Teeth sensitivity due to exposed dentin or fractured enamel is common during winters. Don't neglect these symptoms. Very often these are early signs of severe dental problems.

How Can I Make Sure That My Baby's Hair Grow Well

How Can I Make Sure That My Baby's Hair Grow Well

What a  mother should expect about baby's hair growth.?

Every baby is  special in his own way. Some are bald beauties and some have heaps of hair. Hair density mostly depends upon the genetic makeup of the baby. In the initial six months of life, babies hair tend to fall. Some may become totally bald and may not show any growth for some time.This is completely normal. Most babies show new hair growth between 9 months to 12 months of life. Almost all babies have growth till their second birthday. The colour  and texture of the hair may vary from that present at birth. Curly hair can be replaced by straight hair. And thick dense hair can be replaced by thinner and sparse hair.

How to wash my baby's hair?

  • With newborn babies, In the early days the best way to wipe their hair is with a sponge. Support your baby's shoulders and head, which again should be tilted slightly, and gently pat the wet and warm sponge over the hair until it is sufficiently clean.

  • After 4-5 weeks in young babies use a small amount of baby shampoo on your baby's hair. Softly rub in a circular motion, and then use a plastic cup or your hand to rinse off the shampoo.

  • Always be gentle whenever you message a tearless baby shampoo into your baby's scalp. A too-brisk scalp massage can force hair follicles and speed up hair loss or breakage.

How often should I wash my baby's hair?

You should never wash your baby's hair everyday. Particularly with the newborns, there's just no requirement. Once, twice or on need basis baby's hairs can be washed. Instead of washing it every day, gently wipe it with a sponge daily to remove any dirt and fresh your baby up.

Which shampoo should I use?

Always use tearless nourishing natural ingredients shampoos. During first month try to avoid shampoo. Tearless shampoo can even hurt, avoid spillage in eyes. Adult shampoos should be avoided as it contains chemicals that can be toxic to the baby.

Will shaving head improve my babies hair growth?

Shaving your baby's head does not improve the hair growth. The hair just looks healthier with the dried, scraggly ends removed

My 1.4 years old baby girl have hairs on face, forehead what should I do to remove those hairs?
No need of any medicine They will vanish as the child grows Need not to worry at this age as this is common in many babies

I am working woman. I have a 3-month old son. I will be starting work in a week. Until now, I am exclusively breastfeeding my child but will need to introduce formula feed when I start going to work. Please suggest the best formula for my baby.

Pediatrician, Pune
Breast milk is the best, there is no better alternative, if your work place is close by you can take a break every 3 - 4 hrs and feed the baby in between, if the work place has facilities to keep babies, that woul also be better, if these options are not available, you can express the breast milk before going to work, that can be stored in fridge and can be fed to the baby when you are away, expressing breast milk will you to continue secreting and forming more milk required for the baby atleast till 1 year of age, breast milk is the best for baby, second alternatives would be lactogen/ nan1

Swelling of naval usually gets corrected on its own by passage of time. Urination 15-20 times is not normal. Consult pediatrician.

How is Homeopathy is Beneficial for Your Child During Exams and Result Time?

BHMS, Diploma in Diet and Nutrition
Homeopath, Lucknow

How is Homoeopathy beneficial  for your child during exams and result time?

Some Kids take tests with no tension at all, some get a bit nervous and tense, while others suffer with tummy aches, restlessness, headaches, nerves, mental dullness and an inability to focus. Just as some bodies overreact to allergens or toxins, others overreact to stresses like tests, public speaking or performing.

Fortunately homeopathy does not discriminate. Its applications include mental, emotional and physical symptoms equally. Without slowing, accelerating, depressing or stimulating mental function, our safe natural homeopathic remedies help the body steady its responses and maintain a healthier balance.

One gets the first bitter taste of stress in the adolescent years. There is pressure to perform well in exams, an anxiety whether one will be accepted by peers and to add to it all, difference in generations cause many arguments. All these lead to stress in susceptible youngsters. It is important to deal with stress at this stage because it lays foundations of the mental make up of individual for the years to come.


 

EXAM ANXIETY

The most common form of student stress is exam anxiety. Marked by a feeling of panic, the student feels upper pared for the exams, almost every student experience exam stress. To some extend exam anxiety functions as stress and motivates students to put in greater efforts while studying However, at times it gets it gets out of hand and the inevitable result is distress.


 

Initial symptoms of exam anxiety are:

  • Increased perspirations.

  • rapid heart beating.

  • Upset stomach.

  • Tense muscles.

  • Headache.

 

However when full-blow distress, then the following symptoms are observed:

  • Inability to focus and understand.

  • Difficulty in retrieving key words and concepts.

  • A ‘blank feeling when one tries to remember the answers.

  • Remembering the answers after the exam is over.

  • The unfortunate result of excess exam stress is that the student fares badly in exams in spite of having worked hard.

The other common stressors faced by a student are…

  • Failure in examinations

  • The first year’s college, requiring adjustment to new study material and people.

  • Transfer to another college/educational institutions.

  • Economic burden of higher studies.

  • Problem with teachers.

  • Being expelled or having to quit college.


 

Homoeopathic approach…

Since this form of distress spoils the performance of even the brightest of students, it becomes a matter of concern and requires treatment at the right point of time we treat distress forms of exam anxiety through a group of specific homeopathic medications. These medications function by controlling and reducing the extent of exam anxieties as perceived by the human body. These in turn work by controlling stress levels and preventing symptoms of distress from setting in, thus giving the student a chance to perform at his/her best potential.

A further advantage of the treatment that homeopathy has no side effects, like drowsiness, insomnia or trembling, unlike conventional treatment. And also we guide to our patient yoga, prename and meditations under our treatment, improved his mental ability and patient free from his mental disease.


 

Few of the problems where homoeopathy improves your child are-

  • Staying focused and sharp – common situations, such as jitters before an exam or job interview, poor concentration, exhaustion from overwork, and eyestrain from prolonged computer use.

  • Exam apprehension and stomach upset before exams.

  • Nervous before public speaking ,orals,viva or exams .

  • Poor Concentration, Stress, and Overwork.

  • Inability to relax and over-stimulated mind.

  • Eyestrain and muscle stiffness.

  • Humiliation,shame and Failure.

  • Reprimand/Criticism and Bullying.

  • Worry and Fear of failure.

  • Depression,anger,irritability  and agitation.
