I have two preterm daughters advice the age till which they will need exclusive breast feeding.Please tell.

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician, Seoni
Hi if you ask exclusive breast milk then it is 6 months after you should start weaning. You have to gradually discourage breast milk because after 6 months water content is increase in breast milk nd baby did not get adequate calories. Up to 2 years we can cont. Breast feed but frequency should be less.

If baby is getting fever 6-8 hourly, responding to paracetamol, in between fever active, passing normal urine (as it was before illness) and not dull then it may be viral. Any thing else need investigations on day 4.

Fever is a symptom not disease. Fever for more than week require proper examination and investigation. With wbc count, its differential count is equally important. Get his urine r/e too. It is nice that pediatrician is looking after your baby.

Usually children on breast feeds are not constipated as such. They may not pass stool every day. If the child cries a lot while passing stool, he may be having a local fissure which needs to be checked out by pediatrician. I am not sure Bonnisan would help, but if the excessive cry is due to constipation and hard stool, please show the baby to a Pediatrician.

Don't scold or make conscious child for this act. If urine routine examination is normal, get him urinated before retiring at about 10 pm. try this for about a month. If this does not work, consult doctor.

Hi lybrate-user, Vaccines usually cause fever for 24 to 48 hours after administration of Vaccine. If the fever is persisting beyond this period or associated with other symptoms like cold, cough, throat pain, loose stools, then we can think other reasons such as Viral infections. Hope I have answered your query. Regards,

10 Foods for Healthy Teeth

10 Foods for Healthy Teeth

Dental care is of utmost importance. Poor dental health can cause you several problems, from a mild toothache to severe pain. Here are 10 foods which will help you maintain your healthy teeth. Read on to find out more about it:

  1. Cheese: Cheese, particularly aged cheese like Cheddar, Swiss and such are beneficial for your teeth. They increase the pH scale in your mouth and effectively prevent tooth decay. It also consists of protein and calcium, nutrients required for strengthening your tooth enamel.
  2. Yogurt: Like cheese, yogurt also contains calcium and protein for tooth enamel. Probiotics or the beneficial bacteria present in yogurt are good for the gums as well.
  3. Leafy Vegetables:  Spinach and kale promote oral health. They contain calcium, which is good for your tooth enamel. They contain folic acid, a B vitamin which has a lot of health benefits and also helps to prevent gum disease.
  4. Apples: Apples contain high fiber and water, which are beneficial for your teeth. While eating an apple, a lot of saliva is produced which washes away the bacteria present in the mouth.
  5. Carrots: Carrots are also crunchy like apples and also contain high fiber which is beneficial for teeth. They also contain vitamin A which is also highly beneficial.
  6. Celery: Celery contains vitamins A and C which are very beneficial for the gums. They are also crunchy and hence help scraping away bacteria and food particles from your teeth.
  7. Almonds: Almonds are a great choice as they are low on sugar and have high content of calcium and protein.
  8. Strawberries: Strawberries are very beneficial for your teeth. Strawberries consist of vitamin C, different antioxidants and malic acid, which help in naturally whitening your teeth.
  9. Garlic: Garlic contains a substance called 'Allicin' which has strong anti-mycobacterial properties, and is thus beneficial for your teeth. It helps to prevent periodontal disease and fight tooth decay.
  10. Meat: Meat in general is beneficial for maintaining healthy teeth. Meats consist of a lot of protein, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients which are important for healthier teeth.

Born weight was 3.2 kg
now she is 37 days baby and her weight is 3.75
please let me know how to increase baby weight.
Breastfeeding is the only solution for weight gain. Poor weight gain of your baby must be due to faulty feeding. You must give detailed feeding history.

My nephew is one and a half month old and we recently discovered that he has two small 2 mm holes in his heart. He gets really tired while drinking milk and has not gained much weight which a normal baby should in one and a half month. Our family doctor said these might not need surgery as they are very small and should close on its own. Kindly help.
