Myth - Breast feeding spoils the Mother's figure

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Agra
Not at all! Breasts sag from obesity and lax muscle tone - not because of nursing a baby. To the contrary, the baby's sucking leads to the uterus contracting, which helps restore the belly to its normal position quite quickly. What you really need is a well fitting bra to give you support, with nursing flaps to allow your baby easy access to your breasts.

You can start vaccination schedule from any day, better would be to start one month after BCG vaccination, if the time has passed you can schedule your baby's vaccination any time from a pediatrician.

All About Measles

MD - Dermatology & Aesthetic Medicine, MBBS
Dermatologist, Gurgaon
All About Measles

Measles refer to an infection caused by a virus. It mainly affects the respiratory system and its onset is accompanied by high fever, runny nose, frequent coughing and itchy rashes all over the face. It is extremely contagious and spreads through saliva or even mucus. This infection has several symptoms. Some of them are: 

  1. Persistent coughing: Affecting the respiratory system, the onset of measles can be identified by persistent and a nagging cough, one that refuses to recuperate.
  2. Fever: As discussed above, if you are infected by the measles virus, chances are very high that you will suffer from extremely high fever. It is often accompanied by chills.
  3. Sore throat: The throat forms an important part of the respiratory system and if it is infected, its repercussions can be felt in the throat. You will have extreme difficulty in eating or swallowing food when suffering from measles.
  4. Small white spots develop inside the mouth: Sometimes you may notice outbreak of small white spots in the interior of your mouth. In case you do, do not take it lightly. This is an important symptom of measles and you must consult a doctor immediately. 

Notwithstanding the contagious nature of the infection, there are various treatments available in order to treat this infection. Some of them are: 

  1. Acetaminophen: This is used to relieve one of fever as well as pain in the muscles.
  2. Take rest: Suffering from measles is an extremely uncomfortable situation and taking rest always helps. Your immune system, being infected by a virus is rattled and needs sufficient rest to recuperate. 
  3. Drink lots of water: Nothing can be an alternative to water. Therefore when suffering from measles, drink as much water as you can. Try to drink at least six to seven glasses of water, a day in order to purge your system.

For constipation give high roughage diet like fruits and vegetables, roti. Give more fluids including water. If he is constipated for along time rectal enema once to evacuate the bowels. Then you can use glycerine suppository perrectal daily for 3 days and then as per need. Give syp lactulose 5ml twice a day for about I month till he starts passing normal stools daily. Important to remember is that high roughage adequate diet is most important.

Please suggest a substitute for mother's milk. My wife unable to produce sufficient milk for my son

Please suggest a substitute for mother's milk. My wife unable to produce sufficient milk for my son
Breast milk is best for the baby. Please consider if the milk is not enough or if it is just perceived to be not enough. A baby getting enough milk will sleep from 2-4 hours between feeds, generally passes 5-6 motions if under 2 months and 5-6 times urine per day. You can also get baby weighed to see if growth is adequate. If milk is not truly enough, you can use any of the popular brands of formula like nan pro, similac, enfamil etc.

My son who is 5 years gets lot of burps and has gas. Occasionally complaints of stomach pain. Any home remedy please.

Gas formation may be due to maldigestion of some particular food item. Its best to avoid such identified food items. If not possible them digestive enzymes or simethicone after foods might help.

Hello My son is having diarrhea from past 3 days. He is passing more than 20 stools in a day. Earlier the color was black now it is greenish with mucous. We have consulted a homeopathy doctor and she has prescribed aloes200. Podo 200 and merc cor. For dysentery. Is it the correct medication since we are taking this from 3 days. He had fever also of 103 degree which has now reduced to 98.6. Only the frequency of stools has not reduced. We are confused if we should take him to allopathy for immediate relief or will it heal through homeopathic treatment.

Lybrate-user as you say that your child has improved and only loosemotions are there your child needs only ors and frequent smallfeeds of whatever you give him normally. Do add zinc andmultivitamin drops. You can give him khichri withsome ghee. Give nimbu pani give him curd or lassi made with curd continue brest feed if you are doing so.

The baby has to be evaluated before giving any antibiotics. You can give cold medicine like wikoryl drops. Ask privately with weight of your child for personalised advice.

No issues. If you wash his hands atleast 2 to 3 times a day. 3 months old baby does not come in contact with floor, surfaces or inefcted materials.

Hi doctor, please suggest the zentel suspension dosage for 18 months baby, 5 yr old and 9 yr old. They don't have any problem as such, just the doctor had asked to deworm atleast once a year and I don't remember the dosage. Also my 5 yr old daughter bites her nails, very thin but a active child, kindly sugggest.

Pediatrician, Pune
It is a standard dose for children 10 ml just once across all age groups, talk to your daughter regarding nail biting - can lead to worms in stomach she will understand and may not do it further.
