Detailed examination for any neurological defect is required to know extent & cause. Birth injury is most likely cause of this deficit. Physiotherapy is beneficial & outcome depends on extent of damage to nerves.

. If you keep ice that would help to reduce the pain and feel relaxed and comfortable. You shall also do hot water fermentation that would improve the blood circulation to the painful area and thereby the pain would be reduced.

With diabetic kids, Teachers should be more attentive and allow enough loo-breaks, oversee their food, and monitor their physical activity.

Could you please suggest a Syrup for feeding mother to get sufficient breast milk for the baby?

Most of drugs are not having any benefits. A hence I personally do not give medicine but like mother let child suck more that will increase the milk output.

Is it safe to feed horlicks and fruit juice to an infant other than formula milk?

General Physician,
Is it safe to feed horlicks and fruit juice to an infant other than formula milk?
It is better to avoid formula and give only breast milk. You tell the age of the infant. Fruit juice can be given and horlicks also. Always give more natural vitamins in food form. Ask me in case of doubts.

My 3 years old son has difficulty in speaking, he can babble but can’t speak and point his finger towards the desired objects. Instead he use to take us by holding our hand to the desired object example towards AC switch or Refrigerator door. He can’t even speak Mama, Papa and can’t point when asked about them. Had a poor eye contact. He is physically fit with all emotions, plays game on mobile. He has been doubted with ASD but the assessment is still pending. We have been advised to do BERA and EEG Tests which appears normal. His MRI report is has some deviation from normal which needs to be understood. Investigation: MRI Brain Plain Results: Multiplanar Mr. imaging of the brain was done. TIW, TSE-T2W and FLAIR images were obtained in three orthogonal planes. The study shows small hyperintensities on FLAIR involving peritrigonal region/occipital region on both the sides, possibly incomplete myelination Rest of the brain parenchyma appears normal. The basil cisterns and superficial subarachnoid CSF spaces are normal. Ventricles appear prominent. The mid brain, pons and medulla are normal. The cerebellar hemispheres are normal. Visualized parts of the sella, 5 th, 7 th and 8 th nerve complexes are grossly normal on routine brain imaging. Major flow voids are present. Advice: Clinical Correlation. Please help me to understand the report. Regards,

You should ignore all non verbal requests & child will express verbally may not be very clear in begining but. This will improve with time. Communicate with him verbally in correct way wth patience. Leaving him amongst other kids is also very effective way to develope speech.

Most common cause, either your baby is demanding milk or she is not feeling comfortable if she is not sick. Look for it.

You have mentioned, he doesn't like but not what he likes. His wt is definitely very low to his age. If he is not suffering from any ailment, give him all home made well cocked nutritious rich in caloric value edibles, he likes. Don't thrust your like on him. If he doesn't like milk, give him milk made products like curd, kheer and alike. Add ghee in his diet.

Taking kids to the dentist is necessary to keep their teeth healthy and promote excellent oral hygiene habits. But from a child's point of view, a trip to the dentist can be a scary event -- lying on a chair in an unfamiliar room filled with unfamiliar noises and objects, all while a stranger is poking cold, metallic, and unusual instruments in his mouth. Plus, as your child's teeth continue to fall out and grow, he may take at least 10 trips to the dentist before starting kindergarten. To help ease future visits for your child (and for the dentist!), follow these steps so that he will feel comfortable and more relaxed.

Health Tip For Kids

Eating breakfast, even if it's just a banana and a glass of milk, kick-starts the body and makes it easier to maintain lasting energy throughout the day.

If you can get your kids to establish the habit of eating a good breakfast at a young age, it should stay with them as they get older.

Till 6 months not advisable to go towards semisolid feed. For working mother advisable to go for formula feeds or top milk in form of cow milk with added sugar. Word of caution here is, no feed is superior than breast feeds in first 6 months of age of an infant.

At the age of 15 yrs as per your information if correct this girl is a case of short stature because 137.2 cm for this girl falls below 3 sd for the age and sex. You have noticed late so without wasting time you should consult any pediatric endocrinologist as early as possible. As wt is also less so there can be some systemic illness which is not obvious but chronic.

Consult a Pediatrician immediately & get your baby evaluated. Crying a lot, refusing food etc. May be an indication of some underlying physical problem. As babies at this age cannot express themselves, so as a mother you should always observe him for any change of behavior & habits, which will give you lots of indication regarding his inner health. Along with, continue breast feeding & eat nutritious diet.
