My little baby girl who is 6 months old is having sticky eyes when she gets up. Since last 4 months, she is having tears coming out from her left eye. I consulted my doctor, she said her tear glands are forming so there is nothing to worry. Will get alright on its own. There is a yellow discharge which comes out when she gets up. Kindly suggest.

This is a common problem in newborn where they have eye punctum closed . Everyone secretes tears to lubricate eye. All tears are drained through that punctum to nose. So when a human being cries, his/her has nasal discharge too with tears secretion. Your baby has blocked punctum. Repeated Massage on nasal bridge really helps. Opthalmologist should be consulted if it severe at 6 months of age. Very fee requires syringing.

Is it like if we are giving IPV then OPV is not necessary at the same time. At 6 week for new born.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Bangalore
Ipv is a superior vaccine and used all over the world. However government wants to give only opv from their side so they are promoting opv to build up immunity of the entire population. For the sake of your child ipv is enough.

Yes many a kids gets neonatal conjuctivitis due to the infective secretion from birth passage. Many a times it heals on its own but sometimes we have to give some eye drops, so its perfectly ok.

SMA (spinal muscular atrophy) is a disease that robs people of physical strength by affecting the motor nerve cells in the spinal cord, taking away the ability to walk, eat, or breathe. It is the number one genetic cause of death for infants. SMA is caused by a mutation in the survival motor neuron gene 1 (SMN1. Chromosome 5 SMA is caused by a deficiency of a motor neuron protein called SMN, for “survival of motor neuron.” This protein, as its name implies, seems to be necessary for normal motor neuron function. Its deficiency is caused by genetic flaws (mutations) on chromosome 5 in a gene called SMN1. Neighboring SMN2 genes can in part compensate for nonfunctional SMN1 genes. Other rare forms of SMA (non-chromosome 5) are caused by mutations in genes besides SMN. In several forms of SMA, respiratory muscle weakness is a significant problem. It’s the most common cause of death in types 1 and type 2 chromosome 5 (SMN-related) SMA. When the respiratory muscles weaken, air doesn’t move into and out of the lungs very well, with subsequent adverse effects on general health. Signs of weakening respiratory muscles are headaches, difficulty sleeping at night, excess sleepiness during the day, poor concentration, chest infections and, eventually, heart damage and respiratory failure. Often, in infantile-onset SMA, the muscles between the baby's ribs are very weak, while the diaphragm muscle stays fairly strong. This leads to children who appear to be breathing by moving their bellies rather than their chests and to a pear-shaped body in these infants. For chromosomal changes there is hardly no specific treatment and you have to explain the nature of your child's trouble . He needs a neurological treatment for relief of symptoms.

He has completed 9 months but his weight is not increasing from 5th month. His weight is still 8 kg as he was in 5th month. I am giving him diet of meshed cereals, cerelac, and some vegetables (5 meals a day ). Also to mention that he does not like mother's milk, every time he refuses that within a minute or two. Please suggest.

Don't compare his wt with 5 month's wt. Now his expected wt should be about 9 kg. 8 kg is slightly at lower side. As the child grows, his wt doesn't increase with the same pace as at younger age. I am not seeing any place of milk or its product in his 5 meals. Give him ideally 2 meals but not more than 3 meals in a day consisting of varieties like ghee added haluwa, rice/ sujee kheer, khichadi, dal-roti very small pieces, vegetables well cooked in ghee/ oil, fruits etc of his taste and to develop taste. 3-4 times sweetened milk and rest breast milk 3-4 times. Probably he may be refusing mother's milk because she may be trying to feed her own milk most of time. If it is so I hope with above regime he shall like mother's feed and start gaining wt.

गर्भावस्था का दूध दोषयुक्त नही है। कब्ज के लिए खाने मे हरी पत्ते की सब्जी फल दे व पानी पिलाये। दूध मे चीनी के बजाय शक्कर मिलाकर देने से भी कब्ज दूर हो सकता है। इसकी ओर भी उचित ध्यान केंद्रित करे इस से चिड़चिड़ापन दूर हो सकता है। खून की कमी आयरन की दवाई से ठीक हो सकती है तथा हरी पत्ती की सब्जी भी सहायक है।

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated? What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems? What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication there will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly and spine block injection is effective for six months and hashimoto's thyroiditis is an auto immune disease where we can control it with medication but not cure it completely.

hi this is doctor Kalpesh from Pune this is a very good question you have ask about the temperature regulation system development in babies when babies inside the womb baby thermostatic settings are not that developed after delivery baby starts getting accommodated to the external environmental temperature and hypothalamic axis starts taking over the control of temperature regulation system TCP is not getting adopted to external environment you need to support baby buy wrapping With warm clothes keeping the temperature up to 30 degree Celsius you can also keep up baby along with your body touch so that baby can get heat from your body that is also called as Kangaroo Mother Care for the baby air conditioning is useful to prevent sweating during summer season and maintaining the hydration of your body but that is not at all feasible for babies you can get consulted for further details about baby babycare,regards

Every patient is concerned about their child health , Despite great strides in decay prevention, one in four young children develops signs of tooth decay before they start school. Half of all children between the ages of 12 and 15 have cavities. Dental care should begin as soon as a child’s first tooth appears, usually around six months,Teeth can be wiped with a clean, damp cloth or a very soft brush. At about age 2, you can let kids try brushing for themselves -- although it’s important to supervise.

He probably has a mild urine infection. Get a urine routine and urine culture test done. See that he drinks plenty of liquids.

My baby is 9 months nw and is active but his weight is below 8 kg .should I use any vitamis to increase his weight

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatrician, Delhi
At 9 months, 8kg weight is about OK. Multivits dont help in weight gain as such. Give your baby some khichdi, suji kheer, and other home food with a little extra butter/ghee. Continue breast feeding . You could give bananas, and fruit juice too. Increasing complimentary feeding like this will help in weight gain.

It is a good thing that your boy is active and otherwise healthy. His weight may or may not be fine for his age. But most important thing is that he should regularly gain weight as per expected. This you can get in your vaccination card where you will find a growth chart.  you can plot his weight against her age at regular intervals like say 3 monthly and see whether he is gaining weight normally or not. Normally a kid of his age should gain approximately 2 kg per year.

Best contraceptive is that which suits you and you like. New Copper T is quite good and safe, low oestrogen OCP can be used. Before adopting any contraceptive method, consult Family planing Counselor.

Oatmeals are for reduction of body fat but not at the cost of lactation or child feed. You must take healthy and balanced diet.
