Please don't stop/delay vaccination for minor illness. Vaccinate your child as early as possible. No need to stop/delay any vaccines for any minor illness even in future.

The best way to deal with allergies is to avoid the allergens. Any episode like the present one can be dealt with cetirizine or other antiallergic drugs. Warm regards.

My sister delivered a girl child on 6th of September 2016 through vaginal delivery. But the baby did not cry at first but she cried after 5 minutes. She was breastfeeding normal but after some time she choked and had breathing problem. She was kept in NICU for two days and has not taken breast milk. Doctor said that baby did not get sufficient oxygen to brain at first so it may cause complication in future. We are worried. Help.

Iron supplement can cause black colour stool and constipation .Try to give are plenty of water. Eupep probably contains digestive enzymes. Try to avoid this kind of medicines for long term use.

I became a mother newly and I am unable to feed my baby properly because I won't get a lot of milk to feed him.

There r some galactogauges available like shatavary, which you can take to increase the milk production. If the child is still not getting enough milk then you have to give him formula milk.

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.

My Kids Don't Like Milk.- common dialogue by the mothers
Drinking milk isn?t the only way to enjoy its benefits. For example, try making soup and oatmeal or other hot cereals with milk instead of water. Pour milk over cold cereal for breakfast or a snack. Incorporate milk into a fruit smoothie or milkshake. Chocolate milk and cocoa made with milk are also ways to increase the milk in your child?s diet.
Sources of calcium also might include an ounce or two of cheese a cup of calcium-enriched orange juice, or a small carton of yogurt. Your kids can also get calcium from dark green, leafy vegetables like kale or foods such as broccoli, almonds, tortillas, or tofu made with calcium.

Hi lybrate-user yes CVS will definately will help you for diagnosis. But it should be done by skilled person as their is risk of limb defects in baby and risk of abortion too. Their are non invasive tests are also available to detect mutation in baby.

Atopy is long lasting condition and keep on coming at interval. Permanent cure is difficult Treatment includes avoiding soap and other irritants. Certain creams or ointments also may provide relief from the itching. A dermatologist will create a treatment plan tailored to the patient’s needs. Medicine and other therapies will be prescribed as needed to: Control itching. Reduce skin inflammation (redness and swelling). Clear infection. Loosen and remove scaly lesions. Reduce new lesions from forming.

Usually the babies have more warmth on forehead and is normal as the body heat exchange take place through head which has more surface area esp in babies . Nothing to worry

My baby is suffering from Fever, loose motions and vomiting since Friday. I consulted a doctor in Cloudnine but I do not see any improvement in my baby's health. I am giving him crocin DS 240 mg every 6 hrs, but temp remains 100. For loose motions, I gave him Enterogermina and Oflox. Since the effect is not much, doctor advised to stop oflox and start Taxim-O and Zedot 10 mg. For vomiting, Emeset and Lanzol. There is little improvement in vomiting though but not loose motions. Since his temperature is not coming down, he is not even taking in any food. I am trying to give ORS, coconut water and rice Ganji. Its been 3 days and he is still sick like day 1. Please advise.

Medicines take some time to act. Frequent change of medicine may not be useful rather it may be harmful. You have not mentioned nature and number of loose motion. If it is watery without blood and/ or mucous, it is most likrly due to viral infection in which there is no role of Antibiotics. Maintain hydration, give ORS (if not liking ors and prefer water, give him water or liquid of his choice- not sugar rich driks). Continue feeding and follow instruction of pediatrician. More than this advice is beyond the scope due to incmplete information. But i am hopeful that baby will recover.

M&s lybrate-user I understand your concern for your baby. It is very nice that you are still breastfeeding in spite of this. The breast milk medically can be said to be less than normal if weight of child is not increasing as per age & child is passing diluted urine less than 6 times in 24 hours. Pl ensure exclusive breastfeeding day & night &frequent suckling is the most important stimulus to increase milk production. Be confident ,be cheerful& think positively about your child. Best wishes®ard.

5 Ways to prevent Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SID)

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

5 Ways to prevent Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SID)

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SID) refers to the unexplained and sudden death of a seemingly hale and hearty baby. This condition tends to occur when the baby is asleep and that's why it's also known as crib death. Although the reason for the condition is still not known, many experts have attributed the cause of the condition to abnormal development in the parts of the baby's brain that oversees breathing and awakening from sleep. Nonetheless, there are ways that can prevent the problem from occurring and which are:

  • Always place your baby on the back to sleep - Sleeping on the back is the safest position that your baby should be in, whenever he or she sleeps. You shouldn't let your child sleep on the sides as he or she can roll onto the stomach, and may hamper the breathing process. You can place your baby on the stomach when he or she is awake.
  • Place your baby on a firm surface to sleep sans of any objects - It's best to place your baby on a firm mattress to sleep while avoiding thick and feather padding like a thick comforter. At the same time, objects like toys, stuffed animals or pillows should be removed from the crib as they may get in the way of your child's breathing by pressing on his or her face.
  • Make sure your baby doesn't become very hot - For keeping your baby warm during sleep, it's best to opt for sleep clothing or blanket made of light material so that it doesn't make him or her feel very hot. If using a blanket, it should be placed loosely over the baby and one should also remember to not cover the baby's head during sleep.
  • Use a pacifier - Research suggests that the use of the pacifier can reduce a baby's chance of dying from SIDS. This is because the pacifier helps in preventing the baby from rolling over onto his or her stomach during sleep. At the same time, it's also believed that the instrument helps in keeping the baby's tongue positioned in a manner that keeps his or her airways open.
  • Breastfeed your baby - Breastfeeding your baby for a minimum of 6 months can help in preventing the occurrence of SIDS. Several studies have revealed this beneficial aspect of breastfeeding.

My 6 and half month old baby is doing green colored motions frequently. What should I do?

Colour is not an issue. If the stool consistency is loose and more than 3 times in a day you must take care of hydration and continue breastfeeding.
