Dear doctor, my baby (daughter) is 7 months old. She only likes to take her mother's milk. Her mother was having sufficient milk earlier. But now she is not having like before. It seems that she is loosing weight, though her activities are normal and spontaneous. We have tried to give her baby foods like cerelac, lactogen etc. But she hates all these. What should I do? Please suggest. Thanks.

Five food groups namely  cereals (like rice, wheat in any form, oats in any form ), pulses  (like any dal), vegetables, fruits and animal protein  (meat, fish, egg, milk in any form )should be present in adequate amount in the food of your baby. Basic principles of feeding are 1) it should be acceptable I. E. Kids should like eating it. 2) tolerable i.e. After  eating if baby develop abdominal distension,  vomiting, loose stool,  rash that means your baby can't tolerate the product.  3) appropriate consistency I. E. Porridge like with gradual change so that by the age of 2 normal adult foods can be given to the kids.  4) all the food groups should be present in the menu of whole day. Take her weight every month to see for weight gain.

Hi Dr. My baby is now 12 days old. But I am experiencing pain while breast feeding. What should I do?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
This is very common problem while feeding as some part of milk is not expressed from the breasts causing it engorged. If breasts are engorged (red/pink and firm), then baby will not be able to suck milk properly. You may need to start with gentle hand expressing or a breast pump until your baby is able to put nipple comfortably into his or her mouth. Try using warm cloth on your breasts before a feed to help the milk to flow.

You have to give all homemade foods mashed well. Introduce one by one and stop bottle feed and feed from a cup

Foods Which Can Make Your Child Healthy!

Foods Which Can Make Your Child Healthy!

It is often difficult for most of us to make your kids eat healthy food and keeping them away from junk and unhealthy food is a much bigger task. It is always easy for them to finish off a packet of chips than a cup of vegetables or fruits. Read on to know some of the healthiest foods that your kid should be biting into.

  1. Dairy products: These are a great source of proteins, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and other minerals. In addition, yogurt provides good bacteria. Milk and yogurt can also be included into smoothies which will also give them a blend of some fruits. Butter can be used in toasts and sandwiches as these foods are loved by children. You can replace plain milk with milkshakes, they are tastier and the children love them.
  2. Soups: These are another great source of nutrition, be it chicken or vegetables. They can be a good evening snack and not just prevent the evening hunger pangs but also come packed with a good amount of nutrition and hydration.
  3. Fruits: Each fruit contains different ingredients. Pick fresh seasonal fruits and incorporate them into your child’s diet as they hold a good amount of nutrients. Fruits provide a good supply of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and good sugars.
  4. Whole grains: Try a brown bread instead of white, replace refined flour pizza base with atta pizza base and white pasta with wheat pasta. These whole grains provide a lot more fiber and nutrition compared to the refined flours. The idea again is to let the kids eat any of them but on a rotational basis, so that benefits from all foods are derived.
  5. Vegetables: Get creative when getting the kids to eat vegetables and green leafy vegetables. From soups to salads to curries, try to rotate vegetables, and like fruits, use seasonal ones. They also have chlorophyll which helps improve their energy levels and reduce fatigue.
  6. Fish: One of the best sources of protein and omega-3 fatty acids, it helps in brain development and building immunity in children, making them less prone to illnesses.
  7. Nuts: While walnut is a well-known brain food, almonds are amazing for the skin and hair growth. Pecans are a good source of nutrients too. The rich oils in the nuts help fight diseases and are a great source of energy. Substituting the sugar candy with any of the nuts is a great way to indulge them in healthy snacking.
  8. Eggs: Whatever form, boiled, fried, scrambled, let the child indulge in their choice of eggs. A good source of protein which is very essential for hair, skin, and nails, try to squeeze in 4 eggs a week in your child’s diet.

Ensure these things find a way into the kid’s plate. In addition, some junk or fried stuff is always allowed!

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello, Simplest way of generating more breast milk is physical contact with baby as much as possible & also encouraging your baby to latch on to & suck nipples as much as possible (even if there is NO breast milk). Another trick is gently massaging your breasts & expressing milk droplets by gently squeezing breasts. Milk production in women is dependent on hormone oxytocin (or hormone of mothers love) & Oxytocin secretion (which in turn will help breast milk production) is dependent upon cuddling, fondling, physically touching your baby & baby sucking nipples (which activates milk secreation reflex acrc in your body) All the Best.

Warm saline gargle, lukewarm water to drink and saline nasal drops to instill in each nostrils, if nostrils are block, are safest. Usually cold passes away in 4-6 days.

After 1 year you can introduce nuts. Instead of giving nuts you can give almond milk or coconut milk.
