Nothing can be done beyond the necessary treatment which is going on in the NICU. You have to wait and whatever the treatment is going on now let it to be continued and save the child first. Regarding brain development if the child survives you can think later on but nothing can be done right now.

Junior lanzole has no role in constiption. Muout is not helpful. If child is not passing stool for 2 days and active, it is not abnormal. Give him fibrous food and liquid/ water in good quantity. Train him for toileting habit asking him to sit daily or twice in a day on pot for about 10-15 minutes.

Sir, my 4 years daughter can't speak, she can hear properly but cannot speak, she speaks only 2-3 words like mammi, kaka. What should I do, I consult the doctors they said she will speak. But as long as time is moving I am getting very upset. Please suggest some solution.

Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
Dear , you have mentioned that your daughter hears normally. If so, she will eventually speak normally. Still, as v consider 3 yrs to b the age for normal speech, I wud advice getting her hearing tested, called audiometry, by a ent surgeon.

No, not at all. If your child is normal now, he will be normal forever. Very rarely some preterm babies will have developmental problems which can be detected early.

Hi, my kid is 9 months old. Now he is eating kichidi which is made with rice, dal, half tomato, small piece of carrot, 2 peas, 4 to 5 leaves of palak or spinach. My doubt is that if I use palak along with tomato is that causes any problem like stones in kidneys like that. please suggest. Suggesting some other baby food is most helpful.

Baby needs to be given same food that family eats. It has to be made semi solid so that baby can swallow. You all need to take meals together with baby so that baby watches and learns the way you eat. Whole family (infants and older children included) needs to take healthy food. You are doing a great job just enjoy meals together with the baby. This will inculcate a good habit.

What's foods are benefits for them.
Hi, for kids, always maintain a balanced, healthy and nutritious diet by giving seasonal fruits, salads, good amount of water, milk and milk products, legumes, cerelas, nuts (almonds, cashewnuts, pistachios, peanuts) and encourage him in for participating in physical activities which is a kind of exercise for kids. All these would help in increasing his immunity, maintaining good health. Give him homoeopathic medicine - alfalfa tonic twice a day for 3 months.

Try colimex drops instead. Works better than colicaiid. And you avoid milk products and garlic the mother for few days. Lessens colic. Also try changing the formula.

Dealing With A Baby's First Cold

Dealing With A Baby's First Cold
With the "sick season" upon us, I'm starting to see more babies with cold symptoms and their concerned parents wondering "what can they do to help their precious bundle of joy?"
In pediatrics, we often say “children are not little adults” but in the case of the common cold, they really are. They have the same symptoms, runny nose, red-rimmed eyes, cough and they just FEEL YUCKY! With those symptoms most babies are fussier than usual and don’t sleep well at night, which is just like an adult with a cold (or maybe just me). for an infant, they are usually up and down all night, don’t feed as well, and just want to be held a little more.
When an infant gets a cold it is not uncommon for them to run a fever along with the cold symptoms. This usually only lasts a day or two and then resolves, but the other common cold symptoms may last from seven to 10 days.
With a cold they may not want to nurse or drink their bottle as well as they have a hard time breathing and sucking. This leads to a cranky baby, who may take less with each feeding, but will need to eat more often.
It is important to make sure that they stay hydrated. fluids are the most important thing. If your baby is having difficulty taking the bottle or latching on due to the congestion , you could feed with a katori spoon or a paladey with gaps in between . small frequent feeds will do the job.
Place the tip of the bulb syringe inside the baby’s nostril to remove mucous and help them breath and eat. You may also use a little salt water nose drops to squirt up their nose to help the mucous come out.
It also helps to get a mist humidifier to place in the room at night to help put some moisture in the air while the heat is running and the air is dry. The mist will also help alleviate some of the thicker mucous and also help the cough that accompanies the cold.
The most important thing to watch for is any sign of respiratory distress. A child’s breathing may “sound noisy” but it is important once again to look at their chest to make sure that they are not using those muscles between the ribs and “pulling” when they are breathing.
Coughs are also protective in that they help move mucous and keep the airway clear to prevent pneumonia. Lastly, your child should look a little better after the first several days of their cold. They should not develop fever later in the cold, and if they do it would be worth a pediatrician visit to check their ears. Not every baby with a cold gets an ear infection and they usually develop after they have had several days of cold symptoms, and not on the first day of a cold.

Hello, My son is 23 months old (Soon 2 yrs old). He doesnt talk much. Just mama papa, kaka, aaoo, kind of 4-5 words. He is smart and eats well. His height has also not increased much in last one year is too late for development milestones? Please tell me if he needs some tests/treatment.

Normally children will speak 2 to 3 word sentences at that age. Slight delay isn't a problem. If the height is around 87 cms, 2 cms more or less it's normal.

Passing urine frequently tells you that he is getting good amount of milk. Passing stools soon after feeding is exaggerated gastrocolic reflex. It's normal as long as the consistency is semisolid and golden yellow in colour.

Dear Sir/ madam, I have blessed with a daughter on 14. 10. 2016, just 5 days before. Her bilirubin (Total) shows 12. 2. Is it dangerous for her? What is the control (specified) limit for bilirubin (jaundice) in new born babies? What to do now for her treatment? Some doctors suggested for sun bath & antibiotic injections (half dose twice a day) for 5 days, is it safe for a 5 days baby girl? Please suggest, I'm very nervous.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Yu have to tell her weight to see if the bilirubin is in normal range as it is related to weight when we take decision. Sun bath is fine and this is not at dangerou level if she is is adequately big . It is called physiological jaundice and is seen many babies . On fifth day 12 mg./dl is not serious

If he is active and feeding well doing all activities normal than you should not worry because some children have tendency to remain warm due to high basic metabolic rate but no problem in vitamin d deficiency body remains warm give vitamin d drops regularly. In hyperthyroidism which is rare body can be warm.
