Hello. I can understand how difficult it is to manage in such situations. Short lived diarrhoea is very common in children whenever a new food is introduced or the type of food is changed. If your baby is not lethargic, eating and drinking and playing, please do not worry. Offer her who-ors liberally. If any concerns, please see a paediatrician in-person for an assessment.

8 teeth are normal at this age. Decay can occur due to bottle feeding. If so you must stop it. Show to a pedodontist for early intervention.

Till then burp well and as people feel, the entire mik is not wasted .You monitor weight every month to make sure the growth is normal.

The rest usually comes off over the next several months. eat to loose weight at every 4 hour interval. DO NOT skip meals. ...Eat 5 to 6 small meals a day with healthy snacks in between (rather than 3 larger meals). Eat breakfast. ... Slow down. ... Choose nonfat milk and dairy products. .. .When you reach for a snack, choose fruits and vegetables. .. .Drink 8 or 9 cups of liquids a day. breast feeding reduces moms weight

Premature greying of hair is quiet common nowadays due to many reasons like heredity, diet, shampoo etc. If it's a single hair you can ignore it.

ADHD: Symptoms, Causes and Prevention

Adhd or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder refers to those psychological disorders, which significantly alter a child's behavior and considerably affects his or her relationships with others. This condition is seldom preceded by perceptible symptoms and even when they do, they are difficult to decipher. However some of them are:

1. Self-centered
Those children who suffer from the attention deficit hyperactivity syndrome tend to be encapsulated in their own subjectivity. Though this does seem harmless apparently, this tendency may lead them to be insensitive to other's needs and wants.

2. Emotional outbursts
Adhd makes children extremely susceptible to frequent emotional outbursts and makes them erratic.

3. Difficulty in concentration
Children who suffer from adhd face extreme difficulty in concentrating or focusing on things. Many a times they fail to repeat what was told to them.

There might be several causes which can contribute to the development of this disorder. Some of them are:

1. A drastic change in the child's lives
A sudden or a drastic change like the divorce of parents may severely affect the child and maim him emotionally. This may lead to the development of this disorder.

2. Depression
Though always associated with adults, depression can be and is common among children as well. In such instances, a consequent development of adhd is highly plausible.

3. Bipolar disorder
Bipolar disorder refers to excessive and incomprehensible mood swings. Many children suffer from it in their early lives, making them susceptible to adhd.

Notwithstanding the ambiguity and the erratic nature of the disorder, there might be preventive measures which parents might adopt to deter the outbreak of the disorder.

Some of them are:

1. Less use of preservatives
Parents must be careful about what their children eat. Those foods which contain a certain amount of preservatives tend to aggravate the disorder thereby causing more harm than good.

2. Consider alternative forms of medications
Another way of dealing with this problem is by exploring other forms of medications and not sticking to one form. In this respect, practicing yoga may be very beneficial.

Normal bladder control develops only after 6 years of age. So don't worry for now. - avoid sweet drinks or food or frequent water intake after 6 in the evening. -before going to bed and after 1-2 hours of sleep she should empty the bladder - don't scold child for wetting the bed. - bed wetting is seen in children having some fear. So always treat them with love. - if wetted, change the bed sheet without her knowledge. It will build her confidence which will help her to get rid of the problem. -get her blood tested for sugar and do her urine test also. Do not please panic, most of the times it comes normal.

This is normal dear. It is possible sometimes that by birth you have less fatty tissue insulation in hands. Where veins don't have that subcutaneous fat base which fixes the vein and allows less movement. But if it is not so than also is fine, it is not counted as any disease at all. So enjoy.
