What is head bobbing means. Worried about that in my 10 m old otherwise normal healthy baby with development milestones met. Ped assured not infantile s?

Though there are: Many fairly benign causes of head-bobbing I'd be uncomfortable reassuring any parent without pediatric neurological & ophthalmological evaluations. Spasmus nutans alone, e.g., starts between 4 mos-3 yrs. & often resolves on its own. It's accompanied by nystagmus, rapid eye movements. Gastroesophageal Reflux is another possibility. I'd look into it a bit more. ...Read more

My b.P reads 90/150. Should I start medication or change the life style. My age is 34 and have a family history of high b.P. Please suggest?

Change your ways now: If your blood pressure is 150/90 and you have a family history of high blood pressure, you would be smart to control any risk factors which contribute to high blood pressure. For example: get exercise, reduce weight if you are overweight or obese, and minimize your intake of salt. If you are a smoker, that habit's just got to go! All of these measures will help tremendously in the long run. ...Read more

I blessed with a baby boy yesterday he weighted 2.7 k gs. The problem is he started crying after 1 min & he is nor crying ever since (in absorvation)?

Is he better?: They cry to oxygenate and to let you know they are hungry. If you are breast feeding, have him skin to skin on your chest- that can calm him. Also breast feed often- every 30 minutes to an hour for 1-2 minutes. Short frequent suckling brings your milk in faster and then he will be more satisfied once he is getting full from eating. ...Read more
