It is possible that your baby is allergic to some component of the soap or lotion you are using. Another possibility is seborrheic / atopic dermatitis. Pl consult your local pediatrician who will advise you after evaluating the problem.

All About Child Bedwetting

All About Child Bedwetting

Bedwetting, also known as Nocturnal Enuresis, can be referred to as the unintended and involuntary urination during sleep. Enuresis, being a medical term, stands for wetting, whether during the day in full clothing or at night in bed. For young children and infants, urination is certainly involuntary. It is worth note that children who wet their beds are not actually being disobedient or lazy.

Child Bedwetting can be classified into two types- Primary and Secondary

Primary Bedwetting

It has been continuing since the phase of early childhood without a halt; which means the child bed-wets every night.

Causes:

  1. The child is unable to hold urine over the length of the night.

  2. The child cannot wake up in case his or her bladder is almost full..

  3. The child has been taught poor toilet habits as he/she puts off urinating for hours during the day.

Secondary Bedwetting

Secondary bedwetting can be an indication of a repressed medical or emotional condition.

Causes:

  1. Infection of the urinary tract can cause irritation and pain along with a strong urge to urinate.

  2. People suffering from diabetes need to urinate frequently.

  3. Any injury or abnormality of the nervous system can take a toll on the neurological balance that fundamentally controls urination

  4. A peculiarity in the muscles or other organs that are involved in urination can be the reason behind bedwetting.

How to address the problem of bedwetting?

  1. Motivational Therapy: This involves parents motivating their children to reinforce their sense of self-control over bed-wetting.

  2. Moisture alarms that can detect wetness in the child’s trousers while sleeping and sound an alarm bell to wake the child up.

  3. Tricyclic anti-depressants that lower the amount of urine produced by the kidney.

Of course cold things shall be avoided. Allergic problems have simple tactics to follow. If your baby is not comfortable with few things. Try to avoid it. Have proper hand hygiene and hygiene of oral cavity to avoid frequent infection. Tonsils and throat of babies are usually reactive to cold things and beverages so these precautions are needed till 8-10 years of age approximately. Regards.

Pediatrician,
If he is putting on around 600 gms weight per month, your breast feeding is more than enough. It means he likes sucking.

It is normal for a 2 month baby not to pass motion for days and if he is feeding well and playful you can just relax Do not give formula and if you give it feed with spoon only and no bottle feed

Donot worry about her skin color. Just enjoy the motherhood currently. The color of babies change a lot. If she has dry skin then donot apply besan or any other powder while bathing.

Continue breastfeeding. It is helpful to enhance milk production. Both breast milk shall be sufficient for 7days old baby. Please don't give any top supplement of any kind. Keep your diet nutritious.
