If he is bottle fed, the bottle must be stopped and fed with cup or glass. Is there fever? you can give gramoneg- suspension 5 ml twice daily. Ask me if you want further advice.

Some babies will have delayed neck control. If other milestones are normal you can wait for 1 more month.

Which is better.
It is not necessary to use lotion or cream to infant. A simple massage with veg oil like coconut, olive or sun flower oil is quite good.

You have not stated properly how long the headache lasts each time it comes. If it's for only a few hours and goes away after sleep, it is likely to be a tension headache. He may be having stress due to study or problems in school or home. Drinking less water may also cause headache due to dehydration. Blocked nose, sinus infection and nasal allergy also may cause long standing headache. Migraine headache lasts longer, usually more than a day if untreated. Get him properly examined by your local pediatrician. He may need a CT Scan to diagnose if the problem is persistent and worsening.

If parents are having same hairy body then it's normal to have such condition. I will advise you, not do any thing for removal of hair, with the the time it will be less. If you think there is real disturbing problem then consult an endocrinologist gor harmony aspect of condition.

No short cut for recovery. Age is 4 mths (confused with 4.10) many times frequent stool is normal for this age. But if doctor has advised you medicine, continue and review with him if child is not accepting feeds or urine output is decreased.

My daughter is about two years old. Her grand parents are worried about her weight & giving junk food & soft drinks inorder to increase her weight. She weighs 9.5kg. Is it too low.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Junk food and soft drinks will increase body fat, and lead to unhealthy weight gain will be detrimental to her in long run. Give her home diet inspire her to play lot. Her weight is not too low and is on lower side of range. Weight depends on genetic constitution too. Children are like their parents.

Hi, thank you for your query. You have not mentioned the frequency and colour of the motions. It would be best to consult a doctor and get a stool routine examination done. You can give her plenty of oral fluids in the form of lemonade, butter milk to prevent dehydration. Give her semisolid diet. Wishing your daughter all the best. Regards,

Hi, continue what your doctor prescribed. If symptoms are not relieved the you can review. Pencillins and cephalosporins can be used in entire pregnancy for uti treatment. Better avoid tablets for long duration.

My baby is 6 months old n we r going for painless vaccination. I just wanna know is it safe for baby or not.

My baby is 6 months old n we r going for painless vaccination. I just wanna know is it safe for baby or not.
Hi lybrate-user! Recently many people are coming up with doubts about painless vaccination. I would like to tell you that apart from oral polio drops and rotaviral vaccine, every vaccine is an injection which involves prick with needle. Of course it is going to give some pain to your child for that moment. Nowadays combination vaccines come with 4 to 5 components so that your child will be pricked only once or twice and not 4 to 5 times. Hope this helped you.

Adolescent Nutrition

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health
Pediatrician, Hyderabad

Adolescent Nutrition

Adolescence is a period of transition from childhood toadulthood. It is also a period of biologic, physical, emotional, and cognitive change. Teenagers want to be more independent, have an active lifestyle, and find their identity. They are frequently sensitive to criticism. These factors can put the adolescent at nutritional risk. In addition to growth and greater demand for calories and nutrients, their change in lifestyle affects food choices. Adolescents may skip meals, eat away from home, increase snacking, eat more convenience fast foods, and generally be more responsible for their food intake.4–6

Adolescents today are inundated with images of the “ideal body” from all types of media and at the same time struggling to define their own body image during an impressionable phase of their lives. It is during this time that disordered eating can become apparent and can manifest itself in an obsession with weight control, which can lead to long-term health concerns. Eating together as a family in a relaxed environment is very important at this stage.

The typical adolescent may display the following nutritional habits:
• Derives over 30% of calories from fat
• Skips breakfast (20%)
• Skips lunch (22%)
• Snacks heavily from 3:00 pm to bedtime (50%)
