My baby daughter (1 years 10 months old) doesn't eat and drink anything except milk. A few months earlier she used to eat rice, vegetables, fish, egg, fruits but suddenly stopped eating. When I force her to eat she cries her lungs out. I am really concerned about her health. Please help me out. Thanks.

Do not force her eat something. At this age kid have something called temper tantrums. By this she will try to assert her will and personality. Let her be. Just make sure she does not have anything else like biscuits, wafers, kurkure etc in between. That can be a reason she does not feel hungry and finds home food less tasty than the bisciuts and wafers.

As long as there is only sweating on fore head need not to worry. As baby has sweat gland active on fore head only 1. Feed your baby in a cool area with comfortable temperature 2. Do not over dress the baby, just put one extra layer of clothes what we put. 3. Put cotton/ woolen clothes not synthetic 4. Watch for other symptoms - like fast heart rate, breathlessness, failure to gain weight, cough, blue colour over skin contact on private for further advise if required.

My baby would turn four months on 19th of this month but he suckles at me whole night is it possible my feed is not enough for him? is top feed ok or am I thinking too much? formula milk he refuses

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
If he is putting on around 600 gms weight per month, your breast feeding is more than enough. It means he likes sucking.

My son is 4 years old, he have adenoids for the past one year. I'm giving medicines (cold and sometime antibiotics also). Is that safe to give medicines for these many days?

Pediatrician, Pune
Adenoids enlargement are normal in children till 5-7 yes of age if they are not associated with recurrent fever, mouth breathing, snoring sleep disturbance, ear problems they are not of any harm, they reduce in size as the child grows, try to give him a smoke, dust, allergen free environment, plenty of water and fruits

yes, many times it is normal. if your child is gaining weight properly, you need not to worry. general rule is the weight of the baby should get double at sixth month and triple at 1st birth day with reference to birth weight.

My son is 2 year old. He is a very happy, social and fun loving child. He is nauseatic lot many times and even throws up for last 7 to 10 days. I had shown him to his regular paediatric, she said there might be some stomach upset and gave to stop vomiting. It did not help and she changed it to Atarax drops, which didn't help either, so discontinued it after 2 doses after reading on the net that it's a very strong medicine. I referred him to one of the most senior most and reputed paediatric in my city. He said that the child's stomach is absolutely fine no need to give him any medicine, he is just trying to do it to grab your attention, just ignore. I told him most of the time he gets up from his afternoon nap and throws up. He said at times when kids are having anxiety they may do it, just ignore it. I did ignore for 2 to 3 days he was still vomiting (lesser quantity though but 2 to 3 times) . I started with probiotic sachet Reflora-R which has reduced his vomiting and nauseatic feeling a bit but not completely stopped. After vomiting the child is fine just like a normal happy child. Should I show him to a gastroenterologist or is it his anxiety?

If child feels better after vomiting it suggest possibility of gastritis (hyperacidity. If he is fond of eating fried foods like potato chips, kurkure etc then strictly stop this. He will be better within 3 days. If he has any problem in stools (latrine) then do his stool examination from a laboratory. Pain may be due to stool infection.

Once macox zh is started, it should be takeen uninterruptedly for 6 months as per advised by treating doctor. Untreated hookworm infection may cause serious anemia.

Dental Health Lessons You Can Learn From Your Car

Dental Health Lessons You Can Learn From Your Car

What are you doing for your teeth? Prevention is the best medicine when it comes to taking care of the things you depend on most. Get the most mileage out of your mouth by using these strategies in your dental care routine.

Watch What Gets In Your Grill
A grill on a car keeps harmful things from getting under the hood. Think of your own grill as a filter system for your entire body. Everybody’s mouth is full of germs—some good, some bad. The bad ones can cause cavities and gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss. Severe gum disease is also associated with other medical problems, like diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

Keep Your Fuel Tank Full
You wouldn’t put just anything in your fuel tank, so be aware of what you're putting in your mouth. Keep your engine running with a healthy diet full of fruits and vegetables. 

Practice Preventative Maintenance
Your car won’t get very far without fresh oil and proper tire pressure. Your teeth also need regular care. Daily brushing and flossing are the best ways to keep your mouth healthy. 

Get a Tune Up
Taking your car in for a tune up can extend the life of your vehicle and catch small repairs before they turn into big fixes. Regular visits to your dentist and good dental habits can prevent many dental diseases and will keep you smiling for years to come.

Hello Mr. Jain, you have not mentioned her birth wt & current height. Is she undrewt from birth/ recently became one? she needs a thorough checkup from a paediatrician to determine the cause & treat accordingly. Stop giving her junk food, deworm evey 6 months, & treat constipation if any.

breast milk is critical to their baby’s bone development, mothers should be sure to have enough calcium, or risk bone loss in her mouth, which can worsen periodontal diseases.

My baby girl is 6 and half months old. She always put her fingers on her mouth but her teeth doesn't yet come out. When her teeth comes out and what should I do for her teething? should give homeopathic medicine calcarea phos 6x or any other medicine?

Hi lybrate-userMost babies get their first tooth at around 6 months, but your child's chompers may appear as early as 3 months or as late as 14, depending on such factors as when Mom and Dad started sprouting teeth and whether or not your baby was a pre term (pre term child tend to teethe on the late side). Wait for few more months and then visit the dentist. Please don't give any medicines on your own. Thanks.

What Causes Iron Deficiency in Children?

CCT, FRCPCH , MRCPCH, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
What Causes Iron Deficiency in Children?

Iron deficiency is a common condition in children. It occurs when there is a scarcity of iron in the child's system due to malnutrition. Iron is an extremely important mineral that is required for growth and development in young ones. It is used in transporting oxygen through the bloodstream and is essential for the functioning of the muscles. If the child's diet lacks iron then the condition might worsen and turn into anemia.

Children need different levels of iron intake at different ages for proper development of all mental and physical faculties. As the child gets older and reaches the age of puberty, the requirement of iron and other minerals also increases. Deficiencies can lead to various nutritional disorders that may cause severe complications.

The primary cause of iron deficiency in children is an improper diet which leads to a lack of nourishment. There are a number of other causes of the problem, some of which are as follows:

  • Low birth weight
  • Excessive intake of cow's milk at less than 2 years of age
  • Feeding exclusively on breastmilk beyond 6 months of age
  • Lead poisoning
  • Insufficient intake of lean meat
  • Pure vegetarian diet
  • Gastrointestinal disease or infection
  • Improper diet of the mother during pregnancy
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Infestation of parasites in the digestive system.

If the problem arises due to dietary deficiency, it can be easily solved by making simple modifications to the child's diet plan. If the condition stems from other factors or diseases, the child must be taken to a doctor immediately for a medical diagnosis and remedial treatment.

Hi lybrate-user. It is not a serious issue. It is common to have late speaking especially in nuclear families. Try more to talk to him. They learn fast when there are many people around them to talk.

Production of thyroid hormones T3 and T4 increases by about 50%. As a result, the normal thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) level during pregnancy is lower than the normal nonpregnancy level. The new recommendations for TSH levels during pregnancy are the following: First trimester: less than 2.5 with a range of 0.1-2.5.. You have to leave the decision to your doctor
