My daughter is about two years old. Her grand parents are worried about her weight & giving junk food & soft drinks inorder to increase her weight. She weighs 9.5kg. Is it too low.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Junk food and soft drinks will increase body fat, and lead to unhealthy weight gain will be detrimental to her in long run. Give her home diet inspire her to play lot. Her weight is not too low and is on lower side of range. Weight depends on genetic constitution too. Children are like their parents.

My 34 month old baby, was potty trained and was diaper free since she was 27 months. Lately, she refuses to do potty in pot and holds it for 2-3-4 days and ultimately she does it in her pants. I thought it's cause of constipation hard potty and it might be hurting her. I started with prunes, apples, cantaloupe and other fruits. She took whole grain food, daal, curd, veggies and has water regularly. Goes to pee in the pot and says she wants to pee. But potty, until I catch her trying to do potty, like her facial expressions changes, she does not do it in pot. Her stool is not hard nor soft but it's of normal shape and consistency. Please suggest me how I can resolve this problem. Thank you!

Your child probably has developed some fear of potty seat. It could be bcos of constipation and she is more comfortable in passing stool in standing position. Include lots of fibre in her diet sp fruits, vegs, oats etc. Give her lots of water and other fluids like coconut water, lassi lemon water, milk. Encourage her to try passing stool at the same time each morning. For a few days, you sit on a stool in the washroom in front of her when she is passing stool, holding her hand, talking to her, encouraging her, telling her that it's not going to hurt. She shd be ok within a few days. All the best.

Well you are giving weaning food in correct way as far as daily protein requirement is concerned. I'm fine with it but for weight gain you needed carbs. Which you e giving less. Give rice khichdi. Modak. Kheer. Milk products. Sweets. Daal with added jaggery etc would add upon carbs. Along with this make sure liquid diet specially milk should not have been reduced. Yes I do agree weight is bit less for given age. And solutions are as per I mentioned above. Eggs should be full boiled and preferably egg white rather then egg yolk. Regards.

Dear parent can see your concern. But till the age of 5 years get 5--6 episodes of cough and cold and some fever too but usually it's viral so not much treatment is needed give paracetamol and some decongestant and honey with ginger or honey with lemon or tulsi but if fever is more or breathing is fast or difficult immidiately consult the doctor hope this held.

My baby is 6months old. Between how much gap should I feed other semisolid food. For good health and weight gain.

My baby is 6months old. Between how much gap should I feed other semisolid food. For good health and weight gain.
Hi lybrate-user, 6 months is perfect age to introduce semisolid diet. Usually the gap between 2 meals should be minimum 3hours but still it all depends upon child's demand coz some kids may not even eat for a duration of 4hrs after last meal or some may require feeds every 2hrs. But one thing I will strictly advise never force feed your child. Every meal time should be very relaxed so you can see your child growing happily and confident even.

Ideally child should entirely breast fed for the 1st 6 months. However if mothers milk is insufficient and cow's milk or formula feeds is started then. You can try small portion of ripe and mashed banana, chikoo, mango. Pears should be cooked and mashed.

You need to consult a growth specialist. A pediatric endocrinologist is where you need to go. This is not normal at all. Minimum weight 11 kg.

Some amount of non-billions vomiting is ok after feeding, you just have to burp your baby after each feeding.

It could be some infection or blockage of lacrimal duct. Put 2 drops of breast milk in each eye and carfully massage the medial side of eye downwards over the lateral side of nose. Do this twice daily and you can also use ciplox drops 3-4 times a day in both eyes.

Night cough after1am may be a sign of asthma. Cough soon after going to bed may be a sign of post nasal drip. As you have not mentioned the time of onset of cough difficult to tell exactly.

Pediatrician, Pune
Golden yellow coloured loose stools are normal when the baby is on breast feeds, if the baby is gaining weight adequately, passing sufficient amount of urine, don't call it suffering from loose stool, it is ok.
