My Kids Don't Like Milk.- common dialogue by the mothers
Drinking milk isn?t the only way to enjoy its benefits. For example, try making soup and oatmeal or other hot cereals with milk instead of water. Pour milk over cold cereal for breakfast or a snack. Incorporate milk into a fruit smoothie or milkshake. Chocolate milk and cocoa made with milk are also ways to increase the milk in your child?s diet.
Sources of calcium also might include an ounce or two of cheese a cup of calcium-enriched orange juice, or a small carton of yogurt. Your kids can also get calcium from dark green, leafy vegetables like kale or foods such as broccoli, almonds, tortillas, or tofu made with calcium.

Hello, Baby cry when being put down on bed, being separated from her caregiver makes her feel that some thing is  different going on depriving her the affection of her mother. ▪how can she really ignore that she is being put down from the lap of her mother as she misses the softness of nature & body of her mother •smell of the body •breathing chest of her mother •the affectionate motherly touch as well. •here begins the  feeling of insecurity for the baby. ●Baby, misses  the temperature of the body of her mother waking her up while being put down. Henceforth, Baby should be wrapped up in a blanket while putting her down keeping her body warm. ●baby is not accustomed to pee or poop what she has to learn in due course of time so it's a natural phenomenon for an infants to cry while passing urine or stool. Your feedback matters ,please. The care.

I suggest you to stop or avoid formula milk as it can not replace the breast milk in its nutritional value. Try to breast feed your baby completely atleast for 6 months of age and later shift to formula feeds. Stress and other factors contribute to lesser production of breast milk so avoid stress and let your baby suckle to your breast as much as possible as it will stimulate milk production. Consult your gynaecologist if possible so that she can prescribe you some medication to increase your milk production.

If you are interested to give top milk, start with dairy milk n continue breastfeeding. Weaning time is also near by. Boiling is not related to time but to well boiling.

Can I give junior horlics to my baby, who is one year old? What kinds of food he should have in this age?

Can I give junior horlics to my baby, who is one year old? What kinds of food he should have in this age?
These are of no benefit other than changing the taste. Give whatever you eat in a form which he can eat easily. Vegetables, pulses, rice, egg etc. Soups good. Juices do not benefit much. Reduce milk.

Vomiting is an association for most sick children during fever. As today is the first day of fever do not panic. Temp is mild. Give plenty of fluids and ors during vomiting give cold sips not hot liquid to controle vomiting watch the baby's urination pattern if normal or different from before for possible urinary infection and contact Dr. Later as of now give fluids keep cool with low external temprature. You may help with emiset drops. 12 drops thrice daily before food for next 2 days. Thanks.

My son is of 14 years old he has allergy problem I nebulize him two times in this harvesting season is it safe or not to nebulize everyday ?

Pediatrician, Pune
Nebulizing at 14 years of age is not a right idea, he needs to be evaluated for his severity, by local pediatrician, rotacaps / inhalers may be advised, allergens need to be avoided

Depends on genetic factors as well. So if he is doing good not falling ill it's fine. But still increase carb in diet like dates, kheer, sheera, yoghurt, modak, laddu, etc and protein like soya, rajma, sprouts, peanut butter, etc.

When to start food for my 6months daughter and should I feed her other than milk?

DM - Neonatology
Pediatrician, Delhi
When to start food for my 6months daughter and should I feed her other than milk?
At the end of 6 months. Start weaning first with soft semisolid foods like suji ka halwa, bananas, mashed potatoes, slowly in a few weeks add more solid. At the end of 1 year, your child should take 3 big katories of meals, and 2-3 snacks in between. You can also start top milk (cow's milk) over and above breast feeds. Breast feeding should be continued till 2 years.
