MRCPCH
Pediatrician,
Need further information whether he started doing it recently or always has been like that. Does he have urine accidents in daytime too? make sure he drinks plenty of fluids in day time. No drinks 1 hour before bedtime. No tea/coffee/cocacola type drinks in evening. Treat constipation problem if it is there.

How To Deal With Picky Eaters (Children)?

How To Deal With Picky Eaters (Children)?

Is your child refusing to grab anything other than chicken nuggets? When your child’s nutrition is an aching subject to deal with in your household, remember you are not the only one. Many parents are actually worried about the fussiness of their children over food. But your child’s food preferences would also mature with age. Until then, you can consider trying out these following tips to avoid any kind of mealtime hassles.

  1. Respect your child's appetite or lack of one: Respect your child’s level of appetite and never force a meal, if your child is not hungry. Rather, serve small portions to give them an opportunity to ask for more, on their own.

  2. Stick to the routine: Maintain a routine and serve snacks and meals at about the same time every day. Also, keep a check on the number of times you serve those mid meal snacks and try to stick to that count.

  3. Be patient with new foods: Have patience with new food. Take time in introducing it to your child by talking about the food’s shape, color, aroma and texture, if not the taste.

  4. Make it fun: Try out innovative ways of garnishing your food so as to make the whole eating experience a fun and a thrilling one for your child.

  5. Recruit your child's help: At the grocery store, ask your child to help you select vegetables, fruits and other healthy foods. But keep off those foods which you would not want you child to eat.

  6. Set an example: Set an example by yourself by eating all kinds of nutritious and healthy foods, in order to set that perfect example for your child.

  7. Cut Distractions: Make sure to switch off from any sort of a distraction, such as the television or the washing machine and other electronic gadgets while feeding your child.

  8. Don't offer dessert as a reward: Do not reward your child with desserts at the end of the meal as this sends them an indication that the dessert is the best dish among all.

  9. Do not cook a separate meal: Do not cook a separate meal for your child after he/she has refused the original one as this might encourage picky eating even more.

Generally speaking it takes about 7-8 days to stop loose motions in children give her syp rinifol 2.5 ml twice a day for 5 days. Keep watch on signs like 1. Dehydration (decrease urine output i. E urination less than 6 times a day) 2. High fever 3. Blood in stools.

I need to know can I travel by air with my 7 month old baby. is it safe for the baby.?

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatrician, Delhi
Yes it is ok. If the baby has a cold and blocked nose, the ear pain may be severe. In that case, it is good to instill prophylactically one drop in each nostril of nasoclear saline nasal drops and continue feeding the baby during landing and takeoff.

Regular routine care of the baby. In summer keep the baby in a room where there is proper cross ventilation. Feed the baby whenever baby cries. Do not rap (cover) the baby totally. Do not keep the baby either too hot or too cold. Use the fan or ac /cooler according to the necessity. Give the baby bath everyday. Keep the baby surroundings hygienic. Control mosquitos and house flies.

My son is 7 years old, on back side of his left leg, there is a light white line from hip to foot. Please suggests reason and remedy for the same, is this due to some deficiency ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Not due to any deficiency. It can be birth mark, post inflammatory scar if he had any abrasion there or fungal infection which however will not be like a line as you said. If you can send a photo to me I han guide you better. It is safe to apply imidil ointment twice daily for few weeks and if ungal it will disappear. You can remain in touch with me privately as your personal doctor.

My child is 4 and half years old girl. She is very thin. How to increase her weight and height?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
We cannot increase height as it is genetic nature and for weight you have to tell her weight to assess her condition. ANyway you need to check her TSH to make sure she does not have hypothyroidism which is a reason for lack of weight gain

Normally the secretion of mouth come up in babies and need not be phlegm as you think . Phlegm comes in chest infection and is yellow in colour. YOu only need to wipe of the salival that form up in mouth as do in all babies

He appears to be a fussy eater. Most importantly you need to be patient with. Don't shout or scream while feeding him. Try to make her feeding time fun or playtime. After not giving any food for 3 hrs at least make him sit with the food he likes (solid foods not pastes or liquids) with spoon and katori or fork. Let him at least play with the food for some time. If he likes milk a lot then try to give solid like plain rice, oats. Chatu. With the pediasure you can have a deal with him. He will take 1 sip milk and 1 bite of something this way he will learn to chew threptin biscuits are good to taste and are rich in protein (casein) avoid giving him chips fast food makes small pieces of food and ask her to try just 1 bite. If he likes the taste she will have another. If he likes chicken. Give him chicken in different ways. Introduce him to egg. Boiled or omelette whatever he likes. Play with him till he feels tired. Playing running will improve digestion. Don't loose temper you can give him one egg a day cucumbers made into small pieces will help with problem of flatulence. Children have to deal with new food, new habits. So they act out. Do not get flustered if he criesmakes a scene. Sit quietly, go to another room, ignore him. He will learn that bad behaviour will not allow him to get her own way. I know it's very difficult but keep trying as that's the best you can give him. Pain abdomen may be due indigestion earmarked, gastritis. Good hand hygiene: regular nail trimming washing hand after each toilet visit. And before taking any food in any form also take care of drinking water quality. Test adviced: cbc with aec stool and urine r/e, m/e usg abdomen share the reports if any.
