Hello Doctor, My daughter is 2 years old. I have two questions. 1. We are struggling to feed her everyday. She don't like to eat any sort of food beyond 2 spoons. Even if we involve her in some play and feed, she will vomit in some time. Not sure of reason. Can someone please help. 2. We forgot to take her for 2 years vaccine. Is there any problem if we take her for 2 years vaccine even with one month delay.

Usually children tell abdominal pain as attention seeking device and if tests are normal you have to think of it. If pain is sever you can give drugs like cyclopam and see. Speak to her caringly and inform me.

Night cough after1am may be a sign of asthma. Cough soon after going to bed may be a sign of post nasal drip. As you have not mentioned the time of onset of cough difficult to tell exactly.

My son is 9 years old. But he is still in the habit of bed wetting daily. What should I do?

Bed wetting in small children not only required medicines but a proper management is also required from your side.In order to control bed wetting problem of your child you must have proper knowledge of the exact reason of this problem. Actually normally a normal human being can retain urine in his bladder even for hours even if bladder is full because our mind controls the opening of Bladder valve.But sometimes this control breaks due to some reasons in elderly like old age,Uterine prolapse or displacement in females,Diabetes to name a few.But in small school going children it is a common problem and in majority of cases in children while sleeping the contact between their mind and bladder is broken and this is the reason why children cant feel their bedwetting problem even after urinating and continue with their sleep.There are a number of factors which leads to this problem but the main being Worms ,Excessive cold,Weak nervous system due to which whenever bladder fill slightly with urine,it exerts pressure on the valvular opening and while sleeping their mind-bladder control is not working,slight pressure on valve make it open and urine passes out without knowledge of the child.In some children this can happen while they are awake also. So our main aim while treating is to 1.set up a control betweem Mind and bladder 2.Try to remove all the causative factors 3.Try to make pass the urine of the child before hand time to time during the day so that there is no urine left in bladder so that no pressure is exerted on U.bladder valve. 4.Start giving medicines which will set up a contact between Mind and Bladder valve. 5.To start Pelvic Floor Muscles Stregthening exercises called KEGELS EXERCISE in teenage children and Mature people as small children cant do these exercises. Homoeopathic treatment R-74 Drops ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops in 1 spoon fresh water 3 times daily ENUROSAN or BOOUME 42 ( BIOFORCE) Drink 1 spoon twice daily Before starting the above 2 medicines first give below given medicine for 5 days and start the above medicines from 6th day D-WORM ( ADVEN) Drink 1 spoon twice daily for 5 days.Finish the bottle. Repeat the above medicines for 3 months. Management by Parents during this course 1.Stop all fluids at night 2 hours before sleep like water,milk,and fluids of all kind including liquid vegetables. 2.For first 45 days set up an alarm in the middle of night 30 minutes before when you think that the probability of your child urinating during sleep at that particular time is high.Make this time adjustments in next few days and void urine of your child at that time to relieve Bladder valve from pressure.It is difficult but you have to do it for your child. 3.See that your child doesnot put on weight by letting him eat fatty food and cold drinks.

Hi lybrate user, you should not worry much about your son wbc count. It raises in infectious fevers. Tip - do not google regarding health issues, that knowledge gives more stress than solutions, rely your doctor's advice.

What is the good food for 2 years old baby.
2 year old baby can have all food which a normal adult eats, like home made roti/ chapatti, sabzi, daal rice, khichadi. You can make it more healthy by adding ghee, use sweeteners like honey/ jaggery/ dates rather than sugar in majority cases. They can have lapsi, sheera, upama, appam, poha, pancakes, dosas made up of mixed daals soaked overnight with added vegetables, eggs, malpohas, uttappas. If they dont like vegetables add it in daal/ khichadi/ dosas/ pancakes/ soups. Give milk once in a day at least, if not plain add bournvita/ horlicks according to their taste. Curd/ paneer is good for them if they dont have any allergy to milk products.

This habit will automatically be resolved. One thing to watch for is to observe exactly in what circumstances or situation he keeps it out. If nothing like that, no worries.
