Home-Made Babyfoods for Diarrhoea


If your child has diarrhoea then proper foods should be given to control the motions. Rice kanji and sugar,salt and water solution are ideal for child who has diarrhoea. Here we have given the method for preparation of rice kanji and the solution. This solution should be taken frequently to prevent dehydration.


Rice Kanji


Boil little water and add 30 grams (or a handful) of rice powder to make the solution into a thin liquid. Add one level teaspoon of salt and water to this liquid to make it up to 1 litre.



Water, Sugar and Salt solution


This solution is an essential medicine for diarrhoea. It is necessary for adults as well as children and infants. After preparing the solution, make sure that you taste it. The solution should not taste too salty. Add lime juice (sour/sweet) or orange juice to taste. Some children prefer to have this solution without orange juice.


Keep this solution in a refrigerator or cold place. Make fresh solution after 24 hours. Wherever possible, boil the water and cool it before adding salt and sugar. Once the solution is ready, do not boil it.


Children
For 1 litre of water, add 3/4 teaspoon of salt and 8 level teaspoons of sugar. Mix and taste.


Infants
For 1 liter of water, add 3/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of sugar. Mix and taste.

Cough and Cold home remedies


To cure a cough quickly, make a paste of basil leaves(Tulasi) and honey. Have a
teaspoon of this. Or alternatively boil basil leaves in some water. Strain and
add a little honey.


To keep throat infection and cough at bay, drink basil water daily.


Mixture of honey and ginger juice is good for sore throat. Drink one
teaspoon of ginger juice mixed with an equal quantity of honey. Follow it up
with a glass of warm milk.


Mix 1 tsp of Honey with ½ tsp of grated ginger. Give this mixture to the
child to get rid of a sore throat.


For a wet cough heat ½ tsp honey and a pinch of turmeric. Let cool and then have.
To cure a cough boil ajwain leaf (omam)for 20 minutes in some water (just enough
to last for 20 minutes). Strain and give the thickish liquid .


Roast besan (gram flour) and ghee. Add this to glass of milk. This is an
ideal drink to fight cough and cold.


Soak 5 almonds overnight. To the soaked and peeled almonds add 1 peppercorn
(preferably the white variety), 1 green cardamom (choti elaichi) and 1 tsp
sugar. Grind to a paste and eat.


Steam is excellent for opening blocked nasal passages. Use plain water. Do
not add anything to it as Vicks and other such additives just block up the
passages more.


To give steam to a very small child you can use one of these methods -


Hold the child in your lap and cover both of you with a towel to retain the
steam inside. Be careful of the hot utensil and the boiling water especially for
active toddlers!
Close all windows and doors of the bathroom. Turn on the
hot water tap. Keep the child inside the bathroom for some time. You could play
with the child to keep him occupied

Stomach troubles



Dry roast one teaspoon each of Cummins seeds and caraway seeds (ajwain) in a pan. Add one cup water and boil till it is reduced to half. Strain and add sugar to taste. Drink one teaspoon for relief from acidity and indigestion.


Curd is an excellent antacid. Few spoons will do the trick.




Heat a little asafoetida (hing) in a spoon till it is warm to the touch. Take off the fire and mix with a little milk. Give this mixture to the baby.


A drink of saunf (aniseed) water for the breast-feeding mother helps reduce colic in the baby. Make this drink by mixing 1 ½ tsp aniseed in 1 kg of water. Simmer for 10 minutes. Cool and strain. Drink this instead of water throughout your breastfeeding period

Fever: Just take a piece of cloth, put it into the water and squized the cloth and take the same on the head of your baby, the reason behind that dry clothes take out the extra warm of the body, do this for several times, I assure you that this must works because my mom also do the same trick for me
