Hi my baby was diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux with suspected uti. And was put on antibiotics till date. She was 2 months old at diag. Now she is normal. Should we need to continue the med. Dose 1.5ml septron.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
The infants are prone to develop recurrent uti and also infection of kidney. This is the reason they need to be put on prophylactic (low dose antibiotic) for long duration. The ultrosonography should also be done to see any damage to the kidney in babies below 2 years of age if there is history of uti. I would like to know whether usg has been done or not. Regards.

My son's nose who is 2.5 months old, remains partially blocked whenever he wakes up after sleep. I have been giving him nasoclear till now. This problem is there right from his 1 week age.

This is common phenomenon seen in newborn and usually persist till 5 to 6 month of age. The nasoclear you are using is saline water to dissolve the mucus and clear the secretions and at the end clear the pathway. This many time is seen during temperature changes of surrounding of the child ie morning, in AC room etc. Avoid making swift temperature changes in the baby's surrounding.

Tragedies - How they Affect Kids?

Tragedies are a part of life and at some point in life, every person faces them. It may be in different forms like separation, crisis in relationships, financial stress, death of a loved one, some severe disease and many others. Such tragedies can cripple anybody from inside out, but the children can have a devastating effect on their lives. Therefore, it is important that you love and support them during this phase and help them face the situation well.

Here are a few ways of dealing with the effects of tragedies on kids:

  1. Talk to them, honestly: It is important to assure the kids that they are not alone in this world and should remember that there are many other people who love them. In case of a tragedy, kids usually have a lot of pent-up feelings inside them. You need to talk to them and make them understand that instead of keeping those feelings to themselves, they should talk to you or anyone they trust. Venting out will enable them to relax.
  2. Act on truth: It is very important to teach the children that no matter what happens in life, there is a chance to start afresh. The kids should be surrounded with people they love, as it will make them feel a little relaxed and open. Also, it is essential for them to know that there’s always hope and not all is lost.
  3. Remain calm: After a large scale tragedy, your children will usually look up to you regarding, how to react in a situation. Although it is okay for your children to see you sad or in grief, but you should keep as calm as possible and do not react intensely. This will help keep them calm and less anxious.
  4. Reassure your children about safety: You should make your children understand that they are safe and nothing bad will happen to them. They must be reassured that no harm will come upon them as you are always with them.
  5. Maintain normal routine: It is essential to give your children a feeling of normalcy. You must try to maintain their normal schedule with the usual dinner time, bed time and school time. You must pay special attention to them to make them feel more secure. You should spend extra time with them and always be there for company and reassurance for any factor.

Children are affected severely by any kind of tragedies as they are fragile and immature. Tragedies disrupt the balance of life, but you must try to make your children feel the crisis as less as possible, so that they get less hampered emotionally. A troubled childhood affects the healthy growing up of a child. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

Lets hope there are no problems in future. For now, I hope you are pumping breastmilk for feeding your baby to be fed in the ICU. That would be the best food and best medicine your baby can get to develop a strong immunity for future.

Your child needs a personal consultation with pediatrician to rule out any serious illness. If your child is having difficulty in breathing, bluish discoloration, not able to feed properly, poor activity then he needs urgent evaluation. Keep the child supported in upright/ semi reclined position while feeding, this will reduce chances of choking& regurgitation. Watch when your child cough, is there any relationship to feed, any allergy, any other symptom like fever, difficulty in breathing .sometimes occasional cough are normal.
