I am looking for the cost of recommended vaccination after the age of 5 years of a child. I am looking for injection cost for MMR2, Varicella 2 etc.

It is difficult to mention the cost of these vaccinations. It also depends who is the vaccine supplier in your town, and which pediatrician is procuring the vaccine from whom. At 5 years, you just have to give DPT booster which is also available at every government Hospital. So also MMR2. Varicella is available at the MRP approx 1600. (Varilix)

First Time Mothers - Things You Should Take Care Of!

First Time Mothers - Things You Should Take Care Of!

When you become a mother for the first time it is a completely new experience which may often leave you feeling exhausted and wondering whether all the things are being done right. First time motherhood is a beautiful as well as a harrowing experience at the same time. Although there are many important things to keep in mind, you can keep the responsibilities simple and streamlined in order to remember them.

Some of these are mentioned below

  1. Properly handling your baby – New mothers tend to be very careful anyway with their new born children. However, first time inexperience may cause harm to your baby inadvertently. Some of the things you need to be careful about while handling you baby are
    • Supporting and cradling the head and neck of your baby, especially while handling them is very important.
    • When you handle your baby, be careful enough to ensure that you don’t shake or jerk them too hard. Always be very mindful of the fragility of your baby’s body.
    • Keeping your hands clean every time before you handle your baby is extremely important.
    • Keep a hand sanitizer handy for this reason. Also, if you have to attend to your baby in the middle of house chores, such as kitchen work, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and wipe clean before handling your baby.
  2. Perfecting your breast feeding technique is very important – One of the more important things to consider is getting attuned to your lactation cycles; either storing the excess milk for later or ensuring your baby is fed properly according to your cycles as well as his or her demand. Some of the points that need to be kept in mind are

    • It is important to know how to improve and make the best out of your breast milk through improved breast feeding techniques. Thus, visit a lactation consultant who can easily formulate a plan for you and optimize your breast feeding techniques.
    • Although breast milk is very important, some minerals can only be supplied by specialized formulas. The best way to balance between breast milk and formulas and you lactation consultant along with your doctor should be able to give you some pointers.
    • Your breasts will become sore after repeated feeding or suction. It is important to perform warm compress and heat massages to ensure that they don’t hurt.
  3. Soothing your baby – The only way your baby can communicate with you is via sounds such as crying and babbling. Thus soothing and comforting the baby is something which you may already do instinctively, but you may have to fine tune your technique slightly. Some of the things to keep in mind would be –
    • Swaying or swaddling you baby in a way that mimics the coziness of your womb
    • The baby can be kept entertained with sound and lights
    • Keep your baby warm, but not too warm depending on the season. Striking the correct balance is very critical.
    • Try to make the cleaning and changing process enjoyable for your baby by integrating play and fun into it.
  4. Sleep for the mother and the baby – The priority at this point in time is to ensure your baby’s growth and health. Thus, live by the principle that you sleep when your baby sleeps. Ensure that you adjust your routine to get the best results to minimize feeling tired all the time. New mothers tend to lose a lot of sleep and thus have interrupted circadian rhythms that affect their body. It is very important to maintain your mental composure and also be able to focus on your baby better.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Baby passing motion after feeding is normal thing. Green coloured stool is normal too. Just see that baby gets strictly and exclusively breast feeding. Nothing other than adequate and liberal breast feeding. Ensure baby gets recommended vaccination and also monitor weight gain.

My new born baby is unable to take breast feeding. He is 17 days old. When he born oxyzen is not reached properly in his mind. So doctor take him in NICU for 15 days. The child come home from hospital. But he is unable to take mother breast feed. Please help me.

You have not mentioned birth wt. however, your appears premature born by about 8 weeks and could not breath just after birth necessiating him to keep in NICU. If mother's nipples are normal and baby is able to suck, go on keeping him on breast for some time and then give him breast expressed milk with spoon. If it does not work, consult pediatrician particularly for neurologial assessment too.

