1. My son is 5 and a half months old. There is a small white patch near his left eye from the fourth month till now. Few spots are also seen below his eye lashes. It is slowly spreading.. What could it be? 2. He is sucking his thumb very badly even when his tummy is full. Is there any way to avoid it?

1. If you are sure that the patch is since one month (& not since birth) & its increasing, it might be fungal infection of skin. It's advisable to get video consultation with a dermatologist. 2. Thumb sucking is common in this age as a pleasure game. Keep his hands clean, play with him by giving him something to hold instead of you taking his thumb out of his mouth he will take out thumb & try to hold the toy. 2020-05-07 13:59:17

She is presently growing well (above 90th percentile of height for age). She has potential to get average height of her both parents. Check with your regular paediatrician during growth spurts. Egg is complete protein, so if she likes & tolerates it continue. In veg, you can give her 1 regular bowl of dal daily twice with sprouts alternate day once. Rest she can have everything in meals what you eat. 2020-05-07 14:11:04

Your kid's age seems to be less than 6months as you have immunized him with vaccine against rotavirus. If he is only breastfed baby, presently accepting orally well & there is no tightness of stomach, no vomiting then continue as it is. Effect of immunization will have its natural course without any problem. Baby generally do not have any trouble due to what mother eats (except certain antibiotics). 2020-05-07 14:18:56

If birth history is uneventful, weight & overall growth is normal then milestone of sitting from lying down position is to be achieved ideally. How is he standing with support? By his own or someone makes him stand? It is advisable to get his neuro-developmental assessment done as the surrounding situations normalise. 2020-05-07 14:26:33

If presently her height is somewhere between 98cm-112cm then she is normal for her age. You can wait for her age of growth spurts. Till then regular height, weight charting, balanced diet, playing at outdoor/ground needs to be followed. 2020-05-07 14:32:04

Ideally specialised training of children with autism needs to be done with special teachers. You must be doing this earlier. But during this lockdown period, follow the same at home i.e. the exercises, activities he was doing in special training so that his excess body stimulation is channelised. 2020-05-07 14:39:05

Depending upon site & size of hemangioma and age of the baby, sometimes gets reduced. Sometimes it remains as it is (only proportionally increases with the growth of body). You have already consulted n applying the medication. Continue it. 2020-05-07 14:45:54

You are probably under too much stress since starting. Milk secretion is a reflex action of baby's suckling at your breast. If breasts & Health Drink are normal then just enjoy with your baby. Always take the baby to breast first to feed without thinking about baby gets fully fed or not. If he still cries then give him formula feed. Do not think much just go on breastfeeding & formula feed SOS. 2020-05-07 14:53:14

Does she have loose motions, vomiting, fever, cold? If not then... You can give her dal-chapati, dal-rice, khichadi, vegetable soup, Dalia/sooji, apple, banana, boild potato, idli etc. Whatever you start with give her the same at same time for 7 days at least. She does not know any tastes... So we have to develop her taste. One day if doesn't eat still do not change food item & time. Started food item need not be discontinued when you add new one. Try this. 2020-05-07 15:03:31
