YOUR NEWBORN WEEK BY WEEK Newborn Finally, your big moment came…and your little baby came out! Here's a glimpse at your newborn's first week of life. 1 Week Old Baby How can such a little thing make such a big noise? Aside from crying, here's what your newborn is up to in his second week of life. 2 Week Old Baby She may be tiny, but your little bundle of joy sure can eat a lot. Feed me, Mommy! 3 Week Old Baby Your baby's not trying to torture you with all that crying -- he's just trying to tell you something. 4 Week Old Baby Are you talking to me? Yes, she is — and your babbling baby wants you to talk back! 5 Week Old Baby Break out the camera (as if you haven't already!) and capture those first real smiles for posterity — or at least to show to Grandma. 6 Week Old Baby Look what my fingers can do! That might be what your baby is cooing to herself as she test-drives those powerful tools attached to her hands. 7 Week Old Baby Smiles and sounds abound as your baby soaks up stimuli and lets you know he loves the world around him. YOUR BABY MONTH BY MONTH 1 Month Old Baby From newborn reflexes and sleep to things to do with baby, what you need to prepare for the first month. 2 Month Old Baby You might be pretty (ok, very) tired these days but one look at that little gummy grin makes it all worthwhile. 3 Month Old Baby So much has happened in so little time! Your baby has gotten a whole lot bigger and his brain power is increasing every day, too! 4 Month Old Baby Plenty of parents consider the next few months to be the golden age of babyhood, and for good reason. 5 Month Old Baby Peek-a-boo, I see you! Get ready to play this classic and other hide-and-seek games as your baby starts to catch on to the fun. 6 Month Old Baby Your baby is halfway to a year already! Watch for skills (and the desire to use them) to grow by leaps and bounds now. 7 Month Old Baby I like that song, mommy! Sing it again…and again…and again… 8 Month Old Baby At this age, those little critters are itching to bust a move so set'em down and watch'em go! 9 Month Old Baby If it seems like some of your baby's adorable sounds are starting to sound like actual words, they are! 10 Month Old Baby With so much ground to cover, your energizer bunny is probably more interested in exploring than eating these days. 11 Month Old Baby If there's trouble to be found, chances are your little one is on the hunt!

Usually children of this age do not suffer from indigestion problem. Try to give her small but frequent home made nutritious diet of her choice and encourage her for some kind of exercises. I hope it may work.

ADHD is not fun for the child!

ADHD or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a condition characterized by an inability to concentrate and sustain attention. It is a biological problem of the brain.

Due to poor concentration the child feels bored easily and may become impulsive and appear to be mischievous

He may answer out of turn and will talk even when not spoken to.

He may have difficulty sitting at one place.

He maybe restless, fidgety and jumping about.

This will hamper his ability to remember things and may become forgetful and lose things.

This is something the child does not do on purpose and feels guilty and unhappy about, making the child feel low on self-esteem which may manifest as aggressive and rebellious behavior.

Tips for the teacher and parents

1. Keep the child close to her in the classroom

2. Keep the child away from the windows

3. Shower praise when he behaves appropriately.

4. Write important information down where the child can easily read and reference it

5.Divide big assignments into smaller ones, and allow children frequent breaks.

6. Incorporate Physical movement into classroom teaching.

7. Working with interruptions:

Reducing the interruptions of children with ADD/ADHD should be done carefully so that the child’s self-esteem is maintained, especially in front of others. Develop a “secret language” with the child with ADD/ADHD. You can use discreet gestures or words you have previously agreed upon to let the child know they are interrupting. Praise the child for interruption-free conversations.

8. Dealing with Impulsivity:

Give consequences immediately following misbehavior. Be specific in your explanation, making sure the child knows how they misbehaved.

Recognize good behavior out loud. Be specific in your praise, making sure the child knows what they did right.

Write the schedule for the day on the board or on a piece of paper and cross off each item as it is completed. Children with impulse problems may gain a sense of control and feel calmer when they know what to expect.

9. Dealing with Hyperactivity:

Ask children with ADD/ADHD to run an errand or do a task for you, even if it just means walking across the room to sharpen pencils or put books away.

Encourage the child to play a sport—or at least run around before and after school.

Provide a stress ball, small toy, or other object for the child to squeeze or play with discreetly at his or her seat.

Limit screen time in favor of time for movement. Your child will enjoy fast games like Subway Surfer and Temple Run.

Make sure a child with ADD/ADHD never misses recess or PT period.

Hi, If a new born baby cries, there are so many reasons behind it - feeling hungry/ gas-formation/ may be clothes are not sufficient or over clothing makes him/her uncomfortable, the temperature of the room is not ideal as per his body, wants pampering, cuddling, etc. Need to know the cause first.

