Your son must be getting steroids for cough which makes him healthy and after recovery, medicine is stopped so the appetite must have decreased and again become sick thus this cycle shall go on. Do not give any medicine containing steroids for cough. Steroid does more harm than good in long run. It is a very specific drug used for specific disease. Treatment of cough depends on cause.

Add semi solids and solids like dal roti khichadi kheer etc well cooked in oil or ghee in her diet. If she is taking milk in small quantity, increase frequency. Do not force. Passing urine many time may be due to excess water intake which contribute to taking less diet too.

Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Surgery - Why It Is Done?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Jaipur
Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Surgery - Why It Is Done?

Cleft lip and cleft palate are the two most common birth defects affecting children all over the world. What happens in the cleft lip is that the upper lip is incompletely formed and in cleft palate abnormalities, we see babies with an incompletely formed roof of the mouth. Both these can be found individually or can occur together. These conditions can be severe or mild and affect one or both sides of the face.

Causes
The fEtus undergoes the separation of the upper lip and the roof of the mouth pretty early. In certain cases, this separation does not happen or happens incompletely and certain parts of the upper lip and roof of the mouth fail to form properly leading to cleft lip and palate.

Repair through surgery

  1. Plastic surgery is the only way to repair a cleft lip and/or palate. Both of these impair vital functions like speaking, eating, breathing, and hearing properly.
  2. Surgery is done to restore function and to make the affected child look more normal.
  3. Most cleft lip and palate surgeries are done on very young children usually 3 months to a year old.
  4. Before the actual surgery, a team of specialist define a course of treatment, including repair of the cleft using surgery, which means plugging the hole in the lip or the palate; speech rehabilitation and dental restoration, as the child usually has no teeth in the affected parts of the upper palate.

The specialists required are:

  1. Plastic surgeon
  2. Pediatric dentist
  3. Ear, nose, and throat specialist
  4. Auditory or hearing specialist

What happens during surgery?
Usually, cleft lip surgery happens in children as young as 3-6 months old. It has to be carried out under general anaesthesia. If the condition is severe, and the cleft lip is wide, special procedures like lip adhesion or a moulding plate are used to bring the two parts of the lip closer and it is fully repaired.

Cleft palate repair surgery is done at the age of 9-12 months only.
What happens here is that plastic surgeons bring together the muscles of the upper soft palate and rearrange them to cover the gaping hole in the roof of the mouth. The surgery is usually done under general anaesthesia and requires a short hospital stay.

  • Without a normal palate, the child can’t speak properly. So, surgery helps to improve and normalise speech.
  • And that’s not all. The child may require more surgeries as he grows older to treat these two problems.
  • This is because the child’s facial structure changes and he or she may require advanced surgeries like pharyngoplasty, which helps improve speech, or alveolar bone grafts to provide stability for permanent teeth.
  • A bone graft is usually done when the child is 6-10 years old and it closes gaps in the bone or gums near the front teeth. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pediatrician.

Definitely she can have tomatoes in curry, give ORS (WHO formula) instead of fruit juice, you can give raw fruits. Raw fruits have fibres which helps to hold water in intestine, so improves the consistency of motions and decrease frequency. She can have all natural foods.

Delivery done for my wife 5 days before. But breast milk was not producing adequately. So insufficient diet for baby. can milk formation be done by some food? Any other diet can be given?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Milk supply is dependent on stimulation by the baby provides while feeding. More you breastfeed your baby, more milk will be produced. Try to feed your baby more often if your milk supply is less. Pumping your breasts after feeding also can stimulate more milk production. Two main causes of less breastmilk supply is poor latch or scheduled feeding. Baby should not nipple feed, rather should breastfeed. Baby should have wide open mouth and the nipple should go towards back of the mouth. There are certain medicines which can increase quantity of milk. If your child is sleeping well and active with your milk then milk is adequate for the baby. A substance that increases milk supply is called a galactagogue. Some of the most commonly used herbal galactagogues are fenugreek, blessed thistle, and alfalfa. There are also several prescription medications that can increase milk supply. Domperidone and metoclopramide increase the production of prolactin and thereby breast milk also. Shatavari powder is an ayurvedic preparation that can increase milk production.

My 1 month old is spitting up most of his milk after almost every feeding. Is it normal?

After every feed burp your baby. Babies may puke out extra milk after every feed which is like curd. But see if baby is gaining weight. If gaining weight normally then nothing to worry.

After c section I have no breastfeeding first 8 days after that I have very low supply what is my problem.

Pediatrician, Kaithal
Late starting of breastfeeding is the main cause, as baby sucking is best stimulation for better breast milk output. Continue to feed. Also check your medicines, you are taking. If there is Pyridoxine in any drug, please stop it as it also decreases milk output.

I have a 4 weeks baby boy. He des breastfeed. My breast milk is not sufficient. Can I give him lactogen1?

General Physician,

It is very important for mothers to know that infants need nothing more than breast milk in the first 6 months of life. Anything new must be introduced only after 6 months, and in a gradual manner along with breastmilk. As for milk, after six months, mothers can start using infant formula milk as, it is the safest alternative to breast milk and it also contains more nutrients than in cow’s milk. Animal milk must be introduced to infants only after 12-18 months of age because, unlike mother’s milk, it lacks adequate nutrients, contains no antibodies that protect against infections, it is also a poor source of iron and can be harmful to the baby’s developing kidneys. As for choosing between cow’s milk and buffalo milk, cow’s milk is a better option to start with, as buffalo milk is rich in fat and difficult to digest. Indigestion can lead to diarrhea. While introducing milk, start by adding a few teaspoons of the pasteurized milk to soups, halwa and some room-temperature curd. If he/she tolerates this well, then over time the quantity can be increased with careful monitoring. When introducing buffalo milk, mothers must first boil the milk, let it cool and then remove the layer of cream before feeding the baby.
