Hi My daughter who is 28 days old do potty every time after feed about 20 - 22 times a day. Would you please suggest ...
Nope. This is normal in newborns. Some potty 20-22 times a day and some can do it once in 2-3 days. As pediatricians, we don't worry about baby's stool habit at this age but the urine output. If the baby is growing fine, active, taking feeds properly and urinating well which means that if you are using cotton nappies they need to be changed 8-10 times a day and if you are using diapers they need to be changed 6-8 times a day, if this is the case it means your baby is being adequately fed and there is nothing to worry. Please note that this is the scenario with the baby being breast fed. If your baby is on formula then please ensure your are using sterilized utensils to feed your baby.

ADHD - What Can Cause It?

ADHD - What Can Cause It?

ADHD refers to attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, which is a brain-related condition found among preschoolers, children, teenagers and in many cases extends well into adulthood. These individuals have significant impairment in academics as well as social situations and interpersonal relations. The child has difficulty sustaining attention, phases of hyper activeness and cannot control his/her impulses which make their day to day life at school and home difficult.

ADHD Symptoms

The symptoms of this disorder among children can be categorized under three headings.

  1. Hyperactivity which includes
    1. Fidgeting
    2. Restlessness
    3. Inability to stay at one place runs around and tries to climb things
    4. Trouble playing quietly
    5. Excessive talking
  2. Inattention, which can be divided into symptoms like
    1. Getting easily distracted
    2. Tendency to loose things
    3. Daydreaming
    4. Facing problems related to organizing things
    5. Not listening carefully
    6. Forgetting about daily activities, carelessness
  3. Impulsiveness
    1. Interrupts others as they speak and talks out of turn
    2. Answers questions without listening to what has been asked
    3. Not being able to wait for their turn to come

Prevalence :
10-12% of school children before puberty are affected by one or more types of ADHD. ADHD especially hyperactivity is more prevalent in boys than in girls, with the ratio up to 9:1. Inattention and poor concentration are more commonly seen amongst girls. The rate of ADHD in parents and sibling of children with ADHD is 5-10 times higher than in the general population.

ADHD Causes
The probable causes of ADHD among children are,

  1. Neurodevelopmental changes - Poorly developed activity of the brain particularly in the areas that control attention and concentration cause ADHD. This causes an imbalance in the neurotransmitters or the chemicals important for brain functioning and development.
  2. Genetic Factors - genetic studies show that ADHD is largely hereditary in nature with a heritability of 75% approximately.

Hi lybtrate user, it's too early to speak meaningful words for this age, even if baby is speaking some words like baba, mama. It is normal.

My nephew is 4 years old in nursery class. But the problem is he doesn't speak. Guide us what to do.

Developmental delay need to be evaluated by a doctor. Usually if all other mile-stones are proper, speech may develop late in his case too. Check for his hearing ability is proper. Children with hearing impairment may not able to speak. Tongue -tie may cause difficulty in speaking.
