It is the result of poor toilet training in early childhood. You do not give any liquids and urinate her before bed time, set some alarm at night to ask her for urination. You can also use bed wetting alarms available in the market.

You can go for investigations to rule out tuberculosis. Also the lympnodes might be enlarged due to local infection. A course of antibiotics if causes regression of size of lumps then tb is less likely. Also for primary complex (TB) the child must be having features of decreased appetite, weight loss, low grade fever, contact with person having TB or taking drug treatment for tuberculosis.

Deficiency of Iron in Children

PALS, MD, MBBS

For the growth and development of children, they need an essential nutrient Iron. It helps in the transfer of oxygen from lungs to the body's tissues. Red blood cells contain iron in the hemoglobin. The hemoglobin carries oxygen in the blood to the different parts of the body. Iron has an important role to play in the development of brain and generating energy in a child's body. The lack of sufficient iron in the child's body can lead to anemia, which is a nutritional deficient illness and will require medical attention. When a child suffers from anemia, the lack of oxygen makes a child weak and sick.

There are certain symptoms of Iron deficiency in a child's body. These are:

Infections and weak immune system can make a child suffer from frequent infections.
Lethargy and fatigue is another common symptom of an iron deficient body. Due to deficiency of Iron it is difficult for the body to transport oxygen to cells in the body and hence it unable to generate enough energy levels.
Breathlessness and increased sweating can be a sign that your child may be suffering from iron deficiency.
Pica Children suffering from iron deficiency may find a special taste for non-food substances like chalk, dirt and clay.
Lack of iron in the body hampers the physical growth of a child.

The deficiency of iron in children can be diagnosed through blood tests. Your doctor may recommend supplementing iron content orally or through multivitamin medicines. But the deficiency of Iron in a child's body should be taken care of with absolute urgency.

Proper steps should be taken to prevent the deficiency of Iron in children. Those notable precautions are mentioned below:

Balanced diet: A well balanced diet is always recommended. For older children (within 9-12 years of age), red meat, chicken and fish would suffice as good sources of iron.
Oral iron supplements: Oral iron supplements would be required for children with low weight at birth and who have a deficiency of iron in their daily diet.
Vitamin C: Foods such as strawberries, tomatoes and potatoes help in providing the sufficient iron content when included in daily diets, thus reducing the chances of anemia.

You maybe suffering from allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.

How to Deal with Early Puberty

Puberty is a time when a girl's body begins to define itself in more womanly terms. This is the start of a process that will usher in decades of sexual activeness and child bearing years. The changes that a girl goes through during this period can be quite challenging with a play of hormones as well as physical changes, such as growth of hair in private parts and the development of breasts, among various other changes. When these changes come at an early age, it can be all the more challenging to cope and comprehend the process. The onset of early puberty is something that is becoming more and more common with girls between the age bracket of 12 & 13. How can you help deal with early puberty? Here's a list of tips!

1. Self-Image: One of the most important side effects of early puberty remains one's image of the self, as this phase in life is characterised by the most dramatic physical changes that can leave a lifelong effect on the girl's mind. The reinforcement of positive self-image to help the girl grow more comfortable in her skin despite the wide array of feedback she may be getting from sources outside the home, will help in creating a positive impact on a lifelong basis.

2. Doubts: This is a time when the child goes through a number of doubts regarding looks and appearance as well as how well she may be able to cope with the onset of the new process. As parents, the best thing to do is to let the child explore this terrain even as you remain firmly in the background for hand holding when the child asks for it. This will help the girl become even more confident to take life's decision more efficiently and seriously.

3. Talking About It: The best thing to do is to talk things out. Once you start seeing the changes in the girl's appearance by way of hair growth and sudden sprouting of breasts and height, it is important to understand that puberty may be close by. So have a talk about menstrual cycles and the changes that the child will be seeing soon. This will help in mentally preparing the child and giving her the leeway to ask questions that you can answer over a period of time.

4. Opposite Sex: It would also be beneficial to discuss the changes in the behaviour of boys towards her, as this will help her blossom into a more confident lady in the years to come.

Remember to love and support your child through this important milestone of her life, as the way you reach can have a lasting impact on her.

Your baby could be having urinary tract infection. She needs a good urine routine examination, culture of urine (collected mid stream or suprapubic) and enclose the usg report. If uti she may need intravenous antibiotics after taking urine and blood culture. Please view this seriously as vesicoureteric reflux needs to be looked at.

Do not scold your child and no medicine is needed but check his tsh and inform. Consider causes. Understanding causes will restore your trust in your child to do her part with feeding. To fully understand those causes, you and your child need to have had a full assessment, including longitudinal and developmental history and growth and, most particularly, feeding dynamics past and present. Most medical and even nutritional assessments don't address feeding dynamics and history, and it leaves a gap in understanding. Medical assessments and labs are helpful with respect to indicating whether your child has recovered from early medical maladies and/or has some other malady.

Your daughter either must be bottle fed or taking to much sugar. Night time keeping bottle for long time in mouth while sleeping is commonest cause of caries, frequent fruit juices, health drinks, sticking sweet candies are also frequent causes. So please avoid all these. Proper brushing both times with fluorinated tooth paste is important. Consult dentist to prevent further progress to other teeth and gums.

If the nipple does not latch on to the baby's mouth the nipple may be retracted and sipple shield can be kept and feed the baby. Milk will form in due course and lactare capsules help increase milk.

Hello, your baby is very young to start something solid food. He must be on mother's feed now. But if you have started giving him cerelac then it should a liquid preparation. When your baby completes 6 months then only you should start top food. Take care.
