Hello Kishor... Paracef is just an antipyretic.and not the cure for fever.. Better consult and take proper treatment. It is very dangerous to give self medication..

My 1.5 years old son wakes up at night crying so loud and grievously that something got hurt but when we take him to lap after some time he will ease off and sleep but every 1 to 2 hr he will be doing this. This pattern is observed from last 10 days please suggest what to do?

It seems to be case of night terrors inwhich child loses the control in night occasionally. Paediatrician will be able to guide you appropriately after a initial evaluation. You need no to worry. It is not something serious.

Hi, Good day to you doctor. My kid is about 4 years and 3 months. My kid is boy baby. He is very very active and I should say extra active in playing, speaking and in terms of thinking as well. He is taking food properly on time as well. But the problem is he is not at all putting up weight. His weight is around 14 kgs only. Pls do advice me whether I need to provide any tonic or powder to gain his weight. Thanks in advance Regards, Magesh. R.

It is a good thing that your boy is active and otherwise healthy. His weight may or may not be fine for his age. But most important thing is that he should regularly gain weight as per expected. This you can get in your vaccination card where you will find a growth chart.  you can plot his weight against her age at regular intervals like say 3 monthly and see whether he is gaining weight normally or not. Normally a kid of his age should gain approximately 2 kg per year.

Is carrying heavy school bags bad for a child's posture? Does it bring any other problems?

Pediatrician, Gurgaon
Heavy school bags for long time can cause posture problems and other problems. You can distribute the books for handbag. You can buy two sets of some heavy books for school and another at home.

Piles has no relation with the current problem. Children tend to suffer from stomach ache in the initial months of life. However if there are no other symptoms, child is taking orally well and there is weight gain, nothing to worry about. Otherwise consult a pediatrician. Warm Regards.

calories demand increases with activity of child,and 9months is cut of age for increased activity.It may be possible he is more satisfied in term of calories,with semisolid food.thus just give breast 8hourly and try to give more energetics food.keep watch on wait gain.

Her eyes need regular cleaning. Use clean cotton dipped in cooled boiled water. Clean both eyes with that cotton and water every few hours. Wash your hands after you clean. If the eyes are becoming red and swollen, she will need eye drops.
