Calpol contains Paracetamol which is for fever and pain. Also better to show to a child specialist before taking any meds. Nasal saline drops would be a safe option for nasal blockage and sneezing.

Before 6 months if baby has been exclusively breastfed then chances of infection are rare. If outside milk is going on better to sterilize the containers before using it toncut down chances of infection. You can give zinc dose of which will be given by your doctor. You can plan to send investigation stool RM to see for any infection in stool and as per report start a treatment. Due to teething during this stage of life infant place their hands in their mouths leading to infection and later diarrhoea so try to keep hands and surface of the child clean. Also keep the toys clean as many times children pick infection from these toys also.

Teething usually leads to irritation in the gums as a result all the children place different objects in their mouth this leads to infection and later diarrhoea. The main treatment of prevention method that you can apply is keep the hands of child clean keep the surface clean keep toys clean and all the people who are holding or touching the baby their hands should be clean. As as she is having only motions 2 to 3 times per day and vomiting better to consult a pediatrician for the same. You will need only antiemetics ORS and Zinc for the treatment. Since there is no fever and blood in stool antibiotics may not be required .the final diagnosis will be made by a doctor after detailed history and examination.

This is common phenomenon seen in newborn and usually persist till 5 to 6 month of age. The nasoclear you are using is saline water to dissolve the mucus and clear the secretions and at the end clear the pathway. This many time is seen during temperature changes of surrounding of the child ie morning, in AC room etc. Avoid making swift temperature changes in the baby's surrounding.

Usually it is advised to give breastfeeding minimum for 2 years. If it is given beyond that better to give only at night. Also when the baby is feeling hungry try to give solid food first and then give something to drink. She should at least eat One Katori food 4 times daily and 2 times snacks light diet. Also if she is not taking milk then you can give her Milk products like Dahi that is called curd then buttermilk paneer and all other products that are made from milk. While giving food to the baby it is important that you stay by the side of the baby and give the baby food very slowly. Be patient that the baby completes her food as slow as it takes. Never ever be angry on the child as this spread negativity and the baby will dislike the food even more there are no magic medicines without side effects which will lead to weight gain so at the end it is mainly up to the parents to give food to the baby also you can give the food divided in small quantity and make sure that the baby completes her share. Never force her to eat. Give variety of food. Involve her in small kitchen activities. This also makes the child more active in participation and at the end of work will also enjoy the food that you have prepared along with her. Participation in food making helps her to like what has been made and at the end of work will also enjoy the food that has been prepared. Last give more and more variety. If she dislikes one particular recipe you can again repeat it after one week.

10 days back I fed a stray cat by pouring a glass of milk in cats bowl. Im not sure if the glass touched cats bowl or some droplets spilled on the glass. My daughter who is 18 and half months old exactly after an hour picked the glass from the table and put it in mouth. What are the possibilities of rabies transmission here. Does she need booster dose now? It is exactly 5 months since she received her 4 dose of rabies vaccine in october for another nonbite exposure. This time out of anxiety I took her to my pediatrician and insisted her for a booster dose but she said boosters are recommended only after a year and that rabies is not a routine vaccine and there would be many side effects. As far as I read 2 Booster doses are recommended after the second exposure right. Am I putting my daughter at risk. Is there a time frame in which boosters are not required for the second exposure. I know exposure is highly unlikely in my case. But me being a paranoid mom want to ease my mind by understanding the logic here. Does my daughter who is just 1 and half years old have enough immunity against rabies without a booster?

As per your history there are very very very less chances that the rabies virus would have travelled from the cats saliva (also here we do not know if the cat has rabies) into the milk and from the milk into the baby's mouth which might have somewhere a break in the mucous membrane leading eventually to a rabies virus inside the body through the breach in the mucous membrane. The chances are definitely very very less. Rabies is a lethal disease and there are no contraindications for post-exposure. Post-exposure prophylaxis in previously vaccinated children: Children who have received previously full rabies postexposure prophylaxis or pre-exposure vaccination should be given only two booster doses, on days 0 and 3. Kindly discuss with your pediatrician.

My daughter is 6.5 years old she is having pneumonia her wbc count went high to 26500 She is hospitalized now for 8 days We have a blood test now her count shows 17600 how long it will take to normal her wbc What is a normal range for wbc of child of 6 yrs.

MD Pediatrics

On an average basis it should be between 4000 to 11,000. May sometimes differ by laboratory standards. Since repeat count is on the decresing trend its a good sign if we go by the reports. Clinically childs condition/recovery will be informed by your Dr. Hoping for her quick recovery.

If you have given azithromycin for 6 days already then no need to repeat it. Whether its simple allergic cough or infective cough will be differentiated by your doctor. Antibiotics like azithromycin are given for infective cough. Any other antibiotics needs to be given or not will also be decided by your doctor. Precautions- regular handwash of bsby and all thr people who are in contact with the baby. Also in babies environment there should not be major temperature changes suddenly as this also mskes the baby prone to allergic cough and cold. Do not take thr baby in dusty areas as this will trigger allergic cough and cold. For cough and cold in children give hot food and liguids. This helps in clearing the throat and swelling therein. Happy Parenting.

If you feel the baby breaths abnormally during feeding kindly meet a child specialist for confirmation. Also better to give only breastfeeding till 6 months of age. Kindly discuss position and attachment while breastfeeding with your pediatrician. Happy Parenting.
