Answer: Hi, I can understand your concern. If your baby is fine now then most likely your baby had got simple febrile convulsions. These are simply fever related fits. They can occur till the age of 6 years during fever. But definitely not with every spike of fever. They don't have any future consequences and usually doesn't require treatment except to reduce the fever. So in case of fever in future, don't wait to give paracetamol in any case except baby is convulsing. If fever is high then sponge the baby along with paracetamol. Always carry thermometer and paracetamol with you. In case of convulsions, don't put anything in baby's mouth not even medicine. Turn the baby left and allow them to throw convulsion. Visit doctor after the convulsion. Please don't worry and mainly don't panic as it worsens the situation.

Answer: Hi dear. I understand wat your going through. I'm sure your a very good mom. Some things aren't under our control. Next time you just be a little careful. Try to keep a folding mattress on the floor from where the baby has s chance to fall.. n 7 months baby are very anxious about new things coz they have just started crawling . They try to explore stuff. So just calm down .. take care
Question: Hi mommies, I am ftm of my 4months and 3week old baby boy. We are ebf. Will be joining back to office after completing 6months so just wanted to know how much time does babies take to except bottles when there a breast fed, I am planning to continue bf for a year and would really appreciate some useful information when should I start giving him bottle for him to get use too, which type of bottle to be used so he can accept breast as well when am available at home as I have learned from few experience moms that once we start bottle they start rejecting feeds from breast. Also some tips on sterilising bottles and storing breast milk.
Answer: Hello! Being a ftm it is normal that there are lot of queries which arise in mind. I really appreciate you for thinking of breastfeeding for 1 year inspite of working. Breastmilk expressed can stay for 4 hours in room temperature, 24 hours in fridge and till 6 months in freezer. Hence, would suggest you to start building stock from now onwards. You get sterilised packets and bottles for storing milk. After storing mark the date on it, so as to avoid confusion. Before giving it to baby thaw the milk by keeping the container in warm water. You can start giving bottle from 4th month itself. Use the slow flow nipples available, this will not cause your baby to stop direct feeding from breast. Hope have helped you. If you want to know anything, let us know. Take care
