My baby born with 2.5 kgs. Please guide me how to put on his weight. Wat diet my wife has to follow.
If your baby is 6months old you should introduce semisolid diet like khichdi, dal rice, mashed potato, mashed fruits, thick milkshakes, soups, fresh fruit juices, vegetable pulao everything in semisolid consistency. Do not force feed your child. Continue mother's milk. Mother has to take nutritious diet, milk and milk products, paneer, sprouts, fruits, balanced diet, all leafy vegetables. Have food and feed your child with a very relaxed mind. See your child growing happily.

Febrile seizures-A nightmare

MBBS
General Physician, Hyderabad
Febrile seizures-A nightmare
FACTS:
1.Most febrile seizures occur in the first few hours of a fever, during the initial rise in body temperature.It occurs usually in children in age groups 3mths -5-6yrs.
2.Most febrile seizures last only a few minutes and are accompanied by a fever above 101°F (38.3°C). Although they can be frightening for parents, brief febrile seizures (less than 15 minutes) do not cause any long-term health problems.
3.Having a febrile seizure does not mean a child has epilepsy.
4Children at highest risk for recurrence are those who have:

their first febrile seizure at a young age (younger than 18 months)
a family history of febrile seizures
a febrile seizure as the first sign of an illness
a relatively low temperature increases with their first febrile seizure

What should be done in case of febrile seizure:

>Note the start time of the seizure. If the seizure lasts longer than 5 minutes, call an ambulance.
> The child should be taken immediately to the nearest medical facility for diagnosis and treatment.
>Call an ambulance if the seizure is less than 5 minutes but the child does not seem to be recovering quickly.
>Gradually place the child on a protected surface such as the floor or ground to prevent accidental injury. Do not restrain or hold a child during a convulsion.
>Position the child on his or her side or stomach to prevent choking. When possible, gently remove any objects from the child’s mouth. Nothing should ever be placed in the child's mouth during a convulsion. These objects can obstruct the child's airway and make breathing difficult.
>Seek immediate medical attention if this is the child’s first febrile seizure and take the child to the doctor once the seizure has ended to check for the cause of the fever. This is especially urgent if the child shows sym.ptoms of stiff neck, extreme lethargy, or abundant vomiting, which may be signs of meningitis, an infection over the brain surface.

Hello doctor, Please tell me any medicine to control bed wetting for my two year children.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Hello doctor, Please tell me any medicine to control bed wetting for my two year children.
Bed wetting in small children not only required medicines but a proper management is also required from your side.In order to control bed wetting problem of your child you must have proper knowledge of the exact reason of this problem. Actually normally a normal human being can retain urine in his bladder even for hours even if bladder is full because our mind controls the opening of Bladder valve.But sometimes this control breaks due to some reasons in elderly like old age,Uterine prolapse or displacement in females,Diabetes to name a few.But in small school going children it is a common problem and in majority of cases in children while sleeping the contact between their mind and bladder is broken and this is the reason why children cant feel their bedwetting problem even after urinating and continue with their sleep.There are a number of factors which leads to this problem but the main being Worms ,Excessive cold,Weak nervous system due to which whenever bladder fill slightly with urine,it exerts pressure on the valvular opening and while sleeping their mind-bladder control is not working,slight pressure on valve make it open and urine passes out without knowledge of the child.In some children this can happen while they are awake also. So our main aim while treating is to 1.set up a control betweem Mind and bladder 2.Try to remove all the causative factors 3.Try to make pass the urine of the child before hand time to time during the day so that there is no urine left in bladder so that no pressure is exerted on U.bladder valve. 4.Start giving medicines which will set up a contact between Mind and Bladder valve. 5.To start Pelvic Floor Muscles Stregthening exercises called KEGELS EXERCISE in teenage children and Mature people as small children cant do these exercises. Homoeopathic treatment R-74 Drops ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops in 1 spoon fresh water 3 times daily ENUROSAN or BOOUME 42 ( BIOFORCE) Drink 1 spoon twice daily Before starting the above 2 medicines first give below given medicine for 5 days and start the above medicines from 6th day D-WORM ( ADVEN) Drink 1 spoon twice daily for 5 days.Finish the bottle. Repeat the above medicines for 3 months. Management by Parents during this course 1.Stop all fluids at night 2 hours before sleep like water,milk,and fluids of all kind including liquid vegetables. 2.For first 45 days set up an alarm in the middle of night 30 minutes before when you think that the probability of your child urinating during sleep at that particular time is high.Make this time adjustments in next few days and void urine of your child at that time to relieve Bladder valve from pressure.It is difficult but you have to do it for your child. 3.See that your child doesnot put on weight by letting him eat fatty food and cold drinks.

Please consult your doctor again and update him on your son's health. He might change the medicines or reduce the dose. You also have the option of changing your doctor. These medications usually come with many side effects. I suggest that you do your own research, read up and educate yourself and take an informed decision. The health of your son could be because of this medicine or something in his diet or the seasonal changes. Though allopathy medicines bring faster relief, they come with numerous side effects. On the other hand, ayurveda and homeopathy are gentler on the mind and body and fewer side effects and sometimes slow to show improvement. Nevertheless, you are doing a wonderful job as a parent and taking care of your son. Take care.

Hi, if you have already introduced liquid diet (like'dal ka paani'chawal ka paani') earlier then you can introduce semi-solid diet like'sooji ka hawla'ragi'khichri' mashed fruits (like apple, banana, papaya) initially later can switch over to oats, veggies, etc.

Normal home cooked food without spices in semi solid form should be given in routine. Emphasize on green vegetables. You can add jaggery. Pomegranate juice will help for more iron (if actually needed. Supplement may be given.

Is painless vaccines safe for a child? please tell.

MD
Pediatrician,
1. There is nothing like painless vaccine. 2. Every vaccine is associated with some pain 3. Whatever there is available in market for human use is made available only after it has gone through three phases of trials (animal + human voulenteers) the forth phase of trial is post sale survays. 4. Please get your child vaccinated immeditely. 5. A little pain will go in few minutes or a day but if the child got the disease it would be more painful for the child and for the family.

That you r considering phlegm may not be phlegm. It may be collection of saliva in throat which vibrates and sounds due to breathing which is normal at this age. In diseased chest congestion, baby can not be active n feed properly. Coughing may be due to irritation of throat by so called phlegm. Baby swallow it now n then.

I think what he has is umbilical hernia. Can you tell how big it is and if possible send a photo. If small, it should go as muscles become stronger. Or else surgical closure is the treatment.
