At this age babies may pass stools once in 8 days, this may be normal if abdomen is soft and baby is not vomiting. Burp your baby after each feed.

Delayed Speech - Causes And Symptoms!

Delayed Speech - Causes And Symptoms!

It might happen that you may not find your child, at twelve months to two years of age, at the same level as their peers in verbal communication. You think it's just a developmental problem they are facing and put off seeking professional advice; an intrinsically wrong step to take, because your child might be suffering from Speech Delay.

Delayed speech, or alalia, can be roughly defined as a delay in the development and use of the biological mechanisms that produce speech. Delayed speech is sometimes caused from hearing defect also. A deaf child is always dumb. Before we jump into conclusion of delayed speech, hearing assessment is mandatory.

The symptoms of speech delay are roughly categorized into age related groups, generally beginning at the age of 12 months and continuing through the early adolescence, and they are:

1. Age-12 months
a. It is indeed a symptom if your child cannot point at objects or cannot manage gestures, such as waving good-bye.
b. Another symptom is that if your child does not prefer to communicate verbally as much as his/her peers.

2. Age-15-18 months
a. If your child is unable to pronounce familiar syllables or simply cannot call you even by this time, it's a worrying symptom.
b. You find your child unable to, or simply not reciprocating to 'no', 'hello', 'hi', 'bye'.
c. If your child is unable to extend his/her vocabulary up to 15 words by fifteen months, then it's a symptom.

3. Age-2-4 years
a. You find your child unable to spontaneously produce speech and words.
b. Another worrying symptom is if your child is lacking consonant sounds at the beginning and end of words while speaking.
c. If you still find your child unable to form simple sentences and words, then it is indeed a troubling symptom, confirming the disorder.

The causes for the speech delay disorder are:
1. A primary cause can be physical disruption in parts of the mouth such lips or palate, which may be deformed.
2. Another serious cause can be an oral-motor dysfunction which is the disruption in the creation of the specific area of the brain which deals with speech and communication.
3. The disorder can also be attributed to impairment in the development of the child's intellectual, receptive and expressive abilities.
4. There can also be psychological causes involving school environment and peer relationships which might lead to disruption of speech patterns and reluctance in speech expression and development. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pediatrician.

Hello Everyone!

I am Dr. Prachi Goel, MD Homeopathy and a nutritionist, homeopathy consultant at Dr. Goel Care Solution. I am practicing from last 10 years. And today will discuss some common childhood ailments. Children ailments which will encounter commonly at our clinic. So, what are common children ailments? The most commonly, jo bhi parents lekar aate hain apne bacho ko, most common among them is khasi-jukam. Common cough and cold jo ke hum bolte hain. So, what are causes of common cough and cold. First is acute cough and cold, jiska cause hota hai change of whether. Khane peene ki galtiyan. And second is chronic cough and cold. Chronic hum kab bolte hain usko jab koi bhi problem bar bar ho rhi ho. Pichle 6 mahine me, saal me vhi problem thode thode gap me bacha bar bar face kar rha ho. Ya fir vhi problem chalti aa rha ho. Khasi chal rhi hai pichle 2 mahine se, aram nhi aa rha. Jukam chal rha hai pichle 3 mahine se, aram nhi aa rha. Tab hum unko lebel krte hain chronic cough and cold. Now what are the causes of chronic cough and cold. The most common cause are adenoids, tonsillitis, bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia etc.

So, what we hear these days adenoids and tonsils. What are these? Adenoids and tonsils are nothing but protective lymph and tissues present at our upper respiratory tract. Yes, they are protective. They help our immune system. And what are their role? Ye prevent krte hain infection ko lower respiratory tract me jane se. Adenoids and tonsils swell and trapped the infection in upper respiratory tract and they protect our lungs and chest from the severe infections like asthma, pneumonia and bronchitis. It is normal practice nowadays ki bache ko adenoids hai, tonsils hai so please get the surgery and removed. We at Goel Homeopathy, we condemned that this is the wrong practice. We prefer to treat it with compete constitutional homeopathy medicines, which takes care of the child personality. His inbound disorder, his inbound tendency which are causing these problems.

The main route cause which goes down is the low immunity and the allergic reaction. So, we here, advice not to go for surgery. And get your child treated for these problems. What is the other cause of cough and cold. They can be allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, bronchitis. So what to look after. First you have to be very careful. You have to be observant. Ki bache ko baar baar to nhi ho rha problem. Khasi ho rha hi jukam ho rha hai. You please give your child a proper rest during the symptom. Give him the plenty of fluids. Garm pani ke garare, steam. Adenoid me maximum bache ki nak band ho rhi hai, muh se saans leni pad rhi hai. Khane peene me dikkat aa rhi hai. Tonsil me mostly complaint aati hai, galle me dard ho rha hai, khasi, bukhar, sir dard. Rhinitis is the problem jhan pe bhut jldi jldi chiken aati hai kisi bhi vjha se, dust ki vjha se, dhoop ki vjha se, temperature difference ki vjha se. Bhut common hai ye proble March, April, May ke season me. Hay fever bhi bolte hain hum is chiz ko. Sinusitis me hmare sare sinus me dard ho rha hai. Mucus bhar gya hai jiski vjha se khasi, jukam ho rha hai. Bronchitis ki vjha se khasi ho rhi hai. So please be careful of these symptoms when you see and get them treated properly. Uske baad hum aaj kal ke disease pe aa rhen hai. Those are behavioural diseases. Behavioural disorder and eating disorder. So, what are these. ADHD anger disorder, depression, obesity, bhut jyada khana, bhut kam khana, dullness, poor performance and the most important is gadget dependency.

