I have a daughter who is 8 month, 1 week old. My baby has not started teething yet. At present, I have only included brown rice kheer, rawa kheer, dal rice, chikoo and cerelac in her diet. I want to introduce her to new food stuff and want to know what else I can possibly include which will be more nutritious. 1. Are babies also suppose to have a breakfast, lunch, dinner pattern like adults? If yes, then what should be given during these times? 2. What should be the time gap between the three meals? 3. Should we give babies some snacks between the three meals? If yes, then what needs to be given? 4. Can I start her on chicken soup or mutton soup or should I give only vegetable soups for now? 5. If possible could I get a baby growth chart from you which can help me track her growth?

For 8 months old babies require meals every 3-4 hrs once. You can continue breast feeding along with these. You can give chicken. Or mutton or veg soup. But don't give pieces yet. Egg yellow can be added. Ragi. Dal. Rice. Wheat all in thick soups type. Or smashed. Teething for usually starts 8 months-1 yr. 2 months. Whenever the child cries for food you can feed it. Need not wait for 3 hrs to be complete. Every time a bowl of meal is required. Don't force to much neither let to loose.

I have pain in all over my body especially in hands legs n back bone. I feel also weak after delivery. My baby is now one year old and the important thing I feed her. So please tell me what will be better to improve my health and reduce pain?

You may feel pain due to calcium deficiency due to feeding. Add ragi based food in your diet which is rich in calcium. Take iron, calcium and vitamin supplement as per your lady doctor advice. Drink plenty of water. You will feel better. Best of luck.

Avoid junk, spicy food, meals at odd hours. Take 8-10 glass of water daily. Regular excercise (minimum 40 minutes) daily. He does not need any medication, just lifestyle modification will do wonders.

Probably he is having asd or vsd. Repeat echocardiography after 6 months. Most probably hole will be closed by 5-6 yrs of age. Just confirm with your echocardiography report.

My baby is 15 days old, it was c sec delivery. My problem is my milk production is low I'm already taking lactare and perinorm from last 5 days but still it's not improved so much. I'm depressed please help.

M.D PEADIATRICS, MBBS
Pediatrician, Pune
Hello, if your baby is satisfied after every feed, passes stool every day & passes urine 5-6 times a day, gaining weight, then stop worrying. Milk flows wen baby sucks at breast. Anxiety & worry will hamper milk secretion. Have healthy diet comprising lots of seasonal fruits & vegetables, with atleast 1 glass of milk every day. Enjoy your motherhood.

CONTROL OF ASTHMA
*******************************
Most uncontrolled asthmatics think they are controlled

Two thirds of patients with uncontrolled asthma think that their disease is well under control. Asthmatics on proper medicines can not only live a normal life but also reduce their future complications.

Uncontrolled asthmatics invariably end up with complications related to right heart due to persistent lack of oxygenation in the blood.

Dr Eric van Ganse, of University of Lyon, France, in a study published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, examined 1,048 subjects with inadequate asthma control. When asked how they would rate their asthma control over the past 14 days, over 69 percent considered themselves to be completely or well controlled. Failure to perceive inadequate asthma control was more likely to be found in patients between the ages of 41 and 50 years.

The reasons are:
Most asthmatics fail to perceive their level of disease control and with an uncontrolled state they often feel that their asthma is under control.
In severe asthma, low blood oxygen levels might impair a person’s ability to assess their own breathing difficulty.
The notion of asthma control seems poorly understood by asthmatic patients.
Mild to moderate asthma limits the activities of a person and over a period of time they take that as their normal limits.

Hello. Breast feeding is the best feeding for the baby. All baby usually demand feed after around 2 hrs so nothing wrong with the baby. Pls continue breast feeding even at night. Don't start top feeding just because you r tited. Give top feeding only when the baby is hungry even after bf. Resta you can discuss with lactation counsellor.

Isolated speech delay is common on some children. You can wait for some more time. You have to rule out hearing defect. Show to an audiologist.

If he is thin and not putting on weight you need to make some variation in his diet. Increase protien intake in the form of sprouts, boiled moong chana, muesli. Try and give him milkshakes daily, dates, jaggery, paneer in a balanced form.

Have you done eeg test then send the report to me. Ulcers during fever are due to virus that caused fever.(exanthematous fever). If eeg is normal why valparin was given at all for simple febrile seizure? I do not understand.

Infants 'unable to use toy building blocks' due to iPod addiction
The Association of Teachers and Lecturers warn that rising numbers of children are unable to perform simple tasks such as using building blocks because of overexposure to iPod and smart phones
Rising numbers of infants lack the motor skills needed to play with building blocks because of an “addiction” to tablet computers and smartphones, according to teachers.
Many children aged just three or four can “swipe a screen” but have little or no dexterity in their fingers after spending hours glued to iPads, it was claimed.
Members of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers also warned how some older children were unable to complete traditional pen and paper exams because their memory had been eroded by overexposure to screen-based technology.
They called on parents to crackdown on tablet computer use and even turn off wi-fi at night to address the problem.

If your kid is only speaking bisyllables at this age then your kid requires a full assessment including his birth details, development assessment and neurological examination. Child also requires a hearing evaluation. At this age kids usualy make 2 or 3 word sentences and know 200 words with meaning. Plan a visit to a pediatrician or a pediatric neurologist if available.

She is apparently alright. Weight is not the criteria for health. Obesity in children is grave health hazard. If she is active, she is healthy. You need regular advice on child rearing. And you may do a test for her, ask me privately.

Importance on Breast Feeding
As we are entering the era of modernization many women are avoiding breastfeeding in false notion that it disrupts their image but one thing I wanna to tell you is that breast cancer and uterus cancer can be reduced by breast feeding and it helps to loose fat. For kids it protects against cold and diarrhea thus reducing neonatal death. So join hands in reducing neonatal deaths and improving health standards.
