At the age of 7 height and weight of my son is much below from minimum required. We give him Buffalo milk, protein biscuits, banana, dates on daily basis. He also go for karate practice in evening daily. His sonography regarding internal body function is normal. He do not eat much as required at this stage. Please guide us to increase his body growth.

MD Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Hyderabad
Body growth depends on many factors, mainly genetic and hereditary, so need not worry as long as child is active and playful. Its too early to expect fast growth as different individuals have different growth patterns. Just see that he does not bear heavy weights on his shoulders. Regular exercises for height gain will be helpful and sports like gymnasts and basket ball would help in body growth.

My daughter is 6 years old she has night bed wetting problem please tell me remedy.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
Bed wetting can persist in some children for a long time. You have to make changes in her routine. There should be atleast 2-3 hour gap between dinner and bedtime. Do not give any fluids before bedtime. Time when she wets the bed (it usually occurs at a more or less fixed time after sleep), then wake her up just before that time to go the toilet. These simple steps usually help. Follow them and wait.

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.

Febrile convulsion means convulsions because of fever. You need to consult a good child neurologist for assessment and EEG

My child of 6 years is not putting on weight for the last 3 years or so. His appetite is ok but suffers from allergy and respiratory problems from time to time . He is active however but will like him to add some kilos .

Pediatrician, Muzaffarnagar
Average weight of child at 6 year is about 20 kg. If your son is around of this you need not to worry since he is active. You may increase some oily and protein in diet. Otherwise it is better to leave him on his own choice of nutritious diet. If he is suffering respiratory problem, consult doctor who after assessing his problem, he may advise if respiratory problem is to do any thing with his weight gain.

There is no role of growth hormone in achondroplasia unless associated with growth hormone deficiency. Please do not get misled that growth hormone shall accelerate the height of short stature due to achondroplasia.

It is a behaviour disorder and self limiting. Behavour modification and positive reinforcement by award is important by proper counseling and communication. There is nothing to worry about. DO NOT SCOLD THE CHILD. TALK TO HIM REGARDING HEALTH HAZARDS AND AWARD HIM FOR COMPLIANCE. BEST WISHES

Hi my 2 year baby could not eat what can I do.

Pediatrician,
nothing to be done if his weight is OK for his age , if giving more than 3 cups of milk / day - restrict it , milk itself will suppress appetite
