My baby girl is 15 months old and her weight is 12kgs and height is 71cms and head circumference is 21 cms. Is she appropiate according to her age ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You have given wrong value of head circumference it 33- 35 cm at birth. How is it your child has 21 cm as you said! she should be microcephalic and associated with genetic problems which will make it impossible to grow to be 15 months, if your statement of 21 cm is right. Feel free to ask more.

This type of food habit starts in late infancy, when parents or near & dear either out of love or for their convenience offer such items. Now you may gradually reduce these items and encourage him to eat nutritious home made items of his choice. I hope, he may starts eating regular food.

My son is 3 years 11 months old is suffering from fever with loose motion. Within 10 days he got fever twice with temperature 100-102. What may be the reason behind it? please suggest.

General Physician,
As there is loose motion the infection of stomach or intestines is the reason and he may need antibiotics . If it is just plain watery diarrhoea it may a viral infection an d only fluid replacement is needed . You can give paracetamol also

Pediatrician,

Usually children start walking after 13 months. There is slight delay in your child. If all other milestones are normal you can wait for some more time. Give calcimax plus suspension 5 ml twice daily.

segmented neutrophils are signs of vitamin b12 deficiency..take tablets becasules twice daily for that after meals Fever is not considered medically significant until body temperature is above 100.4 F (38 C). Fever serves as one of the body's natural defenses against bacteria and viruses which cannot live at a higher temperatures..Also, the body's defense mechanisms seem to work more efficiently at a higher temperature -Fevers of 104 F (40 C) or more may be dangerous and demand immediate treatment The following medications may be used at home for mild fever : -Acetaminophen (dolo-650 mg) twice or thrice can be used to lower a fever . Aspirin should not be used in children during a viral illness. -Wear comfortable loose fitting clothes and donot overdress. Overdressing can cause the temperature to rise further. -Tepid water (85 F [30 C]) baths may help bring down a fever -The body should be cooled with a wet sponge. -Fever can cause dehydration.Drink plenty of fluids.Have citrus fruits, particularly Vitamin C rich ones like mausami,Amla juice etc. -Take light and easily digestible home cooked meals .avoid outside food -Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water especially before meals, or after returning from a public places or using public transport. -Further therapy depends on the cause of fever like urinary infection/typhoid or malaria/dengue infection and the accompanying symptoms that need to be investigated and treated accordingly

Am a breastfeeding women. Lack of milk is my problem. How can I increase milk secretions. Please suggest suitable medicine for increasing breast milk.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Hi Shilu. I would suggest you first use natural things and herbs to increase breast milk. try using Jeera, ajwain in you food daily along with a kadha of Jeera and ajwain to increase milk production. Scientific research has shown them to be very effective in increasing milk production. If it does not work you can use medicines like domstal twice a day to increase milk production. Hope this information helps you. All the best.

My 4 month old baby girl is doing greenish stool with mucus and sometimes bubbly stool. Its nw a month and have consulted 2 doctors nd given medicines bt I dnt see any improvemnt. I dnt want to give any more antibiotics to such a small child. Please give me some advice.

Pediatrician, Pune
If any new food is added, babies tend to have greenish stools, avoid janam gutti, gripe water, continue with breast feeds, if the baby is otherwise ok, medicines may not be required, it may be transitional stools and will be ok in due course of time.

Shave his head once completely. By the age of one, the hair starts coming uniformly.Don't worry, not a concern.Sometimes u need to shave it once or even twice for good hair to come, bu it will come.

Hello, 19 month old should be able to drink from a beaker or sippy cup. It is not a good idea to introduce bottle as there is high risk of infections. You can try giving 2-3 cups which is about 500 ml of milk. He can also take curds and cheese which are the other sources of calcium. He should be eating about 4 meals and 1-2 snacks daily.

yes, many times it is normal. if your child is gaining weight properly, you need not to worry. general rule is the weight of the baby should get double at sixth month and triple at 1st birth day with reference to birth weight.

How to protect my daughter from seasonal infection like in this rainy season?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
Children younger than 6 months are at high risk of serious flu illness, but are too young to be vaccinated. People who care for them should be vaccinated instead. Try to avoid close contact with sick people. If you are sick with flu-like illness, it is recommended that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. (your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.) while sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way. Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.
