For running nose put saline nasal drops frequently into each nostril. Cough for such a long duration might need evaluation.

I suggest you put him in a play group and see the difference over the next 3 months. I have seen plenty of children significantly improving in verbal communication on interaction with other kids.

Check correct position while feeding. Head of babybaby should be kept higher than rest of body. If still the vomiting is there after each feed child needs to be started onon antiemetic and antifeflux medicine and also rule out gastroesophageal reflux.

u should plan to return to your pre-pregnancy weight by 6 to 9 months after delivery. Most women lose half of their baby weight by 6 weeks after childbirth (postpartum). The rest usually comes off over the next several months. eat to loose weight at every 4 hour interval. DO NOT skip meals. ...Eat 5 to 6 small meals a day with healthy snacks in between (rather than 3 larger meals). Eat breakfast. ... Slow down. ... Choose nonfat milk and dairy products. .. .When you reach for a snack, choose fruits and vegetables. .. .Drink 8 or 9 cups of liquids a day. breast feeding reduces moms weight

No role of any appetite stimulants. His weight is appropriate for his age. So do not worry if child does not eat if he is alert active playful and responsive. Cough and cold is very common in this age. Home made remedies like Tulsi ka karha honey are enough in most cases unless your child is having high grade fever with rapid respiration persistent vomiting then consult pediatrician. For constipation avoid milk and milk products noodes maida give plenty of vegetables fruits juice. Best wishes Arun shah Muzaffarpur.

Dear lybrate user, immediately conduct a liver function test of your blood. Revert back with the results. In the meantime you can take homoeopathic colchicum 30, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach.

Normal diet of small child is. From birth to 5-6 months-- breast feed only 3-4 hrly interval six times a day. Their after start reducing the frequency of breast feed and start with soup like feeds two times at six months, increase to four times at one year. Breast at one year is given only two times for 10-20 minutes only. Next step in development is self feeding. By 9 months child start picking up things lying on floor and put it in mouth. That he should be taught self feeding. This period runs upto 18 months. Your child has to pass all these stages. First find out what type s of food he likes of course at home. Give these food six times to be eaten by himself. It is high time child learn to eat by themselves. Otherwise they become timid children.

What should you suggest in diet for a ten year old son? Can it'll be safe to have coffee. For him? How many glasses of milk he should have?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Diet should be two major meals and two short snacks in a day. Milk has no major role. Each majr meal should have around thousand calories with two roti's 1 bowl rice daal. 1 spoon ghee and fruits. Shirt snacks should be rice potato or wheat flour based with a cup of fruit juice. Milk may be added to reduce appetite if the kid is eating heavily and is obese.

I'm breastfeeding for two years. How can I increase supply. Is there way to enlarge my breast.

Advanced Aesthetics, M.Ch - Plastic Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Indore
Breast milk is not dependent on its size alone. Breast Enlargement is one of the most frequently performed surgeries and we are the pioneers in central India since last 30 years. To the best of our knowledge no medicines or creams work to increase the breast Size. Enlargement can be done with fat grafting or silicone breast implants. Breast enlargement. Silicone implants are the gold standard world over, very short operative procedure with very gratifying results. The creams and capsules have never actually worked, but since every one is not immediately ready for surgery so the companies use these gimmicks to market their products. If there is lack of substance then augmentation with a silicone implant is the best choice and a gold standard procedure. It is a day care procedure and you are discharge in a very short time from the hospital and it brings about an instant change in breast size and self esteem. Almost 10 crore implants are in use and so it is extremely safe. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. There is no medication to give the results. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. NO Creams or Pills actually work except psychologically. Surgery is the only answer. The surgery is almost painless because there are enough medications to keep the pain under control. There is no natural way to increase Breast size, except that after child birth the size may become and remain bigger.

Hello. Breast milk contains very good amount of water to fulfill thirst of baby. Nothing other than breast milk needs to be given not also water. Water may be source of infection, it is easily contaminated. On other hand breast milk is free from risk of contamination.
