Hello, he is just below the ideal weight, he could increase in height. But a few kg increase with the increase in height wouldn't do any harm. Also there is no need to worry about the height, the rate of growth of each child is different. Do give him foods rich in calcium, like milk, expose his skin to direct sun light for 30 minutes, everyday, between 11: 00 am-3: 00 pm to get the vitamin d. This would help build the strength of the bones and help grow. Make sure the diet has enough protein which is essential for growth.

Hi Sir, After which month baby started walking by her own or without the support.
Every child's growth pattern is different. Usually babies start taking their first step between 9 and 12 months. Initially they will take no more than 1 or 2 steps while taking support. They start walking independently while that are 14 or 15 months old. But some children even take longer till 16 - 17 month.

Please make sure you see a child specialist in the area. Picking up on a phrase and prescribing medicines to a young child is quite dangerous. There could be several issues including worms, behavioral issues, stomach infection etc which need to be ruled out. While I can help over an online appointment, my honest advice in case of a 4 year old child would be to consult a pediatrician in your city.

Why Sleep is Important For Kids' Health?

Why Sleep is Important For Kids' Health?

If the children do not get sufficient amount of sleep at night, then their health will start getting deteriorated slowly. According to the medical surveys, it has been discovered that kids need much more sleep than adults. 

It is pretty impossible to maintain kids' health without proper sleep at night. The kids will get tired soon and will lack in energy because of poor sleep. 

Why sleep is important for kids' health? 

-  Growth promotion: Growth process might get retarded as a result of less hours of sleep. If the kids 
stop growing, then their health cannot be maintained. 
-  Proper weight maintenance: If the kids lack in proper sleep, then their weight might get decreased slowly. A good sleep of at least 10 hours a day is necessary for maintaining weight of children so that great health can be acquired. 

-  Boosting internal energy: More energy will be generated so that daily activities can be performed with ease. The stamina level of kids can also be boosted as well. 

-  Growing improved bed-time habits: Bed-time habits can be properly scheduled with good sleep. If the sleep routine is not properly maintained, then the health condition of the kids will be adversely affected. Sleep can be audited properly, and your kids can grow fast. 

-  Promotes learning process: The kids can get an improved learning process by means of having good amount of sleep. If you want to make your kids learn new things or habits, then for that sufficient sleep during the night is needed. 

-  Increase in attention and concentration: Mental strength of kids can be increased along with the increase in concentration and attention level. This is very much essential for maintaining studies and daily activities. 

-  Reduction of injury risk: Immunity system of kids can be boosted to a great extent with proper sleep as a result of which the risks of physical and mental injuries can be reduced. In fact, severe kinds of heart diseases can also be prevented by means of having a good sleep at night. 

Sleeping schedules for kids
-  Pre-schoolers need almost 10-13 hours of sleep.
-  For newborns, 14-17 hours sleep is appropriate.
-  Infants need a sleep for almost 12-15 hours.
-  Young adults are in need of at least 7-9 hours of sleep.
-  Teenagers need 8-10 hours night-time sleep.
-  For school-going kids, 9-11 hours sleep is needed.

Asperger's Syndrome: How to Deal With Your Loved Ones?

Asperger's Syndrome: How to Deal With Your Loved Ones?

Asperger's Syndrome or Asperger's Disorder is a neurotypical condition that affects the development of the child the effects of which continue into adulthood. This condition typically shows up as difficulties faced by the patient when it comes to social interactions as well as other nonverbal means of communication. It should not be confused with autism as the patient has no speech and cognitive development delay. 

Asperger's syndrome can show up as restricted and repetitive patterns in the behaviour of the patient. It lies at the higher end of the autism spectrum and the signs are usually less obvious.

Here are a few ways with which you can effectively deal with someone who is suffering from this disorder:

  1. Routine: The patient suffering from this condition will need a certain kind of stability as it is very difficult to predict what will happen in the near future or to even plan for it. The best way to tackle this scenario is with the help of a proper routine that can help the patient achieve some kind of control over the situation surrounding him or her so that he or she is better equipped and more capable of handling normal functioning and social situations as well.
  2. Information: It is also a good idea to help these patients in looking at and in processing information. While normal people may easily be able to discard insignificant or unimportant information, the brain of the patient suffering from asperger's syndrome does not allow him or her to do so. In many cases, the patient is not able to filter the important and the unimportant information. This can debilitate many functions. So, it is important to be present to help the patient in making decisions and processing information that is actually relevant to his or her functioning.
  3. Learning: One of the most crucial things to remember with the Asperger's patient is that they tend to understand and process things when they have a visual presentation rather than being told verbally. So showing them things practically in the proper manner is the right way to help them learn and process situations in a correct way. This will prevent them from doing things in the same old way even when their brains tell them that it will lead to wrong results.
  4. Physical Abilities: Poor motor skills as well as lack of proper organisation skills are traits that usually characterise these patients. It is important to make them aware of this during games and activities that require management as well as use of social skills. For example, football and other such activities can be introduced in the routine. This will promote interaction with the team in order to play and enjoy the game.

Why little water comes out of kids mouth While sleeping. Is it because of a stomach full.

Why little water comes out of kids mouth While sleeping. Is it because of a stomach full.
A peaceful and generally content baby who foams at the mouth in her sleep should not raise alarm bells. This could be for few of the reason. 1. Baby may be taking in too much food too quickly or not not having been burped properly. You can try reducing the amount of food given to the baby and ensure a good long burping time. 2. Your baby may have reflux. Some amount of undigested milk remains in the stomach, which would give a reflux action.

In my 2.5 year old daughter body structure I noticed that her whole body is skinny but her stomach is elevated. I have visited a pediatrician he advised that it may be due to wheat allergy and advised ttg test and also tsh test for thyroid and reports are negative in both the tests where ttg is 7.87 and tsh is 3.19 ,then he told it may be due to vitamin deficiency so he prescribed some tonics and vitamin d and calcium syrup and advise to come after a week but I don't want to visit him again as I am not satisfied with his prescription and need expert opinion.

Hi, A child’s stomach changes position naturally as they grow. When they are infants, as well as during the early portion of toddlerhood. Sometimes, a toddler has a relatively large liver compared to the rest of their body. This will take up more space in there, and it will add to the fat belly appearance until they grow into this important organ. Or could also be a bloating problem. Watch for any discomfort that coincides with the exaggerated belly. This could be the result of constipation or some type of food intolerance. Children who are lactose intolerant will experience diarrhea and cramps in addition to the bloating. In this case the excessive protrusion will appear flatter within a couple of weeks. They could also be experiencing a bloating problem. Watch for any discomfort that coincides with the exaggerated belly. This could be the result of constipation or some type of food intolerance. Children who are lactose intolerant will experience diarrhea and cramps in addition to the bloating. You can always have the pediatrician take a look if for no other reason than to calm your own nerves.

Hi, Many delays aren’t serious, and most kids can catch up, especially when they get early treatment. The key is to get your child the help he needs as soon as you think there’s a problem. A delay in speaking can happen for many reasons, including: Problems with a child’s tongue or the roof of his mouth, which makes it hard to form sounds and words Hearing loss. Kids who’ve had a lot of ear infections can have hearing problems. A learning disability A developmental disorder, such as cerebral palsy or autism spectrum disorder If you think your child has a problem with his speech or language, let his doctor know right away. The doctor will need to test his hearing. She’ll probably also suggest that your child see a professional who can diagnose and treat these delays, called a speech-language pathologist or speech therapist.
