Question: Hi Dr i am having twin babies (boys) now adays they are not wanning properly what should i do..they are 14month old.Plz suggest me
Answer: Some points to remember while making food for ur baby:- 1.) You may have switched to cow’s milk by now or might still be breastfeeding. Remember to increase the quantity of solid meals now. If your toddler does not like milk, see how you can replace milk in her diet. 2.) Limit your toddler’s intake of milk to less than 2 cups a day( around 400-500 ml). 3.) If you have been giving purees, stop them right away. At 15 months, your baby is capable enough to chew her food. 4.) Give finger food which the toddler can feed herself. Small pieces of paranthas, rotis, vegetable sticks, paneer sticks, potato and sweet potato fries can form great finger food. 5.) Try not to get too stressed over the amount being eaten or mess being made. This too shall pass! 6.) Avoid temptation to feed sugary items just so the tot eats something. 7.) Serve variety of food to ensure balanced diet. 8.) Try to give a wholesome meal every time but do not count on it to be finished. Every child is different. Some might love one pot meals like khichdi, pulaos etc. while others might insist on separate food groups. Try and figure out your child’s preference. 9.) Try to make food interesting and fun by making different shapes out of chapatis and making food more colorful. 10.) Try not to run behind your active toddler with a plate of food as it can set you up for next few years. Either let them feed themselves or feed in a chair. 11.) Include raw fruits and vegetables (salads) in their regular meals. This is the age to inculcate good eating habits and taste towards healthy food options. 12.) You can safely give non-vegetarian items if you waited till 1 year to introduce them. Eggs, fish and chicken are usually safe to be given. Hope this helps.
Question: I am 23 week pregnant but my tummy is not yet visible.. All are telling baby is not growing as expected.. What I should do?
Answer: All pregnancy bumps are different, so it’s no wonder that some women worry their pregnant tummies might be too big, too small, or the wrong shape. Some women even fear that their belly size may reflect a health problem for themselves or their baby. Fear not. It is a common myth that big bumps mean big babies—and likewise, that a small bump means a small baby. In most cases this is just not true (but some moms still worry that their baby is “the wrong size”). Chances are, if you are tall and have good muscle tone, you will carry high and your tummy might not be very noticeable. Conversely, if you are small and are carrying a big baby, your bump will most likely be truly present for all to see.
