Till the age of 4 - 6 months he must be given only breast milk. Then you can start semisolids. You feed on demand (whenever he demands) sticking to 2- 4 hours apart.

Donn worry. Breast feed regularly. If started on oral feed give mashed banana. See her loo every day. She will pass coin. Xray may be done to see the location of coin.

General Physician,
Spitting Up in Babies
Why do babies spit up?
Babies spit up when they've eaten too much or when they've swallowed too much air while feeding. Spitting up usually happens when babies burp. It can also happen when your baby is drooling. Spitting up is not vomiting. Babies usually don't notice when they spit up. Vomiting is forceful and painful. Spitting up is common for most babies until about the time they can eat solid foods (usually around 6 months to 1 year of age).

The medical term for "spitting up" is gastroesophageal reflux, or reflux. It happens when milk or solid food in the stomach comes back up into your baby's esophagus (the esophagus is the tube that joins the mouth and the stomach).

What can I do to help my baby?
Feed your baby by placing him or her in an upright position. If you bottle-feed you baby, burp him or her every 3 to 5 minutes. Make sure the hole in the nipple on the bottle is not too large, or milk will come out too fast. Avoid laying your baby down following a feeding or moving him or her around too much before the food settles in the stomach.

Some babies spit up less if their formula is thickened with rice cereal. Ask your doctor if you can add 2 to 3 teaspoons of rice cereal to each ounce of formula. You might have to use a nipple with a larger hole so the thicker formula will come out easily.

Some babies also spit up less if they are given less milk at each feeding, but are fed more often.
Will reflux cause problems for my baby?
Spitting up is messy, but it is normal during your baby's early months. It rarely involves choking, coughing or pain.

However, you should contact your doctor if you notice your baby has the following symptoms:
Is not gaining weight.
Spits up a large amount of milk (more than 1 or 2 tablespoons)
Spits up or vomits forcefully
Has fewer wet diapers than normal
Seems very tired or lethargic
Spits up green or brown liquid
Should I CONSULT A doctor
------------------------------------
If your baby experiences any of the symptoms listed above, you should CONSULT ONLINE PRIVATELY IN THIS SITE/drsajeev/lybrate

First, your doctor will make sure your baby is healthy and growing well. Your doctor will also check to see if your baby has breathing problems. If your doctor thinks your baby is fine, nothing else needs to be done. Your doctor will probably want to see your baby regularly./REMAIN IN CONSTANT TOUCH,ONLINE OR PERSONALLY

If your baby's reflux is causing excessive problems, your doctor may prescribe medicine to help treat it. This medicine is the same one used for heartburn in adults. If your baby continues to not gain weight or develops other problems, your doctor might do some additional tests.

Don`t worry sabita . Thalassemia minor is not a fatal disease at all, only thing we needs to know is, that hemoglobin in such patients will remain a little low, somewhere around 10 mg/dL, so please consult a pediatric hemato-oncologist so get full counselling done regarding the disease . please dont go by what other people say. For any query whatever it is , consult your pediatric- hemato-oncologist.

Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication there will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly.

Hi. My son is having tie tongue. He is 3.5 years old. My query is what is the correct age to treat it? What is the correct way to treat it? Is there any other complications in it? What kind of specialist doctor needed to treat it? Pediatric or ENT?

MBBS, MD
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
When child can not take out the tongue and have spongy franum below tongue to connect base of pharynx we call it tongue tie. Well if you thing child doesnot speek because of tongue tie. You are wrong. Because we do not speak by tongue. Tongue is for taste and propell the food backwards.

My baby is 3.5 months old. She is having low weight 4.7 kg. She is not taking mothers milk. How to increase her weight.

Pediatrician, Muzaffarnagar
She is definitely not gaining wt properly. Encourage mother and put baby on breast for breast feeding which is "Amrit" for up to 6 months of age. If baby is not sick and is active, there is no reason for baby not taking mother's milk. No substitute is even equivalent to mother'milk. There is no other way to increase wt of baby except milk at this age.

Tantrums at Two

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Gurgaon
Tantrums at Two
The children become very active, irritable, cranky, start having a mind of their own, suddenly become very choosy in what they want to eat or drink or want to do for that matter. Do not worry. It is normal. Now that they can walk, communicate with some words and have started moving around; they are very excited. This new found freedom is amazing for them. Be firm but do not lose your cool. Keep guiding them about what's wrong and whats right, let them explore. But yes if you are too flustered then they can be calmed down with the help of a few doses of very mild homeopathic medicines. Have a great day.

Is baby sleeping in womb? if yes, so which time?

Is baby sleeping in womb? if yes, so which time?
Baby' sleeping is different from ours. But baby will be silent and we can call it sleeping especially when the mother is active and moving. Then baby will be feeling like rocking in cradle. Baby is then active and moves at night when mother is quiet.
