- most carbonated drinks, including diet soda and soft drinks are acidic in composition and therefore, harmful for the health of your teeth. Caffeinated beverages tend to dry out the mouth, therefore, ensure to drink adequate water to balance out the negative impact of the caffeine.

6. Sports drinks- most energy drinks and sports drinks are high in sugar content and thus, have the tendency to damage your oral hygiene; ultimately affecting the appearance of your teeth. Replace your sports drinks with fresh natural juice to lessen the risk of teeth damage.

Viral infection is most common cause of diarrhea. It subsides by its own in 5-7 days. Only treatment is that give him home made soft bland diet like rice, khichdi, boiled potatoes, curd, tender coconut water etc along with plenty of water and ors. Keep watch on urine output and activity of baby. If looking lethargic consult paediatrician. But if stool is greenish, sticky or bloody then it should be checked in lab and if any pus cells, mucus, blood or parasites are found then only antibiotics should be given.
