I have a 4 month old baby girl. Since her birth I m being advised to give some jari buti like jaifal, harrad, haldi, badaam, gold silver in form of liquid to her. Is it really good to give these things to such a small kid.

For a 4 month old bay, Ms. Lybrate-user, nothing other than breastmilk is needed and all these are just popular belief with no scientific evidence. Happy parenting.

Hi if baby doesn't poo for even a week it's normal but if baby is having any problem like vomiting, decrease milk intake, pain or straining while passing motion then you need to consult a doc.

My daughter Jinia is 4 years old and has been grinding her teeth during sleep for last 1 week. Her urine also smells foul and she started urinating too frequently. Kindly suggest.

Doctor of Medicine
Pediatrician, Chennai
Hello, small kids grinding their teeth is called bruxism, its normal till 5yrs. In some kids it may indicate some form of stress. But usually nothing to be done. Regarding her urinary symptoms, if she has pain or cries during urinating or has fever, better to get urine tested. Being a girl child, it may be urinary infection.

My son's age is 5. He has dust allergy normally he starts to cough a lot but in india doctor used to give Allegra and it used to work. Last 5 months back shifted to London. For the last 15 days onwards, he is constantly coughing but very less during the night time but the coughing increases after having any food or milk. The doctors are saying the chest is clear and has given ventilin evohaler.

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
As the chest is clear and ventilin evohaler is not showing benifit, you can try allegra surup again. As the cough is after feed, every care should be taken that child is not aspirating during feed, which can occur if feed taken in hurry or in faulty posture.

Its too early to expect so much from a child so keep calm he will overcome this problem. Almost all children have different mental abilities and memory powers. As they grow old they will develop and adapt themselves. So have patience.

Most of children doesn't need and sleep most of time. Still if child cry, you can use filtered water or 5% glucose. With all cleanliness.

My baby boy is around 4 and half months old. He refuses to take milk from right breast suddenly. He fusses when I put him in my right breast. I am worried whether I ll end up with low milk supply. Please advise.

Pediatrician, Vijayawada
Nothing like that. Just empty whole breast at a time. Then only go for other. Apply olive oil gently to the nipples and areola. Do not worry. Watch some nursing videos in youtube. God bless u.

As you are suffering from asthma,get yourself investigated,specially a PFT test PFTshould be done to know the severity of asthma. As asthma is inflamatory disorder of airways,you need to take combination of formetrol and budesonide by inhalation.you may have to take medicine for a long time.Kindly discontinue allegra if not having running nose,sneezing or nasal block.

Hello Sir, My name is rinkal and I am a breastfeeding mother of 1.3 years baby. I am suffering from headache since December 2015. And I am having a problem of depression after my father's death I July 2015. I became angry and nervous which cause my hands and lips shiver. Due to this I became week also. I have loose too much weight and forgotten to smile, and to talk to others.

Hi lybrate-user sadness and strain of a new baby+your loss can all cause tremendous pressure on you both physically and mentally. There's a saying that if a birth and death occurs closely the soul doesn't leave and is actually reborn. Your father's blessing will always be there with you. Your child us totally dependant on you and that's a very large responsibility that makes all new moms cranky. Don't be hard on yourself. Have a balanced diet, plenty of water and fluids mother's diet. Then she should have 1800 to 2200calorie perday yo breastfeed comfortably. She can have 5 portions of fruits whatever us seasonally available preferred during day time. Drink plenty of water 4 to 6 lper day. Water is important for hydration and good flow of milk. Apples, papaya, my samba, banana are all good. Ask her to have dry fruits few pieces twice a day. (almond+kishmish) plenty of green veggies. Good protein source with each meal (no soya). Additional 550 calorie more than your regular diet. Extra protein of at least 12 to 18 gram +50 gram of normal protein. Daal, chana iron+calcium/vitd3supplements. This is the general plan for a more detailed plan. I would need your bodyweight and height work level (sedentary/working) regular diet that you have tests. Cbc with esr serum calcium and 25 (oh) vitd3 levels sleep when baby sleeps. Meditate for 10 minutes do something you love everyday pray things will get better hope this helps.

DNB (Pediatrics), MBBS

You have not mentioned height. Birth weight etc. First rule out pathological causes n get tested. Like hemogram. Lft. Kft. Xray wrist for bone age. Tft. Anti ttg n s. Ig a. Rule out systemic disorder. If all of these are normal then show to an pediatric endocrinologist. Regarding diet. Everything you eat should b given.

Since baby is ok but passing stool 8 to 9 times that too after feed is not abnormal if gaining weight properly. It is due to gastrocolic reflex. Your baby is still short of expected date of delivery by 9 days. If he is being fed properly, he must be weighing about 2700 gm now if his birth wt was about 2200 gm. So need not to worry otherwise consult doctor.

It's called growing pain, many children keep complaining at night time. Apply some analgesic balm. If pain is more you can give paracetamol 250 mg at bedtime.

I have tinnitus and loss of hearing in right ear, I read at one place on internet that there is some medicine for this in homeopathy. Can any one help me in this regard

This is a case of tinnitus. I think you need further investigation to look for cause for tinnitus. This problem may be due to ear problem, hypertension or because of neurological disorder.

Is watching porn and masturbating right for me?(I'm 16 years old. Does it cause any harm to my health or stamina and does it affect my concentration and cause distraction in studies? It wastes lot of my time and I feel a bit guilty after doing it. What should I do? Stop it completely (which is very hard for me) or continue it and do it once in 2-3 days?

Masturbating and watching porn is part of adolescence, but as you mentioned you r feeling distracted and lacking concentration in studies. So need to curtail the time of watching porn.
