Your child is perfectly normal. Sucking finger in this age is an esseantial eeflex in thjs child called sucking reflex which help child in sucking breast. Weight of your child is also normal. After 4 to 6 month of age onky milk is not enough, you should also start giving him some semisolid food like daliya, khichadi,

Rise in CRP alone can not diagnose a patient having sepsis. CRP can be rised in simple cold with high grade fever also and once the fever resolved and decreases CRP came down as you have mentioned. LRTI can be diagnosed by examining patients chest. It can be viral or bacterial and CRP can be rised in any of them. This much antibiotics or medication is not required in LRTI and none in viral. Sepsis is related to complications if it is in real present. Blood culture and patients symptoms both if looked in a 2 year child can confirm sepsis. Chest X-ray with examination of patient will confirm LRTI. In any case though if such big injections are started they have to be given for atleast 5 days if really needed. But problem what happened here is that antibiotics has been already started so blood culture if done at this stage may grow no organism. In this case patient can be looked symptomatically and has to be examined, get a blood culture if not done, Chest x ray is a must if some one said LRTI. All things need to be evaluated.

During the 1st month of age, I fed my baby every 2 hrs in a day. She is in 2nd month now. Do I continue feeding like this? or what should be the frequency of feeding?

General Physician,
There is no rule to feed by clock. If the baby demands feed you can give whenever bay cries for milk. This is called demand feed. There are many things to take care especially till the first birthday.. For which you ask me privately in this site.

Babies start standing with support by 9 months & without support by 9 to 12 months. By 13 months they should be able to walk without support. 1 or 2 months delay is not at all a problem.

Even in very early morning, around 4 AM-6 AM he sneezes more because of the cold environment. Might be his resistance power is not so good. Please suggest me, how to get rid from this issue and how would be the diet for him to grow up physically, mentally/memory. Thanks a lot.

Best option would be to visit nearest patanjali chikitsalay for advice. The. Medicines etc they prescribe are free from harmful side effects as compared to allopathic medicine. Plus, they can suggest pranayama that naturally boosts mental and physical health. That should be the best start for your child. Also, watch and practice as shown on astha channel daily 5-7: 30 am and you will see so many small children doing what is being taught on way to good health.

Our son is 4.5 years old. For last 2-3 days he have temperature in the night. Daytime he is feeling ok and going school too. Please advice me why it's happening so. Giving 5ml syrup in the morning and evening.

General Physician,
Body temperature, whether you’re sick or well, just gets higher later in the day. But the explanation behind that answer has to do with all sorts of things. Three factors regulate your body temperature: A small gland at the base of the brain called the hypothalamus Your body’s vital functions (such as your muscle activity and heart rate) The temperature of your surroundings. Temperature usually follows a built-in 24-hour cycle. Its lowest point is between 3 and 6 a. M. Followed by a peak between 4 and 11 p. M. Two major factors regulate this cycle: Your hypothalamus has its own 24-hour hormone-secretion pattern. We don’t know the reason for this so-called circadian rhythm, but to some extent the day/night light cycle helps regulate it. The things the body does during the day (heartbeat, muscle movements, breathing) involve a release of heat energy, causing your core body temperature to warm up as the day progresses. This explains why your temperature increases toward the end of the day under normal conditions. If he is active and playful and temperature is not associated with runny nose, cough, tired or ill look you need not give medicine.

u should plan to return to your pre-pregnancy weight by 6 to 9 months after delivery. Most women lose half of their baby weight by 6 weeks after childbirth (postpartum). The rest usually comes off over the next several months. eat to loose weight at every 4 hour interval. DO NOT skip meals. ...Eat 5 to 6 small meals a day with healthy snacks in between (rather than 3 larger meals). Eat breakfast. ... Slow down. ... Choose nonfat milk and dairy products. .. .When you reach for a snack, choose fruits and vegetables. .. .Drink 8 or 9 cups of liquids a day. breast feeding reduces moms weight

Children with a positive self concept tend to be more confident, do better in school, act more independently and are more willing to try new activities.

Mustard oil is very strong for baby skin, so it can causes rash and skin burn so don't use it. If baby is cranky because of itching or burning use caladril lotion local application. You can use coconut oil, olive oil etc for massage.

Watering of eye may be due to blocked eye canal opening in nose n difficulty in opening of eye may be due to infection. Use Antibiotic eye drops 3-4 hourly for infection but consult eye specialist for eye blocked too.

General Physician,
Balls? or white patch? where exactly? if they are movable. They could be lymphnodes. But in 4 month old there is no chance unless he has some infection in the throat or on the skin. You need to give more details. Come to private consultation with all details.

Avoid tin food which has multiple adverse effects on baby. Exclusive breastfeeding for first 6 months is ideal. Breasrfeeding during travel is not in issue for the greater interest of your baby's good health in future.

If she had been dry for 2-3 years after age of 3 years, take it easy and don't make her conscious or scold her. Get her urinated before retiring at about 10 O' clock. Otherwise get her properly checked.
