Injuries - How to Prevent Them in Toddlers

Injuries - How to Prevent Them in Toddlers

With the word accident, the first thing that comes to our mind is a traffic accident or an outdoor accident. We all may usually relate accidents with outdoor hazards, but little do we realize that the place that we consider to be the safest, that is, our homes, has a number of hazards itself. Accidents at home are usually caused due to negligence. Children are especially prone to be hurt by such accidents. Just like we stay careful outside our home, it is also important to maintain safety indoors to prevent accidents.

Here are some of the common accidents that occur mostly to children along with the preventive steps that can help you to avoid them:

1. Fall: Falling is one of the most common accidents that children experience. There may be a number of factors such as objects scattered on the floor, the floor being slippery, unstable walking of the child, lack of supervision, etc.
Prevention

  • Keep floors clean, dry and free from unnecessary obstructions.
  • Always keep a check on your toddler as he learns to walk
  • Do not keep babies unattended when they are sitting on a high surface
  • Keep the bed rail of the baby cot raised whenever the child is in it

2. Choking: Choking is a serious condition that leads to breathlessness due to accidental swallowing of foods or objects, covering head by blankets, strangulation, etc.
Prevention:

  • Avoid toys that have small detachable parts
  • Keep a watch on your child when he/she plays with small objects
  • Keep children away from buckets or tubs filled with water
  • Never allow your children to play while eating

3. Burns: Burns may occur from contact with hot objects, hot water or fire.
Prevention:

  • Make sure that you don't hold a child and a hot object or beverage at the same time
  • Make sure that your child doesn't enter the kitchen without supervision
  • While preparing warm water for bathing your child in, always check the water temperature beforehand

4. Poisoning: Poisoning takes place under conditions of food poisoning or accidental swallowing of harmful substances like detergents, insecticides or drugs.
Prevention:

  • Keep all medicines, detergents, soaps and chemicals out of the child's reach 
  • Store all chemicals and toxic substances in their respective containers or make sure the containers are labelled properly
  • Always keep a first-aid box ready at hand if you have a child at home. For severe conditions talk to a doctor or visit a hospital immediately.

Why Homeopathy Is Best Applied in Childhood?

Why Homeopathy Is Best Applied in Childhood?

Homeopathy is a natural and mild form of medication. The remedies are natural substances, which have been diluted and potentized. Homeopathic medicines are best applied during childhood and work very effectively with children. A child's self-defense or immunity gets stimulated naturally towards a healthier state without any kind of side effects. Homeopathic remedies are very safe, effective and mild. They are especially effective for children, on the grounds that the remedies work by stimulating vitality of a child's body. Children have a higher vitality naturally and thus, homeopathic medicines are extra effective during childhood. Moreover, homeopathic medicines are soft globules, which dissolve in the mouth. They are easy to take and have a sweet, pleasant taste as well.

Here is a list of diseases and disorders, which are common during the childhood along with their homeopathic remedies.

Teething:

  1. Chamomilla is used in case of painful teething during childhood. It is used when a child has got one hot cheek and one cold cheek.
  2. Coffea Cruda may be used to treat restlessness in teething children.
  3. Calcarea Phosphorica is another homeopathic remedy used for delayed and difficult teething in children.

Colic:

  1. Dioscorea is the common homeopathic medicine for treating colic cramps in the abdomen.
  2. Colocynthis is also used to relieve intense cramps and pain in children. The irritability factor of the pain is treated.
  3. Magnesia Phosphorica treats colics with spasmodic or intermittent characteristics.

Fever:

  1. Aconite is an effective homeopathic remedy for treating sudden fever. The child's skin is likely to be hot, and the temperature of the cheeks may differ.
  2. Ferrum Phosphoricum is used for treating fever that occurs due to inflammatory problems. This kind of fever gives you pale, red cheeks.

