My daughter is 2yrs 3mths old. How to stop her breastfeeding.

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), DNB (Pediatrics)
Pediatrician,
Hi welcome to lybrate stopping breastfeeding will be a tough especially at 2 yrs n more. First start with day. Give her something to eat when she wants to breastfeed. Distract her when she demands breastfeed you may have to bear with her tantrums when you refuse breastfeeding her. Have patience and it will take few weeks to completely stop breastfeeding.

Video Games and Neurological Problems Associated with Them

Video Games and Neurological Problems Associated with Them

Your mother has often yelled at you for playing video games for long hours but obviously you haven’t paid heed to it. Such is the obsession with video games that they don’t let you rest unless you have championed all the levels in the virtual interface. Here is the source of all problems. Studies have revealed that video games have a direct relation to neurological disorders. As a result, many health experts across the world consider video game as a kind of health abuse.

People who play action-oriented video games are at higher risks. The more you indulge in these kinds of games, the more they are going to affect the hippocampus section of your brain. It is that part of the brain which is considered to be the centre of your nervous system, memory, and emotion. This has a detrimental effect on your overall brain health.

Let us see some of the signs which may indicate the onset of certain complications arising from an over indulgence in these games.
1. You spend hours on the computer or related gaming devices and devote lesser hours for your family and friends.
2. You get agitated when someone stops you midway through the game
3. You become socially isolated and show signs of occasional mood swings
4. You are unable to keep a track of time once you start playing
5. You repeatedly neglect your studies, resulting in a dip in performance at school

Why does this happen?
All of the above signs indicate that sooner or later you might develop neurological problems. When you spend an excessive number of hours on playing and navigating through the games, the ‘hippocampus’ portion of your brain shows signs of decreased gray matter. As a result, the volume of the hippocampus shrinks, causing severe nerve related disorders such as schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, depression, and overall general stress.

One of the biggest reasons behind this is a lack of self-control. Most of the video games will encourage you to steal cars, run away after a theft and kill your enemies. Moreover, if you succeed, you are rewarded. This naturally unleashes a blatant urge for the gratification of all these awkward desires in your real life too. Hence, once you are encountered with the reality, you tend to show violent behavior.

Recurrent vomitings will lead to weight loss. Stop bottle feeding if doing, antiemetic drops given 20 minutes before feed will help. Semisolid/solid diet to be preferred over liquid diet.

My son is 5 years old suffering with sneezing because of allergy how to get rid of that?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
The best way is to avoid the allergens if it is known. Allergens can be of various types like dust, pollens, smoke, foods etc. Long term use of some medication like montelukast with levocetrizine helps. Most of the children overcome this allergy as they grow till that time symptomatic treatment and avoidens of allergens is needed.

Weight usually triples by 1year. Accordingly it's normal. You can give any thing other than cow's milk and egg as they may cause allergy in some children.

Each child has its own sleep pattern and no two children are alike. Most of them never get sleep deprived and manage very well to get whatever sleep is required. I would not worry about his not sleeping in the day. They always compensate and get enough sleep unlike us adults who fight sleep because of work or studies and become sleep lagged.

Baby Bottle Caries In Bottle Fed Children

Baby Bottle Caries In Bottle Fed Children

What is baby bottle tooth caries?
 

Baby bottle tooth decay is caused by the frequent and long-term exposure of a child's teeth to liquids containing sugars. Among these liquids are milk, formula, fruit juice, sodas and other sweetened drinks.
The condition is associated with breastfed and bottle fed infants who have prolonged feeding habits or with children whose pacifiers are frequently dipped in honey, sugar or syrup. The sweet fluids left in the mouth while the infant is sleeping increase the chances of cavities.
 

Why should I be worried about baby bottle tooth decay?
 

Giving an infant a sugary drink at nap or nighttime is harmful because, during sleep, the flow of saliva decreases, allowing the sugary liquids to linger on the child's teeth for an extended period of time. If left untreated, decay can result, which can cause pain and infection. Severely decayed teeth may need to be extracted. If teeth are infected or lost too early due to baby bottle tooth decay, your child may develop poor eating habits, speech problems, crooked teeth and damaged adult teeth.

How can I prevent baby bottle tooth decay?
 

1. Never allow a child to fall asleep with a bottle containing milk, formula, juice or other sweetened liquids.
2. Clean and massage the baby's gums to help establish healthy teeth with a moistened gauze square or washcloth.
3. Brushing should begin upon eruption of the first baby tooth. When brushing a child's teeth, use a soft toothbrush and water.
4. Parents should first bring their child to the dentist when the child is between 6 and 12 months old for a checkup.
5. Decrease consumption of sugar, especially between meals.
6. Children should be weaned from the bottle as soon as they can drink from a cup, usually by their first birthday.

I am 33 years. I have given birth to a girl baby on december 30th with normal delivery. Still i am not able to feed my daughter with breast milk. I have tried all the steps to increase molk supply but not able to produce milk. Could anyone help me with this?

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), Pediatric Gastroenterology

Young Mothers always think that their milk is not sufficient. Don't be disheartened. The more you feed , the better will be the supply of breast milk. Drink a lot of water, eat nourishing food and continue taking iron and calcium supplements. If the baby is passing urine frequently and stool normally and gaing weight nicely, you can be sure that you are producing enough milk.

My son is 15 years old. He is suffering from lymphangioma by birth. Initially it was concentrated at upper lip. Cured by surgery. Now it has spread at right eye and there is bleeding at occ. Ational times with some swelling. Is there available an effective treatment for this disease in ayurveda or any other treatment

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
No medical care has been proven effective for lymphangiomas. Lymphangioma is not responsive to radiation therapy or steroids. However, propranolol represents a potential new option, which may be of benefit even for intractable diffuse lymphangiomatosis. Antibiotics are given for secondary cellulitis.
