Do You Need A Paediatrician? by DrAda(f): 10:27am On Feb 16, 2019
I am a paediatrician and I want to offer some of my services to parents who are in dire need of child health care or tips.
My Instagram page is @kiddies_matters
Feel free to please send me DMs there as it is easy to get the alerts rather than on this platform
Remember my services are for free.
Have a lovely day.

�Giving Aspirin when your child has cough and catarrh can damage your child's liver and brain
�Tetracycline stains the teeth and bones permanently
�Cough syrups have not been declared 100% safe in children below the age of 4 years
�Drugs that stop vomiting and diarrhea traps the germs in your child's body worsening the illness
�Honey do contain germs that can cause paralysis in your baby
�Chloramphenicol can change your baby's body complexion and also leads to low blood pressure.

To confirm this belief, the traditional practice is to introduce an ant to the extracted breastmilk and if it dies, it is believed that the milk is spoilt.
The ant dies not from the extracted breastmilk but from drowning.
To believe that breastmilk can spoil while still in the breast is simply not possible.
If that were so, blood transfusion shouldn't exist as well.

Good job doctor Ada... This will be of great help to new moms, but I think health section is the right place to post it.

However permit me to ask this question here- pls what would you suggest in treating catarrh for a 15weeks old baby?
