Hi Can I give water to my 51/2 months baby? if yes then what should be the quantity given to him?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Bangalore
Milk contains a lot of water. No need to give water till the child starts eating dry food, or passes less urine due to loose motion or vomiting.

SMA (spinal muscular atrophy) is a disease that robs people of physical strength by affecting the motor nerve cells in the spinal cord, taking away the ability to walk, eat, or breathe. It is the number one genetic cause of death for infants. SMA is caused by a mutation in the survival motor neuron gene 1 (SMN1. Chromosome 5 SMA is caused by a deficiency of a motor neuron protein called SMN, for “survival of motor neuron.” This protein, as its name implies, seems to be necessary for normal motor neuron function. Its deficiency is caused by genetic flaws (mutations) on chromosome 5 in a gene called SMN1. Neighboring SMN2 genes can in part compensate for nonfunctional SMN1 genes. Other rare forms of SMA (non-chromosome 5) are caused by mutations in genes besides SMN. In several forms of SMA, respiratory muscle weakness is a significant problem. It’s the most common cause of death in types 1 and type 2 chromosome 5 (SMN-related) SMA. When the respiratory muscles weaken, air doesn’t move into and out of the lungs very well, with subsequent adverse effects on general health. Signs of weakening respiratory muscles are headaches, difficulty sleeping at night, excess sleepiness during the day, poor concentration, chest infections and, eventually, heart damage and respiratory failure. Often, in infantile-onset SMA, the muscles between the baby's ribs are very weak, while the diaphragm muscle stays fairly strong. This leads to children who appear to be breathing by moving their bellies rather than their chests and to a pear-shaped body in these infants. For chromosomal changes there is hardly no specific treatment and you have to explain the nature of your child's trouble . He needs a neurological treatment for relief of symptoms.

My grand child 2 months old shows sort of tremors in all limbs for just a fraction of a second 4 to 5 times a day.Is it a cause of concern needing medical attention?

Pediatrician, Pune
Was the baby born pre mature, did he have any problems at time of birth? the tremors you are describing, could be jittriness, because of low blood sugar and calcium in the babies, kindly get it checked, and evaluated by your pediatrician, sometimes it may be normal till 3 months of age, please ensure and consult your pediatrician.

Cold is self limited disease which get cured after some days. If nostrils are blocked, instill 1 to 2 drops of saline nasal drops in both nostrils 3 to 4 times in a day.

Hi lybtrate user, even if you are not getting milk that's ok. You can start the baby with semisolid food and slowly you can give her solid food.

Hello, ●New born baby is unable to distinguish between night & daytime. Hence, after few week, you have to educate the baby the difference between  day & night in order to establish sound sleep in the night. ●When its day, the baby should be brought in sun light to recognise the day time and similarly in night the baby should be kept in a dim. Light to recognise eving or night time. Her day should be brighter and the night be darker. ●This has to be ensured  that child is adequetly ,fed before going to bed & continued feeding 2 hrly. ●Some time the baby suffers from abdominal pain, earache,headache due to change in climate, cause her weep. ●  usually, we fail to assess the room- temprature being suitable for the baby to make her sleep, comfortably.Ac should be tuned & fan should be adjusted as per the need be. ● in the night while feeding the baby of your own  baby asleeps without taking sufficient quty of milk, makes her weep, again and again during sleep, please keep checking the fact & adjusted as the condition warants. Homoeopathically,  your baby might be nurtured, successfully. Your feedback is solicited to followup your baby. The care.

Hello, Lybrate user, it depends upon the constitution of the baby, if your baby is fatty, flabby & fare, she might face sweating on forehead, mild heat upon head with cold sole with salivation while asleep. Give her the under noted homoeopathic medicine:@ Calcarea carbo 30- 1 drop, thrice with 1 tsfl of milk. Report wkly. Prevent your baby from cold intake, exposure to cold climate. You need to remain fit to keep your baby fit & fine. Report, wkly, your feedback matters for further follow-up, please. Tk care.
