My son Jeremy is 14 months old and his fontanelle has still not closed. What can I do? He has also not started to walk.

My son Jeremy is 14 months old and his fontanelle has still not closed. What can I do? He has also not started to walk.
The Anterior fontanelle (AF) is simply an area on top of a baby’s head where the various bony plates that make up the skull have not yet come together. The fact that a newborn’s skull isn’t one solid bone at birth, but rather comprised of several bony plates is not just useful, but necessary, as it allows a newborn’s head to adjust enough in size to pass through the birth canal and then allow the skull to expand as babies’ brains grow considerably throughout the first year.------------AF is generally between 3 to 6 centimeters diameter during the first 6 months of life, and gradually gets smaller thereafter—closing some time between the ages of 10 and 25 months old. Any babies who are born prematurely, however, may have their anterior fontanelles close even later. -------So your question is of little concern right now and nothing to worry about-----------------------

1 to 3 years is known as toddler period children are more explorative during this period. They are more prone for injuries and accidents. Parents should be extra cautious to prevent these. Keep all the drugs including paracetamol in tight bottles. Keep all the sharp objects, poisonous substances out of reach of children. Always keep an eye on them as they can put any thing into mouth.

Hi. My daughter is 5 yrs old. She had malaria last week. We have completed the doses as directed by the physician. But still she is having fever this morning.

MD - Paediatrics, Diploma in Child Health (DCH)
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Sometimes malaria is resistant. Depends on what medication was used by your doctor. Or malaria may be gone, but because she is weak, she might have picked up some other infection. Kindly go back to the doctor who treated her for malaria and get her checked up.

hello, lybrate user, the term 'hitting head ' is not very much clear, please. moreover,it might be due to intestinal worm, or gastric disorder. in both cases, your responsibility is greater,please. if you are feeding of your own , should avoid junk food. tk care.

hi this is doctor Kalpesh from Pune this is a very good question you have ask about the temperature regulation system development in babies when babies inside the womb baby thermostatic settings are not that developed after delivery baby starts getting accommodated to the external environmental temperature and hypothalamic axis starts taking over the control of temperature regulation system TCP is not getting adopted to external environment you need to support baby buy wrapping With warm clothes keeping the temperature up to 30 degree Celsius you can also keep up baby along with your body touch so that baby can get heat from your body that is also called as Kangaroo Mother Care for the baby air conditioning is useful to prevent sweating during summer season and maintaining the hydration of your body but that is not at all feasible for babies you can get consulted for further details about baby babycare,regards

My 4 year old Son is suffering from ITP from Dec'15. He has a plate count of around 35000. He has been on prednisolone dosage tapering from 20 mg to 2.5 mg per day till 10th Jun'16. Now he is taking only Azoran 50 mg daily. He does not have any bleeding symptoms, only some bruises.

Oh! i'm sure child must have got ivig therapy intially. Well in itp 35000/- pc are indeed good. We see kids having pc of even 2000 to 10000. Without any bleed. Eventually they recover. Tapering regimen is very much required and your doc is very well doing that. Azoran is usually prescribed when there are refractory cases where pc were low for quite a low and or child comes with secondary itp. So I assume your case also be such tough. Be assured things are going to be fine. Have patience and make sure child doesn't get injury anywhere. Trauma would be worst in such cases. Regards

My daughter who is now 6 months old doesn't like to drink milk. What should I do?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Don't force her, instead give whatever she likes (Breast Milk) and start gradual weaning with home diet. Remember she has mind just like you. Imagine how do you feel when some one forces you to eat against your will. Don't try to justify she doesn't know. Mind doesn't accept that

Hello sir/maa'm I want to ask you that my son is suffering from cough and cold and I give him livolin syrup from 4 days but till now he is not well. And he is suffers from cough and cold after every 15 days. Please give me some permanant solution.

Pediatrician, Pune
Livolin may be given for relieving the spasm in the lungs, caused by dust, smoke allergens, prevention is better than cure, give him a smoke, dust free environment, avoid fur toys, avoid junk food, give plenty of liquids, water, fruits, keep him active outdoors, keep him happy, and see the difference, mean while continue with medications in consultation with your doctor.

My son is 8year old and suffering emurisis and adhd. And we don't want to follow the antideprassant medicine please guide and prescibe the solutions.

Pediatrician, Pune
Dont make him realise and make him feel bad for his eneuresis, it is ok that some children have a delayed control, try to strengthen the bladder sphincter during the day time, by holding the urine when he feels like urinating, no liquids after 7 pm, pass urine before going to bed at night, reward and encourage if he has dry nights, but let him feel that it is ok, if he passes urine at night, encouraging and positive feed back is far superior than negative attitude, help him as much as possible.
