Try to make colourful food. Try to make her eat with her frnds. Try to add butter in khichdi and dalia. 2-3 gap in meals. Try new food items and give fair trial for 20 mins for each food item.

MY Son is 3 years old. Some docs say he is asthmatic, some say he has adenoids, some say he is allergic to weather and pollution, with the change of weather he always get cough and cold, that is so sever that I have to nebulize him with budesal, syrup levolin and an antibiotic. Sir, I want to know how long it will go, when can my son be alright.

Sir, I feel your concern. As a neutral doctor I would say that it may go on for a long time or may be for ever. These medicines are wonderful relievers but do not create immunity against allergens or infections. For that I lay stress on the use of supporting ayurveda treatment. Not that allopathy is bad but as said you should try to create immunity in the child. There are very simple herbals designed for children also. These are not quick relievers but give result in the long run and are safe, side effect less. If you agree, pl scan the latest reports/ prescription etc of paediatrician and send. Till then pl continue with the current treatment.

Doctor, My son is 1 year 8 months old. He has not vaccinated with IPV due to unavailability of the same. He has taken 6 doses of OPV. Can he be vaccinated with IPV now? Kindly let me know the procedure. Regards

The baby is safe after OPV too. IVP is a recent trend and the vaccine is running in shortage. In some government setuo it may be available. Don't worry if it is not given.

Don' t worry. Such discharge is normal for initial days of life due to maternal hormones effect on baby. If it persist or increase then refer your consult pediatrician.

Good afternoon madam, after 6 months baby recauire complementary feeds in the form of top up feeds. You please start giving her top of feed. Otherwise she well be lag behind in terms of growth as conpare to peer age groups and this will be really question of worry. One teeth at 14 months is ok, no issue.

Please advise me a home remedy to improve resistance power against cold for my 7-month-old baby.

You will need two ingridients to be planted in your house-------------------------- 1. Giloy-------- 2. Holy basil (tulsi) -------------- now what you will do in routine is to put 1 giloy leaf and 10 leafs of tulsi in a 10 litre filtered water stored in a water reservoir overnight and use this water for drinking purposes only in your family. All the family members will be free from frequent infections as this easy formula will slowly develop body immunity-----------------------------

My son is 9 years old. He has a bed wetting problem almost since birth. Otherwise he is fit and healthy. Recently we did the urine culture test but it is negative. We also did sonography and mcu test and both test reports are normal. What shall we do?

Pediatrician, Pune
Don't make him feel bad about his passage of urine, he can strengthen his urinary sphincter by trying to control his urine during day time, avoid drinking of water after 7 pm, make him pass urine before going to bed, reward him for his dry nights.

Lets hope there are no problems in future. For now, I hope you are pumping breastmilk for feeding your baby to be fed in the ICU. That would be the best food and best medicine your baby can get to develop a strong immunity for future.

My little sister is one month short of her 3rd birthday. We stopped feeding her milk from bottle as we came across articles saying it is harmful. Now her diet has reduced a lot and because of that she has become very thin. Also, she is always in a bad mood. Is there something we can do about this?

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Pune
When you keep your child on milk for a long time they do not eat other food. Do not develop liking for other food items. So we recommend parents to keep milk minimum in their child's diet. It just fills your child's stomach so that he does not eat other food. Now try to introduce variety of food items. Add ghee, oil a fruit every day. Use milk to prepare kheer. Or dalia porridge. 1 and half year old child should be able to eat all food items that an adult consumes.

My 2 year old daughter does not eat well. Sometime whole day passes without eating. Only 60-100 ml milk. Please suggest as she is underweight (9 kg. Also she started rubbing her upper n lower teeth. Is it because she has stomach worm?

It is frequently asked questions which I have replied many times. However if baby is active n not suffering from any disease, don't force to eat, leave her at her liberty to eat nutritious diet prepared at home including milk and its products fruits etc whenever n whatever she likes. I hope gradually she shall pick up.

Pulse polio vaccines are safe or not. As many times we have come to know that government medical officers fail to maintain vaccines at 2-8 degree which may make the vaccines ineffective. Will this cause any adverse or side effects to the child?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Bangalore
All vaccines have a few side effects, but not storing the vaccine correctly may make it less effective. It is advisable to give the child injectable polio vaccine which is far superior to the oral vaccine that the government has recommended for the masses.

Breast feeding till 2 years is good for brain growth. If there are no serious issues can continue for some more time.
