My baby boy is 3 months old and he is suffering from cold for last 15 days. He is taking ALEX plus drop for last 7 days. Does this medicine cause sweating for baby? And how long it takes to cure his cold?

HI. Alex plus syrup contains Paracetamol which reduces body temperature which can cause sweating. If cold is lasting since so many days then its better you get baby examined. Take care!

Preventing Thumb Sucking in Children

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.

Milk for kids
A study suggests that two cups of milk a day is ideal for toddlers. Consuming more than that can reduce iron stores raising the risk of anaemia
Also says children from age one to till eight needs two cup of milk and from nine to 18 need three cups of milk or its equivalent each day

My daughter is 2 months old. She hardly sleeps for 10-12 hours in a day. Can my taking 3-4 cups of tea affect her sleeping habits and make her awake.

Thanks for reaching out. Please clarify whether in 24 hours she sleeps for 10 to 12 hours. That should be enough. Is she drinking milk well and active at times she is awake it is fine. You take 2 to 3 cuos of tea. That will not affect the baby's sleep. You can eat more nutricious food such as porridge or milk instead of tea.

Most of the watery stools are due to viruses and they take few days to resolve. Ensure proper oral intake and hydration. Continue zinc for 14 days and enterogermina. Warm regards.

Bottle feeding is a very unhealthy practice for the health of your baby. You must stop it completely and gradually she will start sucking breast. Exclusive breast milk.
