Hello, Homoeopathy is the best and safest option for all the age group including newborn babies! So, give her Schwabe’s Alpha-CF, Alpha-NC and Biocombination-11, all of them after every 2 hourly for 4 days (mix 2 tablets in a sterilised bowl with your milk and then give to your baby). Use Bakson's Nasal-Aid spray/ 1-2 sprays after every 4 hours. Management: - Avoid cold drinks and fried food, take healthy food. -Avoid exposure to Air-conditioner or cold air (wrap a warm stole or muffler around neck). -Avoid excessive or rough use of your voice/ shouting. -Gargle with warm water and salt 3 times a day and take steam-inhalation once before going to bed. -Take enough sleep and rest.

Sir my daughter is 6 years old, she was suffering the day night bed wetting, pl give solution for that

MBBS, FELLOWSHIP IN PAEDIATRICS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
As adults, when the bladder gets full, it sends a signal to the brain to wake up or you start dreaming about water or going to bathroom, and then you wake up, but for kids the signal isn't quite strong enough to get them awake which is why it is normal for children to wet the bed till age 6 or below. Therefore bed-wetting is a developmental issue and therefore the treatment is time, so for kids age 6 or under, they will most likely grow out of it. It becomes an issue when the child starts feeling bad about himself, when he starts to pull away from his friend because he is afraid that his friends will make fun of him. It makes matters worse when parents yell and scream at their children for bed wetting. Kids need reassurance and encouragement from parents. Children who continue to wet the bed beyond the age of 6 may not be producing enough ADH hormone at appropriate times or may not yet be attuned to their bodies' signals, or both. Behavioral changes too play a role in achieving dryness, he says. Try decreasing the amount that kids drink before bed. Parents should seek formal treatment between ages 6 and 7. There are bed wetting alarms available which are very effective on their own. But they take around 12 weeks to show the difference. If the problem is severe a pediatrician should be consulted for medication advice such as desmopressin which acts on kidneys to reduce the flow of urine. Another medication is imipramine which allows you to have better control of the bladder, affects the bladder musculature and may change sleep patterns, so kids wake up if they have to urinate. While this is cheaper than desmopressin it has more side effects on long term used. The bottom line is you should resort to medicines as last option first try reward therapy and beahvioral changes. More than 80% children at this age will grow out of it.

Our 20 days old daughter vomits out the feed in one go after 3-4 hours of feed. She feels suffocation at that time. Sometime liquid comes out from her nose. We hold her straight for half an hour after feed so that the intake gets digested. How to stop vomits?

This is not vomiting but possetting. In all babies this is there due to lack of strengthening of a muscle where food pipe joins stomach. By 6 months to 1 year this problem will be over. After feed, you burp the child by putting her on your shoulder or on the thigh with stomach pressing on your thigh. You keep monitoring weight every month and you will be happy that all feed have not gone wasted! for regular advice on child rearing you ask privately and be in touch with me as your personal doctor. Regards.

She should be admitted in good hospital as such a high fever in small baby where cause of fever is not known can create problems. So get her hospitalised for further investigation and treatment. Don't worry child will recover.

My baby having loose motion from night onwards 8 times and my baby age is 15 days.
Hello, Lybrate user, it's normal to have loose motions with each feeding since, digestive system of your baby is not fully developed to digest the feeding properly. You are required to keep an eye on general condition of your baby to be maintained in order. Give her homoeopathic medicine:@ Aloe sac 30-1 drop with 1tsfl of milk, thrice. You need to be fit in order to keep your baby healthy. Avoid, junk food, gaseous intake, being transferred to your baby making her sick. Report after 3 days. Your feedback matters for further follow-up, please. Tk, care.

At the age of 2 years pre schoolers speak more than few words. I child's understanding is OK and only verbal communication. I.e expression is lagging, a speech therapist / speech pathologist will be able to guide you how to interact with the child to elicit responses and develop communication using suitable modalities. It has been observed that children who enrol in early intervention show better prognosis compared to children who seek delayed diagnosis and treatment. If there is not much lag compared to peer group, home speech stimulation will help. Otherwise speech therapist will be able to develop expressive language skills. Good luck.

