We have 2 kids of ages 2.4 years (son) & 2 months (daughter) respectively. While my wife was pregnant, we had worked with our son to teach a fair positive impression about his upcoming sibling & he had also responded quite well. Since the pregnancy, I had taken primary responsibilities to take care of him with fair support & company from my parents, while my wife also tried to do as much as she could. Also, around the age of 1.6 yrs, we worked with him to get rid of the habit of breastfeed by educating him that he is now grown up & he should let his sibling to take that, which had also worked pretty well. After my wife has come back after delivery with our daughter, we found he likes his sister quite well & loves to play with her too. However, we also started noticing a few changes in his behavior as follows, which I would like to share to make sure we are not ignoring any major problem. 1) We heard him saying 4-5 times in past one month that feeding is for sister & not for him, after which he sadly lies down on the bed. 2) He is quite possessive about his grandfather & does not allow him to take his sister at all. Even when I try to spend time with her, he does not take it in the right spirit. 3) Now he is reluctant to sleep with us & prefers to sleep with the grandparents, however, if I sleep with him separately, while the mother sleeps with the daughter, apparently it works better for him. What we are afraid is if he continues to sleep with grandparents, he might feel himself deprived of the company of his parents during sleeping. 4) He looks a little less focused in his daily study (with me), although he has the ability to pick up things really fast. Considering all these aspects, do you think I should continue to sleep with my son separately while the mother sleeps with the daughter to make things peaceful? Please advise in terms of overall well being of the entire family.

I am very impressed by the way you have handled everything and he has sibling rivalry even without his conscious mind knowing it. The 2 month old daughter needs utmost support now and all you can do is spend as much time with him as possible and feed the newborn when his attention is away and you can allow him to sleep with ou while taking care to feed the baby properly and console him and make him involved in baby care like changing napkins etc.. You can talk in detail with me via the site

My son is 3 years and 6 months old. But he is not eating fruits and do not tell while potty. He do potty in standing pose. Should we scold/bat him? how to handle him. We are helpless.

Pediatrician, Pune
Make him sit in the potty daily at a fixed time, if he his not getting potty, sit along with him with some toys, scolding or beating him will further worsen the problem, be patient with the child, support and help him, dont be helpless youself.

Dear Lybrate user. Possible causes. A delay in Speech skills can happen for many reasons, including: Problems with a child’s tongue or the roof of his mouth, which makes it hard to form sounds and words Hearing loss. Kids who’ve had a lot of ear infections can have hearing problems. A learning disability A developmental disorder, such as cerebral palsy or autism spectrum disorder What you can do. If you think your child has a problem with his speech or language, let his doctor know right away. The doctor will need to test his hearing. She’ll probably also suggest that your child see a professional who can diagnose and treat these delays, called a speech-language pathologist or speech therapist. This specialist will study how your child expresses himself, including: What he understands What he can say Other ways he tries to get his thoughts across, such as gestures or nodding If your child does have a delay, he might need speech therapy. A therapist can work with him on how to pronounce words and sounds, and strengthen the muscles in his face and mouth. You can also work with your child on speech and language:

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?

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.

Suvarnaprashan - How This Ayurvedic Immunization Will Help Your Baby?

Suvarnaprashan - How This Ayurvedic Immunization Will Help Your Baby?

Ayurveda is a life science that ha: s been around for centuries. There are many treatments and medications in Ayurveda that improve the way of life. One such powerful method that increases the immunity in children is suvarnaprashan.

We live in a world where we are surrounded by chemicals be it in food, water or air. With the erratic changes in the climate and our lifestyle need a lot more care than before; giving Suvarnaprashan to your children is one way the parents can ensure that their children grow up to be smart, healthy and strong.

What is Suvarnaprashan?
Suvarnaprashan literally means gold bhasma and is one of the 16 rites of passage of human beings. This all-natural product has been used for over 1000 years and has proven to improve the health and mind of the child.

Suvarnaprashan is a mixture of gold ash, ghee, and honey and is fortified with herbal extracts like brahmi, vacha, shankhpushpi and others. Investing in the early stages of the child’s life is imperative. The early stages are where the body starts to grow and the mind is said to be most intelligent. Administering suvarnaprashan at this stage will make sure you reap the maximum benefits. Suvarnaprashan can be given to children up to the age of 16 years.

Let us take a look at the benefits of Suvarnaprashan:

  1. Boosts the Immune System: Till the age of 5, children are more susceptible to infections. Suvarnaprashan consists of herbs that can help in boosting the immunity system. It can protect children from fever, cold, and cough.
  2. Improves Memory: This method is very helpful in improving the brain health. It can increase the grasping power, improve attention and enhance the memory in children.
  3. Helps with Digestion: Suvarnaprashan improves the process of digestion and also increases the absorption of nutrients in the body. The loss of appetite and gastric discomfort are often faced by children. This method can treat both these issues.
  4. Skin Health: Skin is the perfect way of knowing the health of a person. This method removes the harmful toxins from the skin and performs a detoxification. This will improve the blood circulation and also improve the texture of the skin.
  5. Improves Hearing and Vision: This method when taken in the right amount and method, also benefits the eyesight and hearing.
  6. Mental Health: Temper and tantrums are often witnessed in children. Suvarnaprashan has a calming effect on the mind, that can help calm them down. Suvarnaprashan can also be suggested for children with learning disabilities and autism.


One thing to keep in mind is that Suvarnaprashan should be consumed on an empty stomach. It is best to consume food only 30 minutes after having it. This is one of the most effective ways of ensuring the good health of the child.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

You can continue breastfeeding, it is very, very rare for a mom to need to stop breastfeeding for any illness. There are only a few very serious illnesses that might require a mom stop breastfeeding for a period of time or permanently.

My kid is 6 years old. She is very stubborn. When I say not to do something she will deliberately do the same thing. How to handle this situation?

Some children have a rebel nature especially if pampered or neglected. Some develop such attitude with the arrival of a sibling. Better you take the opinion of a child psychologist.

She may have stomach infection due to which she is having fever and UTI like symptoms .Of course she need antibiotic and antiemetic which you are already giving .Get blood test done for worms as well as it is very common in school going children, which causes repeated stomach infection.
