My nephew is 11 months old. When he was born both kidneys are differing in size and doctors mentioned it is not a problem. But from 2 weeks he is suffering from fever irregularly. So we got blood and urine and found there is urine infection. We got the ultrasound of kidney again and there is still the difference. Is that causing this urine infection?

Breastfeeding is a great way of reducing your baby belly as it triggers the contraction in uterus and thus helps the uterus to attain its normal size by shrinking it. Nursing also burns the extra calories of women without even putting an ounce of effort on her part. You may be doing exercise for belly fat but that should be in a correct way with correct postures. Beside this you need to add up high fibre diet, take vitamins like B and C in your diet, whole grain and low fat dairy products, take green tea or warm water. Be stress free, also take proper rest. This all will help you to reduce belly fat.

Here he is drinking and then rolling and then vomiting. He is not vomiting milk but it's like dahi. Dr. he suggested perinorm 8 drops thrice a day is it safe to give him perinorm as I have read a lot of side effect of perinorm. If not safe then kindly suggest me the substitute for d same.

This is a normal reflux. Curd like little regurgitation is common while stomach is being pressed. So nothing to worry. We don't prefer perinorm unless there is severe vomits. The signs you mentioned is just a regurgitation. That does not warrant therapy. Do proper burping post feeds. Keep head up position and demoralized prone position for long. Regards.

I am breastfeeding the baby and there was some blood and pus below the nipple. Now I am applying the ointment, but the lumps are getting formed and I have to expel every 1 hr. How to prevent lumps? And can I use nipple shields from next time? As baby is getting teeth, I think because of sharp teeth I am facing this issue.

MBBS, FELLOWSHIP IN PAEDIATRICS

Babies can cause a little bite and cracked/sore nipples during breast feeding but not lumps. They may be due inadequate emptying of each breast or some hormonal issue which you should get checked. Plus I would also suggest to not your baby from the infected breast with pus. Feed him from second breast.

Hi, As per the recommendations all mothers has to give only breast feeding for first 6 months of age to their babies. If following points met, then your baby is getting sufficient milk from mother: 1. Mother is giving breast feeds more than 8 times per day. 2. Baby is sleeping well after each feed. 3. Baby should pass urine more than 6 times per day. 4. Baby should have adequate weight gain (atleast baby's current weight should be 900g - 1 kg more than the birth weight if age is 3 months completed, has the child grows well, the rate of weight gain will vary, have a regular check up of weight once in a month). ENCOURAGE THE MOTHER. MOTHER SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY STRESS / ANXIETY. MOTHER'S MILK IS THE BEST. DON'T INTRODUCE ANY FOODS TILL 6 MONTHS OF AGE.

Temper Tantrums

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health
Pediatrician, Hyderabad

 

Close-up image a boy with a pouty face.

What are temper tantrums?

Temper tantrums are a way a young child lets out strong emotions before he or she is able to express them in socially acceptable ways. Although a child may seem totally out of control, these fits of rage, stomping, screaming, and throwing himself or herself to the floor are a normal part of childhood development. Temper tantrums often happen only with a parent. They are a way a child communicates his or her feelings. Parents can learn from their child by understanding the situation that caused the temper tantrum to erupt.

Temper tantrums often begin at about 1 year of age and continue until age 2 to 3. They begin to diminish as a child becomes more able to communicate his or her wants and needs.

What causes temper tantrums?

As a young child learns more and becomes more independent, he or she wants to do more than he or she can physically and emotionally manage. This is frustrating to the child and the frustrations are expressed in a variety of ways. Temper tantrums are worse and happen more often when a child is hungry, tired, or sick. Some reasons children have temper tantrums include the following:

  • Want to be on their own, and get upset when they can't do what they want

  • Are in a transition (such as from day care to home)

  • Are trying to get attention to test the rules

  • Have something taken away from them

  • Have not learned all the words to tell you what they are feeling or want and this upsets them

  • Do not understand what you want them to do

  • Are tired or hungry

  • Are worried or upset

  • Feel stress in the home

How to prevent temper tantrums

Although temper tantrums sometimes happen without warning, parents can often tell when a child is becoming upset. Knowing the situations when your child is more likely to have a tantrum and thinking ahead may help. An example is not letting your child become overtired or hungry. Some suggestions for preventing or minimizing temper tantrums include the following:

  • Stick to routines for meals and sleep times. Avoid long outings, delayed meals, and naps.

  • Distract your child with a toy he or she is allowed to have.

  • Be reasonable about what to expect from your child, and do not expect your child to be perfect.

  • Help your child to avoid frustration. Prepare your child for changes or events by talking about them before they happen.

  • Let your child know your rules and stick to them.

How to respond during a temper tantrum

The following are helpful hints regarding the most appropriate ways to respond during your child's temper tantrum:

  • Stay calm.

  • Ignore the child until he or she is calmer. Keep doing whatever you were doing before the tantrum happens.

  • Do not hit or spank your child.

  • Do not give in to the tantrum. When parents give in, children learn to use inappropriate behavior to get their way.

  • Do not bribe your child to stop the tantrum. The child then learns to act inappropriately to get a reward.

  • Remove potentially dangerous objects from your child or your child's path.

  • Use time-out for a short period to allow the child to get back in control.

What else should parents know about temper tantrums?

Temper tantrums generally happen less often as children get older. Children should play and act normally between tantrums. However, talk with your child's healthcare provider if any of the following happen:

  • Temper tantrums are severe, last long, or happen very often.

