Madam, You should have started top milk 4 to 5 months back itself. Now at least once you can give top milk. Later you can wean off breast feeding. If child refuse top milk, get back to me for further guidance.

Child Development - Is Your Toddler A Late Walker?

Child Development - Is Your Toddler A Late Walker?

Some babies learn to walk by the age of nine to ten months, and others may take longer, much longer to start walking properly. By the age of 15 months, people may start asking you if your little munchkin is able to walk yet. These constant questions can eventually irk you off, and keep you wondering if truly your baby is facing any sort of disability or not. In most cases, you will probably find your baby was too lazy to start walking all along, and he has mastered the art of “toddling” a couple of months later. Other times, when your baby has not started walking in over 17 months, you may want to give your paediatrician a visit.

When should you not worry?

If your baby is an active child and is playing around normally, you may not worry about him or her too much. If you find your child able to move around crawling or rapidly kicking his legs around, then your child is probably a late bloomer when it comes to walking. Other factors that will indicate that your baby is not going through any developmental issues are when he or she is able to communicate with sounds or broken speech. Other thing that you must keep in your mind is the relative age of your baby if it is born premature. If your toddler was born two months prematurely, then you must consider his developmental age by adding two months to his actual birth. Also notice if your child is able to move positions on his own, like if he is able to change positions when he is sitting down or lying down. As such, inability to walk is not really a solid indicative of a developmental disorder.

When is it of concern?

When you go to your paediatrician with your child regarding his inability to walk, your doctor will firstly take a note of the general movement of your baby. Thus the “quality” of movement is what matters the most. If your baby is showing signs of rigidity or flaccidity in his limbs, it may concern your doctor, as it is the primary symptom of cerebral palsy. Nothing can be concluded unless your get proper reports of scans like MRIs which your doctor will recommend you to get.

If your child is not walking, avoid carrying him around too much to allow him to make movements on his own. Who knows, you may find yourself chasing him around all over in no time! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pediatrician.

5 Healthy Habits That Every Child Should Follow

5 Healthy Habits That Every Child Should Follow

Few things in life take longer than habits to be inculcated and eventually to die out. Every parent tries in his or her way to teach the child certain healthy habits, those that they wish would be followed long enough to be internalized by them. Certain healthy habits that every child should follow are:

  1. Include a lot of vegetables in the diet: There is an array of vegetables available in the market, which is replete with rich nutritional values. Though children are generally averse to the idea of eating vegetables, it is your duty to inculcate in them the habit of eating vegetables and constantly remind them of their rich nutritional benefits.
  2. Never skip breakfast: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and is often the most ignored. Most children have the propensity to skip breakfast if they are late and generally they are seldom reprimanded by their parents. As a parent, you must make it a point not to take this lightly and severely insist on a healthy breakfast every morning.
  3. Indulge in physical activities: With the advent and easy access of technology, going out to play in has become a distant reality, one that is never explored. However, it goes without saying that nothing can substitute the physical and mental benefits that a physical activity entails. It not only keeps the body of your child fit but also helps in keeping the mind fresh.
  4. Read daily: Few things in life can be as rewarding and fulfilling as reading a book. However the habit does not come easy and as a parent it is your responsibility to induce in them this. Try to make your child read a few pages everyday till they take it up themselves out of their volition.
  5. Drink water and skip the soda: The many flavored sodas, which are available serve as a more palatable alternative to the drab water for the children. Though the choice may seem convenient, it must be snipped off right from the beginning. Sodas are packed with harmful preservatives and should be duly avoided by children. Instead, they must choose the bottle of water to quench the thirst.

Isolated speech delay can occur in some children. But you must get audiometry done to rule out hearing problem.

My baby is 2 month old. She does sleep. She controls her sleep. She falls off to sleep when I am breastfeeding her. The minute I take nipple out of her mouth she wakes up. Is it ok to give her a pacifier to put her to sleep and let the pacifier be in her mouth till she wakes up?

Do not use a pacifier and it is normal for infants to fall asleep while feeding and it is a bit tiresome for mothers and is the pain of motherhood. You wake her up scratching foot or neck and continue to feed.

Thank you for your query. It is advised to consult your paediatrician to assess the condition of the baby before anything specific can be advised. The doctor will try to find the cause for cold and cough and manage accordingly.

Once try to obsrrve after she goes to bed. The first position how she lies, later. How she changes. If you keen on observing, you may b able to find out at what time after or how she changes her position. If it happens suddenly or without conciousness followed by noise in mouth, etc. Once she needs to see neuroligist (suspecting seizures) n related check ups as precautionary action. If it all happens in normal pattern n with her consciousness&voluntarily,&responding well when you call, then you need not to worry. But it all depends on your observation.

My grand daughter (40) days old cries every day late evening time. I have consulted leading pediatrician . Some nosal drop and suspected cold and some medicine for spazams is given but till this crying continues. Please suggest.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
It looks like evening colic, for which no reason can be subscribed. Nothing to worry if child is taking good amount of feeds and growing well. Support and make the child feel secure. She will grow out of this sooner. May give colimex drops 4-5 half an hour before fixed time (if any) of crying. This is common problem faced by many young mothers.

Hi, Hope your baby is cute. Your baby is getting adequate breast feed, and weight gain is also good. According to the recommendations, all mothers has to give only breast feed till completion of 6 months of age for their babies. So far, what you have done is correct. Give only breast feed for one more month. Then you have to start solid food after 6 months of age while continuing breast feed till 2 years of age to your child. Hope you understood.

Hello, you should give him Kindival , 2 tabs thrice daily for a good sleep and behaviour. You should develop the practice of spoon feeding because this the best way to avoid unwanted infections. If your baby get used to having a bottle-feed every time he fall asleep, he might develop an association between the bottle and sleep. He might then find it hard to fall asleep without a bottle. There is a risk of tooth decay Milk is quite high in sugar. Soaking your baby’s teeth in it overnight can cause tooth decay. There is a risk of ear infections When a baby drinks lying down, milk can flow through to the ear cavity, which can cause ear infections. Thanks , take care.

Nothing much. It should be gradual withdrawal for child and mother. Child should be made to ear|drink thin soup. Gradual withdrawal will not bring breast discomfort.
