I am giving daily idli, apple juice, cerelac, rice with moong dal, pomegranate juice, moosambi juice, potato, and then in night rice with dal, and last cerelac, to my lactose intolerant 10 month old boy baby. He is very thin. How to become fat? He cries while eating, also he is crying I never mind and I hold him tightly in my hands and I give food by spoon. When I give apple grinded, he does potty like the apple. List the foods to be given him daily to become fat and healthy.

you are giving 3 fruits in a day. Give only one fruit or its juice once in a day and give more dal etc cooked in oil or ghee in place of fruits. you may add suji or ata halwa. Crying may be due to hunger. Force feeding is more harmful. Now he is 10 months old, he can pick items he like and it. It may happen some time baby may not digest some item which is short in duration. after 1-2 months, he may start digesting grinded apple.

I think the paediatrician is right. If you still doubt get a 2nd opinion of another paediatrician and then decide what to do.

Give him paracetamol syrup for controlling fever and see a doctor if fever persists for more than a day.

Hi. No need to worry. Ulcers normally heals within 7 days. Give him liquid and semi- solid soft food items. Give him more fluids and juices ulcers will heal faster.

My son is becoming very stubborn day by day and doesn't listen to whatever is told to him. 1st word is always No to what ever we say. Also he is very introvert. He didn't mingle Wit his age group but yes he plays wit elder kids. How do I tackle him?

Its common behaviour in such age group children. Need not panic, just deal with love do not scold the child. Send him to some play school where he can mingle with children of his play group.

Breastfeeding - Know The Benefits!

Breastfeeding - Know The Benefits!

A mother’s milk is said to be the most nutritious food for a new born baby. It contains the perfect balance of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals needed for your baby and changes to keep up with your baby’s growing needs. However, the benefits of breastfeeding extend way beyond nutritional value. Breastfeeding is beneficial for both you and your baby. Ideally, a baby should be breastfed for at least the first six months.

Here are 5 major benefits of breastfeeding.

  1. Stronger immunity: Mother’s milk is rich in antibodies and a number of unique compounds that help the newborn child’s body fight bacterial and viral infections. No other form of baby food is as rich in these antibodies. Babies who have been breastfed have a lower risk of suffering from ailments such as ear infection, stomach upsets and respiratory problems. The first milk expressed by a woman’s breasts after giving birth is known as colostrums. This milk coats the baby’s digestive system and prevents the growth of harmful bacteria.
  2. Fewer allergies: Breast milk is easier to digest than formula or cow’s milk. This protects the gastrointestinal passages from inflammation and prevents undigested food from triggering allergic reactions. Being breastfed can also reduce the number of allergies a child may suffer from in their later years.
  3. Healthy body weight: Breastfeeding makes a child less likely to suffer from obesity in their later childhood and adult years. This is because breast milk contains less insulin and more hormones as compared to formula. This helps regulate fat absorption. On an average, babied fed on formula put on weight quickly and are more likely to overeat in their later years.
  4. Stronger bones: Breastfeeding is beneficial for both the child and the mother. When a woman is breastfeeding her child, her body’s ability to absorb calcium increases. This helps increase bone density, especially as pregnancy can make bones weak.
  5. Builds a strong mother-child bond: After 9 months of carrying a child to term, giving birth may lead to post partum depression and a mother may feel the connection between her and the child severed. Breastfeeding helps nurture this connection and provides emotional relief to both the mother and child. For the mother, this experience releases hormones that reduce stress and relax the body. For the baby, close physical contact is very important and this process provides the perfect opportunity to do so.

You need to clean the eyes, and simplest remedy and safest remedy is to put breast milk in the eyes. Breast milk contains antibodies and can cure many eye infections. If he is still not okay, please show him to a doctor and get him evaluated for eye infection.
