Nutrition For Expectant Mothers

Nutrition For Expectant Mothers

A. Nutrition deserves special attention during pregnancy because of increased demand and specific role of different nutrients for the baby during pregnancy. 
B. A woman whose diet is adequate before pregnancy is usually able to come out with full term pregnancy 
Without elaborate modifications of her diet and lifestyle. For example, in diabetes, incidence of structural defects can be reduced to nil by bringing the blood glucose level under good control couple of months before conceiving.
C. Maternal nutrition taken during pregnancy are very important in supporting breastfeeding. Breast milk is best and complete food for baby during first four months as it also provides antibodies for protection against many infections. 
D. Undernourished mothers are prone to delivery before nine months. 
So, take good care of your health during pregnancy.

Swami ramdev reports patients have benefited by anulomvilom pranayama. You will have to close and open your son' nostrils with your hand. I hope if you do it there will be definite improvement. Otherwise, medicines are the last resort with little success so why not try pranayama that might benefit just as other mental health problems.

Doctor only suggested me to use Venusia max cream on my 1 month baby. Can I use it or shall I use dermadew cream.

Venusia max is not a baby cream. However it is good cream for extreme dryness of the skin. Adults often use it. You can use any other baby cream for the baby as they are milder. Coconut oil is the best substitute.

Tips to Maintain Healthy Teeth

Tips to Maintain Healthy Teeth

If chewing food and retaining a sparkling smile is not enough for you, avoiding toothaches and a visit to the dentist could be reason enough to maintain healthy teeth. Ignoring your tooth health can lead to many problems. Answer yourself the following question. Would you like your teeth inside your mouth or in a glass tumbler beside your bed at nighttime? 

If you opted for the former, then going through the following tips and advices will go a long way in helping you sustain healthy teeth. They are:

  1. Brush and floss twice a day: Brushing and flossing twice a day, on a regular basis will help you maintain healthy teeth and gums in the long run. The ideal time to brush your teeth is 20 minutes after a meal. Opting for a toothbrush with a small head and soft bristles gives you better access to even the deeper portions of your mouth, thus providing comprehensive cleansing to your teeth. Moreover, softer bristles are generous on your gums as well.
  2. Nutrition: Whatever you eat, either protects you or makes you more susceptible to diseases and disorders. This stands true for your oral health as well. As such, choosing the right foods early in your life is of vital importance. Foods such as cold drinks, cakes, candies and other such sugary substances facilitate the growth of germ and bacteria in your mouth, resulting in plaque and cavities. Choosing foods that are low in starch and sugar will reduce the development of germs and help eradicate cavities or plaque in the long run.
  3. Smoking: Even the pack of smoke that you buy endorses smoking is injurious to your general health. Smoking causes reduced flow of blood to the mouth, which resultantly leads to increased chances of periodontal disease and mouth cancer. Smoking, moreover causes a decline in the ability of the bones and tissues to revascularize (self-heal). All else apart, just stop smoking.
  4. Chewing gums: Chewing gums are highly beneficial especially after a meal. They not only increase the flow of saliva in your mouth, but also improves the flow of blood to your brain, thus enhancing your alertness by close to 10%. In addition, chewing gums help neutralize the acid in your mouth, thus helping you cleanse your mouth.

Hello thanks for the query gain in weight three times of birth weight at 12-13 month of age is quite normal. The growth is very rapid in first few months of infancy but then it gradually slows down. The weight gets doubled of birth weight at 6 month 3 times at one year and 4 times by 2 year of age. I hope you have got the point. Maintain the record of weight and height on growth chart so that you can better assess the growth of child. Regards.

My son 8 years old had earlier been diagnosed with Phimosis. Our paediatrician advised a cream to applied with which his skin started to retract (fucidin) and it seemed to have worked fine. However, his penis skin got stuck again after sometime which we corrected after applying the cream for sometime again. Now he has been advised to retract his skin regularly however in 1-2 instances his skin developed a cut which was painful to him while urinating. Is there some permanent solution to this problem. We don't want to go for a surgery as one of the leading hospital Doctor advised. Pl advise what is the best solution to this problem. Also to let you know, we came to know of this problem initially because he was facing issues during urinating. He was complaining of frequent urination with only few droplets. Though the problem was largely sorted out after his skin retraction, however he did complain once or twice on urinating issue but not recently.

