Good evening. Most likely he is having tonsillitis which would require proper course of antibiotics along with warm saline gargles and avoiding cold drinks, ice creams, products like wafers, kurkure, cheese balls etc.

Once you have stopped breast feeding your child then you can consider breast tightening with lift and enhancement and also tummy tuck surgery which will correct the problems and make you feel better.

This is warning signal for severe respiratory tract infection. Get on to a pediatrician. If not available give first dose of augmentin oral suspension. Total per day dose is 40 mg/kg/day. Divide This total dose into three and give at every eight hours.

My baby is now 16 months now, I want to stop breast feeding, how to make her to stop breast feeding as I have tried in many ways but she insist for it before going to sleep.

Your baby is 1 yr 4 months old. Breastfeeding should ideally be continued for at least 2 years to let your baby have the full benefit of breastfeeding. Even after 2 years, one should follow baby led weaning. Your baby sees breastfeeding as a time when you two bond with each other, and it is natural for your baby to resist having his/her special time with you.

Meet a pediatrician at your location to find cause of fever and get irrelevant investigations done. 5 days fever needs a blood investigation for confirming the source of infection.

No injection is painless. So called painless injection, TDaP has low immunity (though to desirable level), less lasting and costly in comparison to TDwP.
