Small babies sleep more. You must wake her up for feeding by gently stroking. Once the stomach is full she will again go for sleep.

I have a daughter who is 8 month, 1 week old. My baby has not started teething yet. At present, I have only included brown rice kheer, rawa kheer, dal rice, chikoo and cerelac in her diet. I want to introduce her to new food stuff and want to know what else I can possibly include which will be more nutritious. 1. Are babies also suppose to have a breakfast, lunch, dinner pattern like adults? If yes, then what should be given during these times? 2. What should be the time gap between the three meals? 3. Should we give babies some snacks between the three meals? If yes, then what needs to be given? 4. Can I start her on chicken soup or mutton soup or should I give only vegetable soups for now? 5. If possible could I get a baby growth chart from you which can help me track her growth?

For 8 months old babies require meals every 3-4 hrs once. You can continue breast feeding along with these. You can give chicken. Or mutton or veg soup. But don't give pieces yet. Egg yellow can be added. Ragi. Dal. Rice. Wheat all in thick soups type. Or smashed. Teething for usually starts 8 months-1 yr. 2 months. Whenever the child cries for food you can feed it. Need not wait for 3 hrs to be complete. Every time a bowl of meal is required. Don't force to much neither let to loose.

I am 20 years old and my problem is continuously cough and cold so that my problem so please tell me my solution.

Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

As narrated earlier, we should try to maintain proper hygienic condition while eating, drinking, mouth gargles etc. The container which we use for taking any food/water etc. Should be properly cleaned. Infection can be treated by proper antibiotics etc. But to avoid repeated infection, proper hygiene is tb maintained. As repeated infection lowers the immunity of body and invites to get infection again. This is a vicious circle which nedds to be taken care. Thus treatment is in the hands of parent for avoiding repeated infection. Doctor can only treat the infection once it is there.

You have given wrong value of head circumference it 33- 35 cm at birth. How is it your child has 21 cm as you said! she should be microcephalic and associated with genetic problems which will make it impossible to grow to be 15 months, if your statement of 21 cm is right. Feel free to ask more.

Dear lybrate-user, fruit juices, fibre rich food such as vegetables and green leaves should be added in diet. Reduce the amount of milk in food. Don't force him to go for potty. Have a regular time for toilet training.

If you are breast feeding and your periods have just resumed then wait for 3 cycles at least to see what happens. Normally the first few periods may be irregular . I would also advice you to use a good contraception in the meantime.

Best Ways to Deal With Tonsillitis in Kids

Tonsillitis, in the easiest terms, is the swelling of tonsils in our throat that is accompanied by symptoms like throat pain, difficulty in swallowing/ drinking, altered voice and fever etc.

As in the case of most infections, the occurrence of tonsillitis is more common in children due to relatively lower immunity and habits that invite infections. Let's take a look at the first line of defence when you have a cranky child with swollen tonsils.

1. Make your child gargle with salty warm water: This treatment is most helpful in any infection in the mouth. Add half teaspoonful of salt to a glass of warm water and make the child gargle with the mixture as many times in the day as possible (to a maximum of 5 times). Continue till the condition prevails.

Make sure the child spits out the water and not drinks it.

2. Antibiotics: Consult the ent specialist and have the antibiotics if it is a bacterial cause as per the doctor. Take the alternative treatment prescribed in case of other causes. The entire course of medication should be completed even if the kid gets better sooner to eliminate all traces of bacteria.

3. Painkiller/numbing lozenges: Painkillers that are prescribed by the doctor can be given to ease the pain. Same is the case with lozenges but care should be taken that he/she should not have too many of these.

4. Allow him/her to take rest: It does help in a betterment of the condition!

5. Give warm (not hot) soothing food: Soup, ginger honey mixture, ginger tea can help soothe the inflamed tonsils in most cases. The condition, more often than not, gets better within 7-10 days.

This is problem of constipation. Your child's diet should have plenty of fibrous diet like chapati, fruits, vegetables, reduce the milk intake and avoid maida products. Presently you can give a trial of syrup duphalac twice daily fr 4-5 days. Diet modification is more important than medications.

Hello there. Your child is suffering with an Acute Dysentery, in easier words an infection of the gut. This is caused due to bacterial infections. This can be treated using antibiotics and oral rehydration solution.
