If you bottle feed stop bottle and give breast and other feeds from a cup. Avoiding bottle. If he is breastfed alone the loose motion is harmless and children often pass more times normally.

Sir, my daughter aged 5, taking Dr. Mercola multivitamin for children, which contains 2000 iu of vitamin d3, is it safe for my daughter, as she is india, Dr. Mercola says it is safe, please guide me. Thanks.

MRCPCH, MBBS
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
Hello, it is good to give vitamin d3 but this dose is on higher side. We need 400 iu per day so allow a vit d3 half sachet once a month only and other multivitamins are fine if you want though I would not recommend that if appetite covers all natural sources of vitamins. However, if you want you continue you can but please take care of d3 vitamin dosage. Take care.

You have to reduce quantity of cerelac and add cereals in her food. There is not any medicine for that.

You need this introduce one food at a time. Too many foods are very confusing for a year plus child. Handy foods like carrot sticks, cucumber sticks, murmura, namkeens, or banana are much easier for a child to handle.

Both the medicines are syrups not drops, check the medicines while buying. If your baby develops difficulty in breathing / difficulty in taking feeds / fever, then consult nearby child specialist.

Most of the watery stools are due to viruses and they take few days to resolve. Ensure proper oral intake and hydration. Continue zinc for 14 days and enterogermina. Warm regards.

What method i have to follow for he will taken solid food. Which type of food have to follow. Please suggest.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Faridabad
If his weight at two and half years is 10 kg and height 94cm then he is thin but long. But only on milk now is not good. Stop bottle and milk all together. Give him soft food to eat or else let him be hungry and nothing in between. You may give him milk based food example kheer,curd,burfi. Basic principal has already been elaboratated earlier. He must be iron deficient, please him some iron supplement example sup hemsi 5ml once a day for hundred days.
