If milk supply is high you can continue to give him. Instead of tablet you apply bitter creams or put a plaster over the nipple to prevent him

My baby is 3 months old I was feeding him breast milk plus formula milk as milk supply is less. My problem is now he is not at all sucking me.

Pediatrician

Why did you start formula milk? breast milk is best for the baby but it require a little effort, and you are making the baby lazy by giving bottle feeds which requires less effort then as compared to sucking on breast, they will always choose the easier alternative and then wont suck on breast, try to give exclusive breast feeding till at least 6 months of age

Pain in abdomen is frequent complaint in children an many of them without much reason on examination. The children grow the problem and there is nothing to worry about it.

This might be related to some muscle catch/cramp. Withhold running for few days and let your body rest. Can apply some pain relieving ointment like volini and massage.

Asthma in Children: Diagnosis and Treatment

MAMC, MRCPCH, MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician
Ask Free Question
Has your child been coughing frequently? Is the cough chronic in nature, making your child breathe rapidly and does he/she complain about a tightened chest? These symptoms signify that your child is having asthma. Asthma is a medical condition characterized by paroxysmal wheezing respiration dyspnoea. It is common in children and an affected child experiences difficulty in breathing, and a whizzing sound is produced, especially during expiration. Asthma may lead to severe health complications and needs immediate diagnosis and treatment.

Diagnosis: The diagnosis of asthma is based on the symptoms, medical history and a physical examination of the child.

The different modes of asthma diagnosis are as follows:

Medical history and symptoms: You must tell the doctor about any history of breathing trouble with your child or whether there are chances of other inherited health conditions. You must explain your child's symptoms properly, which may include coughing, wheezing, chest pain or tightness and others if observed.
Physical examination: A physical exam will be carried out in your child where the doctor will listen to his heart and lungs, and look for eye or nose allergies.
Medical tests: A chest X-ray of the child has to be carried out, along with a simple lung function test known as spirometry. This test measures the amount of air present in the lungs and determines how fast it can be exhaled. Spirometry enables a doctor to determine the severity of the asthma. Some other tests are also carried out for the identification of asthma triggers. They include allergy skin testing, blood tests and X-rays to know if sinus infections are affecting the asthma. An asthma test determines the amount of nitric oxide in your child's breath.

Treatment: Based on your child's severity of asthma symptoms and his medical history, the doctor will provide you with an action plan to treat the same. This action plan explains all the medications your child requires, the dosage and schedule of the medicines. The plan also includes points on what to do when the asthma worsens and when an emergency treatment is required. Anti-inflammatory drugs are prescribed to children who require bronchodilator medication. All asthma medicines used by adults can be used in case of children but in lower dosages.

You should give the asthma medications to your child using a home nebulizer or a breathing machine. A nebulizer delivers asthma drugs by transforming them from liquid to a mist. The child gets the drug by breathing it via a face mask.

In order to control and manage asthma in children, they must avoid the triggers and should keep away from any source of smoke. A doctor must be consulted to know about the best diagnosis and treatment methods.

Hi, thanks for contacting me. Your son is possibly suffering from eczema/ dandruff of the scalp. Treatment would involve keeping the scalp'moist' use a good quality oil to massage the roots and then wash it off after 10 minutes with a baby'no-tears' shampoo. If the problem persists, talk to me on private chat or consult your pediatrician. Warm regards

My Doctor have advised me to breastfeed my baby in every 2 hours. But how much time should I allow my baby per feeding?

Current consensus is breast feeding on demand. So if the baby is hungry he or she will cry. There is no fixed time needed per feed. If he or she is full then they will stop sucking. Also it is best to alternate between breasts every time.

3 months is too short a period to get worried. You keep on trying and if both of you are normal you will conceive even if a bit late
