You should continue to breast feed your baby to get relief from engorgement of breast. You may even express breast milk in addition for quick relief.

Hello, Worms could be one of the reasons which is very common in the young children. Please consult his respective paediatrician for the deworming agent to be given. Deworming is very important with kids at least once a year. Secondly, avoid giving him excess of sugar and ready to eat processed foods. Fresh, homecooked, nutritional densed food should be given. Since the level of physical activity is more you need to monitor is food habits closely.

It's normal as 90% of males engage in that act but you should not do it excessively as it may hamper your routine work and also you should not do it in the public area. Try to engage in other mind diverting activities like reading, writing etc.

My 1years 2months baby had febrile seizure last month for first time and I have got some solution from doctors through Lybrate. Thanks for all of them. Now my query is that, is it not possible to restrict febrile seizure permanently, that it should not attack the baby in future. And also suggest me either any chances of this disorder will appear due cold or caught.

Symptoms and Myths About Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and How to Spot Them in Children

Symptoms and Myths About Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and How to Spot Them in Children

Children generally tend to be fairly over active and have lesser attention spans. However, when this tends to get into their performance at school and in general with getting along with other children it may be a sign of ADD or attention deficit disorder. Let's look at some of the common symptoms of this disorder.

Symptoms of ADD:

  1. Problems in staying focused: One of the very basic symptom is that children will often be very inattentive even during classes and will be easily distracted by small things.
  2. Problems in trying to remember things or difficulty in following instructions: Children with attention deficit disorder tend to have issues with remembering things and if given tasks, being unable to complete as they can't remember instructions properly.
  3. Issues with organizing, planning and trying to finish tasks: Due to the lack of attention, kids have problems retaining information and cannot plan or finish tasks given to them on a daily basis.
  4. Easily bored or loses interest: Even if a child with ADD starts with something they like, interest may wane off quickly. Thus it is difficult to make them stick to a specific work schedule which may require regular practice.
  5. Lack of attention to details and making careless mistakes: This is another trait of children with attention deficit disorder. They may be able to complete a task, but it will be fraught with mistakes as they wouldn't have much attention to detail.
  6. Has a tendency to not listen when someone is speaking to them: This is also very common and is usually tied to being easily distracted and thus will drift off or not listen to when someone is speaking to them.

Some Myths about ADD:

  • All kids with ADD are hyperactive
  • They will eventually grow out of it
  • Medication is the only option to treat ADD
  • ADD is not really a disorder and kids need to be trained better

Most of these are half truths and the extent of the problems varies from child to child. Only proper counseling will be able to diagnose the extent of the problem and what needs to be done.

How to spot ADD in Children:

ADD can be spotted in children aged below 7 years via certain symptoms. Apart from the ones mentioned above, children generally tend be abrasive towards others and can make embarrassing comments quite often. They also change tasks very quickly without completing any of them. Any distraction would force them to change their track. It is best to go to a child specialist to get your child checked out for possible symptoms.

Some children grunt for a few months and this resolves slowly. But this can be a sign of some disease as well. In order to differentiate, tell more about your child.

My 8 month baby getting heavy stool. What can I do?

MD - Alternative Medicine
Alternative Medicine,
Its due to infection, need to visit your physician between a time to protect against dehydration, you might need to give your baby an electrolyte solution such as pedialyte in between feedings. Alternately, you may need to replace the feedings entirely with the electrolyte solution. Best wishes.

If baby is otherwise normal, most likely reason of his cry is his hunger and/ or desiring to play and/ or for outing. As you said that he sleeps in day time, now night is his playing time. This is normal habit of child at this age. Give him some time to play with him and look for his desire of food, I hope problem shall be resolved.

To treat the cause of problem is best to get rid of disease. U have yourself caught culprit of cough- chocolate, biscuit or other food from out side. Stop giving all items like these, cough shall be cured. Mild cold time to time is not abnormal. However for increasing immunity, Vitamin A 60.000 units once in a week for 6 weeks and Zinc syrup 20 mg daily for 2 weeks can be given.

Good morning. For a 1 year old weighing 10 kg poohing 7-8 times a day is normal unless if he has behavioural changes, very watery loose motions, dehydration signs, not passing urine less frequently, bloody stools, foul smelling stools, decreased intake of food. Hence if these signs are present in your kid then only go for medicational treatment or else its better to not use antibiotics unnecessarily which seems irrational. Thank you, have a nice day.

It is a form of birth trauma. Relax it won't cause any problem. It is due to blood collection in muscle. It will resolve on its own.
