I have a one year old grand -daughter, but she has not started walking yet ! . She is apparently , quite normal , very active but when we lift her we can feel that her bones are quite flexible, rather delicate. Unlike other children who have supple , firm bones . We have afforded her the best diet that is possible . What can be the reason?

Not walking by one year of age is not too late. Some children will have little delayed milestones. In one to two months he will start walking if not with physiotherapy it will be get corrected. Do not compare with other children. Nothing like hard or soft bones will be there.

Hello, Bhindi is high in fiber but carries plenty of slimy fluid, too causing loose motion with spasmodic cramp. Give your baby plenty of water to hydrate her body to eliminate toxins. Give homoeopathic medicine:@ Aloe sac 30-4 pills, thrice. Report after 3 days, please. Tk, care.

Food Intolerance in Children - 5 Reasons Behind it

Food Intolerance in Children - 5 Reasons Behind it

Sometimes, during consumption of certain food items many children get itchy throat, eyes, ears, asthma, sneezing, rashes, diarrhea and eczema. This can be due to food intolerance in children. It is a form of allergic disease in children. Every 1 out of 10 children suffer from food intolerance. These days, food allergies are becoming more and more common in children who are allergic to nuts, milk and eggs. In some cases it can also be life threatening. This condition is known as anaphylaxis. Milk and egg allergies are more common throughout the world.

Symptoms of food intolerance:

  1. Bloating

  2. Your bowels start becoming irritable.

  3. Stomach starts to ache.

  4. Cough and cold is a common symptom.

  5. Itchy skin rash

Causes of food intolerance in children:

  1. There are enzymes in your body, which help you to digest the food you consume. Some enzymes in your body are insufficient; which further causes food intolerance in children. For instance, lactose intolerance causes spasms, stomach aches, diarrhea and so on so forth.

  2. Food intolerance can also be caused due to chemicals, such as chemicals present in coffee, tea, cheese and chocolates.

  3. Some food products can also cause food intolerance such as undercooked beans containing aflatoxins can cause extreme stomach infections in children.

  4. Some children are also intolerant to certain food products which have salicylates such as majority of fruits, vegetables, herbs and also additives. Processed food contains a high amount of salicylates.

  5. Children can be allergic to antioxidants like artificial food coloring, artificial flavoring and preservatives.

What to do if you think your child has food intolerance?

  1. Take your child for a skin prick test. In this test, the skin is pricked with a thin needle and when the blood oozes out, supplements of different food products are put in that area. If that particular area becomes reddish and begins to itch, your child has allergy to that certain food product

  2. A blood test should be done. It verifies the level of lgE present in your blood and finds out if your child is suffering from food intolerance or not. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

If the fever subsides by itself, signify viral illness. 15 episode of self limiting viral illness may be considered normal in this age. Although we have to rule out other cause as well like bacterial and occult infection like urine infection etc. General measures include scheduled vaccination, proper hygiene, plenty of water and fruits. Weight is low normal as per age. If oral thrush, pharyngitis occurs then periodic fevers like PFAFA syndrome must be ruled out.

Please suggest something.
Growth in child results in usage of all nutritive elements. We are a nutritionally deprived nation. Vegetarian diet may also promote this. Hygiene and nutrition go hand in hand. I would have done this for my child. Ensure at least one if not two eggs a day. Please check for egg allergy. ALSO ensure multivitamins and frequent alpha 1A protein intake. Deworming would be required if suggested by doctor. Alpha 1 protection is animal protein. In case you are upset of now eating that please take multivitamins syrup and some supplement for extra protein in market. Fish chicken and egg are good for growth. I hope this is good enough for you.

Lactose Intolerance in Kids

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Jaipur
Lactose Intolerance in Kids

Lactose intolerance is a condition wherein you are not able to digest lactose, which is a sugar found in milk. Other foods that contain lactose include cheese and ice-cream. Inadequate production of the lactase enzyme in children causes lactose intolerance. This enzyme is produced in the intestine that helps in the digestion of lactose.

Lactose intolerance is often confused with milk intolerance. The symptoms are similar but they do not share the same cause. Milk allergy is an adverse reaction towards milk and it is a problem of the immune system, whereas lactose intolerance involves the digestive system.

Symptoms:

The symptoms of lactose intolerance are:

  1. Bloating; on consumption of milk over a period of time

  2. Diarrhea is also very common

  3. Stomach pain

  4. Nausea

Diagnosis:

  1. It is self -diagnosable; just strike out foods containing lactose from your child’s diet and see if the symptoms get better with time. If the symptoms happen to fade away gradually, then it certainly must’ve been lactose intolerance.

  2. However, it can be tricky as many non-dairy products also contain lactose.

  3. If the child is lactose intolerant, then he/she might have to undergo a lactose breath test. This is used to test the levels of hydrogen in the child’s breath after the child consumes a lactose solution. Usually, hydrogen levels are low in one’s breath. However, if the lactose solution is not digested properly, then it will lead to a temporary increase in the levels of hydrogen in the breath, thus indicating lactose intolerance.

Treatment:

This disorder does not have a cure; so in case your child has lactose intolerance, you need to adjust his/her diet accordingly. Over-the-counter lactase is also available that helps in digesting lactose based foods. You can also go for the ‘lactose- free’ milk variety for your child.

Your son is perfectly normal and growing accordingly. His weight is also normal according to his age. Do not worry about his weight any more. Now the weight gain will be slow but they will be active and keep learning things fast and if they are healthy you need not worry. Keep feeding him with regular diet.

Do not stop breast feeding. Your child is absolutely normal and does not require any medication. This condition is called breast milk diarrhea. This is very normal that child who is on exclusive breast feeding may pass 10 times motion per day. You need to consult your pediatrician only when there is blood in stool. If your child is alert active playful accepting mothers milk and gaining weight 20 to 30 gms a day you need not worry about. Please continue exclusive mothers milk for first 6 months. No medical intervention is required. Best wishes.

I have tried for induce lactation and I have started milking within 12 days but now I don't get the milk after pumping but baby continues sucking is getting milk from me or its just habit that she continues she sucks for hour also want to know What is the reason I can not see milk on pumping but baby get that if my breast are producing milk.

Babies keep sucking because they get a sense of security. But if she is not getting enough milk, she would be crying. So most likely she is getting just enough milk to make her hold on. You must be getting her weight checked once in a while. Her health should not suffer. You can try to increase your milk by taking certain medicines and food. If you are interested, you contact me.

I am working woman. I have a 3-month old son. I will be starting work in a week. Until now, I am exclusively breastfeeding my child but will need to introduce formula feed when I start going to work. Please suggest the best formula for my baby.

Pediatrician, Pune
Breast milk is the best, there is no better alternative, if your work place is close by you can take a break every 3 - 4 hrs and feed the baby in between, if the work place has facilities to keep babies, that woul also be better, if these options are not available, you can express the breast milk before going to work, that can be stored in fridge and can be fed to the baby when you are away, expressing breast milk will you to continue secreting and forming more milk required for the baby atleast till 1 year of age, breast milk is the best for baby, second alternatives would be lactogen/ nan1
