If the child is playful, wait for two days. Consult a pediatrician if the child is dull or not improving.

Don?t put your child to bed with a bottle, as the liquid can pool in the mouth while the child sleeps and cause decay.

This is for child 4 year old. Studies in Jr. Kg. I feel that my child has difficulty in clarity of speech and speaking in complete sentences. He requires language development. He communicates his needs and is quite good with written work in academics but story telling, language related narration is difficult. Also he communicates only in English. Though he understands our mother tongue Malayalam and Hindi, he communicates back only in English. Is there any way you can help him develop language skills. FYI he was premature 8th month baby, but had all his milestones correctly. His birth weight was 1.8 kg. He is very active and playful child.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. I don't see any problems in your child. If he is able to communicate, written work in academics etc, then the other aspects should be due to lack of proper training. I suggest you to consult a psychologist for assessment of learning disability areas including language ability. I too am from Kerala and I wish to speak to you as well as your child. You can contact me through Lybrate. Take care.

Hi, thanks for contacting me. Your son is possibly suffering from eczema/ dandruff of the scalp. Treatment would involve keeping the scalp'moist' use a good quality oil to massage the roots and then wash it off after 10 minutes with a baby'no-tears' shampoo. If the problem persists, talk to me on private chat or consult your pediatrician. Warm regards

Stop feeding milk frequently. It is only when child is hungry that he will start accepting food. It will take lot of patience on parents side. This is most common problem faced by all parents.

Hi Dr. I am 31 years old female. One month before I lost my son during delivery as it was preterm labor and true knot. There is fibroids in posterior side equal to egg size my Dr. said I got preterm labor due to this egg size fibroid. Now she has given me medicine named fibristal 5 mg. Before starting to take this medicine just wanted to know whether this medicine can cure my egg size fibroids. please advice.

The egg size fibroid will become much smaller as your uterus size normalises to pre-pregnancy level. Fibristal has temporary effect only, and fibroid size will start increasing if it is stopped. The main problem is that fibristal may prevent next pregnancy from coming. You have to stop it after 3-6 months, do ultrasound for fibroid size and location. If situated towards the outside of uterus it may not affect the pregnancy. If located towards the inside, and size 2 cm or more, it should be removed by laparoscopy or hysteroscopy before trying for pregnancy again. True knots have nothing to do with fibroids.

Hi. Your baby might have a fungal infection or it may be just dry skin. Sometimes, even worms in the stomach can cause such symptoms. This can only be decided on examination. So see a dermatologist and take opinion. Meanwhile, give her a deworming medicine.

what is minimum sugar level in new born baby? Is it possible that a new born baby has a low sugar level (in between 30 to45)?

A new born baby should maintain a sugar level above 50-60mg/dl. If the sugar is between 30-45 mg/dl it is termed as hypoglycemia and warrants immediate treatment.

your daughter is grossely undernourished (ideal weight at 4 yrs is 16 kg). She does not reqiure any appetite stimulants but sufficient diet given at frequent intervals in gradually increasing quantities.Appetite is a natural reflex in body stimulated by body requrements,but it is diminished in sickness & chronic malnutrition. She will improve if you feed her regular intervals in gradually increasing amounts.It may take around 6 months to catch up.Make sure she is not having any chronic illness.

Ensure that he has not sustained any injury in leg. If not so, get him examined by pediatrician. Loose motion 4 days prior to ailment may be just co-incidence.

I hope you are referring to masturbation, though masturbation is not harmful but anything in excess will have its harmful effects, hence avoid ejaculation at this age.

Your son must be getting steroids for cough which makes him healthy and after recovery, medicine is stopped so the appetite must have decreased and again become sick thus this cycle shall go on. Do not give any medicine containing steroids for cough. Steroid does more harm than good in long run. It is a very specific drug used for specific disease. Treatment of cough depends on cause.

Ipv is a superior vaccine and used all over the world. However government wants to give only opv from their side so they are promoting opv to build up immunity of the entire population. For the sake of your child ipv is enough.
