It is difficult to assess the type of rash (Pimples), black heads and texture of skin without seeing. At this age, hormonal changes occurs so these may be normal developmental phenomenon.

Yes its fine. If the baby is otherwise well, its okay. As long as the baby is passing urine throughout the day, ie 6-8 times diapers are being changed or if using cotton nappies. They are being changed 8-10 times.

Because his request are completed by non verbal actions. You have to make him speak by ignoring his activities. Leaving him in children of similar age group will be useful. Correct his words & pronunciations when needed. Never imitate childs voice & words for joy.

Hi, Many kids below the age of 5 years, have very low immunity in the body as a result of which they pick up infections every now and then and suffer a lot. They need to be administered medicines which boost up their immunity. Swarna Bindu Prashana can be administered to the baby on every month on Pushya Nakshatra day, for a minimum period of 24 months to a maximum period of 30 months. This is very beneficial to the kids between the age of 0 - 16 years. Consult an Ayurvedic physician in your city for the same.

Your baby needs only breastmilk till the age of 6 months. You should start with complementary feeding after the baby is six months old. I would need more info to comment on the sleeping trouble.

There will always be variation by which the child feeds. She may feed 1hrly, 2hrly or 3rly or 4hrly. She will take when she is hungry so do no be stressed. She will take amount of milk which she requires. IF there is adequate weight gain and 6-7 urine passage per day then she is getting adequate milk. Infants usually sleep after taking milk so rest assured. Also many infants cry before passing urine and that is perfectly alright. Even after passing urine if she is crying then kindly check her local urinary passage parts as there might be rash which may be causing burning sensation leading to excessive crying.

If baby is getting fever 6-8 hourly, responding to paracetamol, in between fever active, passing normal urine (as it was before illness) and not dull then it may be viral. Any thing else need investigations on day 4.

With so many symptoms it is better to show a neuro pediatrician at least once. And have to talk frankly about long term effect of it. Schooling, mental behaviour is also to be talked out. Need not to be visit frequently to other Dr. Once you are satisfied.

4 Excellent Ways to Break Your Child's Addiction to Sweets

4 Excellent Ways to Break Your Child's Addiction to Sweets

If your child has become increasingly addicted to sweets and other sugary items, this addiction can lead to certain behavioral problems (like mood swings, irritability, anger, etc) in children. Moreover, a high sugar intake can lead to your child falling prey to serious diseases and conditions, including diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular diseases. 

Here's what you can do to break your child's indulgent habits and wean him from ill-health causing culprits like cakes, ice creams, candies, chocolates and rich and creamy desserts etc.

1. Practice what you preach -
In order to develop healthy eating habits in your child, it is imperative for you as a parent to lead by example. When it comes to weaning your child from sugary foods and sweets, you yourself should limit your intake. So, if you tell your child to avoid sweets but love sweets yourself, you'd be setting a bad example by eating them yourself and not letting your child have them. The best thing to do is to be a role model to your child as children learn everything from their parents. 

2. Curb consumption of sugar by deferring intake to a later date -
Instead of depriving your child completely, it would prove to be more useful to tell them that they could have sweets on some other day. This is because if you deny him his indulgence, your child would invariably go on an eating spree the moment an opportunity arises. A study on a group of restrained eaters and non-diet individuals revealed that restrained eaters were found to consume more food than the non-dieting individuals. Not knowing when they could have their favourite foods again, they went on an eating spree.
Make frequent yet small offerings of sweets while explaining to him the importance of moderation and why he/she shouldn't overindulge but space out sugar intake.

3. Try the 90/10 rule - 
Teaching older children the 90/10 principle is another sure-shot way of breaking your child?'s addiction to sweets. The rule calls for 90% of the diet to be made up of healthy food with the remaining 10% being devoted to foods your child wants to indulge in such as junk food, sweets or foods with high sugar content. The total calorie intake that arises from consumption of about 10% or 1-2 fun foods is only about 100-200 calories everyday. 

4. Present your child with healthy alternatives to sugary items -
The next time your child wants to indulge in his sugar craving, instead of giving a processed sugary food, give healthier sweet foods like dates, honey or a fresh sweet fruit.

The big tummy is because of aerophagia - which is quite common at this age. Burping properly will help. No connection with mother drinking more water.

My baby is 11 days old and having gastric problem and vomiting after drinking powder milk.
Vomiting immediately after drinking milk is regurgitation, make sure you do burping properly. If the child is having good activity, no need to do anything except proper burping, however if the child looks sick, then proper consultation may be required.

Cough associated with cold is mostly due to viral infection. Frequent infection is usually due to lack of immunity response. Pls consult pediatrician.

There is no specific food and you have to take all nutritious foods and feed the baby every 2 hours or so . Being calm helps bring out milk . From 4th months you have to give homemade semi solids also
