You should have trained child to take solids around 6 months. Any way treat child with patience & explain him correct way & importance of solid diet. Tell him he has grown up and does not require breast milk anymore.

Most of cough suppressent and antibiotics in cough and cold is not desirable due to untoward side effects remember largest number if cases of cough and cold with without fever are viral and thus subside in less than a week at most you can try home made remedy like karha honey garlic. However if cough and fever is persistent beyond 7 days please consult your doctor. 3 phials of tixylix and antibiotics is not at all justified.

My child is 4 year old. And his behavior is not normal. He can not constraints in any task. Always angry. Always arguing with us. Speak too much but that related to nothing. What should I do?

BHMS, VLIR Belgium, Canadian Academy Of Homeopathy
Homeopath, Navi Mumbai
This is a a very common child problem. You should not think that he is doing it purposely. This anger and agitation is a problem which needs medical attention. It can be definitely treated with homeopathy. Make sure that the parents do not have conflicts and and anger scenes in front of the kid. Many times they copy the same. Homeopathic medicines can calm down such kids very naturally without any side effects. You can contact for further help. One home remedy you can try is massaging him with sesame oil in the evening and putting it on the head before bed, it can calm down his nerves and he may feel a bit calmer.

It could be a febrile seizure. Where you have to be watchful for fever as it has a tendency to recur. However no treatment is needed for first seizure but detail evaluation should be done.

Thumb Sucking

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Thumb Sucking

Most children stop sucking on thumbs, pacifiers or other objects on their own between 2 and 4 years of age. No harm is done to their teeth or jaws until permanent teeth start to erupt. The only time it might cause concern is if it goes on beyond 6 to 8 years of age. At this time, it may affect the shape of the oral cavity or dentition.
Thumbsucking leads to Open bite, a high arched palate because of the pressure created in the mouth . This habit can also cause the maxillary central incisors to tip labially and the mandibilar incisors to tip lingually as the thumb rests on them during the course of sucking. Aside from the damaging physical aspects of thumb sucking, there are also additional risks, which unfortunately, are present at all ages. These include increased risk of infection from communicable diseases, due to the simple fact that non-sterile thumbs are covered with infectious agents, as well as many social implications. Some children experience social difficulties, as often children are taunted by their peers for engaging in what they can consider to be an “immature” habit. This taunting often results the child being rejected by the group or being subjected to ridicule by their peers, which can cause understandable psychological stress.

To prevent their children from sucking their thumbs some parents use bitterants or piquant substances on their child's hands.Parents could get a series of sharp prongs known as "hay-rakes" cemented to a child's teeth to discourage sucking

Praise children for not sucking, instead of scolding them when they do.
If a child is sucking its thumb when feeling insecure or needing comfort, focus instead on correcting the cause of the anxiety and provide comfort to your child.
If a child is sucking on its thumb because of boredom, try getting the child's attention with a fun activity.
Involve older children in the selection of a means to cease thumb sucking.
The pediatric dentist can offer encouragement to a child and explain what could happen to its teeth if it does not stop sucking.
Only if these tips are ineffective, remind the child of its habit by bandaging the thumb or putting a sock/glove on the hand at night.

It's called growing pain, many children keep complaining at night time. Apply some analgesic balm. If pain is more you can give paracetamol 250 mg at bedtime.

Sometimes simple cough takes several days to get cleared in children because of the narrow airways. Give ascoril ls syrup 5ml three times a day till he gets better. If there is fast breathing get chest x ray done.

You need to train baby to accept solid food. Dietary discpline is important & never succumb to undue demands , never offer him replacements of a home made wholesome diet. Have patience he will take normal diet as hunger is bigger than tantrums.

Dear Doctor, My daughter does not like to eat anything. I have tried baby foods, I have tried home made foods like rice with dal and vegetables etc. But she hates em all. What should I do? We are little worried, though she is enough spontaneous to play and make fun. Should we try Gripe Water or Gripe Mixture? Sometimes her mother forces her to eat and she cries by the time of eating.

Parents must understand that, every child has mind of it's own. Forcing to eat against their wish is not going to work. It will create some rebellious behavior. Instead eat family meals together and share happy moments. During meals offer her all you want, but let her decide what to eat. And after some days you will see the results. Check your expectations, if they are hyper..
