Hi. My son is 17 months old a very healthy boy. But I am concerned about him when every night at around 12: 30-1: 00am. He starts crying so loudly for at least 25 minutes. Please advice.

At this age the cry episodes are related to dream understandings and also called as night terrors. A physical company and patting the child or a story bedtime or a fat meal at night is likely to work. Other causes of recent night cry are related to insect bite, nose block, ear ache, constipation or indigestion.

My dear boy you need good counseling session. Whatever the symptoms you are speaking about are very vague and nonspecific. Some medicines also can be prescribed to you but after your personality analysis. Will be able to get rid of these things and will be able to concentrate on studies and remember the things easily and for long lasting period. We together will be able to strengthen your memory and recalling power. Regards.

My son is 12 year old. He shakes his head frequently. Sometimes his shoulders also. Whats the reason and treatment?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Probably it is a tic, without any significance, but it's diagnosis by exclusion. One needs to physically examine.

If child is playful, when fever is down, it is viral. Give paracetamol for fever and wait for 2-3 days. If he seems dull/worsening meet your pediatrician.

Tips for Dads to Take Care of Their Baby

Tips for Dads to Take Care of Their Baby

Dads and moms should share in the responsibility in caring for their newborn baby.

Importance of Dad Care

Caring for their baby gives dad's a chance to bond with their baby and also provides rest, help and support to the mom who might be in great stress. It is important to be there for your wife and be an active participant in caring for your family. Care for your young one and take turns changing the diaper, watching the baby or feeding.

What dads can do?

Dads can get involved in the different activities like changing soiled diapers, massage and bathing or sponging, get his/her dressed, feeding the baby if on formula feeds, burping the baby etc. Rocking the baby to sleep and singing songs and lullabies gives you a different experience. Don't shy away from responsibilities. It is best that you be there rather than ignore your need.

Skin to skin contact (Kangaroo care)
Babies respond to touch. Kangaroo care is very helpful especially in premature babies. It helps in growth of baby. It helps in bonding of baby with father. Hold your baby tight against your skin. Let the hearts connect. It is a beautiful experience to hold God's creation in your hand. This is the best way to connect to your little one and make him feel special. The best thing about this activity is that more than the baby it makes you feel happy and complete.

Practice makes a man perfect!
The only way to learn how to care for a bay is by getting involved and get going. Don't hesitate. You may feel shy initially but once you start involving in your baby care, the experience of nursing a baby makes you more confident.

Share your experience in your group at home or office, you may find more practical ways for caring your baby. Be open to suggestions and try and incorporate the good ones.

It has been found that babies who are 'well fathered' tend to be more secure and confident in exploring the world around them. Be a father that is around to observe and nurture your kid, remember it's the childhood that one cherishes the most.

Hello doctor, am a 24 years old breast feeding mother. My daughter is 6months old. I find my breastmilk has reduced from comparing to earlier. Is there any food that increase breast milk?

The key to more milk is more suckling. Try putting your baby to breast more frequently. You may also use a breastpump after every feed to provide continuous stimulation to breasts.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH

What do you mean by milk buster? Is it flow from other breast you are worried about, It's normal when you are overwhelmed by feeling of love to your child. Relax and enjoy! If it is anything else, let me know.

A 10 month old showing temper tantrum is unlikely. A temper tantrum can mean something different depending on your child’s age.

Using an ac is advisable given a condition that child is not exposed to the direct cold air coming from ac, maintain a room temperature of 21-27 degrees will be optimum. You can go for any brand ac which you like.

Shift the infant off the flattened areas to enable the head to assume a symmetric shape. • Alternate the head position in supine (right cheek to mattress one time, left cheek next). • When awake and supervised, prop the baby onto one side with a foam wedge or a towel rolled lengthwise along the baby’s back. • Conduct supervised “tummy time” in the waking hours to improve the baby’s muscle strength and development and keep the baby off the back of the head. • Watch for “high guard” positioning and ensure that the infant has opportunities for midline play. • Limit time in car seats, infant seats, swings, and strollers. • Frequently change the position of the crib or the orientation of the baby in the crib to reduce the baby’s tendency to look in the same direction. • Change positions when feeding, carrying, and holding the baby. • Provide supervised upright play as soon as the baby has upright head control. • Interact with the baby from different sides, during feeding, changing, and playing. • Encourage side-lying play. • Under the direction of a physical therapist or physician, perform neck range of motion exercises for torticollis as needed.

My kid baby boy age is 13 months but his weight is just 8 kg and the boy is very active. Please help me.

Hello , weight is less, but birth weight and feeding practices are important to assess. Also it depends on the height gain and weight gain pattern whether the child is having an issue or not. You should ask your pediatrician to plot the height and weight and head size on growth chart and keep monitoring growth every two months. This way you can make an informed decision and management can be done. I hope it helped Dr. Uppal growth, childhood diabetes and hormone specialist.

My 3 years old son has difficulty in speaking, he can babble but can’t speak and point his finger towards the desired objects. Instead he use to take us by holding our hand to the desired object example towards AC switch or Refrigerator door. He can’t even speak Mama, Papa and can’t point when asked about them. Had a poor eye contact. He is physically fit with all emotions, plays game on mobile. He has been doubted with ASD but the assessment is still pending. We have been advised to do BERA and EEG Tests which appears normal. His MRI report is has some deviation from normal which needs to be understood. Investigation: MRI Brain Plain Results: Multiplanar Mr. imaging of the brain was done. TIW, TSE-T2W and FLAIR images were obtained in three orthogonal planes. The study shows small hyperintensities on FLAIR involving peritrigonal region/occipital region on both the sides, possibly incomplete myelination Rest of the brain parenchyma appears normal. The basil cisterns and superficial subarachnoid CSF spaces are normal. Ventricles appear prominent. The mid brain, pons and medulla are normal. The cerebellar hemispheres are normal. Visualized parts of the sella, 5 th, 7 th and 8 th nerve complexes are grossly normal on routine brain imaging. Major flow voids are present. Advice: Clinical Correlation. Please help me to understand the report. Regards,

You should ignore all non verbal requests & child will express verbally may not be very clear in begining but. This will improve with time. Communicate with him verbally in correct way wth patience. Leaving him amongst other kids is also very effective way to develope speech.
