Iron deficiency, constipation and soreness are some of the things you may suffer, while expending more energy and needing more calcium. Avoid bacteria from unwashed vegetables, unpasteurised milk, unfiltered water or uncooked meats. The mother needs extra energy, at least in the first six months, because she will be nursing the baby more often.So she needs to eat more calories, which will come from small meals, which are rich in proteins — nuts, daals and legumes. If you are a non-vegetarian, don't switch to a leafy vegetarian meal instantly. This will cause you more harm than good. Eat shredded meat in soups and broths without too much spice or oil. Pump iron Since a new mother suffers from loss of blood, her iron levels could be precariously balanced. A little spinach can go a long way.Incorporate spinach in everything such as daal, chappati dough and even in chicken curry. Milk the calcium It goes without saying that you’ll need lots of calcium so that the baby can use the cafeteria uninterrupted.If you are lactose intolerant, and can’t drink milk or eat milk products, go for curd.Garden cress seeds (aleev or haleem), are a rich source for calcium. Traditionally, these are made into sugar-rich ladoos. If you are being careful about sugar, make a haleem kheer. Water yourself There’s not much you can do to artificially stimulate breast milk, other than drink lots of fluids. Also, new mothers tend to be a little scared of the pain and resist passing urine or stools, which can result in constipation. Ordinarily, this can be resolved by medication. ingesting fluids by drinking lots of soup, coconut water, broths, whole fruits, fresh fruit juices and milkshakes that are also easier to eat for the harried mother Yoghurt is not only a stool softener but also has the probiotics essential for keeping Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) away. Edible gum balls (dink ladoos) are a good laxative because of their combination of ghee, edible gum and nuts. FOR MEDICATION CONSULT ONLINE IN PRIVATE

Hi congratulations on becoming a new mom. A new born baby sneezing is not synonymous with cold . They try to clear their nostrils with this reflex . At the same time for the nasal blockade you could put normal saline nasal drops with the name of nasoclear or otrinoz saline drops , one drop 4-6 times in a day in both the nostrils to help the baby clear the nose and feed properly . Keep a humidifier in the room if you can to prevent drying of secretions .

Food Allergies In Children

Food Allergies in Children

A food allergy is when your child’s body has a bad immune reaction to a certain food. This is different from a food intolerance which does not affect the immune system. This is true even though some of the same signs may be present.

Your child's immune system fights off infections and other dangers to keep him or her healthy. When your child's immune system senses that a food or something in a food is  a "danger" to your child's health, your child has a food allergy reaction. Your child's immune system sends out immunoglobulin E or IgE antibodies. These react to the food or substance in the food. Histamines are released. This can cause hives, asthma, itching in the mouth, trouble breathing, stomach pains, vomiting, or diarrhea. It does not take much of the food to cause a severe reaction in highly allergic children.

Most food allergies are caused by these foods:

Eggs, milk, and peanuts are the most common causes of food allergies in children. Although most children “outgrow” their allergies, some food allergies may be life long.

Discuss your child's food allergies with his or her allergy healthcare provider.

What are the symptoms of food allergy in a child?

Allergic symptoms may begin within minutes to an hour after eating the food. Symptoms can occur a bit differently in each child. They can include:

Allergies to milk and soy are usually seen in infants and young children. These symptoms often are not like the symptoms of other allergies. Instead they may include:

  • Colic or fussy behavior

  • Blood in your child’s stool

  • Poor growth

It does not take much of the food to cause a very bad reaction in highly allergic children. In fact, a tiny piece of a peanut can cause a reaction in a child that is highly allergic.

The symptoms of a food, milk, or soy allergy may look like other health problems. Make sure your child sees his or her healthcare provider for a diagnosis.

Severe symptoms of a food allergy

Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction. It is life-threatening. Symptoms can include:

  • Trouble breathing, shortness of breath, or wheezing

  • Feeling as if the throat is closing

  • Hoarseness or difficulty talking

  • Swelling of the face, lips, tongue, and throat

  • Cool, moist, or pale blue skin

  • Feeling faint, lightheaded, or confused

  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea

  • Fast and weak heartbeat

  • Feeling dizzy, with a sudden drop in blood pressure

  • Loss of consciousness

  • Seizure

Adenoids do not exist in nose. your problem is blocked n running nose. Saline nasal drop in each nostrils 3 to 4 times in a day may be helpful. Avoid dusting of powder n fibrous clothing or like, if using.

Dear doctor, I have a 12 year old son. He does’t show any interest in studies. He always likes to play computer and mobile games or watch TV. He studies and writes very little, compared with the syllabus for exams. This is happening from class I on words. He is studying with state syllabus. He studied well up to UKG only. Even when I try to show interesting videos in internet related to studies, he does’t like. Even when we scold him, he doesn't care. He frequently bunks classes. Even brushing teeth and bathing does not do regularly, even when we - parents put a lot of pressure. But he loves us and plays with us well. He behaves well with friends and neighbors. He also likes to eat junk food daily, because of which he is getting frequent health problems. I like to know whether there is anyway to change his behavior and create interest in studies to him, avoid junk food.

Good ​Afternoon, The symptoms that you describe for your son are very characteristic of ADHD with behavioral disturbances. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder can be of 3 types, isolated inattentive type, hyperactive/impulsive type and mixed type. It seems like he has been having these symptoms since 5-6 years of age. I also believe that you will do well to take him to a psychiatrist so that he gets better. He may also be having depression and irritability is a common sign of depression. I believe that you need to let me know more about your kid so that I can get to a proper diagnosis and help with management. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

Reason of cry appears to be hunger. Give her frequent feed. If you feel cry is due to teething, apply oracep or zytee gum paint. Else you may consult pediatrician.

My son is entering middle school in the fall. What advice can I give him if he finds himself on the receiving end of cyberbullying?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place using electronic technology. Prevention of cyberbullying: Parents and kids can prevent cyberbullying. Together, they can explore safe ways to use technology. -Be Aware of What Your Kids are Doing Online. Talk with your kids about cyberbullying and other online issues regularly. Know the sites your kids visit and their online activities. Ask where they’re going, what they’re doing, and who they’re doing it with. Tell your kids that as a responsible parent you may review their online communications if you think there is reason for concern. Installing parental control filtering software or monitoring programs are one option for monitoring your child’s online behavior, but do not rely solely on these tools. Have a sense of what they do online and in texts. Learn about the sites they like. Try out the devices they use. Ask for their passwords, but tell them you’ll only use them in case of emergency. Ask to “friend” or “follow” your kids on social media sites or ask another trusted adult to do so. Encourage your kids to tell you immediately if they, or someone they know, is being cyberbullied. Explain that you will not take away their computers or cell phones if they confide in you about a problem they are having. -Establish rules about appropriate use of computers, cell phones, and other technology. For example, be clear about what sites they can visit and what they are permitted to do when they’re online. Show them how to be safe online. Help them be smart about what they post or say. Tell them not to share anything that could hurt or embarrass themselves or others. Once something is posted, it is out of their control whether someone else will forward it. Encourage kids to think about who they want to see the information and pictures they post online. Should complete strangers see it? Real friends only? Friends of friends? Think about how people who aren’t friends could use it. Tell kids to keep their passwords safe and not share them with friends. Sharing passwords can compromise their control over their online identities and activities.
