Babies may cry for no reason at some or other times for no fault of mothers. This is an universal truth. Accept this and stop worrying, you will enjoy parenting. See that baby puts on 500-700 gms weight per month.

Hi, my daughter is 8 months old. What can I give her to eat other than cerelac and soups.
We advise only home available foods which are freshly prepared, easily digestible, hygienic. If you have already started semisolid feeds like kichdi, introduce mashed vegetables like potatoes & fruits like apple, banana etc. Slowly you can start feeding all the food items prepared at home so that the child takes part in family diet at 1 year of age.

Neonatal hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver that occurs in early infancy, usually one to two months after birth. About 20 per cent of infants who develop neonatal hepatitis were infected with a virus causing inflammation of the liver either before birth through their mother, or shortly after birth. Viruses which can cause neonatal hepatitis in infants include cytomegalovirus, rubella (measles), and hepatitis A, B and C. In the remaining 80 per cent of affected infants, no specific cause can be identified, but many experts suspect a virus is to blame.There is no specific treatment for neonatal hepatitis. Vitamin supplements are usually prescribed and many infants are given medications which improve bile flow. Formulas containing fats more easily digested by the body are also given. It will take 2 months to cure fully

Hello Doctor. My son is 16 months now. He is extremely hyperactive child, showing the following symptoms- 1) He doesn't like to play with toys. He just likes climbing on tables, chairs and window grills.  2) If we get him new toys, he will just see it for a few minutes and then throw it away.  3) He wants to be out of the house all time. He cry's to go with any unknown person when they are leaving the house.  4) If we keep him out, he will just start walking. He will not even care to see if we are there with him or not.  5) He is very impatient for something he likes. For example he is very restless while feeding him oranges. He will not allow you to peel it. He just wants it immediately and will hit you if you don't give him fast. 5) Although we keep talking to him, till now he doesn't utter any words, no actions like'bye' etc. He only yells aloud. 6) He just cannot sit in one place and needs someone constantly. If you don't play with him even for a few minutes, he will put his head on the floor and start moaning in frustration. 7) He has been a troublesome child right from birth. Hardly used to sleep for just a few minutes during the whole day and night. Now, although his sleeping pattern has improved during the nights. During the day he still sleeps less. Probably around 1 hour if at all he sleeps. 8) When he was smaller, around 9-12 months, he used to watch television advertisements with great attention. He would not blink his eyes even if you nudge him or pat him lightly on his head. This is the only thing that grabs his attention, even now. Doctor, is my child showing signs of any disorder or is it too early to predict? Does he need any treatment? please help. Thanks.

Firstly treat his loose motions as it is being 6 days now. Increase intake of water in form of ors, lemon juice, fruit juice, buttermilk. Give over ripped banana, pomegranate juice, curd and rice. These are easy to digest and will give energy also.

You can use diaper but wash the area, dry it and apply coconut oil then use diaper. One diaper for maximum six hours and then wash, dry, oil again. Between the diapers give some time, off diaper.

What Is Early Childhood Development?

Panchkula & Delhi

Ask Free Question

The early childhood period is considered to be the most important developmental phase throughout the lifespan.  This period focuses on the physical, social/emotional and language/cognitive domains of development of a child, which have direct effects on their overall development as an adult in the future.

Physical Development: Physical developments of a child are associated with the motor skills and physical growth of the child. As a child grows and his or her nervous system become more mature, the child becomes more capable of performing increasingly complex actions such as walking, running, balance, and coordination which involve the larger muscles like arms and legs, as well as, some more intricate skills such as drawing, writing, grasping objects, throwing, waving, and catching, involving the smaller muscles in the fingers, toes, eyes, and other areas. Physical growth follows a directional pattern, such as the body's core, legs and arms develop before the small muscles in the fingers and hands.  The muscles in the center of the body become stronger and develop before those in the feet and hands. Development goes from the head to the toes.

Cognitive Development: Cognitive abilities are associated with memory, reasoning, problem-solving and thinking that continue to emerge throughout childhood. There are four Stages of Cognitive Development:

Stage

Age Period Between

Milestones

Sensorimotor Stage

Birth to age 2

Respond to sensory stimuli by simple motor skills.

Preoperational Stage

Age 2 to 6

Learn to use language, but do not understand logic or mentally manipulate information and understand others' point of view.

Concrete Operational Stage

Age 7 to 11

Begin to think logically about concrete events, but have difficulty understanding abstract or hypothetical concepts.

Formal Operational Stage

Age 12 to adulthood

Able to think about abstract concepts and develop skills such as logical thought, deductive reasoning, and systematic planning.

Language Development: It is the most remarkable development in children. According to several researches, it is found that language development begins at fetal level, as the fetus is able to identify the speech and sound patterns of the mother's voice and by the age of four months, a child can distinguish between sounds and read lips. Infants are able to differentiate between speech sounds from all languages; however, around the age of 10 months they lose this ability and begin to recognize their native language only.

No special food will increase breasmilk. You meat nutritious foods and drink lot of water. Only suckling the baby and positive attitude towards breastfeeding is sufficient. Sleep pattern slowly change to nocturnal pattern. You shouldn't give any sedative.

Hi mother milk is best for the baby. The formula you are giving is ok but is to be given only if required. All mothers always produce adequate amount of milk. Be confident. Take care.

My son is 3 years old and weighs only 12 kg. He is otherwise active but doesn't want to study. At such a foundation whenever I sit with him to make him write or color he is always disinterested. I have tried offering gifts to him as well as bought new colorful books but everything fails. He is very observant and want to just listen to the mechanics of every technology and machine used. He has a great grasping power and wants to only. Listen to stories well everything except for studies. Everyone tells me to start tuition which do not want to at such a age. I worry if he will be able to cope up the pressure of studies.

Give nutritious rich in protein diet well cooked in oil in addition to milk, green veg, fruits and dry fruits. As you have mentioned, your son is active and understand and grasp well, don't force him to read or write. Let him do at his pleasure. You have to cop with him.
