My grandson is 2 years and 4 months - good hight and fairly good active mode - only complaint is less intake - no voulentary intention to have food- every day compulsory feeding is must. What should be the strategy?

Dear , very good question to answer, all parents are asking such question. Answer is very simple weaning starts at the age of 5 months, if start i. e. Beginning is good and maintained then everything goes well otherwise once baby start walking then she runs ahead and mother runs after baby and then starts ferry that please take this and that, otherwise mother do feed continuously with other food then also baby do not accept then food. Hence take your baby in lap while taking your meal baby will accept whatever you are eating provided baby is not given any other food so take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Firstly let me warn you that your daughter is suffering from malnutrition and her weight is quite less according to her age. It’s alarming. Consult a Pediatrician immediately for thorough check up. Diet plan and medicines will then be started. But stay calm, as your daughter will be alright after appropriate treatment/ Stay Healthy, Stay Happy.

Is it normal for young children to stop taking or needing naps? My 3½-year-old hasn’t taken a nap in quite a while, but seems to do OK.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, On average, a 3-4yrs. of child needs 9-12hrs. of night sleep and 0-2hrs. of sleep during daytime (varies from child to child and few kids may not sleep during daytime). Normally, the child sleeps in daytime after doing more physical activity only when the child starts feeling tired and there is need of rest.

Instill saline nasal drops in each nostrils 3-4 times in a day. Clean eyes and use antibiotic eye drops every 2-3 hours in both eyes and eye ointment at bed time. Since baby is 1 month old and are prone to become serious in a short time, it is advisable to consult pediatrician.

Please stop bottle feed and milk all together. Give food, proper adult one else let her stay hungry. Sup pixit 5ml twice a day for five day and then 5ml once a day for one month. Pilex ointment three times a day for one month to be applied at anus and insert the nozzle inside the anus and press the tube. This will relieve her but proper food will cure her esp vegitables and fruits. Honey, munnaka, saunf can also be added to the diet.

Deficiency of Iron in Children

PALS, MD, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
Deficiency of Iron in Children

For the growth and development of children, they need an essential nutrient Iron. It helps in the transfer of oxygen from lungs to the body's tissues. Red blood cells contain iron in the hemoglobin. The hemoglobin carries oxygen in the blood to the different parts of the body. Iron has an important role to play in the development of brain and generating energy in a child's body. The lack of sufficient iron in the child's body can lead to anemia, which is a nutritional deficient illness and will require medical attention. When a child suffers from anemia, the lack of oxygen makes a child weak and sick.

There are certain symptoms of Iron deficiency in a child's body. These are:

  1. Infections and weak immune system can make a child suffer from frequent infections.
  2. Lethargy and fatigue is another common symptom of an iron deficient body. Due to deficiency of Iron it is difficult for the body to transport oxygen to cells in the body and hence it unable to generate enough energy levels.
  3. Breathlessness and increased sweating can be a sign that your child may be suffering from iron deficiency.
  4. Pica Children suffering from iron deficiency may find a special taste for non-food substances like chalk, dirt and clay.
  5. Lack of iron in the body hampers the physical growth of a child.

The deficiency of iron in children can be diagnosed through blood tests. Your doctor may recommend supplementing iron content orally or through multivitamin medicines. But the deficiency of Iron in a child's body should be taken care of with absolute urgency.

Proper steps should be taken to prevent the deficiency of Iron in children. Those notable precautions are mentioned below:

  1. Balanced diet: A well balanced diet is always recommended. For older children (within 9-12 years of age), red meat, chicken and fish would suffice as good sources of iron.
  2. Oral iron supplements: Oral iron supplements would be required for children with low weight at birth and who have a deficiency of iron in their daily diet.
  3. Vitamin C: Foods such as strawberries, tomatoes and potatoes help in providing the sufficient iron content when included in daily diets, thus reducing the chances of anemia.

This is normal in 2 month old infants and they pass motion with every feed and you must not give bottle feed but only breast milk. For gas, do burping well and Colic aid drops also can be given.

General Physician,
He needs to be gently and lovingly advised and do not shout and get angry with him which will make him rebel. If you cannot mange he should be shown to a child counsellor . But he is only 7 years and too young and hope that he will become normal as he grows up

Children's differ in their tastes and habits. Instead of milk you can give curdled milk before it turns sour. Add little curd to milk and keep for two hours and it will be just like porridge and you can feed.
