I requested you to suggest a good treatment for my daughter age 3 years she is not interested to take any food his weight is 9.8 kg.

Your daughter is underweight. She needs a good nutritious diet to help her in physical and mental growth. Be creative. Make her food look interesting, colourful. You can cut paranthas, sandwiches in interesting shapes n serve with jam/ green chutney/ salsa/cucumber raita etc. Involve her in grocery n fruit/ veg shopping. Tell her what you r buying and why shd we eat it. Make meal times a family affair. Let the whole family sit together, serve the food nicely and involve her in setting up the table etc. You can add vegs to khicdi/ dalia/ upma or make veg soup/ tikkis/idlis / paranthas. Dals / chanas can b sprouted and given as colourful tasty salad. Fruits can be served as shakes/ smoothies/ custard/ pies etc. Give her a variety of foods n flavours. Do not give her junk food or aerated drinks bcos they r addictive n very poor in nutritional value. You can give her homoeopathic alfalfa tonic (paediatric)/1 tsp/ twice a day 30 minutes before meals for 10 days. Bringing up children is a task that requires a lot of skill and patience. All the best.

Hello. Sorry to hear about your health ailment. You need to be specific in which type of hepatitis virus you are infected with .If its A or D or E you can definitely breastfeed. If its B virus then also you can breastfeed since child must be vaccinated against that virus by now. So don't worry and continue breastfeefing.

How to control your aggressive children

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology, Positive Psychiatry and Mental Health
Psychologist, Palakkad
There are times when even the most docile children appear to have the aggressive tendencies of a professional wrestler. While a certain amount of pushing and shoving is to be expected from all children, especially when they are very young, there are a few for whom aggression becomes a way of coping with almost any situation.

These overly aggressive children are not bullies; they often get into fights with people who are stronger than they are. They face problems not because they are aggressive, but because they become aggressive at times that are inappropriate and in ways that are self-defeating. They routinely argue with teachers and wind up in far more than their share of schoolyard scraps.

In some cases, this pattern of easily triggered aggression appears to be rooted in the children’s developing nervous systems. They appear to be physiologically unable to control their impulses as much as other children their age. For others, it is often a matter of needing to learn and practice social skills.

Aggression is one of the first responses to frustration that a baby learns. Grabbing, biting, hitting, and pushing are especially common before children develop the verbal skills that allow them to talk in a sophisticated way about what they want and how they feel.

Coping with a Very Aggressive Child

It’s difficult for adults not to attribute malicious motives to children who consistently appear to be trying to drive their parents and teachers to distraction. Often it’s equally difficult for parents not to assume that children are behaving this way because of something the parents have done wrong or have forgotten to do right. Such casting of blame, however, is not only inaccurate but usually useless as well.

The first step in helping an overly aggressive child is to look for patterns in what triggers the assaults, especially if the child is a toddler or preschooler. The aggression may happen only at home or only in public places. It may occur mostly in the afternoon or when the child is frustrated. Also, most of these children go through a predictable sequence of behaviors before they lose control. It’s a bit like watching a car going through a normal acceleration and then suddenly kicking into overdrive.

Once you can determine the most common triggers and can spot the escalating behavior, the simplest thing is to remove the child from that environment before he loses control. Take him away from the sandbox or the playgroup for a minute or two until he regains his composure. As the child develops, he will become less frustrated and, therefore, less aggressive because he has a wider variety of ways to respond to a challenging situation.

It’s also very useful to provide these aggressive and distractible children with a lot of structure and routine in their daily lives since predictability helps children remain calm and in control. Tempting as it may be at the time, spanking these children for being aggressive often does more harm than good. It is simply modeling the very thing you don’t want children to do. It teaches them that big people hit when they’re angry or upset, and that is precisely the aggressive child’s problem.

For older children and adolescents, teaching new and more appropriate ways of getting what they want can be very helpful. These children often have not learned the skills that their classmates picked up years earlier. As with bullies, formal assertiveness training can be particularly helpful to overly aggressive children since they have difficulty distinguishing between assertiveness and aggression.

It’s also useful to help these children look at life from a slightly different perspective. Psychologists have found that both aggressive children and their parents tend to focus on what’s wrong with a situation rather than what’s right with it. That makes their respective problems all the more frustrating for each of them, since neither pays any attention to the children’s improvement when it occurs.

I am a mother of 8 month old daughter. I still didn't know what food to give to increase my baby's immunity and weight. Please suggest any food chart to increase my baby weight and immunity for healthy life?

Dear lybrate-user, I hope that you are still feeding your baby with your breastmilk. After the baby is six months of age, along with breast milk, please add well mashed boiled vegetables, fruits like banana and cereals like rice and dalia. Start with one item and 4/5 tsf of food and increase the quantity as accepted. Number of feeds can be increased every week till the baby is taking 3 big meals of half of a 200 to 250 ml bowl. By 7 to 8 months of ageDo not add sugar or salt to the food. It is preferable and healthier to give freshly cooked home food rather than use processed tinned food sold ready to use. By the time the baby is 10 to 12 months he can eat all food that the family eats provided it is evenly mashed and soft as baby's grinding teeth have not yet erupted. HAPPY FEEDING!

Do you breast feed him if not give your baby pure cows milk without adding water in it, if not feasible then give any infant formula 1 according to the instructions printed on its box.

For running nose put saline nasal drops frequently into each nostril. Cough for such a long duration might need evaluation.

Sometimes excess crying causes acid reflux, you do not have to worry if your baby is active and eating properly.

My 5 months old baby poop inside have some blood and breastfeeding only. What happened to my baby?

My 5 months old baby poop inside have some blood and breastfeeding only. What happened to my baby?
Suggestion: When a breastfed baby has a bowel movement after nearly every feeding during the first few weeks, it's a good sign – it means he's getting plenty of milk. Formula-fed babies often have bowel movements less frequently than breastfed babies. But it's normal for them to poop after every feeding as well.
