My baby girl cries so often for past few days and is having poor feeding. She is teething fast. please advice.
Reason of cry appears to be hunger. Give her frequent feed. If you feel cry is due to teething, apply oracep or zytee gum paint. Else you may consult pediatrician.

What is nasal pholips? how immunity and strength can be increased? my nephew is 10 years old, for past 5 years he quite often suffers from cold and cough continued with fever. Even a glass of cold water, results in tonsils and cold with fever. 1-2 hours of outdoor play makes him dull, he feels weekness and thus falls ill. Exertion results in illness.

MD PULMONARY, DTCD

It all due to nasal polyps. They can recur even after surgery. A good nasopharyngeal hygiene can help with good nutritious diet. Try ennhale nasal spray 1 spray each nostril/day with telekast f 1tab/day with break. Can consult ent specialists.

Do not use your teeth for doing something other than chewing food. Using them for cracking nuts, removing bottle tops or ripping open packaging can result in chipped or broken teeth.

My child is getting cold always in winter but why it is for child not for elders?

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Varanasi
My child is getting cold always in winter but why it is for child not for elders?
Resistance through an airway is inversally proportional to fourth power of radius (Bernoullie's principle). Children has narrow airway which make it more susceptible for wheezing. Also the immunity at extremes of ages is less making them both children and old aged people more susceptible for infections.

I gave breastfeed to my kid till 2 years but now I stop giving him. From last 3-4 days I felt pain in my left side of breast. I can't lie upside down on my bed while sleeping.

Oncologist, Delhi
Though you have done the right thing in stopping breast feeding, for how long now, have you stopped it. Milk production subsides gradually, and it may be because of the collection, that they may be full, swollen and hurting. Please be sure there is no redness and you are not running fever. These are signs of a breast abscess. You may get an ultrasound of the breast to be more sure of the problem.

My kid is 2 years old now and he is not able to speak, what is correct age to speak.

MASLP
Speech Therapist, Hyderabad
Around 1 year age children generally speak few simple words. Communication delays must be addressed at early ages for better results. Speech pathologist can guide you reg. Intensive speech language stimulation. Any neuro motor problems must be ruled out. Seek professional help if there is absolutely no speech development yet.

Except vitamin d. There is no need of any vitamin supplements in routine unless your doctor finds a deficiency of any1. Repeated cough cold could be a sign of allergy for which you shall undergo a detail check and it would not recover on it's own. So better to get behind it. Prevention - vaccinate against seasonal flu once the child is beyond 6 months age. Regards.

My 1 year old baby gets stomach cramp almost every night. Gripe water does gives little relief. What should I do?

My 1 year old baby gets stomach cramp almost every night. Gripe water does gives little relief. What should I do?
Stomach cramp is a common problem in the first years of child's life. There are other options available like anti flatulent and anti colic medicines. You should have them at home for emergencies such as late night. I recommend you to see a skilled homeopath nearby. You will get effective yet side effect free medicines. All the best.

What is disadvantage of drinking soy milk by babies?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
The pros & cons of soy milk for children you can find soy milk lining the shelves of most grocery stores. With a wide range of child-friendly flavors, such as vanilla and chocolate, this creamy dairy milk substitute can be appealing to kids of all ages. Some infant formulas are even made from soy. As with any food item, soy milk has several potential advantages and disadvantages for the children who drink it. Pros and cons: allergies millions of children throughout the united states suffer from some level of allergies related to cow's milk, warns the alabama cooperative extension system. The agency says that soy milk can be an ideal substitute as it doesn't contain the lactose protein that can cause kids such trouble. On the flip side, some children are allergic to soy products. Because food allergies can vary widely in terms of severity, consult your doctor if you have any concerns about your child's allergic reactions. Pros and cons: hormones research is inconclusive regarding the effect that soy milk and other soy products may have on a developing child's hormone levels, reports harvard medical school. Soy milk contains estrogen receptors that may mimic the effects of estrogen, and may affect cancer risks related to breast and prostate cancer. Harvard notes that there's yet to be sufficient evidence to avoid soy milk, and that cow's milk also contains hormones that may potentially be harmful.

Hi lybtrate user, it's too early to speak meaningful words for this age, even if baby is speaking some words like baba, mama. It is normal.

Pls lybrate doctors, suggest some milk and gluten free baby food both liquid and solid.

Pediatrician,

Breast and dairy milk is good and are gluten free. Avoid gluten containing product like wheat, rye, barley, and all their products. Gluten free products are fruit, vegetables, nuts, rice, beans and legumes. Gluten free diet can be well prepared at home. I do not prefer branded product so I do not name of market product. Pls check in the market.

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.

Ocassional vomiting at late night may occur either over eating late in night or going to bed immediately after meal. Some children are prone to cold with change of climate. Since she is now 4.5 years, prematurity is nothing to do. I am sorry, i can not advise Homeo since i am Allopathic pediatrician.
