If he is completely breast fed this is normal. When you give other foods give more boiled water in between and stop bottle and feed from a cup and this will be normal. Moreover, newborns will no pass motion everyday normally.

Avoid using any cough syrup without doctor advice because dosage of any drug may be different for different weight and symptoms. You can best use steam inhalation for your child at home. Protect your child from cold.

My 2 year old son frequent cough n cold. But is active.What are the signs to Chek allergies or asthma ?

MRCP (UK), DNB, MD
Pulmonologist, Mumbai
Dear, Need to get some details. Is he also having fever, loss of appetite or weight? Any family history of allergy like runny nose, eczema etc? Asthma is a genetic disease. And clinical examination and history are the best diagnostic tools. It can also be treated easily and help your son lead a normal childhood.

no worry at all. this vaccine is reactogenic and causes swelling , lump and fever for few variable days --> just apply ice at that hardened part and it fades away in 4 weeks . if it is causing reduced leg movement or persistence of fever then only u shall be worried- well no long term effects !

As you describe it may be Febrile Convulsion, convulsion (which is also called as "Kheech" Mirky" or "Zatke ki bimari") after high grade fever. Febrile convulsion is common in children age 6 months to 6 yrs. If there is not loss of consciousness or other complication, no need do any further investigation. DILANTIN is anti-convulsion medication. It is not recommended to give long term anti-convulsion medication like DILANTIN (Phenytoin) for simple febrile convulsion. Advice to Consult Pediatric Neurophysician.

Usually children are like this, upto three months they will sleep during day and start troubling! mothers at night. This is the pain of motherhood. You can ask me privately for regular consultation child rearing. Happy parenting!

My daughter is advised to take attentrol10mg. She is 18 year old. She get lost and does not pay attention continuously. So doctor told us now that she is having ADHD problem. I just want to ask is it genetic or due to some other reason?

P.G.C.C. Pediatric, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
The exact cause of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd) isn't known. But it may run in families. Ongoing research is focused on finding the genes that cause a person to be likely to get adhd. A mother's use of cigarettes, alcohol, or other drugs during pregnancy may increase the risk for adhd.
