Hi my son is 3.7 years old. For the past 4 days he is saying that he have pain in his stomach. He will have that pain for 3-4 time a day. But he don't have any other problems. Everything is normal. What could be the reason for his ache?

Hello thanks for the query, pain in abdomen is a very common complaint in this age. I would like to know if there is any disturbance in daily activity or bowel pattern associated with the pain. If not, then I would suggest you to give some antispasmodic like dicyclomine (coaid syrup) or drotaverine (drotin syrup) for symptomatic relief of pain. The pain is mostly due to transient colic which get relieved by the medication. If the symptom persists or condition worsens I would suggest you to consult a pediatrician for evaluation. I shall be glad to answer if you have any more doubt. Regards.

My 5.5 month old has been passing green thick smelly stool since we started him on top feed - banana, dal water, rice paste, wheat paste etc. Is this normal? There is no apparent discomfort he is suffering from.

It is normal. You may give all items but not in a day. Give him one item for 2 to 3 days and then switch over to other item gradually.

A 1 year child has to be gradually weaned to semi solids and solid foods. The process needs to start from 6 months onwards. If your child has just been introduced to semisolid, be patient and keep giving him 3 semisolid meals. You can give him multivitamin medicine till he is not accepting his feeds properly.

Irregular bowel pattern is common in small babies even if they are breastfed. Right now doesn't require any treatment. You can wait for some more time. For gas formation do proper burping.

Bedwetting is considered aa normal till 6 years. But if it has occurred after a period of good control then you have to rule out urinary tract infection and diabetes.

Fever and local sight pain could be a symptom due to vaccine but that too is very rare with the vaccine you have mentioned. So may be child is having some other infection i, e. Developing common cold or cough! wait for a day--> as if vaccine is the cause, symptoms shall disappear in a day.

Hi There is developmental delay in all spheres (motor, adaptive and social) in children with Down’s syndrome and most common genetic cause of learning disability & mental retardation. As there is no curative therapy, counseling has a central role to play in the management. Having Down's syndrome child can be challenging at times. But with help professional support, most people are able to have healthy, active and more independent lives. There are many children who have done wonders and hence take it as chanllenge and support your kid to develop and learn.

She is breast feeding now and 6 months have passed she is 32c size of breast What happens if she stops breast feeding her child and stores tht milk in her breast only.

MBBS, MD
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
Six months on breast milk is insufficient for growing child. In almost 75% case. So we recommend six hrly breast feeds. Milk stored in breast it self is never sore or unhygienic.

Treatment depends on type of rashes. If these rashes are not red and having gray or blackish white patches, this may be cradle cap. You need not to worry, just apply coconut oil as soother.
