Dear doctor, Please, what causes hair loss in babies?
Some babies have this as a result of underlying scalp conditions which must be treated. There is really no reason for the hair loss and it will just grow back on its own. You need to be careful not to use any products that will worsen the hair loss. It is better to see your Paediatrician or Dermatologist first"

There are a number of different causes of knock knee (genu valgus deformity) . One cause is physiological which means its a normal extreme variant which usually will correct as the child grows older usually seen from ages 2 to 5. This usually is symmetrical ( both sides affected and similar in curvature) it's not usually an extreme amount of bend. It tends to run in families also.

Treatment or management of Convulsions is best done by a neurologist.

Every baby has it. So it is not “OKA” or any other thing….It is a normal part of the baby’s head. Don't use anything for it. If your baby is having any other symptoms, you need to see your doctor.

My period hvnt return after given birth, how wil I knw my free period to avoid pregnant cos use of condom tried my husband
Since ur period hasn't returned, theres no way to track ur safe and unsafe periods. Go for a suitable family planning. Although lactational amenorrhoea is a natural firm of family planning but it has its failure rates too. Some women get pregnant even without seeing their period while breastfeeding. That's why it is advised to go for family planning 6 weeks post delivery. Visit any govt hospital in ur area. All d best!
