You don't need to worry about it if other mile stone are on proper time. Like teething, walking. If his growth is proper, height weight and body growing proper. It generally happen in nuclear family. You just need to talk with your baby more. Don't waste money on therapist. And you don't need to worry.

My daughter 3.5 years old by mistake had diabetic (glyco mat) tablet, within a seconds we take out from her mouth, what is the short run side-effect, what is long run-effect?

As you have taken out within seconds, it was not absorbed so no need to worry. Precautionary you may give sugar for 2 to 3 times. There should not be any long or short side effects.

How to Manage if Your Child Is Suffering From Asthma

How to Manage if Your Child Is Suffering From Asthma

Asthma is a condition that can flare up anytime; be it at your child's soccer practice or during the middle of the night. Whenever the condition sets in, it leads to your child struggling for breath. For a parent to witness this situation can be hard; but you should know the techniques to keep the situation under control.

Here are a few tips on how to manage the situation:

1. Find out the triggers in your home: Asthma is triggered due to substances that your child may be allergic to. Examples are cigarette smoke, fur of pets and dust. If possible, keep your child away from the known triggers so that the condition does not flare up again.

2. Keep records of the following: It is good to have an action plan ready for your child when the bouts of asthma strike. When you visit the doctor to discuss about your child's condition then make sure that you have these records at hand.

  • The triggers that caused the bout of asthma
  • How many times did your child have wheezing episodes?
  • The number of times your child has been admitted for the same reason
  • The medications that your child is currently taking, dosage and/or whether they have been changed
  • How often does he/she need medications if he/she has acute symptoms?

3. Knowledge of the test your child may require: Asthma control test is a type of test that allows parents and children to grade asthma symptoms without a doctor. A pulmonary function test is used to detect the capacity of the lungs and flow of air.

4. See how your child responds to the treatments: You should consider changing the treatments for your child if he/she has recurrent symptoms of asthma attack and require frequent visits to the Emergency Room even after taking medications for an extended duration.

5. Long term treatment plans require patience: Any asthma treatment plan requires patience as they might not immediately cure symptoms. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Growth depends on lot of factors like genetics, nutrition, physical and psychosocial environment. Average weight at this age is about 11 kgs. It also depends on the child's birth weight and growth potential. Children become more active and less interested in food at this age. Child should be offered balanced food and allowed to self feed as much as possible.

Viral wil take 3-5 days. Dont panic. Continue same meds and give plenty of fluids and try feeding him though he wont be very hungry. If he is sick after 4 days then only ask for reassessment.

Autism spectrum disorder is a serious neurodevelopmental disorder that impairs a child's ability to communicate and interact with others. It also includes restricted repetitive behaviors, interests and activities. These issues cause significant impairment in social, occupational and other areas of functioning. There is no cure of the disease but you need to consult a developmental pediatrician for evaluation and intervention like cognitive behaviour therapy interaction and rehabilitation. You need not be disappointed. There is huge scope for improvement. Best wishes

My daughter is 4 yrs old. When I am about to feed her anything she starts crying. It may b breakfast or lunch or dinner. Why does this happen with her? her weight is 15 kgs.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Her weight is in normal range. Probably like all anxious parents, you are trying to control her which she doesn't like. under this condition what else she can do? Tell me. Your anxiety makes you forget that she has a mind of her own, which would not like to be dictated by others.Live her alone, love her unconditionally. Let her exercise her choice about what,when and how to eat. Then she will be more receptive to your advice. Practice what you preach, eat everything in front of /with her, whatever you want her to eat. Hope this helps.
