Dear lybrate-user, is your delivery normal/ caesar. Wats your present weight. Since your feeding your baby, its not advisable to go for internal medicine rite nw. Because mother's feed is very important for a baby & also you can regularise your body weight only by feeding your baby. Don't be stress or panic. Its easy to reduce weight. Kindly reply to my questions so that I can guide you in an easy way. Enjoy motherhood. Have a great day thank you.

U have said after taking biscuits, his stool became hard so biscuit is culprit. Stop biscuit or minimize it and add vegetables, fibrous food and plenty of water/ liquid in his diet.

My nephew is 11 months old. When he was born both kidneys are differing in size and doctors mentioned it is not a problem. But from 2 weeks he is suffering from fever irregularly. So we got blood and urine and found there is urine infection. We got the ultrasound of kidney again and there is still the difference. Is that causing this urine infection? Attached the new scan reports.

It's called as growing pain. Many children of that age have that. You can give some analgesic like paracetamol if it's unbearable.

Children below one and two years get frequent cough and cold due their general resistance is less. Some children are allergic to dust, pollution, change in weather etc. As the child keeps growing their resistance increases and the number of attacks (cough and cold) come down. But whenever child suffers take to a paediatrician and use medicines as advised. Take all the vaccinations accordingly as advised to protect and increase immunity. We cannot predict how milk a child drinks. You have to feed the baby as much as the baby drinks.

If there is no eye brow at al, the hair roots there may be absent and you have to see if hair transplant is possible and a cosmetic surgeon can help. The colour change is genetic and there may not be much to do . You can use Johnsons soap and apply olive oil

My 34 month old baby, was potty trained and was diaper free since she was 27 months. Lately, she refuses to do potty in pot and holds it for 2-3-4 days and ultimately she does it in her pants. I thought it's cause of constipation hard potty and it might be hurting her. I started with prunes, apples, cantaloupe and other fruits. She took whole grain food, daal, curd, veggies and has water regularly. Goes to pee in the pot and says she wants to pee. But potty, until I catch her trying to do potty, like her facial expressions changes, she does not do it in pot. Her stool is not hard nor soft but it's of normal shape and consistency. Please suggest me how I can resolve this problem. Thank you!

Your child probably has developed some fear of potty seat. It could be bcos of constipation and she is more comfortable in passing stool in standing position. Include lots of fibre in her diet sp fruits, vegs, oats etc. Give her lots of water and other fluids like coconut water, lassi lemon water, milk. Encourage her to try passing stool at the same time each morning. For a few days, you sit on a stool in the washroom in front of her when she is passing stool, holding her hand, talking to her, encouraging her, telling her that it's not going to hurt. She shd be ok within a few days. All the best.

The child also needs to be coached on to how to channelize the Anger towards something constructive. Also proper communication skills need to be imparted. He is at a very tender age and each incident is imprinted in the unconscious mind and moulds our behavior. The child definitely needs a life coach or child psychologist to overcome the trauma he has beared and channelize his feelings constructively.

My daughter is 4 years old and weighs only 15 kgs. She does not have any ailments and is very active. But her weight seems below normal and she looks skinny. She eats normally although with a few tantrums and loves regular fruits and vegetables. Is there any way by which her weight can improve?

If she is active she is well, and active children usually do not put on extra weight. Give her food containing proteins like milk products and dhal and pulses.

Hi! My sister gave a birth to baby boy on 14.8.17 after almost ten hours of birth baby passed his stool and thereafter for three consecutive days baby passed his stool twice or thrice times a day. To our surprise for the last 4 to 5 days baby is not passing stool at all though urinating normally. Even we gave formula milk two times a day (40 ml) and the baby has been on regular intervals of two hours breast feed too. It has become major concern for us why the baby is not passing stool.

Hello lybrate-user. Congrats for little bundle of joy. Breastmilk is easy to digest and 100 %used by body so it is not common for breastfeed babies to pass stool even once in a week. So if baby is passing urine 6-7 times a day and is otherwise comfortable don't worry about stool. Try to avoid formula and give exclusive breastfeeding as latter has many health benefits.

ADHD - 3 Common Signs!

Masters of Philosphy, Master of Science, Bachelor of Sciences

ADHD - 3 Common Signs!

ADHD refers to attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, which is a brain-related condition found among preschoolers, children, teenagers and in many cases extends well into adulthood. These individuals have significant impairment in academics as well as social situations and interpersonal relations. The child has difficulty sustaining attention, phases of hyper activeness and cannot control his/her impulses which make their day to day life at school and home difficult.

ADHD Symptoms

The symptoms of this disorder among children can be categorized under three headings.

  1. Hyperactivity which includes
    1. Fidgeting
    2. Restlessness
    3. Inability to stay at one place runs around and tries to climb things
    4. Trouble playing quietly
    5. Excessive talking
  2. Inattention, which can be divided into symptoms like
    1. Getting easily distracted
    2. Tendency to loose things
    3. Daydreaming
    4. Facing problems related to organizing things
    5. Not listening carefully
    6. Forgetting about daily activities, carelessness
  3. Impulsiveness
    1. Interrupts others as they speak and talks out of turn
    2. Answers questions without listening to what has been asked
    3. Not being able to wait for their turn to come

Prevalence :
10-12% of school children before puberty are affected by one or more types of ADHD. ADHD especially hyperactivity is more prevalent in boys than in girls, with the ratio up to 9:1. Inattention and poor concentration are more commonly seen amongst girls. The rate of ADHD in parents and sibling of children with ADHD is 5-10 times higher than in the general population.

ADHD Causes
The probable causes of ADHD among children are,

  1. Neurodevelopmental changes - Poorly developed activity of the brain particularly in the areas that control attention and concentration cause ADHD. This causes an imbalance in the neurotransmitters or the chemicals important for brain functioning and development.
  2. Genetic Factors - genetic studies show that ADHD is largely hereditary in nature with a heritability of 75% approximately. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.
