Proper hand washing before each feed & avoiding bottle feeding will help in preventing frequent loose motions. Vaccination against rota virus should be done before 6 months.

Hi, My daughter is 2 years and 10 months old now. She doesn't like to eat any food even sweets or ice cream. She eats only baby food. That also takes 1 hour to finish each time. When she sees any food she starts to cry and then run away. She doesn't want to chew any food we eat. If I force, she will swallow and then vomit. I allowed her hungry for a day. But no use. I tried many tips like decorative food and all. But it didn't help. How can I get her to chew food?

Some children are fussy about eating. You have to check her thyroid by doing TSH and inform me. You patiently keep trying and she will eat in due course. You make eating a pleasurable trick or game for her. YOU tell her weight and as she grows up she will eat as seen in many children.

My child 1.5yrs is suffering from high fever 101, fever fades after crocin is given but again the temperature rises. Please suggest.

Continue giving crocin 6-8 hourly for 2-3 days. It is symptomatic medicine and will only work for 5-6 hours after each dose. Specific therapy requires more information. How long fever is there? what are other symptoms so that focus for infection can be thought of? most cases without focus fever comes down in 2-3 days time and is likely to be viral s in most cases. Post detail history for further evaluation.

Don't do force feeding. Start semi solids with one item like dal, khichadi, suji kheer etc what ever amount she takes that shall develop her taste too. Additional top milk with spoon (no bottle). Suji kheer is as good as cerelac. Her weight is with normal range.

Normally only breastfeeding is sufficient for the first six months of age. If your baby is not gaining weight (normally weight increase is 25-30/ day for first 3 months) then start formula along with breastfeeding. Don't give cow or buffalo milk. Start with 60-90 ml per feed. Don't use bottle.

Split is called regurgitation, which occurs due to swallowing of air by baby during feeding. It is normal.

Hi my baby was diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux with suspected uti. And was put on antibiotics till date. She was 2 months old at diag. Now she is normal. Should we need to continue the med. Dose 1.5ml septron.

The infants are prone to develop recurrent uti and also infection of kidney. This is the reason they need to be put on prophylactic (low dose antibiotic) for long duration. The ultrosonography should also be done to see any damage to the kidney in babies below 2 years of age if there is history of uti. I would like to know whether usg has been done or not. Regards.

Your child is having cerebral palsy. Nees comprehensive treatment by a physiotherapist, speech therapist, neurologist, pediatrician etc. With good care there are instances of cp children doing very well in their life with good management. I wish you and your child a happy future.

My daughter is 4 yrs. Sometimes while walking or even just sitting. Her head falls like a jerk for a second. Wht to do?

This could be normal. But there is also the possibility that this is some type of minor nervous or seizure disorder. You surely need to take her to the doctor and get her examined. If you could capture what you are saying on your phone in the video mode and take it with you when you meet the doctor, it will be easy for him to know what is happening and he could easily come to a diagnosis. Don't ignore this. May be nothing but should be checked out.

I have started giving my 11 month baby buffalo milk with water on 50: 50 ratio from 4 months. But since then he has been getting lot of cough and sometimes he even vomits at night while coughing. I give him bottle with 120 ml milk twice during the night and once I feed him. During the day I give him aata soup, banana, roti, rice, etc. Of whatever we cook at home. Is milk the cause of his cough? If yes, what milk would be best suited for him then?

lybrate-user if you are sure that it started after the milk then it can be reason for that as different individual reacts to food differently. As natural product is best to feed I will not advise you to stop it. I can suggest you a homeopathic medicine. Give tuberculinum bovinum 200 1 dose to the baby. There may be further requirement of doses but for that you need to consult as the repetition is always case specific in homeopathy.

Infants take time to adjust their biological clock as per day light,more ever they sleep a lot in day after feed. Just feeding baby,rocking movements will be helpful.

From 14th Aug, she developed fever. We consulted local paediatrician nad he prescribed calpol syrup along with antibiotic. But the fever kept coming back after the effect of the dose subsided. Next day she complained of stomach pain. Doctor advice blood tests which was done. Reports were ok with no trace of malaria and dengue. Till today there is a tinge of fever at all times. Of late she has sometimes stomach pains and has to clear her stomach multiple times to get relief. Please suggest if its normal and will subside or we need to consult elsewhere?

Your daughter of 6 years has fever since the last 5 days. If she is on antibiotic the course of 5 days would just be getting over. If fever is still persisting and she has stomach ache you do need to consult another doctor.
