Dear sir/madam, My baby girl born on 15th may 2018, but on 18th may 2018 she admitted at hospital for jaundice. 20th may 2018 she discharged from hospital. But I'm confused about polio dosage, because the hospital authority not satisfied me that, whether they gave any polio dosage like hepatitis B or bcg etc or not! So please give some of your valuable suggestion.

Polio, BCG and Hepatitis are all different vaccinations. They should have mentioned it in your vaccination card whether its given. If you are still not sure better get another dose of the vaccination. There will no harm in giving extra dose even if it has been goven previously but do not miss vaccination.

Antibiotics are to be given after proper diagnosis. They are not the drugs for all types of diarrheas. Different etiologies need different treatment. I typically use zinc and ors in appropriate doses unless cause is found out.

Nasoclear nasal drops are to be used: whenever you felel the nose is stuffy, or there is noisy breathing, or there is difficulty in feeding. This happens especially when the temperature is low, during the evening times.In such situations, use the drops before each feed. Otherwise no need to use compulsorily daily. At this age babies sleep 18-20 hours daily. They sleep in the lap better because there is mother's warmth. Alternatively you can swaddle the baby snugly.

You have to start ROTAVIRUS vaccine before 3 month 14 days of age. For pneumonia no such age restrictions but 3 doses needed before 6 Month & if you start after 6 Month 2 dose plus 1 booster at 15 month.

My baby is 8 months old and after a recent visit to the doctor for a routine check-up, he advised to take Uprise D3 (60K) 5 ml and give 1 ml to baby everyday for just 5 days. When I was taking this medicine along with other medicine the chemist informed me that it is of very high power. I am confused a bit because I have been giving calshine-P 0.5 ml (~400IU) to my baby everyday since her birth. Please suggest if I administer the Uprise D3 60K 1 ml (~12K IU) to my baby for 5 days or not and why he could have suggested this?

The doctor suggested vit D3 for only five days only. This will cover up if any deficiency is there. However the regular dose of 400iu dose per day is more than sufficient. You have to be aware. Of condition called Hypervitamlnosis vit D and so continue the normal dose which you have been giving earlier at a dose of 400iu.
