My baby don't eat anything. I have tried everything. He is 2 years old.
Children have a natural tendency to spit out the things offered to them give for eating. Taste takes time to develop. It is recommended to give the babies only one or two things for 10 - 15 days continuously. Ultimately they develop taste.

Yes your baby did not gained the desired weight. Along with breast feeds also give top feeds whenever baby cries. Also give solid foods more frequently and keep trying varieties. Check the weight every week and consult paediatrician regularly and take proper nutritional guidance for the baby.

What Causes Iron Deficiency in Children?

CCT, FRCPCH , MRCPCH, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS

What Causes Iron Deficiency in Children?

Iron deficiency is a common condition in children. It occurs when there is a scarcity of iron in the child's system due to malnutrition. Iron is an extremely important mineral that is required for growth and development in young ones. It is used in transporting oxygen through the bloodstream and is essential for the functioning of the muscles. If the child's diet lacks iron then the condition might worsen and turn into anemia.

Children need different levels of iron intake at different ages for proper development of all mental and physical faculties. As the child gets older and reaches the age of puberty, the requirement of iron and other minerals also increases. Deficiencies can lead to various nutritional disorders that may cause severe complications.

The primary cause of iron deficiency in children is an improper diet which leads to a lack of nourishment. There are a number of other causes of the problem, some of which are as follows:

  • Low birth weight
  • Excessive intake of cow's milk at less than 2 years of age
  • Feeding exclusively on breastmilk beyond 6 months of age
  • Lead poisoning
  • Insufficient intake of lean meat
  • Pure vegetarian diet
  • Gastrointestinal disease or infection
  • Improper diet of the mother during pregnancy
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Infestation of parasites in the digestive system.

If the problem arises due to dietary deficiency, it can be easily solved by making simple modifications to the child's diet plan. If the condition stems from other factors or diseases, the child must be taken to a doctor immediately for a medical diagnosis and remedial treatment.

Ina Fanta and toddlers are expected to have atleast 8-10 infections a year. If they are active playful and growing well, nothing to worry. Saline nasal drops and paracetamol for fever are good enough.

Children below one and two years get frequent cough and cold due their general resistance is less. Some children are allergic to dust, pollution, change in weather etc. As the child keeps growing their resistance increases and the number of attacks (cough and cold) come down. But whenever child suffers take to a paediatrician and use medicines as advised. Take all the vaccinations accordingly as advised to protect and increase immunity. We cannot predict how milk a child drinks. You have to feed the baby as much as the baby drinks.

Its too early to expect so much from a child so keep calm he will overcome this problem. Almost all children have different mental abilities and memory powers. As they grow old they will develop and adapt themselves. So have patience.

Do not start with cow or buffalo milk until child crosses 1 year. Reason for crying might be colic pain so start with colic aid drops 4-5 drops 3-4 times a day, other alternative for breast feeding is formula feed which is available as lactogen or nan. I suggest you not to start formula feed if you are having enough breast milk. Continue breast milk atleast for 1 year.

For running nose put saline nasal drops frequently into each nostril. Cough for such a long duration might need evaluation.

Pediatrician,
Is baby sleeping in womb? if yes, so which time?
Baby' sleeping is different from ours. But baby will be silent and we can call it sleeping especially when the mother is active and moving. Then baby will be feeling like rocking in cradle. Baby is then active and moves at night when mother is quiet.
