मेरे बच्चे की उम्र 3 साल की हो गई हे वो अवि वि माँ का ही दूध् पीता हे बहुत बार कोशिश की पर हल नही मिला क्या कोई उपाय हे जिस से दूध् पीना छोड दे

Child is now addicted to breast sucking whether milk is not present. You have to be very careful. First try soup. Of cereals and curd prepared at home. Self feeding is essential part. Thirdly let him sit on chair with plate in front. No request, no pampering the child. It will gradually changed to semi solid food. No one in feel sorry even if doesn't eat food. Breast should be stopped in 5 days time by keeping food every three hourly six times a day.

My daughter is about to be 9 years old. Since the age of 5/6 years she has been seen rubbing her genital portion. What could be the likely cause and what as a parent should we do?

Finding your child touching or rubbing his genitals can be very disturbing to parents who mistakenly believe that small children don't have any sexual feelings. These parents may consider the behavior a bad habit, but most of the time, it's not. Babies discover their genitals just as they learn about other body parts -- by reaching for them -- and then learn that they are a source of pleasurable sensations. The innocent repetition of what feels good is an entirely normal part of the process of self-discovery and play. Yet many adults harbor conflicted feelings about masturbation, viewing it as somehow immoral or unhealthy. When parents overreact to genital exploration, a toddler can conclude there is something wrong with him.So as a parent never react negatively when you find her rubbing her genitals but at that time try to distract her mind in some other activity.

I do not think if any medicine can be useful. Vitamin B complex and zinc may be tried for long time. However you may consult skin specilist.

Hi as you mention about water retention in the brain that is called as hydrocephalus, the treatment modalities for the same depends on the degree of the hydrocephalus, the ecological factor for which we must know the ct scan findings and ultrasonography findings, but as far as hydrocephalus is concerned, it does require medical or surgical intervention depending on the severity of the disease.

Pediatrician,
My 3 month girl baby have cold in nose. Remedy for this block ing nose. Is it serious health issue?
Not a serious health issue if it is not associated with difficulty in breathing. Noisy breathing or partially blocked nose do not need any medication in this age group. You can use saline nasal drops prescribe by pediatrician. No oral medication if there is no any running nose or cough or difficulty in breathing.

It is imperative to know if any brain damage had occurred. He should be monitored monthly by measuring head circumference and observing development. An mri may be done to see if any defect has occurred.

Kissing in the cheek once is unlikely to infect your baby with the germ. Sneezing. Cough and prolonged contact usually transmit the organism. But still there is a remote possibility of transmission of the infection. So you monitor the baby any sign of infection. The same organism may cause other disease also.

3 months is too early to stop breastfeeding. We recommend at least till the age of 2 years. You should gradually introduce semisolids one after the other instead of dumping all at a time. Birth weight usually doubles by 5 months in otherwise normal children. You can still start breastfeeding. Milk starts secreting.

Success rate doesn't depend on centres the overall success rate of ivf is 50 to 60 % only you became pregnant at the first try also why not to try that centre only.

Apply cold compress after feeding. Use nipcare cream 3-4 times daily on the affected nipple. If it is a retracted nipple try feeding with a nipple shield.

There is no treatment apart from hearing aid for hearing loss. You should also evaluate the cause of her hearing loss.
