Bottle feeding is a very unhealthy practice for the health of your baby. You must stop it completely and gradually she will start sucking breast. Exclusive breast milk.

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. After every bath, spread a gentle, hypoallergenic baby lotion or oil (Virgin coconut oil or Olive oil) onto your baby's slightly damp skin. Reapply every 12 hours, even on days you skip the bath. If the air in your home is dry, use a cool mist humidifier in your child's room. If your child's skin is very sensitive, don't dress him in clothing that's tight or rough. Also keep in mind that some fabrics, such as wool, can be especially irritating to dry skin.

There are many types of rashes which can only be differentiated by seeing and then advised accordingly. If some one or all in family has similar type of rashes, it may be scabies. Without confirming, no treatment can be suggested.

You are passing through the age when sudden spurt height takes place. Now you must concentrate on your diet also which should include milk and well cooked in oil or ghee nourishing diet. Veg diet is more than sufficient to keep healthy. Take Vitamin D 60,000 units once in a month for 6 months + Calcium 1,000 mg daily.

Here Is the Solution To Broken Tooth

BDS
Dentist, Ghaziabad
Here Is the Solution To Broken Tooth

The treatment will depend on how severely the tooth was damaged.
Breaks can range from small chips to major fractures, so you might need a major procedure, a minor adjustment or no treatment at all. 
A tooth has three layers: the enamel is the hard outer shell, the dentin is found under the enamel, and the pulp, which is the nerve centre, is at the core.
Minor chips are common, and involve loss of some enamel. Usually, little or no pain is felt, 
But if enough tooth enamel is lost the dentin may be exposed which might cause sensitivity to cold.
The most severe breaks expose the pulp, which can cause extreme pain and even bleeding.
If you have a small chip in your tooth, make a routine dental appointment, and try an over the counter pain medicine for sensitivity as long as it is safe for you to take it. 
More serious fractures should be evaluated immediately. Rinse your mouth out with warm water, cover the break with a piece of clean gauze to protect it, and see the dentist as soon as possible. Apply an ice pack to minimize swelling if your mouth or lips were injured, and avoid using aspirin for pain because as it increases the risk of heavy bleeding.

Even if your tooth is only slightly chipped, the dentist is probably going to take an x-ray of the damaged tooth and recommend being gentle with it for a few days.
 A minor chip can often be smoothed out or repaired with white filling material, often without anesthetic. 
Even when a break is severe, a tooth can almost always be saved with a permanent crown if the pulp is not damaged. 
Postponing a crown or replaced filling that has been recommended can place the tooth at risk for a much more serious fracture- perhaps one that cannot be repaired. On those occasions when a tooth must be removed after a fracture, there are several options available for replacing the missing tooth – an implant is often the ideal choice for many people because it provides a permanent solution with a natural appearance.
