I became a mother newly and I am unable to feed my baby properly because I won't get a lot of milk to feed him.

There r some galactogauges available like shatavary, which you can take to increase the milk production. If the child is still not getting enough milk then you have to give him formula milk.

How to encourage healthy eating habits in your toddler

DNB Paediatrics, DCH, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
How to encourage healthy eating habits in your toddler

Whether you have a toddler or a teen, I believe, five of the best strategies to improve nutrition and encourage smart eating habits in kids would be :

1. Have regular family meals.

2. Serve a variety of healthy foods and snacks.

3. Be a role model by eating healthy yourself.

4. Avoid battles over food.

5. Make eating a playtime and probably a way of spending quality time with your kids.involve them in the process.

Kids who take part in regular family meals are also:

- more likely to eat fruits, vegetables, and grains

- less likely to snack on unhealthy foods

- less likely to smoke, use marijuana, or drink alcohol

 

You could Follow these basic guidelines:

1. Work fruits and vegetables into the daily routine, aiming for the goal of at least five servings a day.

2. Make it easy for kids to choose healthy snacks by keeping fruits and vegetables on hand and ready to eat. Other good snacks include low-fat yogurt, peanut butter and celery, or whole-grain crackers.

3. Serve lean meats and other good sources of protein, such as fish, eggs, beans, soya, tofu.

4. Choose whole-grain breads and cereals so kids get more fiber.

5. Limit fat intake by avoiding fried foods and choosing healthier cooking methods, such as broiling, grilling, roasting, and steaming. Choose low-fat or nonfat dairy products.

6. Limit fast food and low-nutrient snacks, such as chips and candy. But don't completely ban favorite snacks from your home. Instead, make them "once-in-a-while" foods, so kids don't feel deprived.

7. Limit sugary drinks, such as soda and fruit-flavored drinks. Serve water and low-fat milk instead.

And above all ----- Be a Role Model Yourself!

The best way for you to encourage healthy eating is to eat well yourself.!!!!

That's all for now, for my next dose(article) ...stay tuned!

Many children complain pain in the legs especially in the night. It's called growing pain. You can apply some analgesic balms and can give some analgesic like paracetamol if the pain is more.

Breast feeding mother's diet should not cause any ill effects on the baby. If your baby's overall growth and weight gain is fine, then this vomiting is actually posseting. All babies regurgitate a small amount of milk. Try burping the baby after feeding.

My baby having loose motion from night onwards 8 times and my baby age is 15 days.
Hello, Lybrate user, it's normal to have loose motions with each feeding since, digestive system of your baby is not fully developed to digest the feeding properly. You are required to keep an eye on general condition of your baby to be maintained in order. Give her homoeopathic medicine:@ Aloe sac 30-1 drop with 1tsfl of milk, thrice. You need to be fit in order to keep your baby healthy. Avoid, junk food, gaseous intake, being transferred to your baby making her sick. Report after 3 days. Your feedback matters for further follow-up, please. Tk, care.

Watering of eye may be due to blocked eye canal opening in nose n difficulty in opening of eye may be due to infection. Use Antibiotic eye drops 3-4 hourly for infection but consult eye specialist for eye blocked too.

Hi, Febrile seizures grade in children when they have high grade fever of 104 or 105 degrees. That is why tepid sponging is advised so that the forehead temperature comes down quickly. Children who are well taken care of, Do not land up with seizures. Family history of diabetes is not the cause of Febrile seizures.

Causes of Eczema

MBBS, DDV
Dermatologist, Mumbai
Causes of Eczema

Causes of Eczema:

The specific cause of eczema remains unknown, but it is believed to develop due to a combination of hereditary (genetic) and environmental factors.

Children are more likely to develop eczema if a parent has had it or another atopic disease. If both parents have an atopic disease, the chances increase further.

Environmental factors are also known to bring out the symptoms of eczema. These include:

  • Irritants - soaps, detergents, shampoos, disinfectants, juices from fresh fruits, meats, or vegetables
  • Allergens - dust mites, pets, pollens, molddandruff
  •  Microbes - bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus,viruses, certain fungi
  • Hot and cold temperatures - hot weather, high and low humidity, perspiration from exercise
  • Foods - dairy products, eggs, nuts and seeds, soy products, wheat
  • Stress - it is not a cause of eczema but can make symptoms worse
  • Hormones - women can experience worsening of eczema symptoms at times when their hormone levels are changing, for example during pregnancy and at certain points in their menstrual cycle.

Dronis 20 is a contraceptive pill designed specially for feeding mothers so that milk production is not reduced. That is why estrogen content is 20 and not 30. Best contraception for you is iucd or copper t and if that is not suitable then only dronis 20 to be started.
