My male baby 20 months old is having Craniosynostosis, having small head size. His overall activities are normal so far, he is not talking yet but only saying Mama, Papa, Didi, he walks/ runs normally. Please let me know if I have to take any extra precautions in order to make his future life to safer side.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Follow up with Paediatric neuro physician to know if intervention is needed. Probably you may not need anything as so far growth and development is normal. It (small size head) sometimes occurs in families with normal development.

Masturbating is quiet normal for your age. Your lean and thin ness is not because of this. You have balanced diet to improve your weight.

I understood that your son developed swelling on face and penis after one month of passing blood in urine that is now for 3 months and nothing abnormal was detected on investigation at that time and now he is free from blood in urine. There must be some reason for blood in urine. Any way, Pls get done his urine R/E, CBC and Serum Protein analysis and inform.

My baby daughter (1 years 10 months old) doesn't eat and drink anything except milk. A few months earlier she used to eat rice, vegetables, fish, egg, fruits but suddenly stopped eating.

Do not force her eat something. At this age kid have something called temper tantrums. By this she will try to assert her will and personality. Let her be. Just make sure she does not have anything else like biscuits, wafers, kurkure etc in between. That can be a reason she does not feel hungry and finds home food less tasty than the bisciuts and wafers.

Drink plenty of liquids to avoid dehydration. Use cotton clothes. Avoid wandering in bright sunlight to avoid sun stroke. Use clean potable water. Avoid eating in unhygienic places outside home. Give all vaccines appropriate for age. Have healthy diet together and play with the child.

My daughter has birth mark on face. That birth mark can be remove by any medical treatment ? She is now 1 years old. Suggest me.

DMB
Pediatrician, Chennai
Dear you have not specified the size or location on the face of the birthmark. If it is reddish, it is usually a vascular malformation called salmon patches (naevus simplex), port wine stains and strawberry naevus. Salmon patches are present at birth, are falt and 50% disappear by the time the child is a year old. Portwine stains are more extensive and get purple and can worsen. They are treated by laser and cosmetic camouflage. Strawberry nevus are soft and raised and appear at 5 to 6 weeks of life. They resolve by three years. Beta blockers like propranalol have shown to be successful in strawberry naevi.

Doctor my son 6 months old kindly advise me what are the foods I provide to him.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician,
Frequency: after 6 months you need to start weaning foods apart from breastfeeding. For next one month: 1-2 times other foods (rest breast or formula feeding) from 7th month: 2-3 times other foods, increase to 4 from 8th month and 5 from 9th month. After that 6 times food, plus breastfeeding. As you can see you shouldnot stop breastfeeding, taper it down slowly. After one year day time food plus night breastfeeding. Type 1. You can start weaning foods like rice gruel or kheer or boiled apple and boiled vegetables or cerelac, etc. Initially for one month give only once or twice a day. Rest should be breastfeeding and formula. 3. Exact quantity varies from baby to baby. Don't force feed every time. The moment he refuses to feed wait and try again after an hour or so. 4. Feed in calm and dark place to avoid distractions. 5. After 7 months gradually add home available foods (low salt low spice) like idli, kitchdi, dhal rice, etc in soft form (mashed with hands) 6. Add oil or ghee to each food item. 7. Avoid cows milk till 1 year. Consistency almost liquid like till 7 months, semisolids from 8 months soft solids from 10 months egg yellow from 8 months, white from 1 year fruits and vegetables all types in plenty (atleast two servings each per day) all vegetables can be boiled and given. Apple can be boiled while other fruits like banana papaya orange etc can be given without boiling. Regards.

Thinking of whitening your teeth? Start by speaking with your dentist. He or she can tell you whether whitening procedures would be effective for you.

If you have diabetes, you have a greater risk of developing certain oral health problems than people who don?t have diabetes. Controlling blood glucose (blood sugar) levels can reduce the risk of these effects.

A veneer placed over a tooth surface can greatly improve a tooth that is stained, badly shaped, crooked, or injured.

A balanced diet, limited number of snacks, brushing and flossing each day, and regular dental checkups are the keys to a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.

If you are nervous about going to the dentist, tell your dentist and the dental staff. They may be able to adapt the treatment to your needs.

What's the nutrition food for 6th months baby.

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), DNB (Pediatrics)
Pediatrician,
What's the nutrition food for 6th months baby.
Hi welcome to lybrate by 6mnths you can start weaning foods. Keep continuing breastfeeding, start off with ragi based foods, these are readily available in market or can be prepared at home. Introduce one food at a time. Watch for any vomiting, loose stools or abdominal pain following introduction of new food. Start with 2-3 scoops a time and then increase the quantity. New food can be given 3 times a day. Do not force feed, continue or stop feeding based on child's cues. Do not stop breastfeeding, keep continuing it till 1- 1/2 yrs of age. Don't breastfeed at the time or just before that of scheduled feed. Give adequate water along with feeds. Wait for a week or so before starting new food. Vegetable soups, mashed fruits, rice, dal, sooji based food can be introduced gradually. By one year child should be eating what the family members are eating without any modification. Introducing to ice creams, chocolates, junk food etc as late as possible is better. Avoid artificially colored foods. Avoid food prepared outside as much as possible. Cow's milk to be started after one year of age. Let me know if you need more information.

If my child has a fever, can I give them paracetamol and ibuprofen at the same time?

DNB (Pediatrics), Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician, Bangalore
You can, but I suggest give paracetamol 1st, then if it doesn't subside in a hours time, give ibuprofe. Make sure you are not over dosing your child.
