Because his request are completed by non verbal actions. You have to make him speak by ignoring his activities. Leaving him in children of similar age group will be useful. Correct his words & pronunciations when needed. Never imitate childs voice & words for joy.

Your child needs more fluids and roughage in his diet. Ripe papaya/ stew / mashed boiled spinach to be introduced. Now give Nulax 2.5 ml daily for 3 days

Hello the parent should teach the baby about the feeds. Improper feeding habit can cause severe growth failure and may be mental retardation. Start complementary feed which should be nutritious and palatable. Regards.

Is it fine to feed a 14 month baby with butter, ghee in the food? should the sweet intake be restricted too, though my baby enjoys sweet preparations.

General Physician,
You can safely add small amounts of ghee butter etc. Make sure not to make your child obese. It is a big health problem in children" too much of anything is bad" you know happy parenting.

Passing stools infrequently is not uncommon in that age. Frequent urination is due to adequate breastfeeding. Nothing to worry much.

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated?

MBBS

Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication there will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly.

Dear doctors, My son who is 4 years old now, has a habit of chewing his clothes and any random objects in hand. He does that usually when not engaged in any activity. He also sometimes pronounce words opposite to what he means. For e.g. When he wants to move forward he moves forward but says he is moving back. He isn't shy and do approach people to make friends be it his own age or elders. But at times get conscious of crowd. He panics if he doesn't see me around when at a new place. That's the reason he isn't comfortable going to school. I am concerned whether it's a serious issue or just a behavioural pattern. Pls help! Thanks.

Hi doc, my 45 days old son is around 4.2 kg and his birth weight is 3.4 kg. Doc told his weight gain is too slow. I am on breastfeeding. He is around 56 cm in height. I am really worried. He is peeing and pooping. He looks quite active and normal. I am really confused. Please suggest whether I need to introduce formula or other supplements for his weight to peek.

Continue breastfeeding, your baby is growing normally & weight gain will be seen in near future. Supplement semisolid/liquid diet at 6 months of age. No need to start any formula feeds.

Try offering one spoonful or two spoonfuls of the following: pureed or mashed cooked vegetables, such as carrot or potato. Mashed or pureed fruits, such as banana, cooked apple, pear, or mango. Gluten-free cereal, such as rice, sago, maize, mixed with your baby's usual milk. You can also give cauliflower. You could try starchy vegetables, too, such as sweet potato. Once your baby is eating these fruits and vegetables happily, you can move on to other foods from the main groups: bread, rice, potatoes, and pasta dairy foods meat, fish, eggs, and beans introducing a range of foods and tastes at this stage may reduce the chances of your baby becoming a fussy eater later on. It's important to offer your baby savoury foods as well as sweet at this stage, so she learns to like a range of flavours.
