All About Depression in Children

Depression in children is not a very uncommon phenomenon. But if the feeling of sadness persists over a period of time with little or no change to their behavior, then it can be seen as a symptom of depression. Children who are suffering from depression need immediate and utmost care as negligence may cause severe long term effects on the child. Read on to find more about them.

Symptoms:
Symptoms that indicate childhood depression vary. Some of the different symptoms which indicate depression are:

  1. Social withdrawal
  2. Irritability
  3. Feeling of worthlessness
  4. Difficulty in concentrating
  5. Reduced ability to function during events
  6. Continuous feelings of sadness
  7. Physical complaints

Causes:

  1. Depression in children can be caused due to the combination of a multitude of reasons.
  2. Children from a family history of depression are more likely to be suffering from depression.
  3. Similarly if the parents suffer from depression then it is more than likely that the child will also suffer from depression.
  4. Children from conflicted families or children and teens who are prone to substance or alcohol abuse can suffer from depression.
  5. Reasons such as physical health, environment, genetic vulnerability or biochemical disturbance can lead to depression.

Treatment:
The treatment process of depression in children is similar to that of adults and can be treated with psychotherapy and medication. If your child is depressed consult a general physician who after his or her diagnosis may refer you to a psychiatrist. The medical specialist will recommend psychotherapy.

In some instances, a child suffering from depression maybe be suicidal. Parents are advised to be vigilant and observe certain behavioral changes that the child may have adapted to or suddenly switched to.
Some of the signs are mentioned below:

  1. Changes in eating, sleeping or activities
  2. Isolating oneself even from family
  3. Talking of suicide, feeling helpless or hopeless
  4. Increased risk taking behavior
  5. Substance abuse
  6. Giving away possessions

Sessions at first and then opt for antidepressant medication if no significant progress is seen. The best results often result from a combination of prescribed medication along with multiple sessions of psychotherapy.

In the first 10 days babies will lose upto 10% of birth weight and thereafter they should gain 30- 50 grams per day if growth is fine, This way you can work out and this rate of growth is in first 3 months and then changes.

You need to consult a physician for your diabetes problem. As far as your child is concerned your diabetes will not affect your child with your breast milk. Need not worry!

Keep baby, s belongings separately, don't touch them or baby without washing your hands, don't sneeze near baby. Still even after these precautions your baby may carry cold, but don't worry its a self limiting minor ailment. Baby may not get cold at this age because of mother born immunity.

I would suggest you to take him to pediatrician and make sure everything is okay after the fall. This will also help you relax and not worry unnecessarily. If he is okay yoh will be at ease and if he needs any medical attention doctor will be able to help. Hope this helps wishing best for both you and your baby.

When the child do no sleep at night and irritable most common cause of it is that the child get hungry at night or he might be suffering from flatulence. Feed him at night with solid food. Tie him diaper at night during sleep.

DMB

A 3 month old baby needs only breast feeding. Keep him dry and talk to him a lot. For improving mental function show colorful balls and hang toys above his cot. Also give just dee drops (vit d) 1 ml daily for 6 months.
