You can give her milk with oats/ dalia/ suji kheer. You can also make smoothies with nuts. You can make khichri in semi soft form. Better will be to introduce new meal at this time. This is her growth time, she needs proper growth meal at this time.

Hello Dr. is it safe to give marie gold biscuit or other biscuit to babies daily my baby is 6 month old.
Yes, it is safe. At age of six months mashed in milk, but personally, I will not recommend biscuits as they are processed food. Complementary feeding is initiated for babies for their adequate growth and development. I will suggest you consult a pediatric dietician for guidance regarding the same in detail. Thanks and regards dietician sanchita.

You should focus on looking for the cause of decreased breastfeeding eg: whether there is some breast problem or baby sleep s after feeding fo r about 10 -15 min. It will be a concern if baby gets lethargic, dehydrated hence you need to monitor for those.

Hello sir/madam, I am supritha from karnataka. I have a query about my nephew's boy baby. He is 9 months and 11 days old now. He never consumed breast milk, just for a month he consumed breast milk, so we fed him millet. Approximate when he was 7 months old he was about 66 cm in height, so we gave him pediasure. Total he consumed 600 grams of pediasure, approximate he consumed pediasure for 1 and 1/2 month, now he is 9 months 11 days old, and his height is 73 cm, that pediasure was about for 2+ years kids. He has been suffering from fever for the past 1 week and stretching his body 6-7 times just in a minute. We gave him paracetamol 500 mg, where we divided the tablet into 4 parts and gave him 4 hours once but the fever didn't decrease. So we consulted a nearby doctor, we never informed them about the pediasure consumption near the doctor, but because of the fever (102°) they admitted the baby to the hospital and they suggested 'meftagesic-ds' and 'meftal-spas' (syrup) .he is discharged but if we stop giving him medications, again fever is rising high, and still, he is stretching his body a lot & not consuming food (millet) and he is soo dull, sleeping a lot. We don't know if it is a side effect of pediasure or anything, please kindly suggest information. It will help us a lot.

This is not a side effect of pediasure. Child needs to be evaluated thoroughly by proper history taking and neurological examination to rule out seizures.

As per mine knowledge her weight is appropriate as per her age. Complementary feeding is started at 6 months of age along with breast feeding. We can serve the baby with blended or mashed banana / vegetable soups/dal soups/ mashed potato/ pureed fruits/ dal rice mixture and much more. During complementary feeding it's important to include minimum four food groups for e.g. Cereals, pulses, green leafy vegetables, fats and oils, fruits and vegetables. At the end I will suggest you to consult a qualified pediatric dietician. She will plan a complementary meal plan for your growing infant. Healthy nutrition at this stage plays a very important role for the growth of baby. Take care dietitian sanchita.

Agar last baar infection jo hua thha woh 3 maheene pehle 3 maheene ki umar pe hua thha, aur beech mein baby theek raha, to zaroori nahin ki is baar ki cough aur runny nose serious beemari ho. Har type ka viral khansi zukam poori tarah theek hone mein time lagata hai. Agar 5 din se dheere dheere behtar ho raha hai, aur bachcha doodh theek se pee raha hai aur khel bhi raha hai to yeh lakshan hain ki beemari theek ho rahi hai. Lekin agar 5 din mein zyada fayda nahin, ya aur koi samasya hai jaise bache ka sust hona. To pas ke doctor ko dikhana chahiye taaki woh bachche ka chest aur baaki check up kar sakein. Jo cheez bachche ko apne saamne check karne mein pata chalti hai, woh poori tarah se online nahin pata chal sakti.

Loose motions take some time to subside, even with the best of care. The gut takes time to return to normal. In the meantime, it is important to ensure that adequate oral fluids are being given to prevent dehydration. If the child does not have features of dehydration like sunken eyes, excessive thirst, or decreased urine output, the disease is likely to slowly settle. Changing from a bottle to a katori-spoon to give milk decreases the chances of recurrent upset stomach.

My baby is born in 37th week 1.6 kg weight only due to my gestational bp. Now my baby weight is 3.4 kg running 3 months 16 days. I used 30 sachets of lactodex hmf in this mean time. doctor recommended formula milk, fat oil in mother milk and to stop lactodex hmf. But I do not want to give formula milk. Is it safe to continue lactpdex hmf only for 1 more month?

May be less melatonin in your breast milk, add eggs in your diet, keep surroundings bit comfortable for baby.
