  1. If your doctor has suggested it before food, then there is nothing wrong. In some children with sensitive stomach, it may cause a little burning sensation, that is why, I advised against before food. But if your son has no problem with it, please continue. No problem.

    • Not very necessary. Some kids may find it a bit ‘strong’ or ‘hot’. That is why it is generally advised to mix water with it before giving. if your child is comfortable, then no need of adding water.

      Pinda sweda
