Answer: Hello dear, you are doing almost everything so dont worry if the bilirubin is not increasing then keep breastfeeding frequently, giving first sun Ray's to baby and in coming weeks the level will come down. Also do consult with your doctor and check if any medication is required or not..

Question: I want my baby to get fair skin , she is fair but i wish she should be little more fair and healthy . Could you please suggest some tips
Answer: Hello! Since your baby already has a fair skin I would suggest you to maintain a healthy skin for the baby. For this use baby moisturizer 4-5 times a day, and use coconut oil for massage in summer and olive or mustard oil in winter. If possible try to massage twice a day. It helps for a healthy skin which will glow. Take care

Question: Hi doc... I am 7 mnth pregnent now...my gct shows 187...so could you please recommen some remedies to control my sugar levels...thank you
Answer: Hi dear, Your sygar levels are quite high at this stage. Diabetes or sugar during pregnancy is though a common but at the same time controling is equally important.normal sugar level post eating should be below 140 mg/DL. Fasting sugar should be below 100. Few life style changes can bring back sugar balance. Eat smaller frequent meals instead of larger meals.this will ensure sugar balance throughout the day. say no to all forms of sugar and avoid refined food. Whole grains and proteins which are slowly digested can raise sugar slowly.prefer brown rice over white rice.oats and whole wheat are preferred.exercises can be very beneficial during such cases too.keep monitoring sugar level. Uncontrolled sugar could make larger baby and preterm labor.Also refer the healofy app for daily updates on baby development and growth,as well as pregnancy care.it also gives you enormous info on post delivery baby care and diet.donot miss out!
