Vomiting is an association for most sick children during fever. As today is the first day of fever do not panic. Temp is mild. Give plenty of fluids and ors during vomiting give cold sips not hot liquid to controle vomiting watch the baby's urination pattern if normal or different from before for possible urinary infection and contact Dr. Later as of now give fluids keep cool with low external temprature. You may help with emiset drops. 12 drops thrice daily before food for next 2 days. Thanks.

Weight usually triples by 1year. Accordingly it's normal. You can give any thing other than cow's milk and egg as they may cause allergy in some children.

G6PD deficiency is an inherited condition in which the body doesn't have enough of the enzyme glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, or G6PD, which helps red blood cells (RBCs) function normally. This deficiency can cause hemolytic anemia, usually after exposure to certain medications, foods, or even infections. A normal—or no G6PDD—result for adults is 5.5 to 20.5 units/gram of hemoglobin. Less than 10% of normal means that you have severe deficiency and chronic hemolytic anemia.

If it has gone down to stomach, it will come out through anus next 1-3 days. Watch the stools. If it does not or the child have some distress, then take him to your doctor.

A 11 month old baby should be eating virtually everything which is being cooked at home such as dhal, sabji (vegetables), rice, etc. Cerelac and farex can be good weaning food but are not the ideal ones.

As weight gain for your baby in one month is good while on breast feed only, there does not appear any need to switch to formula feed. Breast feed is best for babies, specially so for pre-term babies as breast milk of mothers of such babies modified to meet special needs of these babies. Pl do not switch to formula, consult your pediatrician regularly to monitor growth & development of your babies; as well as to allay fear of inadequate breast milk.

My daughter has 15months baby, she is suffering from too cold and cough. Which medicine is suitable for this?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Describe more. He may need antibiotics and tests. You can ask privately in the site. Now you give wikoryl syrup 5 ml twice and otrivin nasal drops and if fever is there calpol syrup 1`25 ( to give medicine it is necessary to know his weight, your question is not sufficient and I assume he has reasonably normal weight. When you ask, give all details.

If your child is allergic to some food item or dust you need to take care and avoid these which might be reason for her cold and cough. You can start her with sitophaladi churna, mix a pinch of powder in one teaspoonfull of honey and give daily at bed time.

On 22nd July my son (4 years old) had 101 fevers at night. I consulted homeopathic doctor (with whom I have consulted earlier and found effective in my son’s treatment of cold & cough). While the temperature reduced, my son started coughing. Homeopathic doctor gave him medicines for cough that I continued administering my son for next 2 days. However, I noticed that the cough increased, even though I also kept doing some home made things (like ginger honey paste, tulsi extract) to help reduce the cough fast. Since the cough increased in next 2 days, I assumed the homeopathic medicine is not effective in curing cough though it cured the fever .I therefore, started giving S-mucolite 3 times 3.5 ml (this was prescribed by our allopathic doctor 5 months back when he had chest cold). As expected, I could see significant improvement in frequency and sound of his cough with each passing day. In next 4 days my son’s coughing reduced to bare minimum though he is still coughing with a heavy cough sound and still has minor cold. I wanted to know whether I should continue only with S –mucolite for 3 more days (full course is of 7 days as last prescribed by the doctor during same type of cough). Should I also add a decongestant like Alex junior as prescribed earlier for regular cough? Or with passage of time the cough will subside and there is no need to start any other medicine. Please provide your suggestions?

Pls continue s. Mucolyte. And beware it is not safe to change or alter or add medication by you. It's registered medical practising doctor shall do so that too after seeing the child. Follow up is must after 3-5 days for such issues.

My baby girl cries so often for past few days and is having poor feeding. She is teething fast. please advice.
Reason of cry appears to be hunger. Give her frequent feed. If you feel cry is due to teething, apply oracep or zytee gum paint. Else you may consult pediatrician.

If he is not bottle fed it is common for 3 month old child to poop often and for crying colic aid will help .If on bottle feed stop bottle and give only breast milk
