Along with the baby, the mother also benefits physically and emotionally from breastfeeding. Due to the release of the prolactin hormones, a peaceful and nurturing sensation fills the mother.

There are certain reason for keeping hand in mouth. Usually bottle fed and/ or hungry baby develop this habit. This is age is for weaning. Start semi solids beside breast feeding and top milk (not in bottle). It may solve problem.

Is it fine to introduce liquid diet to 3 months baby as breastfeeding is insufficient for my baby's need?

Hi, exclusive breastfeeding is recommended for 6 months, it increases immunity of child and provides all nutrients. If not able to give breastfeed then formula ffed like nan 1, lactogen 1 can be given. But you should try to feed child as much as possible because this will increase your milk production. Wishing your baby a good health.

My 5 year daughter has asthma. What is the effect of using an asthma preventer long time? I heard that using for the year might cause bone shrinkage. Is it true?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
High doses of inhaled steroids taken long-term, however, may decrease bone density, which increases the chance of bone fractures. People older than age 50 should have regular bone density scans and take calcium and vitamin D supplements.But a your daughter is just 5 so you can go for such medicines if you likes so.Myself being a homoeopath will suggest you to go for homoeopathic treatment.a homoeo meddicines dont have any side effects.

Probably he is suffering from breath holding condition. If it is breath holding, it may go on its own after some time and earlier if you do not pay attention to it. But it is better to consult pediatrician to ascertain real ailment as he suffered from seizure in infancy.

Isolated speech delay can be ignored if all other milestones are normal & if he can hear normally as some children pick up speech bit late.

Would you please mention your age, height, weight and duration of illness and any other associated symptoms. It is not clear whether you seek advice for all three conditions or for fever and cough only. Please clarify. If you are an adult, I may not be helpful to you.

You can wake him up at set interval to feed or if baby sleeps comfortable then can wait 4-5 hours and feed once they get up and would be more comfortable if they sleep after a good feed.

I am teenager. I have problems of throat pain constantly. Can you help me?

MD - Paediatrics, Diploma in Child Health (DCH)
Pediatrician,
You might be suffering from repeated throat infections or tonsillitis. Or you might have blocked nose which makes you mouth breathe in the night and makes the throat dry. I suggest you consult with an ent surgeon, get fully examined and come to the root of the problem.

Respiratory tract infection Is an important cause of mortality in under 5 children in India. If your child refuses feed, if takes rapid shallow breaths, if skin colour appear bluish, if high grade fever and cough then it is the sign of severe pneumonia. Immediately rush to hospital. If hospital too far then give first dose of antibiotics like amoxycillin clavulanic acid and relieve fever by paracetamol, cold sponging. Don't close his mouth. Allow him to breathe fresh air.
It is the timely medical treatment which matters.

At 11 yrs of age deciduous teeth or milk teeth are still there and all teeth have chronological age that is they have individual time of falling and eruption so hence don' t worry.
