Q. My 2.5 year old kid has cold and fever.... it's been 4 days and she stopped eating food completely. not even milk. I'm tired of forcing her . She looks very weak and pale now. Feeling helpless what should I do.

Dr Disha PatelAyurvedic Physician7 mins ago
A. Hello, Loss of appetite is normal for a child after fever and any illness. Its important that she drinks plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration. In breast fed or formula fed babies Continue breastfeeding or bottle feeding. For an older baby who has started solids, offer clear liquids and foods with high water content like juices (diluted to half water and half juice), soups. Serve up her favorites food..be respectful of your baby's likes and dislikes when illness makes her appetite iffy. If your baby doesn't want to eat, period, don't force it. And once they recover from their illness, their appetites usually recover too .

Q. people say mother's milk is not sufficient for a baby as she is growing up now she is 3 month old ...what should I do

sonam prasadMom of a 2 yr 1 m old boy4 mins ago
A. you have to give exclusively breastfeeding to your baby till 6 months in every 2 to 3 hours or when baby demands because Breast milk is one of the best foods for babies under 6 months to gain weight. Since mother’s milk is more nutritious than any other foods, it is good to exclusively breastfeed babies for the first 6 months. If a baby is breast fed, mum needs to eat more nutritious foods to have enough milk supply and to increase the quality of milk.
