BANGALORE: The newborn baby, battling for life and undergoing treatment at Vani Vilas Hospital, is finally responding to the treatment.
Deprived of his mother’s milk, the baby boy is being helped by other mothers who have delivered babies in the same ward.
Medical Superintendent Dr Some Gowda said, “Though the baby is down with fever, he is responding to treatment and has been put on antibiotics. He has started taking the feed from the mothers who are with their newborns in the ward.”
Dr Gowda also said, “He is still suffering from respiratory tract infection, but depending on the condition, the child will be discharged in a week’s time. If the relatives who have claimed his mother’s body come forward to take him, we will hand over the child to them.”
His mother, identified as Pushpavathi, died after delivering him due to excess bleeding and other complications at an open ground near a park in Kamalanagar in the city on April 22.
