3 months is too early to stop breastfeeding. We recommend at least till the age of 2 years. You should gradually introduce semisolids one after the other instead of dumping all at a time. Birth weight usually doubles by 5 months in otherwise normal children. You can still start breastfeeding. Milk starts secreting.

Some babies are born without testes which are not descended down. They're usually in the inguinal canal. Undescended testes usually descend to the scrotal sac by 1 year.

This information is of my son. Please help me in selecting a diet chart for him. He is 9 months old.
Home diet is the best diet for children upto 2 years or more. So just make him eat what you all eat at home except non vegetarian and spicy dishes.

Cough at night can be due to allergy and she needs allergy prevention by Levocet M syrup. Vomiting in cough due to straining abdomen by cough and cough need to be corrected for this. No separate treatment for vomiting.

First avoid all soaps and lotions. Avoid friction by not scrubbing it while bathing. Avoid powder, kazal on the face. Use plain water for cleansing. If irritation then calamine lotion can be applied.

7.2 kgs is alright for a 1.5 year old child. There is nothing to worry about her weight. Still you can give her a healthy and nutritious diet to ensure that she is having healthy mental and physical development. For this, give her egg yolks, curd, fruit shakes, besan cheela, chicken soup, fish, vegetables, prantha.

Common Problems in Children - Homeopathic Ways To To Deal With Them?

Common Problems in Children - Homeopathic Ways To To Deal With Them?

Children are constantly complaining of running noses and flus. This is part of their process of strengthening immunity and hence every child must go through this phase. Prescribing antibiotics every time a child sneezes worsens the situation by weakening their immunity. Hence, when it comes to children, homeopathy is an excellent form of treatment. Homeopathy can be prescribed to children of all ages.

Homeopathy addresses the physical, mental and emotional characteristics of a child and addresses the root of the problem. Though it has negligible side effects, apart from a few homeopathic medicines, it is always a good idea to consult a homeopathic practitioner before administering medicine to a child. Some homeopathic medicines that are commonly prescribed for children’s problems are:

  1. Aconite- This is used to treat the sudden onset of any illness or any illness in its early stages. Aconite is most often prescribed to treat flu and common colds. It can also be used to calm a child in case of sudden shock or fright.

  2. Arnica- Children are constantly falling and bruising themselves and arnica is the best first aid. Arnica can be ingested in pill form or applied topically in cream or gel form. It is useful for bruises, sore muscles, burns and black eyes but should never be applied topically over broken skin.

  3. Calcarea Carbonate- This is used to treat ear infections and colds that are a result of exposure to cold weather. It can also be used to treat babies who perspire excessively from their head and complain of heat and pulsating sensations in their ears.

  4. Chamomilla- This homeopathic remedy is ideal for restlessness, caused by teething, ear troubles, colic etc. It can also be used to treat bedwetting and diarrhoea. A cup of chamomile tea before going to bed can also help a child sleep well.

  5. Pulsatilla- This homeopathic remedy can be used to calm nervous and whiny children who alternate between extreme happiness and sadness. It is also efficient when it comes to treating ear aches that become worse at night and colds accompanied by yellow or yellow-green mucous discharge.

  6. Sulphur- Sulphur is used to treat earaches accompanied by perspiration and redness of the ears. It can also be used to treat skin problems such as scaly skin and acne eruptions. Irritable children who complain excessively after having a warm bath or getting out of a warm bed can also be calmed with sulphur.

Myth - Breast feeding spoils the Mother's figure

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Agra
Not at all! Breasts sag from obesity and lax muscle tone - not because of nursing a baby. To the contrary, the baby's sucking leads to the uterus contracting, which helps restore the belly to its normal position quite quickly. What you really need is a well fitting bra to give you support, with nursing flaps to allow your baby easy access to your breasts.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Practice "Enlightened selfishness" along with the children.
.
"Enlightened Selfishness" says Aristotle, "Is doing good to others. It is not duty, it is joy,for it increases your own health and happiness" Franklin Benjamin said the same thing in simple words " when you are good to others, you are best to yourself"
Why not do a good deed to other (as a parent) each passing day, so our children learn about Enlightened Selfishness. And what is a good deed? A good deed is one that brings smile of joy to the face of another.

My daughter had met with an accident at the age five had injured in righ side forehead, now she is nine years old, scar is now more visible looking odd, kindly suggest a remedy for this? Is plastic surgery is advisable?

MCh - Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Hyderabad
The only solution for the scar is scar revision surgery. Usually scar revision is done in stages to improve the condition of the scar interspersed with creams, massages and sometimes lasers. You should understand that scars can be improved and made to look better and cannot be made to disappear.