My Kid is having teeth problem (swallow teeth due to bottle feeding but not know) I have consult the doctor near by they suggested the root canal for 5 yrs old kid is it ok to go for root canal into early age. Bcoz its only a milk teeth.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
I dont think that an RCT is required until and ulness there is some serious nerve damage from where the teeth accidentally came out. The milk teeth are shed from 6 years onwards till about 10 years of age. The permanent teeth appear by 6 years of age. Between the ages of 6 - 9 years the child has some milk teeth as well as some permanent teeth This period is called the mixed dentition period. By about 12 years all the milk teeth should be shed off and replaced by the permanent teeth.

Hi my baby 1 month old. Due to my age I think I am not generating enough milk. How can I increase my milk generation. What can I eat. Any medication.

Hi my baby 1 month old. Due to my age I think I am not generating enough milk. How can I increase my milk generation....
There are actually no medications to increase milk. And milk generation is not related to age. The more the baby suckles, the more milk the breasts produce. Try to put the baby to breast more often. Using a breast pump to stimulate breasts would also help. But remember, each time you give formula feed to your baby, your milk production goes down.

How old is your baby now? stick to tinned milk till 9 months, ven she should be given 3 solid feeds and 3-4 milk feeds. At that age, if she is eating 3 times properly, you can switch to amul milk, that too 2 times plus 2 of your feeds.

It is a gradual process. It is recommended to continue feed till 2 years of age. Sometimes it takes more time. Don't worry and keep trying. As your baby will grow he/she will stop breast feed. Regards.

Iron Deficiency - How it Puts Your Child at Risk

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health
Pediatrician, Hyderabad
Iron Deficiency - How it Puts Your Child at Risk

Iron is an essential nutrient and mineral that is required by adults and children alike. Iron helps move oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body and helps muscles store and use oxygen. It is especially important for children because it aids development and prevents anaemia. Untreated iron deficiency in children can cause physical and mental delays. It can lead to less healthy red blood cells in the child's blood stream which will cause a delay in the growth of physical and mental faculties.

Risk factors for iron deficiency in children

Infants and children at highest risk of iron deficiency include:

  1. Babies who are born prematurely or have a low birth weight
  2. Babies who drink cow's milk before age 1
  3. Breast-fed babies who aren't given complementary foods containing iron after age 6 months
  4. Babies who drink formula that isn't fortified with iron
  5. Children ages 1 to 5 who drink more than 24 ounces (710 milliliters) of cow's milk, goat's milk or soy milk a day
  6. Children who have certain health conditions, such as chronic infections or restricted diets
  7. Children ages 1 to 5 who have been exposed to lead
  8. Adolescent girls also are at higher risk of iron deficiency because their bodies lose iron during menstruation.

Symptoms of iron deficiency anaemia

The signs and symptoms of iron deficiency anaemia in children may include:

  1. Pale skin
  2. Fatigue or weakness
  3. Slow cognitive and social development
  4. Inflammation of the tongue
  5. Difficulty maintaining body temperature
  6. Increased likelihood of infections
  7. Unusual cravings for non-nutritive substances, such as ice, dirt or pure starch

Prevent iron deficiency in children

Take steps to prevent iron deficiency in your child by paying attention to his or her diet. For example:

  1. Breast-feed or use iron-fortified formula. Breast-feeding until your child is age 1 is recommended. If you don't breast-feed, use iron-fortified infant formula.
  2. Encourage a balanced diet. When you begin serving your baby solids, typically between ages 4 months and 6 months, feed him or her foods with added iron, such as iron-fortified baby cereal. For older children, good sources of iron include red meat, chicken, fish, beans and dark green leafy vegetables. Between ages 1 and 5, don't allow your child to drink more than 24 ounces (710 milliliters) of milk a day.
  3. Enhance absorption. Vitamin C helps promote the absorption of dietary iron. You can help your child absorb iron by offering foods rich in vitamin C, such as melon, strawberries, kiwi, broccoli, tomatoes and potatoes.
  4. Consider iron supplements. If your baby was born prematurely or with a low birth weight or you're breast-feeding a baby older than 4 months and he or she isn't eating two or more servings a day of iron-rich foods, talk to your child's doctor about oral iron supplements.

Make sure that you watch out for the tell tale signs of iron deficiency and take the necessary precautions to avoid the same. If you wish to discuss about any specific child related problem, you can consult a specilized pediatrician and ask a free question.

My baby is 15 month old. On Saturday he started vomiting and had fever. We went to our doctor and he gave medicines. Also informed us that he might have loose motions. And we have to do stool test. And yesterday he started having loose motions. Now our relatives are saying that all these are happening because of molar teeth eruptions. Is this true?

well teeth eruption per se is not the cause ..reason is habit of putting eveything in mouth while teeth eruption is happening.which brings lot many viruses in tummy.eventually leading to infections. so, 1.frequent hand washing and good hygeine is the only answer. 2.give probiotics 3.immunize the baby on time.
