You have not mentioned his weight. If his wt is about 12 kg, it is normal for his age. Avoid chocolates, give him good nourishing home made diet of his choice. Chocolates and other sugar rich items reduces hunger so nourishing diet. Add dry fruits in his eating items. Consult dentist for cavities. To prevent cavities, oral hygiene is important.

Golden yellow coloured loose stools are normal when the baby is on breast feeds, if the baby is gaining weight adequately, passing sufficient amount of urine, don't call it suffering from loose stool, it is ok.

You can first form a routine of eating with other members. This happens mortally with pampering our children. Then increase the quantity of food gradually. You can try cypon syrup one spoon twice a day. It have sedative property so start the drug in evening or on holidays. No driving.

How Hyperactivity of ADHD can be Controlled by Homeopathy

How Hyperactivity of ADHD can be Controlled by Homeopathy

Homeopathy and its role in treating ADHD

A brain disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is characterized by a continuous pattern of hyperactivity and inattention, resulting in interference with normal development and functioning. The term is applied to both adults and children who exhibit these two characteristics over a long period of time. The condition is usually discovered during a child's early school years, between the third and sixth year (during which he or she may display problems associated with attention) and can go on into adulthood. Although medications are available under western medical science for treating this condition, they aren't free from any side effects.

Which remedies are generally used for treating ADHD?

Homeopathic remedies can help in easing some of the symptoms of this condition, making it easy for children to take part in normal school and social activities. A homeopath prescribes the relevant remedies after having a clear understanding of your characteristics. Some of the medicines that are used for treating the condition are Cina, Hyoscyamus Niger and Stramonium. While Cina is prescribed for alleviating aggressive behavior, Stramonium is recommended for treating fears or PTSD and Hyoscyamus Niger for sexualized or manic symptoms. But the one remedy that is most preferred for treating the varied symptoms of ADHD is Tarentula Hispana.

How is homeopathy different from conventional medicine?

When it comes to the homeopathic treatment approach for ADHD, it differs from conventional western medicine in two very different ways. Firstly, the treatment is personalized to suit your needs and health condition. For this reason, the remedy that is suggested to you differs from the one that is suggested to another individual. Such an approach allows a homeopath to better help you by addressing your specific symptoms compared to the conventional treatment of ADHD. Secondly, it treats the condition using smaller doses of the remedies and not higher doses so as to not aggravate the symptoms of ADHD.

In addition to being safe and non-toxic, when these homeopathic remedies are taken along with dietary modifications and lifestyle changes, they can bring about vital improvements in your health.

Myth - Small breast can't produce sufficient milk

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS

Breast size has nothing to do with the quantity of milk produced. Large breasts just have more fat tissue, which is unrelated to milk production.

My 2 months baby's body getting sometimes hot and sometimes normal. Don't know why past 3 days it's happening.
This is normal due to weather changes. If he is active and taking milk regularly, sleeping normally if the body is warm sometimes you need not worry.
