This question is for my 3.5 years old baby girl having squint in both eyes, Doctor applied glasses accordingly and suggests surgery then after diagnose of 1.5 years, as my baby girl is just 3.5 years old as a parent I do not want her to operate at this age, can we wait? And if yes then how many years we can wait. 2nd) is this a minor surgery like laser or sesame. 3rd) after this surgery can we think for lasik laser at the age of 16, 4th) if surgery is necessity now, then its surety that squint will never appear in future.

If squint disappear with glasses, not to worry. If eyes remail sqinting, must go for surgery to avoid permanent one eye vision week. It is not an eye operation and nothing to do with vision loss in surgery. It is an external surgery and quite safe. You must get op. At the age 5 to 6.If done late ,vision will be less in one eye for ever.

Tea or coffee taken with food or after food causes disturbance with absorption of certain nutrients also it disturbs the digestion. Also coffee taken at night disturbs sleep pattern. So please avoid it.

He has completed 9 months but his weight is not increasing from 5th month. His weight is still 8 kg as he was in 5th month. I am giving him diet of meshed cereals, cerelac, and some vegetables (5 meals a day ). Also to mention that he does not like mother's milk, every time he refuses that within a minute or two. Please suggest.

Don't compare his wt with 5 month's wt. Now his expected wt should be about 9 kg. 8 kg is slightly at lower side. As the child grows, his wt doesn't increase with the same pace as at younger age. I am not seeing any place of milk or its product in his 5 meals. Give him ideally 2 meals but not more than 3 meals in a day consisting of varieties like ghee added haluwa, rice/ sujee kheer, khichadi, dal-roti very small pieces, vegetables well cooked in ghee/ oil, fruits etc of his taste and to develop taste. 3-4 times sweetened milk and rest breast milk 3-4 times. Probably he may be refusing mother's milk because she may be trying to feed her own milk most of time. If it is so I hope with above regime he shall like mother's feed and start gaining wt.

Can I give brain iq syrup to my 8 month old baby suffering from leukodystrophy and in how much quantity.

Can I give brain iq syrup to my 8 month old baby suffering from leukodystrophy and in how much quantity.
Infants digestive system at this time is very sensitive. Few medications may cause indigestiion, flatulence problem. Instead I suggest you to consume everyday, a fist of groundnuts or walnuts (which are rich in DHA. The more nutritionally fit you are the more you can transfer essential nutrients to your baby, through your breastmilk. You can start giving 1 table spoon of mashed rice, mashed potato, clear dal water to your baby along with breast milk. Add a 5 ml of ghee to mashed rice, mashed potato. Ghee is very good for brain development.

Admission depends upon sign and symptoms like if baby is suffering from high grade fever which is not reducing even after oral medication or has dehydration or swelling in any body part. Its better to admit him in hospital for continous monitoring and also it purely depends upon the treating doctor decision.

Most likely your daughter has allergic cough or frequent recurrent viral respiratory infections. I hope your daughter is not still bottle feeding, esp. At bedtime as this could be the reason for frequent cough. Cakes biscuits chips and chocolates are generally very high sugary foods and not recommended for daily consumption.

If your child is allergic to some food item or dust you need to take care and avoid these which might be reason for her cold and cough. You can start her with sitophaladi churna, mix a pinch of powder in one teaspoonfull of honey and give daily at bed time.

Hi lybrate-user, babies skin are very sensitive. But no matter how well you are getting time for yourself, you will always put your baby first. Even when you are thinking of ways to get a fairer and glowing skin, you will want to look for ways to get your baby’s skin fairer and softer! Here are a few home remedies for you: 1. Nice & Warm Oil Massage - You must have been told by your mother or grandmother a hundred times that massaging your newborn with a hot oil is good for his bones and muscles to get them stronger. But what they didn’t tell you is that the hot oil massage also improves the complexion of your baby. It adds another protective layer of moisture on their skin and this results in mild pinkish glow and blossom. 2. Using An Optimum Water Temperature For Bathing - As much as it essential for the adults to take care of the water temperature they are bathing with, it is even more important that you keep an optimum water temperature for your baby’s bath. Otherwise, too hot or cold water will dry out your young one’s sensitive skin and make it appear dull and dark. 3. Soft Baby Scrub - Don’t worry, we won’t ask you to use your everyday scrub on your delicate baby. Instead, you can prepare a baby scrub using baby oil, chickpea flour, milk, rose water, and an evenly grounded gram pulse. Gently scrub away the impurities and this will also improve the blood circulation in your baby’s body, that will lead to a fairer complexion ultimately. 4. Mild Baby Friendly Body Pack - Your young one’s body is totally new to the environmental factors, with more sensitive skin than any adult. Fostering the little one’s skin with a mild body pack will nurture their skin and give them an evenly fair skin tone. Mix sandalwood, milk, saffron and turmeric to make a smooth paste and apply it on your baby’s body. Leave it on for 10 minutes and wash off with lukewarm water. This will not only make him fairer but will also protect him from various skin infections. Do this once in a week. 5. Complete Moisturization - The most important and essential step in the baby skin care routine is the moisturization. You can apply a good and mild baby skin-friendly moisturizer once a day. 6. Give A Regulated Sunbath - We understand that protecting your little one from the harsh rays of the sun is essential, but some natural vitamin D is necessary for the skin to stay bright and healthy as well. Use a pram or shed to protect your baby from the impact of direct sunlight. 7. Fresh Fruit Juices - Fruit juices are a great option for babies above 3 months. Feeding your baby a fresh juice of grapes will help increase the sheen of the epidermis and fruits like oranges & apples will improve your baby’s overall health. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Get your self checked by obstetrician to ascertain cause of Ganth. Aise aapako sahee pata chal jayega aur uchit upchar ho jayga. Bachche ko dusare boob se dudh pilate rahe aur yadi dard sahan karane layak hai to ganth walee boob se bhee dudh playe. Doctor ko avashay dikhale.
