With 16 kg at 3 yours of age,immunity is not the issue. Most likely recurrent infection caused by bottle feeding,thumb sucking,candies is the culprit. Proper hygeine care will reduce sufferings.

You shall meet physiotherapy specialist to start pelvic muscle strengthening exercises. Swimming is one of the best way to do it. Well rather then muscles only. Rest of the factors play more important role in intercourse after child birth. Like lack of foreplay. Paying less attention to the partner due to hectic schedules of females behind child. Etc. You need to understand that pleasure stays in between two ears, not only between the legs. So if you will concentrate on those happiness. I'm sure intercourse would give more pleasure to both of you.

My daughter is 7 months old and not taking anything except her mother's milk. What should I do. Whenever we try to put anything in her mouth she just spits it out.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Persist with the efforts, children take variable time to like the food. Eat along with the child and let him see how you eat the same food. Parents are role model for children. Be patient, don't loose heart, so long as he is active and putting on weight.

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.

Breastfeeding - 5 Benefits of It!

Breastfeeding - 5 Benefits of It!

A mother’s milk is said to be the most nutritious food for a new born baby. It contains the perfect balance of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals needed for your baby and changes to keep up with your baby’s growing needs. However, the benefits of breastfeeding extend way beyond nutritional value. Breastfeeding is beneficial for both you and your baby. Ideally, a baby should be breastfed for at least the first six months.

Here are 5 major benefits of breastfeeding.

  1. Stronger immunity: Mother’s milk is rich in antibodies and a number of unique compounds that help the newborn child’s body fight bacterial and viral infections. No other form of baby food is as rich in these antibodies. Babies who have been breastfed have a lower risk of suffering from ailments such as ear infection, stomach upsets and respiratory problems. The first milk expressed by a woman’s breasts after giving birth is known as colostrums. This milk coats the baby’s digestive system and prevents the growth of harmful bacteria.
  2. Fewer allergies: Breast milk is easier to digest than formula or cow’s milk. This protects the gastrointestinal passages from inflammation and prevents undigested food from triggering allergic reactions. Being breastfed can also reduce the number of allergies a child may suffer from in their later years.
  3. Healthy body weight: Breastfeeding makes a child less likely to suffer from obesity in their later childhood and adult years. This is because breast milk contains less insulin and more hormones as compared to formula. This helps regulate fat absorption. On an average, babied fed on formula put on weight quickly and are more likely to overeat in their later years.
  4. Stronger bones: Breastfeeding is beneficial for both the child and the mother. When a woman is breastfeeding her child, her body’s ability to absorb calcium increases. This helps increase bone density, especially as pregnancy can make bones weak.
  5. Builds a strong mother-child bond: After 9 months of carrying a child to term, giving birth may lead to post partum depression and a mother may feel the connection between her and the child severed. Breastfeeding helps nurture this connection and provides emotional relief to both the mother and child. For the mother, this experience releases hormones that reduce stress and relax the body. For the baby, close physical contact is very important and this process provides the perfect opportunity to do so. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Hi, in the first few weeks, you may notice that your baby's genitals are swollen and red, or that she has a clear, white, or slightly bloody discharge from her vagina. This is normal. It happens because she was exposed to your hormones when she was in your womb (uterus). If you want, you can consult a paediatrician to know more about it.

My daughter is 4 years old and weighs only 15 kgs. She does not have any ailments and is very active. But her weight seems below normal and she looks skinny. She eats normally although with a few tantrums and loves regular fruits and vegetables. Is there any way by which her weight can improve?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Bangalore
If she is active she is well, and active children usually do not put on extra weight. Give her food containing proteins like milk products and dhal and pulses.

After vaccination, fever and mild illness lasts only for few hours. Not taking feed is due to so many reasons like: heat waves, fever, chest infection, urine infection and all. Keep years baby cool if not feeding consistently better contact child specialist.