My son is having sweet allergy where has if he had any sweets, chocolates, or biscuits in 12hrs. he will get much cough. Thats why we are not giving any food that couse to cough. please tell me any suggestion to not coming of cough

MBBS
Pediatrician, Ernakulam
He is unlikely to have sweet alllergy,however too much of sweets,biscuits is not a great idea. Excess of junk would reduce appetite and results in poor uptake of home foods.Please concentrate on fruits and vegetables. To avoid cough,remove him from dusty environment,no exposure to smoke,paint,polluted areas. Please note that children who attend day care centres have a increased tendency to coughs and colds

How to control your aggressive children

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology, Positive Psychiatry and Mental Health
Psychologist, Palakkad
There are times when even the most docile children appear to have the aggressive tendencies of a professional wrestler. While a certain amount of pushing and shoving is to be expected from all children, especially when they are very young, there are a few for whom aggression becomes a way of coping with almost any situation.

These overly aggressive children are not bullies; they often get into fights with people who are stronger than they are. They face problems not because they are aggressive, but because they become aggressive at times that are inappropriate and in ways that are self-defeating. They routinely argue with teachers and wind up in far more than their share of schoolyard scraps.

In some cases, this pattern of easily triggered aggression appears to be rooted in the children’s developing nervous systems. They appear to be physiologically unable to control their impulses as much as other children their age. For others, it is often a matter of needing to learn and practice social skills.

Aggression is one of the first responses to frustration that a baby learns. Grabbing, biting, hitting, and pushing are especially common before children develop the verbal skills that allow them to talk in a sophisticated way about what they want and how they feel.

Coping with a Very Aggressive Child

It’s difficult for adults not to attribute malicious motives to children who consistently appear to be trying to drive their parents and teachers to distraction. Often it’s equally difficult for parents not to assume that children are behaving this way because of something the parents have done wrong or have forgotten to do right. Such casting of blame, however, is not only inaccurate but usually useless as well.

The first step in helping an overly aggressive child is to look for patterns in what triggers the assaults, especially if the child is a toddler or preschooler. The aggression may happen only at home or only in public places. It may occur mostly in the afternoon or when the child is frustrated. Also, most of these children go through a predictable sequence of behaviors before they lose control. It’s a bit like watching a car going through a normal acceleration and then suddenly kicking into overdrive.

Once you can determine the most common triggers and can spot the escalating behavior, the simplest thing is to remove the child from that environment before he loses control. Take him away from the sandbox or the playgroup for a minute or two until he regains his composure. As the child develops, he will become less frustrated and, therefore, less aggressive because he has a wider variety of ways to respond to a challenging situation.

It’s also very useful to provide these aggressive and distractible children with a lot of structure and routine in their daily lives since predictability helps children remain calm and in control. Tempting as it may be at the time, spanking these children for being aggressive often does more harm than good. It is simply modeling the very thing you don’t want children to do. It teaches them that big people hit when they’re angry or upset, and that is precisely the aggressive child’s problem.

For older children and adolescents, teaching new and more appropriate ways of getting what they want can be very helpful. These children often have not learned the skills that their classmates picked up years earlier. As with bullies, formal assertiveness training can be particularly helpful to overly aggressive children since they have difficulty distinguishing between assertiveness and aggression.

It’s also useful to help these children look at life from a slightly different perspective. Psychologists have found that both aggressive children and their parents tend to focus on what’s wrong with a situation rather than what’s right with it. That makes their respective problems all the more frustrating for each of them, since neither pays any attention to the children’s improvement when it occurs.

Concept is demand feeds. So if child is demanding. Despite of adequate feeds supply. Mom shall feed. However signs of adequate milk supply is. Initially heavy breast gets weightless after properly fed baby. And baby gets at least sound sleep of 2 hours approx. So if you have above signs just don't worry. Your baby is doing fine.
