My Question is 1) After taking synthetic hormone is her body able to develop its own hormone one day? 2) Let she takes synthetic hormone life long but what happen when she will be a mother her self.

lybrate-user ji, Thanks for the query. For congenital hypothyroidism only treatment is to supplement Levothyroxine in adequate dosage. EVen though it is a synthetic hormone, it hardly causes any side effects or any problems for the person who takes it. Once the treatment is commenced, T4 and TSH should be checked at every 4 to 6 weeks interval. Plus childs growth and should also be monitored. Once the child is stabilsed then TSH should be checked once 3 months or do. If y 3 years child does not show any thyroxine secretion (can be tested by stopping the dose for a few weeks) then Levothyroxine needs to be given for lifetime. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

Keep surroundins clean. As kids got irritation in their gums, when tooth erupt. So they tend to put fingers or toys in their mouth. So you should frequently wash your kid's hands n toys.

My daughter is 3 months old. Currently she is on mother's feed n formula milk. But majorly on formula feed. We are giving Similac IQ+ Stage 1 to her. She is perfectly fine in her routine activities. I am slightly concerned about her weight. Her birth weight was 2.9 KG n currently she is 6.8 KG. Is it fine or weight gain is on higher side? Can we switch to mother dairy double toned milk? Which milk is best for her?

See first you do not use gripe water. It contains alcohol. And the evening colic is a quite normal in newborns. Do not worry about it. you can use colic aid. you cannot completely remove his colic pain. It will decrease as the baby grows.
