Darshana White sugar is definitely not a good choice for any of us. Yes you can try palm sugar, coconut sugar, or dates syrup as an alternative. Add these to your tea or coffee after you have poured them in your cup. Yes they can be used for kids as well. So foods rich in fibre and proteins help curb hunger and maintain weight. So that means vegetables and fruits in Raw or steamed or stir fried forms help. example: Fruits eaten with skin, atleast 2 fruits in a day. salad vegetables in raw or stir fried form as in between snacks. to improve the protein value of your meals add steamed sprouts, low fat paneer, curd, to your salad meals. 2020-05-05 14:05:12

Omam water can be given one to two teaspoons alternate days or as the situation of colic arises. For acidity pain give water in which black raisins have been soaked overnight, hand mashed the next morning, strain and given 2 to 3 tea spoon to the baby. Feeding Mothers have to eat a complete nutritious diet every single day. All the Nutrients matter and especially calcium, Proteins and Iron would be the highlight. eg: include roasted Black til as a mouth freshener and eat it especially when you are feeding the baby. Saunf (Fennel Seeds) roasted is an excellent Galactogog. Roasted Makhanas is also a good option. Besides this Galactogos, a feeding mother must have ample of Fluids, not cold ones. So considering the summer season good options would be Cocum Sharbat, Saunf ka Sharbat, Butter milk, nimbu pani, coconut water andfresh fruit juice. besides this remember to drink 2 to 3 ltrs of plain water. As far as food is concerned have one to two glasses of low fat milk. you may add satavarex if needed. Have four meals a day, 2 fruits and a handful of dry fruits. Good and enough sleep, a happy mind help better milk production. 2020-05-05 14:14:37

Hi Aqsa, Loss of appetite is a common symptom during teething. Mild fever, Mild loose motions too can occur. supplement the diet with liquid foods eg: Lassi, butter milk, Fruit Yogurts, porridge with mashed fruits in it, Kheer, mashed fruits, Plain curd, fresh fruit juices are good options besides water. Continuing Brest feeding helps at this time. 2020-05-05 14:18:04

Hi dear, a nine month baby is ready to have all fruits, sabudana, dal rice, dal roti, curd rice, Kheer and curd. So start introducing them in small amounts right away you can add a small amount of Sugar or salt to the required dishes. Please remember to give enough water to the child as it is full summer. 2020-05-05 14:22:04

Hi, Please follow the basic pattern of Breakfast, fruit mid morning, Lunch, evening snack, and an early dinner. Try to feed the dishes eaten by the rest of the family of-course avoiding spice. Break fast can be milk and a portion of upma, chilla, roti or suji ki kheer, doodh daliya, roti and omlette or idli. Lunch can be daal roti subzi or daal rice. add a small katori of curd every day. Evening Snack can be roasted makhanas, Milk Shake, Milk with Corn flakes, bread butter, only fruits. Dinner can be similar to lunch. 2020-05-05 14:28:34

Fakeeha breast feeding needs ample of fluids and a good balanced diet. With the discipline of Ramadaan, it would get difficult to maintain the above in which case it might be hard on you as well as the child's nutrition. Six months is a right age to introduce weaning foods. In addition to one meal cerelac, introduce mashed fruits, Suji ki kheer, pureed daal rice and plain curds to maintain the baby's nutrition. you can also provide 1 to 2 teaspoons of water every two hours religiously to the baby. 2020-05-05 14:33:32

Hi , Even if the child is eating 5 to 6 vegetables its okay. try grating vegetables into parathas, cutlets, sandwiches. Foods with Guten: wheat rotis or parathas, the regular bread we get in market, Suji, biscuits. Its best to read the ingredient list of packaged foods to understand the gluten content. ADHD, I understand is part of every child's growth. Be calm with your child. Keep him engaged in play and mindful activities, games. feed him minimum of packaged and ready to eat foods. Encourage 2 to 3 fruits in a day and plenty of water. 2020-05-05 14:39:43

Also her gums are swellen since 2 months what can we do for the teeth to arrive soon

Avanee Parekh
Remove 100 ml of milk feed that you have mentioned at that time feed the home made cerelac. and 9 pm can be some kheer or milkshake. Avoid 11.30 pm meal completely. I hope that you keep her gums cleaned by wiping with a damp handkerchief post each meal. You cannot do much about the time when the tooth erupts 2020-05-05 14:45:36

As the baby is 6 mths old nutrition requirements increase. Firstly, you can boil a small piece of gondh in water, bring it to room temperature and feed 2 teaspoons every 4 hours. Besides the pureed fruit give strained butter milk and top milk. since the baby's digestive system is getting accustomed to newer foods such instances happen for some time. Giving Fluids as mentioned above help. 2020-05-05 14:50:38

twice a day give pureed fruits, once a day give a katori of curd. daal rice or curd rice can be lunch / Dinner. Best to restrict non veg if constipation is a regular complain. 2020-05-05 14:55:53

hello, my baby is 6.5 months have started solid food since past 15 days.. intially we started with 2 meals but now because his high appetite we have shifted to 3 top feeds a day. 3 are proper semi liquid and one is fruit or vegetable puree. first few days he was ok but recently he has started getting constipated and passes clay like stool several times a day and he has to put pressure while pooping. kindly suggest if there are any specific food which we can give him or should we alter his diet plan? also, he is giving trouble to have plain water ,hence what can be done for the same?

All you need to do is supplement the diet with more fluid option like Buttermilk, Suji ki Kheer, Milkshake, add one more pureed fruit and a katori of plain curd. Give 2 spoons of water every two hours to the baby. Figs or prunes after the baby completes 1 year. 2020-05-05 14:59:19
