Mother's milk is best for new born baby. There is no need to give other feed if mother has sufficient lactation.

My baby is 5 month 6 days old. She is very active for listening voice sound, try to grab things properly but she is not able to roll over self. While we help her to roll over little bit she goes on her tummy, but can't do push up with her hand but she can raise her head in that position. After some time she cry for going to her back. Her neck is almost stable. Should I worry about that? Other baby are trying to roll over at her age.

Your baby is perfectly fine, every baby is different, some takes lesser time to roll over and some more. As long as your baby can hold her head and sustain it for a while it's normal ,rather we would request you not to put your child through anything where she is not yet ready, just by merely comparing her with the rest of the babies of her age. Allow her to cover her milestones at her pace, hope you have understood that.

I suggest you follow the below for your condition: Take Mag Phos 6x - thrice daily for next 2 weeks and update. Also do x-ray of the affected area. Heat and Ice Packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately. For abdominal discomfort take Nux vom 30 - 4 pills twice daily for next 7 days. Give me a feedback thereafter.

AGE APPROPRIATE CHORES FOR CHILDREN AROUND THE HOUSE
Teaching children how to get their personal needs met and to help around the house is an important and integral part of growing up. It helps them to become independent and also help others. They learn to appreciate dignity of work and cooperation, responsibility contribution and collaboration with co workers and spouses as they become adults. These tasks are as much for boys as for girls. The chores suggested below are a rough guideline of age appropriate jobs for children. Keep in mind that kids are different both developmentally and physically. Some children may be able to do more than others. So here goes:
2-4 year olds: help make bed, put away toys, fetch diapers and plastic bottles, put dirty clothes in bucket, help feed the pets. All tasks would need adult supervision.
4-7 year olds: set the table, help with bed making, watering the plants, feeding pets, start putting on own clothes, bathing, clean up messes, put away toys, put away clothes, carry light bags. Adult supervision would be required as child is learning new skills.
8-10 year olds: water plants, make bed, clean up room, clear the table, do small dishes, do small dusting around the house, cooking basic food like eggs, maggi, milk, keep the garbage out, fold clothes, basic sweeping and swabbing of the floor. Please note that adult supervision would be needed for new tasks.
11 year olds and older children: clean bathroom, clean kitchen, cooking simple to complex dishes, wash dishes, wash clothes, dusting.

If you liked what you read, please share it with others and you can also have a private chat with me if you have any questions about your child.

If you do not exceed the recommended daily allowance there is no problem. Excess vit d can lead to toxicity. Check his blood cbc and tft. Send me reports also do serum vitamin d level if you want.

Hello, This is probably the right time to start weaning and it should be noted that it involves lots of experiment. Make use of this opportunity,feed her high calories homemade porridges,smoothies etc.Dark green vegetables puree can also be a healthier choice.

My baby is almost 1 month now and we noticed now that he is tongue tie. As of now feeding is not a problem though I feel he usually sleep of in the middle of breastfeeding and get up frequently. Is surgery a must and if so can we do now or wait for few more months? Will his speech be affected?

Tongue tie usually does not cause difficulty in feeding. It may cause speech deficit with difficulty in pronouncing certain words which require the tongue to touch the palate like ka, la,Na, etc. Wait till the child starts speaking. If you notice any deficit then get it corrected by surgery.

When child is hungry, he shall definitely like to eat but of his own choice rather yours. It is just possible that you may be forcing your choice. Give him all edible well nutritious items prepared at home of his choice including milk and its products. Sucking of fingers must have started at his early age for the reason he may have not been given food of his choice and kept hungry. I hope this may help.

I have a baby of 2 years. He has often fever and cough. His weight not increasing.

BHMS, pgdcbm, MD(AM)
Homeopath, Gurgaon
I have a baby of 2 years. He has often fever and cough. His weight not increasing.
The baby is not gaining weight due to recurrent fever and cough which is probably also followed by a course of antibiotics. It is important to improve your child's immunity so that he does not fall sick often. Give him a high carbohydrate and high protein rich diet including cereals, Dal, milk ,butter, paneer,ghee, nuts,egg, meat.Fruits and vegetables must be included to improve vitamin levels sp. Vitamin B loss which occurs due to antibiotics. If his appetite is poor, feed him 5-7 times in a day. Make atta/soya/besan halwa or laddoos .Give him stuffed paranthas, parantha rolls stuffed with rajma/ lobhia/ soya cutlets/ paneer/ chicken. You can consult personally for detailed diet plan and homeopathic treatment for improving his general immunity.

I have 7yrs old son and he is suffering with adenoid transcle since 3yrs and he is taking prescribed medicines, now doctor advice is to go for surgery. Is it compulsary for the children. Once our doctor said that these transcles will cure automatically when the boy grows. Doubts ------------- 1) if the surgery is necessary how much it cost 2) after the surgery throat is effected or not 3) does it effect the other child.

Although adenoid regress with age but once adenoids are infected and enlarged enough to cause airway narrowing surgery is only curative treatement.Now a days done with new techniques like microdebrider/coblator with minimal bleeding and pain.

My ward (child) is 13 year old having weight 26 kg only. His growth (both weight & hight) is not not normal as per age. His diet is (one chapati in lunch & dinner) very less & feel uneasy if try to eat more. Please suggest what shold I do? I am very anxious for my ward health.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your child is not very much under weight. Some children eat less and do not put on much weight. In fact obesity is a leading problem in childhood. If we make sure he has no underlying diseases nothing need to be worried. There' s appetite stimulant and he can be given nutritional supplement. More can be personally discussed. If interested you can come to personal chat online. Regards

At one year age. 10 kg is app. Weight ideally. Breast feed tobe given only 2.3 times 8 hrs interval. 4 times you give cereals based soup prepred in milk or curd. That will provide adequate calories and gain in weght. More breast in late night avoided.

After every feed burp the baby for about 20 minutes. When you r awake you can keep baby in side position or on tummy. At night you can burp by lying baby on urself in reclining position for 30 min. If baby is gaining weight then these vomiting are harmless, otherwise see a pediatrician.
