Hello I won't get worried for mild abnormal sound in heart if the echo is normal. Mild abnormal sound (murmur) can be there due to increased flow across valve in case of fever, anemia in the absence of cardiac abnormality. Similarly transient decrease in heart rate is also normal if there are no associated symptoms. So you need not to worry if baby is active, playful and there is no breathing problem. Regards.

My baby 19 month & his weight only 8.2 kg? how should I will increase his weight?
We consider a good weight gain if weight is double the birth weight at 5 months, triple at 1 year and 4 times at 2 yrs of age. At his age, you should give 2 milk feeds and 4 solid meals, stop breast feeds.

Can we feed grape water for new born baby (20 days) old baby. Some times he is not comfortable to sleep.

Seriously, You must be joking! You do not give any thing to a 20 day old except breast milk. Even Plain water is not allowed. By and large, the milk supply to the mother increases as the babies grow and there is no need for top feeds too. Please do not consider giving any thing other than breast milk to the baby. The baby may be uncomfortable for various other reasons, which should be discussed with your paediatrician.

The baby is not turning, nor she is moving on her stomach, nor on her knees. She sits well, straight. Doctor suspects of hypotonia? What is the cure.

Sorry, your information is vague and some inconsistent. If baby can sit well, she must on also turn (rolling). As she can sit well, she may not be suffering from hypotonia. It is necessary to know more information to arrive some conclusion.

Give him paracetamol 175 mg 6 to 8 hourly. If fever is due to simple viral infection, it should be cured in 4 to 6 days. Even then get him checked properly by pediatrician to assess cause of fever n tt accordingly.

the girl of 10 years should weigh 28 kg with height 137cm as per standards. Obviously she is undernourished for long period,resulting in immunosuppression( reduced resistance to diseases) making her prone to infections. Dietary readjustment & correction of deficiencies will result in better health.This may take time but essential for good health.

In this age this is normal procedure. Do not worry. If he passes stool 15 to 20 times then you must see a child specialist.

Take curry leaves soup daily twice this will helps you keep typhoid away. Start taking more fruits and coconut milk which helps to maintain alkalinity in your body and also reduces typhoid ulcers.
