Straining while passing urine is common in infants. In case you notice any other symptoms like abdominal pain, pus or blood stained urine, fever on and off, then get a complete urine analysis done to rule out urinary infections. Also give her plenty of water so that she urinates frequently.

My daughter aged 6 years suffering from epilepsy for four years since then after medical check up and test she is on valparine syrup without fail and she never had seizures after that as well. We were advised that the medicine will run for years. Should we continue with the same.

I don't know your past history of seizures but if you have given it regularly for 4 years and no seizure, I think you can slowly reduce the dose and stop it with constant watch for some time.

Yes if it is chew-able one, and for kids then it can be given to him but you would like to strongly recommend going for natural sources of calcium like milk, milk product, ragi, bananas and whole grains. That would be more helpful than any kind of supplements.

I gave breastfeed to my kid till 2 years but now I stop giving him. From last 3-4 days I felt pain in my left side of breast. I can't lie upside down on my bed while sleeping.

Though you have done the right thing in stopping breast feeding, for how long now, have you stopped it. Milk production subsides gradually, and it may be because of the collection, that they may be full, swollen and hurting. Please be sure there is no redness and you are not running fever. These are signs of a breast abscess. You may get an ultrasound of the breast to be more sure of the problem.

All these medicines are not required all the time. You can give only multivitamin and digestive drops for few days and you can stop. Other medicines like antispasmodic and antiemetic can be given whenever needed only.

My son is 3 months 20 days old. He has given 3dose of pentavalent vaccine on scheduled time. I missed his 1st dose of ipv before so He got 1st dose of IPV (0.1 ml subcutaneous) with 3rd dose of pentavalent vaccine. So when should I give 2nd dose of IPV? How many doses are needed?

If your baby has got even one dose of IPV, you are OK as long as you have given OPV with Pentavalent vaccine along with first two doses. You need not give additional IPV. The weight is fine. Follow the immunisation schedule as per your pediatrician/ hospital card.

Because his request are completed by non verbal actions. You have to make him speak by ignoring his activities. Leaving him in children of similar age group will be useful. Correct his words & pronunciations when needed. Never imitate childs voice & words for joy.

Remedy depends on type and size of holes. Some time it closes by passage of time but some time it requires surgery depending on type and symptoms. It is better to consult pediatric cardiologist also.

If she is active and has no other complaint like feeling week headache or poor in study than nothing to worry, active children generally don't gain much weight, still you want her to be fat feed her lot of rice kheer and potato and make her sit in front of tv whole day, she will gain lot of weight.

I can understand your worries constipation is a major problem in childhood if left unattended can cause serious consequences. Remember:- 1) passing motion in any position other then squatting is bad and causing small small ulceration or fissure which is commonest cause of constipation:- so avoid. Use potty chairs. 2) have plenty of raw fibres in diet and plenty of water 3) have fruits in natural form (not juices) 4) use stool softeners available in market for at least 3 days a week or till stool becomes soft. 5) constipation is vicious cycle you need to stop it somewhere.

If you have started powdered milk and avoiding your feed, stop powered milk and give exclusive breastfeeding. If potty is normal and baby taking feed normally with gaining wt approximately 30 gm per day, there is no cause of worry and do not give bonison or like.

This symptom if persistent for a long time will require treatment. In the meanwhile you try to observe her and try to find the cause and other factors which causes sleeplessness. In homoeopathy there are many good remedy which are helpful for such cases. As homoeopathic medicines are safer, you can opt for it.

No, chicken pox and mmr are not same. They are two different vaccines. There is however, no harm if you have given a second dose of chicken pox by mistake. You an take her after a gap of one month (compulsory between 2 vaccines) and give her the mmr vaccine. No harm done but don't miss the mmr vaccine.
