It seems to be more problem of fast market recipe. Hence you should reduce oil and ghee in home diet and avoid fast food. Sweets should also reduce in diet.

My 8 year old son normally behave very well. But some times he gets too angry, specially at the time of study and eating. His angriness comes from his inner side which reflects in his face. After some time again he becomes normal. Is his behaviour normal? Does he require any counselling?

Dear lybrate-user, Tank for your question. Teach your child about peaceful ways to express her anger. Most people feel anger and aggression sometimes -- including children. Adults tend to have better control over their behavior when these feelings arise. Children, however, may turn their energy toward violent behavior such as kicking, biting, or hitting. I suggest online consultation. Take care.

My 2.5 years old daughter catches cold quite often. Is there any medicine to boost immunity?

Runny nose is a part of childhood. If she has mouth breathing, sneezing or repeated ear infections, then you need to worry. Have you given all the vaccines? does she go to play school?

No role of any appetite stimulants. His weight is appropriate for his age. So do not worry if child does not eat if he is alert active playful and responsive. Cough and cold is very common in this age. Home made remedies like Tulsi ka karha honey are enough in most cases unless your child is having high grade fever with rapid respiration persistent vomiting then consult pediatrician. For constipation avoid milk and milk products noodes maida give plenty of vegetables fruits juice. Best wishes Arun shah Muzaffarpur.

Home diet is the best diet for children upto 2 years or more. So just make him eat what you all eat at home except non vegetarian and spicy dishes.

It may not be umblical cord which falls in about 10 days. It must be umblical stump which may ooze serous. Leave stump as such keep it open and clean. Take care scab formed over it, is not removed.

Hello, Thanks for the query. What your daughter has, is Common Cold in which the airway tubes get coated with mucous and makes them thinner making the passage of air difficult. Asthalin is a bronchodilator (medication which will melt the mucus accumulated in the airway). This melted mucus comes out as a cough, vomiting or in motion. It is commonly used in congestion for children of that age.

My son is 9 year old, he has habit of bed wetting. I am worried. What should i do?

MD - Alternate Medicine, DNHE, BHMS

Avoid giving him water 2 hours before bed time. Instruct him to hold urination process for 2 to 3 seconds, even if he has to pass it. This exercise during day time will increase sphincter control in him. If things are not working homeopathic treatment will work marvelously.

He does not need any medicines at all.Correct councelling is needed to manage his behaviour disorder.To begin with,do not get disturbed ,only you can correct his behaviour, Accept & appreciate all good done by him. Never scold or slap for wrong doings but never accept his undue demands.Offer him foods at 2-3 hours but never force even he does not eat for a day.Talk to him without any prejudice.Soon he realises that his undue demands will not be fulfilled & appreciated for good .

Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Surgery - Why It Is Done?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Jaipur
Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Surgery - Why It Is Done?

Cleft lip and cleft palate are the two most common birth defects affecting children all over the world. What happens in the cleft lip is that the upper lip is incompletely formed and in cleft palate abnormalities, we see babies with an incompletely formed roof of the mouth. Both these can be found individually or can occur together. These conditions can be severe or mild and affect one or both sides of the face.

Causes
The fEtus undergoes the separation of the upper lip and the roof of the mouth pretty early. In certain cases, this separation does not happen or happens incompletely and certain parts of the upper lip and roof of the mouth fail to form properly leading to cleft lip and palate.

Repair through surgery

  1. Plastic surgery is the only way to repair a cleft lip and/or palate. Both of these impair vital functions like speaking, eating, breathing, and hearing properly.
  2. Surgery is done to restore function and to make the affected child look more normal.
  3. Most cleft lip and palate surgeries are done on very young children usually 3 months to a year old.
  4. Before the actual surgery, a team of specialist define a course of treatment, including repair of the cleft using surgery, which means plugging the hole in the lip or the palate; speech rehabilitation and dental restoration, as the child usually has no teeth in the affected parts of the upper palate.

The specialists required are:

  1. Plastic surgeon
  2. Pediatric dentist
  3. Ear, nose, and throat specialist
  4. Auditory or hearing specialist

What happens during surgery?
Usually, cleft lip surgery happens in children as young as 3-6 months old. It has to be carried out under general anaesthesia. If the condition is severe, and the cleft lip is wide, special procedures like lip adhesion or a moulding plate are used to bring the two parts of the lip closer and it is fully repaired.

Cleft palate repair surgery is done at the age of 9-12 months only.
What happens here is that plastic surgeons bring together the muscles of the upper soft palate and rearrange them to cover the gaping hole in the roof of the mouth. The surgery is usually done under general anaesthesia and requires a short hospital stay.

  • Without a normal palate, the child can’t speak properly. So, surgery helps to improve and normalise speech.
  • And that’s not all. The child may require more surgeries as he grows older to treat these two problems.
  • This is because the child’s facial structure changes and he or she may require advanced surgeries like pharyngoplasty, which helps improve speech, or alveolar bone grafts to provide stability for permanent teeth.
  • A bone graft is usually done when the child is 6-10 years old and it closes gaps in the bone or gums near the front teeth. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pediatrician.

Dear lybrate-user, as your son is already six months old, you should start weaning food, like veelac first, cerelac stage-1 in addition to mother's milk and lactogen. Gradually start feeding khichri, smashed food etc.

Pediatrician, Pune
His one nostril is always blocked, kindly get evaluated by ent surgeon, you never know these children can put anything in the nose, rule out any foreign body that he might have put in his nose, if not an ent surgeon would help you in diagnosing the condition, he needs a thorough ent evaluation.

Poops in 2-3 days is not abnormal if stool is not too hard to pass, Give him fibrous diet and good quantity of water to drink. Train him for toileting practice by encouraging to make him sit daily or twice in a day on pot for some time.
