Hello. Firstly, try to stop breastfeeding. It will cause some trouble for few days. Bear it. Next, donot force her to eat. That will make her averse to food. Sit together on a dining table and give her a separate plate and spoon. Serve food and let her enjoy it by herself. It will be messy at times, but enjoy it. If she is hungry, she will eat. You and your family also join together at meals. It will automatically develop her eating habits. Happy parenting Regards

Do you have Asthma ?

MD Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi

Asthma is a very common condition that is quite often 'miss' diagnosed. Asthma presents as breathlessness, it is also called as wheezing, due to the typical sound that is often present. The lungs help us breathe in the air , there is a phase where the air goes in called inspiration and when the air comes out its called expiration. Asthma typically occurs when the air pipes or tubes through which the air goes in and comes out gets narrowed. When this happens , there is increased resistance to the air flow and this resistance causes the wheeze or sounds that are associated with the condition.

Some people are more prone to Asthma than others , those with a general tendency of allergies tend to be more at risk for developing asthma. Since the narrowing of the air pipes reduces the air flow, there also is a change in the gas exchange which happens in the lungs, when the gas exchange is suboptimal the body feels the need for more air and this is characterized as breathlessness. Sometimes a person might also have a cough along with the wheezing and this can be misdiagnosed as a respiratory infection when there is none, unless there is a clear-cut evidence of infection that too of bacterial origin Antibiotics won't be useful. ( because a large number of viral infections can also be there).

Many people when they have a cough and breathlessness walk into a drug store and buy an antibiotic or cough syrup and self-medicate. This can be very harmful, developing antibiotic resistance means the next time there is an infection the less likely the antibiotics are likely to work and secondly some medicines can themselves increase the risk of asthma or wheeze.

The treatment of Asthma is very simple, there are very good inhalers that help the tightness or narrowing of the air pipes to be relieved in a matter of seconds, so if you think you have asthma consult someone who can diagnose it correctly and help you live more productively.

FIRST FORTY FIVE DAYS AND TRADITIONS.

We welcome our bundle of joy with old, washed, sun dried clothes as they are almost sterile. New clothes are probably handled by many and may be infected. The breast feeding is started with the help of young unmarried girl. This educates the girl about this AMRIT SAVEN. Mother is given ajwayan water which helps to lactate. On the sixth day bua does the ceremony of chatti by giving bath and putting on new clothes to baby. By sixth day the umbilical cord falls and there after the baby should be given a bath. On the occasion of chatti mother is given all kind of foods and after that she is supposed to have everything including all fruits, vegetables and dal, then ladoos or panjiri rich in ghee, dry fruits. These help mother for extra calories and minerals especially calcium and iron required postpartum. In this ceremony Bua plays an important role and rewarded with lots of gifts by bhabhi for the hard work she has been doing and will do after that, till 45 days. During these crucial 45 days outsiders are not allowed to get in mother?s room as people coming from outside may infect the child . The child is never left alone, a knife or a match boxes is kept besides baby, it is a primitive method to save the baby from animals and strangers. The God (baby and mother) has come and the duo should be prayed (taken care) and not do pooja or attend functions

Raising a child with Downs syndrome is challenging. To know which path to follow you yourself need good knowledge of your child's condition. That way you ask specific questions, in general milestones are always delayed in downs which means that they don' t develop social, motor, language, fine skills at the same age as normal children. Your concern about your child is pretty genuine but the truth is there is not one definite answer. These kids need a lot more stimulus to speak than other kids. Do not pressurize your child or make him feel intimidated that way he ll loose his confidence before he fully gains it. I would suggest you look for a teaching program for Downs syndrome in your city. Such programs mostly focus on childs growth and development.

Dear lybrate-user, hope you are breast feeding your baby. As it will protect the immune system of your baby. For cold, use nasal saline drops in each nostrils 2 to 3 times. Let him lie in a head elevated position. Use yashti madhu churnam + honey, make into paste and let him leak it in small dose 2 to 3 times. Or sitopaladi churnam with honey. Heat til oil with small quantity of saindhava lavana (available in ayurveda shop. And apply on chest, lukewarm. Cover him fully when taking out. Don't lie him straight under the fan or switch off ac. Avoid head bath for 3 days. Bath him with warm water. If fever is present, show immediately to your nearest paediatrician.

My daughter is just 2 months old. She has a preference for putting her head towards the right side. While I turn it to the left every now and then, she keeps it there for a short while and turns back to her right. I'm now noticing a slight difference in the shape on the left and right. She doesn't like to use a horse shoe pillow and gets rashes with the mustard seed pillow. Will the shape of her head become permanent as it is now or will it change and get well rounded once she's sitting up and moving around more. I have received mixed responses to this, hence wanted to check.

Don't worry. Its because of the shape. Try to keep her head depends upon all sides. U can do one thing put some pillow or something which keeps it head opposite side. Also during day time when she awake keep bright colours toy or things on side left. So she keep seeing on that and rotate it to all side. She is just 2 months so not to worry about shape of head as head bones are still not fused which will fuse at around 1-1.5 yrs,but try this things if still shape become unequal then other methods are there.

Dandruf or seborrhic dermatitis is common in small babies. Often it needs no treatment. You can leave it alone and it will disappear with time. You just need to wash the baby's hair daily and keep it clean. Any baby shampoo is fine.

She needs to be given breast feed 4hrly ten minutes on each breast. Even now she demand in between than you should give two to three soup like cereal based home preparation in milk or curd half cup at a time. I hope I solved your problem. Don't stop breast feeds gradually reduce number. Never give breast feed after 11 pm. Jitne machine ka balak utne hi ghante ke baad maa ka dudh pilaye. To say 5months old should be fed after 5hrs for 20 min.

Weight gain is best parameter to assess such problems. These phenomon may be normal rather problems or disease and require no medicines. If her wt is about 7 kg, no need to worry. Self medication may be harmful. You may consult doctor.

You may have decrease breast milk supply so you take good nutritious diet with 2 fruits per day take 1 glass of milk with 2 tsf of lactonic granules for 2 times a day n 3-4 lit water per day as dehydration leads to low breast milk be stress free n give much time to your baby i'm sure your baby will definitely suck your milk n report me after that take care.

This is normal in first year of life to have viral infections often as immunity is still building. Normal medicines are ok. No need to give antibiotics every time.
