It's traditional to massage a baby before his bath. In many families, oils are preferred over creams and lotions for this purpose. Vegetable get absorbed quickly and digest easily if your baby sucks his oil-smeared thumb. If you're using a vegetable oil, cold pressed, unrefined oils are best suited for massage Coconut oil is believed to be a good choice in the hot summer months. It is easily available and has a cooling effect on the body. sesame oil (til ka tel) is a popular alternative in many regions. Although olive oil and almond oil are more expensive than vegetable oils, they work well in hot or cold weather. Mustard oil is preferred for giving massages in cold weather as it warms the body.

To treat the cause of problem is best to get rid of disease. U have yourself caught culprit of cough- chocolate, biscuit or other food from out side. Stop giving all items like these, cough shall be cured. Mild cold time to time is not abnormal. However for increasing immunity, Vitamin A 60.000 units once in a week for 6 weeks and Zinc syrup 20 mg daily for 2 weeks can be given.

Crocin and calpol are same drug, paracetamol fever is not coming down possibly there is an infection. If it is viral, it will come down within 3-4 days with regular calpol/crocin 10-15 mg/kg dose every four hours. If it is bacterial infection you will need to give antibiotic, it is okay and usually antibiotic is given prophylactically, to cover secondary bacterial infection that may set in during a viral infection. You can check her cbc and tft (as weight is just below expected), you inform me.

Not more than 2 cups of milk is required for childs growth, in addition giving extra milk reduces appetite, and the child does not take the diet, solid food essential for his growth, also excessive milk causes iron deficiency anemia, constipation, additional supplementation of milk may not be required, enhance his other food intake, rice dal, chapati, all of which contain sufficient calcium, outdoor playing and exposing to sunlight provides the require vit d and calcium for his growth.

A. Nutrition deserves special attention during pregnancy because of increased demand and specific role of different nutrients for the baby during pregnancy.
B. A woman whose diet is adequate before pregnancy is usually able to come out with full term pregnancy
Without elaborate modifications of her diet and lifestyle. For example, in diabetes, incidence of structural defects can be reduced to nil by bringing the blood glucose level under good control couple of months before conceiving.
C. Maternal nutrition taken during pregnancy are very important in supporting breastfeeding. Breast milk is best and complete food for baby during first four months as it also provides antibodies for protection against many infections.
D. Undernourished mothers are prone to delivery before nine months.
So, take good care of your health during pregnancy.

Please consult your doctor again and update him on your son's health. He might change the medicines or reduce the dose. You also have the option of changing your doctor. These medications usually come with many side effects. I suggest that you do your own research, read up and educate yourself and take an informed decision. The health of your son could be because of this medicine or something in his diet or the seasonal changes. Though allopathy medicines bring faster relief, they come with numerous side effects. On the other hand, ayurveda and homeopathy are gentler on the mind and body and fewer side effects and sometimes slow to show improvement. Nevertheless, you are doing a wonderful job as a parent and taking care of your son. Take care.

Common causes: is an infection or ,Cow's milk protein allergy. Infection can be because of bottle feeds due to inadequate sterilization. Also putting hands or cloth in the mouth may cause it. Hence get a stool culture test. Also give only breast feeds for 6 months. CMPA can be because of giving top feeds, even formula. It can also happen due to milk products consumption by mother who is breast feeding. Stopping cows milk in mother and child is the answer. Soya formulas may be used.

it might be the breast milk amount is less or the nipples retracted / not well formed. Consult and show your obstetrician. Take lactohil pwder twice daily with milk. Retracted nipples can be massaged and pulled out with vitamin E oil gradually

FIRST FORTY FIVE DAYS AND TRADITIONS.

We welcome our bundle of joy with old, washed, sun dried clothes as they are almost sterile. New clothes are probably handled by many and may be infected. The breast feeding is started with the help of young unmarried girl. This educates the girl about this AMRIT SAVEN. Mother is given ajwayan water which helps to lactate. On the sixth day bua does the ceremony of chatti by giving bath and putting on new clothes to baby. By sixth day the umbilical cord falls and there after the baby should be given a bath. On the occasion of chatti mother is given all kind of foods and after that she is supposed to have everything including all fruits, vegetables and dal, then ladoos or panjiri rich in ghee, dry fruits. These help mother for extra calories and minerals especially calcium and iron required postpartum. In this ceremony Bua plays an important role and rewarded with lots of gifts by bhabhi for the hard work she has been doing and will do after that, till 45 days. During these crucial 45 days outsiders are not allowed to get in mother?s room as people coming from outside may infect the child . The child is never left alone, a knife or a match boxes is kept besides baby, it is a primitive method to save the baby from animals and strangers. The God (baby and mother) has come and the duo should be prayed (taken care) and not do pooja or attend functions

It's not necessarily abnormal, unless accompanied by greenish vomiting and distention of abdomen. If child is playful and taking feeds normally, nothing to worry. You may try glycerin suppository.

Please keep regular record of her temperature and see if it's rising. You hv to watch for other symptoms like cough cold, vomiting, lethargy or rashes before proceeding with this temperature. I prefer symptomatic treatment and general care till the fever is low grade without any systemic involvement.
