My son is 2 year old, he is not trying to stanup by his own from sitting to standing position. He can walk and sit properly. Also nit speaking too many words, 3-4 words he speaks. Actually we never tried to learn him words. We consulted with Pediatric. He suggested blood test CPK and Vitamin D. His CPK is under control at 86 and Vitamin D is 14.6 which is insufficient. Our next appointment with Dr. is next week. He said first he will check the blood report and than suggest for MRI. From the blood test can MRI avoided. He said it may be muscle problem. Pl advise. Thanks.

Abnormalities in muscle tone and power. Following are the possibilities: Hypertonia: cerebral palsy, which affects about 1 in 400 children in the UK.[3]Delayed walking may be the first presentation in milder cases (hemiplegia, spastic diplegia). Muscular dystrophy: it is common to find a history of delayed walking in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) but less so in Becker's muscular dystrophy, as it has a later onset. DMD is the most common hereditary neuromuscular disease and it is progressive. Baby boys are often normal at birth and delayed walking may only be identified retrospectively, with symptoms really appearing between 4 and 6 years of age. Hypotonia of any cause - eg, Down's syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, Tay-Sachs disease, Williams' syndrome and so on.

My child is 5 year old. He did not ask for potty. He did not want to hold pencil. He did not write in his studies but he learn quickly. He did not react quickly in any matter. What should I do for my child?

Encourage your child to play with other children of His age. You could use music-based CDs for learning which will enhance his willingness to express verbally. Also physical play and physical exercises will make him more confident to write.

How to encourage healthy eating habits in your toddler

How to encourage healthy eating habits in your toddler

Whether you have a toddler or a teen, I believe, five of the best strategies to improve nutrition and encourage smart eating habits in kids would be :

1. Have regular family meals.

2. Serve a variety of healthy foods and snacks.

3. Be a role model by eating healthy yourself.

4. Avoid battles over food.

5. Make eating a playtime and probably a way of spending quality time with your kids.involve them in the process.

Kids who take part in regular family meals are also:

- more likely to eat fruits, vegetables, and grains

- less likely to snack on unhealthy foods

- less likely to smoke, use marijuana, or drink alcohol

 

You could Follow these basic guidelines:

1. Work fruits and vegetables into the daily routine, aiming for the goal of at least five servings a day.

2. Make it easy for kids to choose healthy snacks by keeping fruits and vegetables on hand and ready to eat. Other good snacks include low-fat yogurt, peanut butter and celery, or whole-grain crackers.

3. Serve lean meats and other good sources of protein, such as fish, eggs, beans, soya, tofu.

4. Choose whole-grain breads and cereals so kids get more fiber.

5. Limit fat intake by avoiding fried foods and choosing healthier cooking methods, such as broiling, grilling, roasting, and steaming. Choose low-fat or nonfat dairy products.

6. Limit fast food and low-nutrient snacks, such as chips and candy. But don't completely ban favorite snacks from your home. Instead, make them "once-in-a-while" foods, so kids don't feel deprived.

7. Limit sugary drinks, such as soda and fruit-flavored drinks. Serve water and low-fat milk instead.

And above all ----- Be a Role Model Yourself!

The best way for you to encourage healthy eating is to eat well yourself.!!!!

That's all for now, for my next dose(article) ...stay tuned!

Loose motions immediately after feeds are normal in newborn called gastrocolic reflex. If the baby is in nicu, there must be a reason for the baby to be in nicu, talk to your treating doctor.
