They are hyperactive. Try to involve them in games. Let them apply energy in some kind of games. Divert them in the beginning. Check them for spitting.

This could be normal. But there is also the possibility that this is some type of minor nervous or seizure disorder. You surely need to take her to the doctor and get her examined. If you could capture what you are saying on your phone in the video mode and take it with you when you meet the doctor, it will be easy for him to know what is happening and he could easily come to a diagnosis. Don't ignore this. May be nothing but should be checked out.

High fever is usually due to viral infection. It takes 3 to 4 days to settle down. Give paracetamol suspension 15mg per kg whenever there is fever which can be repeated once in 4 to 6 hours.

Good evening mam, that sounds really good that she is playing all the time and avoid milk. It shows that your baby is developing understanding and she is knowing that there is much fun in play rather than feed. If she is on your feed try to give her your deed for one more month after that as such you will add new and complimentary feed that will be new thi for her she is take interest in feeding new things. I hope she is double of her birthweight? nothing much to worry in this case.

My baby is getting diaper rash very frequently. We are not using any diapers due to this, but still getting rash. We apply vaseline and zinc oxide cream regularly. When the rash gets worse we apply Eumosone-M which helps to get rid of the rashes but after 2 days it again appears. We are using himalaya wipes. Can you suggest a cream, which can apply regularly as Eumosone-M contains steroid and should not be used regularly?

Yes I agree, we should not use steroids very often. Try to consult a dermatologist. Avoid rugging the nappy area very often, just use cotton cloth as nappy. Avoid diapers.

This is indeed a big worrisome infection. This happens with viral infection of the lungs and eventually turns up in a syndrome called ards. Where ecmo was needed. Ecmo removal is success but still stormy days aren't over. Pray to god. Hopefully it shall be fine.
