If it is stomach pain the baby may pull on the abdomen and try to lie on abdomen and you have to understand that babies often cry when they are hungry or napkin is wet / when they feel to pass urine and motion and crying by infants is always not due to pain as most mothers think. Next, if you give bottle feed you have to stop and burp well after each breastfeed and for gas in stomach you can give Colicaid drops which is herbal and safe.

I am 39 years old Indian, vegetarian man. My son (Born Aug. 2010), for last 2 years, has stopped eating proper meals, only drinks bottled milk (100 ml) 4-5 times a day, or want to eat snacks like chips, biscuits, namkeen, but that too very little quantity. Due to this he remains constipated (pass bowel in 3-4 days) and irritated. This is a vicious kind of cycle where he remains constipated as he not takes proper food in good quantity and on the other hand - don't want to eat because of constant bowel pressure. He doesn't take any Allopathic medicine or tonic. His height is approx 3 ft. and weight 15 Kg. He is otherwise very active child.

Looks like your five year old has never been weaned properly from milk to regular home food T the right time. He is now a big boy and you must set some basic ground rules for feeding. You'll have to stop snacks, set times for 3 major meals and not give more than 500 ml of milk per day. Making meals interesting, offering variations and involving child in food discussion and preparation as a play activity will help to change your faulty feeding patterns.

I am having lungs fibrosis I am taking wysolin 10 mg My lungs capacity is 17 % Daily 14 hour I am taking oxygen 2 litre. please help.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Although the history you have provided is incomplete. What has caused your lung fibrosis? is is due to lung disease ild (interstitial lung disease)? your lung capacity has gone really down if it is only 17%. You need to take good care of yourself now. Regularly keep monitoring your oxygen levels in blood using finger pulse oxymeter which should show your oxygen level atleast 90%, else you may have to increase the oxygen flow from your cylinder/concentrator. Wysolone is not quite helpful in advanced stages of ild fibrosis, so you may discuss with your treating doctor for its long term continuation. You may require supportive treatments like cough control and treatment of infections (if they occur) at the earliest. Its alos very important where you reside. If you are in any big city you may have doctors who are familiar with your type of disease patients, otherwise in smaller places doctors may not be well versed with the details of these group of diseases causing lung fibrosis. Take your treatment regularly and visit your doctor at slightest worsening of symptoms.

My 3 year old is sick with a temperature of 100 degrees she can not keep anything down including liquids. What should I do?

MD-Pediatrics
Pediatrician, Bikaner
In children refusal to feed is considered as a warning sign. What are her other complaints besides fever. Try to bring down fever with paracetamol drops which will help reduce temperature and throat pain (which could be the reason for his refusal to eat). Secondly consult a pediatrician and start antibiotics if required.

Bottle Tooth Decay is a serious problem.

Bottle Tooth Decay can happen if babies drink milk, formula, or juice out of bottles over long periods of time.

To avoid it:
Take the bottle away after your baby is done drinking.
Don't put your baby to bed with a bottle.

Meet a pediatrician at your location to find cause of fever and get irrelevant investigations done. 5 days fever needs a blood investigation for confirming the source of infection.

You can keep paracetamol suspension which can be given in the dosage of 10 to 15 mg per kg body weight per dose and for cold you can put saline nasal drops into each nostril frequently.

You can use them for sure, they will help out as there will be multi-vitamins, minerals in them. There will be standards and will be approved by the food authority before promoting the product on media. So, you can use, not a problem. Don't use any other supplements to boost health.

Chronic Gas Problem - Facts You Should Know About it

MBBS
General Physician, Chandigarh
Chronic Gas Problem - Facts You Should Know About it

Almost all of us have experienced bloating, gas or an upset stomach. Yet some people experience this problem at a chronic level. Gas occurs in the stomach and intestines due to breakdown of food into energy. All of us pass gas, however some people do more than others. An average person passes gas 5-20 times a day.

An upset stomach can often cause problems and can be a difficult battle for many people. Although the symptoms of gas problems often relate to an improper diet, yet other factors may be also responsible.

Causes and Symptoms of Gas Problems

  1. Swallowing air: The swallowed air which is not burped out, passes through the digestive system and is released through the opening of the anus. Hiccups can also occur if you have swallowed excessive air.
  2. Diet: The reaction of different foods varies from one person to another. Also foods that lead to odorous gas may also vary from person to person. Yet, spicy foods and dairy products are the most common causes of gas. Example - Beans, cabbage, onions, radishes, eggs, carbonated drinks, sugar, packaged foods etc.
  3. Medications: Certain medicines and supplements, including prescription drugs, can lead to gas problems and bloating. Further, medications which change the hormonal balance in the body can also cause bloating.
  4. Medical problems: Certain medical conditions such as Irritable bowel syndrome or bowel obstruction can also lead to an upset stomach.

Common symptoms of gas problems include gas pain, cramping, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation. In the worst of cases, gas and bloating indicate colon cancer. Such people experience rapid weight loss, anaemia and blood in stools.

Treatment
Modifying your lifestyle, in particular your dietary practices, is essential to a healthy recovery.

  • Avoiding foods such as spaghetti, oats, bran, barley, banana, bread etc. which contain high fibre content is important.
  • You can opt for over the counter medications after consulting your physician. Homeopathy and Ayurveda can be also opted as alternative forms of treatment.

My baby is 4 month old and as he rolling due to pressure on stomach he is vomiting 8-10 times and his toilet is yellowish color proper but doing 3 to 4 times a day little little. Here he is drinking and then rolling and then vomiting. He is not vomiting milk but its like curd. I consult a Dr. he suggested perinorm 8 drops thrice a day is it safe to give him perinorm as I have read a lot of side effect of perinorm. If not perinorm than kindly suggest a substitute for the same.

If baby's wt is about 5.5 kg and gaining regularly, you need not to worry. Burping after feed is best to control such type of vomiting (regurgitaion. It is normal and motion 3 to 4 times in a day is also normal. No need to give perinorm.

Probably he is suffering from breath holding condition. If it is breath holding, it may go on its own after some time and earlier if you do not pay attention to it. But it is better to consult pediatrician to ascertain real ailment as he suffered from seizure in infancy.
