Exclusive breast feeding babies may pass stool once in 3-4 days or 3-4 times a day both are normal. If you are giving formula then make sure your are giving right dilution. Crying may be due to hunger or discomfort like wet diaper, hence 1st check these things before going for medications.

Adenoids do not exist in nose. your problem is blocked n running nose. Saline nasal drop in each nostrils 3 to 4 times in a day may be helpful. Avoid dusting of powder n fibrous clothing or like, if using.

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.

MASLP

Consult a speech pathologist for assessment of speech & language skills. If only clarity i. E speech intelligibility is an issue or there is any lag in language needs to be confirmed. Treatment approach depends on severity of problem. Remedial measures will be discussed after diagnosis and frequency, duration of speech therapy needed will be estimated.

A 4 month old baby does 8-9 times a day and may not pass nothing for 2-3 dys is absolutely normal the potty is not watery, not large amount, not sticky every time and no blood. Applying heeng over navel has no advantage, ather they can bring infection while applying and ca cause irritation at that area. So, stopping its application is recommended.

Hello, ●New born baby is unable to distinguish between night & daytime. Hence, after few week, you have to educate the baby the difference between  day & night in order to establish sound sleep in the night. ●When its day, the baby should be brought in sun light to recognise the day time and similarly in night the baby should be kept in a dim. Light to recognise eving or night time. Her day should be brighter and the night be darker. ●This has to be ensured  that child is adequetly ,fed before going to bed & continued feeding 2 hrly. ●Some time the baby suffers from abdominal pain, earache,headache due to change in climate, cause her weep. ●  usually, we fail to assess the room- temprature being suitable for the baby to make her sleep, comfortably.Ac should be tuned & fan should be adjusted as per the need be. ● in the night while feeding the baby of your own  baby asleeps without taking sufficient quty of milk, makes her weep, again and again during sleep, please keep checking the fact & adjusted as the condition warants. Homoeopathically,  your baby might be nurtured, successfully. Your feedback is solicited to followup your baby. The care.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) - A Guide!

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) - A Guide!

Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is among the most common neurobehavioral disorders presenting for treatment in children and adolescents. ADHD is often chronic with prominent symptoms and impairment spanning into adulthood. ADHD is often associated with co-occurring disorders including disruptive, mood, anxiety, and substance abuse. The diagnosis of ADHD is clinically established by review of symptoms and impairment. The biological underpinning of the disorder is supported by genetic, neuroimaging, neurochemistry and neuropsychological data. Consideration of all aspects of an individual’s life needs to be considered in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD. 

Multimodal treatment includes educational, family, and individual support. Psychotherapy alone and in combination with medication is helpful for ADHD and comorbid problems. Pharmacotherapy including stimulants, noradrenergic agents, alpha agonists, and antidepressants plays a fundamental role in the long-term management of ADHD across the lifespan. 

The management of ADHD includes consideration of two major areas: non-pharmacological (educational remediation, individual and family psychotherapy) and pharmacotherapy.

I personally support Psychotherapy. Specialized educational planning based on the child’s difficulties is necessary in a majority of cases. Since learning disorders co-occur in one-third of ADHD youth, ADHD individuals should be screened and appropriate individualised educational plans developed. Educational adjustments should be considered in individuals with ADHD with difficulties in behavioral or academic performance. Increased structure, predictable routine, learning aids, resource room time, and checked homework are among typical educational considerations in these individuals. Similar modifications in the home environment should be undertaken to optimize the ability to complete homework. For youth, frequent parental communication with the school about the child’s progress is essential. 

