It’s a common concern to watch young kids eat mud, chalks, plaster from wall, sand and other such dirt or rather ‘inedible items’. 1. Keep you home spic and span and free of dust and dirt. 2. Keep all sand, dust, clay and soil related items at a greter height. 3. Also teach your kids to wash their hands and mouth after playing with the dirt 4. Give a balanced diet to your child with increased proportion of calcium, iron and zinc. These can be obtained from meat (esp. Read meat), liver, eggs, seafood, grains, cereals, and legumes and dairy products. Consult your pediatrician, who may prescribe supplements.

My 6 years old son is suffering from stomach pain for last 1 year. The pain occurs once or twice every day for 2 - 5 minutes and automatically get cured. We have done all types of blood testing, mantu test, usg of whole abdomen, x ray but every reports are normal. Doctors prescribe only anti allergy medicines but of no help. Please suggest what to do.

Hello thanks for the query I would like to know if there is any headache or visual disturbances associated with abdominal pain. If all the investigations are normal and the pain abdomen is not hampering the daily activity, there is no loss of appetite, no weight loss, not disturbing night sleep, not associated with vomiting or loose stool I won't get overly worried. There is a condition called recurrent pain abdomen which is a common cause in this age group and does not need any specific management. It improves as the child grows. Give antispasmodic for symptomatic relief.

You can cold sponge the forehead to lower temperature. Try to give small sips of ors (lacolytez) properly reconstituted every time baby vomits to prevent dehydration. Soft diet in small amounts. Antipyretic to decrease temp. Anti emetic to decrease vomiting.

This is case of developmental delay. Also the size of head is small ie microhead (micro cephaly is present. The condition of the child needs to be evaluated right from birth history as any perinatal insult ie insult to babies brain during birth may lead to these changes. The parents must be giving the child physiotherapy for development. You can go for MRI to find the cause of neurodevelopment delay but it will not have any effect on the treatment as a whole.

Symptoms and Treatments for Adenoids

Here are some tips and treatments for adenoids

Hi I’m Dr. Vijay Verma. I practice at Three senses ENT Allergy and Dental Clinic. We all know that kids are always suffering from continuous sneezing. There is an obstruction and also discharge and sometimes bleeding from the nose. They have breathing difficulties and I know that in every family kids are suffering from these problems because they are going into daycare and suppose that there are 20 kids and one out of them always has cold. Your kid is always prone but in depth, we ignore these symptoms of ‘Adenoids’.

Adenoids are nothing but just like tonsils but are present behind your nose. When they get enlarged they tend to cause nasal obstruction to the child. This infection always gives rise to continuous nasal irritation. Children tend to sneeze which causes nasal discharge. When these adenoids fall back inside your throat it causes sore throat and causes continuous cough for the child plus when they sleep, they are unable to take proper amounts of oxygen and if that is happening, they cannot grow properly

.And this one thing is always missed, so one should consult an ENT specialist for these problems of Adenoids because after 12 years although they regress in size, the changes which they lead to are permanent. They can protrude the tooth out, so sooner or later you will need to visit your dentist; a lifelong problem. There is also a possible accumulation behind the ear drum so the kid starts to have various problems with listening. All these are associated to Adenoids, so they start in childhood but leave permanent changes. So I would suggest you to visit your doctor as soon as possible if you notice that your child is having continuous sneezing, nasal discharge or sore throat.

For adenoids, there are two types of treatment:

(a) The therapy of Spray or

(b) Surgery, so it depends on the size of the adenoids.

Depending on that, it is medically treated or surgically treated. Usually all of us are scared of surgeries but now the tools have become very safe. It is either done with a microdebrider or a coblator which makes it a bloodless surgery and also one which is not a painful surgery; it would lead to your kids being happy.

I would also advise you to visit me via Lybrate.

Benefits of Breastfeeding for Baby & Mother

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics, CRT in Autism

Benefits of Breastfeeding for Baby & Mother

Breastfeeding is best for the baby and its benefits extend well beyond the paradigm of basic nutrition. Breast milk contains all the vital vitamins and nutrients, which a baby needs in the first six months of life. It is fully loaded with disease fighting substances, which protect baby from illness. Many international paediatric organisation recommend exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months and recent research reports have proven that breastfeeding is good for both mother and the baby.

Breastfeeding protects the baby from a long list of illnesses, such as ear infections, lower respiratory illnesses, stomach disorder and meningitis and are less severe when they do happen. Breast milk adapts as the baby grows to meet the changing needs. Breastfeeding builds a strong emotional bond between the mother and the baby and it has long term benefits lasting right into adulthood.

The first milk of the mother contains high concentrations of secretory immunoglobulin A (IgA), which guards against invading germs by forming a protective layer on the mucous membranes in baby's intestines, nose, and throat. Mother's body responds to pathogens (virus and bacteria) that are in her body and makes secretory IgA, which is specific to those pathogens, creating protection for the baby based on to whatever mother is exposed. 

The antibodies in breast milk gives a baby's immune system a boost and also helps children avoid type 1 and type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and inflammatory bowel disease that strike later in life. Babies who were not breastfed run the risk of developing Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

Breastfeeding boosts child's intelligence. Surveys have shown that premature infants with extremely low birth weight who receive breast milk shortly after birth improved their scores of mental development at eighteen months when compared with premature infants who weren't given breast milk. The emotional bonding happening during breastfeeding contributes to some of the brainpower benefits. Breastfeeding lowers the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). It reduces a child's risk of becoming obese as a teen or adult as the breast milk contains less insulin, which stimulates creation of fat. The high content of leptin in the milk regulates appetite and fat.

Breastfeeding triggers the release of the hormone oxytocin that promotes relaxation and nurturing. Oxytocin released while nursing also helps your uterus contract after birth, resulting in less postpartum bleeding. It reduces stress level and the risk of postpartum depression. Research studies show that breastfeeding results in changes in breast tissue and lactation reduces the production of oestrogen, which reduces the risk of breast and ovarian cancer. It also reduces the risk of osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.

History and results suggest some kind of acute chest infection. Recurrent infections are common as same chest infection can be caused by different viruses. As children lack immunity, they have infections more commonly than adults till the immune system is ready. If the previous infection cleared completely before the second infection, it is most likely a viral infection. It is better to consult a pediatrician to listen to chest.

Heavy school bags for long time can cause posture problems and other problems. You can distribute the books for handbag. You can buy two sets of some heavy books for school and another at home.

it is possible for infants to wear glasses using head bands.. in fact glasses will be important so that complete visual developement and teaming between 2 eyes can take place. It was good you were able to detect and surgically treat cataract in time.. but u still need to continue with treatment to ensure the best visual outcomes for your baby. your treating doctor will advice u on what power of glasses are to be used and how they should be maintained. just be sure to follow those instructions.

You are not supposed to do anything for that except rest but consult your doctor and he or she will rule out the cause for the iugr if present and will prescribe accordingly. Do you have any other disease like thyroid problems, high blood pressure. Or it can be just a low birth weight baby.
