Instill saline nasal drops in each nostrils 3-4 times in a day. Clean eyes and use antibiotic eye drops every 2-3 hours in both eyes and eye ointment at bed time. Since baby is 1 month old and are prone to become serious in a short time, it is advisable to consult pediatrician.

Merits of extended breast feeding

Breastfeeding up to two years of age or beyond is based on the fact that breast milk is a [key organic source of DHA (Omega fatty acids), vitamin A, calcium and proteins and provides protection against infectious agents][1].

In 2008 the American Academy of Family Physicians said this in their [position paper][2]:


> It has been estimated that a natural weaning age for humans is between
> two and seven years. Family physicians should be knowledgeable
> regarding the ongoing benefits to the child of extended breastfeeding,
> including continued immune protection, better social adjustment and
> having a sustainable food source in times of emergency. The longer
> women breastfeed, the greater the decrease in their risk of breast
> cancer. There is no evidence that extended breastfeeding is harmful to
> mother or child.


[Many scientific studies prove][3] the point that longer breastfeeding [enhances the
neurodevelopment of infants][4] and their intellectual and scholastic ability in later life. **from one of these studies increase in the IQ by breastfeeding is directly related to the duration of breastfeeding**. These benefits are strongest for the infants of low birth weight on breastmilk feeding. It is found that Poor who are more likely to
enter into child malnutrition are more likely to benefit from enhanced optimal breastfeeding
practices.

longer breastfeeding promotes suppression of [following Diseases and benefits to the infant][5] :

- Enhanced stereoscopic vision
- Neuromotor development
- Lower chances of obesity in Adult life
- [Increase in height][6]
- suppression of gastrointestinal and respiratory infectious morbidity
- suppression of atopic eczema
- suppression of asthma

[Benefits for the Mother][7]:

- [Weight loss][8]
- lower chances of breast cancer
- lower chances of premenopausal ovarian cancer
- suppression of hypertension
- suppression of type 2 diabetes
- suppression of myocardial infarction (heart attack).

**WHO recommends that breastfeeding should continue for two years or more without accurately establishing a maximum duration for breastfeeding.In addition, there is insufficient evidence on the advantages and disadvantages of continuing breastfeeding after two years.**


[It is unfortunate that about many mothers are unable to breast feed even upto 1 year][9]. This may be because We’ve sexualized the breast so much that people have forgotten breasts are for breast-feeding. There is A [Harvard Study which looks at both health AND cost outcomes for U.S. mothers][10] if they were to breastfeed for 1 year.The study found that if 90% of mothers breastfed, U.S. women would significantly lower their risk of heart attack, breast cancer, and hypertension. On a macro level, further investment in lactation support for moms could prevent $17.4 billion in maternal health costs.

Many mothers have shared [positive Experiences of extended breastfeeding in this article][11]

2 years 3 months is too young to diagnose hyperactivity disorder. There is a broad range of behaviour that can be considered normal at this age. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is diagnosed after the age of 7 years with detailed assessment in 2 different settings.

Growth of your child is normal so do not force food. You should develope healthy eating habits for normal growth. Forcing foods will result in behaviour disorders.

In newborn babies blood glucose levels should be above 40. To monitor the blood glucose levels repeatedly (2nd hourly) and to maintain levels above 40 by giving iv or oral glucose liquids they shifted to icu to be on the safer side even though baby is fine.

My son 10 years old undergoing brittle nail syndrome. Require some good biotin supplement with other vitamin and mineral supplements. Kindly suggest.

The chance of developing a vitamin B deficiency increases as you age, and it can lead to dry, brittle nails. Biotin helps the rest of the B-complex of vitamins work together to maintain strong, shiny fingernails.
