If baby is gaining weight appropriate to his age n passing urine 6 to 8 times in a day sleeping well, it indicates that milk is sufficient for baby. Exclusive breastfeeding maintain appropriate lactation. If you have any queries please contact me privately through Lybrate.

I think your hubby can manage himself by your helping advice. Operation 2 months ago must not be hurdle now to look after baby n yourself. Feed your baby exclusive breast milk on her demand which you shall learn shortly on watching baby's cry gesture. I suppose gas problem shall be resolved. Minor gas discomfort is no problem.

Hello, It's very important to keep repeating the same things again and again to a child if you want him to remember or to make a habit for him! There are few food items which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1. Choline: Good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2. Vitamin B: B vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the B vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin B3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin B9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice. Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin B12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3. Vitamin A: The foods highest in Vitamin A are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4. Zinc: Zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient. Zinc is needed to maintain normal Vitamin A levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Let him play with his peer group outdoor games daily. Any kind of physical activity improves the blood circulation of the whole body. -Get him enough sleep and rest. On average, a child needs between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night and 1&1/2 to 2 hours of sleep during daytime. When a child hasn't got proper rest, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -laughter can improve short-term memory in both kids as well as adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i. E. Sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help to think more deeply.

I have a girl baby who is 40 days old.Usually she is getting severe stomach pain and gas trouble Dr advised me to give her colicaid 2 to 5 drops according to the pain even though sometimes she is normal sometimes she is struggling a lot.Is it advisable to use gripe water for pain or can u give alternative medicine.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
If baby is gaining weight about 500 gms per month & passing clear watery urine, your baby is absolutely fine. Just give him comfort, love & support. Be along with him during distress,i.e.Crying. We can not always stop a crying child, we can't know the cause every time. World over all babies cry for no reason, at some or other times. Colicaid may or may not help. Don't blame yourself for inability to stop cry. Things will settle in matter of few months. That is a part of life, we can't avoid. Being with the child supporting, comforting, showering love during distress is the only way. That is optimum & enough.

YOu sit comfortably and feed with baby's head held up and burp well. Coughing is due to the milk tickling her throat

Crp is a indirect test for infection and inflammation. No need to worry if the baby is feeding well and active. However your pediatrician will examine and tell you what to do. Above value is abnormal. Baby needs follow up with pediatric / neonatal consultant.

My son is 11 years old had white patch since 3 years it has not much increased but it is not curing too please let me know is it curable.

Hello ma’am. White patches need to be treated with phototherapy to achieve repigmentation. In some cases, especially acral vitiligo, repigmentation is possible only after surgery. Vitiligo usually has an unpredictable course and can have multiple relapses and remissions.

She has problem of bed wetting at age of 11 1/2 years .she is premature baby with 1400 gm weight and operated for reverse reflux of kidney at age of 7 years .Is any treatment available for bed wetting?

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician,
Yes there are some medication for bedwetting. But I would concern about her problem want to ask if she started bedwetting at 11.5 years or having since before? Medication for bedwetting is available but before starting you must find cause for bedwetting and councils her for dry night (toilet training) with medication. Medication may be beneficial in this case but some times symptoms may recure after stopping the drugs if primary cause of bedwetting is not solved. In adolescent girl having started bedwetting at 11 years there may be some disease like Urinary tract infection or other and also role out some social or personal (psychological) problem like anxiety, depression or problem in school and other. Consult paediatrician for detail examination and management.
