Hi ,
I can understand your concern.The medicines prescribed by the pediatrician are for the benefit of your preterm child and considered to be 100% safe;though sometimes the babies have difficulty in tolerating them.I would recommend to dissolve the medicine in breast milk before giving it.Also try spacing them at different intervals.

Take Care.

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Let me congratulate you for breast feeding your baby.
Please continue the same till baby is six months. you should also continue to breast feed your baby for 2 years along with other feeds.

It is not mandatory to give zincovit drops to all new borns. So you may stop that and that does not do any harm. It is safe to use these drops. no harm
You may contact me with further details on the following URL...........

In such scenario the questions are directly forwarded to me .............. and I can answer your queries regarding your kid online regularly.

Hope this helps.
Take care
