Swallowing air is the most common reason for flatus. Try to give breast milk in sitting posture and do burping before you put on bed. If you are giving bottle feed, try to give with spoon. It solves your problem. Consult your pediatrician for learning art of burping.

You can go for investigations to rule out tuberculosis. Also the lympnodes might be enlarged due to local infection. A course of antibiotics if causes regression of size of lumps then tb is less likely. Also for primary complex (TB) the child must be having features of decreased appetite, weight loss, low grade fever, contact with person having TB or taking drug treatment for tuberculosis.

The tiny tots must use a toothbrush with a small rounded brush head and soft bristles. It helps in cleaning their milk teeth thoroughly.

My male baby 20 months old is having Craniosynostosis, having small head size. His overall activities are normal so far, he is not talking yet but only saying Mama, Papa, Didi, he walks/ runs normally. Please let me know if I have to take any extra precautions in order to make his future life to safer side.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Follow up with Paediatric neuro physician to know if intervention is needed. Probably you may not need anything as so far growth and development is normal. It (small size head) sometimes occurs in families with normal development.

4 Foods That Strengthen Your Child’s Teeth

4 Foods That Strengthen Your Child’s Teeth
4 Foods That Strengthen Your Child’s Teeth

Kids have a mind of their own when it comes to food. The unhealthier it is, the more they tend to like it. Most taste driven or sweet foods are harmful for your child’s oral hygiene. However not all foods that your children like to eat are as bad for their oral health, some even help strengthen their teeth.

Here are 4 foods that your children can have for healthy teeth and gums.

1) Sugarless Gum - It helps loosen plaque and increase the number of natural antibodies in the mouth. It also keeps the gums hydrated. While too much of anything is not good, these gums are good once in a while.

2) Crispy Vegetables - These might not be popular with children but can be made yummy with interesting dips to go with them. Raw carrots, celery, cauliflower, and green beans are chewing foods which clean the child's teeth and gums.

3) Natural Sugar - Sugar from milk, yoghurt and cheese are rich in vitamin D, phosphate and calcium. When consumed, they raise the pH level of the mouth which lowers the level of acids, hence reducing risk of tooth decay.

4) Vitamin C Rich Foods - Fruits like oranges, kiwis, strawberries, papayas and limes help kill bacteria that can cause gingivitis. They also aid a good supply of collagen in the child's gums. However, parents need to remember that one can eat citrus foods only after thirty minutes from brushing their teeth. This is because the citric acid in these foods can weaken the tooth enamel temporarily.

-drink plenty of fluids (veg/tomato soups, dal water/coconut water/herbal tea etc), and eat nutritious food (like sprouts). Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine -treatment: a cold usually lasts for a week or two. Gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. Take only lukewarm water to drink during the day -use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation. -tablet nasorest-p once/twice daily may ease breathing. -do steam inhalation once or twice daily.

Mera beta four year ka hai, aksar raat ko uske leg mei pain rahata hai, aur morning mei thik ho jata hai, dard puri raat rahti hai, maine doctor ko dikhaya to doctor ne calcium syrup diya, ab sirup band karne ke baad bhi kavi kavi leg me pain ho raha hai, aur, raat bhar massage karne pe bhi aram nahi milta, so please mujhe aisa medicine ya oil bataya jo fast relif kare raat mei aur bacha aram se soye paye, mai raat mei bajut pareshen ho jati hu.

App pehele to ye pata kar me ki bache ko leg me pain rahata hai ya koi air taklif hai. Agar calcium syrup dene me bad bhi bache me leg me pain rahata hai to bache ko calcium metabolism me taklif hai. Bacha calcium absorb nahi kar pa raha hai. App ek bar bache ki serum calcium karwa lo. Uske badme him bats sakte hai ki kya karan ho Santa hai.

Hi, Pls consult your paediatrician, don't do any home remedies or any online consultation, it's better to carry the baby to the doctor. Feed her breastmilk only and no to formula milk until unless milk production is low. Regards

Pediatrician,
Children up to 5 years get sick with changes in weather, but are fine after treatment. If it happens too frequent, will need to investigate. If possible post full reports, that will help to opine better.

For how many months can you can give bevon syrup to 3 years old child can it be continued for 6 months.

The usefulness of all multivitamin syrups is determined by the general health of the child and review of the dietary intake. If the child's weight and height for age is fine, general health is ok and diet is adequate and balanced, there is no need to supplement with multivitamin syrups.

My 4 years old son has a fever since 5 days also he had loose motions . As per doctor 's advice we have given him paracetamol syrup and antibiotics. But the fever is not yet controlled. It ranges between 99 °f to 100 °f. I am worried a lot. He is not eating anything and we forcefully give him liquid diet and boiled potatoes, rice etc.

Hi, I can understand your concern. We are getting many similar kids in our practice as well. A fever of up to 100 f is most likely due to viral infection, and should get better over the next few days. Do not try to force feed the baby, viral fever leads to low appetite in all of us as well. Please hire me if you need more tips, warm regards.

Multiple partners do increase the chance of spread of sexually transmitted diseases including aids. But condom minimizes the risk, so always use the condom.
