Dear Doctors
What will be The Reason of Sudden tightness Of muscle in Stomach Areas (below chest) in Child Of 2 years...
In children, abdominal pain may be related to injury to the abdomen or an illness, such as an upset stomach, an ear infection, a urinary tract infection, or strep throat. . Constipation is a common cause of abdominal pain in children. Some more serious causes of abdominal pain in children include appendicitis, lead poisoning, or problems with the intestines, such as intussusception or malrotation. Girls who start having menstrual periods may have abdominal pain each month, and the pain may be more severe in some months than others. Generalized pain occurs in half of the abdomen or more. Localized pain is located in one area of the abdomen. Babies and toddlers often react differently to pain than older children who can talk about their pain. A baby may become fussy, draw his or her legs up toward the belly, or eat poorly. Older children may be able to point to the area of the pain and describe how severe it is. Have to examine the child to say more

My relative has a 14 year old boy. He is suffering from urine fall on bed in night. Kindly resolve the problem.

Firstly urine r/e to be done to find out any evidence of infection. If urine examination is alright then see nearly at what time child passes urine on bed. Try to ask him to pass urine about half an hour before. In that way he will develop gradual bladder control. Pt. Need psychological support also. He is not to be felt let down if happens to pass urine on bed. Rather make him assure that nothing has happened wrong, you will be alright if you follow the above given advice. If still problem is not solved then medicines are to be given-like adiuretin nasal spray as per advice from doctor.

Hello Doctors, My son born on 10-APR-2016, now he is with 2 months 4 days with weight of around 4 kg 50 gms. My question here is that, he used cry lot in night even after feeding and also we used to follow the feeding as every 2 to 3 hrs gab even if he is sleeping then we used to make him get up and try to feed. Is that correct way or we need to wait his wake up by his own or based on crying? And please suggest the process of feeding throughout the day like need to continue like 2 to 3 hrs gap or not? And we used to feed him mostly with SIMILAC advance 1 formula milk since my wife is not having enough breast milk? Suggest this also.

Hello Doctors,
My son born on 10-APR-2016, now he is with 2 months 4 days with weight of around 4 kg 50 gms.
My quest...
Similac is fine. By enlarge you are doing great. 2-3 hourly feeds are better as newborns don't have much energy reserve in first initial months of life (lack of brown fat. Which requires frequent feeds. I would insist on keep trying for breast feeds as there is nothing superior then breast milk as it is human specific, and baby specific. High immunity provider and iincreases bonding with mom. Secondly, well --> day time more sleep and night time more cry is a normal behavior of a newly born, that's fine. It's not a disease per se.

My daughter age 3 year do not want to eat anything. We are mainly rice eaters. She is greedy for junk foods but do not want to eat the main course. Now a days if we force to take food she vomits after taking a little food. Please give me a solution of this problem. She is getting thiner and thiner day by day.

Once children get habituated to junk food, its difficult to manage, parents need to deal such situation with love. Not forcefully feed her, just give her options or awards for eating normal food or diet instead of junk food. Ask her what she wants to eat, and try to prepare it at home.
