The best time to read and learn about the skills of breastfeeding is during pregnancy, especially if you are going to be a first-time parents. So many myths and confusions about feeding revolve around a mother as soon as a baby is born. And more the number of people around, more complicated it gets. Thus, its better to have yourself sorted out before-hand. The group sessions by Dr Shacchee over Zoom platforms, helps couples & families learn about the art and skills of feeding and all feeding practices are well addressed in interactive sessions extending over 2 days.
The feeding journey of a baby does not end with first six months of exclusive breastfeeding. A growing child constantly needs an optimal nutrition to meet increasing demands of the growing body. India has a diverse social structure and that brings in its diverse feeding practices and as expected even more diverse myths and confusions when it comes to introduction of semisolids and breastfeeding beyond 6 months of life. The interactive Zoom Sessions conducted by Dr Shacchee for parents and families helps families in streamlining their feeding practices, to ensure an optimal feeding of the child.

Vaccination is a topic which confuses most of the parents, especially the first time ones. And to a large extent this results from different schedules by public & private sector. Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP) issues recommendations and all children should receive the vaccines mentioned under “Recommended for all” by IAP. Besides that parents should be informed about other vaccines which are mentioned by IAP under “For High Risk” and if any parent plans to have them, they should be administered.
Gone are the days when the thought of getting your kids ears pierced used to give a goose flesh…
The Soft hand actuated piercing System from Inverness, USA has now replaced the traditional spring loaded gun piercing which used to cause lot of pain and local redness later on.
Ear pins with a very thin pins are in a sealed sterile capsule, which is loaded and placed gently into the ear with a Hand acctuated machine. The pain of the prick is even less than what is experienced during any routine vaccine administration. There is no after pain and the mild redness disappears in few hours. All after care needed is to apply alcohol after bath and check locks once a day for next few days.
