Have to measure and see the child. Usually it is the just the feeling of parents and by the time they walk, say by one year there will not be any problem. You can ask privately.

Difficult to comment medication on skin related stuff. Without seeing child. Shall not encourage doctors for such medics on online forums. We can guide you here with common concerns. Diet and prevention. Skin is sensitive matter. Hope you understand.

Dear lybrate-user, jesa ki apne bataya he ki apka beta 3-4 oz dudh hi pita he, ye quantity 5 months ke baby k liye kafi kam he itna dudh use ek bar ki feed me pina chahiye. Aap uske cues ko samzne ka prayatna kare jab wo apna mih idhar udhar kare, ya muh se dudh pi rhe ho it tarah ki movement kare, god me betha ho tb agar wo chest ki taraf muh kare to samaziye ki he is hungry and feed him. Khali rone pr dudh pilana baby ko irritate kar dega and uka growth hone me problem aa sakti he.

If you r getting relief after medicine n reappearing after stopping medicine, it appears that medicine might be discontinued before tt is complete for some reason or other. Pls continue tt as per advise of doctor. If tt is stopped after doctor advise, pls take 2nd opinion. It is difficult to advise without examination.

My daughter has thin hair, with moderately heavy volume in middle part of head. Hair are short and are at neck levels. Growth of hair is quite slow. We have tried quite a few homely methods and she is already having protein rich diet. But growth doesn't seem to be increasing. My hair are also thin if hereditary factors could be an issue. Can you please suggest some way to increase her hair growth and volume?

Hi, if you have already introduced liquid diet (like'dal ka paani'chawal ka paani') earlier then you can introduce semi-solid diet like'sooji ka hawla'ragi'khichri' mashed fruits (like apple, banana, papaya) initially later can switch over to oats, veggies, etc.

I hope you are referring to masturbation, though masturbation is not harmful but anything in excess will have its harmful effects, hence avoid ejaculation at this age.

Dear , very good question to answer, all parents are asking such question. Answer is very simple weaning starts at the age of 5 months, if start i. e. Beginning is good and maintained then everything goes well otherwise once baby start walking then she runs ahead and mother runs after baby and then starts ferry that please take this and that, otherwise mother do feed continuously with other food then also baby do not accept then food. Hence take your baby in lap while taking your meal baby will accept whatever you are eating provided baby is not given any other food so take care.

It could be colic and related to feeding practice . You avoid bottle feed and feed from a cup or glass anything other than breast milk . Burp gas properly . Colic aid is natural intestinal tonic for colic

Paracetamol is sufficient to get the fever down in first few days. Chloramphenicol is an old drug for typhoid fever and can have serious side effects so better avoided.

My son is14 years old and still he has problem of bed wetting what should I do for him.

MD - Homeopathy
Pediatrician

You can start with first restriction of any liquid intake 2hrs before bed time. He has to be trained daily by telling him to get up at night as the alarm rings. This will train his brain as alarm techniques really work very well to control bed wetting and can also start with bladder exercises to tone the bladder muscles.

Iron tablet (total of 100 tablet) during pregnancy is definitely needed. Sometimes iron increases the nausea and vomiting tendency of first trimester of pregnancy, so some give that from 2nd trimester.
