You can pull try manually pulling out the nipple with thumb and forefinger. There is another technique called syringing which will also help you pull out the retracted nipple.

General Physician,
From my experience if you give bottle feed it is a reason no matter however you sterilise the bottle. You can feed with spoon and the best is to give breast milk aways and now you can start homemade semisolids also. Here ad there are pus cells you can give antibiotics if stopping bottle does not help and infrom me.

How Breathing Through the Mouth Affects Oral Health in Children

How Breathing Through the Mouth Affects Oral Health in Children

Mouth breathing in children is very common and while a kid with open mouth might seem cute, it is not always the case. The parents need to be made aware that a child breathing through the mouth all the time is not normal and it is high time they find a way to manage it.

A little understanding of the effects of the mouth breathing habit on the child's health in general and oral health in particular can be an eye-opener for the parent. For an educated person, there are obvious symptoms, which indicate that the child is a mouth-breather.

These symptoms include:

  1. Dryness of the lips
  2. Crowding of the front teeth
  3. Snoring
  4. Sleeping with the mouth open
  5. Recurrent infections of the airways including sinusitis and middle ear infections
  6. Bad breath

Common causes include:

  1. Chronic nasal obstruction/congestion because of which the child is not able to get enough oxygen through the nose.
  2. Enlarged tonsils or adenoids
  3. Thumb or finger-sucking habit
  4. Recurrent respiratory infections

Effects of mouth breathing on oral health:

Mouth breathing may seem like a harmless habit, but has serious effects on the oral and dental health of the child. Some of them are discussed below.

  1. Dry mouth: A constantly open mouth can lead to drying up of the saliva. This in turn leads to reduced effects of saliva including the flushing effect on the bacteria and the food deposits. This leads to increased chances of tooth decay and gum diseases.
  2. Tooth decay: With reduced saliva, the pH remains acidic for a longer period of time, leading to increased chances of tooth decay.
  3. Gum diseases: Reduced amounts of saliva also leads to increased gum disease and periodontal disease as the bacteria are not removed and have a conducive environment to act upon.
  4. Facial development: A mouth breathing child maintains a different posture than a nose breather. This leads to a narrow and long face, flattened nose, smaller nostrils, reduced facial tone, thin upper lip, pouty upper lip, and a small lower jaw.
  5. Speech: An open mouth causes the tongue to thrust into the palate when talking. This leads to altered pronunciation of some sounds; especially and can cause lisping.
  6. Braces: Mouth breathing causes multiple challenges including prolonged treatment period, inability to close the gaps, reduced stability of the realigned teeth, and increased chances of relapse. The added complication of increased gum disease and tooth decay makes it worse. The habit needs to be corrected first before going in for braces.

If that sounds like a long list, they are not all inclusive. Early intervention in the habit can correct and negate all these effects. Talk to your dentist to know how to help your mouth breathing child.

Allergic asthma is a very common presentation in the clinics these days. Patients usually present with allery to dust, smoke, spices etc which initiate sneezing progressing to itching in eyes, rhinitis (running nose), throat pain and eventually cough and difficulty in breathing.
in todays world it is almost imposssible to always avoid the allergen, so the better option is to strengthen the body to fight against these.
Ayurveda advocates certain daily regimens which can help in this.
1.Proper oral hygiene has to be maintained. Practice tooth brushing at morning and before bedtime. Ensure proper mouth wash after every meal.
2. Pratimarsh nasya - This is the practise of instilling oil in the nose. This can be practised easily by an individual. Instill 4-5 drops of sesame oil daily in each nostril and inhale deeply. This has to be practiced early in the morning.
3.Make a habit of applying Rasnadi powder (An ayurvedic medicated poweder) over the vertex immediately after bath and also at bedtime. Avoid sleeping directly under the fan or other cooling sources.
4. Intake of buttermilk processed with turmeric poder, curry leaves, ginger is also useful.
5. Add ginger, garlic esentially in all meals.
6. Yogic practices like breathing exercises can support the lung capacity and cleansing practices like neti can help in developing desensitization to allergens.
7. Drinking water should be boiled with cumin seeds and always consumed as lukewarm.
8. Oil massage before bath can help a lot. Sesame oil can be used for this, for those having frequent episodes of chest congestion muatard oil will give better results. Take bath in warm water only.

Sir, I have twin (Boy & Girl) born on 02.05. 2015. They are taking Breast feeding & Pronan 1. But, sometimes they after feeding hiccup. Is it normal? We use to give them Boil water after cooling. After taking the water the hiccup stop. Is it correct method?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
Hiccups occur due to irritation of diaphragm after feeding. I think you are over feeding. You can feed only with breast milk and you shouldn't give water either boiled or not boiled.

My baby was eight months old. Past two weeks her stool was gray and some times green color. Is it normal? Before it happens like this few months back I consult to doctor he advice it's normal. But sometimes it's repeating. Is it normal. I'm so much worried about this. Now using Ayurvedic medicine for this problem. But it's continuing the same. please help me.

General Physician,
First of all, if you bottle feed, stop bottle and feed from a cup or glass/ sipper (not nipple & bottle) and of course breast milk to continue. Bottle fed babies usually show this kind of stools. Then inform me.

My new born baby girl has 2mm pda. What is the treatment for this? She is now 4months age.

DMB
Pediatrician, Chennai
Ductus closure is clearly indicated for any child or adult who is symptomatic from significant left-to-right shunting through the PDA. In asymptomatic patients with significant left-to-right shunting that results in left heart enlargement, closure is indicated to minimize the risk of complications in the future. The size of PDA is not relevant but its impact on the left ventricle is. Your child needs regular follow up and trans catheter occlusion if her heart function is compromised. In case you are getting any invasive procedures like scopies, catheterisation or dental extraction, she will need antibiotics before procedure to prevent a serious infection called bacterial endocarditis.

Is there any medicine or injection available to increase breast milk apart from perinorm, lactocare. please reply as soon as possible.

No, there is no such remedy. Frequent breastfeeding either till breast is empty or baby is satisfied, may increase milk.

My little daughter (2 years 10 month old) dos not want to take any kind of food every time she want to take mother's milk, please give us some advice.

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ahmedabad
At this age, mother's milk does not provide any kind of nutrition. There is a thing called positive reinforcement - means giving reward every time she tries new food, may be small. Stop breast feeding, it is really not useful at this age. Please do not punish or use any kind of negative reinforcement for the child.

My son 3 years old repeatedly getting cold & cough, month 3 times observed, cough with phlegm no fever & other problem kid is active. Doc suspects on allergy. AEC test done count is 468, recommending inhaler & asthalin syrup Pl suggest for small kid don't want give inhaler.

MD PEDIATRICS
Pediatrician, Bangalore
Most probably it is allergic cough, hence giving an inhaler is the right thing to do. Inhalers do not cause any side effects on the body as it is not absorbsed `systemically.

I have 10 month old baby. He has teeth. He bites me very much during feeding. I give him curd, soup, daal etc. But inspite this he bites me very much. Its very painful. How can I deal with it. Please give me some suggestions.

Your baby is already 10 months. Reduce breast milk intake with complemepntary feeds which you do already. Do not breast feed when child is v hungry or when not much of milk is avaible to the kid. Help with complementary feed prior to breast feed. When ullcerated, avoid that breast for suckling, instead express milk by years hand or pump and feed the baby with a container. Use masse cream for nipple healing.
