My younger son having a worm problem is to much. So whatever we do. I give him bandy-plus syrup.

DMB
Pediatrician, Chennai
Worm infestation is related to hygiene. The whole family needs deworming. He should do nail biting or finger sucking. Describe the worms- small or long?

My 2 and a half month old son is on exclusive breast feed. From yesterday morning he started potty with mucus, watery, sometimes foamy, after he did it 7 times I called a doctor and he prescribed enterogermina 1 ample two times for two days, z&d drops 0.5 ml daily for 14 days and vitazyme 3 times daily, I gave my son the medicine, still next day morning he did potty 6 times, mucus was still there, but inspite of all these my son was smiling, he was playing, sleeping but at night he is crying excessively, uncontrollable,what should I do? Will my son take time to be ok? What to do when he is crying so much specially at night?

Your son is smiling and so should be you. Believe in son's smile and play, no child with illness will play and smile. Enjoy every moment of blissful life with happy and playful child before he grows older. Nothing in life is going to be perfect and as per our wish. We need to cope up with fears anxiety and what not, with the help of professionals, when over all life is okay. In my opinion smiling, playful, exclusively breastfed child who is growing well does not need any treatment just because he passes motion frequently.

How to stop breast feeding completely in a toddler.

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatrician, Delhi
It can be very difficult to stop breast feeding suddenly. You have to be firm and very persuasive. Tell her that she is now a big girl and offer her her a variety of interesting food, snack items specially when she is hungry and keep her diverted from the breast. Basically see that she does not remain hungry. Also, you can have some children come and play at home with her to distract her at feed times, or you can take her out to play. Children also crave for breast for remaining close to mother, feeling secure and safe. Offer her more hugs and cuddles and say how she can drink with a new sipper, how she can use a straw. Make the change over an interesting fun activity. But be firm, and determined and be ready to face a few tears.

No it cannot be. It is not for that. Better Consult and take proper treatment. Don't experiment with the baby.

My 14 year old daughter an epilepsy patient taking levipil 250 fir the last nine months twice a day after taking MRI & EEG. Now she feels shivering her legs also. Previously early morning she has seizures. After taking the tablets she has no seizures. But one day in the night she forget to take the medicine and on the next day early morning seizures again came. Please advice.

Pediatrician, Bathinda
My dear friend, you should not skipe medicine. Take medicine like food. Never forget medicine, as you this disease requires long term medications. If with this medicine, problem persist, then you have to visit again to increase dose or change the medicine. But according to your massage, it seems it is under control but you have skipped medicine then only problem occur. So it is better to never skip medicine at any cost. Hope it will help you.
