As your baby is now 7 months old you may start weaning with dal water. Introduce one food every week so that if your baby is allergic to that food you will know. Every week introduce one food. Like rice, wheat, ragi in various forms. For milk continue lactogen2 in proper proportion.

In chickenpox the erythematous rashes starts from the trunk. Initially the rashes are red then it becomes vesicular (dew drop) following which scabs form. It usually takes 7-10 days for the rashes to heal completely. There is no specific treatment. Apply some calamine lotion to soothen the skin and take oral anti allergic like cetrizine. Antibiotic may be needed if there is any chance of secondary infection. There may be other causes of rashes with fever. Please attach the picture so that I better able to help you out. Regards.

Her weight is fine for her age. But most important thing is that she should regularly gain weight as per expected. This you can get vaccination card where you will find a growth chart. You can plot her weight against her age at regular intervals like say 1 to 3 monthly and see whether she is gaining weight normally or not.

You should always mention the weight of the baby when you discuss hie health concerns. Poor food intake can be due to hypothyroidism and check up TSH and inform me .ALso do CBC to know if he is anemic. Next, not important if he is feeding in bottle you must stop bottle and feed from a cup or sipper.

5 Priceless Gifts for Your Child this Children’s Day

5 priceless gifts for your child this children’s day

On the occasion of Children’s Day this year, switch to smarter choices from entertaining toys and noisy video games as gifts for your kids. Enhance their lifestyle by making available gifts that involve constructive physical, cognitive or emotional skills. All you need to do is find the ideal gift for your little one that adds a smile on his face while teaching him something meaningful.

Maintain your own Calendar!

Gift #1- Most children like to know what day it is, how many days until a certain event, or even what the plan of the day is and so on. Some kids struggle with spur-of-the-moment plans. Gifting your little boy or girl their own month or annual planner will also make your world run smoothly. This enables them to write down their own classes, events, play dates or school days.
Benefit- A calendar would make your young one responsible enough to remember important dates and maintain his/her own schedule.

Challenging Games and Puzzles!

Gift #2- Kids love great indoor activities that pique their interests. Some are known to be constructive activities that teach your child a lot. Certain games help in strengthening mathematical skills in children like Monopoly and Payday. Memory or language games too help in adding value to your child’s mind. Rory’s Story Cubes and Q-bitz are challenging games that check and increase visual and creative skills.
Benefit- Games help in brain development and enhance problem solving skills. Puzzles increase creative and novel thinking that help in building your kid’s IQ.

Home-cooking Spree!

Gift #3- If your children enjoy eating or cooking food, they will love this gift. All you need to do is select an easy recipe of a yummy treat and purchase all the required ingredients. To make the event a special one, set a date and time for cooking together. Baking or cooking together with your child is an ideal time to share a beautiful bond while they learn life skills.
Benefit- This special home activity will surely instil culinary values. As a whole this process would also train them to work as team and follow procedures and steps carefully.

A Micro-Library for Kids

Gift #4- Reading is a habit that mostly develops at a younger age and it’s an essential if you want your child to have a strong hold over a language. Books with a message and stories with a deep-rooted moral go a long way in inspiring the young minds. Good reads with a positive layout for kids that you can opt for are “I Believe in Me” by Connie Bowen or “On My Way to a Happy Life” by Deepak Chopra.
Benefit- Books are teachers in itself as they impart knowledge. Good books develop spoken, written, creative and cognitive skills whilst teaching your kid perfect usage of the language.

Telling the Time

Gift #5- You can check whether or not your child knows how to read analog clocks in this age of digitalisation. If you find he/she takes too long to think about it you can think of getting them a cool analog watch with three hands. This makes them want to be able to tell time on it.
Benefit- Being on time is a wonderful thing. Train your kid to be punctual at his/her growing years by gifting them the perfect time-managing instrument.

Colour is not an issue. If the stool consistency is loose and more than 3 times in a day you must take care of hydration and continue breastfeeding.

Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication there will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly and spine block injection is effective for six months and hashimoto's thyroiditis is an auto immune disease where we can control it with medication but not cure it completely.

What's the nutrition food for 6th months baby.
Hi welcome to lybrate by 6mnths you can start weaning foods. Keep continuing breastfeeding, start off with ragi based foods, these are readily available in market or can be prepared at home. Introduce one food at a time. Watch for any vomiting, loose stools or abdominal pain following introduction of new food. Start with 2-3 scoops a time and then increase the quantity. New food can be given 3 times a day. Do not force feed, continue or stop feeding based on child's cues. Do not stop breastfeeding, keep continuing it till 1- 1/2 yrs of age. Don't breastfeed at the time or just before that of scheduled feed. Give adequate water along with feeds. Wait for a week or so before starting new food. Vegetable soups, mashed fruits, rice, dal, sooji based food can be introduced gradually. By one year child should be eating what the family members are eating without any modification. Introducing to ice creams, chocolates, junk food etc as late as possible is better. Avoid artificially colored foods. Avoid food prepared outside as much as possible. Cow's milk to be started after one year of age. Let me know if you need more information.

Improper nutrition will lower your child's ability to fight infection. A 10 month old child needs vitamins, iron and proteins which cannot be provided by mother's milk alone. Avoid giving him ice creams, cold drinks etc give him dalia/rice khicdi with dal, vegetables and curd. Give suji/rice kheer, custard, yogurt. Give him fruits specially banana, apple, anar and other seasonal fruits he can now have 3proper meals. Try variety of things without being disheartened. Parenting is a tough job. All the best.

A 21 day old baby can cry due to many reasons. Babies cry when they are hungry, cold, too warm, or have abdominal gas. Some babies also cry without reason. I would implore you to give only breastmilk to your baby because no other food is required by your baby right now.