  • Your child has a lot of trouble talking and cannot let you know what he or she needs.

  • Temper tantrums continue or get worse after 3 to 4 years of age.

  • Your child has signs of illness along with temper tantrums or holds his or her breath to cause fainting.

  • Your child harms himself or herself or others during tantrums.

Fever in Children And Home Remedies

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH)
Pediatrician, Gondiya
Fever in Children And Home Remedies

Fever remains the most common concern prompting parents to present their child to the emergency department. Fever has traditionally been defined as a rectal temperature over 100.4 F or 38 C. Temperatures measured at other body sites are usually lower. The threshold for defining a fever does vary significantly among different individuals, since body temperatures can vary by as much as 1 F. Low-grade fevers are usually considered less than 102.2 F (39 C).

Fever itself is not life-threatening unless it is extremely and persistently high, such as greater than 107 F (41.6 C) when measured rectally. Risk factors for worrisome fevers include age under 2 years (infants and toddlers) or recurrent fevers lasting more than one week. Fever may indicate the presence of a serious illness, but usually a fever is caused by a common infection, most of which are not serious. The part of the brain called the hypothalamus controls body temperature. The hypothalamus increases the body's temperature as a way to fight the infection. However, many conditions other than infections may cause a fever.

Fever in Children - Causes:

Causes of fever include:

When to seek medical care:

  • The child is younger than 6 months of age (regardless of prematurity).
  • One is unable to control the fever.
  • One suspects a child may become dehydrated from vomitingdiarrhea, or not drinking (for example, the child has sunken eyes, dry diapers, tented skin, cannot be roused, etc.).
  • The child has been to a doctor but is now getting worse or new symptoms or signs have developed.

Although you may have done your best to care for your child, sometimes it is smart to take your child to the emergency department. The child's doctor may meet you there, or the child may be evaluated and treated by the emergency doctor.

Take a child to an emergency clinic when any of the following happen:

  • One has serious concerns and is unable to contact the child's doctor.
  • One suspects the child is dehydrated.
  • seizure occurs.
  • The child has a purple or red rash.
  • A change in consciousness occurs.
  • The child's breathing is shallow, rapid, or difficult.
  • The child is younger than 2 months of age.
  • The child has a headache that will not go away.
  • The child continues to vomit.
  • The child has complex medical problems or takes prescription medications on a chronic basis (for example, medications prescribed for more than two weeks' duration)

Home Remedies for Fever in Children:

The three goals of home care for a child with fever are to control the temperature, prevent dehydration, and monitor for serious or life-threatening illness.

  • The first goal is to make the child comfortable by reducing the fever below 102 F (38.9 C) with medications and appropriately dressing the child. A warm water bath can also be helpful .
  • To check a child's temperature, one will need a thermometer. Different types of thermometers are available, including glass, mercury, digital, and tympanic (used in the ear).
    • Glass thermometers work well but may break, and they take several minutes to get a reading.
    • Digital thermometers are inexpensive and obtain a reading in seconds.
  • Oral temperatures may be obtained in older children who are not mouth breathing or have not recently consumed a hot or cold beverage.
  • Monitoring and documenting the fever pattern is achieved using a thermometer and a handmade chart.
  • Acetaminophen  and ibuprofen  are used to reduce fever.
    • Follow the dosage and frequency instructions printed on the label.
    • Remember to continue to give the medication over at least 24 hours or the fever will usually return.
  • Children should not be overdressed indoors, even in the winter.
    • Overdressing keeps the body from cooling by evaporation, radiation, conduction, or convection.
    • The most practical solution is to dress the child in a single layer of clothing, then cover the child with a sheet or light blanket.
  • A sponge bath in warm water will help reduce a fever.
    • Such a bath is usually not needed but may more quickly reduce the fever.
    • Put the child in a few inches of warm water, and use a sponge or washcloth to wet the skin of the body and arms and legs.
    • The water itself does not cool the child. The evaporation of the water off the skin cools the child. So, do not cover the child with wet towels, which would prevent evaporation.
    • Contrary to the popular folk remedy, never apply alcohol in a bath or on the skin to reduce fever. Alcohol is usually dangerous to children.

 

  • The second goal is to keep the child from becoming dehydrated. Humans lose extra water from the skin and lungs during a fever.
    • Encourage the child to drink clear fluids but without caffeine (and not water). Water does not contain the necessary electrolytes and glucose. Other clear fluids are chicken soup,  other rehydrating drinks available at the grocery or drugstore.
    • A child should urinate light-colored urine at least every four hours if well hydrated.
    • If diarrhea or vomiting prevents one from assessing hydration, seek medical attention.

 

  • The third goal is to monitor the child for signs of serious or life-threatening illness.
    • A good strategy is to reduce the child's temperature below 102 F (39 C).
    • Also, make sure the child is drinking enough clear fluids .
    • If both these conditions are met and the child still appears ill, a more serious problem may exist.
    • If a child refuses to drink or has a concerning change in appearance or behavior, seek medical attention.

My baby do not take breast milk from birth. What medicines should be given to her to gain weight as she is 5 month old?
No medicine for gaining weight is going to help rather it may do more harm. Milk in appropriate quantity is only medicine. You may start semi solids like suji kheer Dal khichadi etc once in a day to start. For further information please consult your pediatrician in person.
