A nine month old is ready to eat from the family pot provided that the food is non spicy and wholesome. Offer the baby whatever is cooked in the house. Regular foods like dal, rice, khichri, mashed roti, boiled egg etc can be started. You can also give suji kheer, halwa, soups (Veg and non Veg) and chappatis soaked and mashed in dal,soup or dahi. A small amount of extra butter or ghee may be added to in the food. This adds to caloric value and helps the child gain weight. Fruits such as banana/mango can be given. Breast feeding should be continued.
7-8 kg at 9 months is good weight at this age. It is not necessary to add powdered badam etc. The tiny particles of badam can cause problems. Wait till the child at least one year old.

I am, a mother of 3 and a half months old baby girl. I am concerned about my lactation as my baby's pediatrician has told me that my baby is having a slow weight gain respective of her age, she weighs 5.5 kgs. My question is that is there really anything to worry about her weight? Is my baby not getting sufficient breast milk? I am confused whether I am producing enough breast milk or not? It will be very kind of you, if you could help me out.

Nature provides milk to baby through her mother which is sufficient to feed baby if mother is taking nutritious good diet. Weight of baby is 5.5 kg which is with in normal range. It is good indication that baby is getting sufficient milk.

My daughter 2.8 years age often complaints about stomachache; more often before passing stool. What can be the reason and what is the remedy.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
Repeated stomachache is common in that age. If the stools are well formed, no blood & mucus in the stools, urinary symptoms you can ignore it. Give noworm suspension 10ml at bedtime & repeat after 15 days. If much concerned get ultrasound scanning done.

How to build confidence, self-assurance and self-esteem in Kids

Post graduate in counselling psychology
Psychologist,
How to build confidence, self-assurance and self-esteem in Kids
Confidence is a child’s passport to a lifetime of positive mental health, social happiness and long-term academic & professional progress. In other words self-assurance and self-esteem during childhood can be termed as the foundation for every child to lead a positive life and to get well prepared for the future.

However, in today’s demanding academic structure, it is not easy for a child to maintain a good confidence level, from competing nursery admission to weekly school tests, today’s child goes through numerous examinations, almost every day in his/her life and he/she is being judged both at home and outside. According to child psychologist Shivani Misri Sadhoo, oral communication alone by parents is not enough to build confidence in kids, she shares some important parenting tips that will help parents in this area:


1. Allow your child to make decisions:

When your child gets the chance to make choices from a young age, he/she will build confidence in their own judgement. Just consider the age of your child and set their decision-making parameters accordingly. Like, you may ask your 4 years old son or daughter what he /she would like to have in breakfast, an omelette or fruits or chapattis, instead of asking a broad question like “what you will have in your breakfast”, which they will likely to give you an answer either from their imagination or from their list of yummy foods (generally cake, chocolates or junk food).

2. Avoid always rescuing your child

For parents, the desire to prevent their child from getting hurt, feeling discouraged, feeling upset or making mistakes is natural, but when parents intervene, say if the parents go to their child’s school and pressure the cultural teacher to take their child in dance team (which he/she was not selected) then parents are doing something which is not right.

Fever can not be judged by hand. Record temp. 99 F is normal for some baby. If baby is active, there is no need of worry and require no medicine.

Only vitamin d3 is required as it is less in mother's milk, so other vitamins you can get from food itself, instead of medications I would suggest proper diet. Look for diet which contains which vitamins on my facebook page - pediatric department at qury nagadia.

Any seasonal fruit is good for health. Brush teeth properly of your kids as sweetness may cause carries teeth. Some people gets rash around lips. But not all.

Hello. I can understand how difficult it is to manage in such situations. Short lived diarrhoea is very common in children whenever a new food is introduced or the type of food is changed. If your baby is not lethargic, eating and drinking and playing, please do not worry. Offer her who-ors liberally. If any concerns, please see a paediatrician in-person for an assessment.

Hi lybrate-user, babies of 6 months old who feed only milk can pass stool 6-7 times a day or they may not pass stool for many days. But stools are not watery. But if baby is active and gaining weight normally it is no matter to be worried. Maintain hygiene when you nurse your baby.

She gave birth to the girl child on 8 September 2016. But still access milk in her breast. And pain in her breast due to node.

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician,
Its because she may not giving breast milk to her child or child may not taking it properly. Take warm water bath and do massage and express the milk in katori and give it baby by spoon or Paladi if baby is not taking direct breastfeeding. Take milder painkiller like Paracetamol if having pain.
