My 3 and a half month baby is crying a lot these days especially when I try to breastfeed him. After so many trials he starts breastfeeding but stops in between and starts crying again. Moreover he sucks his fingers vigorously. What can be the possible reasons?? What should I do?

The only language newborns know is crying, crying. If he is gaining weight normally and active you don't have to worry about it. Burping: after each and evey feed try put him on your shoulder and burp him. Gas in the stomach will come out. Gas distension in the stomach may cause discomfort to the baby. Avoid spicy food while feeding. Check the mouth and tongue of the baby for mouth thrush (fungal infection -curd like layer) which may cause pain during feeding.

Did my baby's weight has increased too much in my 30 weeks pregnancy. Can that cause discomfort in chest.

Did my baby's weight has increased too much in my 30 weeks pregnancy. Can that cause discomfort in chest.
Hi, certainly, rapid growth in the baby can lead to pressure in the chest and gerd (reflux). You should try to take small frequent meals, and avoid spicy foods. Also, sleep with a slightly raised head and neck position. Taking medicines after talking to your doctor may help as well. Please get back for specific advice, warm regards.

Newborn babies may not pass every day and is not a health issue. If yu bottle feed you have to stop bottle and breastfeed and other feeds of given must be given with spoon. If you want you can insert a laxative suppository.

Hi my son is 4 years old from last few days he is excessively crying, I think that he has problem with his digestive system whenever he takes milk he started crying after sometime please help me he is also diagnosed with canavan diseases.

Intake of milk might be making him cry because he must not be liking milk. Crying usually at this age is attention seeking behaviour. Ignore at times when you think that he is crying without any reason.

My 10 years daughter cries too much, she doesnt says anything if she is having any problem, only cries, please tell what to do?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Faridabad
It is poor communication between you and your daughter. Probably your daughter is not comfortable to tell you something or she is in pre adolscence and she is not comfortable with physical or mental changes that are taking place. She may be in distress of any Kind example sexual abuse, social pressure, peer pressure. I think it is an emergency and you must communicate with her or take some help from doctor or psychologist.

Pulp therapy is absolutely safe however the child should be supportive or it can also be done in general anaesthesia. As he is 4 years old, that teeth should be saved till the permanent teeth come, and the treatment will not affect the eruption of permanent teeth.

You do not have to do anything special except for feeding the baby and taking general care of the baby. You can learn how to take care of the baby from any nurse/doctor if there is any confusion.

If injection, you mean vaccination, these are given for prevention of diseases for which vaccine is given and are oral also. All vaccines which has been provided by govt of india are free and for more common and serious diseases considering cost effectiveness of disease. Other vaccines available in private clinic are optional and can be given to baby after discussion with pediatrician. It is long list of vaccine chart which you may obtain from your pediatrician.

Adolescent Behavior

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
General Physician, Bangalore
Adolescent Behavior

Upon reaching adolescence, children's bodies undergo several changes and so do their minds. It is then that their minds are most, as well as least impressionable. And the daunting question regarding the upbringing of an adolescent is how to treat their constantly changing behavior?

Here are some of the tantrums adolescents more commonly throw, and what should ideally be your approach to it:

  1. Your child seems to hate you: It is very common for a phase of emotional exclusionism to prevail between 16-17 years of age approximately. And the worst thing you could do is heighten that emotion by returning the hatred. Make sure you're firm against any extremely unacceptable behavior, but at the same time, show them that you're there for them no matter what.
  2. Electronic devices become the center of their attention: Whenever you want to have an earnest conversation with your children, their attention seems to be drawn solely to their phones and computers. They feel the need to be connected to their friends and all times. Ways to monitor that are by setting limit to the maximum hours spent on devices or making them pay their own bills, which will make them more responsible rather than splurging unnecessarily. Also, if your child is not entirely secluded from the family, it is probably best not to interfere all the time.
  3. Ignoring the curfew: Your kids often stay out later than the set limit. But it is quite possible that your curfew is unreasonable when compared to other parents' curfew. Find out what the average time limit is; it may prevent your child from bearing a grudge against you. In case they still fail to respect your curfew, make sure you spill out to them what the consequences can be, like being grounded for a week. However, in certain cases, your child may be spending time doing nothing constructive, but away from home. There may be something else going on, find out what that is.
  4. Being friends with the wrong people: Sometimes it might happen that you think some children do not have a good influence on your child, but you cannot say that directly because adolescents tend to get very defensive about their choice of friends. Unless the adolescent is doing something harmful with the friend, like using drugs, let him exercise his choice. Otherwise, don't hesitate from seeking professional help to counsel your child.
  5. Being over-dramatic: Every emotion is heightened in your child and you cannot tell them that what they are whining or being overjoyed about are trivial, because that's their prime focus then. Let them realize on their own how irrational they sound or else you may risk spoiling your relation with them.

No powder is good to mix in milk. It is just for your satisfaction to add a little more nutrient which can be compensated by nutritious diet with low cost.
