Since it has never been researched thoroughly its difficult to comment on the benefits or harmful effects. So if you go by the traditions then be vigilant that you use a genuine product and give a small dose. Check whether it suits her. The best nutrition is nothing but the daily food that we consume. Give all variety of fruits and vegetables and give the staple food as a routine.

Hello. Your child is suffering from vitamin d deficiency, then just putting him in sun is not sufficient. He nerds v to be given vitamin d supplements either orally or by injection. Also continue calcium supplements along with vitamin d. For dandruff, use a medicated shampoo such as scalp shampoo or nizoral shampoo.

It appears, probably your brother had never been dry since birth. in such cases there are chances of defect in urinary path way. If he has restarted bed wetting after a good dry period of years, get him investigated for urinary infection and look for any stress. Cure is according to cause.

Headache and dizziness can be because of some opthalmic refractory error- means he might need specs. So first check his number and if its ok, see a pediatric neurophysician.

Care of child's teeth

Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Research, BDS
Dentist, Kolkata
Proper posture of the child in feeding is essential to prevent rampant caries. If a child is fed in bottles containing sweetened additives in lying posture in the night time or sleeps with the bottle nipple in his mouth there is a high possibility of rampant caries and baby bottle syndrome. Brushing the childs teeth at night is a must prefarably with a fluoridated toothpaste but the quantity of the paste given to the child should not be more than one pea size. Visit your child's dentist every 6 months.

Height depends on genetic & envoirnmental factors. Longterm steroid administration may lead to stunting. You only have little chance of increase in height now.

You should not try to make children fat as obesity is associated with many complications. If the weight is around 9 kgs it's normal.

Hi There is developmental delay in all spheres (motor, adaptive and social) in children with Down’s syndrome and most common genetic cause of learning disability & mental retardation. As there is no curative therapy, counseling has a central role to play in the management. Having Down's syndrome child can be challenging at times. But with help professional support, most people are able to have healthy, active and more independent lives. There are many children who have done wonders and hence take it as chanllenge and support your kid to develop and learn.

Can I give junior horlics to my baby, who is one year old? What kinds of food he should have in this age?
These are of no benefit other than changing the taste. Give whatever you eat in a form which he can eat easily. Vegetables, pulses, rice, egg etc. Soups good. Juices do not benefit much. Reduce milk.

Yes many a kids gets neonatal conjuctivitis due to the infective secretion from birth passage. Many a times it heals on its own but sometimes we have to give some eye drops, so its perfectly ok.

New born baby sleeps for about 18-20 hours in a day and wake up in between particularly either for feed or when he gets wet. Don; t try to wake baby except when baby has not taken feed for about more than 3 hours.