Symptoms in children and teenagers 

The symptoms of ADHD in children and teenagers are well defined, and they're usually noticeable before the age of six. They occur in more than one situation, such as at home and at school. The main signs of each behavioural problem are detailed below:

  1. Inattentiveness: having a short attention span and being easily distracted making careless mistakes – for example, in schoolwork appearing forgetful or losing things being unable to stick at tasks that are tedious or time-consuming appearing to be unable to listen to or carry out instructions constantly changing activity or task having difficulty organising tasks 

  2. Hyperactivity and impulsiveness: being unable to sit still, especially in calm or quiet surroundings constantly fidgeting being unable to concentrate on tasks excessive physical movement excessive talking being unable to wait their turn acting without thinking interrupting conversations little or no sense of danger 

These symptoms can cause significant problems in a child's life, such as underachievement at school, poor social interaction with other children and adults, and problems with discipline. 

Related conditions in children and teenagers 

Although not always the case, some children may also have signs of other problems or conditions alongside ADHD, such as: 

  • anxiety disorder – which causes your child to worry and be nervous much of the time; it may also cause physical symptoms, such as a rapid heartbeat, sweating and dizziness 

  • oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) – this is defined by negative and disruptive behaviour, particularly towards authority figures, such as parents and teachers 

  • conduct disorder – this often involves a tendency towards highly antisocial behaviour, such as stealing, fighting, vandalism and harming people or animals 

  • depression 

  • sleep problems – finding it difficult to get to sleep at night, and having irregular sleeping patterns 

  • autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) – this affects social interaction, communication, interests and behaviour 

  • epilepsy – a condition that affects the brain and causes repeated fits or seizures 

  • Tourette’s syndrome – a condition of the nervous system, characterised by a combination of involuntary noises and movements called tics 

  • learning difficulties – such as dyslexia Symptoms in adults In adults, the symptoms of ADHD are more difficult to define. This is largely due to a lack of research into adults with ADHD. 

ADHD is a developmental disorder; it's believed that it can't develop in adults without it first appearing during childhood. But it's known that symptoms of ADHD often persist from childhood into a person's teenage years, and then adulthood. Any additional problems or conditions experienced by children with ADHD, such as depression or dyslexia, may also continue into adulthood. By the age of 25, an estimated 15% of people diagnosed with ADHD as children still have a full range of symptoms, and 65% still have some symptoms that affect their daily lives. The symptoms in children and teenagers, which are listed above, is sometimes also applied to adults with possible ADHD. But some specialists say that the way in which inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness affect adults can be very different from the way they affect children. For example, hyperactivity tends to decrease in adults, while inattentiveness tends to get worse as the pressure of adult life increases. Adult symptoms of ADHD also tend to be far more subtle than childhood symptoms. 

Some specialists have suggested the following list of symptoms associated with ADHD in adults: 

  • carelessness and lack of attention to detail 

  • continually starting new tasks before finishing old ones 

  • poor organisational skills 

  • inability to focus or prioritise 

  • continually losing or misplacing things 

  • forgetfulness 

  • restlessness and edginess 

  • difficulty keeping quiet and speaking out of turn 

  • blurting out responses and often interrupting others 

  • mood swings, irritability and a quick temper 

  • inability to deal with stress 

  • extreme impatience 

  • taking risks in activities, often with little or no regard for personal safety or the safety of others – for example, driving dangerously 

Additional problems in adults with ADHD As with ADHD in children and teenagers, ADHD in adults can occur alongside several related problems or conditions. One of the most common conditions is depression. Other conditions that adults may have alongside ADHD include: 

  • personality disorders – conditions in which an individual differs significantly from an average person, in terms of how they think, perceive, feel or relate to others 

  • bipolar disorder – a condition that affects your moods, which can swing from one extreme to another 

  • obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) – a condition that causes obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviour 

The behavioural problems associated with ADHD can also cause problems such as difficulties with relationships, social interaction, drugs and crime. Some adults with ADHD find it hard to find and stay in a job. If you notice any of the above in your child or yourself , it is worth making the effort and spending some time and money to have your child and or yourself assessed on a priority basis as ADHD causes neural changes in the brain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

Don't force for plain milk. Give him its products like curd kheer etc. Change of taste may be helpful. Adding anything isn't much useful. To know or assess gender of foetus is crime and inviting jail punishment. Take care of baby to come.
