Your child's doctor ,peadiatrician might have suggested you some powder milk avilable in market. There's no harm in giving powder milk to babies. Even its just 14 days of delivery gradually milk secretions of your wife may increase or your wife's doctor may prescribe her. In food items moong dal, coconut, methi, jeera, til, milk etc might help in increases secretions. Mother should have light and easy digestible food. Wait for sometime if still your wife's milk secretions are not increasing, consult me further for homeopathic prescription.

I think your hubby can manage himself by your helping advice. Operation 2 months ago must not be hurdle now to look after baby n yourself. Feed your baby exclusive breast milk on her demand which you shall learn shortly on watching baby's cry gesture. I suppose gas problem shall be resolved. Minor gas discomfort is no problem.

Fresh, home cooked food with a soft, thick consistency is best for baby. Mashed bananas, papayas, pureed fruits and vegetables, khhichdi, dal, chapati soaked in dal and mashed would be good to give.

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

Just polyuria without any other symptoms and tests are all within normal limits you need not worry. This is a temporary phenomena which will be corrected by time. Sometimes polyuria can be due to phobia (school) scared of somebody, in cold weather etc. All this is temporary phenomena which will be corrected.

Sibling Rivalry - 10 Tips To Tackle It!

Sibling Rivalry - 10 Tips To Tackle It!

While siblings are the force that breathes life into any family structure, it has also been seen as a challenge of sorts to manage siblings and bring out the best in each one of them. In any family unit, there are a number of entities who need to be nurtured in a certain way to ensure that their identities are not hampered by a "one size fits all" style of parenting. Every child is different and will need to be handled differently. Besides this, there are other related challenges that will contribute to the quality of the relationships between the siblings, as well as the rivalry that they may feel towards each other when it comes to attention, achievements and varied other factors.

Read on to know the ten tips to tackle sibling rivalry:

  1. Make friends before birth - Encourage your first born to connect even before the birth of the new baby by including him or her in the changes you see and feel. Planning for the new baby with your first born will also help in such cases.
  2. Staying positive is a big factor that will help the children in feeling confident despite their different qualities and strengths.
  3. Comparison is a big no no - Stay away from these kind of comparisons so that the children do not feel like they have to fight with each other for your praise.
  4. Time sharing - Ensure that you divide your time well and indulge each child in his or her area of interest so that they feel like you are always there for each of them.
  5. Harmonious start to the day - This will ensure that the children have a special bond at the end of the day. Make sure that they help each other and divide chores accordingly. The older siblings should be given the care giving tasks while the younger ones should be taught to obey them and play along.
  6. Humour them - It is a known fact that humour is the best medicine that breaks even the most tension filled atmosphere.
  7. Family meetings - Hold family meetings to discuss important things and even intense fights so that everyone's needs and issues are addressed.
  8. Empathy - Teaching your child to empathize with others will help him or her steer clear of needless rivalry at home too.
  9. Ignore the small - Let them figure out the smaller fights, yet always be there to address the bigger issues so that they know you are there for them.
  10. Equal treatment - Treating them equally does not mean doing the same thing for each of them. It means giving them equal time and attention with personalized treatment to suit varied temperaments. This will also give them a lot of individual confidence which eventually kills any feelings of rivalry. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

Hello lybrate-user. Stargardt is one of the most common macular dystrophy wherein the gene responsible for removal of toxic metabolites is absent which results in accumulation of lipofuschin leading to damage to photoreceptors which are responsible for vision. Currently, there is no treatment for the disease. Wearing sunglasses and hats outdoors and blue-light blocking glasses when exposed to artificial light sources reduces the buildup of lipofuscin. Use of low vision aid also helps. Antioxidats, isotretinoin, gene therapy are all in the experimental stage for treatment modality. I would recommend you to see a ocular geneticist for any recent research update and for genetic counselling.
