A baby can br massaged lightly after about two weeks of birth. Homemade butter or ghee can be used for massage, also coconut oil. But make not to smear too much oil and to massage with light hands.

I have one child. He is 5 years old. My sister also has a baby. After watching my sister breastfeeding her baby, my son also wants breastfeeding milk from me. Please suggest how can I breastfeed my son.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You have to clearly and lovingly explain to your child he is big and breast milk is for small babies. And there is no way you can produce milk as god has decided so. Encourage him to eat like you people as an adult (to boost his ego !)

Hello My 4 month old baby boy is breastfeed and bottle fed too. He is putting on good weight. Bt he passes green color stool. Do I need to worry?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
We always advise against bottle feeding as it is inherent with many problems. Only breast feed & homemade semi solids are the ideal food for a 4 month old baby. If you stop bottle the stool should become normal. I can give you constant support and advice if you give all details like birth weight and immunisation details, better to ask privately.

6 kg at 11 months of age is very low weight. You should consult a pediatrician and do necessary investigations for not gaining weight. Give high calorie diet like ghee, butter, cheese, banana, pulses etc.

My 8 year old son is not gaining weight. His diet is also very limited. Please advise / suggest

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
70-80% parents complain that their child does not eat, still then children grow and some of them even go on diet plans to reduce weight. So this is human nature, we all feel the same. But it has to be substantiated by objective tactics. What is weight of your son. If it is in normal range for his age then nothing needs to be done. If not then look if there is familial thin frame. Very small percentage of children need detail work up.

Hello doctors, please tell me can I give after noon cooked rice by 7: 00 pm to my 9 months baby?

DHMS (Hons.)

Hello doctors, please tell me can I give after noon cooked rice by 7: 00 pm to my 9 months baby?
Hello Lybrate user. It should be cooked immediately to eat. If it is cooked late will carry high rate of fermentation causing gastric disorder with cold effect, moreover, you may give rice in the evening, provided your child is not susceptible to catch cold, frquently and she is not troubled much with gastric disorder. It, should be in all respect fresh -cooked & slightly warm before to consume. Tk care.

My son is 1 year old and his teeth started growing from the 5th month itself, now he has 8 tooth (4 on top and 4 on below) and the 4 on top started decaying its is become very difficult to breast feed him as his tooth stated hurting the mother. What should I do?

8 teeth are normal at this age. Decay can occur due to bottle feeding. If so you must stop it. Show to a pedodontist for early intervention.

My 4 years old daughter has a very weak appetite. She is 12 kg, What is the best tonic to increase her appetite.

MD - Homeopathy
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Low appetite has many reasons, it could be low haemoglobin levels, first find out that. Try and make food interesting for her by giving her variety of food. Tonics are going to give only temporary relief. So do not start any tonic. Give her chapatis in form of chapati noodles you can google and learn some good nutritious recepies.

Answer to your both queries is that wt 8 kg of your baby at this age is normal. U started weaning at right age of 6 months and by now you have rightly started veg soup and khichadi. Have variety of items for change and developing taste, cooked at home, like suji kheer/ halwa, dal, mashed vegetables, fruits etc once or twice in a day with no binding of time any item in morning and other in evening. Continue breast feeding and complementary dairy milk. Any specific food chart is usually not effective since at time baby may not like same food at same time. I always prefer variation of item and time. Appropriate quantity of food is to increase wt. No root vegetable or any other veg causes cold.

If your baby is having blood in stools needs to be seen by a pediatrician. The stool has to be tested for routine examination and cultured. Till then prevent dehydration by giving ORS, Probiotic and Zinc orally. Mothers feed should be given frequently.

Missing Teeth and Problems Associated With It

Missing Teeth and Problems Associated With It

A loss of tooth or teeth is one of the biggest dental problems that someone can face. The irony is that people consider loss of teeth to be very insignificant. But in reality loss of teeth can lead to not only cosmetic problems, but also functional problems and an unstable chewing mechanism.

Loss of teeth can lead to many problems. Some of them are:

  1. Supra eruption of opposing teeth
  2. Compromised efficiency of chewing
  3. Adjacent teeth might drift into the space created by missing teeth
  4. Food tend to accumulate between teeth, which have moved
  5. Food accumulation also leads to periodontal disease and caries
  6. A lopsided chewing pattern as there is loss of equilibrium in the mechanism of chewing
  7. The extracted area might reveal a loss of bone height
  8. Problems of the temporomandibular joints, like closed bite and TMJ osteoarthritis
  9. The existing functional teeth might lead to problems due to overload
  10. There are increased chances of cheek biting due to collapse of the cheek in the missing space, thus leading to functional and cosmetic problems
  11. The frequency of tongue biting and ulceration might increase in the area of missing teeth or tooth

When missing teeth are replaced, one can easily restore the healthy look of the teeth and also prevent any other dental problems which are due to the missing teeth.

While replacement of the missing teeth it is of utmost importance that the equilibrium is maintained with the distribution of the forces caused by chewing. Care is also taken that the cosmetic outlook is also maintained in the treatment.  

Ideally the teeth when extracted or lost should be immediately replaced. This is because the replacement prevents the bone resorption or bone loss in the area and also retains the good bone. But a drawback is that such an immediate replacement might lead to limitation. Immediate treatment is usually done with the help of implants which easily fit in the sockets created by extraction. But even for this an analysis of the bone and gum health is necessary, thus leading to only a few instances for such replacements. Other alternative is that immediate removable dentures can be prepared and these can be replaced once the gums of the area have healed. The time period for this is usually 3 months. If these need to be fixed permanently then a waiting period of 3 months is mandatory for the settling and healing of the gums and bone of the area.

The 3 basic ways of fixing missing teeth are through implants, fixed bridgework (bridges and crowns) and dentures, which can be removed.

Junk foods are unhealthy and may lead to various health problems. Food habits depend on how we cultivate. Slowly you must divert towards other foods with love and affection.
