Eating Disorder In Children - 8 Tips To Deal With It!

If your child develops an eating disorder, you might be unsure about how to solve the problem and how to act on it. Eating disorders occur when your child tends to either eat in excess, or eats too less. The behavior of your child is also subjected to change because of an eating disorder. It is likely for him to get withdrawn, rude, and touchy. This makes it difficult for you to deal with them at a time when communication is necessary. Here are some essential tips that you should follow in dealing with eating disorders in children:

  1. You should get advice about how to talk to your child. It will help you in realizing that your child is likely to be defensive as their eating disorder is a form of coping. Hence, it is normal for a child to be reluctant about letting go of it. If your child is undergoing treatment, the treatment team has a vital role to play. However, your constant love and support are also very important.
  2. It is important to talk to your child about the condition, even though he cannot accept that he is having a problem. Communication is an essential part of treatment, which you should never ignore. You should not blame or judge your child, and refer proper resources to him. You have to be prepared for a negative response from your child.
  3. You should educate yourself properly about your eating disorder. Abstain from talking to your child about his appearance, even in the form of a compliment. Use ways for boosting your child’s self-esteem and confidence.
  4. Abstain from referring to weight problems and diets followed by other people. You need to assure your child that you will be there for him, no matter what. You should talk to him about activities he should get involved in, in a positive tone and approach.
  5. Coping with the meal times of your child suffering from an eating disorder is very important as well. Consult your child’s treatment team to know about ways of arranging your meal times ideally.
  6. Take your child out for shopping and agree on having meals that are acceptable, from both your and his end.
  7. You should have an agreement with your whole family regarding meals, which will help to set the expectations of everybody. Agree on not talking about fat content, calorie content, or portion sizes during meals.
  8. You must abstain from consuming low calorie food items in front of them. Try to keep the meal time atmosphere positive and light hearted. Do not focus on others during meal times and teach your child to concentrate on his own meal.

I have 4 weeks old second baby. I feel milk is not sufficient as he demands for milk every hour and I feel my breasts are always soft and milk never over flows from breasts. If I give him formula on top of breastfeed he takes it. But I don’t want to use formula. How will I increase my milk supply. I am taking lactare since delivered but not of much use. During my first delivery there was no milk and my first child was completely on formula.

Hi Firstly please relax. Stress is a major factor in reducing milk supply. Remember all mammals produce enough milk for any number of babies they produce. It is good that you do not want to use supplements, and want to breast feed. Remember the following points: 1) Baby is only 4 weeks old. Both of you are learning. Enjoy the sensation of holding and talking to the baby. Feed him every 2 hours. He may suck a few times, and sleep, and again wake up, suck and sleep. Squeeze milk from your breast onto the baby's lips and let him learn to suck 2) Breast need to feel heavy for everyone and all the time. Massage the breasts and feed the baby. The more the baby sucks, and the more you relax, more milk will be produced. 3) Drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated. Garlic, oats, fenugreek are all said to increase milk flow. Include them in your diet. 4) Do not bother about people telling you milk might not be enough. Breast heaviness, and milk overflow does not happen to every woman. And baby crying does not mean hunger. It can mean wet nappies, need to burp, and simply need to be held. You can personal message me if you have further doubts. Take care. Enjoy motherhood.

Hello, 1st of all your baby is so young to eat himself/herself. So don't force for that. Feed your baby with love and enjoy that. Another thing is observe what food he refuses to eat, try to give some foods that baby likes, for example if you are giving some bland food, add little salt/ jeera powder/ lemon juice/ little ghee/curd. Make food tasty as we like.

Don't worry. Fungal infection or Ring worm. When occurs in groin, called as jock itch. Usually fungal infection is common in moist areas of body like skin folds. It's mostly circular or round in appearance. May be red or black in colour. Treatment depending on the type and severity. Avoid sharing clothes, towels and soap; sweating also increases it. As it has to be differentiated from eczema and infection, its a must to see and confirm the diagnosis for proper treatment. So, please send photos of the affected area by direct online consultation for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Delayed Speech Disorder: Causes You Need To Know

Delayed Speech Disorder: Causes You Need To Know

It might happen that you may not find your child, at twelve months to two years of age, at the same level as their peers in verbal communication. You think it's just a developmental problem they are facing and put off seeking professional advice; an intrinsically wrong step to take, because your child might be suffering from Speech Delay.

Delayed speech, or alalia, can be roughly defined as a delay in the development and use of the biological mechanisms that produce speech.

The symptoms of speech delay are roughly categorized into age related groups, generally beginning at the age of 12 months and continuing through the early adolescence, and they are:

  1. Age: 12 months
    • It is indeed a symptom if your child cannot point at objects or cannot manage gestures, such as waving good-bye.
    • Another symptom is that if your child does not prefer to communicate verbally as much as his/her peers.
  2. Age: 15-18 months
    • If your child is unable to pronounce familiar syllables or simply cannot call you even by this time, it's a worrying symptom.
    • You find your child unable to, or simply not reciprocating to 'no', 'hello', 'hi', 'bye'.
    • If your child is unable to extend his/her vocabulary up to 15 words by fifteen months, then it's a symptom.
  3. Age: 2-4 years
    • You find your child unable to spontaneously produce speech and words.
    • Another worrying symptom is if your child is lacking consonant sounds at the beginning and end of words while speaking.
    • If you still find your child unable to form simple sentences and words, then it is indeed a troubling symptom, confirming the disorder.

The causes for the speech delay disorder are:

  1. A primary cause can be physical disruption in parts of the mouth such lips or palate, which may be deformed.
  2. Another serious cause can be an oral-motor dysfunction which is the disruption in the creation of the specific area of the brain which deals with speech and communication.
  3. The disorder can also be attributed to impairment in the development of the child's intellectual, receptive and expressive abilities.
  4. There can also be psychological causes involving school environment and peer relationships which might lead to disruption of speech patterns and reluctance in speech expression and development.

Causes of ADHD
ADHD is generally caused by bad parenting, too much sugar consumption and even playing too many video games. ADHD is a brain-based disorder and brain images have shown that people suffering from ADHD to possess psychological differences in their brains.

There are studies which revealed that a child is four times likely to be diagnosed with ADHD if his/her relative suffers from the same brain disorder, thus, clearly pointing to the genetic factor of carrying ADHD. Exposure to dangerous chemicals such as toxins in food, carpeting and flooring, cleaning products, lawn products and several personal care products can also induce ADHD in a child. When these toxins disrupt the development of the brain, a disorder such as ADHD occurs.

Symptoms of ADHD
There are a number of symptoms of ADHD. There are mainly two categories of symptoms of ADHD. They are:

  7. They are prone to losing things essential for tasks and activities.
  8. They are easily distracted by unnecessary and trivial stimuli in their surroundings.
  9. They are forgetful of their daily activities.