Irritability and restlessness:

  1. Passiflora is an ideal homeopathic relaxant for children.
  2. Avena Sativa is used when a child cannot sleep due to restlessness.
  3. Kali Phosphorica treats restlessness in children occurring because of over stimulation.
  4. Magnesia Phosphorica and Natrum Phosphoricum are other homeopathic medicines, which act as relaxants.

Cough and Cold:

  1. Ipecac is the best homeopathic remedy for constant coughing along with nausea.
  2. Aconitum Napellus is used when a child wakes up from sleep with a dry, hoarse cough.
  3. Spongia Tosta cures cold, croup and cough which start from the throat.
  4. Antimonium Tartaricum is the homeopathic medicine used when mucous accumulates in the chest, giving rise to coughing.

Homeopathy is best applied in childhood as a child is at risk of developing a number of diseases. A child's body is delicate and much more sensitive than adults and is prone to getting affected easily. Moreover, homeopathy is natural and is the safest form of medicine for children. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

My Daughter 19 months old, started high fever for 101 degree two days ago. Consulted Paediatrician and Medication started with P125, Sinarest (both at different time) levolin and Fabilac. But she is getting high fever often with a light shiver, body get high heat but no all over, below abdomen it is chill, it varies in upper body. No Diarrhoea, Vomit (only water) was twice at the time of shiver. Within 2 hours she is normal. PD says it would be there till Friday. But doubt about the high fever but temperature varies, esp head get too high temp and her eyes blinks erratically. Is it a viral fever or anything else.

Generally a viral fever may last upto 4 - 5 days and in rare cases can last upto a week also, keep giving paracetamol evry 4-6 hours so that temperature is under control. If fever goes beyond 4-5 days you can get few blood test done to rule out any bacterial infection, if its bacterial infection, need to start on course of antibiotics which your pd will prescribe accordingly.

If your baby is exclusively breastfed, it doesn't matter if he does not pass stool everyday. Some breastfed babies go without passing stools for a week, but it is perfectly normal provided they are exclusively breastfed.

Hi lybrate-user! Good that you have come forward to find a solution for your son at this initial stage, bcoz this problem has to be sorted out as soon as possible. First you need to encourage him to talk with neighbours from small age to Adults, keep encouraging. Try to make him participate in social activities. Slowly you can find out boys of his kind to interact, allow him to interact. Just closely watch his behavior, try to find if he has any different kind of behavior that affects him from having a healthy relationship. First encourage him to make friends with guys who are also comfortable and adjusting with his relationship. If any problem try to correct him by talking to him in a friendly way. Just teach him how he needs to have friends. If you still find there is difficulty in him getting along with others, you can seek a Professional Psychologist help to overcome this problem at your locality. If you are interested you can contact me either through text chat or online consultation yes you are most welcome. The more you allow him to interact with guys of good character, he will definitely find good friends, but you can monitor him for some days just to help or train him to find friends. No worries. Console him. Bring confidence in him. Do not allow him to feel for unnecessary things (though it is necessary he need not feel since this can be solved) With regards,

Hi, You can start cow's milk slowly and see how your children respond to it - whether they are able to digest it well or not. If not, you can dilute it a little, boil it and cool it and then feed your children. Also consult your gynae doctor.

Hi! My sister gave a birth to baby boy on 14.8.17 after almost ten hours of birth baby passed his stool and thereafter for three consecutive days baby passed his stool twice or thrice times a day. To our surprise for the last 4 to 5 days baby is not passing stool at all though urinating normally. Even we gave formula milk two times a day (40 ml) and the baby has been on regular intervals of two hours breast feed too. It has become major concern for us why the baby is not passing stool.

Hello lybrate-user. Congrats for little bundle of joy. Breastmilk is easy to digest and 100 %used by body so it is not common for breastfeed babies to pass stool even once in a week. So if baby is passing urine 6-7 times a day and is otherwise comfortable don't worry about stool. Try to avoid formula and give exclusive breastfeeding as latter has many health benefits.

Many children complain pain in the legs especially in the night. It's called growing pain. You can apply some analgesic balms and can give some analgesic like paracetamol if the pain is more.
