It seems to be case of night terrors inwhich child loses the control in night occasionally. Paediatrician will be able to guide you appropriately after a initial evaluation. You need no to worry. It is not something serious.

INFANT AND MATERNAL MORTALITY.
Infant mortality is still very high in India.
40% infant mortality occurs in first 30 days of birth.
50% of these death can be prevented by simple measure like cleanliness,hand hyegine, preventing hypothermia and breast feeding, which require just public education and awareness.
Important causes of maternal mortality are anaemia,preeclapsia,eclapsia.sepsis and post partumhaemorrage.
These can be prevented by early institutional care,early registration for pregnancy care and institutional delivery.

Why Kids Are Such Cold Magnets
On average, kids under age 3 catch six to eight colds a year. "We think that since most children are encountering viruses for the first time, their immune systems aren't able to kill them as quickly as when they encounter them again. What's more, because kids aren't overly concerned about having a runny nose, the virus tends to end up on their hands, clothing, and toys--where it can live for 30 minutes. When another child touches an infected toy and then rubs her nose or eyes, she can catch the cold.

However, having lots of sniffles early in life may protect kids later on. Researchers have found that children who develop frequent colds in preschool catch fewer colds during their school years--presumably because their immune systems have learned to recognize and fight off the bugs. And a German study has found that babies who have more than one cold before their first birthday are less likely to develop asthma by age 7.

My 2 year old son frequent cough n cold. But is active.What are the signs to Chek allergies or asthma ?

MRCP (UK), DNB, MD
Pulmonologist, Mumbai
Dear, Need to get some details. Is he also having fever, loss of appetite or weight? Any family history of allergy like runny nose, eczema etc? Asthma is a genetic disease. And clinical examination and history are the best diagnostic tools. It can also be treated easily and help your son lead a normal childhood.

Are you a parent to a rebellious teenage child? It is the most worrying and trying time in a parents life. From drugs, sex, alcohol, school expulsions to running away, exam failure...it's a nightmare for many parents. The reality is that rebellion is essential and is an expression of freedom and independence and an indication of psychological development. The teens are testing and developing new skills and testing your tolerance power. Its a period of forming their own beliefs and values, which parents will do well to respect and create an environment where there is open communication and space to make mistakes and learn from there. In counselling, parents also develop a better understanding of the developmental needs of their children and how they can start giving charge to the teens as they become more responsible and accountable for their actions.

Hi Dr. I am 31 years old female. One month before I lost my son during delivery as it was preterm labor and true knot. There is fibroids in posterior side equal to egg size my Dr. said I got preterm labor due to this egg size fibroid. Now she has given me medicine named fibristal 5 mg. Before starting to take this medicine just wanted to know whether this medicine can cure my egg size fibroids. please advice.

The egg size fibroid will become much smaller as your uterus size normalises to pre-pregnancy level. Fibristal has temporary effect only, and fibroid size will start increasing if it is stopped. The main problem is that fibristal may prevent next pregnancy from coming. You have to stop it after 3-6 months, do ultrasound for fibroid size and location. If situated towards the outside of uterus it may not affect the pregnancy. If located towards the inside, and size 2 cm or more, it should be removed by laparoscopy or hysteroscopy before trying for pregnancy again. True knots have nothing to do with fibroids.

Why it's Important That Your Child's Diet is Calcium-Rich

Diploma in Paediatrics, MD (Physician)
Pediatrician, Gurgaon

Why it's important that your child's diet is calcium-rich

Calcium is an inevitable part of your child's diet. You cannot afford to skip it if you wish to maintain a healthy lifestyle for your child. It is recommended that children between the ages of 9 and 18 should get approximately 1300 milligrams of calcium every day. Calcium-rich diet is important for your child for a number of reasons.

Why calcium?

  • calcium helps in building strong bones and teeth for your child.
  • it is important in order to ensure proper functioning of your child's muscles and nerves.
  • calcium plays a vital role in the release of such hormones and enzymes in your child's body that convert the food he eats into energy.
  • it is also helpful in causing the blood to clot whenever your child gets bruised.
  • since your child is continuously growing, a calcium-rich diet ensures an adequate supply of resources that help him to develop new bones that are healthy and strong.
  • a calcium-rich diet is also essential as far as other bodily functions like muscle contraction, blood vessel constriction and relaxation are concerned.

