To advise, it had been better if her height and weight is known. Leave her at her liberty to eat whatever she wants. Don't thrust your chice on her.

No, avoid bottle and formula feeds. I personally believe mothers of such small child should feed for ten times a day. Child sucks for few minutes and then stops.

Teeth don't worry, as they can be delayed without any reason. Further diet of 11 month old child is almost 900 to 1000 calories a day divided in six home made feeds, 300ml milk products at interval of three hrs.

My son is 7 years old he is suffering from headache n dizziness, while dizzying he sees cars around his eyes, dizziness is not regular but some times, pls advice what to do?

Headache and dizziness can be because of some opthalmic refractory error- means he might need specs. So first check his number and if its ok, see a pediatric neurophysician.

In a 3 month old these are just normal and you take care to keep the area clean and distract her. She will just put anything in mouth and suck.

It's a viral infection. It takes 4 to 5 days for the fever to reduce and 10 to 14 days for the next cough to reduce.

Better avoid serving food in plasic cotainers which are lined by BFA which is potentially harmful to human. Glass,ceramic,metal utensils are best for helth.

I have 4 years old kid. He is very stubborn and he is not able to concentrate on his studies and not performing well. Even when I try make him to sit and write he is reluctant and try to avoid what ever ways I tried. Please suggest me what should I do to make my child study properly.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
A 4 year old cannot be expected to concentrate on studies as he is still a playful child and not ready for serious studies. In our system where children are overloaded there're problems. However we can do some tests to make sure he has no disease. Ask me privately so that I can reply you in continuity regards.

Rotavirus vaccine protects your child from diarrhoea due to rotavirus which is common in 6 months to 1 year age. It is preferably given before 6 months age in 2 or 3 doses.

Precautions for diabetic patients during Ramzan fast

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
“Patients with type 1 diabetes should avoid fasting. However, those type 2 diabetes can fast,”
All diabetic patients who fast should be aware of certain facts if they fast during Ramzan, he further added.
All patients with diabetes should consult with their family physician regarding the Ramzan fast and learn the warning symptoms.
Type 2 diabetes will be controlled by diet and may require no special precautions.
Patients at risk of diabetes should avoid overeating to prevent post meal high blood pressure, after the predawn and/or sunset meal.
The exercise program for patients with diabetes on diet control should be modified to avoid lower blood sugar level. Exercise should be done 2 hours after the sunset meal.
Food restriction and dehydration may cause some cardiac risk in the elderly.
The choice of drugs in diabetes may require consultation with a doctor. Drugs that act by increasing the production of insulin are to be preferred. Some patients on metformin may fast safely with minimal complications. However, two-thirds of the total daily dose should be given just before the sunset meal and rest one-third before the predawn meal. Patients on pioglitazone may require no change in dose. Patients on sulfonylureas may require medical clearance before commencing fast.
Insulin dose also needs to be modified during the fast. Usually two doses of insulin, one before each meal, are sufficient.
If the blood sugar falls below 60, then the fast should be immediately broken.
Fast should also be broken if blood sugar rises to more than 300.
Patients should avoid fasting on sick days.

My 6 years son who is suffering from adhd & asd. At nimhans/banglore no medicine was prescribed and only suggest some skill at home. Now his adhd problem is continued as he is not sit constantly in one place. Please suggest me. Nimhans is far away from my native.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Stimulants such as ritalin and adderall are often prescribed for attention deficit disorder, but they might not be the best option for your child? and they? re certainly not the only treatment. Medications for add/adhd may help your child concentrate better or sit still, at least in the short term. But to date, there is little evidence that they improve school achievement, relationships, or behavioral issues over the long term. And even in the short term, medication won? t solve all problems or completely eliminate the symptoms of add/adhd. Furthermore, there are concerns about the effects these powerful drugs may have on a child? s developing brain. And the side effects? such as irritability, loss of appetite, and insomnia? can also be problematic. Medication is a tool, not a cure. And it is most effective when combined with other treatments that address emotional and behavioral issues. Ask me personally (privately for guidance)

Why my 8 month old daughter doesn't sleep nicely for 3 to 4 hours together in the night ?

MBBS, DNB (Pediatrics)
Pediatrician, Kolkata
Small children have a tendency to remain awake at night. This was their routine in mother's womb. Some children continue top have the same. Nevertheless other causes need to be ruled out as well.
