HI Shireen, its very common to have some throwing up after feeds in babies -its called reflux and improves with time. keep the baby upright for longer after feeds and can sleep with head end raised. If the vomits are significant, then weight gain is also affected so keep a track of that- sometimesmedication is needed then. 2018-08-30 15:10:34

Hi shilpi, given her birth weight she has done ok the usual weight at this age would be 13 kg or so. Make sure she has a healthy balanced diet rich in proteins like egg, dal, beans etc for growth and fruits and vegetables to provide vitamins for better immunity. 2018-08-30 15:15:11

hi Sachin, there are several extra ones but the vaccinations that are more useful are - pneumococcal/ against pneumonia (PCV) and Rota virus against a type of diarrohoea in infancy. Later on there is, typhoid and hepatitis A in second year of life. 2018-08-30 15:20:21

hi, her weight is not worryingly low and if she is otherwise healthy and active, do not force her but gently introduce healthier options in everyday meals. dry fruits, fruit milk shakes, porridge with vegetables in it etc are some options for her. 2018-08-30 15:24:11

hi, try and increase her immunity by providing more fruits, green vegetables in her diet. However babies will pick up infections more easily once they are being more exposed to environment..is natural too. keep her diet healthy and appropriate.. 2018-08-30 15:29:56

hello doctor....my daughter is a preterm baby. her birth weight was 2.39kg. now she is 2yrs 6months old baby. her weight is around 12+ kg. is this normal? every time i feed her......it takes 1 to 2hrs. she does not prefer non veg food except egg omlette. can i give her one plain egg omlette daily? what should be the food chart and timing for her. should i allow her to have her own food by herself at this age? she tries to utter words with english nursery rhymes.....but when i ask her to utter something most if the time she avoids. How can i make her speak with me so that she can speak properly. thank u. best regards

Shipra Mathur
hi, yes her weight gain is ok. She can have an egg a day in any form. Aim for 3 main meals and 2 snacks at least in between. . gap of 2-3 hours or so. yes, encourage her to feed herself -- can give more finger foods too. Continue to converse with her..by now there should be 2 word phrases ..any worries, please have her assessed by your paediatrician in clinic. 2018-08-30 15:35:01

hi, you have to increase her fluid intake and reduce maida containing foods/junk from her diet. more vegetables and fruits..in milk shakes, stuffed paranthas , soups. If constipation is significant, use medication also to relieve it until diet takes care of it. 2018-08-30 15:37:42

hi prachi, you will have to find ways to include fruits and green vegetables in his daily diet to improve his immunity. give fruit milk shakes, stuffed paranthas, vegetable soups , egg etc. if he is anaemic, he may benefit from iron supplementation that helps with appetite too. 2018-08-30 15:42:15

hi prerna, some babies do take longer in achieving these but it would be worthwhile having her examined from a development point of view by a paediatrician who can take a detailed history, look at muscle tone etc to make sure its fine. 2018-08-30 15:45:07

hi Ishwinder, it appears to be more of a comfort feed then. Let him sleep with another family member/father for a few days and soon he will get used to not having a night feed. Make sure he is well fed in the evening before he sleeps . 2018-08-30 16:36:57
