As per the present reports your baby seems to be normal, need not worry about the hb value if its above 10 as it fluctuates most of the time, give a proper diet rich in iron and vitamins like green leafy vegetables, jaggery, dates, carrot, beet root etc. Generally the weight gain halts at this age group and its very slow progress till few years so need not worry abt the weight gain as long as the child is active. Give diet rich in calories if you want the child to gain weight. Giving pediasure after 2 years of age will help in gaining weight.

I have high prolactin level of 30.94. I am unmarried. kindly suggest is it very alarming. What can be done to reduce it?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Please check your thyroid function test, because if there is uncontrolled hypothyroidism then even prolactin level also goes up. If that is not there then we may have to look at other reasons for hyperprolactinemia. And treatment for it. Thanks.

My son is 8 yrs old, his mouse stinks whenever he wake up in the morning, very bad smell is coming from his mouth, please tell me any good tooth paste or any other thing that can permanently remove the bad odour from his mouth

BDS

Hello, Bad odor in morning on waking up is quite normal sometimes. But if it is continuous throughout day his brushing might need to be improved and may need professional health. Also track his water intake. Multiple decayed teeth may also give bad breath. I hope he is not suffering from any medical condition which may have this cause.But now on wards help him to make a habit of twice a day brushing.

My Son 4.5 years old how to get rid of his bedwetting problem. Please suggest how to stop bed wetting. Is it dangerous if not cured?

MD - Paediatrics, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), Postgraduate Diploma in Adolescent Pediatrics
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
Some children continue to bedwet upto 5years and a few even beyond. It is important to have an evaluation for treatable causes of bedwetting like urinary tract infection, unrecgnised constipation or incomplete evacuation, presence of threadworms etc.

This is common that after 6 month of age when complememantary feeding is started some of food is not accepted by baby intially. This is due to like and dislike of food. And also because of underdeveloped taste bud. Try one food at one time three to four day if he did not accept stop that food and try other food for same.

Hi lybrate-user, Try to have more of "lactogogue foods" like: milk, groundnuts, almonds in your diet daily. Supplements are not recommended given your age. Try to cover through natural food as much as possible.

Easy Ways to Reduce Your Kid's Exposure to Cell Phone Radiation

Easy Ways to Reduce Your Kid's Exposure to Cell Phone Radiation

Cell phones bring us close to people, but can also have a harmful effect on our health. Studies show that cell phone radiation could be one of the causes for brain cancer. However, this does not stop us from using a cell phone. Unfortunately, some people also allow their children to use cell phones, thus putting them at risk also.

Here are a few tips to reduce your child's exposure to cell phone radiation:

  1. Limit the use of cell phones: Adding an old school landline to your home can be used not only as a decor element, but functionally as well. When at home, route all calls of your cell phone to the landline. In addition, do not allow your children to use the cell phone as toy to play games on. If you absolutely must, give them the phone to play a game on, but first put it onto flight mode.
  2. Maintain distance: Start using a headset while answering calls on your cell phone. This allows you to keep a distance between the phone and your body. If children use your phone to answer calls, encourage them to do the same as well. As far as possible do not keep your phone in your pocket for long durations. If the cell phone is used as a morning alarm, ensure that it is not kept under the pillow, but on the bedside table.
  3. Text: Studies show that texting emits less radiation than voice calls. Make use of group messaging facilities to further reduce the amount of messages you need to send out and in turn the radiation emitted.
  4. Choose a good case: Some phone cases are built with materials that limit the radiation emitted by the phone. These cases allow the phone to receive signal, but restrict the outgoing radiations, thus protecting the person using the phone.
  5. Find good signal: Using your phone in an area with good reception will not only let you enjoy an uninterrupted call, but can also protect you against cell phone radiation. This is because radiation and signal strength have an inversely proportional relationship; the lower the signal, the higher the amount of radiation emitted.
  6. Ethernet cords: Today, an internet connection is a must have in every house. Along with cell phones, laptops and tablets emit radiation as well. To protect your family from this radiation use an Ethernet cord to connect to the internet instead of a wireless router.

Hi seems your child is having allergic skin problem/A topic dermatitis. The best way to deal is to regularly use emollients to prevent dry skin and in areas with itching and scaling use of local low potency steroids like flutivate.

Try offering one spoonful or two spoonfuls of the following: Pureed or mashed cooked vegetables, such as carrot, parsnip, or potato. Mashed or pureed fruits, such as banana, cooked apple, pear, or mango. Gluten-free cereal, such as baby rice, sago, maize, cornmeal, or millet, mixed with your baby's usual milk. You can also try other fruits, such as peaches and avocados, and vegetables, such as butternut squash, broccoli, and cauliflower. You could try starchy vegetables, too, such as sweet potato. See our article on first tastes for recipe ideas. Once your baby is eating these fruits and vegetables happily, you can move on to other foods from the main groups: bread, rice, potatoes, and pasta dairy foods meat, fish, eggs, and beans Introducing a range of foods and tastes at this stage may reduce the chances of your baby becoming a fussy eater later on. It's important to offer your baby savoury foods as well as sweet at this stage, so she learns to like a range of flavours. Read our article on which weaning foods to introduce when.
