Undescended testis should be corrected anytime after 1st year. Prolonged exposure of testis to a high intra abdominal temperature is harmful.

General Physician,
ARE YOU WORRIED THAT YOUR BABY VOMITS ALL THE MILK IT TAKES.
Most mothers complain this.Whereas the real condition in majority of cases is not a disease "vomiting" READ ON. YOur baby is possetting.

Possetting
What is possetting?

Possetting is normal in small babies. It's when small amounts of milk are brought back up. It's often why parents have a cloth with them after a feed to catch the posset which often bubbles through baby's lips after a feed


What causes possetting?

Often when your baby's stomach is full, milk can come back up. Babies often posset a little when burping, bringing up the milk often with swallowed air or wind.

In a baby the muscular valve at the end of their food pipe, which acts to keep food in the stomach, hasn't developed properly yet.

What are the symptoms of possetting?

Bringing up about a few teaspoons worth of milk after a feed.

It's non-forceful and tends to dribble out.

How is possetting treated?

If it is just possetting your GP or health visitor will give you reassurance that is it quite normal.

They can also help establish if it is the more serious conditions of reflux or gastroesophageal reflux disease known as GERD.

What is reflux?

Reflux is more serious than possetting. It's when the stomach contents are regurgitated.

When acid from the baby's stomach comes up as well as the milk, this can be painful. About half of babies will experience some form of reflux during their first year. As the muscular valve gets stronger, your baby is better at keeping food down.

How to tell the difference?

If your baby shows discomfort when feeding, such as arching away, refusing to feed and crying, it can be a sign of reflux. She may also frequently vomit or spit up more than normal possetting, and cough a lot, including at night, with no other sign of a cold.

If your baby displays any of the above symptoms check with your GP. Reflux is quite common. It tends to peak between one and four months and normally ends by 12-18 months.

How to alleviate reflux?

It can often be successfully controlled by simple remedies: For example:

More small feeds to prevent your baby's stomach getting too full.
Keeping him upright during and for at least half an hour after a feed.
Avoid tight clothing, particularly around your baby's stomach.
Ask your doctor or health visitor for advice.

Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

If reflux is very severe there can be complications like damage to the oesophagus ( oesophagus), or long-term problems and this is diagnosed as gastro-oesophageal reflux disease ( GERD).

Symptoms may include: vomiting, failure to put on weight, coughing and breathing problems.

If your baby vomits bile which is green, has repeated projectile vomiting or vomits blood seek medical advice straight away. Symptoms like bloody stools (poo), abdominal distention, excessive crying or if baby keeps refusing feeds may also be signs of GERD, and again should be checked by a medical professional promptly.

It is rare for infants to suffer from GERD but bringing milk up is very common for most babies, who tend to grow out of possetting or reflux by 12-18 months.

A nine month old is ready to eat from the family pot provided that the food is non spicy and wholesome. Offer the baby whatever is cooked in the house. Regular foods like dal, rice, khichri, mashed roti, boiled egg etc can be started. You can also give suji kheer, halwa, soups (Veg and non Veg) and chappatis soaked and mashed in dal,soup or dahi. A small amount of extra butter or ghee may be added to in the food. This adds to caloric value and helps the child gain weight. Fruits such as banana/mango can be given. Breast feeding should be continued.
7-8 kg at 9 months is good weight at this age. It is not necessary to add powdered badam etc. The tiny particles of badam can cause problems. Wait till the child at least one year old.

Hi your concern is totally valid, but the problem with extremly low birth weight babies is that even if they look good, there are chances they might go in apnea (sudden cessation of breathing) and they are prone to temp irreugalrities thats why doctors are not discharging the baby. I suggest let them do their work and take discharge are per the doctors advice.

Tonic - try with natural appetite booster named as syp. Aptivate (1 tsf) before major meal. But believe me you have to concentrate on calorie rich foods more rather than medicines as those are actually helpful. Medicines have short actions. Planned food and diet improves weight gain. Of-course timely vaccination is again another indirect help, which promotes better health by avoiding frequent infections. Regards.

I have a daughter age 10+years she has a problem of bed wet. wanted to get out from this problem please help me thank you.

M.D. Pediatrics
Pediatrician, Pune
This problem is called as Nocturnal Enuresis. Kindly get her Urine Routine and Urine Culture tested. Till then, make sure that she does not drink water atleast 2 hours prior hitting to bed. Start alarm technique, put alarm at around 2 am in morning and ask her to go to washroom. This will help her to pass residual volume. If you find, that she is bed wetting somewhere before 2 am then, adjust clock accordingly. Kindly visit your nearest pediatrician, as he is the best person to give medication. Hope this helps. Happy Parenting!

Hi lybrate-user to reduce belly fat you need to be particular about food choices & timings. Eat small & frequent meals. Include high fiber foods in your diet such as whole cereals & whole pulses. Drink plenty of water. Avoid refined foods from your diet such as maida, pasta. Keep check on your food intake.

Vomiting in Children Post Meals - 4 Common Reasons Why!

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics, Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Fellowship
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
Vomiting in Children Post Meals - 4 Common Reasons Why!

Children might vomit after meals due to various causes. While they may not be life threatening or potentially harmful to the child, getting to the bottom of the problem to deal with it is better, so as to prevent it from becoming a chronic problem is definitely vital.

Listed below are some of the most common reasons children might throw up:

  1. Gastroenteritis: This may be virus, bacteria and parasite induced. The best way to deal with it is to eat clean food and wash hands with an antiseptic soap prior to each meal. It is usually seen in combination with diarrhoea.
  2. Allergies: Some children who throw up might do so as it is allergy induced. To diagnose the cause of food induced vomiting, the allergens must be noticed as soon as possible as there might be more than one food ingredient causing the reaction in the child. Each time the child throws up, the parents must note down all the food ingredients consumed by the child. This helps the paediatrician in better diagnosing the underlying cause of vomiting. In children up to the age of 4, foods such as rice, poultry, milk and soy often act as triggers and it is called ‘food protein induced enterocolitis syndrome’ (FPIES).
  3. Backing up of food: Anti peristalsis or the backward movement of food along the digestive tract might happen in children for a host of reasons. The digestive tract has muscles which prevent the backward flow of food and instead, force the food downwards i.e. from mouth to anus. Due to children having weaker musculature in their digestive tract, regurgitation might be a frequent occurrence.
  4. Reflux: Swallowing large amounts of air while eating can make the child bloated leading to reflux. Reflux can also take place if the baby is being overfed.

If the child is frequently throwing up after meals, keeping them hydrated is of utmost importance. Unless a doctor prescribes them anti-vomiting medicines, they shouldn’t be administered to children. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pediatrician.

Technically, having a young baby doesn't bar your eligibility for chickenpox vaccine. However, small number of people can get a mild chickenpox like illness after getting vaccine. This chickenpox is contagious.

Two possiblities geographic tongue and other is oral thrush. Most probably it is geographic tongue, in which abnormal shapes appear on tongue but there is no problem with baby. These come and go, NO treatment is required. Oral thrush, there is watering of mouth and difficulty in feeding.

Normally 10% weight reduces upto 15 days, then gradually increases 25-30 gm per day. So your baby will start gaining weight now.
