Hi my daughter is 2 months old and I breastfeed her after sucking for few minutes she sleeps while feeding and I don 't understand whether her stomach is full or not, so since last few days i've started pumping my milk through a manual machine n feeding her will it decrease the supply of my breast milk? please help me.

All babies sleep while feeding and most of the say time. If sh e sleeps you have to scratch her feet or ear and wake her up. Using pump will not be needed then and it is not known to decrease milk

My Son 4.5 years old how to get rid of his bedwetting problem. Please suggest how to stop bed wetting. Is it dangerous if not cured?

Some children continue to bedwet upto 5years and a few even beyond. It is important to have an evaluation for treatable causes of bedwetting like urinary tract infection, unrecgnised constipation or incomplete evacuation, presence of threadworms etc.

You have to take care of feeding by not bottle feeding and if you give semisolids, give water slo in between. There are colic medicines.

milk generally isn't insufficient let her suckle till she sleeps. If the cries are harsh then there might be some other problem like colic etc.

I think you have inverted nipples. You should pull them out gently 20 to 30 times in the morning and evening. You can also try syringing which is taught by a pediatrician. For sore nipples apply your milk only which comes at the end of feeding.

Common School Related Problems In Children!

M.Sc - Applied Psychology, M.Phil - Psychology

Ups and downs at school are part of life for many young people. A good relationship with your child’s school and teachers can help you head off problems. If school problems come up,  it’s important that you quickly recognize and address them.
Problems at school can show up as poor academic performance, lack of motivation for school, loss of interest in school work, or poor relationships with peers or teachers.
School difficulties range from minor to severe, might be very short-lived or last for longer.
Common signs of school problems-

  •  Drop in marks in one or more subjects.
  •  Lack of engagement, connection or involvement with school – for example, your child might not be interested in extracurricular activities or have very few friends.
  • Showing embarrassment or discomfort when talking about school.School difficulties range from minor to severe, might be very short-lived or last for longer.
    Common signs of school problems-
  • Refusing to talk with you about school, or rarely talking about school with family or friends.
  • Never or rarely doing homework, or rarely talking about homework.
  • Having low confidence or lacking self-esteem – your child might say she is ‘dumb’, ‘stupid’ or not as clever as her friends.
  • Being kept back at lunch time or the end of the school day.
  • Finding excuses not to go to school or skipping school without your knowledge.
  • Being bored with school work or not feeling challenged enough – your child might say he’s not learning anything new.
  • Having attention or behavior problems.
  • Being bullied or bullying others.

Sometimes, problems at school will be easy to spot, and your child will willingly talk to you about them.

But some children hide problems from their parents, teachers and peers. They might copy homework, pretend to be sick during important tests, or not bring reports home. This can make it very difficult for you to pick up on a problem. Sometimes even teachers might not spot the clues – especially if your child is absent a lot.

Causes of school problems

  1. Behavioral or developmental difficulties.
  2. Poor communication skills.
  3. Poor social skills.
  4. Difficulty with listening, concentrating or sitting still.
  5. Disliking, or not feeling connected to, the school culture or environment.
  6. Disliking school subjects, not liking the choice of subjects, or not feeling challenged by the work
  7. Not getting along with teachers or other students at school.
  8. Parents who aren’t involved in their child’s education.
  9. Family problems such as relationship breakdowns.
  10. Competing demands on time, such as extracurricular activities.
  11. Skipping school because of any of the reasons listed above.
