Continue breast feeding till breast is empty or baby is satisfied and keep top milk ready to feed baby if he is still hungery. This is natural and effective way of increasing milk production. Take yourself good nutritious diet.

Don't do force feeding. Start semi solids with one item like dal, khichadi, suji kheer etc what ever amount she takes that shall develop her taste too. Additional top milk with spoon (no bottle). Suji kheer is as good as cerelac. Her weight is with normal range.

How Neglect from Parents Affects Your Child?

How Neglect from Parents Affects Your Child?

Parents sometimes tend to neglect their children due to various reasons. However, this negligence influences the children severely. It can affect the development, personality, relationship traits of the children. Every child needs care and love. Parents are naturally the closest people in a child’s world. Negligence from the closest people can lead to destructive character traits in their personality.

1. Attachment problems: One of the primary and direct effects of parental negligence towards children can lead children to be less attached with family. If a child does not get the warmth and care from parents, he automatically detaches from the family bonding and even does not develop the love and compassionate feelings for the family. This pattern hardly changes over time, and it can even lead to problematic relationship of the child in the future. The child may not be able to be close to his own children later.

2. Brain development: Children are tender and sensitive, just like floral buds. Every stimulus has an action. For instance, a child who is affected by malnutrition suffers from weak neural cells. This can be a reason behind weak brain functions. The basic pillars of brain processes, that is, thinking and logical thinking, everything is affected due to parental negligence. It may lead to low level of self-confidence, depression, frustration, anxiety and stress, troubled thoughts and emotional distortions.

Signs of parental negligence in children

1. Eating Disorders

2. Disrupted Sleep

3. Withdrawal from family bonding

4. Aggressive attitude

5. Bed wetting

6. Missing out school

7. Obsessive traits in behavioural patterns

8. Nightmares

9. Sudden change in attitude and behaviours

10. Depression

11. Violence

Every child seeks complete attention and love of his or her parents. However, parents may neglect them due to work stress, social obligations, personal problems and other such reasons. But parents should be considerate about the developmental barriers that could be posed due to this type of negligence. Some children also show eating habit changes, abusive attitude, violence or sometimes even plunge into complete isolation. While children require free scope to let their emotional and mental development boost with social activities, neglected children can withdraw themselves from social activities.

This means no friends, no social activity in life. This is a major reason for depression, suicidal attempts, deformed thought processes and misled lifestyle. As a parent, you can offer your optimum care and affection to your child to avoid such mental distortions, which can be avoided with love and warmth. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

Hi your child is having worms. He should be given antiworm medication from doctor. No home medication works for this. You should take medication as early as possible. Take care.

Only thing I want to add is that after refrigragion you can thaw the milk by keeping the katori in lukewarm container. And for two days you should express the milk and empty the breast whenever possible just to maintain adequate milk supplies.

With 16 kg at 3 yours of age,immunity is not the issue. Most likely recurrent infection caused by bottle feeding,thumb sucking,candies is the culprit. Proper hygeine care will reduce sufferings.

Let the baby sleep which ever way she is comfortable. Need not force to sleep in a particular position. It won't effect in any way later on. The shape of the head will also get corrected by itself as the baby grows.

Sorry, your information is vague and some inconsistent. If baby can sit well, she must on also turn (rolling). As she can sit well, she may not be suffering from hypotonia. It is necessary to know more information to arrive some conclusion.

Hi my son is almost 6 yrs old and has been suffering from fever on and off for the last 2 and half months. We took all tests including urine test, blood test, chest x ray, ultrasound on the abdomen. All tests were normal but the blood test alone showed that crp count was raising every time the test was taken. He has been on antibiotics (amoxicillin, pencilin, augmentin, pencilin iv) for the last 2 months and still falling sick almost every alternate week. While the doctors say there is some infection that is causing the crp count to increase they are not able to say what is causing it. Should I be worried? should I take him for a full medical checkup for thorough examination? please note that for the last 2 months they were diagnosing as tonsillitis, viral infection, bladder infection, possible pneumonia but nothing came out positive in the tests. He does complain of eye irritation and pain in testicles sometimes. Please provide your insights.

Pediatrician, Mumbai
Fever on and off since 2 months. Means for how many days each episode lasts? your history suggests it is not infectious cause. Measure the temp. With thermometer and record it. Fever charting is very imp. For diagnosis what is crp value any time esr has been done? what are the tests has been done till now? need to see in details. Child is not hospitalised that means in between fever he is fine. Any joint pain, joint swelling? history of tb in family or close contact? what has happened to weight in last 2 months. Most probably fever is due to inflammatory condition. Need to be worked up.

My child baby girl aged 2.6 weight is 11 kg. But her birth weight was 1.6kg. She is 32 week born. Is her weight is Ok according to her age. And now she started going pre- school and usually caught by cold n cough. Sometimes with fever and without fever. Her cough (not dry) persist for 8 - 9 days. What extra supplements and food should I give to her?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
Birthweight becomes 4 times by 2.5 years. According to that it's normal. As the child is going to school at an early age more prone to get viral infections from other children. No need to give any supplements. Give natur. Al nutritious foods. Give for worms.

Your daughter needs to be evaluated by a pediatrcian and psychologist. Depending on that she will need physiotherapy and speech therapy. This will help her in attending a special school.
