Hello Doctor, I am having Hypothyroid and breastfeeding my infant. Earlier before pregnancy my thyroid level used to remain normal by taking Thyronorm 75 mcg however, Doctor advice me to take Thyronorm 100 mcg during pregnancy to keep thyroid level balanced and to continue it till 3 months after baby born. Now 3 months after my delivery, I checked the thyroid level which were slightly reduced from the normal and doctor advised 75 mcg as a remedy. I would like to ask whether breastfeeding is advisable in this situation? Does my infant can get affected by it? Does my infant can develop the thyroid problems considering my intake of medicine? Kindly provide me a healthy solution.

Let me make it very clear to you - optimizing your own thyroids will only be helpful to the health of your baby. I prefer to prescribe compounded thyroids (containing both T3 as well as T4) for my patients along with optimizing metabolic parameters mainly through therapeutic doses of nutraceuticals.

Its normal for new borns to loose some weight in initial few weeks, after this they gain. If her urine output is good, she is well fed. Stools are variable, new borns can have many in a day or none for many days. Wrapping / clothing should be in accordance to climate.

If your baby has normal skin and no allergies you can go for a mixture of milk and turmeric too once a week .1 small bowl milk with 2 pinch turmeric after a oil massage. It will keep skin soft and infection free. And sebamed soap is good for kids.

My son is 7 weeks old. Whenever I breastfeed him he takes out all the milk from nose and mouth even after I finish off with his burp. And cries continuously the whole day. He does not like when I wrap him also. What exactly can it be?

Bringing out milk is normal in the babies. Don’t put the baby down immediately after feeding, carry him with head slightly up for 10-15 min, this will prevent vomiting. If he is vomiting more than 50% of the feed and not gaining weight, then he as to be investigated for other problems. Don’t wrap too much, babies like to kick the legs and move the hands .over wrapping increases temperature and makes the baby very uncomfortable, so they might cry.

As per your history it appears to be chronic Febrile illness. The doctors must have advised you for blood reports. If the blood reports are non suggestive of any disease then we have to go for bone marrow examination to find the cause of fever of unknown origin. You can discuss this things with your doctor. Also as she is not gaining weight it is important to keep a check on the diet that she is taking your doctor will help you in this also.

Hi doctors usually will not endorse any beauty products in their practice. And I don't think changing of soap will bring back the complexion all of a sudden. Continue the same one you are using. It's not always the soap which will make babies dark. Be happy with baby. Enjoy life with your baby. Thanks.

The amount of sleep a child takes after birth varies from child to child. It is not important what is the amount of sleep that the child is taking. He is sleeping at night or is active at night it doesn't matter. If child is gaining good amount of weight is playful is taking feeds properly and after feeds sleeps adequately need to worry. If the weight gain is 15 to 20 grams per day the amount of urine passage per day is 6 to 7 times no need to worry. Also this variation in sleep (that is if a child sleeps more in day and his Activa playfull at night) persist for 1 to 2 years of age. Kindly discuss with your pediatrician the problems of your child for better understanding. Duration of breastfeeding is not important demand feeding should be given in the baby feels hungry she should be breastfed.
