Dear Dipti
Babies have different sleep patterns during first year. Some sleep continously for 3-4 hours and wake up again for feed or if the napkin gets soiled. Others may sleep for 8-10 hours. Yet another group sleeps for an hour and keeps waking up again and again. You are lucky if your baby sleeps for 6-7 hours at a stretch. There is no need to give any medicine to induce sleep in case of young children. These can be harmful. I found out that the 'Megacure ds' drops are Ayurvedic drug used for liver and gall bladder ailments!

Hello! I am 35 weeks pregnant. Started itching all over body especially palms and soles. Doctor advised lfts. Alp-210 Sgot -32u/L Sgpt-37U/L The obg suggested close fetal monitoring with ctg n lft repeats and is suspecting obstetric cholestasis. She suggested early labor induction once I complete 37 weeks. I am not vry sure if the diagnosis is not confirmed...do I go ahead with the labour induction & continue monitoring till my due date n wait for normal labour to start? Evrythings perfect with me and I was looking forward to a normal delivery. N I am strictly against c sections and I heard labor inductions in first timers 60% of the times end up in c sections. Please advise! Thnks!
