My son is almost 4 & 1/2 years old. From past 2 months he has been complaining about stomach pain. since two weeks ago he was suffering from loose motions and I consulted a doctor and also told about his frequent stomach pain. She prescribed Normet and Zinconia and also told to deworm him with Zentel syrup. Now its very frequent and he complains every time whenever he eats something. I also feels that his stools are smelly from past two days. Kindly advice on the same. Could you please suggest any specific diet. Thanks.

If there is no associated symptoms with recurrent pain in abdomen, it is idiopathic and has no specific treatment. By passage of time it gets cure on its own. Pain after food may be due to not liking for food. Give him according to his choice and desire to eat. Deworming time to time is required. If his wt is about 16 kg, you need not to worry. All nutritious rich in protein edibles available in home are good.

My Kids Don't Like Milk.- common dialogue by the mothers
Drinking milk isn?t the only way to enjoy its benefits. For example, try making soup and oatmeal or other hot cereals with milk instead of water. Pour milk over cold cereal for breakfast or a snack. Incorporate milk into a fruit smoothie or milkshake. Chocolate milk and cocoa made with milk are also ways to increase the milk in your child?s diet.
Sources of calcium also might include an ounce or two of cheese a cup of calcium-enriched orange juice, or a small carton of yogurt. Your kids can also get calcium from dark green, leafy vegetables like kale or foods such as broccoli, almonds, tortillas, or tofu made with calcium.

Nusobee is good. But my advice is to stop bottle feeding and give only breast milk. But if you still give the formula avoid bottle and feed with spoon.

Worried about my little one as her intakes are very less. Urine output is also low. Though she is active but fussy about eating. Concerned about management of situation. We are trying to give her chaach, coconut water, khichdi, soup, soya milk etc. But she is not having it much.

Meaning of persistent diarrhoea is different for doctor than parents. If you have mentioned about No. motions in a day, quantity of stool, consistency, either with more water or feces, containing mucus and / or blood. related with dietic habbit. it would have been easy to suggest. Any way, if her wt is about 11 kg, you need not to worry. Give her food of her choice and sufficient quantity of water to drink insist forcing ors etc.

If your child is allergic to some food item or dust you need to take care and avoid these which might be reason for her cold and cough. You can start her with sitophaladi churna, mix a pinch of powder in one teaspoonfull of honey and give daily at bed time.

Hello, my child is 3. 5 years. He doesnt eat properly. In fact we have to force feed him every time. He is not a fan any particular food. He weighs only 14kgs. Please suggest me how to increase his appetite since he is not interested in trying out new food. He looks too thin.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Stop force feeding him. Let him enjoy his own choice. We can not contro chldren's behaviour. At 3. 5 years his weight is in normal range. You seem to worry unnecessarily like many of us.

My six month daughter does not digest any thing except mother milk. Every time she vomit whenever I give dal.

My six month daughter does not digest any thing except mother milk. Every time she vomit whenever I give dal.
Complementary foods should be gradually introduced once the baby turns six months old. It is a new experience for babies to swallow solid food when they have only had milk to suckle on till now. Try introducing solids gradually. The foods should be of a soft, thick consistency. And give time to the baby to get used to one taste before introducing a new taste.

If she is drinking enough water and is active this is OK . If there is any other symptom she need to be checked up . If she is bottle fed she need to be given additional water unlike breast fed babies

She is 9 years old. But even now she has bed wetting problem while sleeping in night. How can we get rid of her this problem.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
Bedwetting after 6 years is abnormal. You must rule out urine infection by a culture sensitivity test, then you must try with non pharmacological methods like avoiding water after 5pm etc.

9 mnth baby food should be like that which is easily digestable, you can prefer home made food over processed food materials. You cn feed baby mashed fruits like banana, soft part of apple & other seasonal fruits. Use coocked rice n pulses. Halwa.
