Hi. Is it safe to use 3 wheel baby cart (push walker)? Does that help to make them learn walking soon.? As my son is going to start with 16th month soon but dose walk yet. And every single doc has been saying NO for normal walker.
CAKUT or Congenital Anomalies of the Kidney and Urinary Tract is a group of simple to life-threatening malfunction or malformation of the ureters, kidney, bladders, testis, penis or female genitalia. These malformations are present from the birth when the genital or urinary system of the fetal starts developing. In young children, this kind of malformations can lead to renal transplantations and kidney failures. The primary cause of this kind of congenital problem with the urinary tract is genetic while other possible cause can be due to the environment.
Some of the most common Congenital problems with the urinary tract are:
- Bladder Exstrophy: One of the most common congenital problems in children is bladder malformation. In this case, the bladder is flattened in shape and not round. So it will be exposed on the abdominal walls. This, in turn, will result in widely separated pelvic bones. Thus the function of female genitalia, penis and prostate will be affected. There are different types of Exstrophy and surgeries required for correcting them.
- Undescended Testes: Usually, in the abdomen area, the testicles are formed. After the formation, they pass from the abdominal wall muscles and twist to the local place. This happens in the last few weeks of the pregnancy and is seen only in 5 percent of full-grown boys. Most of the times, testicles fall to the normal place in the first 6 months of their life. Any abnormality in the testicles or missing testicles can be due to problems in the testicular blood vessels or due to loss of blood flow to that particular area. Surgical and nonsurgical therapies like hormone management can be used to treat this kind of congenital problem.
- Vesicoureteral Reflux: The Ureter is the tube in the human body that carries the urine from the kidneys to the bladder. When there is Vesicoureteral Reflux problem, then the urine flows back in the ureter. When the reflux of urine takes place, then that will get detained in that area and can cause damage to the kidneys. There are basically two types of Vesicoureteral Reflux and the primary condition is congenital problems. This problem can also be treated with the help of surgical and nonsurgical methods.
- Hydronephrosis: Another very common congenital problem with the urinary tract in children is Hydronephrosis. The flow of the urine from the kidney can be prevented by any obstruction. This obstruction can result in fluids getting filled in the organs. There can be many disorders or problems associated such as Multicystic Dysplastic Kidney, Posterior Urethral Valve, Ureteropelvic Junction Obstruction and Idiopathic Hydronephrosis. There can be many other problems also associated along with these.

The child’s serial order among the siblings the siblings is one of them. It has an influence on the individual’s personality and patterns of behavior e.g. a second born child plays a ‘satellite’ role in many of his interactions with the older, since the first born may act as the natural leader of the siblings in the family constellation. How ordinal positions, the two most important of which is the sex of the child and how individuals feel about the roles they are expected to play.
First Born :
Behave in more mature way because of association with adults also they are expected to assume responsibilities and so leadership abilities are more developed.
Present to serve as models for younger siblings and to assume some of their care.
Tend to be under pressure of living up to the parents’ wishes.
Have feelings of insecurity and resentment as a result of more attention being given to the second born siblings.
Usually are high achievers because of parental pressures and expectations and a desire to win back parental approval if they feel, they are being replaced by the younger siblings.
Learn to be independent and adventure; some as a result of greater freedom, having fewer responsibilities than first born which they often interpret as inferiority. This often discourages the development of leadership qualities.
Become resentful or try to emulate the other’s behavior when compared unfavorably with an older sibling.
Act up and break rules to attract parental attention to themselves and take it away from older or younger siblings.
Develop the habit of being underachievers as a result of fewer parental expectations and less pressure to achieve.
Last born :
Experience good social relationships outside the home and are generally popular but infrequently have leadership’s qualities because of lack of willingness to assume responsibilities.
Tend to be happy because parents of attention and ‘spoiling’ from family members during early childhood.
Are usually protected by parents from physical or verbal attack by older siblings and this encourage dependency and irresponsibility.
Tend to be willful and demanding as a result of less strict discipline and spoiling by the family members.
