This is the age when temporary teeth fall off. And permanent teeth start appearing. You can give calcium rich foods and calcium syrups.

For Edward syndrome (Trisomy 18) and Patau syndrome (Trisomy 13) there is high risk. Hence you will have to do Amniocentesis to rule out the risk.

Is it healthwise safe for a less than one month old infant to travel through train for approx 24 hour long journey?

MBBS, MD

Is it healthwise safe for a less than one month old infant to travel through train for approx 24 hour long journey?
Ideally travelling for such long duration should be avoided as there are issues like feeding and privacy for feeding the baby is not available always. Also the baby may be exposed to unnecessary airborne infection during travel.

When Does My Child Need Speech Therapy?

B. Sc. Speech & Hearing

When Does My Child Need Speech Therapy?

When it comes to speech, every child has a different pace of learning. In the first year, they should be able to recognize and respond to their own names and simple directions like ‘come’, etc. By a child’s second birthday, he or she should be able to use a single word or two-word phrases and understand simple questions. If a child’s speech development seems atypical for his or her age, you may need to consult a speech therapist. Some of the things you should look out for are:

  1. Mispronouncing vowels: Many children have problems with pronunciation. Pronouncing ‘bath’ as ‘baf’ or ‘animal’ as ‘amal’ is normal. However, if they cannot pronounce vowels correctly, they may be having problems with articulation. For example, your child might say ‘coo’ instead of ‘cow’.
  2. Using only single words: Part of a speech therapist’s job is to teach a child to join words together to create phrases and sentences. If even after your child’s second birthday, they still prefer using single words instead of phrases, you should consult a speech therapist. For example, they may just say ‘water’ instead of ‘i want water’.
  3. Stuttering: Many children are shy and hesitant of speaking especially in front of strangers. However, stuttering is a more serious problem. This could be in the form of repeating syllables or prolonging words. For example, ‘s-s-s-s-s-stop’ or ‘mmmmmm me’. If this is not nipped in the bud, it could continue into the child’s adult life as well.
  4. Answering a question by repeating part of it: By the age of three years, a child should be able to understand and answer simple questions. If the child answers a question by repeating part of it, such as answering “do you want food” with “you want food”, it could be a sign of a bigger problem. This is known as echolalia and might be an early symptom of autism.
  5. Limited vocabulary: Each child’s vocabulary grows at a different rate but it is important to be able to notice an increase in the child’s vocabulary from month to month. If the child uses only a finite set of words and does not catch on to new words, you may need a speech therapist. They can help the child expand their vocabulary and become more receptive to new words.

Other factors you should watch out for include difficulty with pronouns, not being able to follow instructions and understand prepositions and confusion with gender. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Find out which food she like. Then cook that food with high oil, oats to increase caloric value. Self feeding is most important even she spoil the cloths, table.

Ideally child should entirely breast fed for the 1st 6 months. However if mothers milk is insufficient and cow's milk or formula feeds is started then. You can try small portion of ripe and mashed banana, chikoo, mango. Pears should be cooked and mashed.

Hi Doctor, My daughter is 22 months old. I have a question over her diet. As summers are at peak, my baby is not eating or drinking any thing, she only takes Lactogen- Stage 4, which is a cause of worry for me. She is becoming very weak now a days. As she is not eating properly, she is getting irritated and crying all the time. I request your help to get a solution for her healthy diet during summers. Thank You!

Milk based diet till 22 months is really not good. If you r bottle feeding stop it immediately. Give her regular diet as we eat but with lesser spices. U can give regular cows milk only twice a day in a glass. Bottle is habit forming and has many disadvantages. Particularly in summers give more water. Fluids. Juice. Along with balanced diet.
