what is bronchial congestion & what causes it?
And cough in children
Please I just noticed blood coming out of my baby’s navel, please what should I do?
MOST bleeding in the first
week of life is DUE TO VITAMIN K
DEFICIENCY. PLS ALL BABIES MUST
RECEIVE AN INJECTION OF VITAMIN K
AFTER BIRTH. PLS ASK IF YOUR BABY
WAS GIVEN VIT K AND IF NO, PLS GO TO
HOSPITAL TO GET THE VIT K. It should
be sufficient to stop the bleeding. bleeding
can also be due to other issues like injury to
the cord, infection of the cord or inherited
bleeding disorders. Please see a doctor if
a your baby is till spotting blood from the
cord despite being given Vitamin K
injection. THIS IS IMPORTANT, BABY'S
BLOOD VOLUME IS SMALL AND IS LESS
THAN A WHOLE BOTTLE OF COKE (35CL)
AND THEY CAN EASILY LOSE ALL. ALL
BLEEDING SHOULD BE CHECKED AT THE
HOSPITAL TO BE SURE ALL IS WELL.
Boosting of appetiteDoc, please can I give my son of a year and 9 months, becombion syrup to boost his appetite? He don't like eating! Please?
Be rest assured that it’s a phase and he’ll outgrow it. Children that age do not need appetite boosters. You’d have to find alternatives to get him to eat, try singing, dancing, clowning, etc..
Difficulties in Sleeping at nightThanks for the opportunity my baby always cry at night what could be the reason and what should i do to prevent this usual occuren...
This can be very difficult. Most issues related to a baby not sleeping are caused by temporary things like illness, teething, developmental milestones or changes in routine — so the occasional sleep snafu likely isn't anything to worry about.

Try to talk to your doctor is this persist so the underlying cause can be investigated
Baby's healthIs it wise to give my baby his remaining pap please
Depends on how long. Ideally because babies are easily susceptible to bacteria infections, it’s not ideal to give them leftovers. Just make a fresh one and to avoid wastage, make what your baby can finish or finish your baby’s leftovers yourself.
ImmunizationMy 6weeks old baby is running temperature after immunization yesterday. What do I do?
Side effects after immunisation are mostly mild and usually last one to two days. Babies may be unsettled or sleepy after immunisation. Just give paracetamol , your baby should be fine.

1) Make sure they're not wearing too many layers of clothes or blankets.
2) Give them plenty to drink.
3) Give your baby liquid paracetamol to bring their temperature down.

It depends, Some babies are more interested in solid food than breast milk by 12 months, after they've tried a variety of foods and can drink from a cup.

My son who is 10 years old smell sweet so badly. What can be the problem?
Your son is most likely going through early puberty. Professional response to a similar post is that 'some children have early puberty which can make them have body odour. Just focus on hygiene and you can use deodorant as well'.You might as well see a paediatric endocrinologist to relieve your concern.
