A. Inverted nipples should be first examined by your gynecologist for proper advice. The management should begin during pregnancy and continue during early stages of breast feeding. Even nipple shield can be tried to feed the baby in the case of flat or inverted nipples.

Q. my baby is in his 7th month. when me make him sit, he sits for few min then looses his balance and drop. is it safe for his spine or should we stop doing it

Dr BandanaAyurvedic Physician16 mins ago
A. Sitting, the infant learns to control his body in the sitting position from the age of five months onwards. Initially make your child sit with pillow support and gradually the baby will gain control over the body and starts sitting independently by the age of 8 months and sit steady keeping back straight. By the age of 10 months, the baby can pull himself up from the supine position to sitting position .
