For repeated cold, do not use any antibiotic. To increase immunity, give vitamin a 60, 000 units daily for 3 to 4 days. Give him food of his taste, if he refuses one item, try another, not all at a time. Don't force feed.

My baby is 21 months old boy. I just want to know that is it necessary to clean his teeth with brush everyday. We tried many times but he just play with brush and does not clean his teeth with brush. So how to train him for brushing.

A. Teaching your toddler to take care of his teeth is just one way you can show your growing child how to take responsibility for his body. This can be a challenge because 2-year-olds are motivated mainly by fun and pleasure, not by health and necessity. If you want to end his resistance to brush, your best bet is to make this nightly chore a fun ritual for him. Here are a few tricks you can use to do just that: play copycat. Capitalize on a toddler's natural desire to mimic fun activities he sees. Bring your child into the bathroom with you to watch you brush your teeth. Be sure to lay out his toothbrush where he can reach it. While you're brushing, exaggerate a show of excitement. He'll likely be encouraged to copy what you're doing. Make the toothbrush a toy. Let him play with it. For example, show him how to brush his teddy bear's" teeth, or even let him brush yours. Create the impression that toothbrushes are fun to use. Play show and tell. While you are showing your child how to" play" with the toothbrush, tell him why tooth brushing is important. Say" sticky stuff collects on your teeth. The sugar bugs like the sticky stuff, and if they stay there long enough, they'll eat into your teeth, and then your teeth won't be strong and white. If you have a cavity that's filled, show it to him to reinforce this point. Use your finger as a toothbrush. If he still doesn't seem enthralled by his toothbrush, wrap a piece of gauze around your finger (you can actually purchase slip-on gauze pieces for this purpose) and use your finger to clean his teeth. Some toddlers find this less frightening than a long, plastic toothbrush. If you use toothpaste, choose one that has a flavor he likes. A word of caution: if you choose a toothpaste with fluoride, as most dentists recommend, use only a pea-size dab no more than once a day. Many children this age will swallow toothpaste. As a preventative medicine, the mineral fluoride has a narrow risk/benefit ratio: just the right amount of fluoride (via brushing) can help protect against tooth decay, but too much (via digestion) can contribute to weakened enamel. When nothing else will work: try the two-person technique we resorted to in our family to successfully brush the teeth of our resistant toddler. Have your child lie on your lap with his head facing you, while your partner sits in front of you knee-to-knee, supporting your child's body in his lap. Have your partner lean forward and hold your child's arms and legs while you gently brush his teeth from above (a position that will give you easier access and a better view). Your child will eventually catch on that brushing his teeth is a regular and necessary part of taking care of his whole body - and he'll enjoy doing it.

You must find out cause for delayed dentition. If all other milestones are normal you can try calcium and vitamin d preparation.

If he is given bottle feed also it can cause nipple and breast confusion and stop bottle and give breast milk only . Refusal to feed can also be a sign of infection and need to see if he has other symptoms also

I understand your anxiety about your new born baby. The new born can have normal shivering movements at the chin provided these are momentary. How you have assessed that child is not getting enough milk? 2 reliable signs of enough milk are 1birth wt is regained at 15 days of age. Wt should increase at least 500grams in a month. 2.should pass diluted urine at least 6 times in 24 hours. It is not a symptom of jaundice &u may be reassured. Regards.

Hello, lybrate-user! this is a concern for all new mothers. If your baby is hungry every 2-3 hours, gaining adequate weight, passing urine atleast 5-6 times a day &motions atleast once a day, that means your milk is adequate remember that, milk flows when baby starts sucking at breast.

Lybrate-user, its easy, you have to stop the diet that cause weight loss or reduce appetite. Milk, vegetables, soups, fruits help in losing weight. Cereals rice, ghee, oils help in gaining weight. Also keep a watch on constipation.

We consider a good weight gain if weight is double the birth weight at 5 months, triple at 1 year and 4 times at 2 yrs of age. At his age, you should give 2 milk feeds and 4 solid meals, stop breast feeds.

My baby is 22 days old on his 21st day we had a naming ceremony in which I was served with normal diet which everyone is eating not special diet for new mother since then my baby is passing stool several times and it is smelling foul, but he is taking feeding normally and passing stool every time he is fed what is the reason is it there any problem.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
There's no special diet for a new mother. You must eat normal food with extra calories as you are feeding. If you're exclusively breastfeeding, your baby cannot get diarrhoea. Some babies do have frequent semisolid stools as soon as fed due to exaggerated gastrocolic reflex. You must continue breastfeeding.

The root cause of constipation is mostly a lifestyle habits, lot of refine flour, physical inactivity. So first we have to identify the cause. We can help you out if you can share your more details to us. For that to begin, you need to start taking three to four litters of fluid daily. High roughage diet, stopping refine flour in the diet, and moderate physical activity. You start with this you will see relief to a great extent. In case after this effects also if you don't get relief you can start homoeopathic. Please note make a fix time for toilet in a day.
