19 month baby 9. 750 weight ,doesnt eat properly stop to give mother milk or not?

Pediatrician, Pune
Breast milk does not provide the adequate nutrition for growth after ~ 18 months of age, try to avoid and stop breast milk, just empty sucking may give him false satiety due to swallowing of air, and he may not eat proper food required for his growth.

Feeding uptil 1years is more than sufficient. After that baby gets nothing from feed but mother looses her calcium. Try to feed your child with proper food at night. Try to make her sleep with someone elze except you. In few days she will leave the night habit also.

My daughter age is 7 years. Since one month, pus is discharging from her left ear with bad smell. Already consulted an E.N.T. Specialist. He suggested to use candid ear dropsfor 10 days. But invain.

MS - ENT
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Aurangabad
Hello, Probably your daughter is having a fungal infection of the outer ear . If she is not responding to Candid ear drops , then she may require an examination of ear under microscope ( called otomicroscopy ) and suction clearance. This will help in faster healing as well as a confirmed diagnosis / to rule out any other ear pathology.

Salivary gland called Parotid gang is mostly in front and below the ears. It's swelling is known as mumps. Giving Paracetamol should help. Cold compress and giving plenty of liquids to drink also will help. Pain behind the ear may also be due a ear infection or lymph node enlargement due to other infection in the vicinity.

And yesterday baby was also taken out at 5: 00pm. And also during feeding the baby is removing some milk out from her mouth. We visited a doctor today.

Go on trying to latch her on nipple for some time and then give her expressed milk before she is tired but not with bottle use spoon. Try yourself to pull nipple with your thumb and finger repeatedly if it is still persisting.

Preserve child's milk teeth

BDS, Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Research
Dentist, Kolkata
It is always better to preserve a child's teeth till its succadenous one comes to a proper level. If there are cavities in a childs teeth go for filling or other conservative treatment as it preserves the arch lenght and maintenance of space for permanent teeth. Try to avoid dental extractions of cavitated milk teeth.

