You have not mentioned your age but based on the information you have provided I believe the risks after three c-sections are high for normal pregnancy and more so for twin pregnacy. Because your uterus is not as strong as initially and there are more chances of uterine rupture and scar dehiscence (separation of layers of muscles at the site of stiches) which can be lethal for mother and the baby. If you still want to go ahead you should consult a gynaecologist for proper examination of your c-section scar and your fertility level if need be.

Give some good goodtonic name so that my 10 year old kid gains weight he is 10 years old and 23 kg height is 4.4.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
As people believe the tonics cannot help gain weight. They are good for providing vitamins and miners supplements which we may not get from food esp children who are fussy eaters. DIet rich in good calories and protein and fat in minimum (adequate) amount are good for growth.

Dear Sir/Mam, My 4.5 years son and 1.5 years son got cold (sticky running nose) since 5 days. The elder one developed mild cough from yesterday. Both of them don't have any other issues and no fever as well. I was using syp of Cetrizine Hydrochloride and Ambroxol Hydrochloride (3 ml for elder son) from Day 2. But no change in symptoms.

This syp is pretty much the same as you have been given earlier. These are viral infection which usually settle in their own. However antibiotics are needed if secondary infection develops as evidenced by fever and toxicity. Continue with mild remedies. If the cough does settle within a few days, see a doc.

Best contraceptive is that which suits you and you like. New Copper T is quite good and safe, low oestrogen OCP can be used. Before adopting any contraceptive method, consult Family planing Counselor.

5 Proven Hacks to Keep Your Kids Away From Junk Food!

5 Proven Hacks to Keep Your Kids Away From Junk Food!
5 Proven ways to keep your child away from junk food

In India, 2% of urban children are obese, 8-10% are overweight and the number of children likely to be obese is on the rise. Junk food seems to be the major cause behind this recent trend.

Low in nutrient but high on calories, junk food has been found to adversely affect not only energy levels but also brain function. With junk food being easily available, it could be tough to keep your child away from it while nudging him on to eat healthily. However, there are ways in which you can keep your child away from junk food, and consequently lifestyle diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular problems etc. Read on...

1. Always keep healthy snacks easily accessible
Children have a tendency to have foods that are visible and easy to reach. So, if you have packaged foods that your child can get his hands on very easily, it’s time to remove them. From vegetables, fruits to wholegrain crackers, such healthy snack options should be within the reach of your child. Place them in easy to reach food cabinets or on the lower shelves of the fridge, so that whenever your child feels hungry, he can go straight for them rather than opting for unhealthy food options.

2. Say no to junk food when at home
You have the power to create a home environment where you can control what can be eaten and what goes into your pantry. The home should be a place where healthy food should be in and junk food should be out. This way, you get to control the amount of junk food your child has as well as present healthier alternatives to him.

3. Don’t reward your child with junk food
It is very common for parents to reward their children with junk food. This shouldn’t be done as it only makes junk food an even more appealing option for children. Instead opt for non-food rewards such as extra pocket money, or a new toy etc.
Moreover, you shouldn’t use junk food as a bargaining chip either, i.e. by telling him he can have an ice cream if he eats his vegetables first. This would do more harm than good as your child would find processed foods more appealing and healthy food alternatives less appealing.

4. Lead by example
In order for your child to eat healthily, you need to lead by example. Limit your own consumption of junk food first. If you want to take your child away from junk food, you need to be a role-model yourself. Furthermore, it is good to include your child on your plans for healthy eating as it allows them to have a say in what they would and wouldn’t like to eat instead of foodstuffs being imposed on them. Make a meal plan together to figure out healthier eating alternatives for your child.

5. Teach moderation to your child
Don’t completely ban junk food as this move can backfire. This is because, by doing so, the moment your child gets the opportunity to have junk food items, he will most likely overindulge. On the other hand, teach him about moderation and the importance of having small quantities of this type of food from time to time.
Teaching your child to eat healthily is not an easy task, but is also not impossible to achieve. With a little bit of guidance and perseverance, you can easily achieve the goal of keeping your child away from junk foods.

Calcium Supplements like Shelcal ( for elderly) and Calci max suspension(for children) contain Calcium carbonate as one of the main components.People say that one should avoid these supplements as the Calcium carbonate present in these can cause stones after a period of time. If this is true, kindly advise alternate calcium supplements for elderly as well as children which are totally safe.

Pediatrician, Delhi
These supplements are safe as long as they are given in prescribed doses for a specific duration for a specific deficiency. If there is a diagnosed deficiency of any nutrient, it has to be evaluated and then correction given. These are drugs and no one should use any drug for prolonged durations in unspecified doses.

Delay in speech could be due to impaired hearing or due to abnormal mental development. Immediately do his bera test to rule out hearing problem.

Food ahbits are common weithmanychildren. It maychange as he grows and you can lvoivngly make him understand while taking care not to scold or censure him. Potty can be due to lack of fibre in diet and due to less water intake try giving lots of vegetable and fruits, but hypothyroidism in children can also give constipation. Please check his cbc, tsh and inform me directly so that I will not miss it in general questions pool.

What Causes Iron Deficiency in Children?

CCT, FRCPCH , MRCPCH, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
What Causes Iron Deficiency in Children?

Iron deficiency is a common condition in children. It occurs when there is a scarcity of iron in the child's system due to malnutrition. Iron is an extremely important mineral that is required for growth and development in young ones. It is used in transporting oxygen through the bloodstream and is essential for the functioning of the muscles. If the child's diet lacks iron then the condition might worsen and turn into anemia.

Children need different levels of iron intake at different ages for proper development of all mental and physical faculties. As the child gets older and reaches the age of puberty, the requirement of iron and other minerals also increases. Deficiencies can lead to various nutritional disorders that may cause severe complications.

The primary cause of iron deficiency in children is an improper diet which leads to a lack of nourishment. There are a number of other causes of the problem, some of which are as follows:

  • Low birth weight
  • Excessive intake of cow's milk at less than 2 years of age
  • Feeding exclusively on breastmilk beyond 6 months of age
  • Lead poisoning
  • Insufficient intake of lean meat
  • Pure vegetarian diet
  • Gastrointestinal disease or infection
  • Improper diet of the mother during pregnancy
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Infestation of parasites in the digestive system.

If the problem arises due to dietary deficiency, it can be easily solved by making simple modifications to the child's diet plan. If the condition stems from other factors or diseases, the child must be taken to a doctor immediately for a medical diagnosis and remedial treatment.

Dear lybrate user, it's very important question and good no. Of young mothers are concerned about it.In fact at six months child should have a change. He start picking up things from floor and put it in mouth. Mother feels that her breast milk has gone down. Fact is mothers should feed in consonance of age of child in months. A six month old should be. Fed at six hourly interval for twenty minutes.in between if child cry than he should be given very thin soup, half cup of home prepared cereals. May be wheat rice. At times mashed green veg. Leaves can be used. But do not force feed, change feeds, give three hours interval between two feeds. Do not stop breast suddenly but gradually in next 12 months. By 9 months, child can bite indicating semisolid feeds can be introduced.

The swelling in the head needs to be seen more so if the size is increasing. It might be small boil or some allergic urticarial phenomena. It is difficult to advise without seeing.

Give him as much as he wants. This is called demand feeding but don't forget to burp him after every feed. No, he will not have any digestive problems if you burp him after every feed.
