I suggest taking your son to pediatric practitioner and get him thoroughly checked. Most probably he is having urinary infection. We need to get urine culture done for the same and satrt antibiotics.

Loose motions are not related to teething but as the babies have a tendency to put every thing into mouth, they are more prone to have infections. Take care of hydration.

Bronchial asthma as well as recurrent bronchitis in children can be treated n prevented with classical homoeopathic medication. First expectation is to bring down the frequency n intensity of the attack later the disease tendency will be uprooted. Detailed case taking n proper follow up is required in this type of cases to eradicate the issue. All the best.

Hi lybrate-user, if your baby is vomiting daily, she could be having gastric reflux problem. You need to discuss in detail with a paediatrician regarding her symptoms and get it treated. Recurrent vomiting can prevent weight gain. Well about the diet. You can give her mashed dal rice with some ghee added, cooked apple, ragi porridge etc now.

12 BREAST FEEDING FACTS EVERY MOTHER SHOULD KNOW

Breast feeding should be started within the first 30-60 minutes of birth.

The thick yellow initial secretion (Colostrum) should not be discarded as it is rich proteins, vitamin A, prevents the development of allergies, and contains antibodies that protect the baby from infections.

The newborn should not be given honey, water or any other fluid other than the breast milkBaby should be breast fed on demand every 2-3 hours devoting 10-15 minutes to each breast.

Baby should be properly latched to the breast. Part of the areolar (the black area behind the nipple) should be in his mouth.The baby should be exclusively breast feed for at least 6 months.

Breast feeding helps in better mental development of the babyIt reduces risk of ear infections, chest infections, diabetes and skin rashesIt helps in strong bonding between mother and childIt leads to lesser pain and bleeding after delivery.

It helps the mother in losing weight fast.Breast feeding protects the mother against breast cancer and ovarian cancer.

It’s Breast Feeding week, so share these facts with your friends and family.

If you are taking a balanced meal and drinking plenty of water , then you will produce enough milk for your baby. After feeding from both sides , your baby WILL BE FULL . You need to burp him after the feed before you put him down. If he doesn't burp then he may cry or be uncomfortable. That doesn't mean he is hungry. You need to give a gap of about 2 hours or more for the milk to be digested. You don't need any medicine.

Sir, I feel your concern. As a neutral doctor I would say that it may go on for a long time or may be for ever. These medicines are wonderful relievers but do not create immunity against allergens or infections. For that I lay stress on the use of supporting ayurveda treatment. Not that allopathy is bad but as said you should try to create immunity in the child. There are very simple herbals designed for children also. These are not quick relievers but give result in the long run and are safe, side effect less. If you agree, pl scan the latest reports/ prescription etc of paediatrician and send. Till then pl continue with the current treatment.

Hi I have a son of 1 year 6 month age. His tlc goes high in every 1month gap by which his fever goes high. Please suggest.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
Recurrent fever with high leucocyte counts at interval of every one month may be due to frequent infection. In this age 6-8 infections in a year is common as the immune system is not fully developed. But if infection is severe enough to cause hospital admission or prolong illness proper evaluation should be done. I would be better able to answer if history is provided in detail. Regards.

Hello, A 3 yr old should eat everything that is made for the entire family. Food ethnicity plays a major role. Teach him to eat food that is made in your household, as he has to follow that all his life. There should not be a separate treatment for him.

There is canine appetite or variable hunger. The kid picks his nose and shouts out in his sleep. They tend to twitch their hands and feet and have milky urine. A detectable symptom is a pale blue shading around the mouth.
  2. Santonine. [Sant]: The alkaloid of Cina is additionally a solution for round worms. It is not a protected cure as Cina and not anymore adequate.
  3. Caladium [Calad]: Very effective when worms go over the perineum and get into the vagina in young ladies, with the tendency to excite arousal.
  4. Teucrium. [Teucr]: It is the solution for ascarids or pinworms. There is much disturbance brought about by them in the rectum. Although, it once in a while flops in this condition. Another solution for stick worms is Sinapis nigra.
  5. Pigelia. [Spig]: student jolting with the paleness of the face, blue circles around the eyes, blackout, sickened feeling with nauseated feeling about the navel brought on by the nearness of worms, shows the need of Spigelia. It has stools comprising of bodily fluid, faces and worms. Put a pinch on a cloth and breathe in till the time shivering and convulsions from the worms stop.
  6. Ignatia [Ign]: Is effective where the kid is highly energised and has tickling and itching at the butt.
  7. Indigo [Indg]: Is a solution for ascarids or string worms in melancholic youngsters, with extreme pain in the umbilical locale as well as convulsions from the worms.
  8. Sabadilla [Sabad]: For those who have worm symptoms like nausea, heaving and colic.
  9. Stannum. [Stann]: Stannum so stuns the worms that they are easily dislodged by laxatives. It has many worms’ symptoms including pale indented face and eyes encircled by blue rings, Sluggish smell, unpleasing odour, bad breath and inactive fever. Stannum is very helpful in this case.
  10. Calcarea [Calc]: Calcarea is a very effective remedy to get rid of ringworms as it kills them and they pass through the stool.
  11. Cuprum oxydatum nigrum. [Cupr-o]: This cure will expel a wide range of worms, cure trichinosis, and even tapeworms. One small cap in addition with Nux vomica four or five times each day for four to six weeks, which dependably promises to cure tapeworm without bringing on the patient any discomfort whatsoever. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

A six month old baby is ready for starting food other than formula milk. You can start by giving the baby some fresh fruit juice, mashed banana and thin moong dal khichri. You can give Narial pani, vegetable soup (stained). Remember that salt and sugar should be used sparingly. Start one thing at a time, see how the baby likes it. You can use full cream packaged milk, undiluted after boiling and removing the malai, with katori and spoon. Do not use bottles. Bottle feeding causes diarrhoea.
