Aagar baby ko loose motion lag jae to opium de sakte hai ya nahi. Agar dene k baad koi problem ho to kya kre.
Please take the baby to the doctor if the frequency of loose motions do not decrease. Keep feeding the baby. Keep checking for fever and any drowsiness.

Cough at night can be due to allergy and she needs allergy prevention by Levocet M syrup. Vomiting in cough due to straining abdomen by cough and cough need to be corrected for this. No separate treatment for vomiting.

Behalf of my wife am posting this question. Recently we are blessed with a baby girl. Delivery was not normal. My wife keep feeding for more than 30-40 mins. She keeps feeding else baby cries. Per day she feeds more times. Can someone pls advise what kind of food my wife have to take? We don't know really is this is a problem or milk is not enough for the baby from mother. How to check it? I heard moms use to feed for 10-15 mins. But in our case duration is not normal. Pls clarify us what we have to do.

Its perfectly normal to feed for 30/40 mins initially. Breast feeding is the biggest challenge that the new parent faces. As long as the baby is gaining weight as required her feeding is adequate.Just grit your teeth and be at it for the first 3 months...then it will be a cake walk!

Good question but no proven role of any particular therapy. Colour is solely depending upon genes. Not but food or therapy! regards.

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.

Most likely your daughter has allergic cough or frequent recurrent viral respiratory infections. I hope your daughter is not still bottle feeding, esp. At bedtime as this could be the reason for frequent cough. Cakes biscuits chips and chocolates are generally very high sugary foods and not recommended for daily consumption.

If the area bulges out like balloon causing restriction oflow you may need surgery. You can try pulling back skin even though it will be painful. Apply t bact ointment to prevent skin infection after it is broken by pulling. Ask privately.

Hello, Yes an anomaly scan and a targeted anomaly scan is being done at 18-20 weeks of gestation to find out such anomalies. But it is suggested that you both should get a genetic counselling done before planning another pregnancy.

Doctor my baby was born through force delivery with a good weight of 3.4kg, on 17th of January. Now he is 23 days, but for a few days I am observing that he feeds a lot, like continuously for 2-3 hours, and doesn't stop till the time he falls asleep. If stopped he cries continuously, doesn't stop. He also has disturbed sleep. I am worried what is happening to my baby, why he cries so much. Kindly help.

Initial three months baby will sleep full day disturbs at full night. So feed baby every two hourly. If baby is doing like that it means you not getting sufficient milk. Consult the Dr. To see wether you have sufficient milk to feed baby or not. If not then you need to start baby substitute milk. Once baby have full stomach he should sleep two hours and again feeding them playing them sleep this cycle of baby should be there.
