Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My son's tongue comes out while sleeping and most of the time. He is six weeks old. While breastfeeding, he uses his tongue to suck the milk. Is this normal? Please advice.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As the child is just six weeks old, you need not worry. It is normal for the baby to do this. It is just a variation. Do not panic and just relax. Watch your baby grow and change habits as he grows.

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Thank you so much. I have one more doubt. Which type of vaccination is good, either painful or painless?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Thanks for your feedback.

  • As per the studies and previous experiences, painless vaccines are not effective. So, I suggest you go with the painful vaccine only.
  • For pain, you can always use a mild painkiller like Paracetamol after vaccination.

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Thank you for the reply.

My son is five and a half months old. He has his mother's milk and also powdered milk. We have started giving Cerelac also for the past ten days. Motion is coming out in solid dark green color with a bad smell. Can you please confirm this is normal or suggest some medicine for this?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com. Yes, it is absolutely normal, there is a lot of variation in the color of the stool, only thing is it should not be completely white or red or black rest is fine. I suggest you give some enzyme supplementation like Neopeptine drops (digestive enzyme) twice or thrice daily before food.

Regards.

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Thank you for the reply.

Today my baby's stool is somewhat black in color. Is it fine?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Need not worry; it must be dark green which is almost black, nothing to panic about, please start the advised medication.

Regards.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
