Gas forms in every individual so in kids too. Don't give any medicine for normal happenings in life. Since gas formation is no disease so no medicine and its dose.

Usually it is advised to give breastfeeding minimum for 2 years. If it is given beyond that better to give only at night. Also when the baby is feeling hungry try to give solid food first and then give something to drink. She should at least eat One Katori food 4 times daily and 2 times snacks light diet. Also if she is not taking milk then you can give her Milk products like Dahi that is called curd then buttermilk paneer and all other products that are made from milk. While giving food to the baby it is important that you stay by the side of the baby and give the baby food very slowly. Be patient that the baby completes her food as slow as it takes. Never ever be angry on the child as this spread negativity and the baby will dislike the food even more there are no magic medicines without side effects which will lead to weight gain so at the end it is mainly up to the parents to give food to the baby also you can give the food divided in small quantity and make sure that the baby completes her share. Never force her to eat. Give variety of food. Involve her in small kitchen activities. This also makes the child more active in participation and at the end of work will also enjoy the food that you have prepared along with her. Participation in food making helps her to like what has been made and at the end of work will also enjoy the food that has been prepared. Last give more and more variety. If she dislikes one particular recipe you can again repeat it after one week.

My kid is 2 years old now and he is not able to speak, what is correct age to speak.

MASLP
Speech Therapist, Hyderabad
Around 1 year age children generally speak few simple words. Communication delays must be addressed at early ages for better results. Speech pathologist can guide you reg. Intensive speech language stimulation. Any neuro motor problems must be ruled out. Seek professional help if there is absolutely no speech development yet.

How Homeopathy Can Help Children?

How Homeopathy Can Help Children?

Parents today are more concerned about their child's healthy diet and hygiene compared to earlier days. They are more inclined towards quality when it comes to providing medical assistance to their children. They are also now well aware of the side effects of conventional drugs and are keener towards trying alternative treatments which come with no side effects. Studies prove that conventional drugs suppress diseases and antibiotics hamper digestion. But homeopathy on the other hand, offers natural remedies, which are safe, and has a long-lasting effect by boosting your body's immunity.

Below are some of the conditions in which homeopathy works wonders with the kids:

1. Acute conditions such as cold, flu, sore throat, stomach infections. These conditions are self-limiting. Homeopathic remedies not only cure these acute problems, but also prevent their recurrence.

2. Chronic diseases like eczema and allergies are cured completely and never recur when treated with homeopathy. In both the above cases, homeopathy works miraculously. Alongside the healing process, it boosts the child's self-defense mechanisms to fight against diseases. While antibiotics may be too harsh for the child's body, homeopathy is a safer option since it does not have any side-effects.

Homeopathy is also effective in treating colic, ear ache and reduces pain and discomforts. Some of the common problems of children where homeopathy works well are fever, teething, vomiting, diarrhea, dysentery, kidney diseases, infant colic, jaundice, eczema, convulsions, ear infection, fungal infections, warts, thyroid problems, and growth related problems.

Not just physical symptoms, homeopathy also treats mental and emotional disturbances.

  • You can take help of homeopathy treatment if the child is cranky or restless, and it is very beneficial even in case of hyperactive children.
  • It is also effective in increasing concentration.
  • Homeopathy works perfectly for specially challenged children as well.
  • One of the plus points with homeopathic medicine is that it is easy to administer given their light doses and consumable taste.
  • In addition, injections are not required. Furthermore, homeopathic treatment helps in all stages of childhood.

Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine. It works on improving immunity rather than only curing the disease. Thus, it is very important to complete courses in homeopathy medication. Even though handy, homeopathy does not allow self-medication. It is always advisable to seek a doctor's help.

Son is 3 years old and has the habit of keeping his tongue out most of the time. Was advised to wait and it will go with time but it doesn't seem to be improving. He speaks a lot and I don't see a problem with his speech except inability to say 'r' sound.

This habit will automatically be resolved. One thing to watch for is to observe exactly in what circumstances or situation he keeps it out. If nothing like that, no worries.

That drug usually will not give rise to any serious side effects except for sedation. Stomach pain may not be related to that. You can give for worms and observe.
