I am having one glass warm milk with fine crushed almond powder before sleep can be reason of weight gain, should I be concerned?

No one actually counts calories for any length of time because it's tedious and basically impossible. Your best move is to get back to some serious physical exercise like when you were a teen, and eat smaller portions, avoiding grease and sugary stuff. A gift for yourself. ...Read more

My baby 2 months ago when she sleeping on the night after 4-5 hours she cray for milk and she drinks just half the amounts and sleep again is it ok ?

Be well. ...Read more

Concerning symptoms: I am very concerned about your baby's symptoms today. Poor feeding, inconsolable nature, and excessive sleepiness warrant a visit today in either an urgent care or emergency room.
