It's called as growing pain. Many children of that age have that. You can give some analgesic like paracetamol if it's unbearable.

My 2months baby girl has been coughing for almost a week, no fever but with her cough, i'm worried something might be wrong with her? She coughs when she tries to burp or when she gets choked and it worries me. Now, when she coughs, i've now noticed that she is starting to have short breaths. Her nose was blocked, took her to the health centre, they gave her saline drops. I discussed with them about her cough also, I was told when I reach home to steam her. This is the 4th day I have been steaming her. I feel she is getting worse, since she is starting to have short breaths. Please help. Need advice.

If you are breastfeeding that itself acts as a contraception, if you had sex during safe period that is 7 days after your menses or 7 days before your menses, chances of pregnancy are less but do consult your gyanecologist before taking any pills.

Teeth eruption happens starting 6 to 12 months. However vitamin d deficiency can also delay the eruption. See that she is exposed to sunlight for at least 30 minutes daily. You should also give her vitamin d supplements 1 ml per day.

Care of child's teeth

Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Research, BDS

Proper posture of the child in feeding is essential to prevent rampant caries. If a child is fed in bottles containing sweetened additives in lying posture in the night time or sleeps with the bottle nipple in his mouth there is a high possibility of rampant caries and baby bottle syndrome. Brushing the childs teeth at night is a must prefarably with a fluoridated toothpaste but the quantity of the paste given to the child should not be more than one pea size. Visit your child's dentist every 6 months.
