Stuffy per say needs no treatment. If ithe nose is really blocked then he cant suck or sleep. Then with torch look into the nose. If there is block put some saline nasal drops (it is available over the counter with chemists.

Hi, Febrile seizures grade in children when they have high grade fever of 104 or 105 degrees. That is why tepid sponging is advised so that the forehead temperature comes down quickly. Children who are well taken care of, Do not land up with seizures. Family history of diabetes is not the cause of Febrile seizures.

Please help in suggesting what to feed for iron requirement to my 11 month old baby?
Normal home cooked food without spices in semi solid form should be given in routine. Emphasize on green vegetables. You can add jaggery. Pomegranate juice will help for more iron (if actually needed. Supplement may be given.

Yes it is, as if not treated this will be source of infection, causing bacterimia all along till new tooth comes.

Breastfeeding - Know The Benefits!

Breastfeeding - Know The Benefits!

A mother’s milk is said to be the most nutritious food for a new born baby. It contains the perfect balance of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals needed for your baby and changes to keep up with your baby’s growing needs. However, the benefits of breastfeeding extend way beyond nutritional value. Breastfeeding is beneficial for both you and your baby. Ideally, a baby should be breastfed for at least the first six months.

Here are 5 major benefits of breastfeeding.

  1. Stronger immunity: Mother’s milk is rich in antibodies and a number of unique compounds that help the newborn child’s body fight bacterial and viral infections. No other form of baby food is as rich in these antibodies. Babies who have been breastfed have a lower risk of suffering from ailments such as ear infection, stomach upsets and respiratory problems. The first milk expressed by a woman’s breasts after giving birth is known as colostrums. This milk coats the baby’s digestive system and prevents the growth of harmful bacteria.
  2. Fewer allergies: Breast milk is easier to digest than formula or cow’s milk. This protects the gastrointestinal passages from inflammation and prevents undigested food from triggering allergic reactions. Being breastfed can also reduce the number of allergies a child may suffer from in their later years.
  3. Healthy body weight: Breastfeeding makes a child less likely to suffer from obesity in their later childhood and adult years. This is because breast milk contains less insulin and more hormones as compared to formula. This helps regulate fat absorption. On an average, babied fed on formula put on weight quickly and are more likely to overeat in their later years.
  4. Stronger bones: Breastfeeding is beneficial for both the child and the mother. When a woman is breastfeeding her child, her body’s ability to absorb calcium increases. This helps increase bone density, especially as pregnancy can make bones weak.
  5. Builds a strong mother-child bond: After 9 months of carrying a child to term, giving birth may lead to post partum depression and a mother may feel the connection between her and the child severed. Breastfeeding helps nurture this connection and provides emotional relief to both the mother and child. For the mother, this experience releases hormones that reduce stress and relax the body. For the baby, close physical contact is very important and this process provides the perfect opportunity to do so.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Bedwetting In Children - Know The Categories!

Bedwetting In Children - Know The Categories!

Bedwetting, also known as Nocturnal Enuresis, can be referred to as the unintended and involuntary urination during sleep. Enuresis, being a medical term, stands for wetting, whether during the day in full clothing or at night in bed. For young children and infants, urination is certainly involuntary. It is worth note that children who wet their beds are not actually being disobedient or lazy.

Child Bedwetting can be classified into two types- Primary and Secondary

Primary Bedwetting

It has been continuing since the phase of early childhood without a halt; which means the child bed-wets every night.

Causes:

  1. The child is unable to hold urine over the length of the night.

  2. The child cannot wake up in case his or her bladder is almost full..

  3. The child has been taught poor toilet habits as he/she puts off urinating for hours during the day.

Secondary Bedwetting

Secondary bedwetting can be an indication of a repressed medical or emotional condition.

Causes:

  1. Infection of the urinary tract can cause irritation and pain along with a strong urge to urinate.

  2. People suffering from diabetes need to urinate frequently.

  3. Any injury or abnormality of the nervous system can take a toll on the neurological balance that fundamentally controls urination

  4. A peculiarity in the muscles or other organs that are involved in urination can be the reason behind bedwetting.

How to address the problem of bedwetting?

  1. Motivational Therapy: This involves parents motivating their children to reinforce their sense of self-control over bed-wetting.

  2. Moisture alarms that can detect wetness in the child’s trousers while sleeping and sound an alarm bell to wake the child up.

  3. Tricyclic anti-depressants that lower the amount of urine produced by the kidney.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

No it is not harmful. Mother can continue breastfeeding the child. It is compulsory to breastfeed till 2 years of age, and it is preferable if mother can continue feeding till 3 years of age or longer. Prolonged breastfeeding possess no harm.

My 3 year old is sick with a temperature of 100 degrees she can not keep anything down including liquids. What should I do?

MD-Pediatrics
Pediatrician, Bikaner
In children refusal to feed is considered as a warning sign. What are her other complaints besides fever. Try to bring down fever with paracetamol drops which will help reduce temperature and throat pain (which could be the reason for his refusal to eat). Secondly consult a pediatrician and start antibiotics if required.
