HI Trinayani, if the baby is only breast fed, improving your diet will help. Also, check the baby"s weight to make sure it is increasing..else you may need to supplement with top feeds. Take care ! 2018-12-27 14:57:15

HI Diya, sometimes the digestion is immature initially and improves with age...have you noticed any particular foods that may be triggering it, any allergies ? Also, try to prevent infections by maintaining good hand hygiene. Pica , or eating sand etc is sometimes a symptom of iron deficiency- this can be checked on examination by your local paediatrician. iron , supplementation would also hep with appetite. Hope this has been useful. 2018-12-27 15:14:00

hi Priyamit, offer water 1-2 spoonful initially after solid feeds. For prepared foods, follow the instructions on the box. For weaning, home prepared food should also be given. the quantity ranges from 2-3 spoonfulls of prepared food to more as per need.All the best ! 2018-12-27 15:22:00

hi, If it has been diagnosed as lactose intolerance, it usually requires change to lactose free formula and settles with that. 2018-12-27 15:24:20

Good afternoon, yes her weight gain could have been better..it is affected completely by their food intake so try and include more dense calorie and protein rich food in her diet example rice dal with vegetables, stuffed paranthas, chicken soup, banana shake etc. Also, have a follow up with your paediatrician who can examine and rule out any concerns. Dont worry, it is a common problem that can be helped , Take care. 2018-12-27 15:39:33

HI Pragya !! Good to hear from you .. you will have to keep the phones away from his reach and use sparingly in front of him to minimise his screen time... It seems the development is coming along...if this pointing out problem is intermittent only, then not a worry as he seems to be doing other things fine like joining words, eye contact etc. 2018-12-27 15:49:33

HI , to answer your queries.. 1. can check with your gynae about lactogenic granules that may help 2. continue to put him to breast anyway to stimulate the reflex and offer top milk too as his requirement need to be met 3.not necessarily...the best stimulus is baby sucking at the breast.. 4. it varies on the number of feeds taken in a day, current weight ...2-3 ounces and as per demand. take care! 2018-12-27 15:55:21

Hi Sandhya, for tonsils and adenoids that are causing lot of symptoms , surgery will help. Taxim o is safe to give, sometimes repeat courses of antibiotics have to be given and its ok to do as long as there is a valid reason for it. Foods rich in proteins and vitamins such as egg/meat/dal/fruits should be included in daily diet. 2018-12-27 15:58:40

Hello Madam.My 10 months old baby getting fever in every frequently.The fever started in August , then again got fever in November & and again this month.She is underweight slightly is this could be the reason for low immunity or is there any reason for catching fever again & again?

Dr. Shipra Mathur
Hi Darshana, yes low immunity will make you more prone to catching infections that you are exposed to. Though not uncommon in babies as these tend to be their first exposures to which they then develop immunity. if she is underweight too, include good sources of proteins and vitamins in her diet like egg/ meat/dal/fruits on a daily basis.Keep her warm and take precautions around people with infections.

Hi geetha, you can include rich sources of proteins and vitamins in their diet such as egg, meat, beans, dal . and fruits on a daily basis. The seasonal cold cough may also be allergic in nature so take care to avoid obvious triggers during those times. 2018-12-27 15:05:24
