Burp him regularly after each meal. When you put him to sleep ensure that the head end is elevated about 15 degrees. This is self limiting and usually finishes by 6 months of age

The only diet for a 4 month old baby is mothers milk! under special circumstances formula feeding can be given but only if required. There might be other reasons for the baby for not taking breast milk like colic pain problem or any any problem. Just rule out any other problem rather than shifting to any other diet. I suggest you to continue only breast milk atleast till 6 months.

She is too young to worry for all these amd as the child grows there will be change in colour so stop worrying. Also avoid mustard oil as it causes darknes of skin.

What is zinc preparation and how will it cure loose motions in my one year old daughter?
ORS is the first step you have to turn towards. There is quantity of water prescribed on the sachet that is to be mixed for 1 sachet of ORS powder. Zinc suspension helps a lot in infants suffering from loose motion. Z & D drops is the most prescribed one. My pediatrician does so. Ofcourse, these should be given only after consulting your pediatrician. Bifilac Probiotic Syrup is the most effective I have experienced for my daughter. Loose motion, may it be due to any reason, this oral suspension for babies help to cope up with the situation. This is a powder medicine that needs to be mixed with clean drinking water before use. Once the water is added, the medicine can be used for a maximum of 5 days. Rest should be discarded.

This is atopy with hyper reactive airways. She will benefit from using inhaledcorticosteroids which will have to be prescribed by a pediatrician after examining her. Her skin condition will gradually improve with time and treatment.

Dear Lybrate user, During lactation period better to avoid medicines. Do - 1) Avoid excess Salt & Spicy food 2) If you have constipation than cure it 3) Take boiled water added sunthi powder in it to drink 4) Increase Milk & Milk Product in Diet 5) For Locally application I advice Shalmali Kantak + Yastimadhu Powder+Lodhra powder + Keshar + Swetachandan(Sukkhad) + Raktachandan powder+mungdaal - prepare paste of it and apply on face thick layer before complete dryness remove it and wash face with warm water Lepam Can't be applied before Sunrise and after sunset.
