Parents, out of love, give to child what they think is best for their kid's health but never care to know what kid wants. Your kid is 16 months. He has his own choice. Give him home made every thing he wants. Avoid sugar rich drinks, chocolates or like. To rule out any illness, consult pediatrician.

Hibiscus leaves or flowers well, this is the best ayurvedic home remedy for hair loss. Hibiscus flowers and leaves can be very helpful in preventing hair loss and to promote hair growth. Hibiscus flowers are used as an effective cure for split ends and dandruff as well. Heat 12-15 hibiscus flowers in 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Strain the solution and collect the oil. Apply this concoction to the scalp and hairs, leave overnight and wash in the morning. To use the hibiscus leaves, grind them into fine paste and apply the paste to the scalp and hairs. Leave it on for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Rinse off with plenty of water. This controls the hair loss automatically and promotes hair growth. Hibiscus leaves for strong and long hair.

I am 40 years old. I have a 14 year old son. I am sure he masturbates daily. Does masturbation will reduce his height growth as he is just 4 foot now. Please help is masturbation good or bad for him at this height growing age?

Just leave it. Nothing happens even though he masturbates. This is age related phenomena especially in the teenage group. This is a temporary phenomena as he grows up and the habit subsides. See to it he won't go for bad habits. Masturbation is not related to other health conditions. Its habit of psychological status. His height and other health condition is not related to masturbation. Only thing is try to divert his attention by engaging him some other activity like more studies, sports, some work etc. Most of the time don't leave him alone.

Hi, welcome to lybrate fever for more than 5days -a week is not a simple one. It may be serious one. Your child needs to be examined thoroughly and some blood tests need to be done if needed after examination. Please consult a pediatrician immediately.
