Junk foods are unhealthy and may lead to various health problems. Food habits depend on how we cultivate. Slowly you must divert towards other foods with love and affection.

If hearing is normal then, problem is cosmetic. Consult plastic surgeon better. But get audiometry done to confirm state of hearing ability.

Hi mam I'm Kavi. I'm 22 years old I have a baby 7 months old. When my baby was 3 month old I left him with my mom and went to college to continue my studies .in a day I am spending 4 to 5 hours with him. Even Nw I am studying. So my doubt is will my baby forget me? Will he don't have affection on me. Will he have more affection only on my mom.

A child remains more attached with whom he remains most of time. It is natural. Rest you can understand.

No, chicken pox and mmr are not same. They are two different vaccines. There is however, no harm if you have given a second dose of chicken pox by mistake. You an take her after a gap of one month (compulsory between 2 vaccines) and give her the mmr vaccine. No harm done but don't miss the mmr vaccine.

Nursing Bottle Caries- Causes and Management

Nursing Bottle Caries- Causes and Management

Nursing improperly often becomes a big reason for tooth decay and caries in babies. The way out is to get the baby tooth cared for from the very first day. This form of tooth decay is associated with nursing, when the baby sucks the pacifier, or takes other sugary juices or drinks, or formula milk from a nursing bottle.

The main causes of nursing bottle caries:
The babies are often fed in nursing bottles or feeding bottles, and the bottle nipple often stays in the mouth for long; sometimes overnight also if not taken care of. Again, the babies are pacified with pacifiers, which are often dipped in honey or a sugar solution, and this again brings in more reasons for dental caries. In any of the situations described, the baby's newly formed teeth which are susceptible to all forms of decay and damages while being gentle and new can get cavities. The sugary liquids and milk can form a coating on the teeth which brings in cavities.

How to prevent the nursing caries:
The best option to prevent is not to leave the baby with the bottle or pacifier for long. Again, the pacifier or the bottle should be always washed properly, sterilized and not left in the mouth of the baby uncared, especially during sleep time, when the baby sleeps while sucking onto them.

There are some steps to follow to prevent the early tooth decay and maintain baby dental hygiene. They are:

1. Even before the first tooth comes out, massage and clean the baby's gums with a clean washcloth or soft cotton everyday, and after every long feeding.

2. You don't need toothpaste to start brushing the first few new teeth that come out. Just brush without a toothpaste and use a very soft gentle brush to form the habit. In areas where no tooth has come up, brush and massage the gums only.

  • When all the teeth have come up, start flossing everyday
  • Try to take the baby for a dental checkup at least every year if not every six months.
  • Try to cut down on the consumption of extra sweet beverages. Add some water to the fruit juice to dilute the concentration and sweetness.

All these steps mentioned are great to start healthy and good dental care and hygiene, and if you follow them well, then dental caries will be away.

Just licking would not have made any reasonable quantity to be swallowed. Since she is active and normal you need not worry.

Don't be worrried about your baby's eating habits. If he is wetting the diaper 6-8 times and making bowel movements 2-5 times a day, it means he is getting enough to eat.

If you bottle feed him you have to stop bottle and feed with a spoon form cup and check his thyroid to see if there is any disease. Usually children are fussy about eating

Fever can occur in a newborn because of high atmospheric temperature which can be tackled by increasing the number of feeds. If the baby is inactive and refuses to take feeds you must show to your pediatrician.

Dear mother suji and sagudana are good but for a two year old child this is inadequate. Besides these two give him food from family pot. That means whatever you all eat in breakfast and lunch and dinner should be given to the child also. For further query you can contact.

My 6 years son who is suffering from adhd & asd. At nimhans/banglore no medicine was prescribed and only suggest some skill at home. Now his adhd problem is continued as he is not sit constantly in one place. Please suggest me. Nimhans is far away from my native.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Stimulants such as ritalin and adderall are often prescribed for attention deficit disorder, but they might not be the best option for your child? and they? re certainly not the only treatment. Medications for add/adhd may help your child concentrate better or sit still, at least in the short term. But to date, there is little evidence that they improve school achievement, relationships, or behavioral issues over the long term. And even in the short term, medication won? t solve all problems or completely eliminate the symptoms of add/adhd. Furthermore, there are concerns about the effects these powerful drugs may have on a child? s developing brain. And the side effects? such as irritability, loss of appetite, and insomnia? can also be problematic. Medication is a tool, not a cure. And it is most effective when combined with other treatments that address emotional and behavioral issues. Ask me personally (privately for guidance)
