If you are sure that he is allergic to cow's milk causing rash and blisters, stop it. After stopping milk, rash and blisters are diminished. If these are increasing, consult Pediatrician.

No what your MIL says is old and baseless belief. It is normal for babies to wake up in between and trouble their mothers. It is part of motherhood! You can take rest/sleep when you are tired in afternoon.

Be a Knight in Smiling Armour With a Pre-Wedding Dental Visit!

Why a dental visit before your wedding day is essential

It's your wedding clothes trial and after multiple designers visits, a blur of fabrics and embroideries, finally you face the mirror looking like a charming prince! you can't get your eyes off yourself the smart, handsome, be jeweled and crowned silhouette you get closer to your reflection and you smile to yourself.

To your utter dismay-staring back at you is a gaping black hole in your yellow looking teeth- a stark contrast against your beautiful pearl white sherwani!

Among things that you don't know or care about in this wedding planning charade, one thing you do know for sure is that while the bride will outshine you, the pictures will last forever, and a yellow smile with a black blemish on a white sherwani is not the kind of shame you're willing to live through!

So if you're a groom-to-be your trial date shouldn't be the day you realize your smile must live up to the bright and momentous occasion that you're preparing for!

While the metrosexual man of today has even his pre-wedding skin treatments lined up, for the more macho or masculine ones at least getting their smile right can make a huge difference!

So here's a quick checklist to know if you qualify for dental treatment and if you should visit before your wedding day

Are you happy with your smile?
Are your teeth crowded?
Are your teeth yellow or dull?
Can you see any brown or black stains on your teeth?

Dental treatment:
A dental visit according to popular misconception is no unpleasant ordeal!

With the latest technology drill free cavities, bladeless surgeries, and painless extractions have become a reality.

So whatever be your woe, a variety of treatment solutions can be planned and customised to transforming your smile if you're well in time.

Having a dental partner through it all works best for most people and who better than your future life partner to get you through an intimate experience like your appointment.

Top 3 reasons for a couple's pre-wedding dental appointment

You want a million dollar smile on your big day
Long pending issues that rather be dealt with while you're working on looking your best -both within and without Avoiding unhappy toothaches during your happiest times be it wedding or honeymoon

Did your dentist tell you stronger teeth make for hotter men!

Stay happy and flash that smile with confidence after your dental appointment.

Do let me know what you think!

My son got an episode of febrile seizure (30sec to 1 min duration) at 18 months. Later, the doctor advised for immediate fever medication and tepid sponging whenever he develops fever. Now, at 21 months, we took him to the hospital because of fever again (no seizure), doctor adviced to give him frisium also whenever he develops fever. Frisium 5m bad as divided doses. I want to know if there are any side effects for frisium and will it effect the extremely active nature of my son.(read online). Also, do febrile seizures cause any permanent problem and will he become more prone to epilepsy later in life? kindly help!

A febrile seizure, or febrile convulsion, is an epileptic fit with a high body temperature. There is no serious underlying health issue. Occur 6 months and 5 years. These seizures are very short lasting. Baby is normal after that completely. You are doing well in tepid sponging, also give paracetamol 15mg/kg. Diazepam pediatric suppository may be used at the onset of convulsions, and seizure can be controlled using diazepam iv. Many physicians are also using frisium as a precautionary measure and to alleviate parental anxiety! simple febrile seizures donot need investigations. I agree with Dr. Manu sharma that it is a common problem and settles down after 5 years.

How to encourage healthy eating habits in your toddler

DNB Paediatrics, DCH, MBBS
Pediatrician
Ask Free Question
Whether you have a toddler or a teen, I believe, five of the best strategies to improve nutrition and encourage smart eating habits in kids would be:

1. Have regular family meals.

2. Serve a variety of healthy foods and snacks.

3. Be a role model by eating healthy yourself.

4. Avoid battles over food.

5. Make eating a playtime and probably a way of spending quality time with your kids. Involve them in the process.

Kids who take part in regular family meals are also:

More likely to eat fruits, vegetables, and grains

Less likely to snack on unhealthy foods

Less likely to smoke, use marijuana, or drink alcohol

You could follow these basic guidelines:

1. Work fruits and vegetables into the daily routine, aiming for the goal of at least five servings a day.

2. Make it easy for kids to choose healthy snacks by keeping fruits and vegetables on hand and ready to eat. Other good snacks include low-fat yogurt, peanut butter and celery, or whole-grain crackers.

3. Serve lean meats and other good sources of protein, such as fish, eggs, beans, soya, tofu.

4. Choose whole-grain breads and cereals so kids get more fiber.

5. Limit fat intake by avoiding fried foods and choosing healthier cooking methods, such as broiling, grilling, roasting, and steaming. Choose low-fat or nonfat dairy products.

6. Limit fast food and low-nutrient snacks, such as chips and candy. But don't completely ban favorite snacks from your home. Instead, make them" once-in-a-while" foods, so kids don't feel deprived.

7. Limit sugary drinks, such as soda and fruit-flavored drinks. Serve water and low-fat milk instead.

And above all ----- be a role model

The best way for you to encourage healthy eating is to eat well yourself!

That's all for now, for my next dose (article. Stay tuned!
