Every 2-3 hourly feeds are must for a newborn baby to avoid significant weight loss-->. Meet your pediatrician asap and ofcourse you have to do check weight of your baby every 3 days. Sometimes infection or jaundice are the common cause of lethargy.

To be easier for understanding. Any diet which is green yellow or red in colour has lot of iron. Rich sources are jaggery. Beet, carrot, tomatoes. All green vegetables, pista ragi and sprout at some extent.

I would suggest you to take him to pediatrician and make sure everything is okay after the fall. This will also help you relax and not worry unnecessarily. If he is okay yoh will be at ease and if he needs any medical attention doctor will be able to help. Hope this helps wishing best for both you and your baby.

This finding by itself is suggesting umbilical for which no intervention is needed. This provisional advice provided by me stands subject to the actual examination of report/ image and is based entirely on inputs provided to me. It should be correlated with clinical findings.

Hello Dr. My baby girl is going to complete 2 months on 1st November. Today she did potty N her poop was bright green in colour. Yesterday she had mild fever N last month she had vaccines. (And in my diet I have included cow milk otherwise I never used to had cow milk as it causes gas. And I'm noticing my milk is more watery then before .) Is it normal or any matter of concern? Kindly reply. Waiting for response. Thank you.

If you are bottle feeding she may have got infection in stomach which explains fever and loose motion. YOu give maximum breast milk and other feed if you give give from a cup with spoon or a sipper . Do not use bottle and nipple

My kid is 7 year old. He shows a lot of anger when we said him to study and other things. What we do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
He needs to be gently and lovingly advised and do not shout and get angry with him which will make him rebel. If you cannot mange he should be shown to a child counsellor . But he is only 7 years and too young and hope that he will become normal as he grows up

My daughter age 3 year do not want to eat anything. We are mainly rice eaters. She is greedy for junk foods but do not want to eat the main course. Now a days if we force to take food she vomits after taking a little food. Please give me a solution of this problem. She is getting thiner and thiner day by day.

Pediatrician, Hyderabad
Once children get habituated to junk food, its difficult to manage, parents need to deal such situation with love. Not forcefully feed her, just give her options or awards for eating normal food or diet instead of junk food. Ask her what she wants to eat, and try to prepare it at home.

I have a one year old grand -daughter, but she has not started walking yet ! . She is apparently , quite normal , very active but when we lift her we can feel that her bones are quite flexible, rather delicate. Unlike other children who have supple , firm bones . We have afforded her the best diet that is possible . What can be the reason?

Not walking by one year of age is not too late. Some children will have little delayed milestones. In one to two months he will start walking if not with physiotherapy it will be get corrected. Do not compare with other children. Nothing like hard or soft bones will be there.

All above actions may be observed in some otherwise healthy children. No treatment needed, just encourage children to be more active physically.

Blood might be due to abrasions in the anus because of hard stools but gripe water can be given to soften the stools

Hello Doctor my son is 3 year old he is suffering from sneezing. What I should take care of him.

MBBS
General Physician,
Baby having sneezing problem may be due to exposure to old climate and could be allergic to envirnement particle so you have to see that the child is not exposed to cold climate. Give plenty of water and fluid to drink. Best thing to consult a child specialist to rule out any rhinitis problem.

How to given cough syrup in children.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician,
As cough in children is due to accumulation of sputum which can not be brought out easily and airways are narrow you need to give a bronchodilator and an expectorant. You should not try to suppress it.
