No never. This is a normal cycle for first 4 months of age. As during pregnancy when mom walks, baby swings like a jula, and even mom sleeps. The pendulum movement of baby stops in side tummy is his mom, so they get awake. So same sleep cycle continues post birth also. For atleast 4 months. Make sure child takes feeding well during night and gradually it would improve.

If milk supply is high you can continue to give him. Instead of tablet you apply bitter creams or put a plaster over the nipple to prevent him

3 Common Skin Problems in Teenagers

MBBS
Dermatologist, Gurgaon
3 Common Skin Problems in Teenagers

Problems with the skin during the teenage years are very common. Although skin issues can be really stressful, the right skin care treatment can help in controlling the problems you may face during this time. Here are some of the skin issues that you may face at this stage of life and ways to prevent them:

Oily Skin: Oily skin is a very common occurrence during teenage years. To a certain extent, oily skin may be due to genetics but for some, it may be due to hormonal changes that cause excess oil to be produced on the skin surface. In order to not inflame the skin further, individuals with oily skin shouldn't overly scrub their skin as well as not use harsh cleansers to clean the face. More importantly, when you do use a cleanser on your face, you should only do so two times a day. If you go overboard, it would only do more harm than good.

Acne: Whether it is blackheads, whiteheads or spots filled with pus, acne affects about 80% of teenagers at some point in their lives. Teenagers are more prone to this problem because the hormone levels during this time are especially high, resulting in an increase in the magnitude of sebaceous glands and the oil that is produced. When too much oil is produced, this, along with dead skin cells block, the follicles, giving rise to acne. There are certain ways in which you can prevent it from occurring, such as always having a bath after any strenuous activity, not picking or touching the problem areas and washing acne-prone spots only two times a day.

Excessive Sweating: Excessive sweating is another major cause of concern for teenagers. The problem can be due to two different conditions - stress or hyperhidrosis (a condition wherein you sweat excessively on a daily basis). Wearing clothes made from cotton, using antiperspirants as well as avoiding drinks and foods that may cause episodes of excessive sweating are some of the ways in which you can keep the problem in control.

What is the treatment for a child of 18 Months who is having cystic hygroma on left neck. please reply soon.
Cystic hygroma can be treated very effectively with Homeopathy. Was it present since birth? A very common suggestion is get it operated. But if you treat it with homeopathy and have some patience and use homeopathy, it will be gone in a few months and homeopathy will improve the immunity also.

If your child is allergic to some food item or dust you need to take care and avoid these which might be reason for her cold and cough. You can start her with sitophaladi churna, mix a pinch of powder in one teaspoonfull of honey and give daily at bed time.

BHMS

Hello.Eosinophilic fasciitis is a rare disease that leads to inflammation and thickening of the skin and fascia underneath. In patients with eosinophilic fasciitis, the involved fascia is inflamed with the eosinophil type of white blood cells. This leads to symptoms of progressive thickening and often redness, warmth, and hardness of the skin surface.Meet your physician in person for the proper treatment.

If he is unfair , no massage can make him fair as the colour / complexion is genetically controlled and we have no control over it . Till 4 months give exclusive breast milk and then start all home made foods , fruits for health

She is having nasal allergy and therefore nose block and sore throat and repeated cough. Unless her nasal allergy gets treated cough will not stop. Cough is due to persistent trickling of nose secretions from the back of nose over throat.

5 Habits Parents Should Teach Their Children

DNB Paediatrics, DCH, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
5 Habits Parents Should Teach Their Children

Parents are responsible not only for the birth of the child, but also for their well-being. For children, their parents are their first teachers, who inculcate in them the right manners, attitudes and habits. Consequently, you too must be careful in deciding what habits and manners you pass down to your children. 

Some of the habits that you should teach your children are:

  1. Eating healthy food: Children always have the propensity to consume junks and avoid healthy food. It is the duty of the parents to correct this and teach their kids to eat healthy food. You must explain and elucidate the importance and nutritional value of eating healthy food. At the same time, the harm caused by the junk food must also be brought to their notice. You should introduce multiple fruits and green vegetables in the diet. Eating healthy food is a habit that reaps great benefits in the long run.
  2. Table manners: Children eating on their own generally create a mess. Therefore, you must teach your child the right table manners. When to use spoon or fork and what should be the etiquettes that must be observed while eating with a large group of people must be known to a child. You should begin to treat your child as a grown up as he or she sits at the table.
  3. Regular brushing of the teeth: The importance of teeth is most acutely felt with advanced age. Therefore, it is imperative that you teach your children to take good care of their teeth. You must educate your child about the necessity of good teeth and see to it that they brush daily and twice a day. Brushing in the morning as well as before going to sleep is equally important and the child must be aware of it.
  4. Early to bed: It is necessary for children to get adequate sleep. Therefore, you must make it a habit from the very start to put them to sleep early and see to it that that they get sufficient rest.
  5. Play outdoors: You must make it a habit for your children to play outside more often. Staying at home without any activity has serious repercussions like obesity and lethargy. Therefore, it is extremely important that children involve in sufficient physical activity.
