Appears to be umbilical hernia. Normally this disappears with age, say about 2 tears. No medicine is required for it. If it becomes red and swollen, does not reduce on pressing, may need surgery at that time.

Bed wetting is called enuresis. It could be due to the immature bladder which cause her to do it in bed without letting her know. I would advise you to go for homoeopathic treatment. It gives best results in bed wetting.

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician

Nothing major, in terms of side effects or increased health risks, has been found for taking medications to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD There are no long-term studies assessing these meds in people who have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. Almost all of the data on stimulants comes from patients who have been diagnosed with narcolepsy -- a genetically based sleep disorder that causes excessive sleepiness and frequent daytime sleep attacks. Narcoleptics take mild stimulants daily to treat their condition, often for decades. There have been no reported problems.Anyone who is concerned about medication safety should remember the risks of non-treatment. Untreated ADD/ADHD adversely affects a person's life in many ways. Those with ADD/ADHD who don’t take medication have a significant increase in auto accidents, drug abuse, unplanned pregnancy, and job loss.They also are more likely to separate and/or divorce compared with those who take medication.

My Son is 8 months old. I am concerned about his diet. Kindly suggest what should be introduced to his diet now.

Insist for home made food 3 times a day. Explain her importance of food in simple words with examples. Do not accept any undue demands for junk food. Formula food like pediasure will not help her. Having meals together is a good idea.

You can first form a routine of eating with other members. This happens mortally with pampering our children. Then increase the quantity of food gradually. You can try cypon syrup one spoon twice a day. It have sedative property so start the drug in evening or on holidays. No driving.

My son Jeremy is 14 months old and his fontanelle has still not closed. What can I do? He has also not started to walk.

My son Jeremy is 14 months old and his fontanelle has still not closed. What can I do? He has also not started to walk.
The Anterior fontanelle (AF) is simply an area on top of a baby’s head where the various bony plates that make up the skull have not yet come together. The fact that a newborn’s skull isn’t one solid bone at birth, but rather comprised of several bony plates is not just useful, but necessary, as it allows a newborn’s head to adjust enough in size to pass through the birth canal and then allow the skull to expand as babies’ brains grow considerably throughout the first year.------------AF is generally between 3 to 6 centimeters diameter during the first 6 months of life, and gradually gets smaller thereafter—closing some time between the ages of 10 and 25 months old. Any babies who are born prematurely, however, may have their anterior fontanelles close even later. -------So your question is of little concern right now and nothing to worry about-----------------------

My grand daughter 5 & 1/2 months old has suddenly developed disinterest towards her bottled milk feeds. Her weight is 6.30 kgs. She is being given nestle man pro 1. Her regular intake was approx 130 to 140 ml 5 to 6 times a day, but she could take only 2 feeds of 130 ml each & 4 feeds of 80 ml in last 24 hours. Some sort of irritation is also a new kind of development, in her otherwise pleasant mood. She is not being breastfed. Her birth weight was 1.680 kgs only. Kindly suggest appropriate treatment/ directions.

It is ok if child takes little less feeds for 3-4 days, if she is playful and active. Irritability can be because of hot weather. We need to know her corrected age for her prematurity so as to know if weight is normal.

You need to worry and et the child evaluated if the child has persistant vomiting after falling from bed. If it was a single episode and if child is active, need not worry. It might be just a coincidence.

Nocturnal enuresis is more common in female pt. Initially we try alarm therapy. Never annoy with your children. Encourage her for going to toilet. Help her to wake up two times in night. If not responding to alarm therapy then write me.

If height & weight of your child are within normal limits, he does not need any medication. More important is training child for right feeding practices with patience, love & good coomunication.
