This is normal pattern of sleep at this age. In the night if last feed is given at about 10, child awakes at about 4 in morning. Take care of her comfort at night. You have not mentioned her wt. Average Wt at this age is 10 kg. Give her all edibles in house of her choice, not to be forced.

Why Homeopathy Is Best Applied in Childhood?

BHMS

Why Homeopathy Is Best Applied in Childhood?

Homeopathy is a natural and mild form of medication. The remedies are natural substances, which have been diluted and potentized. Homeopathic medicines are best applied during childhood and work very effectively with children. A child's self-defense or immunity gets stimulated naturally towards a healthier state without any kind of side effects. Homeopathic remedies are very safe, effective and mild. They are especially effective for children, on the grounds that the remedies work by stimulating vitality of a child's body. Children have a higher vitality naturally and thus, homeopathic medicines are extra effective during childhood. Moreover, homeopathic medicines are soft globules, which dissolve in the mouth. They are easy to take and have a sweet, pleasant taste as well.

Here is a list of diseases and disorders, which are common during the childhood along with their homeopathic remedies.

Teething:

  1. Chamomilla is used in case of painful teething during childhood. It is used when a child has got one hot cheek and one cold cheek.
  2. Coffea Cruda may be used to treat restlessness in teething children.
  3. Calcarea Phosphorica is another homeopathic remedy used for delayed and difficult teething in children.

Colic:

  1. Dioscorea is the common homeopathic medicine for treating colic cramps in the abdomen.
  2. Colocynthis is also used to relieve intense cramps and pain in children. The irritability factor of the pain is treated.
  3. Magnesia Phosphorica treats colics with spasmodic or intermittent characteristics.

Fever:

  1. Aconite is an effective homeopathic remedy for treating sudden fever. The child's skin is likely to be hot, and the temperature of the cheeks may differ.
  2. Ferrum Phosphoricum is used for treating fever that occurs due to inflammatory problems. This kind of fever gives you pale, red cheeks.

Irritability and restlessness:

  1. Passiflora is an ideal homeopathic relaxant for children.
  2. Avena Sativa is used when a child cannot sleep due to restlessness.
  3. Kali Phosphorica treats restlessness in children occurring because of over stimulation.
  4. Magnesia Phosphorica and Natrum Phosphoricum are other homeopathic medicines, which act as relaxants.

Cough and Cold:

  1. Ipecac is the best homeopathic remedy for constant coughing along with nausea.
  2. Aconitum Napellus is used when a child wakes up from sleep with a dry, hoarse cough.
  3. Spongia Tosta cures cold, croup and cough which start from the throat.
  4. Antimonium Tartaricum is the homeopathic medicine used when mucous accumulates in the chest, giving rise to coughing.

Homeopathy is best applied in childhood as a child is at risk of developing a number of diseases. A child's body is delicate and much more sensitive than adults and is prone to getting affected easily. Moreover, homeopathy is natural and is the safest form of medicine for children. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

-drink plenty of fluids (veg/tomato soups, dal water/coconut water/herbal tea etc), and eat nutritious food (like sprouts). Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine -treatment: a cold usually lasts for a week or two. Gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. Take only lukewarm water to drink during the day -use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation. -tablet nasorest-p once/twice daily may ease breathing. -do steam inhalation once or twice daily.

Treatment of distal (type 1) and proximal (type 2) renal tubular acidosis. The approach to therapy in distal (type 1) and proximal (type 2) renal tubular acidosis (rta) is determined by the primary defect in each disorder: decreased distal acidification and impaired proximal bicarbonate reabsorption, respectively how rta is treated depends on what's causing it. If it's a reaction to a certain drug, treatment may involve stopping use of the drug or changing the dosage. If an underlying disease or other condition is causing rta, it will be treated until that condition resolves. To treat the effects of rta, it's necessary to restore a normal acid level to the blood. To do this, doctors prescribe alkaline medicines, such as sodium bicarbonate, that help to lower the blood's concentration of acid. Most of the time, treatment for rta is effective. Kids whose rta is caused by a genetic defect may need treatment for the rest of their lives. The good news is that sticking with their treatments lets kids remain healthy.

Above report is more in favor of Iron/ multi nutritional deficiency anemia. Blood transfusion increases Hb temporarily. Intermittent fall of Hb may be due to interrupted treatment and lack of nutritional diet as indicated by constant wt at 9 kg. To improve his wt and normalize Hb, give him Iron, B Complex, Vit C and other micro nutrients and continue at least for about 3 months after Hb comes to normal, add oil/ ghee in his nutritious diet for wt gain.

Both medicines should not be used either individual or in combination. Paracetamol is safer. These medicines are not useful in cough or cold unless there is fever.

I am 33 years. I have given birth to a girl baby on december 30th with normal delivery. Still i am not able to feed my daughter with breast milk. I have tried all the steps to increase molk supply but not able to produce milk. Could anyone help me with this?

Young Mothers always think that their milk is not sufficient. Don't be disheartened. The more you feed , the better will be the supply of breast milk. Drink a lot of water, eat nourishing food and continue taking iron and calcium supplements. If the baby is passing urine frequently and stool normally and gaing weight nicely, you can be sure that you are producing enough milk.

It's common in that age because of increased activity. It is called a s growing pain. Local application of analgesic gel at night will give relief. Give calcimax p suspension 5 ml twice daily for a few months.

No. You should not do anything with the newborn head. It will assume its normal shape in due course. What people say is only a myth.
