Our baby is 3 months 15 days baby. Doctor say that Pneumococcal Vaccine is necessary for a baby. We are confused whether to take that vaccination. Please suggest whether this vaccine is necessary or not.

Our baby is 3 months 15 days baby. Doctor say that Pneumococcal Vaccine is necessary for a baby. We are confused whet...
Well its not mandatory to take a pneumococcal vaccine. Generally pneumococcal vaccine is given to prevent any infection caused by pneumococcus, there are 100+ strains of pneumococcus but this vaccine only provides resistance to infection cause by 13 strains. So the baby has still chance of getting infection from rest of the strains. Generally we recommend this vaccine to babies who are born premature and are at high risk of getting infection, like babies who often get ill having cough and cold or pneumonia. It is mandatory for persons travelling to usa, so if you plan to visit usa in future, get your baby vaccinated. If money is not an issue you can get baby vaccinated. If money is an issue you can skip doses for 1st year and get a single dose at 15 months, that would be enough for life long immunity. So its your decision depending on child health and history as well as your financial status. Hope I have solved your query.

Dyslexia - 9 Signs That Your Kid is Suffering from it!

Dyslexia - 9 Signs That Your Kid is Suffering from it!

Raising a child with dyslexia can stir up a lot of emotions. You may look ahead and wonder if this learning issue will affect your child's future. But dyslexia is not a prediction of failure. Dyslexia is quite common, and many successful individuals have dyslexia.

Research has proven that there are different ways of teaching that can help people with dyslexia succeed. There's a lot you can do as a parent too.


 

What are the symptoms of dyslexia?

Because dyslexia affects some people more severely than others, your child's symptoms may look different from those in another child. Some kids with dyslexia have trouble with reading and spelling. Others may struggle to write or to tell left from right.

Dyslexia can also make it difficult for people to express themselves clearly. It can be hard for them to structure their thoughts during conversation. They may have trouble finding the right words to say.

Others struggle to understand what they're hearing. This is especially true when someone uses nonliteral language such as jokes and sarcasm.

The signs you see may also look different at various ages. Some of the warning signs for dyslexia, such as a speech delay, appear before a child reaches kindergarten. More often, though, dyslexia is identified in grade school. As schoolwork gets more demanding, trouble processing language becomes more apparent.


 

Here are some signs to look out for:

  1. Warning Signs in Preschool or Kindergarten

  2. Has trouble recognizing the letters of the alphabet

  3. Struggles to match letters to sounds, such as not knowing what sounds b or h make

  4. Has difficulty blending sounds into words, such as connecting C-H-A-T to the word chat

  5. Struggles to pronounce words correctly, such as saying 'mawn lower' instead of 'lawn mower'

  6. Has difficulty learning new words

  7. Has a smaller vocabulary than other kids the same age

  8. Has trouble learning to count or say the days of the week and other common word sequences

  9. Has trouble rhyming


 

Warning Signs in Grade School or Middle School

  1. Struggles with reading and spelling

  2. Confuses the order of letters, such as writing 'left' instead of 'felt'

  3. Has trouble remembering facts and numbers

  4. Has difficulty gripping a pencil

  5. Has difficulty using proper grammar

  6. Has trouble learning new skills and relies heavily on memorization

  7. Gets tripped up by word problems in math

  8. Has a tough time sounding out unfamiliar words

  9. Has trouble following a sequence of directions


 

Warning Signs in High School

  1. Struggles with reading out loud

  2. Doesn't read at the expected grade level

  3. Has trouble understanding jokes or idioms

  4. Has difficulty organizing and managing time

  5. Struggles to summarize a story

What can be done at home for dyslexia?

Helping your child with dyslexia can be a challenge, particularly if you're never been confident in your own reading and writing skills. But you don't have to be an expert to help work on certain skills or strengthen your child's self-esteem.

Keep in mind that kids (and families) are all different, so not all options will work for you. Don't panic if the first strategies you try aren't effective. You may need to try several approaches to find what works best for your child. Here are some things you can try at home:

  • Read out loud every day

  • Tap into your child's interests

  • Use audiobooks

  • Look for apps and other high-tech help

  • Focus on effort, not outcome

  • Make your home reader-friendly

  • Boost confidence


 

What can make the journey easier?

Dyslexia can present challenges for your child and for you. But with the proper support, almost all people with dyslexia can become accurate readers. Your involvement will help tremendously.

Wherever you are in your journey, whether you're just starting out or are well on your way, this site can help you find more ways to support your child. Here are a few things that can help make the journey easier:

  • Connect with other parents. Remember that you're not alone. Use our safe online community to find parents like you.

  • Get behavior advice. Parenting Coach offers expert-approved strategies on a variety of issues that can affect children with dyslexia, including trouble with time management, anxiety and fear, frustration and low self-esteem.

  • Build a support plan. Come up with a game plan and anticipate what lies ahead.

Understanding dyslexia and looking for ways to help your child is an important first step. There's a lot you can do just don't feel you have to do everything all at once. Pace yourself. If you try a bunch of strategies at the same time, it might be hard to figure out which ones are working. And do your best to stay positive. Your love and support can make a big difference in your child's life. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can opt for appointments at clinic or online over here.

Wheezing in children is a very common problem now and many children grow out of it with age. Nebulizer is a safe treatment for wheezing and it itself does not cause or leads to asthma.

Hi lybrate user, you have delivered prematurely and since baby is born with less weight she needs to be care with incubator and necessary management of arising complaints. Once she picks up weight and breaths normally she will be discharged. Meanwhile your milk can be sucked with breast pump and fed to baby.

I think by blood you mean that stool has got something red in it. I would advise you to first get the stool tested for blood at a pathology lab near you. Blood in an infant's stool could be because of intestinal infection if feed hygiene is improper. Another important cause would be a small mass of tissue called polyp inside the intestine. If stool test confirms the presence of blood, please see a paediatrician in person.

There is no need to give Livesafe or anything and in younger age this may not be a problem and slowly you can make her understand the need for vegetables and a balanced diet

My son who is 14 years old has been running a few 10km races. He cycles 4 km everyday. He wants to participate in a 21 km run. He would be jogging and walking alternately (ie not running the entire 21 K). Is it safe for him to participate? Any precautions? Any inputs/ advice would be greatly valued. Thank you.
