You can instead give freshly made curd before it turns sour. (within 2 hours of setting for curdling. Milk alone is not he best food, you ca give all home made healthy food.

Feeding tips for baby between 6-12 months of age try variety of foods as by this age increasing the variety the appetite/palatability improves. Add ghee generously if tolerated to increase the calorie value of diet. In compare to protein and carbohydrate calorie value of fat is thrice. Give at least one katori serving at a time of- mashed roti/bread/biscuit mixed in sweetened undiluted milk or mashed roti/rice/bread/dosa mixed with thick dal with added ghee/oil or khichadi with added ghee. Add cooked vegetables in the servings. You can also give dalia/suji ka halwa/kheer prepared in milk or any cereal porridge cooked in milk. You can give mashed boiled potato also. Give banana, papaya, cheeko, mango to meet the vitamin's requirement. Give these servings 3 times per day. Feed the baby in your lap with your hands. Don't force. If needed give small amount and increase the frequency of feeds.

Hi doctor, is it ok for a 15 days old baby to travel by air. We are planning a trip from hyderabad to delhi (approx. 2 hrs of flying time). If yes, then what precautions shall we take?

Dear Doctor, My daughter does not like to eat anything. I have tried baby foods, I have tried home made foods like rice with dal and vegetables etc. But she hates em all. What should I do? We are little worried, though she is enough spontaneous to play and make fun. Should we try Gripe Water or Gripe Mixture? Sometimes her mother forces her to eat and she cries by the time of eating. What should we do? Please Help.

Parents must understand that, every child has mind of it's own. Forcing to eat against their wish is not going to work. It will create some rebellious behavior. Instead eat family meals together and share happy moments. During meals offer her all you want, but let her decide what to eat. And after some days you will see the results. Check your expectations, if they are hyper..

Sir, My 7 year old daughter is suffering from low level of thyroid. Her growth is not normal at this age. Mentally she is good but her physical growth is bad. Her nails also didn't growing from last more than 10 months. Kindly suggest me what to do.

MD - Homeopathy
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Hi, Mr. Lybrate-user, firstly if your daughter is a thyroid patient you should regularly check her tsh levels so we can analyse whether her thyroid status is normal or no if she is on medication. Because you require to adjust the dose of her medicines as per her tsh levels. Regarding diet you should increase her protein diet. Introduce sprouts, paneer, milkshakes, dates, jaggery in her diet. Lastly you also need to give her diet which is rich in calcium like ragi, almonds, milk and milk products. There are also very good yogas for thyroid patients, teach her it will benefit her and you can also start her on homoeopathic medicines which will give wonderful results.

Dear lybrate user, your son might be having some health issues. There can be many reasons for not having solid food. If he is having any difficulty in digesting the food, then he will not be hungry also. Please do not force him to eat. Kindly take him to a doctor. If there is no physical problem, then you might have to look into his emotional needs. Talk to him about himself, school, his friends, his games, hobbies etc. If he is not happy about something, he will be able to share that with you, which ultimately will lift up his mood and make him more active and energetic and then he might start having food on his own. Pursuade him to play physical (not computer games) games of his choice.

Hi, my wife stopped breast feeding our daughter who is 16 months of old now. After 2 days she feels pain in her breast. Also seems like due to production of milk, it is getting harder. Is this a usual symptom? how long this continues? how to get rid of severe pain?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is due to collection of milk let her continue to feed the baby. What waas the reason to stop? pain can be relieved by applying local heat and pressing out milk. It more useful and practical to continue feeding. At this age bay needs semi solid home foods also in addition to milk" breast milk is the best milk for baby"

If you are taking a balanced meal and drinking plenty of water , then you will produce enough milk for your baby. After feeding from both sides , your baby WILL BE FULL . You need to burp him after the feed before you put him down. If he doesn't burp then he may cry or be uncomfortable. That doesn't mean he is hungry. You need to give a gap of about 2 hours or more for the milk to be digested. You don't need any medicine.

There are some medicines. But try making her pee just before going to bed and wake up in between to make her pass urine. Do not give any fluids 2 hours before bedtime.

Children tend to vomit if food is forced on them. as part of investigating the cause you need to check his TSH and inform me . 10 Kg is reasonable and make sure he is not anemic

If the node moves with swallowing it is associated with the thyroid gland. Otherwise you can ignore it as of now.

My Kid is having teeth problem (swallow teeth due to bottle feeding but not know) I have consult the doctor near by they suggested the root canal for 5 yrs old kid is it ok to go for root canal into early age. Bcoz its only a milk teeth.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
I dont think that an RCT is required until and ulness there is some serious nerve damage from where the teeth accidentally came out. The milk teeth are shed from 6 years onwards till about 10 years of age. The permanent teeth appear by 6 years of age. Between the ages of 6 - 9 years the child has some milk teeth as well as some permanent teeth This period is called the mixed dentition period. By about 12 years all the milk teeth should be shed off and replaced by the permanent teeth.

Pediatrician,
Practice "Enlightened selfishness" along with the children.
.
"Enlightened Selfishness" says Aristotle, "Is doing good to others. It is not duty, it is joy,for it increases your own health and happiness" Franklin Benjamin said the same thing in simple words " when you are good to others, you are best to yourself"
Why not do a good deed to other (as a parent) each passing day, so our children learn about Enlightened Selfishness. And what is a good deed? A good deed is one that brings smile of joy to the face of another.
