It is not clear whether temp remained 99 to 100 or it has come to normal and for how long it remained normal. Watch now how long hours/ days temp remains normal. There are many resons for fever which is beyond the scope over here to mention.

They might have used all these iv fluids depending on the dehydration status and calculated on the basis of weight and age of the child.You need not worry they will take care and it is their responsibility.They might have told to keep for two more days for total cure/observation so that gastroenteritis won't recurr.

How to Deal With Trauma in Your Child's Life?

How to Deal With Trauma in Your Child's Life?

From terrorism to natural disasters, there are a number of traumatic events that constantly hurl themselves at us. Given the amount of stress it causes an adult, imagine how a child can process this information. Often traumatic events that occur in childhood can trigger phobias and anxiety disorders that last a lifetime if not dealt correctly.

Each child responds to trauma in a different way depending on the circumstances and their age and personality. What is common is that all children turn towards their parents and teachers for support in these situations. Hence, it is important to understand how to help your child deal with traumatic events.

Here are a few steps you should follow:

  1. Provide comfort: The first thing to do in a traumatic event is to reassure and comfort the child. Reinforce your child's sense of security by following a normal schedule and maintaining regular eating and sleeping habits. Encourage your child to talk and ask questions and discuss the situation with them in a way appropriate to your child's age and concerns.
  2. Accept their needs: Children show the need for reassurance in different ways. For some, it may be the need for extra physical contact in the form of hugs while for others it may be ensuring that their favourite teddy bear is with them constantly. Be patient with children and indulge their needs in such situations.
  3. Limit the amount of information available: Media often magnifies a traumatic event making it all the more difficult for a child to apprehend. Children can often be mislead or frustrated by media coverage of a traumatic event. Thus, it is a good idea to limit the use of television, radios and internet. As far as possible do not let your child watch the news alone.
  4. Stay in touch: If your child goes to school, his or her teacher is the parent figure at school. Stay connected with your child's teachers and the other adults in their life to monitor changes in behavioral patterns.
  5. Create distractions: If left alone with nothing to do, a child's mind will dwell on the trauma. Encourage them to find a hobby to cope with the negative emotions. Music and art are two good outlets for stress. You could also play board games, read or play outdoors to distract them.
  6. Get professional help: Sometimes you may need help to deal with a traumatic event in your child's life. If your child shows signs of behavioral changes, academic problems, emotional outbursts, anxiety, depression, insomnia or social withdrawal; you should consult a professional counselor.

Thank you for your query. It is very common for infants of this age to throw up the excess milk, if any. This appears curdled as it has been acted upon by the gastric juices. In case the weight of your son is not increasing then we shall like to intervene for this regurgitation.

I strongly advocate breastfeeding babies till at least 2 years of age, even later if required. It is never late to relocate and re-establish breastfeeding even if your baby has had a gap for a while. I am a lactation consultant, and I can help you with re-establishing breastfeeding. Let me know if you need my help.

Look carefully whethet there is swelling over there or while he is asleep press his hand gently if there is no disturbance in sleep or the child does not start crying it could be attention seeking behaviour. REASSURE THE CHILD WITH LOTS OF LOVE AND HUGS.

7.2 kgs is alright for a 1.5 year old child. There is nothing to worry about her weight. Still you can give her a healthy and nutritious diet to ensure that she is having healthy mental and physical development. For this, give her egg yolks, curd, fruit shakes, besan cheela, chicken soup, fish, vegetables, prantha.
