Baby after proper feeding also cry at times What could be the major reason for a child of 0 month

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Babies may cry for no reason at some or other times for no fault of mothers. This is an universal truth. Accept this and stop worrying, you will enjoy parenting. See that baby puts on 500-700 gms weight per month.

Feeding uptil 1years is more than sufficient. After that baby gets nothing from feed but mother looses her calcium. Try to feed your child with proper food at night. Try to make her sleep with someone elze except you. In few days she will leave the night habit also.

You must go for a peripheral blood smear examination & if it confirms nutritional deficiency you can take plenty of green leafy & vegetables like palak & food items like jaggery, dates etc.

Usually children of this age do not suffer from indigestion problem. Try to give her small but frequent home made nutritious diet of her choice and encourage her for some kind of exercises. I hope it may work.

You can try but chances of increasing production of breast milk at this stage is a little difficult. But you must continue giving as much breast milk as possible and then supplement with formula.

Whooping Cough in Kids - How It Can Be Treated?

PGD Maternal Child Health, MBBS
General Physician, Akola
Whooping Cough in Kids - How It Can Be Treated?

Whooping Cough (another name for Pertussis) can be termed as an infection to the respiratory system caused by the bacterium Bordetella Pertussis (B. pertussis). It generally affects infants (below one year of age) and who have not yet been immunized; also kids between 11 to 18 years of age whose immunity graphs are on a downward spiral.

What are the Signs and Symptoms?
Initially, whooping cough produces signs and symptoms that may just seem to overlap with those exhibited during the average cough and cold; mild coughing, sneezing, runny nose, low fever, etc. These persist for about a week or two and then slowly, there is the onset of the dry, irritating cough which again turns to prolonged coughing spells. The child’s face may seem flushed with a purple hue. The child may also vomit or make the distinctive whooping sound at the end of one such spell. Breathing difficulty can be another issue.

What is the Diagnosis?
The doctor performs an initial check-up followed by tests of mucus sample from the nose or throat. The mucus is checked for the presence of the Bordetella pertussis bacteria. To make a more thorough diagnosis, a blood test is also advisable.

What is the Treatment?
Hospitalisation might be required in case of acute distress. Respiratory support may also be provided if required. If there is intense dehydration, intravenous (IV) fluids may also be administered. As this disease is on account of a bacterial infection, antibiotics will be needed. But these will just treat the immediate effects and the cough cannot be completely done away with.
 

What can be the Possible Complications?

The possible immediate complications include:

  1. Brain Damage
  2. Pneumonia
  3. Convulsion
  4. Haemorrhaging in the brain

What can be the Prevention?
Vaccination is needed in order to prevent whooping cough. The vaccines are advised to be administered at the age of two months, four months and six months respectively. The 1st booster dose is to be given at 16 to 18 months age and 2nd booster dose is given on 5 year completion of age. An optional booster may be given at 10 year age. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

My kid is 6 years old. She is very stubborn. When I say not to do something she will deliberately do the same thing. How to handle this situation?

Some children have a rebel nature especially if pampered or neglected. Some develop such attitude with the arrival of a sibling. Better you take the opinion of a child psychologist.

My daughter has birth mark on face. That birth mark can be remove by any medical treatment ? She is now 1 years old. Suggest me.

DMB
Pediatrician, Chennai
Dear you have not specified the size or location on the face of the birthmark. If it is reddish, it is usually a vascular malformation called salmon patches (naevus simplex), port wine stains and strawberry naevus. Salmon patches are present at birth, are falt and 50% disappear by the time the child is a year old. Portwine stains are more extensive and get purple and can worsen. They are treated by laser and cosmetic camouflage. Strawberry nevus are soft and raised and appear at 5 to 6 weeks of life. They resolve by three years. Beta blockers like propranalol have shown to be successful in strawberry naevi.

Pediatrician, Pune
Maintain hb more that 9 gm% by regular transfusions, avoid iron overload by giving iron chelators deferrasirox / others as prescribed by your doctor to keep ferritin < 1000, get his blood checked every six months for transfusion related infections and iron overload, maintain a near normal life, try an option for bone marrow transplant.

You should not use antibiotics frequently especially without doctor's prescription. It may be seasonal viral infection or allergy. Show to a good pediatrician.
