My son is 9 months old. He is suffering from Loose Motion, frequent passage of loose stools or watery unformed stools for last six days. He has lost weight considerably and lost his appetite. Should I give him zerolac milk power.

MD - Homeopathy
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Firstly treat his loose motions as it is being 6 days now. Increase intake of water in form of ors, lemon juice, fruit juice, buttermilk. Give over ripped banana, pomegranate juice, curd and rice. These are easy to digest and will give energy also.

If child is active and gaining weight according to his age then train him for toileting habit by encouraging him to sit on pot daily or twice in a day for about 5-10 minutes, give good quantity of water and liquids to drink. It may be helpful.

Child Development and Behavior

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
General Physician, Bangalore
Child Development and Behavior

Behavior of a child should always be closely monitored during his/her early development. Sometimes signs of several personality disorders tend to show up early in life. Proper monitoring of the child's behavior helps to identify the signs and properly diagnose the condition if the child is suffering from any potential personality disorder. 

Here are a few facts you should keep in mind:

  1. You might often find it difficult to differentiate between the normal and abnormal behavior of your child. You might consult the pediatrician in this case to compare the child's general behavioral patterns with that of other children in the same age group.
  2. It is very important to understand your child's development process. It helps you to interpret his/her behavior and to identify signs of personality disorder.
  3. There are a few common behavior patterns, which tend to act as a guide to understanding the behavior of your child. Some of these patterns should be encouraged as they lead to proper behavioral development of your child while patterns of negative behavior should be discouraged. 
  4. You should also consult a doctor if your child shows negative behavior persistently even after disciplining measures.
  5. Being polite, doing chores on a regular basis, following instructions should be encouraged and rewarded as it helps in the proper personality development of your child.
  6. Behavioral patterns like an inclination towards defensive, regressive and aggressive behavior should not be encouraged but can be tolerated in certain situations like illness or in times of stress.
  7. Behavioral patterns like an increased inclination to violence or an excessive competitive attitude towards their siblings should never be allowed. 
  8. Prejudice or racism, stealing or inclination towards substance abuse, angry outbursts point towards problems in the child's mental, physical or social well-being. You are also advised to take your child to a psychological expert to find out whether he/she is suffering from any sort of behavioral disorder. 
  9. Your behavior also plays a major role in development of your child and his/her behavioral patterns. It is often seen that if a child is subjected to excessive physical, mental or emotional abuse or is engaged in too many curricular and extracurricular activities, he/she is likely to develop several behavioral disorders over time.

Does she have constipation? does she pass stools with difficulty or hard stools? this is the age group in which children are often constipated? first add fibre to diet and adequate water. Fruits, ghee, green vegetables, banana are good in fibre. Wheat chapati etc. Also show your child to a paediatric surgeon who will do per rectal examination to rule out anal fissure. Give her sitz bath. Before going to bed make her sit in hot water tub.

Dear Lybrate user. Possible causes. A delay in Speech skills can happen for many reasons, including: Problems with a child’s tongue or the roof of his mouth, which makes it hard to form sounds and words Hearing loss. Kids who’ve had a lot of ear infections can have hearing problems. A learning disability A developmental disorder, such as cerebral palsy or autism spectrum disorder What you can do. If you think your child has a problem with his speech or language, let his doctor know right away. The doctor will need to test his hearing. She’ll probably also suggest that your child see a professional who can diagnose and treat these delays, called a speech-language pathologist or speech therapist. This specialist will study how your child expresses himself, including: What he understands What he can say Other ways he tries to get his thoughts across, such as gestures or nodding If your child does have a delay, he might need speech therapy. A therapist can work with him on how to pronounce words and sounds, and strengthen the muscles in his face and mouth. You can also work with your child on speech and language:
