For a 9 month old child you need to give full family diet in semisolid consistency, less spicy and oily. Can give chapati, vegetables, rice n dal, khichdi, sheera, upma, idli, dosas, soups, milkshakes, mixed vegetable pulao. All fruits, mashed potato, paneer, cheeze. Dates and dryfruits with milk. Try any of these food items gradually and with patience. Do not hurry. Meal time should be very happy time. Enjoy seeing your child having a happy meal.

Her immunity needs to be boosted up so that she copes up the daily routine physical and mental stress in the years to come. Meanwhile - Home remedy for Dry Cough: 5 basil leaves, 4 black pepper, 4 munakka, 5 gms liquorice (mulethi), 3 gms banafsha - boil these in 200 ml of water till it becomes 100 ml. Filter it. Add 2-3 patasha in it and drink lukewarm for 3-4 nights...sleep well covered. Dry cough will be relieved. Also continue to chew Mulethi. you can also have Steam with vicks although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. For that u may consult me privately over Lyberate. Please update with ur valuable feedback..

Hi doc, my son is 1 year 4 months old. My question is regarding avg sleep hours for this age babies. He hardly sleeps 9 hours in night and in between also wakes up in crying mood. Can you please give me some info on this so that I can come over my worry?

Pediatrician, Pune
Dont worry sleep peacefully and let your child also sleep comfortably, avg sleep varies from person to person and even in same person in different times of the year, trying to make any changes in the natural sleep hours causes further problems, but see that the child sleeps in quite dark room with minimal disturbance, mostly at the same time of night ~ 9- 10 pm, please do not keep tv in the bedroom, an undisturbed good sleep is the best tonic for the bay for good growth and keeping him / her happy

Common Problems in Children - Homeopathic Ways To To Deal With Them?

Common Problems in Children - Homeopathic Ways To To Deal With Them?

Children are constantly complaining of running noses and flus. This is part of their process of strengthening immunity and hence every child must go through this phase. Prescribing antibiotics every time a child sneezes worsens the situation by weakening their immunity. Hence, when it comes to children, homeopathy is an excellent form of treatment. Homeopathy can be prescribed to children of all ages.

Homeopathy addresses the physical, mental and emotional characteristics of a child and addresses the root of the problem. Though it has negligible side effects, apart from a few homeopathic medicines, it is always a good idea to consult a homeopathic practitioner before administering medicine to a child. Some homeopathic medicines that are commonly prescribed for children’s problems are:

  1. Aconite- This is used to treat the sudden onset of any illness or any illness in its early stages. Aconite is most often prescribed to treat flu and common colds. It can also be used to calm a child in case of sudden shock or fright.

  2. Arnica- Children are constantly falling and bruising themselves and arnica is the best first aid. Arnica can be ingested in pill form or applied topically in cream or gel form. It is useful for bruises, sore muscles, burns and black eyes but should never be applied topically over broken skin.

  3. Calcarea Carbonate- This is used to treat ear infections and colds that are a result of exposure to cold weather. It can also be used to treat babies who perspire excessively from their head and complain of heat and pulsating sensations in their ears.

  4. Chamomilla- This homeopathic remedy is ideal for restlessness, caused by teething, ear troubles, colic etc. It can also be used to treat bedwetting and diarrhoea. A cup of chamomile tea before going to bed can also help a child sleep well.

  5. Pulsatilla- This homeopathic remedy can be used to calm nervous and whiny children who alternate between extreme happiness and sadness. It is also efficient when it comes to treating ear aches that become worse at night and colds accompanied by yellow or yellow-green mucous discharge.

  6. Sulphur- Sulphur is used to treat earaches accompanied by perspiration and redness of the ears. It can also be used to treat skin problems such as scaly skin and acne eruptions. Irritable children who complain excessively after having a warm bath or getting out of a warm bed can also be calmed with sulphur. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

It is not vomiting but is called possetting and is due to the esophagus sphincter not becoming strong at this age . It amy be there till one year and you have to burp well after each feed and pout on on left side

Suckiing thumb abd weight loss are not related and this habit will go away as she grows up. You try putting a thimble over the finger and see if it distracts her.

I have a daughter who is 8.5 years old. Actually her problem is that she does not want to eat and she is underweight. Whatever she eats she eats with water. What should I do sir?

M.D PEADIATRICS, MBBS
Pediatrician, Pune
Hello lybrate-user, you have not mentioned your daughter's weight, which should b between 26-28kg. What I will advice is do not force her to eat, let her demand food, & serve only heathy food items avoiding junk food like bakery products, all kinds of wafers, chocolets etc. Pl make sure that she has salad & fresh fruits daily. Treat constipation if that is the case, deworm her every 6 months. If she is falling sick often she needs to b seen &investigated by Dr. I hope this solves your problem. All the best!
