Firstly treat his loose motions as it is being 6 days now. Increase intake of water in form of ors, lemon juice, fruit juice, buttermilk. Give over ripped banana, pomegranate juice, curd and rice. These are easy to digest and will give energy also.

This is a problem raised very late as weaning starts at the age of 5 months when liquid ate started then slowly semisolids are introduced but from history it appears that you are just in phase 1 that only liquids she is taking you need to start slowly semisolids and then solids you need to start it ok.

We need to see his weight for age. If it is ok. Perhaps it is normal. If it is less than normal, it needs treatment.

Avoid giving milk. Its high time you stop milk. This age group solid food is more helpful than just liquid milk.

Is painless vaccines safe for a child? please tell.

MD
Pediatrician
Ask Free Question
1. There is nothing like painless vaccine. 2. Every vaccine is associated with some pain 3. Whatever there is available in market for human use is made available only after it has gone through three phases of trials (animal + human voulenteers) the forth phase of trial is post sale survays. 4. Please get your child vaccinated immeditely. 5. A little pain will go in few minutes or a day but if the child got the disease it would be more painful for the child and for the family.

Bow Legs:What You Need To Know

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician
Ask Free Question
Often children are born with bowing of legs, due to folded leg position in utero.

Once they start putting pressure on them while walking, they may straighten out. This happens generally by 2 to 3 years of age.

If not corrected then they may cause some serious problems:
*shortening of 1 leg
*deformity
*difficulty walking running
*higher risk of arthritis.

Persistent bowing may be due some deficiency:
*rickets
*Blount's disease
*lead or fluoride poisoning
*others

First few tests:
25 (oh) vitamin d3 level in serum
Serum free calcium level
X-ray of legs.

How will your pediatrician monitor for a change?

Measurements of distance between knees while a child is lying on the back.

This is monitored to see for any worsening

What can be done?

*treat rickets.
*any other underlying problem to be ruled out.
*braces orthopedic devices to keep the leg in straightened position (serious cases)
*surgery after 3 years (determined according to individual case basis)

All problems may not be solved but timely intervention can change the life of a child forever.
