My son was clapped by his dad on my sons back and thrown on chair after he cut his sisters hair. I recall my son crawling away and his dad running after him and clapping him on his back some more. Another occasion he put a whole pepper in his mouth because he was annoyed by his son. My son was diagnosed by PTSD. My son is petrified of seeing his dad and cries at the mention of seeing him. He talks of running away. As a result he pees and messes himself up. His dad wants to see him. His dad has admitted to having a anger problem. Do I force my son to go visit with him. I am concerned about his emotional wellbeing. What am I to do.

Hi! Your hubby's behavior is very rough and rude towards his son. One thing your hubby and you have to realize kids are naughty these days you need to change them affectionately and not through being very strict. Actually your hubby's behavior would affect your son mentally. It is advisable to keep Dad and son separately for some years until your son gets recovered from this incident completely. Because your son may turn to be a fearful guy in future either in society or college or in any situation because of his Dad's rude behavior. You can actually console your son, comfort him and change his mindset to a more social Behavior. You need to throw away the fear from his mind and make him more bold. You can make him participate in some extracurricular activities like sports etc to make him lead normal life. Try to be his friendly mother so that he succeeds in life. You need to make your son more friendly, frank and bold towards others. So let him be separate from his Dad for few years till he grows big enough to face situation. I do not know what is your son's age but I believe he is very young to handle his Dad's behavior. Take care of your son. Be friendly and make him a perfect guy in life to succeed. With regards, Psy. MSV.

I have 7 th month baby boy. He is having stools from yesterday and there is some blood in his stools. What is the reason for this and what happens if it comes like that?

I think by blood you mean that stool has got something red in it. I would advise you to first get the stool tested for blood at a pathology lab near you. Blood in an infant's stool could be because of intestinal infection if feed hygiene is improper. Another important cause would be a small mass of tissue called polyp inside the intestine. If stool test confirms the presence of blood, please see a paediatrician in person.

Hi, I have new born daughter borned on 01/01/2016. Since last 40 days she is not eating well (breast feeding). When ever her mom feed her she starts crying and refusing to eat. After several attempts she is eating but after crying. We checked with 2 pediatrician and both said she is fine as she is.

Parameter to assess adequate feed to baby is weight gain. If child is not taking feed for last 40 days, she either must have lost weight considerable or may not gaining wt. Now she is 3 month 7 days old and her expected wt must be about 5.5 kg. If she is around this wt, you need not to worry.Whatever feed she is suckling, that is sufficient for her. 2 pediatricians have already checked baby who found baby fine.

Hello Dr, Actually my query is regarding to my son. Who is 1 year old. He is having Gas problem. He do not eat anything because of his less number of teeth. But he takes cow milk. But as per my observation, when he takes milk this problem increases. Kindly suggest what we can do so that his gas problem can be solved easily and he can continue with his milk properly? One more thing, he use to drink with his bottle. Is there anything which can help us to avoid feeding with bottle. Please provide your valuable inputs. Thanks and Regards

MBBS MD DCH, Dch

First of all you should stop bottle feeding. Insist on home nade cereaks like dalia khichri suji ka halwa rice curd rice dal fruit vegetables etc The child should be motivated to take home made cereals. Milk or milk products can be given by spoon glass. I am sure with patience and perseverance the child can start eating cereals.

Hi my son is 3.7 years old. For the past 4 days he is saying that he have pain in his stomach. He will have that pain for 3-4 time a day. But he don't have any other problems. Everything is normal. What could be the reason for his ache?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
Hello thanks for the query, pain in abdomen is a very common complaint in this age. I would like to know if there is any disturbance in daily activity or bowel pattern associated with the pain. If not, then I would suggest you to give some antispasmodic like dicyclomine (coaid syrup) or drotaverine (drotin syrup) for symptomatic relief of pain. The pain is mostly due to transient colic which get relieved by the medication. If the symptom persists or condition worsens I would suggest you to consult a pediatrician for evaluation. I shall be glad to answer if you have any more doubt. Regards.

Your child seems to be suffering from allergic response. The best way to deal with allergies is to avoid the allergens. Any episode like the present one can be dealt with cetirizine. Warm regards.

Diaper Rash: 8 Questions Answered By Dermatologist

MD - Dermatology, MBBS

Diaper Rash: 8 Questions Answered By Dermatologist

Here are a few questions which every new mother wants to know when they see a diaper rash:

1. Should the baby's diet be changed during a diaper rash?
Certain food items such as fruit juices can lead to diarrhea in babies. This can lead to a diaper rash. When new food is introduced or antibiotics are given, then that might also affect the digestion of the baby.

2. Are teething and diaper rash related?
As per dermatologists, the two have nothing in common though they might occur at the same time.

3. Which ointment should be used for a diaper rash?
Ointments that contain zinc oxide can provide relief from diaper rash. A thick layer should be applied on the skin to keep away irritants as if all of it is rubbed off then it might cause pain.

4. Can cloth diapers be an alternative?
The fact is that there is no proof that a cloth diaper might be better than the other diaper in case of a rash. In case, disposable diapers are used, then care should be taken to change them frequently as rashes can occur due to a moist environment. If the baby is allergic to a particular brand, then changing the same could prove to be helpful. Diapers induced with fragrances and dyes can cause allergic reactions. Babies who are allergic to disposable diapers, can do better with cloth ones, though they should be changed frequently. The rule is one diaper per hour, so the needful should be done.

5. What type of wipes are best for the baby in case of a sore bottom?
In case of a diaper rash a mild, fragrance free wipe should be used. Wipes which are labeled as hypoallergenic or for sensitive skin should be used. If the baby poops then he or she must be cleaned with a cloth and water and later some mineral oil should be applied to the baby's bottom.

6. What should be done if nappy rash extends to the other parts?
In case there are red spots and patches outside the nappy area, then the baby might be suffering from infection. If this happens then consult your doctor.

7. What should be done to give relief to the baby?
The best thing to do is that the baby's bottom should get some air. Leave the baby without a diaper, as this gives his skin a break from the rubbing, and germs which might be present in wet places like a diaper. Application of the cream with zinc oxide, provides relief to a baby.

8. How long does the rash last?
Maximum 3 days.

I am having a baby boy six months 22 days old he is having a PDA size 3mm and having shrinkage in one of his bicuspid valve in heart. Is there possibility that PDA can be filled on its own. Kindly suggest what is required to be done.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
Dear , since your child is almost 7 months old, there is no chance that his pda will close spontaneously. Also, you have mentioned some defect in his bicuspid valve. If left untreated, both may have serious repurcussions. You must consult a paediatric cardiologist and proceed according to his advice. The treatment may involve surgery or a interventional cardiologist.

You may continue iron and cal as suggested by your doctor. But I suggest to add complementary food to baby in addition to breast milk as he is now 6 months old.
