Answer: hi dear! i can understand your situation dear. as the hydrocephalus develops the temporal and the frontal lobes dilate first . so if the temporal horns are still dilated , it can be that the fluid is still inside dear. so best advise is to visit your doctor dear as a scan will be done to see if everything is fine inside dear. dont worry your baby will be fine dear. take care.

Answer: Hi dear I can understand your situation you have been so strong from the beginning. Say now that your baby has recovered the weight gain will be slowly you have to accept the fact that you cannot compare your baby with other babies in terms of weight gain. Nacho baby move on by its own pace and don't feel sad or disheartened at all. I hope your baby has started solids see what you should understand what is best for your baby firstly as much as you can avoid formula milk give breast milk which is most healthy for the baby. There is no point of giving market made cerelac you can cook very good food for a baby at home. You can go give all sorts of fruits and vegetables gross them steam them roast them in which way. Apart from that ragi daliya suji rice a very good serials to give to your baby ragi has a lot of iron. You simply have to roast 2 spoons of ragi add some water you can add Apple syrup for dates syrup for flavouring some ghee and it is good to serve and prepare within 5 to 10 minutes. I used to add several vegetables and fruits in the cooking like I used to make suji and add some pears or Apple pieces in it or beetroot even. the baby does not necessarily need mashed food you can give little pieces that a chewable. Curd is very good for your baby. You can grate nuts also they are healthy. Some water should be given after a meal two mens in a day are fine for a 7 months old if he is able to take. Give your baby baby a good massage and all the supplements required. Hope this helps