Once phimosis problem is resolved, it hardly requires any surgery. He is 8 years old. He can understand very well, how to retract foreskin and to keep it in same position for some time. Make retraction regular practice as much time as can be done in a day even before urination after applying cream. Crack in fore skin shall be resolved as soon as fore skin becomes soft. Retract fore skin before urination to avoid urine to touch cracked part. Keep the part clean.

Tips for Parents and Carers

Tips for Parents and Carers

Healthy eating gives kids the energy they need for their busy days.

Here are some great ways to make it easier.

Breakfast is important: it can be up to 12 hrs since their last meal, so kids need to refuel for the day ahead. Give him healthy choices like cereal and reduced fat milk, toast, fresh fruit, eggs on toast, juice and reduced fat yoghurt.

Water works: get kids into the habit of drinking water to keep them hydrated throughout the day.

Snack smart: encourage your kids to take an interest in their health early in life by planning their own healthy snacks-this will help them look for a healthy diet when they get older.

Get cooking: food is not just about good nutrition; it's one of life's great pleasures. Transform your kids into young cooks-even young children can help peel carrots, pod peas, great cheese, put together tacos or design their own healthy pizza toping. If they've helped make it, they'll be more likely to enjoy eating it.

Slow and steady: encourage them to eat slowly. This prevents overeating and helps them recognize when they're full.

Eat at the table: eating snacks and meals sitting down at the table or kitchen bench instead of in front of the tv is good habit for the whole family.

Get a balance: variety and balance are the keep to helping a child enjoy a healthy diet. Aim to eat a variety of foods each day (this depends on the age of the child) including fruit, vegetables breads and cereals, lean meat or fish and reduced fat dairy products.

Tasty exploration: encourage kids to try different food. Exposure to lots of different tastes and flavours adds excitement to meals.

I'm a breast feeding mom all of suddenly I got fever and cold, doc suggested not to feed baby until I get cured, but unfortunately the milk left over in my breast is paining a lot pls give me Solution urgent I can't handle this pain.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
There is no rationale in asking you not to feed. If airborne the infection may/or will spread as you obviously handle a baby. Absolutely no need to stop feeding. Keep on feeding and do not deny baby his nutrition. This will relieve pain and baby gets feed as well.

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.

My baby is 7months old can any doc prescribed me what all foods should I start to my baby. As she is too weak.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
My baby is 7months old can any doc prescribed me what all foods should I start to my baby. As she is too weak.
1. From the 7th month onward you can start feeding thrice a day as proper breakfast, lunch and early dinner. Now also breast feeding is the major source of nourishment to the baby, so please do not quit breast feeding. The feeding times can be around 9 am, 1 pm and 5 pm 2. The quantity for each feed in this month will be roughly the size of your baby’s fist and in terms of liter around 90 to 100 ml. 3. The consistency can be little thick and should stay in the spoon without spilling off. 4. Always feed a baby seated and not in sleeping position. 5. Sterilize all the utensils that are being used for cooking and feeding. 6. Please follow the 3 Day Rule before introducing any new food. I have structured the charts in a such way that the baby is gradually introduced to heavier diets, so I would advice you to follow the same order. First Week DayBreakfastLunchEarly Dinner MondayRice Cereal (HM)Plain KhichdiApple Puree TuesdayOats PorridgePlain PongalVegetable Soup WednesdaySooji KheerCarrot KhichdiPear Puree ThursdayBarley porridgePlain Ghee RiceBanana Puree FridayOats KheerFlavoured PongalGrape juice SaturdayBrown Rice UpmaRagi PorridgeCarrot Beet Soup SundayPotato PureeTomato KhichdiChickoo Puree If your child is weak some tests and more details need to be discussed and consult me on this site.

Hi, your son seems to b. E having a tongue tie. That makes moving tongue upward and outward difficult. This can be corrected with a minor tongue tie surgery. Get him to your dentist and get a complete checkup done. Tongue tie surgery can help him to freely move his tongue.

Isolated speech delay is common on some children. You can wait for some more time. You have to rule out hearing defect. Show to an audiologist.

Continue breast feeding. Don't worry so long as she is active and growing well. Babies take time to establish circadian rhythm (about 6 months)
