Hi, you have delivered just one month ago. Your menstruation may at art after a while if you are breast feeding. Also after six weeks if normal delivery and after 3 months if delivery is by c section you can start post natal exercises which will help you to get back in to your shape. Consult your obstetrician who did your delivery or a physiotherapist and learn the exercises.

Parents Guide to Teen Depression!

Parents Guide to Teen Depression!

Teen depression seems to be on the rise in the recent past. It is a serious mental health issue which can lead to changes in how the adolescent feels, thinks and behaves. Teen depression can also lead to significant changes in emotional and physical wellbeing. While depression can occur anytime during a person’s lifetime, the symptoms experienced in adolescence can vary from that experienced during adulthood. Some of these include excess self-criticism, trouble in making decisions, neglected appearance, increased risk-taking behaviour, decreased motivation and increased school absence. Some factors which can cause teen depression are early childhood trauma, loss of parent/s, bullying or physical/emotional/sexual abuse. Teen depression can lead to abuse of alcohol/drugs, low self-esteem, academic failure, self-harming behaviour or suicide.

Here are a few things you can do to help a teenager who is suffering from depression:

1. Focus on listening not lecturing:

Resist the urge to criticize or lecture your teen when they are talking to you about their feelings. The important thing is that they are communicating with you instead of shutting you out.

2. Be supportive:

It is important to understand that your teen is working through something and may need your help when trying to overcome it. Try to validate his/her emotions instead of feeling irritated that they seem to be having mood swings.

3. Ask questions:

The best way to understand what is going on with your teen is by asking them questions. Do this in such a way that they do not feel pressured to answer. Even if you have the best intentions, do not push them into answering your questions. Wait for them to be ready to talk to you.

4. Encourage socializing:

It is good for your teen to go out and socialize, but they may not be feeling up to the task. It is upto you to encourage this without making it sound like you are criticizing their behaviour. Instead of saying “ I think you should go out and get some fresh air” say something like “I’m going to the mall, let me know if you want to come with me.” This way they do not feel any pressure to do something they may not want to.

5. Notice the positive:

Make sure you point out the positive things your teen does. This can be something like going to school on a daily basis, doing well on a test or even eating meals on time. If you point out these small things, they will feel appreciated and will remember to continue doing those things.

Proper positioning for breastfeeding

Proper positioning for breastfeeding
It is very important to position your baby well while breastfeeding. Not only would it ensure that the baby gets sufficient milk for the efforts he/she makes in suckling, it would ensure that you do not suffer from pain and sore/cracked nipples, and that your baby wouldn't get frustrated and refuse to breastfeed.

A defect in one of several genes that produce or distribute melanin causes albinism. The defect may result in the absence of melanin production, or a reduced amount of melanin production. The defective gene passes down from both parents to the child and causes albinism.Because the disease is genetic, there are no cures; treatment revolves around minimizing the symptoms and watching for changes. Getting the right care for eye problems is essential, including prescription glasses, dark glasses to protect the eyes from the sun and regular eye exams. It is also important to watch the skin for changes and to use sunblock to for protection. Surgery on the optical muscles can sometimes minimize the "shaking" in nystagmus. Similarly, operations to minimize strabismus can make it less noticeable. The surgery does not improve vision, however, and the level of success in reducing symptoms varies from individual to individual. Albinism does not get worse with age, and a child with albinism is able to flourish and achieve the same education and employment as a person without the condition.

Occurence of diaper rash is very common in babies who are less than a year old. Change their diapers frequently, use gentle baby wipes for cleaning the bottom area and try applying petroleum jelly for preventing the condition.

Hi Mr. D there is no issue in feeding your baby if he is otherwise well. You will have to monitor for jaundice and if baby is B+ve then anti-D injection has to be given for the mother in order to protect next baby from haemolytic disease due to blood group incompatibility.
