The watery discharge could be due to conjunctivitis. Instillation of Cirprofloxacin drops will be helpful.

It is important that you start introducing a variety of food in your toddler's diet gradually. These will provide the calories, proteins, vitamins and minerals that are essential for his growth. The amount of food eaten would vary from child to child and would also depend on when you introduce a particular food to your toddler. Most of the times it is "Try and Error" method. Lots of patience would be required from your end to find out what is that diet which tickles your toddlers tastebuds which also contains maximum nutrients. You need to try multiple ones and find which your child loves to eat amongst those. Initially it may be difficult from shifting to solid/semi-solid feed from milk based diet, continued perseverance and trying out what the baby likes is the key.


One recipe which the kid will like is as below

Ingredients needed: Ghee( 2 spoons), Whole wheat flour ( 2 spoons) , Pista( 50 gms), Cardomom ( 6 in number), Almonds( 50 gms), Khajur( Dried dates 50 gms), water/milk

In a pan pour 2 spoons of ghee, heat it, add 2 spoons of wheat flour (Atta), cook it till golden brown on low flame till its slightly golden in color. Add 2 Cups of water or Milk and keep stirring it continuously making a thin water paste( same like sira consistency). To this add powdered mixture of rest of ingredients grinded in mixer ( pista, almond, khajur, cardomom).
Supplement baby breakfast with this recipe, and also can be consumed at night when baby is hungry. In this way his quota for milk will also be fulfilled.


Other suggestions are

1.Veg soup:
Contents: tomato -2, potato-1small, Onion - 1 small, Carrot-1 small.
Preperation: Wash all veggies properly peel potato, onion and carrot. Boil tomato in water for 5 to 6 mins sothat u can see the skin of tomato cracks. Now gently remove skin of tomato. Add tomato and the peeled veggies to a cooker with 1/2 a glass of water. Add pinch of salt and whistle the cooker for 2 to 3 times (veggies shud be cooked well). Now bring it to room temp and blend them in a mixer. Strain the contents to remove any lumps and now boil the soup with cinammon sticks (1or 2piece very small one) added to it. Boil it till it reaches the required consistency and then feed LO.
Note:You can add any veggie to make this soup including leafy veggies like spinach, amaranthus, cabbage etc.

2.Pumpkin: Take peeled pumpkin. dice the pumpkin and then presure cook it with little salt. mash well with hands and feed it along with rice or as such.

3.Gourds (any ashgourd, rich gourd etc etc): Make it finger size and then pressure cook it or boil in water till it becomes soft. You can either feed as a finger food or you can mash it and feed it along with rice or as such.

4. Boiled potatos and carrots. Pressure cook well and mash it with hands and add pinch of salt and feed baby as such.

5. Caramalised plums: Peel the plum. Put it on hot tawa and get it caramalised on both sides and then feed it mashed. Apple also u acn do the same way.

6. Poached pear: peel and pit the pear. Take 1/2 glass of water and add cinammon sticks, grated garlic, cloves etc and bring it to boil. Slip the pears into this boiling fluid and cook until its soft and the fluid is just about to disappear. Now remove all the sticks garlic cloves etc from the fluid and mash the pear in the same fluid and can feed the lo. Its really yumm. And for elders you can add sugar and honey while boiling which makes it a decent desert.

7.Avocado apple puree. Take avocado and peeled and diced apple in equal qty and grind well in blender. Directly feed the baby.

8.Banana: Ripened banana made to thin long slices. Heat tawa add little butter or olive oil and then saute the banana until its soft. mash and feed. If you wish you can add bit of sugar or honey to this

In early May I had laparoscopic abdominal surgery for pelvic adhesions, which developed a large Seroma with undermining and quite large, the fluid was leaking from an old c-section scar in large amounts. After about 10 weeks the wound doctor attempted to close the wound from the bottom up and two drains. Within 5 days MRSA developed, or was already present when the wound was closed, and another surgery to open the wound and clean the infected tissue. After a week’s hospital stay IV antibiotics, and then home IV Vancomycian for 3 weeks, and a 14 day Zyvox dose the tissue cultures are coming back clean, at least as of 3 weeks ago. The wound is at last almost closed, with small amount of Seroma fluid still occurring. It is packed daily with gauze and Tobramycin solution (sp) and dressed by home care nurse. For the past 2 weeks the pelvic area below the wound has developed a pocket” or edema and is causing pressure pain in the pelvic area and now in the legs and feet. My temp is not elevated, in fact it is somewhat low, around 96.2 at periods during the day, and then will go to around 97.0 F. My question is how is it determined if the pocket which is getting larger is edema or more built up fluid due to the wound closing. Can the MRSA still be present with a low body temp? Can the pain, more of an aching pain going down the legs to the feet be caused by the fluid building up? What should be the next steps to determine what is going on? Any advice is welcomed, I trust my wound care doctor who has an excellent reputation for being one of the best, but would like another opinion, as a simple surgery has taken many wrong turns. Thank you!

Hi Dr. Grief. I got poked in my eye this past wed by a girl drying my hair at a salon. I think her hands may have been dirty and I was having some pain. I went to my eye dr yesterday who is an O.D. and she said I had a mild bacterial infection and abrasion. She prescribed Tobramycin Ointment 4x daily for 5 days. I m one of these people who do not like to take pills, vitamins, etc. My eye doesn t look bad and the pain is gone. Should I buy this ointment and still take it? Could the infection go away on it s own? I usually do not do well w/drugs. I m allergic to Penicillin, Amoxocillin, Augmentin, and I even had a reaction to a Tetanus Shot I got last yr for a cut. Is this ointment safe to use?
