Caring for Infants (0-1 yrs) Questions

Hi doctor. My daughter is one year old. She is going motion frequently whenever I feed her. So I started giving bifilac sachets with ors as a doctor suggested in our last visit. Is there any medicine which will improve her appetite. Please suggest. Also is there any alternative to nanpro formula milk? She passes motion immediately she has it. Why is it so? Thank you in advance.

It is normally due infantile irritable colon due to gastrocolic reflex baby defecate just after taking feed. It is not related to nanpro formula milk so you can continue with this or change cow's milk. U can give home made semisolid food products and avoid dairy products in excess.

Pls mam focus on your diet first of all, so that you can have better milk produced thereby baby can be fed don't use any formula milk now kindly. Try to take raw papaya with other vegs in boiled or stew form so that good amount will be secreted. Try this for atleast a month.

Cough and cold is the the natural defence mechanism of our body. During early childhood normal baby has also recurrent cough cold .every time medicine didnot work .it will take some times to get naturally cure .if baby is comfortable then don't worry about cough and cold also show him to some pediatrician if you hav any queries.

Lobate might not help if it is fungal infection. As of now please stop lobate. Your baby needs an ointment which is an anti fungal. Please get in touch with me so that I can help further by seeing the skin problem through pics. I will be able to prescribe the right anti fungal.

Do not take maxtra without doctors advice. It may do more harm than good. Neonates can deteriorate very fast. Ideally show a pediatrician nearby. If not possible, consult online. But take good not random advice.

My baby is 6 month old. He catches cold often. I use paracetamol syrup and t-manic syrup often. Can we use them often? It won't harm my baby?

Catching cold at this age is very common. Make your baby have warm water most of the times a day. Keep them hydrated. Introduce varied foods as he is 6 months nw. Make sure you build up their immunity thru natural foods. Do not rely so much on paracetamol n cold syrup.

My baby who is 9 months old had problem of spit up like curdled since birth but it was cured by itself on 6th month itself. By the 6 month of age, as I offered cow milk with adding water, diarrhea 4 times green color cloudy and mucus and large quantity of vomiting happened thrice on a same day. So paediatrician sir understood the symptoms and told about it's case of dairy intolerance. I have offered paneer and curd too same thing happened. We are very tensed. Neither of us nor any members in our families have this kind of allergy. Now for a try I offered 3-4 drops of buffalo ghee with rice on daily basis since last week, but shown no consequence so with happily I offered paneer yesterday again diarrhea and vomiting started. Can't see my child like this. After 3 months I saw his vomits so feeling so depressed. He was on exclusive breast feeding. Now I am giving him family food. Also his birth weight was 3.75 n now 9th month weight is 9 kg. Playful and active child. Will it be cured? Tell me when to give dairy products? What can I do to cure this problem of my son? Please guide me. P.s I am on regular diet. No cut on diary items. Still giving breast milk only. No side effects of dairy which I consume.

It seems a case of lactose intolerance. It doesn't happen with ghee. It can happen to anyone. Do not worry. Continue breast milk till he is 2 years old and if he is not showing any problem with it. Start giving him solid food apart from milk, paneer and curd. If you eat egg then give him 1 egg yolk. Introduce 1 food at a time and give it in small amount. Instead of milk you can give him whey powder but start with 1 tsp in water.
