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.

It is not very abnormal to pass stool after taking any thing orally. your son is 2 years and 4 months old. It may be possible he drinks liquid at a time more than his requirement. Restrict his liquid if he is not dehydrated, otherwise consult pediatrician.

General Physician,
My baby is having frequent cough and cold she is 2 and half month old. What to do? Please advise.
Please be more detailed in descrbing symptoms like when the cough is more (night or day) any phlegm while coughing and if there is fever. In pediatrics weight is must for prescribing drug dosage. However if there is no fever, it can be allergic cough and you try levocet-m syrup 2.5 ml once a day and tell me, personally.

Don't apply powder and don't use wipes. Clean it with water, keep the area clean and dry. Avoid milk to soil the area. Calamine lotion will help in relieving itch.

I think what he has is umbilical hernia. Can you tell how big it is and if possible send a photo. If small, it should go as muscles become stronger. Or else surgical closure is the treatment.

Probably u have started top feed. If so, stop completely n put on exclusive breast feeding till either breast is empty or baby is satisfied. There is no reason that milk is not sufficient. Still both breast may have sufficient milk for baby requirement. Feed him every 2-3 hourly or on demand if it is earlier than 2 hours. This practice shall improve or maintain breast milk production.

No deficiency of vit d3 doesn't cause obesity. This wt at 4 months of age could be normal if there is family history of obesity or if baby is very lethargic then other hormonal tests should be done.

My 4 years son has tested positive for c. The size of induration is 25x30 mm. Is it confirmed TB. Or we should go for any other test ?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
If Mantoux test is 25*30 mm induration after 48 hours in 4 year old,there is high risk of developing a disease if no focus is already suspected. It's a paediatrician's decision to start prophylactic chemotherapy or the proper treatment after examination
