In order to give you a scientific answer, about which I am very specific, I need more details like his birth history, birth weight, and immunisation and growth and development history. Also need to know other details. He may be having dyslexia/dysgraphia. You may consult me.

My spouse got cracked nipple problem. She has 15 month baby with breastfeeding. She is using nipcare cream and some antibiotics which was prescribed by her doctor but not getting relief.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Correcting your nursing technique can go a long way toward letting cracked nipples heal. Sometimes just the slightest change in positioning will make a world of difference. Feed on the less injured side first, if you have one. Babies often nurse more gently on the second side since they’re less hungry. Apply a cold pack to numb the injured area before nursing. Cold can help dull the pain, particularly during the initial latch, which tends to hurt the most. After breastfeeding Clean your nipples gently, Use an antibacterial ointment if you have an open wound, Take painkillers like ibuprofen about 30 minutes before nursing can help lessen pain and swelling.

If a child vomits within 30 minutes of giving any medication it has to be repeated. Try to give in small amounts.

Good question but no proven role of any particular therapy. Colour is solely depending upon genes. Not but food or therapy! regards.

Can I continue breastfeeding if I have a cold or the flu?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician,
You must breastfeed her because your breast milk is rich in antibodies to fight against the disease causing virus.In any case,your baby will be infected,and your breast milk will act as vaccine against the virus.

1) my baby sleeps fast while drinking milk, she is one month old, m not sure if I have enough milk or if she is tried sucking and than sleeps. I am giving her lactogen as top up 2) also I wanted to know if lactogen is good as top up or mum mum.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Babies do sleep more during the day. They are not able to distinguish the difference between day and night. Monitoring regularly the growth and development by assessing weight and head circumference it can be decided if the baby gets enough nutrition, it is not ideal to give anything except breastmilk in first 4-6 months. Ask privately for regular advice on child rearing.

Once the temperature comes down they will eat. Try to control the fever with paracetamol, tepid sponging etc. Meantime keep trying feeds in the form of liquids and bland diet little by little.

I hear this complain from many mothers . Your baby cries not due to pain but the sensation of full rectum and bladder cannot be conveyed in word by the baby and they cry and announce ti is time to pee or poop . It is normal behaviour or all babies . Give only breast feed and no bottle feeding. Burp well after each feed

Urine and Stool routine 3.Urine and Stool culture Medicine she is taking rit now are: Muout Plus Jar powder- Twice in a day Rantac Syrup- 3.5 ml twice in a day Nizonide syrup- 2.5 ml twice in a day Drotin- 2.5 ml sos if pain Ambrolite syrup-2.5 ml thrice in a day Some test suggested my pedi are: 1.

U r doing all the best you can do. With all description, you have not mentioned her present wt and wt 1& 1/2 month ago before her illness. Initially her problem was stomach ache two or three times in a day, last for 10-30 minutes. This is usually nonspecific ache/ pain of abdomen which probably is in your daughter as all tests are negative. I presume all suggested test may be normal, may be a little variation in 25 Hydroxy D3 which has no relation with symptoms your daughter is experiencing. If her wt is about 14 kg, you need not to worry. I suggest- to stop all medicine, NO FORCE FEEDING, give her well nourished diet well cooked at home of her choice/ taste and desire irrespective to quantity & frequency of food She prefers. Under care and over care is not ideal rearing. Remain in touch with your pediatrician. If you like, may get back.
