Why Kids Are Such Cold Magnets
On average, kids under age 3 catch six to eight colds a year. "We think that since most children are encountering viruses for the first time, their immune systems aren't able to kill them as quickly as when they encounter them again. What's more, because kids aren't overly concerned about having a runny nose, the virus tends to end up on their hands, clothing, and toys--where it can live for 30 minutes. When another child touches an infected toy and then rubs her nose or eyes, she can catch the cold.

However, having lots of sniffles early in life may protect kids later on. Researchers have found that children who develop frequent colds in preschool catch fewer colds during their school years--presumably because their immune systems have learned to recognize and fight off the bugs. And a German study has found that babies who have more than one cold before their first birthday are less likely to develop asthma by age 7.

Fever due to cold is usually viral infection which gets cure on its own in 4 to 5 days. For relief you may give 7.5 ml paracetamol syrup and if nose is blocked, instill saline nasal drops in both nostrils.

Hello, it's little difficult to diagnose the problem. May be she's hungry or may be she' is having pain in abdomen or she's wet or a baby cries before every poo and pee which is normal. Need to find out the cause. Consult a paediatrician.

Just make sure your paediatrician follows the growth chart n rule out any family history of diabetes n other concerns. If already done then we can wait n watch. Breast feeding is another reason for good weight which your paediatrician would monitor each time you see them.

Infective diarrhoea is unusual in breastfed babies. Start rota virus vaccination before 16 weeks. If watery stools are continuing consult your doctor.

Hello Somtimes it happens that our kids are very sharp minded they are active but they don't make friends, they don't talk to strangers. This happens due to lack of confidence.(low confidence). You should tell some life changing stories, show your child some life changing movies, take your child on tour and vacations and let him meet some new peoples. This could help to increse your child self confidence.

Get a dilated refraction done by an ophthalmologist. Two important things which shouldn't be missed is your child's correct glass power (which maybe a plus number) and a thorough fundus examination to look for any other positive findings for headache. Thanks.

Problem of your child doesn't appear related to cricket coaching. In view of fever, headache & generalized weakness, a thorough evaluation is warranted. Pl consult your pediatrician at earliest.
