My 9 months baby don't sleep at ni8 time until midnight. And most oftenly used to get up for every 1 hour and start crying. He is teething as well. Our local pediatrician suggested HYDROXYZINE drops. I used for 2 days at night time continuously .After keeping drops baby started sleeping at least for 4-5 hours. Is it safe to continue? Please suggest.

Hello, Go to establish a bedtime routine. •Picking up your baby as soon as she starts crying.•.Putting your baby to bed with a bottle, conveying, mixed messages about where and when to sleep. •your baby might like the quality of motion-induced sleep, arrange it. •.As your child gets older, plan his extracurricular activities around regular bedtimes and nap times so he's more likely to get the sleep, he needs. •You need to assess any unhealthy condition with your baby - earache, colic, febrile condition, creating hurdle to sleep. Give her homoeopathic medicine:@ Cina 30.-1 drop with 1tsfl of your breastmilk. You need to remain fit  to keep your baby  healthy.

What Are the Affects of Galactosemia In Infants?

dnb pediatrics
Pediatrician,
What Are the Affects of Galactosemia In Infants?

An infant is usually called a bundle of joy and with good reason. There are simple and carefree, and bring a smile to your face with their antics. However, the mood and health of an infant can be tarnished due to an issue which is known as galactosemia.

What is Galactosemia?
When a baby has galactosemia, he or she will have a problem when it comes to digesting galactose, which is something that is present not only in milk but in all milk products. Galactose is a sort of sugar, just like fructose and glucose is. As a matter of fact, lactose, which is what milk has, is, in fact, a combination of glucose and galactose. Also, when lactose is processed, it is broken down by the human body into its constituents.

The condition is something that is passed down through the genes of the parents of the baby. The condition would occur if the gene which causes a tendency for a baby to have galactosemia is present not only in one parent but both of them. A baby who has the condition will be lacking an enzyme which is known as the GALT enzyme. The enzyme could also not be functioning as it should be under normal circumstances.

When it comes to the problem, it is very important, to say the least, to detect it sooner rather than later as if there is a build-up of unprocessed galactose which is allowed to occur, it can affect the baby adversely and in some cases, it can also be threatening to the life of the baby!


How does it affect a baby?
The problems which can erupt due to galactosemia include issues which affect organs such as the brain, eyes, liver and kidneys. It is interesting to take note of the fact that these are all organs which either have something to do either processing the blood or are heavily dependent on it. While a baby is not in the position in which he or she can communicate the issues that are being faced, when keeping an eye out for galactosemia, the signs which are displayed include an irritability of the baby as well as lacking consumption of the milk of the mother.

Even though galactosemia may not be the case, a doctor should be consulted as the exacerbated issue can include seizures and jaundice. It is to be kept in mind that galactose is something that can be found not only in the milk of the cow but also human milk as well as the milk of other animals such as goats. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pediatrician.

G6PD deficiency is an inherited condition in which the body doesn't have enough of the enzyme glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, or G6PD, which helps red blood cells (RBCs) function normally. This deficiency can cause hemolytic anemia, usually after exposure to certain medications, foods, or even infections. A normal—or no G6PDD—result for adults is 5.5 to 20.5 units/gram of hemoglobin. Less than 10% of normal means that you have severe deficiency and chronic hemolytic anemia.

Dear Sir, Greetings of the day. My son who is 5 years is given Cypon syrup. His intake has increased. Earlier we used to give him Neopeptine since last 4 -5 years. Now after someone suggested we give him Cypon syrup along with neopeptine. My question is whether it is safe to continue and is there any side effect in longterm how much time we should continue this. Is it ayurvedic/Allopathic? Kindly guide me. Thanks,

These meds do cause habit forming events. Prefer calorie dense diet rather then just making hunger stimulated.

Hello there, for cough, take 2-2 teaspoonful of pranacharya kasantak by mixing it in hot water twice daily. Sitopaladi, praval and tankan bhasm churna taken with honey can also bring relief. Consume this 3 to 4 times a day for relief from dry cough; you can also drink tea with basil leaves or add ginger and black pepper in it. Salted hot water gargling also helps. And stay away from cold drinks and don't take milk when having cough.

if it has been left ...u can start at any age . 1 year to 2 year of age then 2 doses 8 weeks apart. and if child.is above 2 years then single dose is sufficient. in my opinion u can choose single dose at 2 years ..which would save your money ..but remember there are many pneumococcal vaccine available from which always prefer PCV13.
