Depression - 12 Signs that Your Child is Suffering from it

Depression - 12 Signs that Your Child is Suffering from it

The stress of a modern lifestyle have taken a toll on the mental health of the population all over the world. Earlier, it was adults who were mostly affected by the problems of depression, anxiety and stress. However, with the passage of time, even children are also suffering from major mental health problems, the roots of which again are anxiety, stress and depression.

Reasons behind it
Be it adults or children, the major cause of health issues is stress. Stress doesn’t only cause mental health problems, but serious physiological disorders as well such as hypertension, diabetes, heart diseases, sexual problems as well as other issues. If the anxiety or stress persists, it would then slowly develop into a pattern of the mind and then become conditioned, thus leading to depression. Nowadays, children are also being afflicted by depression. Similar to adults, depression in children is caused due to any combination of factors that are related to life events, physical health, family history, genetic vulnerability, environment and biochemical disturbance. It should be noted that depression is not just a passing phase. The symptoms are often left undiagnosed as well as untreated. This is because they are passed off as normal psychological and emotional changes that occur naturally during growth.

Some of the typical symptoms are:
1. Loss of interest in pleasurable activities such as hobbies or crafts which were pursued earlier eagerly
2. Loss of concentration
3. Sudden outbursts
4. Sleeping too much or sleeping too little, suddenly waking up early in the morning
5. Constant fatigue, decreased energy and being slower than usual at tasks
6. Excessively low appetite or increased appetite which would thus result in weight loss or binge eating resulting in weight gain
7. The development of physiological disorders which may stop responding to treatment. Many children develop headaches or digestion problems which aren’t resolved by medication.
8. Always sad or irritable or in a depressed mood
9. May find it difficult to sleep or concentrate on work and thus, studies and grades may suffer
10. Extreme and sudden mood changes accompanied by incessant crying
11. Suicidal thoughts
12. Loss of energy as well as lowered self esteem
With children, you have to be extra careful not to ill-diagnose the problems and if they persist for more than a few weeks, you should seek professional help. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

My 2 year old son frequent cough n cold. But is active.What are the signs to Chek allergies or asthma ?

MRCP (UK), DNB, MD
Pulmonologist, Mumbai
Dear, Need to get some details. Is he also having fever, loss of appetite or weight? Any family history of allergy like runny nose, eczema etc? Asthma is a genetic disease. And clinical examination and history are the best diagnostic tools. It can also be treated easily and help your son lead a normal childhood.

The changing colour of your baby maybe because of hereditary or some hormonal changes but most of times there is change in colour of baby because of maturation of skin and increase thickness of the skin if the child is otherwise normal don't worry.

Pediatrician,
What is good food for 9 month baby ?
At this age, the baby should b given 3 solid meals and 3-4 milk feeds, including at least 1 top feed. You can give her whatever is cooked at home, just make sure it is overcooked and mashed, e. G dal, daliya, bananas, potato, curds, half boiled egg, porridge etc (yes, cerelac too, if you want to, but not necessary!)

MRCPCH, MBBS
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
Take steam before sleep n you can use nasoclear drop to put in nose if blocked. Also try to keep some gap in last meal of day n sleep time to avoid possible reflux which might be bothering you. If still bother then see your doctor for the same.

Timely thinking indeed! the very purpose of top semisolid feeds started at this age is to support growth demands n to empower enable child to take routine home/family food at one year age any staple cereal mix with pulses/grams/nuts in 3: 1 proportion with added energy dense ghee/oil, jaggery/sugar cooked n made incrementally semisolid is acceptable. Prefered are custom made home cereal mixes. Acceptable but less favoured options of commercial cereal mix only in compelling situations like working mothers, travel, hygiene issues. Hardly anything to choose between variety of available flavours. Just ensure age limits recommendations. Mashed fruits, roots, veg to be started bit later. Avoid top milk, animal proteins upto 9 mths. Start with 4 feeds a day n increase gradually the volume, variety, thickness as per taste n acceptance of baby. Happy feeding.

Any normal baby will be accepting mothers milk or formula milk. If not accepting, investigations in a hospital will need to be done and under the care of a child specialist. Till then orally juice can be started.

9 months baby ka weight kitna hona chahiye

Pediatric Gastroenterology, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician,
A baby doubles his birth weight in 5 months and tries it by one year. For example. A 3 kg birth weight baby is about 6 kg in 5 months and 9 to 10 kg at one year. So at 9 months the baby should be about 7-8 kg.
