What type of food should be given to my baby of 6 month how and how  much.
You must give freshly prepared, home available, semisolids like rice ganji, kichri etc. You must gradually introduce one after the other as the baby gets accustomed. Mashed vegetables and fruits also are introduced as the baby starts accepting.

Appendicitis in Children

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS

The appendix is a small, finger-shaped pouch attached to the large intestine in the right belly area. It is a vestigial organ as it has no specific role to play in humans, but the organ is still seen, though in a very small size compared to the earlier living beings in the evolutionary chain. Acutely inflamed appendix is the most common cause leading to it removal, often seen in the ages of 10 to 19.

Causes: the appendix gets infected by two main reasons - general infection in the abdomen that reaches the appendix or blockage of the appendix leading to inflammation and swelling within it. The appendix is a blind pouch, and there is a good chance for its blockage from food particles, lymphatic tissue, or even sometimes feces. Some of the potential risk factors for appendicitis include a diet low in fiber, high in sugar, gut flora, and family history.

Symptoms/diagnosis: in adults, the appendicitis has very characteristic symptoms including acute pain in the right upper part of the belly associated with fever and vomiting. However, in children, the pain may not be as tell-tale a sign but is still quite diagnostic of appendicitis. However, presence of the following symptoms together is surely indicative of appendicitis.
1. Right abdominal pain, especially rebound tenderness, where pressure placed in the right upper part of the belly and released leads to excruciating pain.
2. Fever, nausea, and vomiting
3. Abdominal fullness or bloating
4. Elevated white blood count (as with most infections)
Additionally, the younger the child, the symptoms are not very clear, but ultrasound will confirm the diagnosis. The inflamed, enlarged appendix will be visible on the images and could be surrounded by free fluid. Ct scan also can be considered if required to confirm the diagnosis.

Treatment: as noted above, children present with symptoms that do not pinpoint to appendicitis. Treatment usually takes two routes:

If diagnosed as appendicitis before rupture, then surgical removal is the best method to contain its symptoms. Other symptoms like fever and nausea and vomiting usually subside a couple of days after the surgery.
If the appendicitis goes unnoticed and ruptures, then the intestinal cavity can get infected, which is called peritonitis. Earlier, the preferred approach was to control the infection and then go for removal. However, lately, removing the appendix followed by antibiotics to control the infection is the preferred approach.
The prognosis and recovery from appendicitis is very good. Deaths have occurred only in very small infants, where they are not able to pinpoint the area and therefore it can go undiagnosed, leading to rupture and subsequent death.

Early identification is the key to proper identification, immediate treatment, and complete recovery from appendicitis.

Swami ramdev reports patients have benefited by anulomvilom pranayama. You will have to close and open your son' nostrils with your hand. I hope if you do it there will be definite improvement. Otherwise, medicines are the last resort with little success so why not try pranayama that might benefit just as other mental health problems.

I am having a 3 years old daughter, who was recently admitted to Hospital due to Nonobstructive refluxassociated chronic pyelonephritis. The doctors have given medicine and regular check up at intervals are being carried out also. But, even after so much of medication, we are unable to remove the constipation. Any suggestions on this issue as to how to resolve the problem.

I think it's vesico urteric reflux. As already pyelonephritis has developed, might need correction. Show to an urologist. Get dmsa scan to rule out scarring of kidney s. For constipation you must regularly use duphalac for many months.

Dear lybrate user, adhd, is behavioural disorder with school children, mainly boys r the sufferers. They r not tested rather evaluated as per their hyper activity to keep them calm. We, in homoeopathy hv remarkable result upon mental plane, like this behavioural disorder. Give him the under noted homoeo medicine, @ gelsemium 30-6 pills, thrice a day. @ ignatia 30-6 pills, thrice a day. It'll b rather easier to assess his condition, taking certain associated symptoms with regards to his behaviour. Such as. He bites, fight with the furniturs, tears the books, throw, the objects in his hands upon any one. Take, care.

Not at all! Breasts sag from obesity and lax muscle tone - not because of nursing a baby. To the contrary, the baby's sucking leads to the uterus contracting, which helps restore the belly to its normal position quite quickly. What you really need is a well fitting bra to give you support, with nursing flaps to allow your baby easy access to your breasts.

For repeated cold, do not use any antibiotic. To increase immunity, give vitamin a 60, 000 units daily for 3 to 4 days. Give him food of his taste, if he refuses one item, try another, not all at a time. Don't force feed.

Dear, children are supposed to be playful. Usually it takes some time for them to grasp things which is not told playfully. Therefore, our education system always use play related teaching pattern. If you want to know if there is any learning disability with your child, you need to get him tested for learning disability. Psychologists do learning disability test. Take care.

Engorged breast may cause pain in breast which becomes more while feeding baby. Light fomentation to breast and encourage to feed baby tolrating pain, may relieve pain. If it does not work, pls consult obstetrician.

Feeding uptil 1years is more than sufficient. After that baby gets nothing from feed but mother looses her calcium. Try to feed your child with proper food at night. Try to make her sleep with someone elze except you. In few days she will leave the night habit also.

Gripe water as the name implies is given to a baby if he cries a lot because of gas which causes stomach pain ( gripe ). If your child is okay you need not give him gripe water. Give it only if child is crying too much due to gas.

Hi All,  My daughter is born on 25 Aug 2014. Her current weight is 10 kg. As per the chart she is below standard. Since her birth she is growing miraculously, in a sense, she doesn't eat solid food as minimum as she needs to. She doesn't drink bottle milk while awake. She only drinks while she is sleeping. So since drink milk only while sleeping, her regular pedestrian prescribed Infragrow (infragrow is given for gaining weight) to add with milk and feed her. So we're doing. Our baby doesn't drink adequate water. We can't force her, she won't intake, so can't increase the water content.

Please understand that overweight or obesity in children is a growing dangerous problem. This weight is reasonable as she is active and you should stop bottle feed and feed from a cup and glass. Moreover you give all home made normal foods and check her CBC and TSH to see if she is healthy in medical terms.

My 10 year old daughter doesn't eat much. In-fact, most of the time, she skips the meals. May be due to this only, she is very weak i. E. Slim and short as a 10 year old should be. What to do to make her eat the meals?

Some children are more active than other. 1_5 years age is age of exploration. Thus they donot listen to others. He will calm down himself by 5 year's age.
