If you are bottle feeding stop it and give only breast milk. As we are not allowed to prescribe in questions forum you meet a doctor or ask me personally.

To augment the quantity of breast milk, take 1 gm roasted wheat flour, 10 gm walnut leaves, mix the two and prepare chapattis. Fry the chapattis in ghee made from cow's milk. Eating these chapattis for seven days increases the production of breast milk.

Dear lybrate-user, normally hot water in rubber bottle fomentation along with medication with pain and muscles spasm relieving agents with local application of gel will make this better in next 5 to 7 days, moreover avoid position that causes pain.

Homeopathy is not a remedy of autism. Autism a developmental disorder which can be well tackled with regular training and behavioural therapy under the guidance of a psychiatrist. Dont waste your time as parents can be the best therapist and trainer with little professional guidance.

Ideally you shall send us photo of what kind allergy is there. Anyways. Best safe way is to give antihistaminics. Syp. Xyzal 2.5 ml twice a day and see how it improves. Or else asap meet dermatologist.

I am a premature baby when I was born. So the nurse gave me a formulated milk instead of breast milk, so did I have any risk of disease when I becoming old.

Formula milk is designed according to babys needs, so you are not at any risk per say. It is quite helpful for premature baby as they dont have strength to take breast feeding which needs lot of efforts. When you gain weight, you can switch to breast milk, otherwise your mother can express breast milk and that can be given orally by syringe, so you wont have to fully depend upon formula feed and mother also starts getting more milk.

She is 9 years old. But even now she has bed wetting problem while sleeping in night. How can we get rid of her this problem.

Bedwetting after 6 years is abnormal. You must rule out urine infection by a culture sensitivity test, then you must try with non pharmacological methods like avoiding water after 5pm etc.

It's a good question. I think your baby has viral fever. Will not need any antibiotic. Infact you should not ask for antibiotic unless treating doctor suggests.

After c section I have no breastfeeding first 8 days after that I have very low supply what is my problem.

Pediatrician

Late starting of breastfeeding is the main cause, as baby sucking is best stimulation for better breast milk output. Continue to feed. Also check your medicines, you are taking. If there is Pyridoxine in any drug, please stop it as it also decreases milk output.

Hello, if breathing difficulty is only in sleep position there might be another concern like reflux but still try nasal saline drops for nose when in lying position, give steam inhalation for 5-10 min before sleep but no vicks please. Also, as it is 10 days is long period so see your paediatrician to rule out other concerns like reflux/infection. Take care.

Hi congratulations on becoming a new mom. A new born baby sneezing is not synonymous with cold . They try to clear their nostrils with this reflex . At the same time for the nasal blockade you could put normal saline nasal drops with the name of nasoclear or otrinoz saline drops , one drop 4-6 times in a day in both the nostrils to help the baby clear the nose and feed properly . Keep a humidifier in the room if you can to prevent drying of secretions .

Hi my daughter is 6 years two weeks before she had stomach infection .so I took antibiotics . Then she got fine .

Continue fevago for 3-5 days. If it is viral infection she will be fine. If no response then only think of blood test.

It seems that you feel the situation is out of your control and you are looking for the means to change your son's behavior. Little children are like a sponge, they absorb things and learn front us and environment around them. There are main two reason that children misbehave. 1. They want your attention and love. 2. Just like any human they too are wired to assert power. When they misbehave and gets attention they feel powerful and continue to behave that way. Right now I do understand that you get frustrated with his behavior and out of your own habit you might show some kind of aggression by shouting or sometimes even slapping. Abusing someone is not a solution to any problem rather it worsens the situation. Through our behavior we are planting seeds in out child's mind. For you to change this situation you need to be very patient and calm. Once your behavior and your attitude will change his behavior will also change. Also when we lable our child as stubborn jiddi shy or noughty. We are feedimg their mind woth these ideas. A d they will try to be best at that. Now kids do not do all these things knowingly. They have no idea what else to do so they respond to your stimulus and behavior. Also it is very normal for parents to feel overwhelmed and frustrated and dispute k owing so many things it is difficult to respond ideally in a heated situation. I am sure this could be one of the major reason for frustration as well. What you need is a support from someone who understand you and also know how to guide you through the situation step by step so that you will lean and change the way you are responding now. Once this happens you will get back the control and things will turn into posotive direction. I would suggest you to either call me or consult someone in your city and seek help. If you work with someone on weekly basis it will help you make some changes. If you decide to enter into 3 to 4 month committed relationship, I do have some tools and techniques which you will be able to learn and apply immediately. Hope this helps wishing you very best.
