This condition is called laryngomalacia that is due to soft immature airway in infant that collapses during crying and produce noise during breathing.But there is nothing to worry, it will resolve itself with time.

Do not worry. Keep observing the baby and report to the doctor if she develops fever or experiences difficulty in taking the feeds. Maintain a pleasent temperature with good ventilation. Take the precautions so that it does not trouble more aggressively. Read more from the internet about infant care and learn about normal things. If needed you can also introduce Homeopathy which is safe and gentle. You can contact me for further details.

My child is one and a half year old and he does not eat anything and only drinks milk. And also bites everyone.

My child is one and a half year old and he does not eat anything and only drinks milk. And also bites everyone.
Teething may be the cause behind his biting problem. Start giving him some crunchy food like piece of apple or some teething toy. Give him every home made food which you eat seeing you eating will help him to pick eating habit.

Which is better.
It is not necessary to use lotion or cream to infant. A simple massage with veg oil like coconut, olive or sun flower oil is quite good.

It's normal for babies to develop rashes from as early as a few days old, as their sensitive skin adapts to a different environment. Most rashes are harmless and go away on their own. But if your baby has developed a rash and seems unwell, see your local pediatrician to find out the cause and receive any necessary treatment. Your feedback matters. Thank-you.

Iron Deficiency In Children - Symptoms And Prevention

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), Pediatric Gastroenterology

Iron Deficiency In Children - Symptoms And Prevention

Iron is an essential nutrient and mineral that is required by adults and children alike. Iron helps move oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body and helps muscles store and use oxygen. It is especially important for children because it aids development and prevents anaemia. Untreated iron deficiency in children can cause physical and mental delays. It can lead to less healthy red blood cells in the child's blood stream which will cause a delay in the growth of physical and mental faculties.

Risk factors for iron deficiency in children

Infants and children at highest risk of iron deficiency include:

  1. Babies who are born prematurely or have a low birth weight
  2. Babies who drink cow's milk before age 1
  3. Breast-fed babies who aren't given complementary foods containing iron after age 6 months
  4. Babies who drink formula that isn't fortified with iron
  5. Children ages 1 to 5 who drink more than 24 ounces (710 milliliters) of cow's milk, goat's milk or soy milk a day
  6. Children suffering from, Malabsorption, Chronic diarrhoea, thyroid disorders and Celiac Disease
  7. Children ages 1 to 5 who have been exposed to lead
  8. Adolescent girls also are at higher risk of iron deficiency because their bodies lose iron during menstruation.

Symptoms of iron deficiency anaemia

The signs and symptoms of iron deficiency anaemia in children may include:

  1. Pale skin
  2. Fatigue or weakness
  3. Slow cognitive and social development
  4. Difficulty maintaining body temperature
  5. Increased likelihood of infections
  6. Unusual cravings for non-nutritive substances, such as ice, dirt or pure starch

Prevent iron deficiency in children

Take steps to prevent iron deficiency in your child by paying attention to his or her diet. For example:

  1. Encourage a balanced diet. When you begin serving your baby solids, typically between ages 4 months and 6 months, feed him or her foods with added iron, such as iron-fortified baby cereal. For older children, good sources of iron include red meat, chicken, fish, beans and dark green leafy vegetables. Between ages 1 and 5, don't allow your child to drink more than 24 ounces (710 milliliters) of milk a day.
  2. Enhance absorption. Vitamin C helps promote the absorption of dietary iron. You can help your child absorb iron by offering foods rich in vitamin C, such as melon, strawberries, kiwi, broccoli, tomatoes and potatoes.
  3. Deworming: The power to kill parasites. With such tablets, we can eliminate worms in children and stop parasites from absorbing the critical nutrients a child needs to develop.
  4. Consider iron supplements. If your baby was born prematurely or with a low birth weight or you're breast-feeding a baby older than 4 months and he or she isn't eating two or more servings a day of iron-rich foods, talk to your child's doctor about oral iron supplements.

Don't take pallor lightly. Consult the doctor.

Make sure that you watch out for the tell tale signs of iron deficiency and take the necessary precautions to avoid the same. If you wish to discuss about any specific child related problem, you can consult a specialized pediatrician.
