My baby is 15 months old, he don't like milk. He is not drinking milk even 100 ml daily. So please suggest how we can give him milk, can we add any supplementary powder to get the taste changed. He has only 4 teeth as of now, so what medicine we can give him for getting his complete teeth soon with more problem.

While offering breast feeds, baby's body should be supported and head should be at a level little higher than the rest of the body. This would allow effective breast feeding and at the same time minimise risk of milk entering breathing tubes and lungs and causing cough.

Are there any vaccinations between 3-5 years of age . We got all the earlier ones done.

In the first pregnancy, head decent of baby and labour pains may start late. There is nothing to worry for that. You can wait for 2 more weeks but under the guidance of your obstretician.

Dear lybrate-user, as your son is already six months old, you should start weaning food, like veelac first, cerelac stage-1 in addition to mother's milk and lactogen. Gradually start feeding khichri, smashed food etc.

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.

Please give exclusive breast feeding and stop any other milk if you are giving. Such type of problem usually occurs when you give milk other than breast milk.

Dear Doctor,                       I am the mother of baby girl of one and half month.. We came to know that she is having one hole of 0.53 cm perimembranous and one more hole of 0.29 cm ASD at her age of 25 days.                       Our paediatrician suggested no treatment at this time and she will be kept under observation for 2 years and echocardiography for every 6 months once.  Mostly holes may close by their own.                      Now she is of 3.7kg. Feeding is in normal way and she is active also.            But we are really worried about this condition.  Whether her condition is very severe?  Whether holes close by their own?

This is a common problem in newborn babies, generally all babies have holes before birth which close either at the time of birth or few hours after birth. This is a physiological phenomenon. In some babies this phenomenon gets delayed for may be few days and months. As per your paediatrician its correct to wait and watch, I hope its not a major issue, if it was a major issue your baby would have breathing problems at birth or later. Since baby is doing well you need not worry! just get repeat echo done as per your doctors order. No need to panic!

His weight is a little high, but that is not a big worry. And normally, children learn to stand with support by eleven months and learn to stand and walk without support by 12 to 18 months. I think your friends son is okay, nothing to worry about or panic about.

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.

Only mothers milk gives immunity. It should be used exclusively for 4 to 6 months. If other milk is introduced the mothers milk will reduce, and baby will not have the benefit of maternal antibodies. Baby will get more infection if started on top feeds earlier.
