Pediatrician,
Dont make self medication to your child. Because medicines given by a pediatrician acccording to weigh, age and diaease condition to that child at that particular time only. Some medicines are contra indicated upto certain age groups. So its best way to skip sunday dinner outside but take medicines of your younger ones from pediatrician.

If it is not refractory rickets, legs may become normal. Give him vitamin D 60000 units once in a week for 4 weeks n calcium rich diet supplement with calcium 300 mg daily. Sun light between 10 to 2 for about 1 hour to bare body is useful.

Avoid All types of soap shampoo Talc Powder Oils for skin, opt for plane water bath Until then you can apply Crude petroleum Jelly twice daily in moist - wet skin. Deep acting Homeopathic Medicines if selected after thorough case study and analysis will help you in giving relief from cracks dryness and other symptoms. You can also take Homeopathic Medicines like petroleum 30, Sulphur 200 on prescription of homeopathic consultant only.

Dear mother suji and sagudana are good but for a two year old child this is inadequate. Besides these two give him food from family pot. That means whatever you all eat in breakfast and lunch and dinner should be given to the child also. For further query you can contact.

Hello mam. My baby has completed her two months but she is breastfeeding I want to know my proper diet what to eat or what to not for her better development please help me as me and her stomach not well we both passes gas so much.

Hello mam. My baby has completed her two months but she is breastfeeding I want to know my proper diet what to eat or...
Focus on eating whole grains and cereals, legumes, fresh fruits and vegetables. And go for foods that provide plenty of protein, calcium, and iron (and, as always, an occasional treat is fine). Traditionally, breastfeeding mums are given a lot of dried fruit, ghee and sugar. These high calorie foods usually were meant to supplement the khichdi diet that mums traditionally follow after birth. If you are eating normal food, you can leave out the extra ghee and sugar. Dried fruits are extremely healthy and used in most traditional confinement foods. Try having them without the ghee and sugar by putting them in your porridge (dalia) for example or in some kheer. This way your relatives will be happy that you are eating the traditional ingredients but you will not be loaded with the high calories. If you must eat the laddoos or panjiri you can reduce the calorie count by eating smaller portions. Some recipes could work well with lesser quantities of ghee and for others you could use a healthier alternative such as canola oil. If you are used to having aerated drinks to quench your thirst it is best to avoid these while breastfeeding. They contain just empty calories and no nutrition. You could instead substitute it with healthier drinks such as lassi, coconut water, buttermilk (chhaach), fresh fruit and vegetable juices or nimbu pani

The tiny tots must use a toothbrush with a small rounded brush head and soft bristles. It helps in cleaning their milk teeth thoroughly.

You have to check his thyroid by doing a tsh and then decide on medicines. Usually children are fussy and they will eat in due course.

If the fever subsides by itself, signify viral illness. 15 episode of self limiting viral illness may be considered normal in this age. Although we have to rule out other cause as well like bacterial and occult infection like urine infection etc. General measures include scheduled vaccination, proper hygiene, plenty of water and fruits. Weight is low normal as per age. If oral thrush, pharyngitis occurs then periodic fevers like PFAFA syndrome must be ruled out.
