Hello, my son is about to reach 2.5 old and still does not speak much. Though he listens and understands all our instructions & talks but does not feel compelled much to repeat us. He says only bare minimum required words to get his work done. He is quite active in playing with toys and ball games, but much behind than his age group children when it comes to articulate his expressions. Many a times he want to say a full statement but end up saying so many jibberish words, looks like he want to say so much things but not able to do so due to some speech problem. Could you please guide me on should we show him to a speech therapist or a psychiatrist? Are these signs of speech problems? Thanks in advance.

As you have narrated that your son understand instruction. Talk, get his work done in minimum (relevant) words, active and play games. Only your problem is that he does not articulate or communicate in flow and is not able to express in one go. These are all normal activity at this age. He listen more and speak less but retain every conversation in his mind. I do not consider him as abnormal. It is better 1st to consult psychiatrist than speech therapist.

My 8 months old male child vomit just after his mom feeds milk. Also, when we was born, Ultrasound report revealed that his left kidney is mild diluted. Size was 0.06. Doctor said that his kidney would become normal later. Please suggest treatment for curing his vomiting.

Sometimes they vomit overfeed material, sometimes regurgitation. If weight gain is good, vomiting is less in quantity, not too frequent, better leave it as it is, it will get cured on its own.

My child was given easy 6 vaccine at 6 weeks vaccination. Is it a painless vaccine?

Pediatrician,

You should yourself know by now if it is painless. Anyway it is not painless. Pain is a subjective phenomenon, experienced with different grades of severity by different babies.

I had my baby boy born prematurely in 32nd week of pregnancy. He was almost 6 weeks early and weighed 1.3 kg at birth. Fructose-1,6-diphosphatase was detected in his lab diagnosis from the sample collected on the 9th day after his birth. Our pediatrician told us this is a sign of "fructose intolerance" though we both as parents don't have this deficiency. Now my baby is 5 months old (corrected age 3.5 months), almost 5.6 kg weight and we will diagnosis him again for the same deficiency after a month. We are keeping our fingers crossed thinking that this deficiency could have occurred due to his premature age & incomplete growth at 32 weeks and may not exists now. So my question: Can "Fructose-1,6-diphosphatase" occur in babies born prematurely due to incomplete growth when it is not hereditary and may disappear as the baby grows over months?

Fructose-1,6-diphosphatase is an enzyme present in healthy persons, as this enzyme is responsible for metabolism of glucose in the body. It not the presence but deficiency that is of concern. What I understood is your child is not having this enzyme. In absence of this enzyme, it is difficult to digest fruits. Nothing to worry now. As he grows up, you can give less quantity of fruits to your child. But give other natural foods like vegetables and pulses.

Whether you will become pregnant depends on whether you have ovulated prior to sex / You may be still in lactational amenorrhea, ( without periods during breastfeeding ). YOu have to confirm it before taking any step

Hi lybrate-user, you could give chocolates as a reward in case your daughter eats properly for a week. You could make colorful foods like a colorful fruit yoghurt, fruit custard, soups in winters or fruit shakes. Try making her diet as nutritious as possible by adding veggies and cereals. Do not force feed her. Give her small portions to finish and give frequent and small meals. You could start supplement powders to be added in milk like pediasure etc. Get her weight and height checked regularly on your pediatrician visit and maintain her growth record in order to understand her pattern of growth. Hope that helps.

Dear Doctor, Here I would like to give a short-brief of my son's problem of epilepsy in the following words. He got birth in a private clinic here in Delhi in the month of March 13, 2008. The delivery was normal and on the very next day of discharge from the hospital, he got a fits-like behavior and we immediately took him to the same clinic where he got birth and admitted there. As per the Doctor treating him it was said that his sugar got down and he was not needed properly during the night. After 3-4 days treatment, the doctor referred to another hospital i.e. St. Stephens Hospital herein Delhi and got admitted. After a week’s time the child got recovered. After this, about three years there was no problem with the child. However, after the age of 3, we could noticed that when child was walking he was complaining of some difficulty in walking on his right leg and immediately he asks to pick-up and also noticed a slight behavioural activity on his mouth. This is the starting point and we approached Dr. B.K. Gupta (Neurologist herein Delh). As per his presumption it was epilepsy and started treatment for epilepsy by giving the syrup Trioptal. By taking the above medicine continuously there was no problem for about three years. Unfortunately, after third year the child got fits again intermittently and we again approached the same Doctor and he advised to change the dose of the same medicine. But even though the duration of fits got extended but some time it happened intermittently. In the meantime we approached another Dr. (Prof.) Aldrin (Head of Neuro in IBHAS, Delhi). As per him we got the child’s MRI taken and after diagnosis he also advised to continue the same syrup Trioptal. In the meantime the syrup was not available in the market and the doctor advised to take Oxcarbazepine Tab (300 ml in the morning and 400 ml in the evening) plus Frisium 5 mg tab (one tab in the evening). Now for the last one and a half years there is no problem of fits however he has been complaining of tiredness intermittently, mostly after waking up in morning and also when he was about to leave for school and we presume this might be by taking the medicine continuously. Unfortunately, for the last 2-3 months we could notice another problem i.e. His right hand palm gets trembling (jerking) like feeling for a few second mostly every day and by rubbing and/or holding tight it gets normal and when it happens he is not able to move his fingers or hold anything, and also loose strength of his palm and it gets normal within a minute’s time. Earlier it was once in a week but now-a-days it happens almost daily sometime in the afternoon otherwise at school. Last week i.e. On 16/01/2017 we again visited Dr. Aldrin because of this above new problem. After check-up the doctor advised to get EEG report. However, as per the EEG report it was normal and the doctor advised to increase the dose of the existing medicine i.e. Oxcarbazepine 400 ml tab in the morning instead of 300 ml and continue the other medicine as usual. But even though the above medicine has been taking as per the prescription for the last two week the problem still persists. He has also the problem of Adenoid for the last 3-4 years and now-a-days treating by homeopathy medicine. At night when he sleeps he inhales/exhales through mouth and I am presuming that the above problem is due to this reason only. Kindly, for your advice.

You have not mentioned MRI report. It seems that the low sugar at birth might have left a permanent scar in his head and hence your child is having frequent simple partial seizures. Probably needs either adding a new drug or change of drug. Kindly seek advice from your doctor. Best wishes.
