If legs widening is not congenital, it is usually due to vitamin D deficiency particularly in poor family. Vitamin D 6oooo iu once in a week for 3 weeks and Calcium tab 2 times in a day may be given after seeing blood report. Sun exposure of body is useful.

Hi doctor, my baby is 3 months old. He is having slow weight gain and looking so lean. His birth weight is 3.4 kg and now he is 5.2 kg. Is it normal? I am on breastfeeding. He is not finishing one breast completely. He is taking only foremilk and not hindmilk. He is very lazy to suck and sleeps often in the breast. After feeding I used to pump to remove the hindmilk. Please suggest what to be done?

His weight is ok. You have to tickle him at sole or ears to wake him and he should suck for at least 10min at each breast.

Hello. Sorry to hear about your health ailment. You need to be specific in which type of hepatitis virus you are infected with .If its A or D or E you can definitely breastfeed. If its B virus then also you can breastfeed since child must be vaccinated against that virus by now. So don't worry and continue breastfeefing.

My daughter is 7 years old and she is having bed wetting problem. Please do suggest me what should I do ?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
Is it recent or from the beginning? if recent, get her urine tested, if normal, then local irritation is the cause. If since birth, don't panic. Some children take a longer time to b continent. Make some lifestyle changes:- 1. Dinner and bed time shud b atleast 2 hrs apart. 2. Do not give milk or any fluid bfore bed. 3. Make sure she passes urine just bfore bed. 4. It is seen that kids usually pass urine in sleep at a fixed time gap, so you have to time it, and then wake her up just before that time period to visit the bathroom. All these measures usually help, but if nothing works (in case of bed wetting since birth), try homoeopathy.

If you have not yet started weaning, do it now to start with semi solids nutritious with added ghee n dairy milk with spoon not bottle. Continue breastfeeding. Watch for green stool to change its colour. Expected wt at this age is about 8 kg.

My son is 4 year old and many time he is suffering blood from nose. Last night my son suffering blood from nose around 4 a. M around 15 drops of blood so after some time stop blood after he lay down straight. But in morning around 8 a. M again blood come from nose. Please explain what is the reason and solution for it.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
The most common cause of bleeding from nose in the warm environment is drying of nasal mucosa and picking of the nose. Teach him to avoid nose prick,give plenty of fluids.Pinch the nose for few minutes when it starts bleeding and put nasal decongestant drop 4-6 times a day for 4-5 days. Regards

My daughter is 8 years old and weighs only 20 kgs. She is never interested in eating, be it anything. Capacity of food intake is very low and so she is not that much energetic & active as she should be in this age. Kindly suggest what to do in this as supplements and tonics will do the needful or any other way so that can eat properly own her own and deficiencies can be done away with.

Dear lybrate-user Your daughter is underweight for her age. Be innovative in her foods. Include vegetables in her paranthas, idlis, sandwiches and cutlets. U can include more proteins in her diet like milk, paneer, soya, egg. Fresh fruits should be given. Make sure she is not eating junk food because it effects the appetite and hinders absorption of vitamins in the body.

Must Have Brain Foods for Your Kids!

M.Phil biotech and PGD Dietitics

Must Have Brain Foods for Your Kids!

Early childhood is a time when the brain develops rapidly and nutrition is an important part of healthy brain development. It is important for children to eat a variety of foods that can provide them with the proper intake of carbohydrate, protein, good fats, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. There is a very strong mind-gut connection; therefore focusing on the food you choose to complete the nutritional needs of your child can make a great difference in their brain function.

Certain foods are better for our brains than others, these brain foods may help boost a child's brain growth and even improve the memory and cognitive development.

During infancy, the amino acids and fatty acids in breast milk are ideal for optimal brain development. The brain continues to grow throughout early childhood and children who do no consume a balanced diet are at risk of developing mental retardation and behavioral problem.

10 brain foods to feed the mind and body properly:

1. Whole grains: Brain needs a consistent supply of glucose, thus foods those are high in refined sugars and carbohydrates leads to rapid fluctuation in blood glucose levels and the brain doesn't get the steady fuel supply and energy for proper functioning, therefore to nourish the most active part of body include whole-grain breads, oatmeal, roasted grains in the diet of children for regular release of glucose in body. Oats are also rich in vitamin-B, Vitamin-E, potassium and zinc.

2. Eggs: The protein and nutrients in eggs help kids concentrate because the egg yolks are packed with choline which boosts memory. Eggs are also rich in protein, which provides energy to help the brain stay alert longer.

3. Fish: Fish is a good source of vitamin D and omega-3s, which protect the brain from declining mental skills and memory loss. Salmon, tuna, and sardines are all rich in Omega-3s. The more Omega-3s we can get to the brain, the better it will function and the better kids will be able to focus.

4. Seeds: Packed with protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. Seeds may boost mood and keep your nervous system in check. For example sunflower seed butter as they are rich in folate, vitamin E and selenium and are safe for nut-free zones.try to include seeds directly to the meals.

5. Iron is important for brain development: Preschoolers and toddlers typically eat less iron-rich foods than they did in infancy. In addition, the iron that children get is usually non-Heme iron (from plant sources,) which has lower availability than heme iron (from animal source).sources beef, nuts and dark leafy vegetable (spinach) and tofu.

6. Milk and Yoghurt: Milk and yoghurt contains healthy fats and proteins those are important for brain health. The majority of the brain is made up of fat, so it is no wonder healthy fat is important to feed the developing brain. Protein is important as it can help brain cells send and receive information effectively. Yoghurt also contains good bacteria that will help boost your child's immune system as well as aid digestion, children need higher dose of vitamin D, which is present in dairy and its products.

7. Organic Foods and leafy vegetables: These organic foods are free from pesticides and insecticides and preservatives and do not cause neurodevelopment problems in children, which will impair proper brain functioning. Green leafy vegetables are loaded with vitamin A and K; these keep inflammation at bay .e.g. Spinach, kale, lettuce.

8. Walnuts: The high level of antioxidants, vitamin and minerals in walnuts improves the cognitive health of kids and improve their mental alertness also.

9. Colorful veggies: Vegetables with a rich, deep color such as tomatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, carrots, and spinach are the best sources of antioxidants that support brain health and keep brain cells strong. These foods can be given from weaning age.

10. Berries: The color of the food tells the nutritional value of it. All the berries like strawberry, cherries, blueberries and blackberries have intense color are especially rich in vitamin C and high levels of antioxidants. Blueberries have high levels of Gallic acid, which boost memory by preventing degeneration of brain cells.

So, go ahead and try to include different food group to your Child's plate for a better performance.

These scars are scaling, oily yellowish. It may be cradle cap which usually lasts up to 6 months of age, requires no treatment except you may wash it with baby shampoo. Some suggest to remove it gently but I personally feel not to scrub it. Else consult either pediatrician or dermatologist.

Need not worry this is a common problem in children of this age group. You can use dulcolax paediatric per rectal suppository, which you need to insert in the anus (rectal opening) better to get it done under supervision, take help of a nurse. You can use duphalac syrup also.

If it is not causing any difficulty or extra strain, you may lift. It would vary from person to person. Feeding or not feeding is not an issue.

Hello , dandruff is basically a fungal infection of the scalp . To avoid getting dandruff , stop oiling especially when you feel the scalp is itchy and flaky as that will aggravate the condition . For now you could apply an anti dandruff shampoo like scalpe etc on the baby's head and leave it for about a minute and then wash it off backwards so it does not go into the eyes of the baby .Use the shampoo twice a week for 4 weeks . Also never tie the hair when wet. Hope that helps !
