It seems to me you have not given lesson of self feeding. At the age of one year, child picks up food and other things, it puts it in mouth. By four child should learn take thali or dish and chapati, veg. Curd etc, to eat himself with others. Now your child has to be taught this gradually. It will take some time. Let. Child do it himself or spoil food. He is bound to learn.

Mother fed babies are slow and late to bowel movements at times. It is not the frequency which counts for the normality of a baby's potty. It is the consistency of stool to hold a bababy constipated or not. Pls bother about consistency not the frequency. Secondly in years case only twice or thrice in 2 months! if it is really so, in reliable information then it is a matter of concern. Pls check with pediattritian in person for any congenital (by birth) anal malformation (atritia) or stricture to be ruled ou.

A 9 month baby is suffering from enlargement of liver, what would be it's treatment?
Hi lybrate-user! You need to first check your baby with a Physician and consult with other famous physician in town and verify various treatment options. Treatment varies, but before the situation worsens it would be better to undergo treatment for the same. You can give carrot to manage liver function after cooking and smashing it. Anyway as soon as possible to undergo treatment for the same. You can even try giving homeopathy treatment or ayureduce treatment, but treatment should be given from a Professional. Take care of your child. Let God bless your child. With regards, Psy. MSV.

Going Back to Work After Having a Baby

Going Back to Work After Having a Baby

Having a child is one of the most physically and emotionally trying situations that a couple will go through? This is especially true for a mother. The mother goes through a roller coaster of emotional and physical changes as well as other changes in her job and relationship. So, if you are going back to work after having a baby, read this article to gain some perspective!

  1. Deciding When: Timing is the first thing that matters in such cases. Remember to discuss this aspect with your partner and get some much needed advice from someone who will be sharing the child's responsibilities with you. Also, emotionally the mother has to be ready to leave the child for that duration in order to go to work and be productive. Feelings like guilt and helplessness may overwhelm you at first, but you have to have your coping mechanisms in place when it comes down to it.
  2. Coping Mechanisms: Speaking of coping mechanisms, let us discuss what all you can do to make a smooth transition from new mother to working mother. Finding support is crucial to begin with. The babysitter or family members who will be the caregiver for the child in those hours when you working, should be someone who you can trust implicitly. It may help to interview and spend time with a new nanny or babysitter before the child is born. This will help in setting a pace, understanding expectations and adjusting to each other even as you build trust. Another coping mechanism includes having someone you can talk to a friend, your parents, your spouse or a co worker. It can be anyone who will be willing to listen and offer you advice when you are feeling overwhelmed.
  3. Breastfeeding: If you do plan to continue breastfeeding your child, it would be best to discuss this with your boss or a counsellor at your place of work before you decide to get back to work. Ensure that you are given a separate room that is hygienic and well lit so that you can carry your breast pump and operate it there. Or, you can opt for day care within the office premises so that you can see your child and breastfeed him\her at regular intervals.

The choice of going back to work or staying at home after having a baby may not exactly be an easy one to make, but knowing your options and working your way around them with the right coping mechanisms and support can help you in gaining the right perspective that will help you focus on both areas with vigour and love.

You should continue to breast feed your baby to get relief from engorgement of breast. You may even express breast milk in addition for quick relief.

Your concern is jenune, your baby might have hypersensitive airway, just go through a detailed physical examination, respiratory function test. It might be due to environmental exposure of so many allergent, toxic fumes. Yiu just checked your child with pediatric pulmonologist and stick to the treatment. Bcz childhood Asthama is a chronic disease, only prevented no cure. It resolves spontaneously if you prevent its recurrent attack with lifestyle chane, environmental& behavioural modification with some medication.

After six months of age, babies need complementary food along with breastmilk. Soft, home cooked meals are the best to start with. I am not sure why you are inclined towards oatmeal, but you can give it to the baby if it has been prepared to the right consistency. Try introducing soft fruits like bananas, pureed apple, etc.

There are certain drugs which may react to some individual producing some side/ toxic effect which can be known after use. Pls note the medicine which reacted and told doctor whenever you visit. It shall be in interest of baby to know the name of medicine which reacted before advising medicine. To develop immunity, give him protein rich nutritious diet and vit a 60.000 units daily for a week. For running nose, instill saline nasal drops in each nostril 3 times in a day.

Sir my baby (2 month) is still unable to hold and control his neck movement wht should I do.
Hello lybrate-user, its too early for your baby to have complete control of his/her neck. Neck holding usually is seen by 3 months of age and there may be still some head wobbling with complete control by 4 months. So do not worry às its completely normal and do support your baby's head while holding upright. Hope that helps.
