If it's really 7 month of pregnancy then your baby's weight is quite normal for the gestational age. It is only in the last 6 week of pregnancy there is a rapid gain in the baby's weight.

Generally small children will have their legs bent which is the normal phenomenon as the children will grow at about 1 and half to 2 years they will have straightening oftheir legs I think you should not worry about this.

Dear lybrate user nowadays we all have habit to google about the symptoms to know about the problem we are suffering from. But google is not a doctor or psychologist. There are standardized procedure for diagnosis. So relax and don't think too much by putting yourself into different categories. It's important for you to make a study plan or organiser. The plan should have breaks in between so that you won't get mentally tired. It's proven that studying for prolonged hours without taking break doesn't help in learning process. So make a study plan paste it near your study table. Set daily achievable goals for yourself. In the beginning may 2 goals per day. Motivate yourself to achieve those goals on time. Reward yourself for achieving those goals. Try these things. If you still face difficulty then take one on one counseling session. Remember that it will require time to change ones habit it won't be changed in one day or week. It's a process. Take care.

Undescended testis should be corrected anytime after 1st year. Prolonged exposure of testis to a high intra abdominal temperature is harmful.

It seems that your child is very much dependant on you. You can try few steps Leave him on his own at home while keeping an eye from distance. Let him learn to defend himself. Don't promise him any thing for going to school. Once he does not cry that day reward him with toy or chocolate. Convey him that everyone must go to school for fun and activities.

Do not give 2 medicines at same time which are meant for same purpose. Give him only one medicine. ## if you need to give more medicine you can give:- ferrum phosphoricum 6x (4 tablets tds). Try to make a gap of half an hr with anothet medicine. Hope this advice will be sufficient for you.

Benefits of Breastfeeding for Baby & Mother

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics, CRT in Autism

Benefits of Breastfeeding for Baby & Mother

Breastfeeding is best for the baby and its benefits extend well beyond the paradigm of basic nutrition. Breast milk contains all the vital vitamins and nutrients, which a baby needs in the first six months of life. It is fully loaded with disease fighting substances, which protect baby from illness. Many international paediatric organisation recommend exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months and recent research reports have proven that breastfeeding is good for both mother and the baby.

Breastfeeding protects the baby from a long list of illnesses, such as ear infections, lower respiratory illnesses, stomach disorder and meningitis and are less severe when they do happen. Breast milk adapts as the baby grows to meet the changing needs. Breastfeeding builds a strong emotional bond between the mother and the baby and it has long term benefits lasting right into adulthood.

The first milk of the mother contains high concentrations of secretory immunoglobulin A (IgA), which guards against invading germs by forming a protective layer on the mucous membranes in baby's intestines, nose, and throat. Mother's body responds to pathogens (virus and bacteria) that are in her body and makes secretory IgA, which is specific to those pathogens, creating protection for the baby based on to whatever mother is exposed. 

The antibodies in breast milk gives a baby's immune system a boost and also helps children avoid type 1 and type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and inflammatory bowel disease that strike later in life. Babies who were not breastfed run the risk of developing Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

Breastfeeding boosts child's intelligence. Surveys have shown that premature infants with extremely low birth weight who receive breast milk shortly after birth improved their scores of mental development at eighteen months when compared with premature infants who weren't given breast milk. The emotional bonding happening during breastfeeding contributes to some of the brainpower benefits. Breastfeeding lowers the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). It reduces a child's risk of becoming obese as a teen or adult as the breast milk contains less insulin, which stimulates creation of fat. The high content of leptin in the milk regulates appetite and fat.

Breastfeeding triggers the release of the hormone oxytocin that promotes relaxation and nurturing. Oxytocin released while nursing also helps your uterus contract after birth, resulting in less postpartum bleeding. It reduces stress level and the risk of postpartum depression. Research studies show that breastfeeding results in changes in breast tissue and lactation reduces the production of oestrogen, which reduces the risk of breast and ovarian cancer. It also reduces the risk of osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.

I am 24 years old women. My baby age now 6th month now I what food prefer to my baby boy?
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.

Firstly treat his loose motions as it is being 6 days now. Increase intake of water in form of ors, lemon juice, fruit juice, buttermilk. Give over ripped banana, pomegranate juice, curd and rice. These are easy to digest and will give energy also.
