Pediatric Care

A paediatrician provides routine wellness checkups and treats illnesses and the health of the youngest individuals in infants and children until they’re 18 years old. Neonatologists and pediatricians sometimes work together to treat or manage a baby’s care. As children are constantly changing, pediatric healthcare professionals must consider growth and developmental issues not present in adult patients.

Vaccines protect your child against serious illnesses like polio, which can cause paralysis; measles, which can cause brain swelling and blindness; and tetanus, which can cause painful muscle contractions and difficulty eating and breathing, especially in newborns.

FAQ's On Lactation

Prepare a list of questions before your visit us on lactation issues. Some questions may be unique to you and your baby, however, some common questions on lactations asked are below.

Once your baby is born, your breasts will start to fill up. At first, your body will produce a “pre-milk,” called colostrum. This can be thin and watery or thick and more yellow-coloured. The pre-milk has a slower flow to help your baby learn to nurse. After 3 to 4 days of nursing, your real breast milk will come in.

Most babies are ready to eat 1 to 2 hours after birth. Below is a step-by-step guide on how to breastfeed.

* Wash your hands before each feeding.
* Place your baby in one of the breastfeeding positions (outline below).
* Put the thumb of your free hand on top of your breast and your other fingers below.
* Touch your baby’s lips to your nipple until your baby opens their mouth wide.
* Put your nipple all the way in your baby’s mouth and pull your baby close to you. This lets your baby’s jaw squeeze the milk ducts under your areola (nipple).

When your baby is properly latched on your breast, their mouth should cover most of your areola (the darker area that encircles your nipple).
Typically, you’ll feel your baby pull on your nipple as they feed.

You might hear small noises as your baby eats. Breastfeeding shouldn’t be painful.

Breast milk is nature’s perfect baby food. Your milk has just the right nutrients, in just the right amounts, to nourish your baby fully. It also helps your baby’s mind and body grow. Breastfeeding is a good choice for both you and your baby.

Breastfeeding takes practice. Learning how to hold and support your baby in a comfortable position also requires coordination – and patience.

Yet finding a nursing hold that works for you and your infant is well worth the effort. After all, the two of you will spend hours breastfeeding every day.

Few of the breast feeding positions are : –

The cradle hold
The crossover hold
The clutch or football hold
The side-lying position
The koala hold
The laid-back hold
The post-cesarean laid-back hold
The twin hold

👶 Cup your breast in your hand and stroke your baby’s lower lip with your nipple. This stimulates the baby’s instinct to turn toward the nipple, open his or her mouth, and suck.

👶When the baby opens his or her mouth wide, pull the baby close to you and aim the nipple toward the roof of the baby’s mouth.

👶Bring your baby to your breast, not your breast to your baby.

👶Use pillows or folded blankets to help support the baby.

Breastfeeding is normal and natural and is not supposed to hurt.

It’s likely that most moms will experience some breastfeeding discomfort and sensitivity due to sore nipples in the beginning, breastfeeding should not be painful.

For many women, nipple problems are the worst in the first week after giving birth. Struggles with infant positioning and latch are the most common causes of nipple pain during this time. As mom and baby gain more experience with breastfeeding and latching, nursing becomes much more enjoyable and relaxing for both.

Another reason for discomfort is that the breasts and nipples become more sensitive during pregnancy and after giving birth. Hormonal changes are preparing your breasts for breastfeeding and this can increase sensitivity and cause discomfort.

Your baby will be nursing frequently during the first part of their life, and this repeated suction and moisture can cause discomfort and affect your skin, just like your lips get dry when exposed to different conditions.

Breastfeeding shouldn’t be painful, and pain is an indication that you and your baby may need a little extra help.

Crying is a late hunger cue, so try feeding your baby when they show these early signs.

Arms and legs are moving all around.
Awake and alert or just waking up.
Cooing, sighing, whimpering, or making other little sounds.
Making faces.
Moving head from side to side.
Restless, squirming, fussing, fidgeting, or wiggling around.
Sucking on her lips or tongue.
Turning toward your breast while being held.
Bringing their hands to their face.
Rooting (looking for the nipple with their mouth).
Making sucking motions and noises.
Sucking on their fingers or putting their fist in their mouth.
Flexing their hands, arms and/or legs.
Rooting around on the chest of whoever is carrying him.
Trying to position for nursing, either by lying back or pulling on your clothes.
Fidgeting or squirming movements.
Hitting you on the arm or chest repeatedly.
Breathing fast.

As your baby gets older, their hunger cues may change. Some hunger cues your 6-to-23-month-old baby may show include:
Opening their mouth when you offer food or a spoon.
Getting excited when they see food.
Reaching for or pointing at foods.
Using hand motions or signs to let you know they’re still hungry.

The steps below can help your newborn latch on to the breast to start sucking.

Create a calm environment first. Be in a place where you can be relaxed and calm.

Hold your baby skin-to-skin. Hold your baby, wearing only a diaper, against your bare chest.

Hold the baby upright between your breasts.

Let your baby lead.

If your baby is not hungry, she will stay curled up against your chest. If your baby is hungry, they will bob their head against you, try to make eye contact, and squirm around.

Support your baby, but don’t force the latch. Support her head and shoulders as she searches for your breast. Avoid the temptation to help her latch on.

Allow your breast to hang naturally. When your baby’s chin hits your breast, the firm pressure makes her open her mouth wide and reach up and over the nipple. As she presses her chin into the breast and opens her mouth, she should get a deep latch.

Some signs of a good latch may be:

The latch is comfortable and pain free.
Your baby’s chin touches your breast.
Your baby’s mouth opens wide around your breast, not just the nipple.
Your baby’s tongue cups under your breast.
You hear or see swallowing.
Your baby’s ears move slightly.
