Hi Can I give water to my 51/2 months baby? if yes then what should be the quantity given to him?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Bangalore
Milk contains a lot of water. No need to give water till the child starts eating dry food, or passes less urine due to loose motion or vomiting.

Recurrent respiratory tract infections are common after chickenpox,due to reduced immunity. Good nutrition & hygenic practices will reduce such occurences in future.

Yes your baby did not gained the desired weight. Along with breast feeds also give top feeds whenever baby cries. Also give solid foods more frequently and keep trying varieties. Check the weight every week and consult paediatrician regularly and take proper nutritional guidance for the baby.

Hi my daughter doesn't like to eat anything. Need to feed her forcefully and she just vomiting the next moment after having the food. Please suggest me.

General Physician,
Hi my daughter doesn't like to eat anything. Need to feed her forcefully and she just vomiting the next moment after ...
Please tell her weight and do not force feed children and if the activity is good you can relax . Check her blood CBC and TSH. Things to avoid • Do not refuse to give high-energy foods, like ice cream, cakes, biscuits and chocolate, in the hope that your child will eat 'proper' meals and 'healthy' foods. Reason: This is not a good way to get your child to eat new foods, and your child might lose weight if you withhold their 'safe' foods. • Do not try to force your child to eat food. Reason: This will make your child even more anxious at mealtimes, and may cause your child to vomit the food back up. • Leave long gaps between meals to try to make your child more hungry or hide new foods inside foods that your child already likes. Reason: This will make your child less hungry over time, and may lead to weight loss. Some children can very easily detect new tastes and smells, even when hidden in other foods. Your toddler may just stop eating the liked foods. Things that help • Encourage your child to experience different textures through 'messy' play every day. Your toddler may find some textures (like Play-Doh) very difficult, so start with textures that they are happy to touch. This may need to be drier consistencies initially, such as rice or lentils. Gradually progress to more messy/wet substances, allowing your toddler to gain confidence. Have plenty of fun and get messy. If you don't like touching certain textures yourself, or don't feel comfortable allowing your toddler to make a mess, then why not take them to a playgroup in your area? Reason: Many children who are extreme food refusers are very sensitive to touch on the hands and mouth, and so will not even pick up new foods. Messy play helps them to get used to new textures. • Give small frequent meals of foods that your child accepts. Reason: Some children become very anxious at mealtimes and are sometimes very slow eaters. Small frequent meals will help them to take in the calories that they need. • Remember, even children who are extremely faddy eaters usually grow and develop normally, if they are given the foods that they will accept. Reason: It is important to keep your child growing well, and these extreme food refusers do grow as we would expect them to if they have enough of the food that they will eat.

Do no worry. Mostly viral fever to start with is high grade and settles in 3 to 4 days. You can give paracetamol sos. If your child is well looking most fever subside without any antibiotics. If fever is persistent or there are abnormal symptoms like vomiting drowsiness loose motion then consult your pediatrician.

Finger brushes like these are made of soft silicone rubber. They are effective in maintaining oral hygiene of babies between 6 months of age till the first birthday. At first Birthday, change to a 'Baby brush.
Start early. Let your baby grow up cavity-free.

My daughter is 3 and a half months. She was born on Dec 1st,14. Her weight is 5.4. As of her health she is a healthy baby. Her growth is good. She is 60 cm. But she didn't become fat at all. Ppl tell she looks like a 45 days old baby. I see other babies are very fat and healthy by this stage. I only breast feed her. No supliments. What to do to make her fat?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
You should be happy and congratulate yourself for exclusively breast feeding the child.Breast fed children gain appropriate weight. Fatty babies are usually overfed and form a launching pad for obesity in childhood and adult life. Your baby's weight 5.4 kg & length 60 cms at 3.5 month is within normal range.(Refer to IAP Growth charts for girls) Please don't make her fat you will regret in future.Instead of worrying play, talk and laugh in plenty with her. She will be confident secure adult emotionally.

Stop formula milk. Give exclusive breast milk. Do not stop feeding if baby passes stool during feed. Passing stool after or during feed is not abnormal since she is playing well.

Your child may be down with viral fever (may be dengue or chickengunia). Sponge body for 30 minutes if temp is over 102 F. Complete bed rest with plenty of fluids & normal diet is advised. Paracetamol can be given to reduce fever & pain in extremities.

You may give threptin biscuits. But it may not be much helpful to increase wt. Give him home made well cooked in oil or ghee nourishing diet of his choice in addition to milk or milk produts. Don't force him to eat. remedy of mouth ulcer depends on cause of ulcer. Zytee or Orocep gum paint may be tried.

General Physician,
Hello doctor, Please tell me how many pampers can be changed for a 6 month baby in a day?
There is no count of the number of pampers to be changed, it must be changed as soon as it becomes wet. It is better to use cotton cloth to make diaper like covering. You can ask me any further doubts.
