My 6 years girl getting breast pain one side and they are bit big in size compared to other, please guide me whether I have see Gynecology or pediatrics. Appreciate your early reply.

Appearance of breast is called Thelarche . If no other signs of puberty are there like hair in groin or armpits, then it is not considered as precocious puberty, and there is no need to do anything. Advice to stop pressing, rubbing or massage.

My daughter's age is 3 and half years. She has constipation problem after every 2 or 3 days.What can i do?
constipation is easily manageable through a prescribed diet. I will prescribe a high fiber diet customized to your case. Do avoid over-the-counter laxatives. Increasing exercise is also important if you lead a sedentary lifestyle. For stubborn constipation in I may recommend a non-digestible sugar called lactulose or specially formulated electrolyte solutions. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Don't scold her or remind her for her act. Just develop habit to urinate before going to bed. Get her urine checked. If it is normal, no cause of much worry. Avoid to make her conscious. It may be helpful. Else consult pediatrician.

Breastfed babies do not normally pass motion every day and need not worry. If he is bottle fed you give additional fluids like boiled water . Avoid bottle feeding

My baby is 5 and half months old. He is having green hard stool since couple of days. But seems normal, his diet is normal n he is. playful. His diet include breastfeeding, lactogene formula 1 n some liquid form like apple juice banana mixed with lactogene and rice and tur dal water. Is this normal having green stool? Or what would be the reason for this?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
If you are feeding lactogen in bottle with nipple it can cause this. Stop bottle and feed from cup with spoon. Also give boiled water in between if you give formula feed. The best is to give breast milk and home made semisolids with boiled water in between.

Why You Should Talk To Your Little One Earnestly

If your toddler talks to you in gibberish what do you do? Experts tell us that you should act as if you understand what your child is speaking. It will encourage him to speak and he will pick up the mother?s tongue faster.
Parents? response to children?s activities makes a world of difference to their growth. If you indulge in a conversation with your toddler, he will feel encouraged to talk. Never mind if you can?t make out his blabbering. Words don?t matter, your attention does! Show interest and talk to your kid. Just wait and watch how quickly your baby picks up language skills!

Hi my son is 6 months old and he is suffering from teething problem what I should do to relax him as due to pain he is getting hyper and all the time putting fingers in his mouth n drinking 3 ounce or like 2 ounce per hour. immediately he vomits as he Take burp

DMB
Pediatrician, Chennai
Normally teeth start erupting at 6 months of age, but at this time most babies also start putting things in their mouth. This is the way the child explores his or her environment. Fussiness of the child can be caused by other things such as ear pain and blocked nose. Allow the child to put fingers in the mouth as he is using them as a pacifier which will be cleaner than an artificial pacifier that keeps falling to the ground. Your baby may be swallowing a lot of air due to faulty position of bottle feeding and could be a reason for regurgitation of milk. I suggest you change to cup feeds and introduce solids in his diet.

Importance and Tips to Maintain Healthy Milk Teeth

MDS - Pediatric and Preventive Dentistry, BDS
Dentist, Hyderabad
Importance and Tips to Maintain Healthy Milk Teeth

The appearance of the milk teeth is one of the most awaited landmarks in a child's life. The first teeth to erupt are usually the lower front teeth during 6 to 8 months of life, and the last milk tooth to fall off is at 12 to 14 years of age. The playful nature of teeth, difficulty to make them maintain good oral hygiene, and the food habits put the children at increased risk of dental disease.

Very often, because they are in place for a shorter duration, parents tend to ignore decay in the milk teeth. But whether it is decay or gum disease or broken teeth, it is important to immediately treat them.

Listed below are some functions that milk teeth play:

  1. Eating: They may be exerting slightly lesser force than the bigger permanent teeth, but they still play a significant role in chewing and digestion. Children with weak, missing, or decayed molars have poor nutrition and food habits due to their inability to chew food well.
  2. Esthetics: A child with a good set of teeth and an open smile is loved by all. This adds not just to the beauty of the child but also to his self-worth and self-esteem. These children feel more confident and are more social.
  3. Speech development: A good set of teeth are essential for the child's speech development. Improper spacing between teeth or lost tooth not replaced can lead to speech issues.
  4. Space Maintenance: In addition to the above functions, the milk teeth also help to preserve and "maintain" the space that is required for the permanent teeth. As the permanent tooth nears eruption, the milk tooth, gets resorbed, becomes mobile, and finally falls off. In cases where the primary tooth was lost and not replaced, the space may be reduced due to movement of the adjacent and opposing tooth into this space.

Given the above reasons, it is very important to take good care of the primary or milk or deciduous teeth. Some simple things to do would be:

  1. In the very early stages, before regular dental care can begin, the teeth can be wiped off with a gauze wrapped on the finger.
  2. By the first year of life, brushing should be introduced along with rinsing after each meal.
  3. A biannual visit to the dentist for oral prophylaxis with regular cleaning should be started by first year of life.
  4. If the dentist identifies the child to be prone to decay, fluoride application and/or pit and fissure sealants should be used.

These are sufficient reasons to take care of the primary teeth, which play a very important role. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dentist.
