Technically if the parents have any heart disease can affect say 4-6% of babies but with proven etiology. You can easily rule it out. Some drugs can cause cardiac problems so get the list if you are on any medication. But Usually it will not recur. Consult early before conceiving or in early pregnancy.

As you have taken out within seconds, it was not absorbed so no need to worry. Precautionary you may give sugar for 2 to 3 times. There should not be any long or short side effects.

First of all there should be wheeze before giving nebulization asthalin. It should not be given before medical consultation. Kindly visit a pediatrician to rule out urti and lrti or it is just allergic and seasonal.

Whats the maximum amount of or valporate sodium that can be given to 2 year old baby of 15 kg weight for controlling spasms / fits? Doctor is currently giving 5 ml twice a day. I am concerned whether that is less as it was same amount when baby was 10 kg. I thought amount should increase with weight.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
If fits are controlled, no reason to worry.It's doctors job and he will do it sincerely, doctors are trained to deal with illness in appropriate way . If you take up on yourself to monitor drug doses and his medical condition, it will be very difficult to bear tension for you. You must have faith in your doc, if you worry something,please talk to him first.

My baby is 6 months old n we r going for painless vaccination. I just wanna know is it safe for baby or not.

Pediatrician, Chennai
My baby is 6 months old n we r going for painless vaccination. I just wanna know is it safe for baby or not.
Hi lybrate-user! Recently many people are coming up with doubts about painless vaccination. I would like to tell you that apart from oral polio drops and rotaviral vaccine, every vaccine is an injection which involves prick with needle. Of course it is going to give some pain to your child for that moment. Nowadays combination vaccines come with 4 to 5 components so that your child will be pricked only once or twice and not 4 to 5 times. Hope this helped you.

Hi doctor. My 3.5 months old daughter catches fever every 25-30 days. And she has got little cough too. I give her P125 drops (8 drops 3 times a day) and for cough sinarest (10 drops 3 times a day and keflor (half spoon 3 times). What should I do? I am worried since she is too small.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
Small babies get viral infections because of low immunity. Give same drops for fever 12 drops whenever there's fever. For cough give kofarest ped drops 10 drops thrice daily. If any fast breathing you must show to a pediatrician.

We can not predict whether any intercourse would lead to conceiving or pregnancy. Just consult a gynaecologist and take pill 72 to prevent pregnancy. This pill should be taken under supervision of a doctor and before 72 hours of having intercourse.

First of all you should stop bottle feeding. Insist on home nade cereaks like dalia khichri suji ka halwa rice curd rice dal fruit vegetables etc The child should be motivated to take home made cereals. Milk or milk products can be given by spoon glass. I am sure with patience and perseverance the child can start eating cereals.

My child is of 4 months. He got loose motion due to infection because I feed him through bottle also please suggest me remedy.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
Dear , firstly, if mother's milk is adequate, don't give him bottle feeds. If not adequate, give him only infant milk formula, not open cow milk. Also, although tedious, katori/spoon feeding is more hygienic. If you have to use a bottle, then make sure you use a sterile bottle every time, and make sure gaps between feeds are at least 3 hrs.

When Will My Newborn Start Teething?

Panchkula & Delhi
Mother and Child Care, Panchkula
When Will My Newborn Start Teething?

Tooth eruption is not only a sign that your child is acquiring the ability to tear, bite, and chew food but it also effects the baby's weight gain, immunity strengthening and development of the brain indirectly.

It is observed that most babies get their first tooth at around 6 months after birth, but they may start gnawing as early as 3 months or as late as 14, and may vary from child to child.  This depends on many factors, one of them being as when the parents started sprouting teeth and whether or not your baby was a preemie. In case of premature and low birth weight babies there may be a delay in their first tooth eruption. Children should have a full set of primary teeth by the time they are almost three.

Babies generally undergo the following Teething Timeline:

  • 6 months: lower central incisors

  • 8 months: upper central incisors

  • 10 months: lower and upper lateral incisors

  • 14 months: first molars

  • 18 months: canines

  • 24 months: second molars

Symptoms of Teething:

  • Babies start gnawing to relieve the pain of an emerging tooth.

  • Puffy and red gums

  • Excessive drooling

  • Irritation, especially at night

  • Tugging Ear

  • A change in eating habits

Methods to Soothe the Pain:

Teething is a physiological process, no major intervention is needed.

  • Distraction: You can often soothe your child simply by diverting their minds off the pain by any new toy.

  • You shouldn't use teethers and topical teething gels to soothe the pain as they might be toxic to babies.

Symptoms of teething usually disappear when the tooth breaks through the gum. In case your baby is teething and the pain prevails , the following signs and symptoms are seen - high fever, diarrhea, or vomiting, highly inflamed gums or blue gum (Cysts) or any kind of lesion or bumps on the gums. In such case you should consult the pediatrician for further guidance.
