Basic principles of feeding are no baby can remain hungry until critically ill. Please don't give them choice of food, move on to next feed if they refuse one. Eggs are good proteins with high biological value means maximum absorption and utilisation of proteins. Milk in a day for her age 500ml is upper limit. Offer her home made food which your family eats regularly even if she doesn't eat every time.

I can understand your concern - commonest cause of such loose stools are - milk protein allergy, lactose intolerance and improper digestion n food habit and rarely disease known as" celiac disease" which is an allergy of gehu. Wheat. So pls get tests for these many issues done especially - test named as ttg-a.

My Baby is going to be 4 months on 2nd may. He's experiencing motion several times a day, like 7 to 8 times. He does green watery motions. He's suffering this since last 1 week, before that it was normal yellowish once a day. Can you please tell us if it's normal for babies or should I consult to a pediatrician.

Stool colour is rarely important, unless it represents blood. Breast fed 4 month old baby can pass 7-8 motions in a day. However, as you have said that stool frequency has increased only recently, I would suggest you to get your baby evaluated by a paediatrician. Any change in food, introduction of new food item or a new medicine could lead to diarrhoea. Try to offer exclusive breast feeds till your baby is 6 months of age.

My daughter is suffering from chronic cold continuously for past 4 years. Tried every type of medication ie allopathy, homeopathy, ayurveda, but nothing worked. She is 11 years old and is now frustrated with this. Pl help.

BHMS, Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Medicine
Homeopath,
Hello, please give her vit d 60, 000 stat every week for a month. In children calcium balance is important any discrepancy in calcium level leads to cold. We would start a low dose calcium (homoeopathic med) if complaint persist after a month.

Lets hope there are no problems in future. For now, I hope you are pumping breastmilk for feeding your baby to be fed in the ICU. That would be the best food and best medicine your baby can get to develop a strong immunity for future.

Breastfed babies do not normally pass motion every day and need not worry. If he is bottle fed you give additional fluids like boiled water . Avoid bottle feeding

Better avoid milk & give cereals, milk products. Keep changing foods offered. If vomitings are persistent any antiemetic drug will help. Solid food will provide condensed calories vital for growth.

Difficult to comment medication on skin related stuff. Without seeing child. Shall not encourage doctors for such medics on online forums. We can guide you here with common concerns. Diet and prevention. Skin is sensitive matter. Hope you understand.

Fever may be a symptom of some serious infection. Oflo m is an antibiotic usually used for stomach infection. It should not be given without consulting a doctor. Show to a pediatrician.

Two months old usually do not cough without any cause. At this age if baby is sick looking likely case is pneumonia otherwise reflux can be the case. Consult pediatric respiratory specialist.

Wait, breast-feeding will regain and start putting on weight. If treating pediatrician is confident, you need not worry. All babies lose weight initially, though your child seems to have lost more weight than expected. Follow your pediatrician, don't worry.

Mam you need to understand that lactation is a natural process and mother's milk can be given to kids till 2 yrs of age. You should be happy that you will be able to feed your child with your own milk. There is no need to give outside milk when you have got sufficient milk. If you are working somewhere and feeding the child is a problem consult nearby gynae spl for stopping lactation.