Jhan par bache ko har time phone, TV, laptops, computers chaiye for any certain reason which is more than unnecessary addiction to the gadgets. We treat these cases with proper counselling of the parents, of the child and the best of the medicines which help to boost their personality, confidence and to improve their results. Next, we come on to bed-wetting and worm infestation joki bhut common hai. We in homeopathy, have beautiful medicines and miraculous results in these cases. Bed-wetting is what. Involuntary urination of a child who is above 5 years. Agar bacha 5 saal se chota hai, please wait. Train him or her. He will eventually surpass this. But agar 5 saal se bade bache me bhi ye problem aa rhi hai, to uske causes ho skte hai psychological problem, obesity, constipation, diabetes. Then we take care of these problems and of course provide medicines. Bed-wetting ke lia hmara advice hota hai parents ko, don’t give fluid to the child 2-3 hours before the bed time.

Raat ko sulane se pehle usko bathroom kra ke sulao. Or agar usko raat ko bhi jana hai to, wake up your child and get him to the washroom. Worm infestation, tapeworm iska problem jo hai vo hume dikh bhi skti hai or nhi bhi. Bhut sare bache hote hain, unko hoti hai worm infestation, but we ignore them. Because of the mild symptoms. Bacha complaint kar skta hai ki uska nnose rub ho rha hai, pait me dard ho rha hai, ans me itching ho rhi hai, bhut

jyada kha rha hai, bhut kam kha rha hai, weakness, tiredness. Please don’t ignore these symptoms. And what is the cure of warm infestation. Bache ke nails regularly cut kren. Usko encourage kren ki vo hath bar bar dhoe khane se pehle. Nail biting na kre, maintain a good hygiene, good sanitary condition, wear fresh cloth daily. Change the beddings regularly. And of course, these things won’t help, we are here to help you at Goel Health Care Solutions. We have very nice medicines. We help you and your child to overcome these problems. We believe in a complete constitutional treatment with a complete treatment where we give best of homeopathic medicines. Taking care of your child personality, eating habits and surroundings. I would like to end it with just a suggestion, please be a good example for your children. Encourage your children to play some sport, physical activity is very important and to develop a good communication habit with a child to observe what are the changes your child is having. Are they good or not so good? And be friends with your children.

Thank you. Have a happy and healthy life.

Do not start with cow or buffalo milk until child crosses 1 year. Reason for crying might be colic pain so start with colic aid drops 4-5 drops 3-4 times a day, other alternative for breast feeding is formula feed which is available as lactogen or nan. I suggest you not to start formula feed if you are having enough breast milk. Continue breast milk atleast for 1 year.

What Causes Early Childhood Trauma? + How to Identify this Condition?

What Causes Early Childhood Trauma? + How to Identify this Condition?

The problem of early childhood trauma refers to disturbing experiences that take place in children during 0-6 years of age. The traumas that young children experience can be the effects of natural disaster, war or accidents or that of intentional violence like sexual abuse, domestic violence or physical abuse.

What Does this Condition Impact Childhood?

Traumatic events have a significant impact on your child's life and can break his sense of safety. The problem has been linked with a decrease in the size of the brain cortex. This is the part of the brain that controls several complex functions like thinking, consciousness, memory, attention, awareness, and language. The changes that occur as a result can affect your child's IQ as well as his or her ability to control emotions. As a consequence, he or she may harbor feelings of danger and become more afraid or it may manifest in other personality issues which are not very obvious.

How do you identify this condition?

Generally, children who suffer from traumas face problems in regulating their emotions and behaviors.

They may display signs like:

- Fear of new situations
- Being clingy to their parent(s) or somebody close
- Become easily frightened
- Display aggressive and/or impulsive behavior

- Are difficult to comfort
- Display deterioration in behavior and functioning
- Easily forget newly attained developmental skills
- Difficulty in sleeping

Depending on the age during which your child may go through a traumatic event, he or she can exhibit signs relevant to his or her age.

For instance:

Children aged 0-2 years may also display reactions like poor verbal skills, memory problems, excessive temper, experience nightmares, etc.

On the other hand, children aged 3-6 years can face difficulties in learning as well as develop poor skill and learning disabilities, face problems in social interaction, may be unable to trust people and so on.

If this condition remains unattended or unresolved for longer, it may create personality issues and can deeply impact the individual's relationships, or equations in the society, as they grow up and even after they become adults. In fact, many behavioral problems can be traced back to childhood trauma.

Every patient is concerned about their child health , Despite great strides in decay prevention, one in four young children develops signs of tooth decay before they start school. Half of all children between the ages of 12 and 15 have cavities. Dental care should begin as soon as a child’s first tooth appears, usually around six months,Teeth can be wiped with a clean, damp cloth or a very soft brush. At about age 2, you can let kids try brushing for themselves -- although it’s important to supervise.

White blood cells are manufactured in bone marrow —A low white blood cell count usually is caused by: Viral infections that temporarily disrupt the work of bone marrow Certain disorders present at birth (congenital) that involve diminished bone marrow function Cancer (or other diseases that damage bone marrow) Autoimmune disorders that destroy white blood cells or bone marrow cells Severe infections that use up white blood cells faster than they can be produced Medications, such as antibiotics, that destroy white blood cells Sarcoidosis thus a detailed investigation is must to rule out the cause
