Crocin or ibuprofen plus suspension less than 5 ml at a time may reduce symptoms of pain and fever to some extent and temporarily. Problem looks like some infection connected with throat with lymphnode child may require appropriate antibiotics on advise of a doctor on direct examination and proper diagnosis.

What should I give as a food to my 8 month old son? And what shall I use in his body for this summer. He can't tolerate this summer. He likes to leave in cool temperature.

I saw your query regarding feeds to a baby 8 month old, first of all at 8 months old age, he's just trying to accommodate with a new environment as thermostatic centres in the brain are yet to develop so while feeding them you must concentrate on more and more liquid constitution of feeds than solid. Also try to maintain their hydration to avoid fluid deficit because of overheating. Expecting at this age you must have started weaning already, consider calorie requirement as per age along with hydration of the baby.

Before expecting results from medicines, you should check whether you are creating some obstacles in her feeding, like force feeding, excessive milk intake, excessive fruits intake.you have to control these factors before giving any medication

Initially children fall down while they are learning to walk. But you have him examined if still you feel any issue.

Hearing Impairment in Children and Importance of Early Intervention

Hearing Impairment in Children and Importance of Early Intervention

Deafness in children is not an uncommon phenomenon. 1-3 infants per 1000 birth is born with congenital sensory disorder. This is much higher when conductive hearing losses both congenital and acquired are taken into account. There is lack of awareness about the gravity of the problem among general population and medical fraternity.

  • Children learn to communicate by imitating the sounds they hear. Deafness in the early months of life in a child deprives this valuable sensory input. This results in non development of speech or delayed speech/language development, social problems and academic difficulties.
  • The goal of early intervention is to integrate the deaf child into the family and into society, to ensure development of normal/near normal speech and to enable the growth and development of a healthy confident child.
  • Universal neonatal hearing screening (UNHS) can diagnose babies born with deafness. They can be treated with hearing aid or cochlear implant to restore their hearing and subsequently speech language therapy started as soon as possible.
  • Early intervention results in normal or near normal speech and the affected child can be integrated into the society.
  • The parents, doctors and the society should come together and work hand in hand for achieving this goal.

The more an infant drinks. The less the child will eat and in addition it may cause reduced intake o other normal diet causing malnutrition.

I'm 27 year old mother if a nine month old baby girl from Bangalore. Baby has four teeth up and two teeth down, she almost bites me 3 of 5 times when breast feeding, it pains a lot and burns next time when fed. I'm afraid whether she will bite or feed, I tried in quiet room, properly latched her, but same us repeated. Please help me to solve this issue, when I reacted for it, she made a nursing strike for one day, which was more painful than that, please help me.

Please try offering semi-solid food. Breast milk alone is unable to meet baby's requirement as the baby grows. Not offering breast if your baby bites will be a negative reinforcement and she will stop biting you while feeding.
