It is nice that you r aware of importance of breast feeding. Take care that baby is sucking well while on breast and it is not only nipple in mouth but areola, a blackish area around nipple, is in mouth. It is usual reason, look for it. Continue exclusive breastfeeding. If you have mentioned your criteria for assessing baby's hunger n his birth n present wt, it had been better to advise further. If you feel so, you may consult privately with this link through Lybrate.

Engorged breast may cause pain in breast which becomes more while feeding baby. Light fomentation to breast and encourage to feed baby tolrating pain, may relieve pain. If it does not work, pls consult obstetrician.

According to recent recommendations there is no need to repeat rota viral vaccine even if the baby vomits. A small doseis enough to induce immunity. Go for 2nd dose after 2 months.

You can continue breastfeeding, it is very, very rare for a mom to need to stop breastfeeding for any illness. There are only a few very serious illnesses that might require a mom stop breastfeeding for a period of time or permanently.

Homoeopathic medicines can completely solve the bedwetting problems irrespective of children and adults. No side effects in homoeopathic medicines. 100% rapid and effective results. Medicine like causticum. Thuja, chimaphilla, etc if taken proper dosage for 3 months. Completely we can solve the problem. The first thing usually notice in patients having the enuresis problem is shy to consult a doctor. Please be free to approach me and solve your suffering soon with imported german homoeopathic medicines. You can consult online or directly. Thank you.

Breastfeeding should be stopped. Breastfeeding can be given maximum upto two years, after that it doesn't provide any nutrition to your child. Stop feeding and your problem will be solved.

MD

The number of antigens covered are more in the expensive one. Hence it is more effective than the cheaper version.

Nutrition For Expectant Mothers

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Jaipur
Nutrition For Expectant Mothers

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.

My baby is 15 month old. On Saturday he started vomiting and had fever. We went to our doctor and he gave medicines. Also informed us that he might have loose motions. And we have to do stool test. And yesterday he started having loose motions. Now our relatives are saying that all these are happening because of molar teeth eruptions. Is this true?

well teeth eruption per se is not the cause ..reason is habit of putting eveything in mouth while teeth eruption is happening.which brings lot many viruses in tummy.eventually leading to infections. so, 1.frequent hand washing and good hygeine is the only answer. 2.give probiotics 3.immunize the baby on time.

Now my child is 2 yrs. 6 M, can i admit him in nursery now or next year ?

DMB
Pediatrician,
You can admit in any form of group activity such as a play school or nursery. Advantages of admitting him are development of better communication skills, social skills and confidence building. The negative aspects are repeated coughs and colds, some loose stools, hand foot and mouth disease. The illnesses will all be minor and the influence on development far outweighs the risks. So go ahead, find a clean and safe place for your child.

You may try antihistamine levo citirizine 2.5 ml once in a day for 2 days and instill saline nasal drops in each nostrils 3-4 times in a day. If there is no relief or symptoms increases, consult doctor.
