Hi Sir, After which month baby started walking by her own or without the support.
Every child's growth pattern is different. Usually babies start taking their first step between 9 and 12 months. Initially they will take no more than 1 or 2 steps while taking support. They start walking independently while that are 14 or 15 months old. But some children even take longer till 16 - 17 month.

Why little water comes out of kids mouth While sleeping. Is it because of a stomach full.

Why little water comes out of kids mouth While sleeping. Is it because of a stomach full.
A peaceful and generally content baby who foams at the mouth in her sleep should not raise alarm bells. This could be for few of the reason. 1. Baby may be taking in too much food too quickly or not not having been burped properly. You can try reducing the amount of food given to the baby and ensure a good long burping time. 2. Your baby may have reflux. Some amount of undigested milk remains in the stomach, which would give a reflux action.

We prefer exclusive breastfeeding up to six months. If must, you can give undiluted cow milk but formula feed will be better than cow milk, as it is fortified with essential nutrients and will be of consistent quality.

If there is no difficulty in passing stools you need worry about infrequent stools. Increase the amount of fibre and give adequate water.

Hello lybrate-user, The symptoms you have described certainly point towards a neurological problem. Repeated vomiting is often caused by increased pressure around the brain (Medical term- Intracranial Pressure) and leads to 6th nerve palsy, which means squinting of one or both eyes towards the nose. Patching is done so that child does not suffer from double vision. Spectacles have no role in this. In most conditions, These nerve palsies recover spontaneously in few months without squint surgery. However, you need to keep a close watch on the child's general condition. In case of any abnormal behaviour, consult a neurologist/ pediatric neurologist. Feel free to contact me in case of any doubt. I would like to see the child's photograph before and after developing the squint to guide you better.

Better to stick on to breast feeding. Sometimes babies pass stools once in 4-5 days especially if fed with artificial milk. No need to worry for 1 day.

I am using nasivion drops which helps him breath easily and again after 12 hours the nose gets blocked. I am also applying him eucalyptus oil but it's not stopping.
