I am a mother of 3 month old baby. As I had breast mastitis, my was on mostly formula milk. Now am well and want to stop formula milk totally. But the problem is my breast milk supply decreased. What to do to increase it as soon as possible? please help me.

Continue breast feeding till breast is empty or baby is satisfied and keep top milk ready to feed baby if he is still hungery. This is natural and effective way of increasing milk production. Take yourself good nutritious diet.

Hi, welcome to lybrate. There is no need to worry, sometimes babies pass stool in 4 to 5 days. Its normal. Just breastfeed the baby. I hope this has helped you. Wishing your child good health. If you have any more questions, please inform.

To say hse is not healthy and growing you have to give her birth weight and prevent weight. Only then can we assess the issue if any.

My baby is 11mths old. He drinks milk from nipple bottle. When he had motion problems our doctor suggested we stop using the bottle and instead try cup to feed him. We tried this method but he does not drink milk. And later when we introduce nipple bottle he drinks it quickly. How do we stop feeding through nipple bottle? Please advice.

As you have already started with bottle milk and the child is used to bottle feed, its difficult to feed the child normally with spoon. Try to avoid bottle feeding as much as possible. Even if you continue bottle feeding just take care that you maintain proper hygiene by boiling both bottle and nipples atleast once daily. Do not leave the child when child is feeding through bottle.

My son is 4 years old, he have adenoids for the past one year. I'm giving medicines (cold and sometime antibiotics also). Is that safe to give medicines for these many days?

Pediatrician, Pune
Adenoids enlargement are normal in children till 5-7 yes of age if they are not associated with recurrent fever, mouth breathing, snoring sleep disturbance, ear problems they are not of any harm, they reduce in size as the child grows, try to give him a smoke, dust, allergen free environment, plenty of water and fruits

Hi Team, I have twin baby girls, they are 13 months old now and one baby is 9.5 kgs weight and the other is 10.3 kgs. Is it a correct weight growth for them I am worried. I would like to ask if we can give them Threptin biscuits for better weight growth or do I need to prefer any other for them. Do suggest me with food items for them for gaining weight and for brain development.

Weight gain is from increased food intake especially after delivery and lack of exercise as people tend not to do any work after delivery. Due to false belief and elders out dated practices. Check your tsh and send report to me privately.

If your wife is feeding your baby then this could be normal variation. But mothers may conceive second. Time during lactation so get her urine pregnancy test done. If positive then consult gynecologist.

My daughter 8 months old is teething has 2 teeth' s now but is not gaining weight. She was 3. 3 kg at birth and now she is 6kg. Is this normal. What should I do? she is not eating anything lately

Pediatrician, Pune
Her weight is ok for her age, they can be some change in feeding habits, when babies start teething, just a little patience and enough support to the baby is required.

Pediatrician,
It's not necessarily abnormal, unless accompanied by greenish vomiting and distention of abdomen. If child is playful and taking feeds normally, nothing to worry. You may try glycerin suppository.

Start giving him cereal based soup in milk, curd paneer. Gradually increase the quantity. If he does not accept it change it. Try that he eat, drink himself.
