Hi,

Sorry to hear about your chid falling down from the cradle.you have to be extremely careful about these falls as she is growing up now and ends to move more

6 months is too early for the baby to climb on the sides of the cradle.

Reg the fall as such,from your description it is unlikely to have caused any major problem - however you go to nearest
Pediatrician and let them examine the child thoroughly including the pupils.
You have to observe the baby for 48 hrs for vomiting or anything unusual.

Reg the XXXXXXX stools it is unrelated problem.
Did it start after the fall or before?
If the stools are watery ,it may suggest some viral infection.

If the stools are not watery, it may be from iron containing milk formula.

Have you changed the milk recently?

Good luck
God bless

Hi,
Glad to know that your baby is doing well.
Be careful about these falls.

Reg XXXXXXX stool it is because of iron content in these milks.
No need to worry if the stool is formed and solid .

You can give similac followon lutein - for more than 6 months babies.
Or
Nan 2 pro
Enfamil


Reg gerber its not milk.
It is weaning food,to be fed with cup and spoon.
We have cerelac in India of different varieties which you can use as substitute.
Along with that you can start home made semisolid food one by one gradually.
Good luck
Happy sankaranti

Hi XXXXXXX
Good morning!

I believe in simple coconut oil for body and face.
You can also use Johnson's baby oil.

Avoid unknown oils on the face.

Actually massage as such is not needed,simple application to prevent dry skin is advised.

Good luck
Dr Uma
