Small babies sleep more. You must wake her up for feeding by gently stroking. Once the stomach is full she will again go for sleep.

Tonsils are immune glands and are required for healthy growth.Just keep a check on size of tonsils by avoiding infections by garling and specific treatment and avoidprocessed food.Never get an tonsillectomy done till there are mechanical problems like difficult breathin, choking etc.

Age is 4 yr and 10 months, if I am correct. Most common cause is dust and enviormental allergen for itchy eyes. You can go for a vision test if itching persists even after avoiding allergens

It's due to nld block, we used to say naasoor in local language. It's because a nasolacrimal duct might be blocked or narrow or underdeveloped. You can consult eye specialist to learn how to do nld massage. Antibiotics eye drops will help temporarily. If problem persist, nld probing or syringing would be the final treatment after 12 months of age. Best wishes.

My son who is 12 years old feel very weak all the time. He feels tired and lose interest in studies.

Passing urine frequently tells you that he is getting good amount of milk. Passing stools soon after feeding is exaggerated gastrocolic reflex. It's normal as long as the consistency is semisolid and golden yellow in colour.

My baby is 4 months old. My baby is sleeping at night times. But he is waking up 4 to 5 times. So that I am not sleeping much. Due to that I am feeling sleepy in the afternoon. But my mother-in-law is saying that if you sleep you will get headache in future which cannot be cured. But I can't stop myself without sleeping. Is sleeping in the afternoon really causes any affects.

No what your MIL says is old and baseless belief. It is normal for babies to wake up in between and trouble their mothers. It is part of motherhood! You can take rest/sleep when you are tired in afternoon.

My son is 9 years old. But he is still in the habit of bed wetting daily. What should I do?

Bed wetting in small children not only required medicines but a proper management is also required from your side.In order to control bed wetting problem of your child you must have proper knowledge of the exact reason of this problem. Actually normally a normal human being can retain urine in his bladder even for hours even if bladder is full because our mind controls the opening of Bladder valve.But sometimes this control breaks due to some reasons in elderly like old age,Uterine prolapse or displacement in females,Diabetes to name a few.But in small school going children it is a common problem and in majority of cases in children while sleeping the contact between their mind and bladder is broken and this is the reason why children cant feel their bedwetting problem even after urinating and continue with their sleep.There are a number of factors which leads to this problem but the main being Worms ,Excessive cold,Weak nervous system due to which whenever bladder fill slightly with urine,it exerts pressure on the valvular opening and while sleeping their mind-bladder control is not working,slight pressure on valve make it open and urine passes out without knowledge of the child.In some children this can happen while they are awake also. So our main aim while treating is to 1.set up a control betweem Mind and bladder 2.Try to remove all the causative factors 3.Try to make pass the urine of the child before hand time to time during the day so that there is no urine left in bladder so that no pressure is exerted on U.bladder valve. 4.Start giving medicines which will set up a contact between Mind and Bladder valve. 5.To start Pelvic Floor Muscles Stregthening exercises called KEGELS EXERCISE in teenage children and Mature people as small children cant do these exercises. Homoeopathic treatment R-74 Drops ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops in 1 spoon fresh water 3 times daily ENUROSAN or BOOUME 42 ( BIOFORCE) Drink 1 spoon twice daily Before starting the above 2 medicines first give below given medicine for 5 days and start the above medicines from 6th day D-WORM ( ADVEN) Drink 1 spoon twice daily for 5 days.Finish the bottle. Repeat the above medicines for 3 months. Management by Parents during this course 1.Stop all fluids at night 2 hours before sleep like water,milk,and fluids of all kind including liquid vegetables. 2.For first 45 days set up an alarm in the middle of night 30 minutes before when you think that the probability of your child urinating during sleep at that particular time is high.Make this time adjustments in next few days and void urine of your child at that time to relieve Bladder valve from pressure.It is difficult but you have to do it for your child. 3.See that your child doesnot put on weight by letting him eat fatty food and cold drinks.

Apply cold compress after feeding. Use nipcare cream 3-4 times daily on the affected nipple. If it is a retracted nipple try feeding with a nipple shield.

Calcium and vitamin supplements are not a must. Only thing is by 7 months, you to wean him off exclusive breast feeding and start him on nutritious semi solid foods. Now you can give him semi solid home food and continue breast feeding to meet his growing body needs.

High Fever: When It Should Raise Alarm for Parents

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician
Ask Free Question
High fever is common in kids and a common worry for parents as well. If you are a parent, you need to know when the fever is serious, and when you should worry about it. Fever is a defence mechanism of the body. Body temperature rises if any foreign body (or antigen) attacks your body. As a defence, body temperature rises making it an unfavourable condition for the antigen. Fever means 100.4 degree Fahrenheit. Normally for kids, thermometer is placed under the armpit to record the temperature. You need to add an extra degree for accuracy. Paediatricians recommend treatment for fever if it's more than 101 degree F.

When to Call a Doctor

If the kid is less than 4 months old and has a fever of 100.4 degree F with other mentioned symptoms as highlighted, one must see the doctor as an emergency situation.
If a kid has 104 degree F fever, rush to the doctor. Such a high fever in children could lead to seizers.

You must call a doctor if the kid has a fever along with the following symptoms:

Looks very dizzy
Has a deteriorated immune system or even any other medical condition
Has a seizure
Has symptoms such as rashes, painful throat, annoyance, rigid neck or ear pain

Medication Side Effects:

At times, if you treat your children with some medication that does not suit them, it may lead to high fever. In case fever in a kid aged less than 2 years lasts for more than one day, it's time to see a doctor. And lastly, remember that normal body temperature is 98.6 degree F.
