My 15 months old baby girl refuses all time to eat her meal. I am depressed for her intake. I just need an advice how to make her eat and see her healthy.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Usually children eat appreciate to their requirements but not up to the expectations of parents. If weight is appropriate for age, nothing needs to be done. In that case, stop worrying and start enjoying meals with children. They will learn how to eat by imitating you. You eat, whatever you feel your daughter should eat, with her.

My 1.5 month old baby has not done potty for the past 7 days though he keeps passing gas and burps normally Anything serious.

If your baby is exclusively breastfed, it doesn't matter if he does not pass stool everyday. Some breastfed babies go without passing stools for a week, but it is perfectly normal provided they are exclusively breastfed.

My son will be turning 1 after few days, till date he is not having milk from bottle, her mother feeds her or we had to do it through spoon but still it is very hard to feed him, also he takes less sleep and keeps doing mischiefs. Please suggest.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, you should give him Kindival , 2 tabs thrice daily for a good sleep and behaviour. You should develop the practice of spoon feeding because this the best way to avoid unwanted infections. If your baby get used to having a bottle-feed every time he fall asleep, he might develop an association between the bottle and sleep. He might then find it hard to fall asleep without a bottle. There is a risk of tooth decay Milk is quite high in sugar. Soaking your baby’s teeth in it overnight can cause tooth decay. There is a risk of ear infections When a baby drinks lying down, milk can flow through to the ear cavity, which can cause ear infections. Thanks , take care.

What is the effect to stop adwize tablet after taking this tablet for 3 and half years to cure my autistic child now aged 13 years, who is also is an epilectic patient.

BHARAT JYOTI, MRACGP, INCEPTOR, MD-PhD, MD - Psychiatry, FIPS, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Your child has to continue Antiepileptic medication. As regards Autism ia an associated disorder, hence advisable not to stop medication. You can see Autism is a condition that affects mental and physical well being. In fact autism is not a single disorder rather a group of ailments that is classified as autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Autistic children have problems with social interactions. They may also encounter problems with verbal and non-verbal communication, exhibit pattern of repetitive behavior with narrow, restricted interests, hyper sensitive to light, sound, touch etc (sensory overload). Otherwise majority of the cases are diagnosed anywhere between the age of 2-5 years. Interestingly, there are many individuals who may have ASD but never aware of it. Though the exact cause for autism is unknown, genetics plays an important part. Environmental, immunological and metabolic factors may have a contributory role. Since, it is a spectrum of disorders, there is no single reason attributed to this condition. Genetic, environmental, immunological and metabolic causes may be the contributing factor. Where genetic basis is identified as a cause, palliative measures are initiated immediately. When the reasons are not clear, diagnosis, classification and management invariably gets delayed. As stated earlier under watchful eyes of parents or family physicians, autistic symptoms could be recognized early. Severely autistic infants do not make normal babbling sound and have abnormal eye movements. Some of the symptoms include but restricted to limited vocabulary, unable to follow verbal or facial cues, abnormal eye movement or hand eye co-ordination etc. They also tend to make incoherent sounds. These children also do not follow simple commands. Many times these symptoms are glossed over delaying early diagnosis. Denial, my child is normal attitudes contribute to the delay in early diagnosis. In general ASD is loosely classified into five different types. However, this classification is hotly debated. 1. Pervasive developmental disorder(PDD) - Children suffering from PDD show delay in development of social and language skills 2. Kanner?s syndrome - This is most common type of autistic disorder. They live in their own world and have poor social interactions. They do not like any change in their routine. Individuals with this disorder get affected by loud sounds and cannot lead a normal life as they have low communication skills 3. Rett?s syndrome - Usually seen in females and is quite rare. They are mentally retarded and show muscle atrophy. The individuals show repetitive hand movements. 4. Childhood disintegrative disorder- The symptoms starts to appear in otherwise normal children between 2-4 years of age. They stop talking and interacting with people around them. Individuals start losing motor skills after the age of two 5. Asperger syndrome- Often misdiagnosed as obsessive ?Compulsive disorder or Attention ?Deficit disorder. They don?t show normal social interactions and have problems communicating. Children with Asperger syndrome show repetitive actions and exhibit poor motor skills. Some are thought have talent on which if they focus on could reach great height. Autism is known for decades, unfortunately, there are very few medications available to treat ASD. However, not all hopes are lost. In contemporary medical system (allopathic medicine) different symptom specific treatment options are offered for autistic patients. It is to be noted that these are mood altering medicines. Therefore, qualified physicians should be consulted and the medications administered under care. Ayruvedic approach: In ayurveda there are some herbal medications prescribed for autistic individuals. These are more of remedial measures than cure. Therefore, these medications are to be taken for life. As in many mood altering disorders, besides medications, management is suggested. Very interestingly, an Indian mother of an autistic son, Mrs. Soma Mukhopadhyay, developed Rapid Prompting Method (RPM) to train autistic children to lead near normal life. This has been demonstrated to be a boon for several severely autistic children. Her son Tito Mukhopadhyay is indisputably the most famous Indian with autism. With his mother?s guidance he had written many poems and authored a book titled ?Beyond the Silence: My Life, The World and Autism. Noting her revolutionary method she was brought to the United States by Cure Autism Now Foundation. Since then she had refined her techniques. Currently she is running ?Helping Autism through Learning and Outreach ? HALO? foundation (www.Halo-soma.Org). Recently, she had published a book ?Understanding autism Through Rapid Prompting Method? that details the technique developed by her.

