My son 4.5 year 16.80 kg normal doing but sometime little pain in abdomen. Got USG done some node of 5 to 9 mm seen. Is reason to worry .please need advice.

Homeopath, Secunderabad
It requires a thorough check up and needs clinical correlation. So please discuss about your concerns with your doctor. Sometimes it becomes difficult to diagnose the problem. So have patience. If you want, you can start Homeopathy for a few weeks for his problem as it is holistic in nature and helps natural healing by stimulating the immune system. You can contact me for consultation (for a detailed case history along with all the reports - past and present ).

1. Try to introduce variety of foods. 2. Try to give natural foods. 3. Give food/ snack every 2 hours 4. Keep experimenting with different foods 5. Never force any food. 6. Make meal time as happy time with stories etc. 7. Create different animal bird shapes for roti / bread. 8. For example Milk can be given in any of its different forms. Like - milk, lassi, raita, milk shake, fruit shake, cheese, kheer, paneer. But some parents only like to force a child a simple cup of milk each and everyday. 9. Kids get bored of some/same foods easily. 10. Download new recipes from internet and try them out.

There are two different types of pneumonia vaccines are available for the children. 1 is almost double the price of other. Which one should be preferred and why?

The number of antigens covered are more in the expensive one. Hence it is more effective than the cheaper version.

I want to breastfeed .My baby is 3 months old. Currently she is on similac formula milk. When I express milk by hand I get only 20 ml milk. Tried domperidone, lactare tablets but no success. I am very frustrated sir. Pls help!

Milk production in a lactating mother is directly proportional to how much the mother suckles the baby, how much water and fluids she takes and how tension free she is. Lactaire and domperidon also are helpful. There is no reason why you will not get milk if there is compliance to guidance is done. If you express the milk you may get just 20 ml but when the baby suckles she gets much more. You can verify this by taking pre and post feed measurement on an electronic scale. Most of all, give minimal top feeds. And RELAX. Enjoy feeding.

It is frequently asked questions which I have replied many times. However if baby is active n not suffering from any disease, don't force to eat, leave her at her liberty to eat nutritious diet prepared at home including milk and its products fruits etc whenever n whatever she likes. I hope gradually she shall pick up.

Hello Doctor. My son is 16 months now. He is extremely hyperactive child, showing the following symptoms- 1) He doesn't like to play with toys. He just likes climbing on tables, chairs and window grills.  2) If we get him new toys, he will just see it for a few minutes and then throw it away.  3) He wants to be out of the house all time. He cry's to go with any unknown person when they are leaving the house.  4) If we keep him out, he will just start walking. He will not even care to see if we are there with him or not.  5) He is very impatient for something he likes. For example he is very restless while feeding him oranges. He will not allow you to peel it. He just wants it immediately and will hit you if you don't give him fast. 5) Although we keep talking to him, till now he doesn't utter any words, no actions like'bye' etc. He only yells aloud. 6) He just cannot sit in one place and needs someone constantly. If you don't play with him even for a few minutes, he will put his head on the floor and start moaning in frustration. 7) He has been a troublesome child right from birth. Hardly used to sleep for just a few minutes during the whole day and night. Now, although his sleeping pattern has improved during the nights. During the day he still sleeps less. Probably around 1 hour if at all he sleeps. 8) When he was smaller, around 9-12 months, he used to watch television advertisements with great attention. He would not blink his eyes even if you nudge him or pat him lightly on his head. This is the only thing that grabs his attention, even now. Doctor, is my child showing signs of any disorder or is it too early to predict? Does he need any treatment? please help. Thanks.

When you sit crosslegged and taking your child on your lap, there could be atemporary reduction in blood flow to the legs and this could be due to weight gain or nerve compression or blood vessel compression. For your height, of 5.3 feet, your weight is ok, so may be the problems could be due to cramps in muscles and this can be best helped by sitting with legs straight if you sit crosslegged, you must change position everyf ew minutes to allow good blood flow. If tingling numbness if there, it signifies vitamin or calcium deficiency and its better to meet a doctor before popping a pill generally many pregnant women take calcium off and on in pregnancy but do not take calcium in postd elivery period. If you are still feeding your child or if you have not taken calcium in the post delivery period, perhaps you must visit the gynecologist who will evaluate you and provide the necessary treatments.

7 years child having tonsil problem due that facing frequent ear pain as well as not growing according to age. Kindly suggest us.

MBBS, DTCD, MD, FISDA, Fellow Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleepmedicine

Tonsils help body, they are immune glands. Control diet and practise frequent betadine gargles after food. Because food particles stick to back of tonsils and cause frequent attacks.

Hi my 17 months old son fell on floor and his head struck on edge of chair. Immediately I noticed a bump on his forehead and also there was a vertical blue line in the middle of bump. He cried for few minutes. After that he was busy with his toys. He did’t vomited or anything. Now after 4 days there is still swelling on that area but lesser than before and that area is soft. He did’t feel any pain on touching it. Is this swelling normal or I should go to doctor.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Since there has been no other problem after the fall like projectile vomiting or persistent pain etc, there is no reason to worry. The swelling will remain for a few days. It will slowly go away. Thanks.

There is no any best ingredient to add in milk.Milk itself is best. If your baby is more than 6 months and is on weaning stage, you may add in milk after grinding fine and if he is older enough to chew, leave him free to choose items of his choice that shall make him familiar.
