What should I give as a food to my 8 month old son? And what shall I use in his body for this summer. He can't tolerate this summer. He likes to leave in cool temperature.

I saw your query regarding feeds to a baby 8 month old, first of all at 8 months old age, he's just trying to accommodate with a new environment as thermostatic centres in the brain are yet to develop so while feeding them you must concentrate on more and more liquid constitution of feeds than solid. Also try to maintain their hydration to avoid fluid deficit because of overheating. Expecting at this age you must have started weaning already, consider calorie requirement as per age along with hydration of the baby.

How to stop breast feeding completely in a toddler.

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatrician, Delhi
It can be very difficult to stop breast feeding suddenly. You have to be firm and very persuasive. Tell her that she is now a big girl and offer her her a variety of interesting food, snack items specially when she is hungry and keep her diverted from the breast. Basically see that she does not remain hungry. Also, you can have some children come and play at home with her to distract her at feed times, or you can take her out to play. Children also crave for breast for remaining close to mother, feeling secure and safe. Offer her more hugs and cuddles and say how she can drink with a new sipper, how she can use a straw. Make the change over an interesting fun activity. But be firm, and determined and be ready to face a few tears.

You must go for a peripheral blood smear examination & if it confirms nutritional deficiency you can take plenty of green leafy & vegetables like palak & food items like jaggery, dates etc.

Exclussive breast feeding is recomended up to 6 month of age. Weight gain is a parameter to assess sufficiency of feed. If baby weighs >6 kg, that is goodindicater for sufficient milk.

No, not at all. If your child is normal now, he will be normal forever. Very rarely some preterm babies will have developmental problems which can be detected early.

Child 16month jo khata h ulti ho jati h dast bhi hote h. please ki solution btaye..

Child 16month jo khata h ulti ho jati h dast bhi  hote h. please ki solution btaye..
After every bout of loose motion, feed your child a few teaspoons of a drink he enjoys. Some good options include water, coconut water, buttermilk, lassi, barley water, lemonade or nimbu paani and lemonade with mint or nimbu pudina paani. If your baby is breastfeeding, continue to feed him. Breastmilk has fluids and nutrients that improve digestion.You may also want to buy an ORS or Oral Rehydration Solution pack from your local chemist. Give your baby a few sips every hour. This will help him stay hydrated. Make sure you prepare the ORS exactly how it is prescribed on the packet. If your baby is vomiting, wait for 15 to 30 minutes, and then give him a few teaspoons of water. Once that goes down well, give him clear liquids like coconut water or watery rice gruel.
