Doctor:I had clearly told you not to go to any pediatrician,
User:ok,, but my wife's home stays in chamrajpet its too far to come st. johns hospital
Doctor:I had asked you to consult a neonatologist specifically because the poor weight gain and poor feeding are always due to bad positions while feeding
User:im sorry to say..
Doctor:In that case I am really sorry I can not help you much
