C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
ARE YOU WORRIED THAT YOUR BABY VOMITS ALL THE MILK IT TAKES.
Most mothers complain this.Whereas the real condition in majority of cases is not a disease "vomiting" READ ON. YOur baby is possetting.

Possetting
What is possetting?

Possetting is normal in small babies. It's when small amounts of milk are brought back up. It's often why parents have a cloth with them after a feed to catch the posset which often bubbles through baby's lips after a feed


What causes possetting?

Often when your baby's stomach is full, milk can come back up. Babies often posset a little when burping, bringing up the milk often with swallowed air or wind.

In a baby the muscular valve at the end of their food pipe, which acts to keep food in the stomach, hasn't developed properly yet.

What are the symptoms of possetting?

Bringing up about a few teaspoons worth of milk after a feed.

It's non-forceful and tends to dribble out.

How is possetting treated?

If it is just possetting your GP or health visitor will give you reassurance that is it quite normal.

They can also help establish if it is the more serious conditions of reflux or gastroesophageal reflux disease known as GERD.

What is reflux?

Reflux is more serious than possetting. It's when the stomach contents are regurgitated.

When acid from the baby's stomach comes up as well as the milk, this can be painful. About half of babies will experience some form of reflux during their first year. As the muscular valve gets stronger, your baby is better at keeping food down.

How to tell the difference?

If your baby shows discomfort when feeding, such as arching away, refusing to feed and crying, it can be a sign of reflux. She may also frequently vomit or spit up more than normal possetting, and cough a lot, including at night, with no other sign of a cold.

If your baby displays any of the above symptoms check with your GP. Reflux is quite common. It tends to peak between one and four months and normally ends by 12-18 months.

How to alleviate reflux?

It can often be successfully controlled by simple remedies: For example:

More small feeds to prevent your baby's stomach getting too full.
Keeping him upright during and for at least half an hour after a feed.
Avoid tight clothing, particularly around your baby's stomach.
Ask your doctor or health visitor for advice.

Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

If reflux is very severe there can be complications like damage to the oesophagus ( oesophagus), or long-term problems and this is diagnosed as gastro-oesophageal reflux disease ( GERD).

Symptoms may include: vomiting, failure to put on weight, coughing and breathing problems.

If your baby vomits bile which is green, has repeated projectile vomiting or vomits blood seek medical advice straight away. Symptoms like bloody stools (poo), abdominal distention, excessive crying or if baby keeps refusing feeds may also be signs of GERD, and again should be checked by a medical professional promptly.

It is rare for infants to suffer from GERD but bringing milk up is very common for most babies, who tend to grow out of possetting or reflux by 12-18 months.

True. For ear infection we need higher doses for longer duration to cover up deep seated infection & avoid further complications. Your faith in medicine & trust in doctor will boost your recovery.

it might be the breast milk amount is less or the nipples retracted / not well formed. Consult and show your obstetrician. Take lactohil pwder twice daily with milk. Retracted nipples can be massaged and pulled out with vitamin E oil gradually

It is normal. You may give all items but not in a day. Give him one item for 2 to 3 days and then switch over to other item gradually.

My son is entering middle school in the fall. What advice can I give him if he finds himself on the receiving end of cyberbullying?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place using electronic technology. Prevention of cyberbullying: Parents and kids can prevent cyberbullying. Together, they can explore safe ways to use technology. -Be Aware of What Your Kids are Doing Online. Talk with your kids about cyberbullying and other online issues regularly. Know the sites your kids visit and their online activities. Ask where they’re going, what they’re doing, and who they’re doing it with. Tell your kids that as a responsible parent you may review their online communications if you think there is reason for concern. Installing parental control filtering software or monitoring programs are one option for monitoring your child’s online behavior, but do not rely solely on these tools. Have a sense of what they do online and in texts. Learn about the sites they like. Try out the devices they use. Ask for their passwords, but tell them you’ll only use them in case of emergency. Ask to “friend” or “follow” your kids on social media sites or ask another trusted adult to do so. Encourage your kids to tell you immediately if they, or someone they know, is being cyberbullied. Explain that you will not take away their computers or cell phones if they confide in you about a problem they are having. -Establish rules about appropriate use of computers, cell phones, and other technology. For example, be clear about what sites they can visit and what they are permitted to do when they’re online. Show them how to be safe online. Help them be smart about what they post or say. Tell them not to share anything that could hurt or embarrass themselves or others. Once something is posted, it is out of their control whether someone else will forward it. Encourage kids to think about who they want to see the information and pictures they post online. Should complete strangers see it? Real friends only? Friends of friends? Think about how people who aren’t friends could use it. Tell kids to keep their passwords safe and not share them with friends. Sharing passwords can compromise their control over their online identities and activities.

Hello, library user, you are lucky enough that your baby sleeps in the night as in most of cases, babies do not sleep in the night & cry for the whole night. However, she should not be left for 6 hrs, continuously without feeding & be breastfed, three hourly. Inculcate your expertise to manage your baby to sleep ,thereafter. Tk, care.

Why has your son stopped latching? It could be because you must be giving formula feed by bottle. If you give formula feed by cup and spoon ,he may latch at your breast. If he latches and suckles at breast your milk will increase You must eat balanced diet and drink lot of water and take a 1 l milk or milk products per day to increase your milk There are medicines to increase milk Don't worry just try your best.
