Answer: Dear baby is only 16 months so it will take some time for baby to develop interest for food and also how to do and digest it... so don't worry just keep feeding your baby properly and it will all be fine.. but as of now baby is denying food then try to understand what she likes to eat and give only that kind of food to baby.. for gas avoid anything that can cause gas like potato, dal and only give light food ,so that baby's digestion get healthy and don't pressurise baby or force feed Baby ..Just be light and gentle and give only what she is likes..

Question: My wife having severe loose motion from yesterday night, she is 9 weeks pregnant. Her stool is coming as liquid and too much smelly. She is not liking food also. And weakness is coming due to loose motion. How can we stop this problem, please help
Answer: Although I am not a doctor but I can tell a few things that might be useful. Ask her to have bread. It soaks up excess water. Rice is also a good thing to eat to combat loose stools. Boiled potato without putting anything but salt and pepper. Try such foods.

Question: My baby feeds both breast milk and formula milk. After her 10th week vaccine she is denying 1feed formula milk. From then she is exclusively feeding BM. but suddenly she gets off to sleep while feeding which is why not having the full stomach all the time. I am unable to burp as the baby asleep. Please give a suggestion.
Answer: Don't worry It's tough to burp when the baby sleeps Burp other feeds Below are the causes of gas trouble- Incorrect Feeding Technique A poor latch onto the breast or bottle results in too much air being swallowed at meal times. Crying Crying can cause your baby to swallow air, especially if he cries in hunger for a long period before a meal. Immature Digestion A newborn’s gut is continuing to develop after he is born. The gut may still be learning to process food, gas and stool effectively Food Sensitivities and Allergies Breastmilk contains traces of foods from the mother’s diet. Some babies may be sensitive to these traces of foods Too Much Lactose Breastmilk is often thought of as containing foremilk and hindmilk. The foremilk, which comes first, contains more of the sugars, lactose, while the following hindmilk is richer in fat. too much foremilk may result in a relative lactose overload. This may contribute to gas or fussiness in babies. Overfeeding Overfeeding can cause problems if a baby’s tummy can’t cope with too much food at once. Transient Lactase Deficiency (TLD) A temporary inability to produce sufficient quantity of the enzyme “lactase”, essential for digestion of “lactose” WORKING ON FEEDING TECHNIQUES CAN IMPROVE THE SITUATION Feed Baby at an Angle: If breastfeeding, keep your baby’s head and neck elevated above his stomach while feeding. If he is bottle fed, feed in a vertical position and tip the bottle slightly so that air can rise to the top, while milk / formula sink to completely cover the nipple Burp During and After Feeding: Pediatricians suggest burping in the seated position as an initial option but you can also burp your infant by holding him upright or over the shoulder. ALONGWITH IMPROVED FEDING TECHNIQUES THESE PHYSICAL THERAPIES HELP FURTHER Tummy Time: Let your baby spend time on his tummy while he is awake and you are observing. Gravity’s gentle pressure can help push out trapped gas. Tummy Massage: While your baby is laying on his back, gently rub baby’s tummy in a clockwise motion and then pull your hands down the curve of baby’s belly. Bicycling Baby’s Legs: While your baby is laying face-up, slowly pump both legs back and forth as if riding a bicycle. The gentle circular motion creates movement in the intestines, which can help loosen trapped gas. Take care
