With one sex there may not be much chance of pregnancy and she is lactational anovulatory period and that is why mc was just one day. As a breastfeeding mother she need not take any pill. Safe and best is to insert an intrauterine device like iucd (copper t)

Just stick on Exclusive Breast feeding. Even a baby doesnot pass stoll for 7 days on breast milk, no problem. Do not give any laxatives until unless his poor bowel movement affects his activity, wt gain, feeding patrern.

Hello. Take care of your small daughter well and be careful in future! Apply Schwabe's Topi-Cantharis opintment over the area thrice a day, it will help you relieving burning pain and fasten the healing process with much less marks. God bless her!

Hi doc, my 45 days old son is around 4.2 kg and his birth weight is 3.4 kg. Doc told his weight gain is too slow. I am on breastfeeding. He is around 56 cm in height. I am really worried. He is peeing and pooping. He looks quite active and normal. I am really confused. Please suggest whether I need to introduce formula or other supplements for his weight to peek.

Continue breastfeeding, your baby is growing normally & weight gain will be seen in near future. Supplement semisolid/liquid diet at 6 months of age. No need to start any formula feeds.

Hi doctor. Is lactogen safe for new born babies. My baby weight was 4.25 kg while delivery. Now it's 4 kg. My feeding is not sufficient for him it seems. So if it cries in hungry, we give lactogen often. Is it safe or it has side effects?

Babies tend to loose about 10% of their birth weight in 5-7 days which is soon regained. If child is still loosing weight then you may have to supplement the feeds. Though lactogen is safe it's not best food for babies. Best is breast feeding only. Drink plenty of water, eat healthy diet, relax and keep yourself active and mobile. All these things help on increasing milk outflow. And of course breast feed the baby every 2 hrs. Absolute no to bottle feeding. Add on feed should be given with katori spoon.

Hi, exclusive breastfeeding is recommended for 6 months, it increases immunity of child and provides all nutrients. If not able to give breastfeed then formula ffed like nan 1, lactogen 1 can be given. But you should try to feed child as much as possible because this will increase your milk production. Wishing your baby a good health.

If cough is persistent for more than 15 days. He needs to be investigated by a competent PEDIATRICIAN. Please do not give any cough syrup. Instead you can give honey twice a day. It must be kept in mind that most cough are viral in nature thus self limiting and do not require any antibiotics or antitussive. However a child with cough persistent for more than 2 weeks with or without fever need to be examined.

My daughter is 3 year old. She is having cough since last week. We have given her cough syrup but no effect. Kindly suggest what we should give her. She used to cough at nights.

If know fever, no breathing difficulty, respiratory rate is normal, cough may subside within a week, try to give a dust and smoke free environment, healthy diet, plenty of liquids, soups, avoid ac at night, no fur toys, blankets in the bedroom.

A C-reactive protein (CRP) test is a blood test that measures the amount of a protein called C-reactive protein in your blood. C-reactive protein measures general levels of inflammation in your body. High levels of CRP are caused by infections and many long-term diseases. But a CRP test cannot show where the inflammation is located or what is causing it. Other tests are needed to find the cause and location of the inflammation.. baby will need antibiotics and supportive treatment and as he is in NICU , you need not worry

This is a common complaint made by parents. In my opinion it is parents who are at fault. Young kids do not know what is good for them so they continue with natural way of getting nutrition . At the age of 5-6 months mother must start giving liquid,semisolids as weaning food.Failure to do it results in malnutrition anorexia

Breastfeeding releases the prolactin hormones into a mother's system because of which a peaceful and nurturing sensation fills her and she benefits emotionally and physically from it.
