Hi, My son is 3.5 years of age. He had 3 minor blood Dysentery in 2 months interval. Every time after a viral infection/fever. Stays for 0.5 to 1.5 days only and then with application of antibiotic goes away. My child specialist said it is normal. Is this really nothing to worry? We recently started fruit juice to him. Is it anything to do with Dysentery? Please advise.

Do not give him fruit juice from market. Either make it at home and give him quarter of a class at a time. Much better is to give him fruits to eat rather than juice. Start liv-52 drops. 1ml daily for 7 days and then 1ml twice daily for 1mnth.

Hi welcome to lybrate if the testes were normal till now and with no pain or discomfort, it can be a hydrocele, but can't be judged by just your one question and without seeing it. Please consult your pediatrician as early as possible.

13years and weight 70kg. You need to become his role model and help him in a strict diet control, exercises and yoga if possible. Diet wise cut down his high calorie diet intake for example highly fried food items, bakery items, packed food items, breads, chocolates, icecreams. Encourage him to increase salads, soups, fruits, buttermilk, sprouts, vegetable juices in his diet. Tell him to take small meals at small intervals. Do not remain hungry for long duration this will make him hungry and he will eat more. Drink lots of water. Take him for cycling, skipping, jogging, daily morning and evening walks and see you will definitely get results in losing weight and get back to me after a month.

Child is now addicted to breast sucking whether milk is not present. You have to be very careful. First try soup. Of cereals and curd prepared at home. Self feeding is essential part. Thirdly let him sit on chair with plate in front. No request, no pampering the child. It will gradually changed to semi solid food. No one in feel sorry even if doesn't eat food. Breast should be stopped in 5 days time by keeping food every three hourly six times a day.

Depends on genetic factors as well. So if he is doing good not falling ill it's fine. But still increase carb in diet like dates, kheer, sheera, yoghurt, modak, laddu, etc and protein like soya, rajma, sprouts, peanut butter, etc.

If she is allergic to milk she can be given milk product in other forms and see if there is any allergy like you can give curd or yoghurt and see . Constipation need to be tested and TSH is needed as hypothyroid can cause constipation

Every 2-3 hourly feeds are must for a newborn baby to avoid significant weight loss-->. Meet your pediatrician asap and ofcourse you have to do check weight of your baby every 3 days. Sometimes infection or jaundice are the common cause of lethargy.

Symptoms and Myths About Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and How to Spot Them in Children

Children generally tend to be fairly over active and have lesser attention spans. However, when this tends to get into their performance at school and in general with getting along with other children it may be a sign of ADD or attention deficit disorder. Let's look at some of the common symptoms of this disorder.

Symptoms of ADD

1. Problems in staying focused: One of the very basic symptom is that children will often be very inattentive even during classes and will be easily distracted by small things.

2. Problems in trying to remember things or difficulty in following instructions: Children with attention deficit disorder tend to have issues with remembering things and if given tasks, being unable to complete as they can't remember instructions properly.

3. Issues with organizing, planning and trying to finish tasks: Due to the lack of attention, kids have problems retaining information and cannot plan or finish tasks given to them on a daily basis.

4. Easily bored or loses interest: Even if a child with ADD starts with something they like, interest may wane off quickly. Thus it is difficult to make them stick to a specific work schedule which may require regular practice.

5. Lack of attention to details and making careless mistakes: This is another trait of children with attention deficit disorder. They may be able to complete a task, but it will be fraught with mistakes as they wouldn't have much attention to detail.

6. Has a tendency to not listen when someone is speaking to them: This is also very common and is usually tied to being easily distracted and thus will drift off or not listen to when someone is speaking to them.

Some Myths about ADD

a. All kids with ADD are hyperactive
b. They will eventually grow out of it
c. Medication is the only option to treat ADD
d. ADD is not really a disorder and kids need to be trained better

Most of these are half truths and the extent of the problems varies from child to child. Only proper counseling will be able to diagnose the extent of the problem and what needs to be done.

How to spot ADD in Children

ADD can be spotted in children aged below 7 years via certain symptoms. Apart from the ones mentioned above, children generally tend be abrasive towards others and can make embarrassing comments quite often. They also change tasks very quickly without completing any of them. Any distraction would force them to change their track. It is best to go to a child specialist to get your child checked out for possible symptoms.

It depends, if there is any ongoing stress, or any disorder creeping in like anxiety, depression. You can ascertain that by consulting a psychologist and discussing in detail. You sure not have adhd if there were no such difficulties in childhood. For time being you can start with meditation. Discuss your issues with psychologist for best management. Consult me for same. All the best.

Your baby needs only breastmilk till the age of 6 months. You should start with complementary feeding after the baby is six months old. I would need more info to comment on the sleeping trouble.

You can not expect analytical skills from a kid in k. G. Please don't stress, he is coming in top three in his class what else is required. Observe him or some more time, if there are complaints from school or anything significant is observed you can take him for iq test to a psychologist/psychiatrist other necessary tests can be done then. Just relax as parents, he is just growing support him motivate him.
