He had 7episode of watery diarrhea.
It is not very abnormal to pass stool after taking any thing orally. your son is 2 years and 4 months old. It may be possible he drinks liquid at a time more than his requirement. Restrict his liquid if he is not dehydrated, otherwise consult pediatrician.

Ideally low birth weight babies gain weight by 2yrs of life. You should restrict milk to max of 400 ml per day (divided 2-3 times) you should make her eat with the family during meals give her dal, khichadi, dalia, soup, boiled potatoes, eggs, phoha, rice mixed with dal. Supplement with calcium syp 5ml thrice a day and a multivitamin 5ml once a day that will serve the purpose.

If she is well stop those medicines and offer her fresh fruits and vegetables regularly. Serve homemade fresh food 3- 4 times. She needs plenty of water.

If your baby is 6months old you should introduce semisolid diet like khichdi, dal rice, mashed potato, mashed fruits, thick milkshakes, soups, fresh fruit juices, vegetable pulao everything in semisolid consistency. Do not force feed your child. Continue mother's milk. Mother has to take nutritious diet, milk and milk products, paneer, sprouts, fruits, balanced diet, all leafy vegetables. Have food and feed your child with a very relaxed mind. See your child growing happily.

Hello, If your child is active and does not fall sick often, there is nothing to worry. He is not extremely underweight, but you need to improve on his protein, calcium and iron requirements.

Both PCV and Rota virus vaccines are optional vaccines as per Indian academy of [pediatric guidelines, but if there are no financial constraints one should always go for these vaccinations as they decrease a good amount of morbidity in under 5 years of life.

Soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices should be consumed in a limited quantity because they are acidic in nature. Acidic food or drinks often soften the tooth material which leads to the dissolution of minerals into the tooth enamel, resulting in cavities (holes).

These details are my son. He is 6.5 years old. At the time of night when he sleeps his nose get blocked and he face problem in breathing and feel uncomfortable so please help me.

Appears to be umbilical hernia. Normally this disappears with age, say about 2 tears. No medicine is required for it. If it becomes red and swollen, does not reduce on pressing, may need surgery at that time.

Loving Your Kids The Right Way

MDS, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), BDS

Loving Your Kids The Right Way

Loving our children in a real way:

  • Loving my daughter/son comes so easily when 
  • She/he wins a competition, 
  • Gets high marks, 
  • Listens to me, 
  • Keeps her room clean, 
  • Finishes her food, 
  • Pays attention while studying, 
  • Sleeps on time, 
  • Never raises her voice and 
  • Practices dance/singing/drawing without me reminding her.

That's the easy way to love.

However when I look back at my childhood I realize that the moments I really wanted love badly were when 

  • I scored less marks, 
  • Failed in a competition, 
  • Couldn't fall asleep,
  • Didn't feel like studying,
  • Wanted to laze around,
  • Didn't finish the tiffin,
  • Didn't complete homework,
  • Forgot an important assignment,
  • Fought with a friend,
  • Had a heartbreak,
  • Committed a mistake,
  • Felt guilty,
  • Felt lonely.

These were the moments when I needed my parents the most, I needed their assurance that it is okay to be human, to fall, to get hurt and what I wanted to listen in those moments was" I know it hurts, but i'm here with you. Maybe we can't do anything about what happened, but i'm here with you. And I love you for what you are, always"

This is real and unconditional way to love!
Yes I wanted to hear" I love you" loud and clear. It was the only thing that could heal my heart. Love!

It's the moments when we lose control of ourselves that we want someone to hold us, isn't it? you don't need to be perfect. Just be real!

Do you chose love the easy way or the real, unconditional way?

Today no matter what your child does, choose love and see how it heals you as a parent.
