Turn balancing into a game. Sit with Baby on the floor and help her stand up. Then count how long he can stay up before he tumbles. Give him praise after each attempt. It may take a few stumbles and series of steps before he is on the move. Continue to praise Baby as he starts to explore walking.

Shaving may help you. But, proper nutrition is essential for hair growth. Give him multi vitamin and iron supplements. Add date syrup instead of sugar in milk. Apply coconut oil daily to the hair.

While any medicine can be poisonous to a child if taken under the wrong circumstances, the following types are particularly dangerous: Heart medications: If a child ingests these, it can cause his (or her) heart rate and blood pressure to drop to dangerously low levels. This can result in the child going into shock and lead to cardiac arrest. Pain relievers: Over the counter and prescription pain medications are one of the leading causes of fatal child poisonings, and stats from 2010 show they caused 31% of deaths from poisoning in children younger than 5 years. Antidepressants: Those medications that make the patient feel better do just the opposite to a young child who ingests them. As the second-highest cause of poisoning in children under 6, it seems patients aren’t doing enough to keep their medications out of reach. Antidepressants, allergy pills and sedatives combined accounted for 17% of fatal child poisonings. Diabetes preparations: As diabetes becomes more prevalent the drugs are being prescribed more often. These medications can also be harmful to young children. Over-the-counter medicines: Many seemingly innocuous medications are responsible for a surprisingly high rate of child poisonings. Products such as muscle rubs containing camphor or wintergreen, eye drops and nasal sprays have the ability to cause seizures, coma and other reactions in toddlers and young children. Saying that your child just took one tablet of registerone and assuming he is okay, meaning he did not vommit, no truoble passing stool or urine and is active, there is nothing to worry. But to prevent such incidents form happening in future keep all medications out of reach of children and make sure to give your child lots of water to flush out his system.

Sir, external injury to forehead is much important with respect to injury inside the cranium and not externally to forehead. External injury may be treated with application of soframycin if trivial. Main concern is brain injury. Watch for symptoms such as vomiting, convulsions, unconsciousness after fall. If any of these are visible, visit pediatrician 24-48 hours observation may be needed. Anyway it is worthwhile getting clinically examined by pediatrician, child's health is of paramount importantance.

It is difficult to tell how much this lotion is useful for the condition! I suppose whole body skin is not dry. If it is so consult either pediatrician or skin specialist. Otherwise you may use white petroleum jelly ie vasiline.

Hello my son is 2 years old and his weight is 8. 5kgs I am veg I don' t want to give him any non veg food not even eggs but many people around me suggest me to give eggs so could you tell me it is really help me or is there any equivalent food for high protein?

Pediatrician, Pune
Exclusive vegetarian diet causes vit b12 deficiency leading to anemia, developmental problems, occasional egg given does not cause any harm, but if you still want to give exclusively vegetarian diet, then soya bean, dal rajma, ground nuts are good sources of protein, see that the child gets sufficient amount of these nutrients.

Height depends on genetic & envoirnmental factors. Longterm steroid administration may lead to stunting. You only have little chance of increase in height now.

Hhv-5 usually do not produce any symptom to normal individual but in people with Immune compromised condition, it may cause fever, fatigue, muscle aches, rash, sore throat, enlarged lymph nodes, and malaise. I suppose, she has no such symptom as yet. Get in touch with virologist.

These kind a drinks cut of age is 2 years. We don't these heavy protein load drinks before 2 years. Secondly you have plenty of drinks which are home made. Like kheer. Raab. Rabdi. Apple milk shake. Etc which would give you similar advantage. Alas in cost effective way! ;)

If your wife was fully vaccinated against rabies 1 year ago, she is fully protected against rabies and not required other course for about 5 years when booster dose of rabies vaccine is needed. Precautionary single dose of anti rabies vaccine rabipur can be taken.

Teething may be the cause behind his biting problem. Start giving him some crunchy food like piece of apple or some teething toy. Give him every home made food which you eat seeing you eating will help him to pick eating habit.

4 Excellent Ways to Break Your Child's Addiction to Sweets

4 Excellent Ways to Break Your Child's Addiction to Sweets

If your child has become increasingly addicted to sweets and other sugary items, this addiction can lead to certain behavioral problems (like mood swings, irritability, anger, etc) in children. Moreover, a high sugar intake can lead to your child falling prey to serious diseases and conditions, including diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular diseases. 

Here's what you can do to break your child's indulgent habits and wean him from ill-health causing culprits like cakes, ice creams, candies, chocolates and rich and creamy desserts etc.

1. Practice what you preach -
In order to develop healthy eating habits in your child, it is imperative for you as a parent to lead by example. When it comes to weaning your child from sugary foods and sweets, you yourself should limit your intake. So, if you tell your child to avoid sweets but love sweets yourself, you'd be setting a bad example by eating them yourself and not letting your child have them. The best thing to do is to be a role model to your child as children learn everything from their parents. 

2. Curb consumption of sugar by deferring intake to a later date -
Instead of depriving your child completely, it would prove to be more useful to tell them that they could have sweets on some other day. This is because if you deny him his indulgence, your child would invariably go on an eating spree the moment an opportunity arises. A study on a group of restrained eaters and non-diet individuals revealed that restrained eaters were found to consume more food than the non-dieting individuals. Not knowing when they could have their favourite foods again, they went on an eating spree.
Make frequent yet small offerings of sweets while explaining to him the importance of moderation and why he/she shouldn't overindulge but space out sugar intake.

3. Try the 90/10 rule - 
Teaching older children the 90/10 principle is another sure-shot way of breaking your child?'s addiction to sweets. The rule calls for 90% of the diet to be made up of healthy food with the remaining 10% being devoted to foods your child wants to indulge in such as junk food, sweets or foods with high sugar content. The total calorie intake that arises from consumption of about 10% or 1-2 fun foods is only about 100-200 calories everyday. 

4. Present your child with healthy alternatives to sugary items -
The next time your child wants to indulge in his sugar craving, instead of giving a processed sugary food, give healthier sweet foods like dates, honey or a fresh sweet fruit.
