Which milk supplement is good for kids? Junior horlicks/lil champs/pediasure/horlicks growth plus or any others.

Which milk supplement is good for kids? Junior horlicks/lil champs/pediasure/horlicks growth plus or any others.
As such if a child is having normal indian food then there is no need of a supplement at all but if child is not eating properly then first approach should be towards proper eating habits and not just to give supplements bcz no supplement can give you proper nutrition still if you want to give then they all have different nutritive value and you can give them alternatively.

Dear user. ABORTIONS can be performed as early as an intra-uterine pregnancy can be identified by ultrasound, which is usually about 3-4 weeks after your Last Menstrual Period (LMP). In the first trimester, two options are available: Aspiration is done by a physician in the clinic or the Abortion Pill which you take at home. Do not take any decisions before consulting your gynecologist. Take care.

If the nipple does not latch on to the baby's mouth the nipple may be retracted and sipple shield can be kept and feed the baby. Milk will form in due course and lactare capsules help increase milk.

My daughter is 6 years old, she suffered from saline infection after her premature birth in right arm. We already operated plastic surgery two times in pgi chandigarh but still growth of the arm is not as left arm and scar is wide please suggest us what to do ?

Please ask your doctors in pgi why growth of that limb is less. Probably the infection has damaged the growth center of the limb bones. But don't worry once she grows older limb lengthening procedures and scar reduction procedures can be done. At present let her enjoy her child hood.

Weight gain is best parameter. If baby is on exclussive breast feed and passing urine 6 to 7 times in a day is also an indicator.

Dear user, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. But for children, this attention span comes down to 2 to 3 minutes. Special methods are needed to engage their attention. Also needs to understand whether your child has any attention deficit problems. I suggest you provide more information. Take care.

Sir/Madam I have a baby girl of 03 Months.
Is it okay to use Woodward Gripe water.
Dear Mr. lybrate-user, Ideally your baby is of 3 months old. She has to be exclusively breastfed for 6 months. After 6 month you can start giving her soft diet and water. If there is any stomach or gastric disorder then it is advisable to consult your treating pediatrician and follow his advice.
