Please get your baby examined by his pediatrician to find out the cause and appropriate treatment. Please don't try to self-treat your baby. It can, sometimes be dangerous.

A 4.5 month old baby does not require any water/ juice, even in summers. Baby should be ONLY on breastfeeding till 6 months of age.

QUESTION: thank you very much sir. when we consult the pediatrician at columbia asia hospital in mysore they said  that nothing to worry give him some water  it will be ok,but i am very scared what to do please give me information about the reason for baby's condition.we are not able to collect his urine can we give sample of urine collected in pampers please suggest. we are not getting usefull treatement from our pedt

Hi Raj,

I am sorry for replying late.. was busy elsewhere

No, Pampers can't be given.... Even otherwise Pampers and such diapers should NOT be used routinely. Use very very occasionally.

You can enquire about "urine collection bags for newborns: That help in collecting sample.

Although your pediatrician seems to be on right track, still you can take another opinion from another pediatrician locally, if you are not satisfied.

I would be happy to answer general queries on prevention and treatment of ailments in newborn, infant, toddler, child or an adolescent. Needless to say, it will not be possible to answer any query that requires diagnosing, since it is not possible to examine a child online.
