Does smoke from burnt food (no fire) cause health damage? Pan was left on stove. One year old in house

Does smoke from burnt food (no fire) cause health damage? Pan was left on stove. One year old in house

Not ideal: As basically all smoke has some carcinogens (cancer causing chemicals), granted usually in very small/trace quantities. In small amounts/short exposures, this isn't likely to create any problems. So I wouldn't worry too much, unless this is going to be a very frequent event. ...Read more

One year old only weighs 17 pounds. She's active and loves nursing. She's sometimes interested in solid food, sometimes not. Should I be worried?

One year old only weighs 17 pounds. She's active and loves nursing. She's sometimes interested in solid food, sometimes not. Should I be worried?

It depends: Your daughter's doctor is the best one to know if this growth rate is right for her. It depends on how she has been growing, how her height and weight correlate, and how healthy she is. If she is doing well, just keep offering foods (try giving breast milk only after she eats solids)- the amount she takes will change from day to day. Offer more finger foods- she may want to feed herself more now. ...Read more

What should be the quantity of food at each meal that my one year old baby girl should be having? She is 2 ft 6 inches and weighs 9.3 kilos

Approximately: Usually three major and two minor or snack meals per day. Have you graduated your one year old to whole milk? Usually 6-8 ounces of milk 3-4 times per day. Depending on the number of teeth and general health of your child, the consistency of jar or table food and cereal--1-2 jars per feeding. Beware choking hazard foods. Ask pediatrician. ...Read more

See below.: Was your son premature? Has he had swallowing difficulties with formula and/or the baby foods? Some children do resist eating table foods because they don't like the texture, but you should speak to his doctor to make sure there isn't a physical reason. ...Read more

I have a one year old with very soft loose looking pale yellow/pale green stool with some occasional undigested food. Yesterday it was darker but had undigested blueberry bits. Today it was paler, more with a yellow tinge and one stool had undigested cher

Fast transit: I year old have fairly fast transit of foods through the digestive tract. Its not surprising that there is undigested fibrous foods like blueberry and cherry. Probably better to puree these fruits for better digestibility and absorption as well as decreasing the risk of choking in this age group. ...Read more

What are some foods I can give my one year old?

What are some foods I can give my one year old?

See below: Depends on where the child is with the food advancement progression. If the child has graduated to solids (stage 3), then table foods that the parents are eating are ok as long as they are prepared for the child appropriately (cut up, mashed up, etc.). Otherwise, a general well rounded diet with fruits and veggies, grains and protein is advised. ...Read more

What are the foods that I can't give to my baby before she is one year old?

What are the foods that I can't give to my baby before she is one year old?

Chocolate& egg white: There are a variety of foods that make no sense in small infants. Popcorn, peanuts etc. Can be inhaled into the lungs by a pre-verbal child & cause recurrent pneumonia. So safety is sometimes an issue. I specifically avoid egg white & chocolate due to a tendency to trigger allergic rxns later. I don't encourage citrus juices either, but more because of their acid nature & excess sugar. ...Read more

You control the food: Your child shows a normal preference for salty/sweet processed food, but it's not healthy. You must take control! Don't offer nor have them in your house, or you'll be tempted to give. Changing to a healthy diet won't be accepted until your baby is hungry. You're not a bad mom if she misses a meal-and when hungry she'll accept those healthy foods. Work with your dr to revise eating habits. ...Read more

What could it mean if my 1 year old has been throwing up her food in large amounts once a day for about 3-4 days, but seems fine afterwards?

Acid reflux, infant: This could be acid reflux which is common in infants. Reflux usually causes vomiting through the mouth or nose after feedings, with abrupt position change, or when pressure is placed on the abdomen. The severity of reflux varies. It usually lessens by 6 months of age but requires treatment in babies who don't gain weight or choke/gag. Reflux is not usually associated with fever or diarrhea. ...Read more

What is the best way to introduce shellfish/peanuts, or other possible allergy "risky" foods to a one year old?

What is the best way to introduce shellfish/peanuts, or other possible allergy "risky" foods to a one year old?

Now: Recent studies suggest that introducing table foods to infant between age 4 and 6 months reduce the development of food allergy. This is opposite of what we had recommended just a couple of years earlier. For a child with eczema or a family history of peanut allergy, you should consult your allergist before going ahead since the issue is more complicated. ...Read more

My one year old son has a everyday (only)morning cough, constant nose congestion and gaggs and chokes on some foods. Any reasons?

My one year old son has a everyday (only)morning cough, constant nose congestion and gaggs and chokes on some foods. Any reasons?

Aspiration, reflux: Many things can cause long-term cough and congestion in a one-year old, most relate to inhaling (aspirating) what they eat. What you describe should be discussed with your doctor as they could lead to pneumonia. Be sure your son doesn't get a bottle or cup propped in bed at night. Your doctor is likely to want to check out his swallowing and possible acid reflux. Allergies aren't too likely. ...Read more

One year old daughter crying for breast feed in night. Eats mild solids well. Not drinking bottle milk. Expects me always around her, else she cries?

One year old daughter crying for breast feed in night. Eats mild solids well. Not drinking bottle milk. Expects me always around her, else she cries?

Possible teething: She may be crying at night for another reason. At a year of age she is conceivably teething thereby giving her pain. Try giving her Ibuprofen or tylenol (acetaminophen) at bedtime and see if that soothes her. If you want to stop the night time feeds another thing you can try, is to let her cry it out. Go to her when wakes up, sooth her but don't pick her up. After 3-4 nights and you'll get your rest. ...Read more
