My son is 15 months old. For the last one week he has developed a habit of getting irritated at anything for most of the times in a day and he keeps screeching. Also, he has started avoiding eatables and is not at all interested in taking food by any means. Is it normal in this period of infancy or he needs some kind of extra efforts from us. Please advise. Thanks,

Hi, as he is 15mths old, keep a check on his teeth as may be new tooth or teeth are about to erupt and he is undergoing slight pain and irritation on that area. It's normal for a kid who is having dentition, and without any major cause becomes irritable. Give him your love and affection, ask him what thing is making him like this. Give him food which contains more calcium like milk, milk products, green leafy veggies, if you are non-veg. Then chicken and fish can be given. Medication: homoeopathic schwabe's biocombination 21/ 2 tablets 3 times a day daily for 4 months. Revert.

It is more harmful to keep her in heated room 24 hours. U may use heater when she is in room but take care not to expose to cold suddenly. Encourage exposure to sun and proper clothing.

It is unlawful and unethical to prescribe medicine without examining the patient. Please consult a doctor. You can search internet for galactogogues but if you want to try try on your own risk!

Most often it's viral infection. Fever usually settles down in 3 to 4 days. Cough takes 7 to 10 days. Continue same treatment. Small children get frequent infections because of low immunity.

Babies need complementary solid foods along with breastmilk after the age of six months. You can start by including curd, fruits like banana, mashed papaya, veggies like mashed potatoes. The food that you give to your baby should preferably be home cooked and should have a thick, soft consistency.

All About Child Bedwetting

Bedwetting, also known as Nocturnal Enuresis, can be referred to as the unintended and involuntary urination during sleep. Enuresis, being a medical term, stands for wetting, whether during the day in full clothing or at night in bed. For young children and infants, urination is certainly involuntary. It is worth note that children who wet their beds are not actually being disobedient or lazy.

Child Bedwetting can be classified into two types- Primary and Secondary

Primary Bedwetting

It has been continuing since the phase of early childhood without a halt; which means the child bed-wets every night.

Causes:

  1. The child is unable to hold urine over the length of the night.

  2. The child cannot wake up in case his or her bladder is almost full..

  3. The child has been taught poor toilet habits as he/she puts off urinating for hours during the day.

Secondary Bedwetting

Secondary bedwetting can be an indication of a repressed medical or emotional condition.

Causes:

  1. Infection of the urinary tract can cause irritation and pain along with a strong urge to urinate.

  2. People suffering from diabetes need to urinate frequently.

  3. Any injury or abnormality of the nervous system can take a toll on the neurological balance that fundamentally controls urination

  4. A peculiarity in the muscles or other organs that are involved in urination can be the reason behind bedwetting.

How to address the problem of bedwetting?

  1. Motivational Therapy: This involves parents motivating their children to reinforce their sense of self-control over bed-wetting.

  2. Moisture alarms that can detect wetness in the child’s trousers while sleeping and sound an alarm bell to wake the child up.

  3. Tricyclic anti-depressants that lower the amount of urine produced by the kidney.

It seems child is not given toilet. I would advise you to be patience and start teaching him now. Daily morning he must be given a glass ful of lukewarm water. Visit to toilet. Give him green veggie food as fibers in food help in motion. Do not scold him and nor irritate him. By the way how he is at school.

Hello doctors, my daughter is just entered her teens. She was very understanding and disciplined but off late she has become arrogant, rude, lazy and gets irritated and frustrated very soon. She started to even reply back rudely to her grandparents and parents. Can you help and suggest to bring her back like she was.

Pediatrician, Rewa
This teen age behaviour is very difficult to understand, have patience, be considerate and avoid head on collisions. Become her friend.
