Answer: Hello dear Yes, it might be due to teething problem. Teething gets babies very cranky. The best thing to do is get them teething toys or soothers they help in relaxing the irritated gums. You can massage ur babies gums with a clean finger. You can also use a clean cloth dipped in cold water n keep it in ur babies mouth. U can get a chilled spoon for the baby to chew on. It will help ur baby. Cold food like frozen fruits cold yogurt you can give ur baby frozen banana stick. The cool feeling can be bressing for the irritated gums.  Also feed your baby calcium rich foods like dark leafy vegetables, milk, yogurt, cheese etc.

Question: My 5 month old baby is sucking his fingures every now and then and sometimes tries to suck n chew whatever comes near to his mouth. He often grabs our fingures by both his hands and puts it in his mouth. Today he pooped 5 times which is little watery than usual. Are these sign of teething?
Answer: Yes dear, it could be sign of teething. Most babies start teething between 4 and 7 months. But at this age, a more likely possibility is that your baby has started to "find" her hands, which may become her new favorite play things. Babies have a natural urge to suck. This urge usually decreases after the age of 6 months. But many babies continue to suck their thumbs to soothe themselves. Thumb-sucking can become a habit in babies and young children who use it to comfort themselves when they feel hungry, afraid, restless, quiet, sleepy, or bored.

Question: My son is getting his 3rd birthday by this month. He doesn't eat food at all. Even if it's fully smashed rice. He keeps food in mouth for more than 30 to 40 mins to swallow one byte of food. Really frustrating. Can anyone suggest any other idea. I even tried giving different kind of dishes. But no go.
Answer: Hello dear, If your toddler loses interest, or seems tired, cranky or unwell, take the food away. Try to give her in a different way like custard, fruit salad, pooding etc. u can use vaggie like cutlet, veg sandwich, fried vegetables rice etc.....Sometimes toddlers want to try new foods if you just keep trying....Make mealtimes a happy, regular and social family occasion – sit together to eat with your toddler whenever possible. Show your toddler how much you enjoy eating the food you’ve prepared. Get your toddler involved in helping to prepare and cook family meals.... Offer new foods when you and your toddler are relaxed and she isn’t too tired or distracted by other things . Set a time limit of about 20 minutes for a meal. If your toddler hasn’t eaten the food, take it away and don’t offer an alternative snack or meal....Offer new foods with foods that your toddler already knows and likes. Keep offering new foods. It can take 10-15 tries for children to accept and enjoy new foods.... If your toddler refuses something, offer it again in a week or so. Let your toddler touch, lick and play with food, and allow for some mess as she learns to eat. Let your toddler feed himself and give him some help if he needs it.... Hope it helped, take care ur little one
