It's change of season, raised temp that might be causing irritability. Give him plenty of liquids so as to maintain water balance of the body. Start weaning with home food gradually. Give more time to child, play with him. Monitor the growth chart and developmental chart to see that growth and development is within normal limits.

Oh so sorry to hear that. But basically both of this are water borne problem. So use sterile (boiled & cooled down) drinking water, frequently hand washing with soap, no other food then natural & home made - non spicy, rest is best remedy & must be 15 days atleast. Due antibiotics for typhoid for least 10 to 14 days.

Now baby requires more than your milk. What ever milk you have that is sufficient to baby. By now, he must have started eating every thing suitable to him cooked at home and top milk. You may continue your feed up to 2 years of age.

Yes weight is indeed high and height is in normal range. I can send you across the growth chart of your child which can give you better idea. So ofcourse you shall be calorie conscious now for years child and involve the child in more and more physical activity like tennis swimming badminton where calories can be burnt and child can loose bit weight.

My son's age is 5. He has dust allergy normally he starts to cough a lot but in india doctor used to give Allegra and it used to work. Last 5 months back shifted to London. For the last 15 days onwards, he is constantly coughing but very less during the night time but the coughing increases after having any food or milk. The doctors are saying the chest is clear and has given ventilin evohaler.

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
As the chest is clear and ventilin evohaler is not showing benifit, you can try allegra surup again. As the cough is after feed, every care should be taken that child is not aspirating during feed, which can occur if feed taken in hurry or in faulty posture.

Best solution is that DON'T FORCE her to eat and leave her on her own liberty to choose food of her liking available at home. Baby needs change in variety of food of her/ his liking. Avoid toffee, cold drinks n junk food etc.

No supplements are required if the baby is on breastfeed. Make sure the baby burps between a feed and there shouldn't be the need for digestives.

Hello Mam, Prolonged fever in children might be due to urine infection too. If blood tests are normal then go for urine examination. If UTI will be ruled out then take the treatment accordingly.

It appears that your son remains alright in day time but does not sleep at night since quite long time and he closes his eyes while crying. Closing eye during cry is not abnormal. Most likely your child remains hungary. Try to feed him of his choice item.

I have started giving my 11 month baby buffalo milk with water on 50: 50 ratio from 4 months. But since then he has been getting lot of cough and sometimes he even vomits at night while coughing. I give him bottle with 120 ml milk twice during the night and once I feed him. During the day I give him aata soup, banana, roti, rice, etc. Of whatever we cook at home. Is milk the cause of his cough? If yes, what milk would be best suited for him then?

lybrate-user if you are sure that it started after the milk then it can be reason for that as different individual reacts to food differently. As natural product is best to feed I will not advise you to stop it. I can suggest you a homeopathic medicine. Give tuberculinum bovinum 200 1 dose to the baby. There may be further requirement of doses but for that you need to consult as the repetition is always case specific in homeopathy.

5 Ways to Help Your child Combat ADHD!

5 Ways to Help Your child Combat ADHD!

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is marked by an ongoing pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that interferes with functioning or development. Inattention and hyperactivity are key symptoms of ADHD. Symptoms can include having problems sustaining attention in tasks, not listening when spoken to directly, not following through on instructions, failing to finish schoolwork or chores, starting tasks but quickly losing focus, getting easily sidetracked, talking nonstop, blurting out an answer before a question has been completed, finishing other people’s sentences, or speaking without waiting for a turn in conversation. Raising a child with ADHD isn’t like traditional childrearing. Normal rule-making and household routines can become almost impossible, so you’ll need to adopt different approaches. It can be frustrating and disheartening to cope with constant impulsive behaviour from your child. Here are a few tips to help you:

1. Create structure:

Make a routine for your child and stick to it every day. Establish rituals around meals, homework, playtime, and bedtime. Simple daily tasks, such as having your child lay out his or her clothes for the next day can provide structure. 

2. Break tasks into smaller chunks:

Breakdown any task into smaller manageable tasks. Have a task list up on a wall and write down any and all tasks the child needs to finish. This way they know what needs to be done and when they need to get it done by.

3. Create a quiet corner:

Create a small quiet space for your child where they can do their homework, reading and have some time to themselves. Make this place a quiet distraction free area for them. Keep this place neat and organized at all times.

4. Promote wait-time:

Children with ADHD often speak out without thinking of what they are saying. It is important to encourage thoughtful responses while doing any work or reading a book. It is important to teach your child how to think before speaking.

5. Declutter the space:

Children with ADHD welcome distractions such as television, video games and computer games. These encourage impulsive behaviour and thus should be regulated. Decreasing time with electronics and increasing time doing engaging activities outside the home, will give your child an outlet for any built-up energy.

My Daughter is 5 Year old. But She still bed wetting at night regularly. (4-5 times a week) We find difficult to manage it. Please Advise.

MBBS, FELLOWSHIP IN PAEDIATRICS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
As adults, when the bladder gets full, it sends a signal to the brain to wake up or you start dreaming about water or going to bathroom, and then you wake up, but for kids the signal isn't quite strong enough to get them awake which is why it is normal for children to wet the bed till age 6 or below. Therefore bed-wetting is a developmental issue and therefore the treatment is time, so for kids age 6 or under, they will most likely grow out of it. It becomes an issue when the child starts feeling bad about himself, when he starts to pull away from his friend because he is afraid that his friends will make fun of him. It makes matters worse when parents yell and scream at their children for bed wetting. Kids need reassurance and encouragement from parents. Children who continue to wet the bed beyond the age of 6 may not be producing enough ADH hormone at appropriate times or may not yet be attuned to their bodies' signals, or both. Behavioral changes too play a role in achieving dryness, he says. Try decreasing the amount that kids drink before bed. Parents should seek formal treatment between ages 6 and 7. There are bed wetting alarms available which are very effective on their own. But they take around 12 weeks to show the difference. If the problem is severe a pediatrician should be consulted for medication advice such as desmopressin which acts on kidneys to reduce the flow of urine. Another medication is imipramine which allows you to have better control of the bladder, affects the bladder musculature and may change sleep patterns, so kids wake up if they have to urinate. While this is cheaper than desmopressin it has more side effects on long term used. The bottom line is you should resort to medicines as last option first try reward therapy and beahvioral changes. More than 80% children at this age will grow out of it.
