You have to add one ounce (28 Ml) of clean and boiled water to one level spoon of powder and feed with a spoon and not bottle. You can take more powder and proportionate amount of water s needed.

My daughter is about to be 9 years old. Since the age of 5/6 years she has been seen rubbing her genital portion. What could be the likely cause and what as a parent should we do?

Finding your child touching or rubbing his genitals can be very disturbing to parents who mistakenly believe that small children don't have any sexual feelings. These parents may consider the behavior a bad habit, but most of the time, it's not. Babies discover their genitals just as they learn about other body parts -- by reaching for them -- and then learn that they are a source of pleasurable sensations. The innocent repetition of what feels good is an entirely normal part of the process of self-discovery and play. Yet many adults harbor conflicted feelings about masturbation, viewing it as somehow immoral or unhealthy. When parents overreact to genital exploration, a toddler can conclude there is something wrong with him.So as a parent never react negatively when you find her rubbing her genitals but at that time try to distract her mind in some other activity.

Whenever you take your meal, give him a little of food as just for sake of to develop taste and repeat whenever you get opportunity several time in a day but do not force to eat. Thus he may develop taste and may start eating. Continue breast feed. Iron has nothing to do with this problem. One brand of iron is sufficient.

The best solution is brava and fat grafting to your breasts which will increase the size and improve the tightness without breast scars. The other method is breast by implants by making a cut in each breast.

Please look whether or not child is having any yellowish discoloration of skin or eyes or urine, also check whether child has passed stools or not, is there any abdominal distension or is there is pain abdomen. If answer to all these qustions is no chances of seious health issues are less. Then you can use antiemetics and antacids for few days as prescribed by a pediatrician.

Sometimes isolated speech delay can normally be present till 3 years of age. You must rule out hearing defect by an audiometry.

History and results suggest some kind of acute chest infection. Recurrent infections are common as same chest infection can be caused by different viruses. As children lack immunity, they have infections more commonly than adults till the immune system is ready. If the previous infection cleared completely before the second infection, it is most likely a viral infection. It is better to consult a pediatrician to listen to chest.

SIr ,for a three and half year child who does not have any skin problem, no specific soap is recommended. You could use any soft soap. Brands such as pigeon are very expensive and need not be used.

Do no worry. Mostly viral fever to start with is high grade and settles in 3 to 4 days. You can give paracetamol sos. If your child is well looking most fever subside without any antibiotics. If fever is persistent or there are abnormal symptoms like vomiting drowsiness loose motion then consult your pediatrician.

दिन में कई बार बच्चे खाना खाते ही potty जाते है जो की नार्मल है।। आप बस ये देखें की potty बहुत पतली तो नहीं है। अगर जयादा पतली है तो सबसे पहले जीवन रक्षक खोल (Ors) शुरू कर दे और आसपास के किसी अच्छे डॉक्टर की सलाह ले।।

Persist with breast feeding. Cry is not always because of hunger. It takes time for baby to adjust after birth. Take paediatricians opinion, some times calcium will help to reduce irritability.

Hi I feel that your child is lacking emotional support. Sit with her and talk to her politely and ask her why she is doing all these things. Find out the reason behind her actions. When a child lies to her parents, it may be because of your strict discipline. She feels scared to share with you. Spend quality time with your child and understand her. Teach her how to behave. For every good behaviour give reward. Do not delay the reward, it should be in the form of appreciation, tokens, gifts or taking her out etc. Make a behaviour chart for her. This will help you.

Thumb sucking these months is acceptable, may be due to teeting. Last 3 days may she have diarrea, look for dehydration. Consult doctor with baby.

Hello, Baby cry when being put down on bed, being separated from her caregiver makes her feel that some thing is  different going on depriving her the affection of her mother. ▪how can she really ignore that she is being put down from the lap of her mother as she misses the softness of nature & body of her mother •smell of the body •breathing chest of her mother •the affectionate motherly touch as well. •here begins the  feeling of insecurity for the baby. ●Baby, misses  the temperature of the body of her mother waking her up while being put down. Henceforth, Baby should be wrapped up in a blanket while putting her down keeping her body warm. ●baby is not accustomed to pee or poop what she has to learn in due course of time so it's a natural phenomenon for an infants to cry while passing urine or stool. Your feedback matters ,please. The care.
