My son is just 38 days old. He cries often due to hunger. I am on breastfeeding. Some of ma relatives are telling he is not getting enough milk. Also he s looking so lean. I am feeling guilty that I can't produce enough milk. My nipples are too sore. I am using breast shield to feed him. He latches well on the shield. Please suggest what should be done for increasing the milk flow.

Use nipcare on sore nipples after every feed which you can wipe off with a wet cotton before every feed baby should not be sucking on the nipples, he should be sucking on areola at the rim of the black portion on the breast. To increase the milk flow do the following: take proper diet, adequate water and at least 1l of milk or milk products everyday take proper rest and remain calm and stress free you can take lactonic granules one teaspoon twice a day with milk for 2 weeks and tab perinorm one tab three times a day for one week on demand breast feeding to your baby.

Don't scold her or remind her for her act. Just develop habit to urinate before going to bed. Get her urine checked. If it is normal, no cause of much worry. Avoid to make her conscious. It may be helpful. Else consult pediatrician.

He has been given treatment according stool report which is sufficient to cover infection. 4 or 5 times stool / day is not abnormal if baby is active and gaining wt. I suggest to change his eating habits since motions have started with weaning time as symptoms started 2 months ago. Continue breast feeding and withdraw some of complementary food and thereafter add another one once he starts digesting.

Breastfeeding as much as possible is advisable up to two years. Weaning with home food to be started after six months of age. Plot the height, weight and head circumference on growth chart (WHO and IAP) and see if physical growth is within normal limits. These charts are separate for girls and boys. They are very easy to interpret.

Hi, My 7 year old girl is so attached to us that she sleeps right in the middle of us and always puts us to sleep before she does. No matter what she doesn't want to sleep separately. And you know what. Also is this the right time to talk to her about sex and how much info should be given to her, considering some info could make kids curious and try to know more by experimenting and exploring that is way too unsafe. Please advise. Regards.

Try to avoid speaking or doing much about sex in front of her and also slowly make her to get acquainted to sleep separately as this generation is too inquisitive to learn things easily especially with things like these which we try to hide out from them. Don't worry but make her to learn to sleep separately as she is 7 now.

7 months baby is suffering from blocked nose and severe coughing. Does nebulising with saline water helps? Or steam is a better option. We have both the things at home. Does nebulising pose any long term dependence?

No nebulisation has no dependence...normal saline is alright...but if nebulisation apparatus is not kept clean and sterile then there is risk of transmission of organisms through aerosol therapy....so do not make it a habbit of nebulising frequently...you can use other options

Hi  First: medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise ypu might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If ypu have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise.  You will start  Better as the levels of your hormone normalises.  Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Chronic ITP and fibroid will have to be answered by other specialists. Hope this helps Let me know.  Take care

Often newborns have various skin pigmentation which clear up as they grow older. Skin colour is mostly genetic and can to some extent be brightened by healthy diet, good skin care routine, and sun protection. It is not advisable to use skin brightening agents (chemical or natural) at this age. The newborn skin is sensitive and should only have hypoallergenic baby safe products used. Dermadew/nmf are good baby safe skin care products which will improve quality of skin. Don't worry about skin colour. A healthy skin is a beautiful skin. Enjoy the cuddles with your baby. Hope this helps.

Well your baby might have aspirated either liquor or meconium causing respiratory distress. Most baby recover with symptomatic Treatment. Unfortunately your baby is born with Pierre robin syndrome characterised by micrognathia (small chin) glissoptisis (falling of tongue in oropharynx )and cleft palate. The child needs special care in feeding and maintaining posture while lying down on bed preferably in prone position and be fed in almost sitting position to avoid aspiration through defect. Well with proper feeding and maintaining proper position the baby shall thrive and gain weight. At one year of age after proper evaluation the cleft palate needs to be repaired by maxillofacial surgeon

Atopy is long lasting condition and keep on coming at interval. Permanent cure is difficult Treatment includes avoiding soap and other irritants. Certain creams or ointments also may provide relief from the itching. A dermatologist will create a treatment plan tailored to the patient’s needs. Medicine and other therapies will be prescribed as needed to: Control itching. Reduce skin inflammation (redness and swelling). Clear infection. Loosen and remove scaly lesions. Reduce new lesions from forming.
