My son's age is 5. He has dust allergy normally he starts to cough a lot but in india doctor used to give Allegra and it used to work. Last 5 months back shifted to London. For the last 15 days onwards, he is constantly coughing but very less during the night time but the coughing increases after having any food or milk. The doctors are saying the chest is clear and has given ventilin evohaler.

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
As the chest is clear and ventilin evohaler is not showing benifit, you can try allegra surup again. As the cough is after feed, every care should be taken that child is not aspirating during feed, which can occur if feed taken in hurry or in faulty posture.

If mother milk is not enough for baby feeding then what amount of lactogen or nan pro milk should be given to baby?

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH)

If mother milk is not enough for baby feeding then what amount of lactogen or nan pro milk should be given to baby?
Most of the time the mother will have adequate milk for her baby Till the age of 6 to 7 months. But if the mother feels that she is not having proper milk you should actually keep the weight chart of your child in the child. If gaining proper weight per month then you should not worry but if the child is not gaining proper weight you should start with top milk in the form of lactogen 1 or 2 according to the age of the baby you can also start with Nan 1. Mix 1 spoon which is available with the Powder in the packet with 30 ml of boiled and clean water make the feed and give your baby as much as possible sometimes a bigger baby more than 3 months can take 100 to 150 ml at a time so that calculate that much amount and feed your baby with the top milk when the baby will be started with the feed baby herself is stop feeding this is a signal for the mother to stop feeding and you should not worry for simple things.

Breastfeeding - Its Benefits for both Mother and Baby

Breastfeeding - Its Benefits for both Mother and Baby

Being a mother is the greatest gift to womankind. With the most amazing feeling of being a mother, comes big challenges and responsibilities. The first and foremost being, keeping the baby safe and healthy. Providing babies their best start begins with breastfeeding. Doctors around the world recommend exclusive breastfeeding to begin within the first hour of a baby’s life and continue until six months.

A mother’s milk has no substitute. It is packed with amazing nutritional benefits, the absence of which can lead children at risk of malnutrition and various diseases. Breast milk is often being termed as complete food with added antibodies, enzymes, hormones and fatty acids extremely vital for a delicate immune system of an infant. Babies build their immunity in the first few years of their life and breast milk is critical to developing immunity.

UNICEF working on child’s rights and well-being world over promotes breastfeeding schemes across many countries.

According to UNICEF reports, a non-breast fed child is 14 times likely to die within first six months than an exclusively breastfed child. An estimated 8,20,000 children under the age of five could be saved each year with increased breastfeeding. However, Only 38% of infants globally are breastfed. Looking at India’s state, Malnutrition continues to be one of the greatest challenges. One cost effective, safe and smart intervention to curb malnutrition and decrease infant mortality is breastfeeding.

Let’s now look at the benefits of breast milk for infants and mothers:

  • Breast milk is found to reduce the risk of respiratory tract infections, diarrhea, asthma, food allergies, leukemia, diabetes and celiac disease.
  • Psychologists have long established the positive effects of mother’s touch in the emotional development of babies. In addition to this, breastfeed has positive effects on child’s cognitive development.
  • Breastfeeding has amazing benefits for mothers. It is found to aid weight loss post pregnancy. It promotes better uterus shrinkage and delays menstruation. Lactating mothers naturally avoid pregnancy till they breastfeed. It reduces the risk of breast cancer, cardiovascular disease and rheumatoid arthritis later in life.
  • Considering the benefits of this super natural milk, many countries have now adopted an international code of marketing of breast-milk substitutes. The code promotes breastfeeding and restricts marketing of infant formula milk. India along with many other countries signed it.

India has also begun with a baby friendly hospital initiative where hospitals educate new mothers regarding breast feeding and strictly discourage infant formulas wherever possible. The myth of feeding newborn babies with honey, water, sugar does more harm than good. Thus, it is vital to exclusively breastfeed the baby at least for six months before introducing other foods. 

Ensure your child’s right to a healthy life through breastfeeding! If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a pediatrician.

I will suggest you to press your nipples and breast for few seconds so that there is continuity maintained otherwise there is a chance for an abscess to develop.

Hello doctor, my baby boy is 16 months of age and his weight is 8.9 kgs (still takes mother feed no other milk at all). His birth weight was 2.4 kgs. We are giving him vitamin d3 (arbivit d3 and earlier we also gave him d-sol and other few such medicines as prescribed by our doctor) drops (1ml/day). His vitamin d3 drops have not been regular means we have been able to give him these drops 5 days in every 7 days. Doctor had also advised him iron drops and zincovite which he did not take regularly. Is this a serious problem? our main problem with him is that that he does not eat food. We have tried lot of home made items which our doctor and friends have advised but he does not want to eat food at all. We have to do 100 of tricks and games (which is not possible at each and every diet and especially if we are out of home) in his each diet to distract him so that he can eat some portion of the food at least. Also sometime we are not successful in making him eat even after doing all this. This has been an issue since last 5-6 months but this problem has increased many fold from last 1.5 months since he was admitted to hospital due to excessive vomiting and loose motions. He has also developed allergy with lactose which is another issue. Please advise what should we do so that he starts eating food. We try 3-4 times in a day but he takes even half of that. He does not even want to open his mouth as seen as he sees the food and starts crying and shouting. Please advise.

A 9 month baby is suffering from enlargement of liver, what would be it's treatment?

A 9 month baby is suffering from enlargement of liver, what would be it's treatment?
Hi lybrate-user! You need to first check your baby with a Physician and consult with other famous physician in town and verify various treatment options. Treatment varies, but before the situation worsens it would be better to undergo treatment for the same. You can give carrot to manage liver function after cooking and smashing it. Anyway as soon as possible to undergo treatment for the same. You can even try giving homeopathy treatment or ayureduce treatment, but treatment should be given from a Professional. Take care of your child. Let God bless your child. With regards, Psy. MSV.

I'm a 34 years old mother of 2 girls, and a 14 years old son. My son has always been a loving, caring, well behaved child. Only problem that we have had is the first years and a half of middle school as he was focused on being cool. He's grades began to slip for a short period. Recently I found out that he gently rubbed my 16 years old sisters butt, and tried to slide his hand down her panties while she was asleep, one night while she and my mom came for a visit. My little sis slept in his bed, and he slept on floor beside the bed. He got as far as his knuckles when he pulled his had away. He says he stopped he felt guilty" Gross and disgusted" were the words he used. It truly flabbergasted me that he did this. I didn't believe it when I was told he had done this. He has always been a caring child. A kid that truly cared about other's feelings. My question is. Could this be normal exploration even though he chose to do this to a sleeping young lady, or could this be something that I should worry about as I have a 12 years old daughter, and a 3 year old daughter that doesn't speak well yet? I love my son and I'm very worried about this. Does he need counseling?

BHMS, MD - Homoeopathy

See as far as age of your son is considered, these are some normal sexual explorations, but yes off course in a wrong way, your child needs counselling, but by you only. See, people in india do not want to talk about sex, but sex education in teenage is very much necessary to develop the good in your child. At this age teenagers are eager about the sexual changes taking place in their bodies and also of opposite sex, to fulfil their eagerness they indulge in wrong activities. If this time they are provided with good information about their eagerness from their parents itself, like friends, so they will develop into more mature male, and do whatever is correct. So, you, being a supreme power of the house, you can take charge of the task, instead thrashing you son, thrashing leads to separation and counseling leads to more friendship.
