breast milk is critical to their baby’s bone development, mothers should be sure to have enough calcium, or risk bone loss in her mouth, which can worsen periodontal diseases.

I have a problem of bedwetting. I am suffering from my childhood so please help me to cure this problem as it is not good for me.

MBBS MD DCH, Dch
Pediatrician, Muzaffarpur
I have a problem of bedwetting. I am suffering from my childhood so please help me to cure this problem as it is not ...
Well bedwetting also known as nocturnal enuresis is not uncommon in childhood due to immaturity of full urinary bladder which fails to send signal to brain to awaken the child. Most cases have genetic predisposition (familial tendency). Invariably the condition remits once the child grows up. It is uncommon to persist in adolescent age group. What to do then? it is first desirable to rule out any structural or functional anamoly of urinary tract. Once ruled out then following measures help a lot. 1 toilet training: to hold urine during day time to strengthen/enhance bladder capacity 2 to void urine 2 hours prior to sleep 3 no water/liquid intake within 2 hours of sleep. 4 role of drugs like imipramine is limited. There is relapse once medicine is stopped 5 wet bed alarm bell has been found to be very effective as with single drop of urine passed during sleep shall alarm the bell and person shall go the toilet for completion voiding 6 I have found with mentat syrup very encouraging results. 7 the family support is required! 8 there is nothing to be disappointed. You shall overcome this problem slowly but surely

You need to worry and et the child evaluated if the child has persistant vomiting after falling from bed. If it was a single episode and if child is active, need not worry. It might be just a coincidence.

Hi how to take care of 3 months old baby as he will become mentally and physically fit

DMB
Pediatrician, Chennai
A 3 month old baby needs only breast feeding. Keep him dry and talk to him a lot. For improving mental function show colorful balls and hang toys above his cot. Also give just dee drops (vit d) 1 ml daily for 6 months.

Difficult to find out reason why it has happened in your child ! but Viral infections are the most common cause of meningitis, followed by bacterial infections. How ever there are fe risk factors :- Risk factors Risk factors for meningitis include: Skipping vaccinations. Risk rises for anyone who hasn't completed the recommended childhood or adult vaccination schedule. Age. Most cases of viral meningitis occur in children younger than age 5. Bacterial meningitis is common in those under age 20. Living in a community setting. College students living in dormitories, personnel on military bases, and children in boarding schools and child care facilities are at greater risk of meningococcal meningitis. This is probably because the bacterium is spread by the respiratory route, and spreads quickly through large groups. Pregnancy. Pregnancy increases the risk of listeriosis — an infection caused by listeria bacteria, which also may cause meningitis. Listeriosis increases the risk of miscarriage, stillbirth and premature delivery. Compromised immune system.

Hi.

Along with breast milk you can give homemade semi solids like khichdi, mashed banana, egg yolk. I can suggest better (local foods prepared at home) . You can ask me privately to advise you regularly as your personal doctor.

If child is active and gaining weight according to his age then train him for toileting habit by encouraging him to sit on pot daily or twice in a day for about 5-10 minutes, give good quantity of water and liquids to drink. It may be helpful.

Burp him regularly after each meal. When you put him to sleep ensure that the head end is elevated about 15 degrees. This is self limiting and usually finishes by 6 months of age

It's too early to stop breastfeeding. You should continue at least till the age of 2 years. Lf you want to stop due to genuine reason it should be gradual.

You can, but I suggest give paracetamol 1st, then if it doesn't subside in a hours time, give ibuprofe. Make sure you are not over dosing your child.