What does lack of a calcium do to your child's body?

  • lack of calcium can cause bone diseases like osteoporosis in your girl child, thus exposing her to a greater risk of weakened bones and possibility of fractures.
  • if your child is a young kid and his diet lacks calcium or vitamin d, which absorbs calcium, he is exposed to the threats of the bone-softening disease called rickets. It can cause in him bowing of the legs, muscle pain and poor growth.
  • bones are living tissues that change constantly, old bones keep getting replaced by newer ones and a calcium-rich diet aids this procedure. Therefore without an adequate supply of calcium, this process would borrow minerals from existing bones, thus weakening them and exposing them to increased risks of fracture.
  • lack of calcium also increases risks of cardiovascular diseases, damaged gums, high blood pressure, ovarian and breast cancer and several other infirmities in your child in his later years.

consult.

You are passing through the age when sudden spurt height takes place. Now you must concentrate on your diet also which should include milk and well cooked in oil or ghee nourishing diet. Veg diet is more than sufficient to keep healthy. Take Vitamin D 60,000 units once in a month for 6 months + Calcium 1,000 mg daily.

5 Effects Of ADHD On Sex Life

5 Effects Of ADHD On Sex Life

ADHD, which stands for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, is a chronic brain condition that leads to difficulty in prolonging attention on to a single thing, impulsiveness and hyperactivity. Though it mostly affects children and teenagers, it often continues into adult life as well, and can pose serious issues in adult lives - specially in maintaining jobs and relationships.

Effects of ADHD on your sex life:

  • Impulsivity: If you are suffering from ADHD, it is highly probable that you are often very impulsive in nature - and are susceptible to taking a number of risky decisions, such as unprotected sex
  • Attention-deficit problems: Since your thoughts are often jumping from one thought to the other, you will find it very difficult to actually concentrate on any single job at hand. Since sex requires attention and use of judgment, distractions can prove to be detrimental to a healthy sex life.
  • Hyper-sexuality: This refers to the condition of an unnaturally high sex drive. It is basically caused by the stimulation of the brain by the release of endorphins during sexual arousal, which often leads to calmness and relaxes the restlessness that is otherwise so common to ADHD patients.
  • Hypo-sexuality: This is exact opposite of hypersexuality. This condition refers to an unnaturally low sex drive, where you may often lose all interest in sexual activity completely. Often, this is a product of ADHD itself, but it can also be attributed to being a side effect of a certain type of medication, especially anti-depressants. 
  • Other disorders: Women suffering from ADHD have been known to have difficulties in achieving orgasm, often in spite of prolonged sexual stimulation. Also, if you are suffering from ADHD, you may also tend to be hypersensitive - which implies, something that feels pleasurable to your partner, may be painful or irritating for you.

Suggested Treatments:

Certain suggested treatments for improving the sex lives of people suffering from ADHD are:

  • Including variety in sexual activity, such as different locations, positions etc.
  • Communication, which proves very beneficial in combating intimacy issues
  • Prioritize, and try to stay in the moment and not zone out, if you are suffering from ADHD disorders

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

It is not mentioned since howlong baby is crying at night, feeding habbit and day time activities. At6 months baby require more than breast feed. This time for adding semi solids/ solids in his diet. If there is gap of more than 2-3 hours of feeding before 9 pm, give him suitable diet before 9 and last diet about 3 hours thereafter. If it doesn't work, Pls consult pediatrician.

Mild fever is the good effect of vaccine and passing stool can be infection. To control it, if you are giving bottle feed you have to stop and give breastmilk and other feed if you give at all, feed with a spoon.

Hello, Babies of this age group have very varied stools. It is absolutely normal for your baby to not pass any stools for even upto 5-6 days. Also passing stools till 10-12 times in a day is also normal. Just watch for any vomiting / blood in stools / recent change in stool consistency.
