Hello thanks for the query the weight and head circumference is appropriate for the age. Weight of a baby usually get doubled by 5 months of age. The head circumference of a newborn baby is usually 33-34 cm and there is about 2 cm increase in head circumference during initial 3 months. Thereafter there is increment of about 1 cm per month. So the head circumference of your baby is also within normal limit. Semisolid feed should be started at 6 months of age. If you have any more query please let me know. Regards.

What's Swaran Bindu Prashana

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Ambala

Since ancient times, our ancestors passed their best practices of holistic lifestyle to their next generations. Over a period of time they became a ritual that got integrated into their day to day life. These series of rituals are known as samskaras. They are connected with the major events of life such as pregnancy, childbirth, naming ceremony, education, marriage, etc. These samskaras enables us to live a complete fulfilling physical and spiritual life.
Swarna prashana is one of sixteen samskaras mentioned in ancient texts for paediatrics. It is an unique method to build long lasting health and intellect naturally without leaving any harmful side effects.

Swarna prashana is an unique method of giving swarna bhasma (gold ash) mixed with honey and ghee that is fortified with arka, an herbal extracts like vacha, brahmi, shankupushpi, etc. To children orally.

This process promotes overall growth in a natural way. Due to its broader benefits, it is not only useful for normal children, its much more beneficial for children with special needs such as autism, learning difficulties, attention deficit disorder, hyper activity, delayed milestones, etc.

Swarna prashana is one of sixteen samskaras mentioned in the ancient texts for pediatrics.

Benefits:

Benefits of swarna prashana is elaborated in “kashyapa samhita” that was written before 600 bc.

“Suwarnaprashanam hyetanmedagni balavardhanam ayushyam mangalam punyam vrushyam varnyam grahapaham”- ka. Su. 18/ 4-5

It means the following benefits can be achieved:

  • Medha (intellect)
  • Agni (digestive and metabolic power)
  • Bala (strength)
  • Aayush (gives long life)
  • Mangalam (is auspicious)
  • Punyam (virtuous)
  • Vrushyam (aphrodisiac)
  • Varnya (increases complexion)
  • Grahapaham (eliminates the evil effects of planets) 
  • Vaidya vikas nagi is leading in swaran prashana

My daughter is thin can you ask my some special food for my daughter? She is 4 year old.

MBBS, MD
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
She need 1400calories per day divided in six three hrly interval self feedings. Giving special powder from market will spoil further. Firstly she must eat by her self. This is possible if you cook at home and put the food in front of her. No wonder she may remain hungry. By one to one and half child learn to eat by homself.

I have given my daughter carrots in her food (lunch & dinner). But the next day I found undigested particles of carrot in her stool. She is absolutely fine. The quality of the stool was also good.

It's good that child is sleeping peacefully because it is good for both mother and kid. Good sleep is very important for child's growth. If child is healthy otherwise feeding should be on demand.

Relaxed. Nothing will happen by using it once or twice. Now use normal saline drops when nose is really blocked and causes difficulties in feeding or sleeping.

You have to find the cause by noticing when he cries and inform. Likely a habit disorder or attention seeking and console by fondling and search for the cause.

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated?

White stool or black laces are not known with lactogen or cerelac, so you can continue, but stop cow's milk if you r giving. Start other food too coz lactogen is not enough now. Cerelac should not go for more than 1-2 times a day. Rest of times give home made food.

I am breastfeeding the baby and there was some blood and pus below the nipple. Now I am applying the ointment, but the lumps are getting formed and I have to expel every 1 hr. How to prevent lumps? And can I use nipple shields from next time? As baby is getting teeth, I think because of sharp teeth I am facing this issue.

MBBS, FELLOWSHIP IN PAEDIATRICS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
Babies can cause a little bite and cracked/sore nipples during breast feeding but not lumps. They may be due inadequate emptying of each breast or some hormonal issue which you should get checked. Plus I would also suggest to not your baby from the infected breast with pus. Feed him from second breast.

Merely interpreting the result cannot give a diagnosis and any idea you have to discuss the symptoms which made you do the test and all other details to give a correct opinion. The reports are fairly in normal range.
