My baby boy is 3 months old and he is suffering from cold for last 15 days. He is taking ALEX plus drop for last 7 days. Does this medicine cause sweating for baby? And how long it takes to cure his cold?

HI. Alex plus syrup contains Paracetamol which reduces body temperature which can cause sweating. If cold is lasting since so many days then its better you get baby examined. Take care!

Ideally give feed every two hours and better still on demand. If you give powder do not give in bottle but feed with spoon, properly mixed as per the direction.

The tiny tots must use a toothbrush with a small rounded brush head and soft bristles. It helps in cleaning their milk teeth thoroughly.

Impact Of Modern Day Gadgets On Kids!

Impact Of Modern Day Gadgets On Kids!

Childhood memories are always special, we often get nostalgic reminiscing about them. When we were kids there was a range of outdoor activities, games and creative things to do, something to look forward and run around. However, the definition of modern childhood has undergone a sea change.

If you have a child in your home, you will be acutely aware of the gadget addiction phenomenon. Be it a mobile, iPad, television or gaming console, children today are almost inseparable from their gadgets. From a 2-year-old baby to 12-year-old teenagers, all can be found glued to their favorite gadgets, due to which physical activity and outdoor games have ceased to exist in their lives.

Further, this addiction to modern day gadgets is triggering a negative impact on their health. A number of studies indicate that the incidence of obesity, depression, and even diabetes (juvenile diabetes) amongst children and teenagers is on a mercurial rise, because of such a lifestyle.

But who is to be blamed for this?

It is common knowledge today, that parents across that globe try to deliver the best of everything to their kids, but sometimes we forget that more than things and luxury, our kids need our time.

Here are some effective measures to curb the gadget menace

  • Communicate: As a modern working parent, life is extremely hectic. However, make sure you spend some quality time with your child daily. Talk to your child about different things and understand what is going in their daily life.

  • Understand your child: Communication paves the way for better understanding, but as a parent, you have to make an effort to understand your child, as each child is unique and so are their needs.

  • Educate yourself: Make sure you are fully aware of what is going on with your child and how he or she is doing throughout the day in different areas, be it school or other activities. Talk to the other parents, and know what your children's peer group are doing.

  • Engage them: Take them to parks, indulge in fun outdoor and physical activities. When your child refuses to eat or do a particular work, never bribe them with a mobile phone or a laptop. Instead, promise them a weekend picnic or a day out.

  • Reduce internet time: Make sure children below 8 years have either no access or reduced access to the Internet. In fact, children below 10 years should not be allowed to use mobile phones, but that is practically not possible in today’s time, so parents should make an effort to control that and make sure that their children are not spending unnecessary time on internet as not only it is wasting their precious time, but also affects their mental health too.

Lastly, do not let your child forget that there is more to life than video games and TV. Love them but don’t give in to your child’s unrealistic demands.

Infants may empty their bowel along with every feed or infrequently upto once in 5 days. Contact your doctor if the baby is uncomfortable or stains or passes hard stool or if it has been 48 hrs more than his normal frequency.

What should I do for weight gain of my 11 months old baby girl. She is 8 kilos now.

Vaidya Visharad
Sexologist, Narnaul
Dear,People who are underweight and do not have fat deposits on their body may not be getting enough calories to fuel their body. This could have a direct impact on all of their organs and may eventually lead to a variety of health problems.There are ways to get into the shape we desire and to gain weight fast. This would require understanding the reason for low weight and maintaining a diet for weight gain. In weight loss, the simple formula is to burn more calories than you consume, but to gain weight you have to also find out if there is something in your body that is preventing you from getting to the weight that you desire.

Yes I try to give her solid food. But she spits it out. I can't give a big mouth rice. 4 to 6 grains of rice that's all she chew. More quantities if I give her she spit it out. She doesn't want to eat bread, cheeses curd and many more things if I give her. Even banana I have to fed her. If I ask her to hold the banana she will. Never do that. What should i do for her?

Have some patience. Try one by one. Give some freedom and choice to the baby. More than that cuddle her, play often. Feed small quantities frequently.

Piles has no relation with the current problem. Children tend to suffer from stomach ache in the initial months of life. However if there are no other symptoms, child is taking orally well and there is weight gain, nothing to worry about. Otherwise consult a pediatrician. Warm Regards.

Newborn Hearing Screening

speech therapy
Audiologist, Ahmednagar

 In developed countries like US it is mandatory to check hearing of each and every newborn within 48 hours of birth. But currently there are no mandatory rules or regulations for Newborn Hearing Screening in India and hence the identification of hearing loss is mostly at later ages.

Conclusion:

  • OAE screening is proved to be reliable method of screening. If hearing screening is made mandatory for the newborns at the time of birth or within the first month of life many more cases of hearing & speech impairment could be avoided.
  • Hearing impairment must be corrected before the child reaches six months of age. Late intervention of the hearing loss will yield very poor results as the plasticity of the brain reduces drastically as the child grows older. Undetected hearing loss is big obstacle to educational achievement and socialization.
  • Mother’s instinct should never be ignored and probable hearing loss in the child should be subjected to audio logical assessment.  It should not be ignored with “It shall improve in the next few years” or ‘child did not hear because he was busy playing or watching television’.

There are certain drugs which may react to some individual producing some side/ toxic effect which can be known after use. Pls note the medicine which reacted and told doctor whenever you visit. It shall be in interest of baby to know the name of medicine which reacted before advising medicine. To develop immunity, give him protein rich nutritious diet and vit a 60.000 units daily for a week. For running nose, instill saline nasal drops in each nostril 3 times in a day.

Small vsd indeed gets closed with time. To confirm that its closed you have to get 2d echo done. Although clinically also it can be confirmed by your doctor.
