What is his age? Sometimes even normal children are hyperactive and want to play a lot. Not showing interest in studies. There is a fine line between normal and adhd behavior.

Banana is excellent recipe for your baby. In fact ashma has nothing to do with any kind of fruits. It is a myth. Please give your child home made cereals apart from mothers milk. Diet/feed has hardly any role in aetiopathogenesis of asthma. The triggering factors are viral infection dust smoke cold air change in season etc. Best wishes.

Avoid feeding bottle & give her semisolid/ solid food in gradually increasing quantity at frequent intervals. Ensure she eats something every 2 hours. Expect good results in 3 months.

Her weight is fine but on higher side.Plz do not bottle feed,otherwise she may have a tendency to be MOTA later.You may give cow milk but open milk sold through milkman is proven to be contamunated with germs and may be plenty of water.So better milk mat be packets.

Your child is perfectly normal. Sucking finger in this age is an esseantial eeflex in thjs child called sucking reflex which help child in sucking breast. Weight of your child is also normal. After 4 to 6 month of age onky milk is not enough, you should also start giving him some semisolid food like daliya, khichadi,

My baby is 5 weeks old and vomits after feed since birth. She takes both the powder feeds and mother feeds. Since yesterday she is suffering from 99.5 fever measured from underarms. She has cold with a block nose and cough. She is refusing to feed frequently and is not as active as she normally is. Her birth weight was 3 kg and now her weight is 4.3 kg. We consulted multiple paediatricians and as per their advice we gave her 1 ml of DOMSTAL Baby drops three times a day for two days. However we noticed that she cried a lot and was really very fuzzy and was not sleeping at all so we stopped giving domstal. Right now she is suffering from fever, block nose and cough and vomiting after every feed so kindly suggest the best way possible to cure her health.

As I can understand your baby has regurgitation issues. Try to give your feed every 2 hrs followed by burping for minimum of 20 min. Give powder feed only if she demands despite your feeds. If she does not burp even after 20 min, in your lap keep her on stomach and pat a little. When you r awake put her to in lateral position instead of putting on back. Keep in cool environment. It is very hot so that also leads to poor feeding and fever. Must visit pediatrician if child is dull and not passing urine sufficiently.

They might have used all these iv fluids depending on the dehydration status and calculated on the basis of weight and age of the child.You need not worry they will take care and it is their responsibility.They might have told to keep for two more days for total cure/observation so that gastroenteritis won't recurr.

hello, lybrate user, usually baby should be breast fed for 6 months followed by some solid food but mother and her baby should countinue breastfeed for as long as they wish to breastfed. As solids are introduced, usually around the middle of the first year, your baby will shift his primary source of nutrition from your milk to other foods. you may introduce water free from contaminants. to care.

Hi lybrate-user I see that your child is 8 months old. It's great that you have started weaning. You don't need to stop breast feeding till 2 yr. If you wish to give milk pasteurised milk is better.

One year and two month old baby is not speaking yet , only aaaa & un un speaking Pls suggest.

One year and two month old baby is not speaking yet , only aaaa & un un speaking
Pls suggest.
Kids by the age of 12-15 months should have a wide range of speech sounds in their babbling (like p, b, m, d, or n), begin to imitate and approximate sounds and words modeled by family members, and typically say one or more words (not including" mama" and" dada") spontaneously. You can do speech therapy exercise. For few months. And constitutional homeopathic medicine will give you best result.
