If you give mother milk only and keep a gap of about 2 hours he should improve. Too much feeding and bottle feeding may be responsible.

I am a mother of 2 years daughter. My daughter still take breastfeed. Can you please suggest me is there any harm in that or is it will effect my or my child's body. And how to stop this. Is their is any medicine by which my daughter stops breastfeed?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
It's nice that you are still feeding your child at 2 years of age. Recommendation is to feed the child at least till the age of 2 years because such children are going become clever children. As a mother you are benefited a lot by breastfeeding your child. Most importantly it helps to maintain your weight. Let your child stop feeding naturally.

My daughter age is 7 years. Since one month, pus is discharging from her left ear with bad smell. Already consulted an E.N.T. Specialist. He suggested to use candid ear dropsfor 10 days. But invain.

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Aurangabad
Hello, Probably your daughter is having a fungal infection of the outer ear . If she is not responding to Candid ear drops , then she may require an examination of ear under microscope ( called otomicroscopy ) and suction clearance. This will help in faster healing as well as a confirmed diagnosis / to rule out any other ear pathology.

My daughter is 3 & half Months old. She is a healthy child but she has motions cleared at an interval of 2-3 days. This has been going on from a month now. Is this normal or she needs some medicine for regular motions. She feeds on mother's milk and urinates quite frequently whole day. Also please tell me if she needs calcium or any other supplement to support her good growth as she is already 7.750 kg by weight.

Some babies do have irregular motions. If the stools are very hard and if the baby struggles to pass stools then you must show to a pediatric surgeon. 7.75 kgs at 3 and half months is quiet high. Don't give any thing other than breast milk. Calcium is not a must but you can give vitamin d drops1 ml (400mg) daily as it's less in breast milk.

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]

Cough in small babies is commonly to to picking up an infection from family members, or due to regurgitation of milk. Most often clearing the nostrils using saline drops and steam inhalation using a vaporizer or humidifier in a closed room gives relief.
