General Physician,
Children tend to vomit if food is forced on them. as part of investigating the cause you need to check his TSH and inform me . 10 Kg is reasonable and make sure he is not anemic

Expired enterolife should not be causing diarrhoea and your kids diarrhoea appears to be unrelated to the same. Most of the diarrhoea respond to who-ors and zinc. However, specific medicines might be needed depending on the cause of diarrhoea. I would advise you to visit your paediatrician.

I heard there are two types of vaccination for babies normal and painless which should we prefer.

I heard there are two types of vaccination for babies normal and painless which should we prefer.
The painless and painful varieties are only for DPT which is part of vaccination at 6, 10 and 14wks. The difference is the reaction they cause both locally and systemically. Painful DPT had more local pain, swelling, redness and also more fever and irritability. All these are much less in painless type. The effectiveness of both is almost the same. However Indian academy of Pediatric advises to give painful variety for 6 10 14wks immunisation.(except in case of severe side effects due to painful type)

Please take her to the doctor for a medical check up just to rule out any health problem. Some tests can be routinely done. It is also important to know if there is any fear or any anxiety due to some some one in the school. Do ask her after assuring her that you will accept everything that she says. Please also discuss with the teacher and principal if there is anything missing or any matter that needs attention. Have patience and be compassionate with your child. With love and caring she would come out of this tricky situation. Please revert after you visit the school and the doctor. You can contact me and take the help of Homeopathy if there is any problem as it is mild and safe.

My baby is 2.5 years old. Still she weighs 10 kgs only. We have tried all methods from giving all kind of buttery foods, protein powder, fruits, milk everything but she is growing very slowly. On weight chart she comes below all parameters. Her height is 85 cm. Please advice.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Relax, don't be too much anxious about health of the child. You should have learned by now, growth of children can not be tailor made. We have no control over it apart from giving him healthy food (not buttery) and inspiring him to play more. His weight is in lower end of normal range and hight is in the range. Enjoy what he is rather than worrying about what he should be. Play with him, love him it's a fun, god's gift.

My daughter has acute DNS. One of her nostril is completely closed due to trauma at the age of 2. She is 10. Her breast buds have started coming. Acc to her early outburst of puberty can I get her surgery done at 15- or 16 year of age. Her nose is also quite big can I get the surgery for shaping her nose also at the same time?

My son is only 11 years old I found he has a problem like depression what should I do.

Psychologist, Delhi
Hello The symptoms of depression are feeling low, helpless, crying, lonely feeling and others. It is essential to be diagnosed by a mental health professional psychiatrist or a clinical psychologist. Try talking to your son to understand him better and then consult a psychiatrist or a psychologist for the diagnosis and treatment. Try to involve him in activities, his hobbies and not allow him to stay alone.

Hi . I have a three month month old baby. I'm giving formula milk for my baby from the 1st month itself. Because From the beginning I don't have much milk secretion. Also I use to give Brest feeding 3 to 4 times a day in between. By last I had cold and light fever so I stopped Brest feeding my baby for 2 days thinking it will also affect my baby. After that my milk secretion has almost stopped. Even my baby is also not sucking from me. Now I'm recovered from the flu but still I didn't get back to my normal secretion. Not even 10 ml of milk is getting secreted. I have tried eating fenugreek garlic lots of water oats meal everything. But nothing has worked out. Ian really stressed because of this. I can't even able to breast feed my baby for 3 months? I am worried. Please help me and advice me. It will be great full for me and my baby. Please.

Milk secretion can not abruptly stop after 2 days abstaining though you had started formula feed 2 months ago and kept on breast feed 3 to 4 times in a day only which had been responsible for gradual decline of milk production. Now as the situation exists, keep him on breast to suck for some time before giving formula feed. I hope milk secretion shall start. 2 days absent can't make the breast dry. And if secretion starts, first give him your feed every time and then formula milk if you think baby is still hungry. Emptying of breast is best way to increase milk secretion.