The poor appetite of their kids is a common complaint among mothers. In most of the cases, kids make up for their poor diet by eating more at the next meal. For kids over 1 year old, appetites increase and decrease according to age, energy levels etc. This is a common problem among young children between the ages of 2 to 6 years. However, if weight loss accompanies your toddler loss of appetite, then you must consult a pediatrician to identify the cause & correct it. Causes of Loss of Appetite In Children: Here are 10 main reasons for toddler no appetite: 1. Slow Growth Rate: Changes in growth can cause an appetite slump in children. During the first year, children grow rapidly. But after the first birthday the growth of the child slows down, and she may eat less food now. During this time, a decline in appetite is perfectly normal. 2. Sickness: Illness can often cause a significant loss of appetite in children. If your child is suffering from sore throat, stomach flu, diarrhea, headache, fever or other symptoms, then she may eat lesser than what she normally eats. Thankfully, most of the children recover their appetite when they get better. 3. Stress: Stress can have many negative effects on toddlers and young children, including loss of appetite. If you find your child is losing interest in eating or having a hard time sleeping, then. To cure the poor appetite of your kid, you need to identify the cause of her stress and alleviate it. Some common causes of stress during childhood are: •Family issues like a death in the family, death of a pet or the birth of a sibling. •Bullying •Inability to cope with academic pressure and the impractical expectations of parents. 4. Depression: Depression can be another reason for child loss of appetite. Most of the parents mistake depression for sadness. But sadness and depression are not the same. It is important for you to understand the difference between sadness and depression so that your child can get the help she needs. Feelings of sadness go away with the passage of time, but depression does not. Depression not only makes the child sad, but also interferes with her normal life. If your child shows a lack of interest in activities that she previously enjoyed performing, then chances are that she may be suffering from depression. A change in eating habits is a strong indicator of depression. You may need to seek medical care to help your child come out of depression. 5. Anorexia Nervosa: Sometimes, in a bid to ape their screen idols children develop a psychological aversion to eating. They try to go without eating as long as possible. Even when they eat, they choose a low-fat food and later feel guilty about eating it. If you can relate your child to this food fad, she may be suffering from Anorexia Nervosa. You must take her to an eating disorder specialist. The specialist will tell you how to help your child regain a healthy appetite (1). 6. Medications: Several medications can take a toll on your child’s appetite. If the pediatrician prescribed antibiotics for your child recently, chances are she may be suffering from a poor appetite. A loss of appetite in a child is a common side effect of antibiotics (2). 7. Anemia: Anemia is another possible cause of the decline in appetite among children. A low iron count is common in kids who don’t consume an iron-rich diet. Children suffering from anemia seem weaker, tired and irritable than others. If left untreated, anemia can interfere with your child’s development and school performance. Get a blood test done if you suspect anemia in your child. 8. Intestinal Worms: Intestinal worms can cause loss of appetite in kids. Worms enter into the kid’s digestive system and live there like a parasite, causing intestinal bleeding, loss of appetite, dysentery, etc. 9. Constipation: Irregular bowel movements in children can lead to constipation. Tips To Prevent A Loss Of Appetite In Children: Here are some handy tips to prevent a loss of appetite in children: Offer food that is also a visual treat for your kids. You can present healthy foods in a delicious avatar. •Do not argue or scold the children during the mealtime. •Adjust the meal schedules so that you serve food only when your child is hungry. •Encourage your child to make healthy food choices. •Allow your child to snack between the meals. •Serve small portions at regular intervals. •Encourage your child to be more physically active. •Do not force your child to eat if she is not hungry. As a parent, demanding that she finishes the food on her plate is a bad idea. Remember, it is common for children to lose their appetite, so don’t be alarmed every time it happens. If your child is healthy, happy and can sleep well, then there is no need to worry. But a prolonged loss of appetite needs medical attention. So keep an eye on your child’s eating habits.

He is suffering from constipation.  he should be on a good fibre rich diet. Give plenty of water.  regular laxative if needed along with a good diet plan. As constipation is a chronic problem in most cases and most common cause is habitual constipation.  You must ensure a regular bowel time after a drink irrespective of passage of stool. He should be sitting for sometime say 10_ 15 minutes in a fixed time daily in a Indian style toilet. She appears  to be a fussy eater. Most importantly you need to be patient with her. Don't shout or scream while feeding her. Try to make her feeding time fun or playtime. After not giving any food for 3 hrs at least make him sit with the food he likes (solid foods not pastes or liquids) with spoon and katori or fork. Let him at least play with the food for some time. If he likes milk a lot then try to give solid like plain rice, oats. Chatu. With the pediasure You can have a deal with him. He will take 1 sip milk and 1 bite of something  This way he will learn to chew Threptin  biscuits are good to taste and are rich in protein (casein) Avoid giving him chips fast food Makes small pieces of food  and ask  her to try just 1 bite. If he likes the taste she will have another. If he likes chicken. Give him chicken in different  ways. Introduce him to egg. Boiled or omelette whatever he likes. Play with him till he feels tired. Playing running will improve digestion. Don't loose temper You can give him  one egg a day Cucumbers made into small pieces will help  with problem of flatulence. Children have to deal with new  food, new habits. So they act out. Do not get flustered if he criesmakes a scene. Sit quietly, go to another room, ignore him. He will learn that bad behaviour  will not allow him to get her own way. I know it's very difficult but keep trying as that's the best you can give him. Pain  abdomen  may be due indigestion earmarked, gastritis. Good hand hygiene: Regular nail trimming Washing hand after each toilet visit. And before taking any food in any form Also take care of drinking water quality. Test Adviced: CBC with AEC Stool and urine R/E, M/E USG abdomen Share the reports if any Kindly do the follo You can check out the Health blog I manage with my wife. It has many helpful tips.
