M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
What do you mean by milk buster? Is it flow from other breast you are worried about, It's normal when you are overwhelmed by feeling of love to your child. Relax and enjoy! If it is anything else, let me know.

Hello. Firstly, try to stop breastfeeding. It will cause some trouble for few days. Bear it. Next, donot force her to eat. That will make her averse to food. Sit together on a dining table and give her a separate plate and spoon. Serve food and let her enjoy it by herself. It will be messy at times, but enjoy it. If she is hungry, she will eat. You and your family also join together at meals. It will automatically develop her eating habits. Happy parenting Regards

Hi sir I have a 4 month old daughter who is suffering from hydrocephalus what are the treatment and where it possible.
If tbe immediate neonatal period wss uneventful, it is more likely to be a congenital hydrocephalus. As the bairn is growing fast in this age. Hydrocephalus needs immediate surgical correction by a ventriculo peritoneal shunt.

Pulp therapy is absolutely safe however the child should be supportive or it can also be done in general anaesthesia. As he is 4 years old, that teeth should be saved till the permanent teeth come, and the treatment will not affect the eruption of permanent teeth.

If you are feeding your baby then this type of menstruation problem is seen in mothers. Menses comes after 2 to 3months but you may also conceive during this period so use contraception.

Weight depends upon the birth weight. Birth weight is regained at 2 weeks. After that increases at a rate of 30 grams per day.

My new born kids have problem with two eyes always falling water.

Pediatrician,
My new born kids have problem with two eyes always falling water.
This is because of nasolacrimal duct having not opened in the newborn you have to massage down near the corner where eye ends close to nose. This will open the patency of duct. Cipro is antibiotic and not good for the newborn. Ask me personally for personalized guidance on child matters.

By this time you should have introduced most of the foods what we eat. Now you can introduce all the semisolids like porridge and mashed vegetables and fruits one after the other.

Dear lybrate-user, you have not mentioned the birthweight of your baby----was it the same or less. This is important for the doctor to decide if the baby is growing normally. Many mothers mistake the nasal sounds that baby makes while feeding, as cold and cough. Babies on only mother's milk do not catch colds easily, esp at that age of 3 weeks. Please have him assessed by a doctor for cold. Vomiting or regurgitation is common in babies and not a cause for concern if baby is sucking briskly, feeding well and passing urine 8to 10 times a day and stools of breastfed babies are usually loose. Do not worry too much and relax and enjoy your baby instead of spending too much time on google to see what is wrong with your baby. Feed your baby as often as she asks and not by the clock. This will go a long way to increase milk production.

Normally the secretion of mouth come up in babies and need not be phlegm as you think . Phlegm comes in chest infection and is yellow in colour. YOu only need to wipe of the salival that form up in mouth as do in all babies

I have a kid who will soon turn 3. I'm so worried that she doesn't put on weight. Birth weight was 2.36 kgs. Uptill year 1 she gained well Theron it's minimal. Now too she weigh btw 10.6 to 10.80. Somehow each time I feel she will gain weight, she falls sick and loses weight. Hence her weight always stays within 11 kgs. She is otherwise a super active baby. My ped advised pediasure but nothing. Trying to get her eat the list given by a dietician but no results. I am worried.

There is no wonder drug/safe drug for the child so that they keep on eating. Weight of the child as per requirement should have been around​ 13 -14 kg. Instead of becoming more worried try to enroll variety in the food with 2hrly feeds for the baby. Also do not repeat the same food daily keep on changing. If the child is taking 2 glass of milk then its ok if not then enroll milk products in diet like paneer, shrikhand etc. Give halva, sweets etc along with dry fruits also. Give seasonal fruits. If there is difficulty is swallowing then give semisolid food after grinding in the mixer. Always give home-based food. At the end if the baby is getting ill again and again kindly meet you pediatrician to rule out immunodeficiency diseases.

Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication There will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly And spine block works for six months
