Hi Rekha, I hope you have done initial measures like steam inhalation, warm fluids and nasal saline drops. If the cough and infection are persisting it would be advisable to have her examined by a paediatrician who can assess severity and prescribe accordingly. Take care. 2018-12-20 15:11:08

Hi Aditi, is he gaining weight..? Because if he has been gaining adequately, then he must be feeding enough. Continue to put him to the breast and encourage to feed for longer... Slowly he will be able to do so esp as his requirement increases. Do monitor his weight gain. Take care! 2018-12-20 15:22:37

Hi Trinayani, please continue to put the baby to breast frequently to help drive the reflex that increases milk production. Make sure you have a healthy adequate diet and fluids and stay relaxed :) Your gynaecologist may be be able to prescribe a medicine/granules that may help. However, if the baby stays hungry offer formula as a top up to fulfill the baby's requirement so that the growth is not affected. Take care. 2018-12-20 15:01:32

Good afternoon Pragya! The fit may have been because of the fever.. These are called febrile fits and may occur when the fever rises quickly due to any cause including vaccination. A certain type of dpt vaccine is associated more with fever and fits.. It's uncommon but well known to occur. 2018-12-20 15:34:08

Hi, next time at 5 years, mention this to your paediatrician and he can vaccinate keeping this in mind. JE is advisable to children who are living in area like UP/North East where the disease is common. Not given routinely to all children in the country. 2018-12-20 15:51:46

Hi Sandhya, flu vaccine is optional each year but definitely recommended for young below 5 year olds and those with asthma, heart problems etc. It only protects against the flu and not the other seasonal colds. Every year the strain of the flu vaccine may change, hence the need for a new vaccine each year. If now, your son is healthy from a chest point if view, it's not a must to keep taking it. 2018-12-20 15:45:36
