Hi Sir, My son is 6.5 years old, he often gets stomach ache with burps. He can't eat most of the vegetables and most of the food items. He eats only very few vegetables like spinach, amarnath leaves, bottle gourd, ridge gourd, carrot. If he eats peas, cucumber he gets sneezing. He can't eat guava and amla he gets green discharge from nose with cold symptoms. He can't take any dairy products, milk causes bloating curd and other milk products causes cough and throat phlegm. He is underweight. He takes junior lanzol 15 mg twice and Sucrafil 500 mg thrice when he falls sick. Please advise how to overcome these issues and help my son lead normal healthy life.

Hi It seems as a parent you are suffering from lot of food fads. Cough and cold in young children are not related to food. I know that it is hard to turn around the deep seated belief that some cold food is causing him coughing and sneezing. Guava, Amla and other citrus fruits are great source of vitamin c that will protect him from seasonal cough cold. If milk cause bloating it is extremely necessary to give him other milk products viz curd, paneer, cheese etc to get adequate calcium. Get over these food fads, Give him everything to eat. He will grow out of cough, cold if he is well nourished. Even 6-7 episodes of cough cold in a year doesn't harm children in long run. But poor nutrition will definitely. If he gets sneezing, cough very frequently enough to make him feeling sick andrestrict his play, school etc then only you need to be worried. Get him to a pediatrician for evaluation to know if he has any allergies causing cough and sneezing and accordingly will be treated. Common cold is very common that's why it's named common cold. Best wishes.

MD Pediatric
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Hi As the test result says, there is lower chances of your baby getting affected by Down's syndrome. But these tests doesn't have 100 percent detection rate so best result that they can give is low risk. So relax and follow up with your gynaecologist regularly. Best wishes.

Hi 1.At 6-8 months babies should have semisolid food with consistency thick enough to not fall from spoon if it is tilted. They should get 2-3 spoon 6 times a day with frequent breastfeeding. 2. Type of food: cereal and pulse mix in 2: 1 ratio made as khichri, porridge Sprouted cereals and pulse roasted and ground as powder and mixed with milk Add sugar/ jaggery, oil/ ghee to make it more energy rich. Follow up monthly/ once in 2 weeks if baby is faltering in growth. Best wishes.

Does lack of oxygen at the time of early childhood result in fit in the long run? Is it curable in adulthood? My doctor says it is different from epilepsy. The patient is around 42. Please guide.

MD
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Yes lack of oxygen supply to brain lead to brain cell damage which may manifest as seizure or epilepsy in long run. Brain cells damaged in childhood can not be repaired but manifestations can be controlled with drugs. Appropriate antiepileptic drugs should be given to patient to keep him seizure free. Antiepileptic drugs doesn't have a blanket rule for dosage. Each patient individually needs titration of drug dosage and doctor see what dose suits him. It requires patience. Target is to control seizures completely because each seizure episode itself decrease oxygen supply to brain and further damages brain.

My 6 year girl sick several times. She affected cola and cough. Please give any medicine for her weight only 1 kg.
Edit your question. Probably her weight is 10 kg. Still it is low for 6 years old child. Get herself evaluated by a pediatrician. She needs proper growth assessment and the reason behind poor growth. Whether it is repeated infection causing poor growth or vice versa should be properly evaluated and advised accordingly.

According to you she has developed non verbal language. So she probably understands things. Get her hearing assessment done and if required speech therapy can be started. By 2 years age child should develop 2 word sentences. You should see if her early language milestones were also delayed. When she started saying mama, papa. Some more questions need to be asked for other causes of language delay like autism. Get her assessed thoroughly.

These are symptoms of mineral deficiency. Get her evaluated by pediatrician to look for other signs of iron and calcium deficiency. Lab test for iron and calcium level in blood may be required. Deworming is also needed. You give her nutritious diet rich in calcium and iron. Give her plenty of milk products and green vegetables. If she is mainly on milk based diet, introduce family food in her diet. If you are already using iron and calcium supplements keep a gap of 2 hours between them as calcium interferes with iron absorption.

What is the home remedy for running nose of a child. Please share a remedy which I can do at home.
To comfort a child with running nose give him humidified air with warm water. You can keep room humidified with water vapours. If the child is more than 1 year use honey. For child younger than 1 year honey poses risk of botulism.

Hi Doctors, I having son 3.5 years old, he pass motion since 4 days 3 to 4 times, getting heavy smell, and also last week went hospital as paediatrician opinion they gave loose motion tablet before bed time gave to him, but there is no symptom. Kindly help me.

MD
Pediatrician, Mumbai
For young children most common cause of loose motion is rotavirus diarrhoea. Children mostly don't need antibiotics except when there is bloody / mucous diarrhoea or child has other symptoms other than loose motion. Smell doesn't signify much except that food is probably not fully digested because of low transit time. You keep child hydrated with oral rehydration solutions. If child develops fever, has decreased urine frequency, develop poor activity consult doctor immediately. Mostly loose motion if non complicated subsides on itself in approx 1 week.

Get her evaluated by pediatrician to rule out other associated problems. As far as craniosynostosis treatment is concerned, it is problem of skull construction so only surgery will be useful. Medicine can be given only for associated problems if any.

It depends on what kid is suffering from. Antibiotics acts against bacteria. So if child is suffering from some illness caused by bacteria he should be treated with appropriate antibiotics. In children frequent episodes of common cold (viral) is quite common. If they are growing normally they just need comforting measures during the episode not antibiotics.

Your child needs a personal consultation with pediatrician to rule out any serious illness. If your child is having difficulty in breathing, bluish discoloration, not able to feed properly, poor activity then he needs urgent evaluation. Keep the child supported in upright/ semi reclined position while feeding, this will reduce chances of choking& regurgitation. Watch when your child cough, is there any relationship to feed, any allergy, any other symptom like fever, difficulty in breathing .sometimes occasional cough are normal.

Hi, you need to eat balanced diet. You eat what you normally eat spicy/ non spicy whatever suits you. You just need to increase your diet for increased demand during breast feeding. So add one meal and take snacks in between. Take increased amount of protein in form of egg (best), non veg food or add pulses, soyabeen in your diet. You need 300kcal and 25gm protein extra. Keep yourself hydrated with 3-4 litres of fluid daily. I had heard some senior doctor saying, when you give cow's milk to baby do you ever see what cow eats. So don't worry about your food passing to baby. Baby will take only milk. Just keep yourself healthy and happy.

Breastfeeding should be continued till 2 years age though in decreased frequency as compared to first 6 months. During weaning babies show likes or dislikes for various food. If you want to continue breastfeeding offer her breastfeed sometimes in a day. Don't force the child as they are already stressed to accept new tastes and food daily. Offer her if she refuse its fine, try again next time. Add milk and milk products in her diet if she is not taking breastmilk at all. You can use various formulas available for more than 6 months babies. Avoid cows milk till 1 year age.

Babies should triple their birthweight by first birthday. If your baby is not gaining weight properly since birth on adequate breast feed get her evaluated by pediatrician to rule out causes other than nutrition deficiency. If she gained good weight till exclusive breastfeeding take dietary advice.
