My 4 years baby getting evening and early morning mild fever 99 to 100 f for last 3 days.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
If he is otherwise healthy the early morning temperature is of no significance. But check cbc, and urine routine test in a good lab and send me the results in private consultation. As it is better than open question.

Respiratory tract infection Is an important cause of mortality in under 5 children in India. If your child refuses feed, if takes rapid shallow breaths, if skin colour appear bluish, if high grade fever and cough then it is the sign of severe pneumonia. Immediately rush to hospital. If hospital too far then give first dose of antibiotics like amoxycillin clavulanic acid and relieve fever by paracetamol, cold sponging. Don't close his mouth. Allow him to breathe fresh air.
It is the timely medical treatment which matters.

My 4 year old son has accumulated wax in both ears. I consulted two doctors and both advised ear drops and said the wax will come out by itself. I wanted to know if extracting wax through vacuum or water spray is not recommended for small kids? What should I do. Please suggest.

No we should not put water or anything else in ear as more harmful. If child is getting ear pain or irritation then just ear drops as advised till paediatrician says no infection.

Congratulations on the new arrival! I am sure you already know that breast milk is the best medicine! do not worry, make sure your baby gets enough of it. Also, do not forget well-baby visits to your doctor and the immunisation as well.

Tips for Parents and Carers

Healthy eating gives kids the energy they need for their busy days.

Here are some great ways to make it easier.

Breakfast is important: it can be up to 12 hrs since their last meal, so kids need to refuel for the day ahead. Give him healthy choices like cereal and reduced fat milk, toast, fresh fruit, eggs on toast, juice and reduced fat yoghurt.

Water works: get kids into the habit of drinking water to keep them hydrated throughout the day.

Snack smart: encourage your kids to take an interest in their health early in life by planning their own healthy snacks-this will help them look for a healthy diet when they get older.

Get cooking: food is not just about good nutrition; it's one of life's great pleasures. Transform your kids into young cooks-even young children can help peel carrots, pod peas, great cheese, put together tacos or design their own healthy pizza toping. If they've helped make it, they'll be more likely to enjoy eating it.

Slow and steady: encourage them to eat slowly. This prevents overeating and helps them recognize when they're full.

Eat at the table: eating snacks and meals sitting down at the table or kitchen bench instead of in front of the tv is good habit for the whole family.

Get a balance: variety and balance are the keep to helping a child enjoy a healthy diet. Aim to eat a variety of foods each day (this depends on the age of the child) including fruit, vegetables breads and cereals, lean meat or fish and reduced fat dairy products.

Tasty exploration: encourage kids to try different food. Exposure to lots of different tastes and flavours adds excitement to meals.

Your child is grossely malnourished so prone to recurrent infections. Anyway sponge wholebody with tap water for 30 minutes & give him liquid paracetamol for immediate relief. Later on improve diet,add butter,egg & feed him more frequently.

Reduce her milk intake to 500ml. Add finger food. Make her sit with you while you eat and feed her same food.

Mother should never be aggresive. Child should be given the time learn. Some children learn much earlier than others. If they do not eat keep then without eating. They will join other children and then come back to eat. Neither pampering nor aggressive.

Your daughter's weights is at lower end of average. Babies usually become cranky at this age. This could be because of iron deficiency anemia. So give plenty of green vegetables and calorie dense food. You may ask for iron preparation to your pediatrician.

My daughter is 6 years old she has night bed wetting problem please tell me remedy.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
Bed wetting can persist in some children for a long time. You have to make changes in her routine. There should be atleast 2-3 hour gap between dinner and bedtime. Do not give any fluids before bedtime. Time when she wets the bed (it usually occurs at a more or less fixed time after sleep), then wake her up just before that time to go the toilet. These simple steps usually help. Follow them and wait.
