Know The Causes Behind Stunted Growth In Children!

Everyone wants their babies to healthy and grow up to be a healthy-wealthy person. However, little they focus on this issue or are capable of giving their infants the best of medical standards. Problems show up in children early and if overlooked, may hamper their future life a lot. Constant check-ups are necessary to be it pre-birth or post the birth of a baby, and for this, a parent should always be in contact of a pediatrician.
Pediatrics is the medicinal branch that involves the health care of babies, children, and adolescents. It is recommended that people should be under pediatric care up to age 21. Pediatricians are involved with important tests that are standardized by World Health Organisation Child Growth Standards.

Stunted Growth Of Infants and Children
Also known as nutritional stunting, it is a distinctive reduced growth rate in human body development. Stunted growth is the primary manifestation of undernutrition (or malnutrition) and recurrent infections after birth and early childhood. Another main reason is the malnutrition during fetal development brought by a malnourished mother. The accurate definition of stunting according to WHO stands for the “height for age” value to be lower than two standard deviations of World Health Organisation Child Growth Standards.

In 2012, an estimated 25 percent of children under 5 years of age i.e. ~162 million children were stunted. More of this count nearing 90 percent lies only in two continents, Africa and Asia. The affected children may never regain their loss of height, and most of them will never gain the equal weight.

Health effects
Apart from shorter stature, the adolescent may get hit by the greater risk of illness, delayed mental development, lowered cognitive capacity and women with stunted growth have a higher risk of complications during delivery due to the smaller pelvis, and the child could have low birth weight during birth.

Causes of Stunted growth
Apart from malnutrition and some rare genetic disorders, South Asia and most developing nations are having a higher number of stunted children due to poor maternal nutrition, poor feeding practices, and poor sanitation.

Maternal nutrition
Poor breastfeeding during pregnancy and maternal nutrition could be a leading cause for the stunted growth of the child. Also, women who are suffering from anemia or are underweight during pregnancy are more likely to perpetuate the intergenerational transmitting of stunting.

Sanitation
Ingestion of a high number of fecal bacteria through the soiled finger in a poorly sanitized area leads to intestinal infections. This affects the nutritional status of his/her by diminishing appetite, reducing nutrition absorption and increasing nutrient loss.

Feeding practices
Inadequate feeding, lack of vital nutrients, poor calorie intake can lead to stunted growth. Minimum requirements should be met in the diet in proper frequency to avoid malnutrition.

A Note for feeding mothers
Lactating mothers should get themselves proper nutrition, and if they are in doubt of their health should postpone the decision of having a child.

Chronic diarrhoea, Celiac disease, thyroid disorders and growth hormone deficiency also contribute, significantly, to short stature. Regular measurement of height & weight on a growth chart by a trained Pediatrician helps to pick up the lags in these vital growth and development parameters.

Do not worry! Little babies become slightly fairer or darker depending on exposure to sun or genetic influence!

Hello, This is probably the right time to start weaning and it should be noted that it involves lots of experiment. Make use of this opportunity,feed her high calories homemade porridges,smoothies etc.Dark green vegetables puree can also be a healthier choice.

My son is 6 month old now and one of his testicles is not descended since birth. Should we wait for another 2-3 months or proceed with the surgery? Is surgery the only solution?

Most probably it is a case of undescended testis. In these case surgery should b done by 6 to 12 months of age of child by a pediatric surgeon.

Breastfeeding is a great way of reducing your baby belly as it triggers the contraction in uterus and thus helps the uterus to attain its normal size by shrinking it. Nursing also burns the extra calories of women without even putting an ounce of effort on her part. You may be doing exercise for belly fat but that should be in a correct way with correct postures. Beside this you need to add up high fibre diet, take vitamins like B and C in your diet, whole grain and low fat dairy products, take green tea or warm water. Be stress free, also take proper rest. This all will help you to reduce belly fat.

Which oil and of which brand should we use to massage for our new born baby ?Please tell.
Any mild oil which suits to baby. Which dose not cause red spots / rash on the skin. Massage helps for mental bonding. So it is to be done by parents. If no oil suits, it is ok with no massage also.

9 month is an age of exploring food you and baby can experiment all kinds of food just be careful about the consistency I e. It needs to be semisolids. Also refrain from using spices and high sugar. Babies gastrocolic reflex is accentuated so it's good to her Every 3-4 hours. For weight gain. Y mantra is prefer energy dense and protein rich foods.

Hello, lecorrhoea does not prevent pregnancy. However both the partners should be treated for the problem. Treatment is simple and doesn't take much time. It will not cause any harm to mother and child if non infective.

Normal newborns usually poo around 8-10 times in a day. On the other hand are some normal newborns who would poo only once in several days. If your baby is feeding well, gaining weight, passing urine, I do not see a reason to get concerned.
