Could there be an endocrinology related issue that could cause obesity in children if they are gaining weight even with careful diet (no junk food, soda, overeating) and good physical activity?

Yes Indeed. It is a good idea to consult a doctor and do a metabolic screening including a thyroid profile.

My 2 months baby boy was vomiting a little bit of milk after feeding. some times after one hour of feeding he is spitting little bit of milk(look like card). Please suggest me to prevent the vomiting

Burp him regularly after each meal. When you put him to sleep ensure that the head end is elevated about 15 degrees. This is self limiting and usually finishes by 6 months of age

My baby is 6 months old now! can I start giving her daily foods?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician,
Frequency: after 6 months you need to start weaning foods apart from breastfeeding. For next one month: 1-2 times other foods (rest breast or formula feeding) from 7th month: 2-3 times other foods, increase to 4 from 8th month and 5 from 9th month. After that 6 times food, plus breastfeeding. As you can see you shouldn't stop breastfeeding, taper it down slowly. After one year day time food plus night breastfeeding. Type 1. You can start weaning foods like rice gruel or kheer or boiled apple and boiled vegetables or cereal, etc. Initially for one month give only once or twice a day. Rest should be breastfeeding and formula. 3. Exact quantity varies from baby to baby. Don't force feed every time. The moment he refuses to feed wait and try again after an hour or so. 4. Feed in calm and dark place to avoid distractions. 5. After 7 months gradually add home available foods (low salt low spice) like idli, khichdi, dal rice, etc in soft form (mashed with hands) 6. Add oil or ghee to each food item. 7. Avoid cow's milk till 1 year. Consistency almost liquid like till 7 months, semisolids from 8 months soft solids from 10 months egg yellow from 8 months, white from 1 year fruits and vegetables all types in plenty (at least two servings each per day) all vegetables can be boiled and given. Apple can be boiled while other fruits like banana papaya orange etc can be given without boiling.

It may be atopic dermatitis which is attributable to top feeds. It may resolve if you use hypoallergenic milk and avoiding frequent washing of the area. You can also emollients after bath. Frequent cough also may be due to allergy.

Hi, yes you can give it, its better not to give dal water instead give dal, also try mashed banana, potatoes and apple, if he takes dal then after few weeks you can make khichadi also.

I'm a 34 years old mother of 2 girls, and a 14 years old son. My son has always been a loving, caring, well behaved child. Only problem that we have had is the first years and a half of middle school as he was focused on being cool. He's grades began to slip for a short period. Recently I found out that he gently rubbed my 16 years old sisters butt, and tried to slide his hand down her panties while she was asleep, one night while she and my mom came for a visit. My little sis slept in his bed, and he slept on floor beside the bed. He got as far as his knuckles when he pulled his had away. He says he stopped he felt guilty" Gross and disgusted" were the words he used. It truly flabbergasted me that he did this. I didn't believe it when I was told he had done this. He has always been a caring child. A kid that truly cared about other's feelings. My question is. Could this be normal exploration even though he chose to do this to a sleeping young lady, or could this be something that I should worry about as I have a 12 years old daughter, and a 3 year old daughter that doesn't speak well yet? I love my son and I'm very worried about this. Does he need counseling?

BHMS, MD - Homoeopathy
Homeopath, Lucknow
See as far as age of your son is considered, these are some normal sexual explorations, but yes off course in a wrong way, your child needs counselling, but by you only. See, people in india do not want to talk about sex, but sex education in teenage is very much necessary to develop the good in your child. At this age teenagers are eager about the sexual changes taking place in their bodies and also of opposite sex, to fulfil their eagerness they indulge in wrong activities. If this time they are provided with good information about their eagerness from their parents itself, like friends, so they will develop into more mature male, and do whatever is correct. So, you, being a supreme power of the house, you can take charge of the task, instead thrashing you son, thrashing leads to separation and counseling leads to more friendship.

My child aged 5 months suffering from loose motion for 10 days. What is the solution?
If you are breast feeding your child then semisolid loose motions in the form of golden yellow or greenish colour, small in quantity 10 - 20 per day are normal. No need to worry till your child is gaining weight appropriately.

There are certain drugs which may react to some individual producing some side/ toxic effect which can be known after use. Pls note the medicine which reacted and told doctor whenever you visit. It shall be in interest of baby to know the name of medicine which reacted before advising medicine. To develop immunity, give him protein rich nutritious diet and vit a 60.000 units daily for a week. For running nose, instill saline nasal drops in each nostril 3 times in a day.

Thank you for your query. Your son is too small to start with any treatment for dark circles. If he takes proper diet and there is no underlying medical condition then there is nothing to worry about. All the best.

Hi lybrate user, you have delivered prematurely and since baby is born with less weight she needs to be care with incubator and necessary management of arising complaints. Once she picks up weight and breaths normally she will be discharged. Meanwhile your milk can be sucked with breast pump and fed to baby.

Cough associated with cold is mostly due to viral infection. Frequent infection is usually due to lack of immunity response. Pls consult pediatrician.
