This is normal to pass 3-4 stool per day. Nothing to worry. If baby is passing loose and watery stool then consult to pediatrician.

A nine month old is ready to eat from the family pot provided that the food is non spicy and wholesome. Offer the baby whatever is cooked in the house. Regular foods like dal, rice, khichri, mashed roti, boiled egg etc can be started. You can also give suji kheer, halwa, soups (Veg and non Veg) and chappatis soaked and mashed in dal,soup or dahi. A small amount of extra butter or ghee may be added to in the food. This adds to caloric value and helps the child gain weight. Fruits such as banana/mango can be given. Breast feeding should be continued.
7-8 kg at 9 months is good weight at this age. It is not necessary to add powdered badam etc. The tiny particles of badam can cause problems. Wait till the child at least one year old.

If you feel the baby breaths abnormally during feeding kindly meet a child specialist for confirmation. Also better to give only breastfeeding till 6 months of age. Kindly discuss position and attachment while breastfeeding with your pediatrician. Happy Parenting.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) - 3 Ways To Get It Treated!

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) - 3 Ways To Get It Treated!

The anterior cruciate ligament is one of the most delicate yet vital ligaments that holds the knee bones in place and stabilizes the movement. Injury to the ligament, on account of a sprain, can prove to be a cause of severe distress. This may lead to a partial or a complete destabilization of the knee joints and impair the normal movements to a great extent. 

Causes 
Some of the most common causes of this sort of a ligament tear are accidental injuries during a sporting activity, unexpected collision or incorrect body postures. This is a fairly common occurrence among the athletes. However, the physiological and neuromuscular controls make women more susceptible to damage to the Anterior Cruciate Ligament than men. 

There are two cruciate ligaments in our body, i.e. the anterior and the posterior cruciate ligaments. They run in crosses to connect the insides of the knee joints. They regulate the back and forth movement of your knees. They therefore, may incur substantial damage through sudden movements like jerks or an abrupt change of direction; the degree of tear may vary from minor strains to complete detachment. Accordingly, treatments are available to cure the distress. The treatments may either be surgical or nonsurgical, depending about the extent of the injury as well as the age of the patient. A complete tear in the ligament necessitates surgery for recovery. However, one may choose to opt for other non - surgical methods....... 

Some of the most effective treatments for a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament have been enlisted below: 

  1. Bracing: Wearing a brace or using a crutch for the purpose of movement can accord the knees with some stability. It also keeps the joints intact and alleviates pain
  2. Physiotherapy: Once the inflammation reduces, you may opt for physiotherapy to restore movement and reduce the pain. Heat and Ice therapies work as ideal adjuvants to physiotherapy in such cases. 
  3. Surgery: Regrowth of the anterior cruciate ligament is not possible and hence reconstruction using tendon graft by surgery is needed. Knee caps and adequate rest accord better rehabilitation. The recovery is faster and steadier in this process.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
