Hello, If it's a birth mark, so wait for some more time as sometimes the mark gets lighten. We can slight make the mark little better, but can't remove the birth mark totally. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine - Lycopodium 30/ thrice a day for 20 days. Revert me back there after.

Mother should never be aggresive. Child should be given the time learn. Some children learn much earlier than others. If they do not eat keep then without eating. They will join other children and then come back to eat. Neither pampering nor aggressive.

We see some little drops of blood in his stool when he passes stool most of time. Dr. (Pediatrician) advised us to go surgeon for checking the cause of blood in stool. But our child is normal habitual, sleep well, no fever and only breastfeeding. So what is the cause of blood in his stool.

If the baby is breastfeeding exclusively and gaining weight and sleeping to the mother's satisfaction there does not seem to be a cause for worry.Please check if there is redness and cracks in the anal skin due to frequent rough cleaning.This may be a cause for blood in stool.If the baby is getting any topmilk,milk allergy can also manifest like this.

Probably she has adenoids or allergic rhinitis, due to this reason she is mouth breather. By this age her milk teeth must have fallen. Dentist must require to put braces, and at the same time meta sprey nasal sprey may be required. If there are adenoids then she may require surgery.

She is taking milk from bottle since birth. She was properly sucking the bottle's nipple. But as she turned 1. She started holding bottle by herself and slowly stopped sucking the bottle's nipple. Now the stage is. She holds the bottle for 1 hour in her mouth and doesn't drinks even 30 ml of milk from that bottle. How should I again train her to suck the nipple. Please help.

Bottle feeding is not advisable at any age. Stop bottle feed rather to train her for bottle feeding. She is 1 year old. She can drink milk from gilas (tumbler). I hope she must have started complementary solids in her diet.

There are many types of rashes which can only be differentiated by seeing and then advised accordingly. If some one or all in family has similar type of rashes, it may be scabies. Without confirming, no treatment can be suggested.

Dear Lynbrate user At 9months we usually have febrile seizures in children. At that time did he has fever the situation N now you have described is called Breath holding spells. When the child tries to hold his breath just pinch him or give a slap on back so that he stats breathing Give him Iron and Zinc supplements But let some Paediatrician see the attack so that it can be confirmed that it breath holding and not seizure.

It's called growing pain, many children keep complaining at night time. Apply some analgesic balm. If pain is more you can give paracetamol 250 mg at bedtime.

Can you recommend any tools that will help me stay motivated to stay on my eating plan? Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated?

A high-protein diet. Beans, cheese, eggs, meat, and nuts can be good sources of protein. Eat these kinds of foods in the morning and for after-school snacks. It may help improve concentration and possibly make ADHD medications work for longer. Fewer simple carbohydrates. Cut down on how many of these you eat: candy, corn syrup, honey, sugar, products made from white flour, white rice, and potatoes without the skins. More complex carbohydrates. These are the good guys. Load up on vegetables and some fruits, including oranges, tangerines, pears, grapefruit, apples, and kiwi. Eat this type of food in the evening and it may help you sleep. More omega-3 fatty acids. You can find these in tuna, salmon, and other cold-water white fish. Walnuts, Brazil nuts, and olive and canola oil are other foods with these in them. You could also take an omega-3 fatty acid supplement.

Looks abnormal. Pl compare with the birthweight of the child. If birthweight was 2.5-3.5 kg, then 9.2 at 7 mths is not good. Consult a paediatrician.

There is nothing serious to worry. He might sleep for a longer time. Wake him up in between and feed. And for a 19months baby actually 0.6 ml is very insufficient.
