General Physician,
First of all it is a wrong practice all mothers put their babies to bottle feed instead of giving breast milk (to preserve their beauty of breast!) you check his tsh and cbc and inform privately.

My grand son entered into 5th month, we wish to feed him with nestum or cerelac or parex diet supplement apart from mother milk, amulspray botle feeding as the milk feeding is not sufficient. If permitted, how to prepare the food supplement and how many times may we feed him with qty.

Pediatrician, Pune
Give additional milk to mother she should drink at least a litre of milk daily along with her regular diet, it will increase her milk production, ensure that she gets adequate rest, breast milk is best for baby at least till 1 yr of age, avoid giving tinned foods, home made food is best for baby, can start with rice water, light moong dal.

What is the good food for 2 years old baby.

What is the good food for 2 years old baby.
2 year old baby can have all food which a normal adult eats, like home made roti/ chapatti, sabzi, daal rice, khichadi. You can make it more healthy by adding ghee, use sweeteners like honey/ jaggery/ dates rather than sugar in majority cases. They can have lapsi, sheera, upama, appam, poha, pancakes, dosas made up of mixed daals soaked overnight with added vegetables, eggs, malpohas, uttappas. If they dont like vegetables add it in daal/ khichadi/ dosas/ pancakes/ soups. Give milk once in a day at least, if not plain add bournvita/ horlicks according to their taste. Curd/ paneer is good for them if they dont have any allergy to milk products.

I suppose baby is not having fever and taking feed well and if weight is about 3.75 to 4.0 kg, you need not to worry. There is no need of either ambrodil or antibiotic which are of no use. Vomiting after feed is usually regurgitaion. Burping and right posture is solution. Saline nasal drop is safe and may be effective.

Her stool and urine needs to be kept an eye - if there is any change you notice immediately rush to your local Doctor. Please feed her breast milk at regular intervals daily. Give her Aconite 30 - twice daily 2 pills for next 7 days Continue treatment.

Human beings have a circadian rhythm of sleep. If it's altered happens like this. You must restrict his addiction to video games. Sometimes excessive video watching and sleep deprivation may result in fits.

How to Surgically Treat Cleft Palate

MS - General Surgery, MBBS
General Surgeon, Guwahati
How to Surgically Treat Cleft Palate

Cleft palate or palatoschisis is a common genetic abnormality that leads to a horde of problems and is presently a growing challenge to medicine practitioners. The major developmental stages affected due to this particular irregularity include feeding, speech development, dentition and maxillofacial growth which are rather important to the normal overall developmental pace of an individual. Even though the cleft palate deformity was defined centuries ago, no fixed management algorithm exists for patients suffering from the condition in the present day scenario.

Cleft palate may be successfully fixed using reconstructive surgery. Multiple specialists are involved in the reconstruction surgery including plastic surgeons, otolaryngologists, nutritionists, oromaxillofacial surgeons and speech pathologists. Some hospitals also consider psychological therapy for the patient and the family to help get through the emotional trauma and the issues faced due to developmental backlogs.

The treatment for cleft palate usually begins around 9 to 12 months of age. If left untreated, it may cause major deformities. It takes about some years before the whole procedure is completed although it depends on the type and severity of the deformity.

The process involves the administration of anaesthesia after which the palate repair closes the inner, middle and final layers and at the same time realigning of the palatal muscles in a technique called anintravelarveloplasty is conducted. This ensures that the muscles are adjusted in a normal position which facilitates the best functioning of the palate during feeding, swallowing and speaking. It is possible that the child might require more than one surgery to completely close the palate.

Some of the risks involved during the process include:
1. Abnormal reactions to the medications
2. Bleeding
3. Problems in breathing
4. Need for more surgery
5. Infection

Although complicated and time consuming, cleft palate must be given immediate attention to avoid serious developmental issues. The reconstruction surgery and therapy combined ensures a normal development for the child in the longer run, given the surgery was done at the correct time. The child would be required to remain at the hospital for about 5-7 days. Complete recovery takes a time period of 4 weeks. Keeping the wound of the surgery clean is of the utmost importance and it should not be strained. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized pediatrics and ask a free question.

6 to 7 attacks are very common per year. As they have less immunity. Avoid antibiotics in simple common cold. Not to worry about common cold and cough.
