If you are interested to give top milk, start with dairy milk n continue breastfeeding. Weaning time is also near by. Boiling is not related to time but to well boiling.

There could be 2 reason for a warm forehead. 1.) Child is suffering from any mild infection. Check for any symptoms: Low frequency of taking milk, change in stool color/ very smelly stool, If child is active / responds nicely. Low frequency/ yellow urine. 2.) When Child plays while keeping his legs up in air, shouts loudly , he creates pressure that raises the temp. of head. If child remains happy and feeds nicely, nothing to worry.

5 Priceless Gifts for Your Child this Children’s Day

5 Priceless Gifts for Your Child this Children’s Day
5 priceless gifts for your child this children’s day

On the occasion of Children’s Day this year, switch to smarter choices from entertaining toys and noisy video games as gifts for your kids. Enhance their lifestyle by making available gifts that involve constructive physical, cognitive or emotional skills. All you need to do is find the ideal gift for your little one that adds a smile on his face while teaching him something meaningful.

Maintain your own Calendar!

Gift #1- Most children like to know what day it is, how many days until a certain event, or even what the plan of the day is and so on. Some kids struggle with spur-of-the-moment plans. Gifting your little boy or girl their own month or annual planner will also make your world run smoothly. This enables them to write down their own classes, events, play dates or school days.
Benefit- A calendar would make your young one responsible enough to remember important dates and maintain his/her own schedule.

Challenging Games and Puzzles!

Gift #2- Kids love great indoor activities that pique their interests. Some are known to be constructive activities that teach your child a lot. Certain games help in strengthening mathematical skills in children like Monopoly and Payday. Memory or language games too help in adding value to your child’s mind. Rory’s Story Cubes and Q-bitz are challenging games that check and increase visual and creative skills.
Benefit- Games help in brain development and enhance problem solving skills. Puzzles increase creative and novel thinking that help in building your kid’s IQ.

Home-cooking Spree!

Gift #3- If your children enjoy eating or cooking food, they will love this gift. All you need to do is select an easy recipe of a yummy treat and purchase all the required ingredients. To make the event a special one, set a date and time for cooking together. Baking or cooking together with your child is an ideal time to share a beautiful bond while they learn life skills.
Benefit- This special home activity will surely instil culinary values. As a whole this process would also train them to work as team and follow procedures and steps carefully.

A Micro-Library for Kids

Gift #4- Reading is a habit that mostly develops at a younger age and it’s an essential if you want your child to have a strong hold over a language. Books with a message and stories with a deep-rooted moral go a long way in inspiring the young minds. Good reads with a positive layout for kids that you can opt for are “I Believe in Me” by Connie Bowen or “On My Way to a Happy Life” by Deepak Chopra.
Benefit- Books are teachers in itself as they impart knowledge. Good books develop spoken, written, creative and cognitive skills whilst teaching your kid perfect usage of the language.

Telling the Time

Gift #5- You can check whether or not your child knows how to read analog clocks in this age of digitalisation. If you find he/she takes too long to think about it you can think of getting them a cool analog watch with three hands. This makes them want to be able to tell time on it.
Benefit- Being on time is a wonderful thing. Train your kid to be punctual at his/her growing years by gifting them the perfect time-managing instrument.

My son is 5 years old now a days he is becoming more thin and ziddi he will not listen to my words also even if I beat also he will not listen I consulted a doctor but still same what to do please suggest.

BHMS, pgdcbm, MD(AM)
Homeopath, Gurgaon
Dear lybrate-user children of this age tend to become obstinate as they enter a new phase of life. From being the sole receiver of everyone's attention and love at home ,he now starts school where he has to compete with many other children. Some children develop sibling rivalry also .If you scold him or beat him for his behaviour, he will become more ziddi. It is important to handle the situation with lot of patience but firmness. Give him more time and attention ,play with him, read with him, make him his favourite food but do not unnecessarily agree to his irrational demands. Appreciate him with kind words or hugs whenever he exhibits a good behaviour. Please remember that punishment is not a good method of behaviour modification. It will only make him more ziddi. Be patient and gentle, he will improve his behaviour.

Hi sir

Sir, external injury to forehead is much important with respect to injury inside the cranium and not externally to forehead. External injury may be treated with application of soframycin if trivial. Main concern is brain injury. Watch for symptoms such as vomiting, convulsions, unconsciousness after fall. If any of these are visible, visit pediatrician 24-48 hours observation may be needed. Anyway it is worthwhile getting clinically examined by pediatrician, child's health is of paramount importantance.

Hello lybrate-user! sorry to hear that she is suffering from fever. Since generally in fever for kids they will not feel to eat or drink as their appetite will be low. So to say it is fever it should be more than 100.4 f. So start with some tapid sponging, this will help her to reduce the temperature. Give paracetamol. If her weight is around 13 kgs you can give syrup dolo 250mg/5ml, 3.5ml four times a day with a interval of 6 hours. Tender coconut water is best to keep her hydrated. Do not force her to drink too much of water at once. Make her to drink water sip by sip. Take care.

Sir my baby is 4 month old uskay neck pay kuch white little balls niklay plesae what is the reason ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Balls? or white patch? where exactly? if they are movable. They could be lymphnodes. But in 4 month old there is no chance unless he has some infection in the throat or on the skin. You need to give more details. Come to private consultation with all details.

Respected sir my kid who is now 5 and a half year old was detected with bilateral relfux. His treatment is going under local expert doctors. We are not satisfy with the results till now. The condition is getting worst day by day. His bilateral urinary replacement is done. Still with his latest report we found that he has protienosis +, acidosis +, high blood pressure, and serum creatinine is 1.1 mg. We are just so worried and cant think of something else than his health.

I would like to know whether reports are worsening or improving.What do you mean by bilateral urinary replacement(was ureterostomy done and if yes then when)?Also how severely the kidney is affected(was DMSA test done). Once the surgical decompression done the reflux decreases and the reports starts improving. Please attach the reports and provide details so that I better able to help you out. Regards

Neonatal hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver that occurs in early infancy, usually one to two months after birth. About 20 per cent of infants who develop neonatal hepatitis were infected with a virus causing inflammation of the liver either before birth through their mother, or shortly after birth. Viruses which can cause neonatal hepatitis in infants include cytomegalovirus, rubella (measles), and hepatitis A, B and C. In the remaining 80 per cent of affected infants, no specific cause can be identified, but many experts suspect a virus is to blame.There is no specific treatment for neonatal hepatitis. Vitamin supplements are usually prescribed and many infants are given medications which improve bile flow. Formulas containing fats more easily digested by the body are also given. It will take 2 months to cure fully