Temper Tantrums

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health
Pediatrician, Hyderabad

 

Close-up image a boy with a pouty face.

What are temper tantrums?

Temper tantrums are a way a young child lets out strong emotions before he or she is able to express them in socially acceptable ways. Although a child may seem totally out of control, these fits of rage, stomping, screaming, and throwing himself or herself to the floor are a normal part of childhood development. Temper tantrums often happen only with a parent. They are a way a child communicates his or her feelings. Parents can learn from their child by understanding the situation that caused the temper tantrum to erupt.

Temper tantrums often begin at about 1 year of age and continue until age 2 to 3. They begin to diminish as a child becomes more able to communicate his or her wants and needs.

What causes temper tantrums?

As a young child learns more and becomes more independent, he or she wants to do more than he or she can physically and emotionally manage. This is frustrating to the child and the frustrations are expressed in a variety of ways. Temper tantrums are worse and happen more often when a child is hungry, tired, or sick. Some reasons children have temper tantrums include the following:

  • Want to be on their own, and get upset when they can't do what they want

  • Are in a transition (such as from day care to home)

  • Are trying to get attention to test the rules

  • Have something taken away from them

  • Have not learned all the words to tell you what they are feeling or want and this upsets them

  • Do not understand what you want them to do

  • Are tired or hungry

  • Are worried or upset

  • Feel stress in the home

How to prevent temper tantrums

Although temper tantrums sometimes happen without warning, parents can often tell when a child is becoming upset. Knowing the situations when your child is more likely to have a tantrum and thinking ahead may help. An example is not letting your child become overtired or hungry. Some suggestions for preventing or minimizing temper tantrums include the following:

  • Stick to routines for meals and sleep times. Avoid long outings, delayed meals, and naps.

  • Distract your child with a toy he or she is allowed to have.

  • Be reasonable about what to expect from your child, and do not expect your child to be perfect.

  • Help your child to avoid frustration. Prepare your child for changes or events by talking about them before they happen.

  • Let your child know your rules and stick to them.

How to respond during a temper tantrum

The following are helpful hints regarding the most appropriate ways to respond during your child's temper tantrum:

  • Stay calm.

  • Ignore the child until he or she is calmer. Keep doing whatever you were doing before the tantrum happens.

  • Do not hit or spank your child.

  • Do not give in to the tantrum. When parents give in, children learn to use inappropriate behavior to get their way.

  • Do not bribe your child to stop the tantrum. The child then learns to act inappropriately to get a reward.

  • Remove potentially dangerous objects from your child or your child's path.

  • Use time-out for a short period to allow the child to get back in control.

What else should parents know about temper tantrums?

Temper tantrums generally happen less often as children get older. Children should play and act normally between tantrums. However, talk with your child's healthcare provider if any of the following happen:

  • Temper tantrums are severe, last long, or happen very often.

  • Your child has a lot of trouble talking and cannot let you know what he or she needs.

  • Temper tantrums continue or get worse after 3 to 4 years of age.

  • Your child has signs of illness along with temper tantrums or holds his or her breath to cause fainting.

  • Your child harms himself or herself or others during tantrums.

My daughter is 4 yrs old. When I am about to feed her anything she starts crying. It may b breakfast or lunch or dinner. Why does this happen with her? her weight is 15 kgs.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Her weight is in normal range. Probably like all anxious parents, you are trying to control her which she doesn't like. under this condition what else she can do? Tell me. Your anxiety makes you forget that she has a mind of her own, which would not like to be dictated by others.Live her alone, love her unconditionally. Let her exercise her choice about what,when and how to eat. Then she will be more receptive to your advice. Practice what you preach, eat everything in front of /with her, whatever you want her to eat. Hope this helps.
