Breastfeeding Your Child

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Jodhpur
Breastfeeding Your Child

Exclusive breastfeeding should be a rule for a baby till completed 6 months of age.
This means the child should be provided only breast milk for hunger and thirst till that age.

The only exception is medicines and supplements prescribed by child specialist.

If the mother feels child's requirement is not fulfilled, the opinion of doctors should be taken immediately.

Son is 3 years old and has the habit of keeping his tongue out most of the time. Was advised to wait and it will go with time but it doesn't seem to be improving. He speaks a lot and I don't see a problem with his speech except inability to say 'r' sound.

This habit will automatically be resolved. One thing to watch for is to observe exactly in what circumstances or situation he keeps it out. If nothing like that, no worries.

my 3 month baby sufferred by right para hipocampal ischemic .daily 7 to 8 times seizures will came, what is the treatement please tell me

Sad to hear tht dear parent. But equally strange is tht with such a diagnosis, i am sure your child is under care of sone neurologist or specialist, so rasimg this question in an open forum like this and that too with a general pediatrician, simply reflects the lack of ur faith in the treating team. Then how can you rely on an answer by sm1whim u dont kno and who has nt even seen ur child. My suggestion would be tostic to the treatimg team and do not change teams also too fequently as such medical issues require a lot of patience from both doctors and parents side. Wishing you a speedy recovery. Dr Vipul.

Of course cold things shall be avoided. Allergic problems have simple tactics to follow. If your baby is not comfortable with few things. Try to avoid it. Have proper hand hygiene and hygiene of oral cavity to avoid frequent infection. Tonsils and throat of babies are usually reactive to cold things and beverages so these precautions are needed till 8-10 years of age approximately. Regards.

Ideally child should entirely breast fed for the 1st 6 months. However if mothers milk is insufficient and cow's milk or formula feeds is started then. You can try small portion of ripe and mashed banana, chikoo, mango. Pears should be cooked and mashed.

She must be feeling dilated lactoferous ducts. Breastfeeding is usually not associated with any problem. Show to a gynecologist to rule out any local problems like infection.

If your baby is active, gaining weight properly, don't worry about vomiting. It will not affect his growth.

Your baby is under nourished. Give him home made fresh cooked food at frequent intervals. Teach him importance & need of food in growth and development. Avoid fast food rich in too much of fats. Leaving him amongst children dining together will help.

Start weaning food along with breastfeeding like khichuri, mashed banana, boiled potato and vegetables, dalia, suji, cerelac, chicken soup, green leafy vegetables cooked n make paste. If baby on breast milk only potty once in 2-3 days or 5-10 times a day is normal provided baby passing urine >6 times in a day and feeding well

MD - Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Palakkad
Allergic asthma is a very common presentation in the clinics these days. Patients usually present with allery to dust, smoke, spices etc which initiate sneezing progressing to itching in eyes, rhinitis (running nose), throat pain and eventually cough and difficulty in breathing.
in todays world it is almost imposssible to always avoid the allergen, so the better option is to strengthen the body to fight against these.
Ayurveda advocates certain daily regimens which can help in this.
1.Proper oral hygiene has to be maintained. Practice tooth brushing at morning and before bedtime. Ensure proper mouth wash after every meal.
2. Pratimarsh nasya - This is the practise of instilling oil in the nose. This can be practised easily by an individual. Instill 4-5 drops of sesame oil daily in each nostril and inhale deeply. This has to be practiced early in the morning.
3.Make a habit of applying Rasnadi powder (An ayurvedic medicated poweder) over the vertex immediately after bath and also at bedtime. Avoid sleeping directly under the fan or other cooling sources.
4. Intake of buttermilk processed with turmeric poder, curry leaves, ginger is also useful.
5. Add ginger, garlic esentially in all meals.
6. Yogic practices like breathing exercises can support the lung capacity and cleansing practices like neti can help in developing desensitization to allergens.
7. Drinking water should be boiled with cumin seeds and always consumed as lukewarm.
8. Oil massage before bath can help a lot. Sesame oil can be used for this, for those having frequent episodes of chest congestion muatard oil will give better results. Take bath in warm water only.

It is a normal behaviour observed in a few children. There is nothing to feel embarass about. You need to ignore it. Distract the child and try to engage him in some other activity and habit will die out. Stopping him will only reinforce his habit.

High fever is usually due to viral infection. It takes 3 to 4 days to settle down. Give paracetamol suspension 15mg per kg whenever there is fever which can be repeated once in 4 to 6 hours.

A baby can br massaged lightly after about two weeks of birth. Homemade butter or ghee can be used for massage, also coconut oil. But make not to smear too much oil and to massage with light hands.

Continue fevago for 3-5 days. If it is viral infection she will be fine. If no response then only think of blood test.
