Most often constipation in infants is not a seriously problem. You need not to anything as long as he is comfortable, meaning there is no vomiting, excessive crying, or refusal of feeds . Give multivitamin drops in case you are not.

Be patient/ calm/ cool. Weight is ok. Once see your pediatrician so if any deficiency, it can be treated. Do not force feed.

These kind a drinks cut of age is 2 years. We don't these heavy protein load drinks before 2 years. Secondly you have plenty of drinks which are home made. Like kheer. Raab. Rabdi. Apple milk shake. Etc which would give you similar advantage. Alas in cost effective way! ;)

You are supposed to train your baby to take food like you do. It is like training baby to learn a langauge. Any way give her home made food after every 2 hours. Never force food or accept any undue demand to take food. Have patience child will demand or even snatch food when hunger is intence. Hunger is a natural reflex & no medicine is required to activate it.

My 4 year old Son is suffering from ITP from Dec'15. He has a plate count of around 35000. He has been on prednisolone dosage tapering from 20 mg to 2.5 mg per day till 10th Jun'16. Now he is taking only Azoran 50 mg daily. He does not have any bleeding symptoms, only some bruises.

Oh! i'm sure child must have got ivig therapy intially. Well in itp 35000/- pc are indeed good. We see kids having pc of even 2000 to 10000. Without any bleed. Eventually they recover. Tapering regimen is very much required and your doc is very well doing that. Azoran is usually prescribed when there are refractory cases where pc were low for quite a low and or child comes with secondary itp. So I assume your case also be such tough. Be assured things are going to be fine. Have patience and make sure child doesn't get injury anywhere. Trauma would be worst in such cases. Regards

You have not mentioned his weight and height. If weight is appropriate for the age nothing to worry. Nowadays putting on lot weight is not advisable as its a associated with various health complicates like diabetes, hypertension etc. To improve his immunity give nutritious diet and engage him in physical activity.

Dear lybrate user, its always good to start on your fitness program. Every step matters. Its never too late. Aim should be to do intensive cardio/aerobic exercises for at least an hour every day. Regular mat based yoga is too slow/light to give any significant weight loss benefits. Better to go to gym and do your own exercises. Or join zumba or aerobic classes. If you are going to gym you can follow following routine. #a. 5 minutes light warm up with side jumps and stretches. #b. 10 minutes treadmill with speeds from 6-8 kmph #c. 10 mins abs and stretches. #d. 10 mins cycling with speeds from 25-32 kmph. #e 5 mins. Light weights and dumbells #6.10 mins treadmill #7.10 mins stretches and abs crunches. Stay fit. Stay healthy. Stay happy.

Pentaxim is banned in India and other countries. The WHO has advised all countries to stop giving this vaccine. Some recent studies proved that the Pertusis vaccine included in the Pentaxim does not work. Pediatricians know about this issue but some continue giving. It is wise though for us mom to be aware of it. I think you should go for the painful ones. Its ok if your baby will suffer fever and pain for couple of days if that means there is no chance of him getting any of those diseases later on in life. But then again, it is your choice. Just choose what is best for your baby. :) You can switch over and there is no problem

This is umbilical hernia. Itself it is not serious but if air filled like small balloon which is a part of intestine may get strangulated in it which is serious cause. It is better to consult either pediatrician or surgeon.

Lybrate-user your 4 month old baby may be crying because of hunger, colic or may be requiring your attention. If you are just giving milk please try and introduce some liquid diet so your problem will be solved if hunger is the reason for which your baby is crying.

Is My Child Short?

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics, FRACP - Pediatrc Endocrinology, SCE, Endocrinology
Endocrinologist, Kanpur
Is My Child Short?

Growth is the most important aspect of childhood, one that distinguishes children from adults. Growth is affected by a number of diseases and growth failure is often the first sign of a serious disease. Unfortunately children with growth failure present very late when no help is possible. 

Why to worry?

Growth is the best marker of health and growth failure may be caused by a seious disease. Moreover children with short stature have lower self esteem. 

When to worry? 

Plot the height of your child in the growth chart and if it is below the lower limit visit a doctor. Alternatively if your child's height is less than the formula (Height = Age in years x 6 + 77 cm) it may be a cause of concern. Growth stops at the age of 14 years in girls and 16 years in boys. Hence the child should be reviewed latest by 10 years for girls and 12 years for boys. 

What causes growth failure? 

Growth failure can be due to a number of causes including poor nutrition, lack of physical activities and low genetic potential with parents being short. Short stature can also be caused by a number of diseases like thyroid problems, growth hormone deifiency and celiac disease (wheat allergy). 

How can I improve my child's growth?

Please encourage your child to play for atleast 1 hour a day. It is important to restrict screen time including television, computer, tablets and mobiles to less than an hour. Increased protein and calcium intake with more milk, pulses and vegetables also helps in improving growth. Growth hormone is produced during sleep. Sleeping for at least eight hours a day is therefore essential for a child to achieve good growth. 

What can be done if my child is very short? 

Please consut a doctor to identify the cause of short stature. Most conditions are readily treatable. Children with growth hormone deficiency respond dramatically to growth hormone. Growth hormone is also being used now in children with turner syndrome, familial short staure, small size at birth and kidney disease

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Endocrinologist.

Any milk other than breastmilk is not safe for a newborn baby. If mother consumes adequate fluids & food there will be enough milk secretion. If at all you want to give other milk nan 1 can be given.
