As you describe it may be Febrile Convulsion, convulsion (which is also called as "Kheech" Mirky" or "Zatke ki bimari") after high grade fever. Febrile convulsion is common in children age 6 months to 6 yrs. If there is not loss of consciousness or other complication, no need do any further investigation. DILANTIN is anti-convulsion medication. It is not recommended to give long term anti-convulsion medication like DILANTIN (Phenytoin) for simple febrile convulsion.

Thumb Sucking

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Thumb Sucking

Most children stop sucking on thumbs, pacifiers or other objects on their own between 2 and 4 years of age. No harm is done to their teeth or jaws until permanent teeth start to erupt. The only time it might cause concern is if it goes on beyond 6 to 8 years of age. At this time, it may affect the shape of the oral cavity or dentition.
Thumbsucking leads to Open bite, a high arched palate because of the pressure created in the mouth . This habit can also cause the maxillary central incisors to tip labially and the mandibilar incisors to tip lingually as the thumb rests on them during the course of sucking. Aside from the damaging physical aspects of thumb sucking, there are also additional risks, which unfortunately, are present at all ages. These include increased risk of infection from communicable diseases, due to the simple fact that non-sterile thumbs are covered with infectious agents, as well as many social implications. Some children experience social difficulties, as often children are taunted by their peers for engaging in what they can consider to be an “immature” habit. This taunting often results the child being rejected by the group or being subjected to ridicule by their peers, which can cause understandable psychological stress.

To prevent their children from sucking their thumbs some parents use bitterants or piquant substances on their child's hands.Parents could get a series of sharp prongs known as "hay-rakes" cemented to a child's teeth to discourage sucking

Praise children for not sucking, instead of scolding them when they do.
If a child is sucking its thumb when feeling insecure or needing comfort, focus instead on correcting the cause of the anxiety and provide comfort to your child.
If a child is sucking on its thumb because of boredom, try getting the child's attention with a fun activity.
Involve older children in the selection of a means to cease thumb sucking.
The pediatric dentist can offer encouragement to a child and explain what could happen to its teeth if it does not stop sucking.
Only if these tips are ineffective, remind the child of its habit by bandaging the thumb or putting a sock/glove on the hand at night.

My daughter is just 2 months old. She has a preference for putting her head towards the right side. While I turn it to the left every now and then, she keeps it there for a short while and turns back to her right. I'm now noticing a slight difference in the shape on the left and right. She doesn't like to use a horse shoe pillow and gets rashes with the mustard seed pillow. Will the shape of her head become permanent as it is now or will it change and get well rounded once she's sitting up and moving around more. I have received mixed responses to this, hence wanted to check.

Don't worry. Its because of the shape. Try to keep her head depends upon all sides. U can do one thing put some pillow or something which keeps it head opposite side. Also during day time when she awake keep bright colours toy or things on side left. So she keep seeing on that and rotate it to all side. She is just 2 months so not to worry about shape of head as head bones are still not fused which will fuse at around 1-1.5 yrs,but try this things if still shape become unequal then other methods are there.

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY CHILDS TEETH???

BDS
Dentist, Chennai
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY CHILDS TEETH???
Kids have all their baby teeth by age 3. These are called Primary teeth. Baby teeth start falling out around age 6; that’s when the permanent, or adult teeth start coming in. gaps between baby teeth are normal. They make room for the permanent teeth. Most permanent teeth come in by age 13

Tips to keep kids teeth healthy and strong:

0-2yrs
• Wipe gums with a wash cloth after feeding to avoid plaque that can cause tooth decay
• Start brushing twice daily using soft bristle tooth brush once first primary tooth erupts

3-5years
• Start using fluoride toothpaste at age 3- use only pea- sized amount. Make sure your child spits it out after brushing
• Try to break thumb sucking and pacifier habits by age 4

6-9 years
• Start flossing as soon as teeth touch/ contact each other
• Until children are able to practice proper oral health habits alone, parents should help their child brush and floss twice a day

10-12years
• Require children who plays support to wear a mouthguard to protect their smile

13+ years
• Parents can encourage their teens by reminding them that a healthy smile and fresh breath will help them look and feel their best.

Quick tips
1. Schedule your first dental appointment before child’s first birthday.
2. Start visiting your dentist every 6 months.

Little children can`t differentiate in between day and night you need to get him to develop habbit. Darken the room at particular time every day, switch off tv, put away mobile phone and sleep with baby. Gradually the child will learn.

An 8-12 months old baby should be made to eat diced fruits, cooked and green vegetables, yoghurt, potatoes, cereal and eggs, since they are all healthy foods rich in various vitamins and minerals.
