Babies are born bowlegged because of their position in the womb. You may notice bowleggedness more as your child starts to stand and walk, but typically the legs gradually straighten out. By age 3, most kids no longer appear bowlegged. It's absolutely normal for a baby's legs to appear bowed, so that if he were to stand up with his toes forward and his ankles touching, his knees wouldn't touch. Babies are born bowlegged because of their position in the womb. And by age 7 or 8, most children's legs have reached the angle they'll retain into adulthood. Most mothers complain that their baby's leg is curved which ia normal finding .It will become over time. To make sure you show it to a pediatrician.

My cousin sister is 8 years old, from last 7-8 months I have observing different changes in her behavior. She do not gell up with kids at school, apart from that, she have even started getting jealous with the others, if her parents give attention to some other child, though she is the only child. As per what I have observed, the jealousy or insecurity she faces is with the child of same gender (ex. If her parents gifts anything to any girl, she starts crying loud, or even if they talk to any other kid politely, even then there is a trouble.(i have not seen the same for the other sex). I am very much worried because few months back, it never happened & now this thing is at its pace.

Dear user. I can understand. But there is nothing to be alarmed, panic or worried. The child is just 8 years old and the child is developing emotional behavior patterns. At this age period all children go through emotional turmoil. Parents and others need to make the child emotionally strong and stable. To achieve this, you should approach the behavior with stringent and no-respite confrontation. I suggest online counseling so that this aspect can be made understood. Take care.

My son is 3.4 years old. Till the age of 3 he had a regular period of passing stool. Every morning immediately after he used to get up. All of a sudden he has started passing his stool every 4 days. He does not eat ant fruit except banana and cough. He has fruit juices. I also give him green veggies. But he has no other problem like stomach bloating or pain .hes happy and playful and active too. I consulted his pediatrician. He said give him leafy vegetables. But m still worried.

Hi lybrate-user You need to increase fibre in his diet and give chapati of multigrain atta with ghee and gur. Also put methi or palak in atta and make paratha and give to child with butter or ghee. Stop biscuits and Maida products immediately. If child eats bread then give veg sandwich with cheese. Also can try giving gur daliya.

Children usually of that age crave for indigestible things like as you said, so please try to avoid them and if continued this will become a habit. Usually children eat slate pencils and chalk pieces because of calcium deficiency and they need calcium supplements.

Breastfeed And Its Importance

How Long To Breastfeed To Get Benefits?

There is no fixed duration to breastfeed. When considering the duration you wish to feed your baby, do take note of the following points:

Exclusive till six months: Pediatric and medical experts throughout the globe recommend exclusive breastfeeding up to six months and then breastfeeding in combination with solid food for up to 12 months.
Continue after 12 months: The AAP recommends breastfeeding beyond the first birthday and encourages mothers to do so. A toddler may get most of his nutrition from solid food, but he still enjoys added benefits of breastmilk that contains unique substances such as antibodies.

Can extend to two years and beyond: The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends breastfeeding up to two years and even beyond if the mother and toddler wish to do so. WHO states that breastmilk is a “natural food”. Even when the baby is a year-and-a-half old, breastmilk is capable of providing a third of the toddler’s nutritional requirements.

What Are The Benefits Of Breastfeeding For The Mother?
Here are some scientifically proven benefits of breastfeeding a baby.

Health benefits:
While your baby benefits from the breastmilk, you gain health advantages as well.

  • Quick postpartum recovery: Mothers who breast-feed recover faster post-delivery even if it is a Cesarean-section. It happens because suckling of the nipples releases the hormone oxytocin, which speeds the recovery of the uterus, letting it regain its original shape.
  • Breastfeeding can help you lose pregnancy fat: Producing milk uses additional calories that body sources from the body fat accumulated during pregnancy. It means, mothers, who exclusively breastfeed, tend to return to their pre-pregnancy shape and weight faster.
  • Lower risk of breast and ovarian cancers: The chances of getting breast and ovarian cancers are lower in women who breastfeed. Researchers found that a woman can reduce her risk of breast cancer by 50% if she breastfed for two years in life. Other studies noted a reduced chance of having ovarian cancer if the mother breastfed at least for a year. These benefits last a lifetime thus making breastfeeding a form of natural health insurance for a woman.
  • Lowers the risk of high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes: Extensive research has proven that when you breastfeed, you invariably reduce the chance of developing hypertension (high blood pressure), cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack, and type 2 diabetes.

Normal diet of small child is. From birth to 5-6 months-- breast feed only 3-4 hrly interval six times a day. Their after start reducing the frequency of breast feed and start with soup like feeds two times at six months, increase to four times at one year. Breast at one year is given only two times for 10-20 minutes only. Next step in development is self feeding. By 9 months child start picking up things lying on floor and put it in mouth. That he should be taught self feeding. This period runs upto 18 months. Your child has to pass all these stages. First find out what type s of food he likes of course at home. Give these food six times to be eaten by himself. It is high time child learn to eat by themselves. Otherwise they become timid children.

This is called somnambulism and you wake her up in walk and there is no medicine needed Medical Treatment for Sleepwalking. If sleepwalking is caused by underlying medical conditions, such as gastroesophageal reflux, obstructive sleep apnea, seizures, periodic leg movements, or restless legs syndrome, sleepwalking episodes should stop once the underlying medical condition is treated.
