Q.is prawns is good for breastfeeding moms

ExpertvandanaNutritionist6 days ago
A. Hello mom, you can consume , but you need to observe your baby after you feed as to clarify any allergies the baby might have. As whatever you are consuming effects the baby directly. So if the baby is fine it’s fine to continue.

Q.Is there any way to get rid of stretch marks and also on loose hanging tummy? My c- section was done on 10 Aug 2019?

Janani ViswanathanMom of 2 childrenNew Answer
A. Apply castor oil on the stretch marks and massage in circular motion for ten minutes. Then wrap the area with a cotton cloth. Apply hot water bag on that area for like fifteen minutes. Cut potato into slices and rub it over the stretch marks until the startch is well applied. After fifteen minutes wash it away with warm water. Exercises will be the more natural way to get ur tummy back to form or lose the extra weight . Start with slow pace exercises like walking. If u had normal delivery then after ur post natal check up u can start exercising around eight weeks. If u had c section after six months, consult with your doctor once and if the doctor confirms the internal stitches should have healed then you can start exercising. You can go for ab exercises or yoga like bhujangasana or pavanmukthasana or Surya namaskar on a regular basis starting with mild ones and gradually increasing the complexity. Also take care of your diet. Avoid junk and include healthy fruits and vegetables.

Q.Hello everyone, my son is 6 months older now and we recently started food to him but after having food is sometime, he pooped.

Janani ViswanathanMom of 2 childrenNew Answer
A. It is ok. This doesn't necessarily mean any problem unless the stools are watery, or too hard, or has blood stains or the baby has a stomach pain or looks cranky or cries everytime he poops. In all these cases you should consult a doctor. Otherwise you need not worry.

Janani ViswanathanMom of 2 children1 min ago
A. Are u using diapers? If not it is good to use. Diapers are not harmful if used with appropriate care. Diapers give comfort and protection to the baby. Diapers also enable a peaceful sleep without disruption and uneasiness due to wetting. A baby who sleeps well will be a happy baby.

Q.is it ok to give saffola instant masala oats to my baby?

Janani ViswanathanMom of 2 children3 mins ago
A. No. Don't give any instant foods for your baby. They will contain some amount of preservatives and chemicals added for cooking easily in less time. This is the time when u r introducing new foods to the baby and his tummy can be delicate. So better to give home made healthy foods like fruit purees or porridge or homemade cereals or vegetable purees.

Q.My baby is 4.1kg weight now. She is 43 days old. Is that weight less.

Janani ViswanathanMom of 2 children2 mins ago
A. 3.2 to 5.4 kg is the average weight range for this age group. She is well within the range. Usually this also depends on the baby's birth weight. Your baby should be peeing anywhere between six to ten times a day which means the baby is taking feeds properly. If not then make sure the baby is latching and taking feeds well or if ur milk supply is sufficient. Also there should be a gradual weight gain. Keep a check on these factors.

Q.#AskTheExpert #ParentingClinic my baby still not start to speak

Janani ViswanathanMom of 2 children3 mins ago
A. Babies talk around 18 months. They will be able to say simple words, point to objects and call their name. Every child is different and there could be early and late speakers. So u need not worry. The only key is to keep communicating with ur baby regularly. Question him and urge him to answer. Talk to him about everything that u see around. Tell more stories. A continuous verbal conversation with ur baby will improve his vocabulary and encourage him to speak more.

Q.my daughter is 5 months old...she dint pass motion in three day ...

AmrutaMom of a 1 yr 2 m old girl1 min ago
A. Is she exclusively breastfed? It's completely ok for a breastfed baby to go without pooping for 7 days. Breastmilk is easily absorbed by the body and since that's the baby gets all her nutrition from it there is very little waste. As long as she doesn't cry or strain while pooping or is unusually fussy you don't have to worry.
