I am breastfeeding my 2 and a half month baby. He was born preterm, at 32 weeks. Does it cure him, if I eat ajwain when he gets cough & cold, and does he get cured if I eat heeng if he would be having gas problem or stomach ache. Is it ok for me/my health, if I eat ajwain and heeng daily.

Weight is normal for the age. Usually children don't eat properly during 2nd year. Give for worms and give all foods you eat.

Dear lybrate user, immediately conduct a liver function test of your blood. Revert back with the results. In the meantime you can take homoeopathic colchicum 30, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach.

My son 8 yrs old he had refusing school and refuse to learning and dis obdientence.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
He is only 8 years and you are the parent: is there any choice he has, or was he given this option about attending school? just lead him by his ear to school and whether he likes it or not, he must be made to go. Now if he not a communicative child, then perhaps he has a problem at school that he may find difficult to discuss with you. Talk to his teacher and find out if there is something at school that is troubling him. If he has friends, talk to them too. If he does not have friends, that could be troubling in itself about the nature of the child. You may then want to check whether he has social problems for various reasons and meet with a child counselor, if the school has not got one. Learning has to be made interesting especially if he is an over-intelligent child. The disobedience will be an attempt to wrest back the control he may have lost when he was younger, or he may have lost his importance, if another child was born recently. The counselor will be able to help with all of these possibilities.

My son is 6 year old, a continuously bed wetting (one or two) by day one. What is the reason, how it goes away.

Most of the times bed wetting is inorganic. The approach in this case will be to look for organic causes which are those that needs treatment with medication or surgery. These are usually not needed. If the condition is inorganic, behaviour therapy could be instituted.

If she had been dry for 2-3 years after age of 3 years, take it easy and don't make her conscious or scold her. Get her urinated before retiring at about 10 O' clock. Otherwise get her properly checked.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, I would say that I am not much concern about the loose stool and vomitings (milk) much. But having said that the baby is 6 months old, I would rather ask you to start weaning him. Some other food should also be started apart from milk.

Parenting Tip on behavioral management of kids
Children have never been good at listening to their elders but they have never failed to imitate them. Best way to effectively teach children something is by being a role model to your kid. Kids want to know there is a shared journey. Elders shouldn’t do the same stuff they deny.

Honey & lemon in water wil not affect breastfeeding in any way. Breastfeeding itself will help you to loose weight. Increase your physical activity like brisk walking for 1 hour.

Insist for home made food 3 times a day. Explain her importance of food in simple words with examples. Do not accept any undue demands for junk food. Formula food like pediasure will not help her. Having meals together is a good idea.

Worm infestation is related to hygiene. The whole family needs deworming. He should do nail biting or finger sucking. Describe the worms- small or long?

Diarrhea - How to Treat it in Children?

Pediatrician, Pune
Diarrhea - How to Treat it in Children?

Diarrhea occurs when the body is expelling germs out of it. An episode of diarrhea can last anywhere from a couple of days to a week. Dehydration, cramps, vomiting, nausea and fever often accompany diarrhea. Usually, children tend to get diarrhoea more than adults.

Diarrhea treatment according to causes behind it

  1. Treating diarrhea due to infection: Some common causes of diarrhea include infection from rotavirus, salmonella (a type of bacteria) and rarely giardia (a type of parasite). In children, virus is a common cause of diarrhea. Besides watery or loose stools, viral gastroenteritis infection symptoms include fever, headache, stomach ache and vomiting. Gastroenteritis diarrhoea can last for 5-14 days. During this time, fluid loss must be prevented. In younger children, oral rehydration solution (ORS) or breast milk is enough. Just feeding them water won’t replenish the potassium, sodium and other nutrients they lose. Older children, to prevent fluid loss, can be given ORS and popsicles to counter dehydration and vomiting.
  2. Treating diarrhea due to medications: Antibiotics or laxatives can cause diarrhea in children. If the diarrhea is mild, make sure your child is hydrated. If the antibiotics are causing diarrhoea, you need to continue medication, but do consult your doctor immediately.
  3. Treating diarrhea due to food poisoning: When it comes to food poisoning induced diarrhea, the same method as countering infection-induced diarrhea should be followed. Keep your child hydrated and call your doctor.

Diarrhea and children - recognising dehydration

The most serious complication of diarrhea is dehydration, especially if the diarrhea is severe. Severe dehydration is critical as it can cause brain damage, seizure, even death. Your child may need immediate medical attention, if you notice the following symptoms:

  1. Light-headedness and dizziness
  2. Sticky, dark mouth
  3. Dark yellow urine
  4. No or few tears when crying
  5. Dry, cool skin
  6. Loss of energy

When should you visit a doctor

Diarrhea resolves within a few days, but it can have serious complications. Call your doctor if you notice signs such as:
1. Looks very sick
2. Diarrhea has persisted for more than 3 days
3. Your child is less than 6 months old
4. Your child is vomiting bloody yellow or green fluid
5. Seems dehydrated
6. The fever reads above 105 degree Fahrenheit
7. Bloody stools
8. Rashes
9. Stomach pain persists for more than 2 hours
10. Infrequent urination
