This is her growing age. She require more energy protein dense food and special diets then adults. Energy protein dense soft food is preferred. Khichadi with ghee, banana mango chiku, boil potato with butter, egg white, boil vegetables with butter is preferred. She need a proper diet schedule.

My son is 4 year old and many time he is suffering blood from nose. Last night my son suffering blood from nose around 4 a. M around 15 drops of blood so after some time stop blood after he lay down straight. But in morning around 8 a. M again blood come from nose. Please explain what is the reason and solution for it.

The most common cause of bleeding from nose in the warm environment is drying of nasal mucosa and picking of the nose. Teach him to avoid nose prick,give plenty of fluids.Pinch the nose for few minutes when it starts bleeding and put nasal decongestant drop 4-6 times a day for 4-5 days. Regards

Consult your child doctor. Baby of 3 months does urine 7 -8 times a day but potty may be 4-5 times is ok but 8 -9 times is slightly on the higher side. Does he take outside food to eat or is only on mother's milk? If ony on mother's milk, check what you eat. Avoid heavy meals and also avoid heavy dinners. Check with doctor.

I suggest taking your son to pediatric practitioner and get him thoroughly checked. Most probably he is having urinary infection. We need to get urine culture done for the same and satrt antibiotics.

This is indeed a big worrisome infection. This happens with viral infection of the lungs and eventually turns up in a syndrome called ards. Where ecmo was needed. Ecmo removal is success but still stormy days aren't over. Pray to god. Hopefully it shall be fine.

Better to screen for bronchitis or asthma --> wait for 3 more days and then also doesn't reduce then get" peak flow metry" done at pediatrician's clinic and know the response of bronchodilator medicines in form of nebulisation, I think it would cure the problem. But has to assessed by a certified pediatrician not by your own.

My 1 year old baby gets stomach cramp almost every night. Gripe water does gives little relief. What should I do?
Stomach cramp is a common problem in the first years of child's life. There are other options available like anti flatulent and anti colic medicines. You should have them at home for emergencies such as late night. I recommend you to see a skilled homeopath nearby. You will get effective yet side effect free medicines. All the best.

If it's due to fever needs intermittent prophylaxis at the time of fever. If seizures are due to some cause, it has to be rectified. If cause is not known needs longterm anti epileptic therapy.

My relative has a 14 year old boy. He is suffering from urine fall on bed in night. Kindly resolve the problem.

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician, Faridabad
Firstly urine r/e to be done to find out any evidence of infection. If urine examination is alright then see nearly at what time child passes urine on bed. Try to ask him to pass urine about half an hour before. In that way he will develop gradual bladder control. Pt. Need psychological support also. He is not to be felt let down if happens to pass urine on bed. Rather make him assure that nothing has happened wrong, you will be alright if you follow the above given advice. If still problem is not solved then medicines are to be given-like adiuretin nasal spray as per advice from doctor.

Hello lybrate-user, yes it is worth worry that your child is not gaining weight and height. You should go for pediatric check up and moniter your child on groeth chart. There are many causes of it like hypothyroidism, familial short strature, pitutary linked problem etc. All will be cleared once you got regarding test done. Observe mental ansd social development and his learning and understanding skills.

There are a few reasons why this happens to kids/babies. The more common reason would be that the baby is full of milk, especially when so small and young, they burp and it comes up and exits the nose and mouth. The nose and throat are connected and in such a tiny being they are even closer together leading to this being much more common than you would expect. Unless your child is constantly doing it and it clearly causes pain, not to be confused with discomfort, I wouldn't be too worried about it...

Maybe burping is not proper. You should burp the baby properly for at least 10 minutes after every feed. If baby is gaining weight adequately, there should be no serious issue. If no improvement, consult your doctor at the earliest.

Almost anything is considered normal when it comes to your periods while breastfeeding. All women experience a time of postpartum bleeding following birth which is not considered a menstrual period. If bottle-feeding, most mothers will have their first real period not long after this. Breastfeeding, however, suppresses menstruation at least for a while. For some mothers, there may be an absence of menstruation for weeks, months, and even years while still breastfeeding.

Hi, You can start cow's milk slowly and see how your children respond to it - whether they are able to digest it well or not. If not, you can dilute it a little, boil it and cool it and then feed your children. Also consult your gynae doctor.
