If child is taking good breastfeeds and is active, putting on weight, may be you need not do anything. Many children in first few months have sneezing and noisy respiration. This is most of the time related to small windpipe and is misinterpreted as common cold. These children grow with the time and symptoms disappear.

Is your baby delivered after 37 completed weeks or not if yes, then your baby should be more than 2.4 kgs If yes then you can use lactogen powder after your feed. First express milk and check how much ml your getting. Then if your getting 30 ml or more then it wll be sufficient initially .If your getting below 20 ml then give your feed then mix lactogen 1 scoop in 30 ml water n give. Before starting the feed just give me your baby details 1.Weight of the baby at birth and present weight 2.Is your baby delivered after completing 37 weeks or 9 months 3.How many days old is your baby 4.Mode of delivery.

4-5 times motion in a day or a motion in 4-5 days is normal if baby is active and gaining wt normally. Please don't interrupt feeding if he passes stool during feed.

Hi my son age is 2.8, in the mid night he wants soaked rusk in milk, I don't know how to avoid that please give some suggestion to avoid his habit,

From my side I will suggest you that feed your something at 2 hours intervals. In mid night he is asking for this, means his digestion is either faster, or his activity is more, so he needs more of nutrients, which his body is demanding. Soaked Rusk is full of carbohydrates, so you can give him more of chapatis, or rice during meals itself. So it will be sufficient nutrition for him. From your query, I can suggest you this. If still it not cleared, please let me know. Take care. :)

My wife is having 21*19 mm cyst in left ovary. Would she be able to conceive. What should we do?

My wife is having 21*19 mm cyst in left ovary. Would she be able to conceive. What should we do?
Yes. She can conceive. 2 cm cyst is not a big size but we have to do ultrasound to see for the nature and character of cyst, then she will also require some hormonal investigations. After investigations medicine can be given to dissolve the cyst if required. Treatment can be planned after all investigations.

I had my baby boy born prematurely in 32nd week of pregnancy. He was almost 6 weeks early and weighed 1.3 kg at birth. Fructose-1,6-diphosphatase was detected in his lab diagnosis from the sample collected on the 9th day after his birth. Our pediatrician told us this is a sign of "fructose intolerance" though we both as parents don't have this deficiency. Now my baby is 5 months old (corrected age 3.5 months), almost 5.6 kg weight and we will diagnosis him again for the same deficiency after a month. We are keeping our fingers crossed thinking that this deficiency could have occurred due to his premature age & incomplete growth at 32 weeks and may not exists now. So my question: Can "Fructose-1,6-diphosphatase" occur in babies born prematurely due to incomplete growth when it is not hereditary and may disappear as the baby grows over months?

Fructose-1,6-diphosphatase is an enzyme present in healthy persons, as this enzyme is responsible for metabolism of glucose in the body. It not the presence but deficiency that is of concern. What I understood is your child is not having this enzyme. In absence of this enzyme, it is difficult to digest fruits. Nothing to worry now. As he grows up, you can give less quantity of fruits to your child. But give other natural foods like vegetables and pulses.

My grandson aged nine weeks old has not passed stool since ten days. He is breast fead, normal and weighed 5 kgs. He is quite normal active and has no other problems. Please let me know what to do for making him to pass stool.

If he otherwise active there is no danger and breastfed babies may not pass motion for a week or more which is not problem. Ut if you are scared you can out a pediatric Dulcolax suppository in the anus and it will help pass motion. If this is a regular feature it will be advisable to do a thyroid screening by doing TSH test.

Can a nephrotic syndrome child take salt in food? Is it harmful for him? How can nephrotic syndrome be cured?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Hello. A child with nephrotic syndrome should not be given extra salt in diet other than that is added in gould during preparation. That means he should curtail intake of pickles, papad. Once a child has recovered from swelling, normal diet can be resumed. Nephrotic syndrome can be cured by use of steroids under pediatricians guidance.