My 16 days old baby is on breast milk but sometimes when he feels hungry I give him formula milk Farex with bottle. I wanna ask, is there any problem to give formula milk n breast milk both? And he is not passing poop from last four days Plzz need urgent help.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Kendujhar
Dear Mom, You should not give formula, and you should give her Exclusive breastfeeding. Crying may not be equivalent to hunger. If your baby is passing 6 or more urine per 24 hour, then breastmilk is sufficient. If you still have doubt, weigh her once a week . if she is gaining more than 140 gm per week then she is having enough milk. Benefit s of Exclusive breastfeeding are many, u can find out from net, and definite ly formula can be potentially harmful. So please please give your baby exclusive breastfeeding that is the best gift you can give to her

All other features of the foetus are normal. Please suggest if the baby would be normal or there is 50-50 chances of downs syndrome. Nobody else in the family has this. 2 months aho she had a spontaneous miscarriage plus she has hypothyroid which is normal now. She is now four months pregnant.

It is very hard to tell if the child will have down's syndrome or not. It is only time that will tell and for that matter of fact, it is only chance and please think positively about the situation. The chances are very less and even if it turns out to be so, downs kids are trainable. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

My son is 5 years old. Frequently he get cold when season changes or when ice creams taken. Recently he got eye allergy and found long site problem. Suggest for further for reducing this problem.

DOMS, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, well your son is having chronic allergy, frequent cold and redness of eyes with frequent eye rubbing are the symptoms. Chronic allergy is quite commonly seen these days and this is seen frequently in your son's age group. Don't worry about it but this problem continues for long and you have to be vigilant to get him treated properly everytime. He has to use glasses everytime as this will help with his eyesight as well as keep dust n other allergens away from eyes. Wash his eyes every time he comes home from outside. Start with some immunity booster preprations and multivitamin supplements along with antihistamines. Take care.

Is Dabur Janam Ghunti is safe for one month old infant ? If yes for how much time it should be continued ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
For one month old baby it is not needed though there is no harm in using, dabur janma ghunti, an ayurvedic medicine, plays a dual role in all-round growth of infants. Dabur janma ghunti acts as an effective remedy for stomach ailments arising out of teething such as flatulence, constipation, diarrhoea, vomiting etc. It also helps in the growth process by expelling intestinal worms and toning up the digestive system of the infant with the goodness of traditional ayurvedic ingredients like anjeer, kishmish, ajwain etc.

Asthma: Breathing Made Easy with Homeopathy

B.H.M.S
Sexologist, Hyderabad
Asthma: Breathing Made Easy with Homeopathy

Asthma is a respiratory disorder, which is characterized by the narrowing down and inflammation of the inner lining of the airways of the lung, resulting in excessive secretion of mucous. The airways are responsible for the passage of air from and to the lungs. Asthma can affect any person of any age group; however, the symptoms of the condition can vary. The symptoms of asthma include severe pain in the chest, coughing and problems in breathing, interruption in sleep due to breathing problems and a croaking sound during exhalation. Asthma, in most cases, tends to be chronic and can exist throughout your life with eventual changes in the nature of attack.

The most common causes of asthma are:

  1. Common cold and allergies from dust particles, smoke and minute insects might be catalysts for asthma.
  2. Suffering from severe anxiety might also cause asthma.
  3. Asthma might occur as a result of physical exercise and as a side effect of some medications such as ibuprofen and aspirin.

As of now, asthma is incurable. But medications can control the symptoms. Homeopathic preparations can also be useful for the treatment of asthma. Some common homeopathic remedies are as follows:
1. Arsenic album: If the symptoms include severe episodes of stress and nervousness, immense thirst but the inability to drink much water, severe attacks at night and intense pain in the upper right portion of the chest, Arsenic Album might be very useful to cure the problem.
2. Nux Vomica: If the attack is primarily caused because of gastric disorders or sudden outbursts of anger along with symptoms of dry cough, headaches and stomach aches, Nux Vomica might be used as a remedial medicine.
3. Carbo Veg: Carbo veg can be recommended if the symptoms include a pale face at the time of attack along with cold feet and hands and an itchy sensation in the larynx.
4. Kali bichromicum and Moschus: If the attacks become worse in the morning accompanied by yellow mucus discharge, the above mentioned homeopathic preparations are recommended. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath and ask a free question.
