My four years old daughter has nose and chest congestion (with thick phlegm and wheezing sound) every now and then for last few months which is not letting her sleep properly in the night. I have been nebulising her from time to time. I've also been treating her with antibiotics but unable to get her rid of the infection permanently. Too worried about her as it is adversely affecting her overall growth. Kindly suggest effective remedy. Shall be grateful. Regards.

Hi the difference between pentavac (painful) and pentaxim (painless) one is regarding one of the component. (pertussis). But there is a slight advantage of painful over painless one. As it's just the second dose you can switch over the painful one. It has got it's own side effects. Thanks.

Raising your Children with High Self Esteem

Post Graduate Diploma in Pyschology

Raising your Children with High Self Esteem

Building your child’s confidence and self image is an important part of raising a child. Self image can be defined as a child’s view of himself and his strengths. If a child is comfortable with his self image, he will have confidence in himself. A foundation of self confidence is key to a child’s success in his adult life. In their childhood years, a parent is the main source of building a child’s self worth or self confidence. Here are a few ways you can develop your child’s self confidence.

1. Avoid negative self talk: Children learn by watching their parents. Hearing parents berate themselves will make children do the same. Talking badly about yourself can reinforce a low self esteem. Hence avoid talking negatively about yourself and stop your child from doing it as well. If your child talks negatively about himself, give him evidence to prove the opposite or give them meaningful compliments. Also avoid calling your child names to shame him as these are likely to stay ingrained in his mind.

2. Celebrate uniqueness: Don’t make your child feel like he has to live up to the standards set by siblings or peers. Further, do not pressurize them to fulfill your dreams. Recognize your child’s strengths and celebrate his unique abilities. Help them develop their talents and set their own standards for themselves.

3. Let your child make decisions: Empower your child by allowing them to make decisions about simple things like what game to play or what to eat for dinner. Make them feel that their views are valued and thus teach them to be an active member of the family.

4. Let them work things out for themselves: Spoon feeding your child makes things easier at the time, but in the long run can have a negative effect on their self confidence. Be patient and let your child try and do things for himself. As he meets and overcomes new challenges, his confidence will grow. Give your child age appropriate chores to do around the house. This helps build responsibility and a feeling of competency.

5. Be genuine about your praise: Children are highly intuitive and can tell the difference between sincere praise and something being said merely for the sake of it. For example, if your child has made a drawing, instead of simply telling your child that he is an artist in the making be more specific and praise his choice or colours or ability of colouring within the lines.

You can instead give freshly made curd before it turns sour. (within 2 hours of setting for curdling. Milk alone is not he best food, you ca give all home made healthy food.

My daughter is suffering with amleopia ie, lazy eyes, and is on treatment of putting patches on either eyes. But it was suggested that it should be worn for 6hrs but we r able to make her wear on for 4 hrs, because of different reasons. Plz let us know would it get rectified like this ever or she has to wear it for 6hrs. My daughter is 6 years old.

Pleas make sure she uses the patch for the number of hours required. It is only at this age that amblyopia can be treated. Once she reaches teens , it will be almost impossible to do anything about it. You can make it seem like a game if she does not use the patch. All the family members can also wear a patch, so that she feels it is like a game.

Suvarnprashan - A Boon For Children's Immunity!

Suvarnprashan - A Boon For Children's Immunity!

Immunity building or having good immunity is the prime need of parents for children of today's generation. Due to hectic lifestyles, inadequate nutrition, exposure to pollution and physical and mental stress children easily fall prey to recurrent infections. It takes a toll on both their physical, mental health and development leading to absence from school for longer durations.

Common health issues faced by children:

  1. Lack of concentration and memory.

  2. Loss of appetite

  3. Irritability

  4. Infections like chronic cough and cold, influenza, digestive problems taking place in a recurrent manner.

  5. Recurrent allergies

  6. Physical and mental stress

  7. Headaches and lack of sleep

Recurrent use of higher doses of medicines makes their immunity further weak and they get caught in the vicious circle of illness and medicine.

Is there any answer to the above problems?  Definitely yes - It is Suvarnaprashan!

What is Suvarnprashan?

Suvarnprashan refers to a unique Ayurvedic remedy, which has been clinically tested and proven to give a boost in immunity and intellect among children. This is usually given to children who are aged between 0-16 years in the form of drops.

Benefits

There are numerous benefits of Suvarnprashan, which help children to lead a healthy and productive life.

  1. It helps to increase immunity

  2. It assists in the promotion of good physical and mental health.

  3. Improves digestion and physical strength.

  4. Intake of Suvarnprashan helps to improve attention span among children, their memory along with the ability to learn.

  5. Irritability, temper tantrums, attention deficits, and psychosomatic problems 

  6. Prevents recurrent infections

  7. Helpful in children who have delayed milestones of growth

  8. Helps to stimulate a child’s overall development If given regularly, Suvarnaprashan prevents the occurrence of recurrent diseases in children by boosting their physical & mental immunity which is the need of the hour as we all would agree to the fact that  ‘Prevention is better than cure’.

Hi.

As we will be purchasing all baby products like ...
God bless her long, happy and healthy life. There is no need for any special purchase. No need of shampoo, cream etc. sponging specially of folded areas as arm pit etc is sufficient up to 1 month of age. Do not go for any specific brand. Select yourself with your own skill. Exclussive Breast feed up to 6 months of age is best food.
