He is very traditional in his approach. For oil massages, when most opt for olive oil and other baby products, he advises mustard oil/ coconut oil. He never recommended me baby food products. i had to travel with my son in his 3rd month and wanted to start bottle feed and was planning to buy breast pumps and stuff. All he said was , " No need. take one cloth, cover yourself and feed him. There is nothing when can compensate the hygiene of direct breast feed. " He is a man of very few words, but patiently listens and answers to all questions. You have to prod him a bit though to get longer answers. :) Although getting his appointment is a huge task and i book a month in advance, but i know my son is in safe hands. The only disadvantage is if you want to approach him in case of emergency, the staff redirects you to the emergency ward where junior docs take charge. Dr Shenoi will only come if he is required.
