Hi I have 2 months old baby. And last night we have done unprotected sex. I don't want to be pregnant again. What should I do? if I use any pills, won't it harmful my 2 months old baby who is feeding my milk? please help.
My baby hardly takes food. She keeps on crying whenever the food is brought near her. At present she is on solids like cerelac and dia mix. She also has hard stools. She drinks a lot of water. As new parents we are worried.
Are you concerned about your child’s overeating? Overeating may seem like a harmless act in the beginning, but it is in this that the root of childhood obesity lies. The germ that overeating, seeds in your child’s life, will affect him/her throughout their life. It is certainly a point of concern for anyone and to keep your child healthy and active, you must take precautionary measures from beforehand.
There are some, tips that you may find helpful to rein in the overeating behavior of your child. These tips are very simple and psychology based, they motivate your child to not overstuff their stomach.
- Make your child enjoy and love the food they are eating. Show them how much you are “enjoying” the food rather than just “eating” it. It should be like a celebration.
- Teach your children how to understand the difference between being full and overeating. Tell them to listen to their stomach and feel their stomach being full of the food; and consequently stop there, rather than going on eating. Your stomach sends a signal when it is on the threshold of being full and overfull. Your child needs to understand that signal and stop eating.
- Try to avoid power struggles both in the case of forcing them to eat or forcing them not to eat. If your child does not want to eat the food, don’t force-feed them. That creates a lasting impression and your child develops an aversion to food items. Rather, leave the food on the table and let your child know that they have access to the food and they can eat whenever they feel like it. Ultimately a hungry stomach will give in and he/she will return to the table. If your child wants to eat more someday, then he/she wants it because they are hungry that particular day, not because they are overeating. Plan some kind of activity after dinner or lunch, such as washing the plates, cleaning the kitchen, so that the food gets digested easily and quickly.
- Some foods act as a trigger for overeating. Savory items such as chips, cheese balls, pizzas, etc. and sweet items such as chocolates, ice creams, cookies, candies, etc. fall in this category. These are palatable and are attractive to the kids. It is hard to stop consuming them and in certain cases becomes addictive. You need to teach your child the harm that these foods are causing to their health. Teach them with the help of pictures and videos the effects of diabetes, obesity and other such diseases on the human body.
Your child needs to love the food that they are eating and it is there that they will form a healthy relationship with food. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disorder that is known to affect some of the vital organs of the body including the lungs, digestive system to name a few. For long it was believed that cystic fibrosis affects a person in their childhood. However, various research and studies suggest that adults are also susceptible to this inheritable disorder. In this article, we will discuss the cause and symptoms associated with cystic fibrosis.
The epithelial cells that line the stomach, nasal cavity and lungs, are responsible for the production of the digestive fluids, sweat, tears, mucus. The Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR) gene codes for a protein called the CFTR protein. The CFTR protein, a membrane protein plays a pivotal role in transporting the chloride ions of the epithelial cells inside and out of the cell. This regulation of the chloride ions goes a long way in ensuring that the mucus produced is free-flowing and thin.
In the case of Cystic Fibrosis, the CFTR gene that codes for the protein undergoes a mutation. With the CFTR protein unable to perform its function, sticky and thick mucus builds up and clogs some of the major systems of the body including the digestive system, reproductive, and respiratory system. There is also a higher salt content in the sweat of the affected person.
For a person to be affected by cystic fibrosis, he/she must inherit a copy of the mutated CFTR gene from both the parents ( Autosomal Recessive Disorder) at birth.
The symptoms associated with cystic fibrosis depends on the organs and systems affected.
- The thick mucus formed can clog the digestive tract resulting in incomplete absorption of the essential nutrients from the food. This may have an impact on the overall growth and development of the body.
- - There may be stunted growth or no weight gain.
- - The stool may appear greasy and foul smelling. Some may also suffer from constipation.
- - Newborns and infants may suffer from an intestinal blockage.
- Cystic fibrosis, left unattended can lead to diabetes, intestinal blockage or obstruction.
- - The mucus can also block the bile duct triggering a host of problems including liver disorders.
- - At times, the obstruction or blockage can occur at the junction where the large and the small intestine meets (Distal intestinal obstruction syndrome).
- The thick mucus can also affect the lungs and the respiratory system by blocking the tubes that act as a passage carrying the air inside and out of the lungs. As a result,
Left untreated the complications can worsen resulting in
In severe cases, there may be a respiratory failure.
Cystic fibrosis can also trigger fertility problems (both in males and females).
