How to take care for a one year old baby who has asthma, any food to avoid, or need long term medicine?
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

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
My 1 year old stays constipated; eats table food quite often. Could that be the problem? Should I take her to doctor?
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
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

My 1 year old doesn't eat anything other than her bottle;fries;popcorn;baby food;cookies, nuggets please I need advices im frustrated want her to eat?
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
Should I be concerned if my baby (1 year old)is vomitting and not taking food for 2 days (only drinks). Also having loose motion.?
My 1 year old son contracted the heand food and mouth disease from his little cousin. Wat can I do to help him be comfortable?
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?
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?
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?
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
My one year old has a fever, runny nose, and a cough but she eats and play normally she just won't drink milk. What can this be?
My one year old boy has the cold really bad what can I do along with medicine to help him through it?
Nasal saline: Cold medicines are not recommended for kids under six. Fortunately, you can use nasal saline to help with congestion and cough from mucus. Spray or put drops in the nose at least 4 times a day, then use a bulb suction to remove the saline and mucus. You can also give an appropriate dose of Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen if your child is uncomfortable from fever. ...Read more
Yes: We try to avoid feeding a little kid any product with loose seeds that they might inhale. Those can lead to recurrent pneumonia that is hard to understand/treat. These may require us to look into their airways and retrieve the seed. I don't feed kids any loose seed like products (including popcorn) until they are old enough to tell me they got some down their windpipe. ...Read more
Is it ok if my one year old son don't eat very much during the day. All he wants to do is snack. Is this normal?
Yes: Most kids at that age will have one good meal, one sketchy, and one awful. Making foods available especially during the "good meal" will make sure that there is a good amount of vitamins and nutrients. Snacking is fine, with coalescence into meals as he gets a little older. However, he should sit with you during mealtime to get used to the social aspect of eating. ...Read more
Why my baby toenail breaks? Knowing that breastfed only one year old and he eat well and doesn't want to drink milk thank you
My one year old used to sleep through the night mostly. Recently, waking up at 3am and will not go back to sleep unless fed. Normal? Growth spurt?
If you haven't: Already done so, take him/her to his/her pediatrician to make sure that nothing physical is wrong (ear infection/teething). If you've done that already, then it would be important to not have him/her continue this habit. A one year old should be able to eat enough during the day and not need to eat in the middle of the night. So hopefully, this is just temporary, & could be a growth spurt. ...Read more

He should be fine!: Mosquito borne disease usually has an incubation period a bit longer than you mentioned. He is also doing well overall without painful and/or swollen joints; sore muscles/aching tendons; extensive skin rashes; tiredness;headaches and swollen lymph nodes. Put 1% Hydrocortisone cream on the bug bites or apply cool compresses. Oral antihistamine like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 2.5ml could be offerred at night. ...Read more
What is hand, foot and mouth disease, its symptoms and how to fix it? The baby boy is 1 year old and he doesn't want to eat or drink. We have to force him and he has at least once a day blow outs of diarrhea. He has a small rash on one side of his mouth a
Hand,: Hand, foot, and mouth is a viral disease cause by coxsackievirus. It often is accompanied by a rash and cold symptoms but the main symptoms are ulcers that can appear anywhere on the body. In a 1 year old, the most likely location is in the mouth, especially on the tonsils and the back of the throat. Typically the symptoms last about 4-5 days and treating the discomfort with tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen is reasonable. Also make sure you are encouraging fluids, even if the appetite is low because it hurts to swallow you want to make sure he is staying hydrated. ...Read more
