Whenever you take your meal, give him a little of food as just for sake of to develop taste and repeat whenever you get opportunity several time in a day but do not force to eat. Thus he may develop taste and may start eating. Continue breast feed. Iron has nothing to do with this problem. One brand of iron is sufficient.

Skin color of the baby is similar to parents skin. So if that's the case then please don't try to change nature. If both parents are fair and only son is dark then that needs evaluation for endocrine reasons.

My son is 5 years old and is taking Homeopathic medicine for cold and cough. He was quiet relieved with the treatment. But since two days he's taking homeopathic medicine for fever but I see no sign of improvement. So can I give him allopathic medicine simultaneously.

Avoid mixing two modes of medicine. Meet your doctor for further management for fever and cough and cold. Might require medications.

Tips for helping your child stop thumbsucking:

Praise your child for not sucking.
Children often suck their thumbs when feeling insecure or needing comfort. Focus on correcting the cause of the anxiety and provide comfort to your child.
For an older child, involve him or her in choosing the method of stopping.
Your dentist can offer encouragement to your child and explain what could happen to their teeth if they do not stop sucking.

Cold without fever is due to allergy. You must avoid possible allergens like dust, pollen etc. Show to a pediatrician.

My daughter is 6 years. She is becoming arrogant and restless. If some horror picture she observed confirm she will vomit in night during sleep. We (myself, my wife and my only daughter) a flat in kolkata. Our parents live in native. She like swimming but couldn't try to swim without boat.

Don't panic please she is just 6yrs. Few points? she requires love, affection & understanding from her parents? parents should not be scolding the child, due to which child can become fearful? accept the child & then empower? no activities which can make child restless like parents fighting with each other, parents themselves worrying a lot, tv shows and movies of such type? telling & teaching something while child is on bed at bedtime which can make the child calm & peaceful & confident? children do what they observe compared to what we teach. Very long discussion.

You can use them for sure, they will help out as there will be multi-vitamins, minerals in them. There will be standards and will be approved by the food authority before promoting the product on media. So, you can use, not a problem. Don't use any other supplements to boost health.

Regarding colour of skin, it may change by growing of age since he is very young but swollen hard skin may be keloid which can be treated either by local injectable medicine or by surgery. Consult either skin specialist or surgeon.

Congratulations. Hold on to the faith in breastfeeding, you really don't need anything else. 4.9 kg weight at 3.5 months is good weight gain with exclusive breastfeeding. Baby will need only iron and vitamin D 3 daily supplements and after six months weaning with regular home food in addition to breasfeeding. You can fight your worries if you can plot growth of the baby on IAP growth chart. If it is within normal limits you have no reason to worry. By the way appetizers at all ages are no more than a placebo. Treat the child if ill. Be happy and enjoy together (with all family) healthy meals prepared at home. This is the best ever appetizer we need.

If he is active and feeding well doing all activities normal than you should not worry because some children have tendency to remain warm due to high basic metabolic rate but no problem in vitamin d deficiency body remains warm give vitamin d drops regularly. In hyperthyroidism which is rare body can be warm.

My daughter is 14 months old. She had undergone surgery for not passing her first stool due to meconium ileus. I had came to know that meconium ileus will be due to cystic fibrosis. Please inform me about the symptoms of cystic fibrosis and other reasons for having meconium ileus.

Meconium ileus (mi) is a condition where the content of the baby's bowel (meconium) is extremely sticky and causes the bowel to be blocked at birth. In most cases the bowel itself is complete and intact but it is just the inside that is blocked. In some cases there has been a twist of the bowel before birth, which has caused the bowel to be blind ending (an atresia). Most babies with meconium ileus (90%) have cystic fibrosis (cf) and it is this that has caused the sticky meconium. Meconium ileus is a rare condition affecting only 1 in 25, 000 babies. For further doubts and regular advice on child rearing as your family doctor you can ask personally.

How Homeopathy Helps Manage Motor Tics?

Motor tics are generally experienced by children, and the symptoms can last up to one year. This disorder is characterised by brief and uncontrolled spasm like motions which are also accompanied by screams and other outbursts. If the physical and vocal tics come together for each attack, then the condition is known as Tourette Syndrome. Motor tics may occur due to problems in the functioning of the neurotransmitters in the child’s brain. These are chemicals that are usually responsible for transmitting signals throughout the brain, and a malfunction can lead to serious issues. Here are a few Homeopathic ways of dealing with this disorder.

Selective Treatment: Homeopathy will provide a form of ad hoc care that can help in treating the various symptoms that are associated with these tics. The symptoms include obsessive compulsive disorder as well as the tendency of exhibitionism. Also, the mechanical repetition of actions with head jerking movements and lip biting as well as wincing are some of the main symptoms that one will experience in such cases. While most of these symptoms tend to vanish as one progresses towards adulthood, it has been found that Ignata and Cuprum Metallicum are some of the Homeopathic medicines that can help in treating these symptoms, as well as painful facial tics. Agaricus Muscarius can also help in treating the symptoms of motor tics.

Prevention: The point of Homeopathy medication is also to prevent the occurrence of such tics. Cina 15 CH can be prescribed for this purpose along with Zinc Metallicum. Also, these medicines will help in treating the anxiety that the child may feel when suffering from this condition. Further, many Homeopath doctors will recommend and administer a Hyoscyamus based treatment to deal with this aspect of the condition. Hysteria and violent movements can also be prevented with the help of Staphysagria.

Involuntary Movements: The treatment of involuntary movements felt as a part of this condition can take place with the help of Homeopathic medicines like Sepia, China, Zinc and Lycopodium. A Gelasium-based treatment can also be prescribed in case the tics are accompanied by violent head movements and hysterical fits.

Visit to a Doctor: For most Homeopathic treatments, especially for conditions like these, it is important that you visit the doctor for physical examination. Based on your symptoms, the doctor will provide the right dosage and right treatment. Also its important to monitor the progress so that the diseased can be managed. In some cases, if the symptoms cannot be contained by the medication, one may require immediate hospitalisation. The doctor may also check for symptoms related to Parkinson’s disease, as many times tics are a symptom of this disease, especially when they are experienced by adults. In most cases, these patients react well to Homeopathy based treatment methods.
