Your wife must have got infected about 2 weeks ago and developed symptoms today. 9 weeks old baby also would have come in contact with same same person from where your wife got infection. Vaccination status of mother againest chicken pox is not known. Under the situation, it is adviseble to consult pediatician.

You previously had Tuberculosis which is healed now but left residual scarring. It has made your lungs weak and may be the cause of tightness. Otherwise there could be fresh infection or inflammation

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
If he is otherwise healthy the early morning temperature is of no significance. But check cbc, and urine routine test in a good lab and send me the results in private consultation. As it is better than open question.

My grandson is 2 years and 4 months - good hight and fairly good active mode - only complaint is less intake - no voulentary intention to have food- every day compulsory feeding is must. What should be the strategy?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Aurangabad
Dear , very good question to answer, all parents are asking such question. Answer is very simple weaning starts at the age of 5 months, if start i. e. Beginning is good and maintained then everything goes well otherwise once baby start walking then she runs ahead and mother runs after baby and then starts ferry that please take this and that, otherwise mother do feed continuously with other food then also baby do not accept then food. Hence take your baby in lap while taking your meal baby will accept whatever you are eating provided baby is not given any other food so take care.

Hi! i'm having a baby girl. She is completing 2 yrs. She's till on motherfeed and won't quit. She has a poor intake of meals. She s slim, but active. Please suggest what to do?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
If child with 13 kg weight at 2 years is active and playful. Parents should be happy and content, rather than worrying about intake. Poor intake is your perception, which may be born out of anxiety about her well-being. Respect her choice. Enjoy and play with her. Breast feeding can be stopped after 2 years.

If he is exclusively breastfed this is not a problem and ids common. If he is given bottle feed, stop it and give breast and I f you must give top feed, give it with a spoon.

You can keep paracetamol suspension which can be given in the dosage of 10 to 15 mg per kg body weight per dose and for cold you can put saline nasal drops into each nostril frequently.

No and you have to change diaper as frequently as it is wet and better use cotton cloth tied around.

Preventing Thumb Sucking in Children

PGDHHM, BDS

Preventing Thumb Sucking in Children

Thumb or finger sucking is common in infants through the first year of their lives. A child usually turns to his thumb when he is tired, upset or bored.

A child younger than five years should not be pressured to stop thumb sucking. While majority of children give up such habits on their own before they enter school, about 15 percent of children continue thumb sucking past their fifth birthday. This is an age when teasing often starts, causing difficulties for children.

Apart from this, thumb sucking can also lead to dental problems. A child who is still sucking his thumb by age five, when permanent teeth start coming in, may develop an abnormal bite. In addition, prolonged thumb sucking can cause minor physical problems, such as chapped lips or cracked skin, calluses, or fingernail infections.

The effects of thumb sucking are usually reversible until the age of seven because children still have their deciduous (baby) teeth. If thumb sucking continues beyond that age, when the second teeth are erupting, permanent dental problems can occur.

There are various things you can do to help your child stop thumb sucking:

1. Reward your child and offer encouragement - For example, with a hug or praise to reinforce their decision to stop the habit.

2. Limit nagging - If children feel they are being nagged they will become defensive.

3. Mark their progress on a calendar - For example, place a star or a tick for each period (such as a day or week) that the child does not suck thumb or finger. Provide a special outing or a toy if the child gets through the period successfully.

4. Encourage bonding - For example, with a special toy.

5. Reminders - Give the child a mitten to wear as a reminder not to suck, or place unpleasant tasting nail paint (available from chemists) on the fingers or thumb. Placing a band aid over the thumb at bedtime is another reminder.

6. Offer distractions - While a child is watching tv, have toys available for children to play with. Sit with the child during this time and give a cuddle to help them not to suck. In the car, have toys available to keep children occupied.

7. Talk to your pediatrician and your child's dentist, who may recommend appropriate treatment that prevents thumb sucking.

Don't feed forcefully. Give her available food at home of her choice n taste. Nutritious diet is best tonic. Consult pediatrician to look for any nutritious deficiency. If still you feel to get advice, may consult privately.

You don't feel any change because heaviness of breast is very gradual process. Milk will surely come if you desire it. So no anxiety apply to breast as possible after delivery. Thanks.

This finding by itself is suggesting umbilical for which no intervention is needed. This provisional advice provided by me stands subject to the actual examination of report/ image and is based entirely on inputs provided to me. It should be correlated with clinical findings.
