Hi my daughter doesn't like to eat anything. Need to feed her forcefully and she just vomiting the next moment after having the food. Please suggest me.

General Physician,
Hi my daughter doesn't like to eat anything. Need to feed her forcefully and she just vomiting the next moment after ...
Please tell her weight and do not force feed children and if the activity is good you can relax . Check her blood CBC and TSH. Things to avoid • Do not refuse to give high-energy foods, like ice cream, cakes, biscuits and chocolate, in the hope that your child will eat 'proper' meals and 'healthy' foods. Reason: This is not a good way to get your child to eat new foods, and your child might lose weight if you withhold their 'safe' foods. • Do not try to force your child to eat food. Reason: This will make your child even more anxious at mealtimes, and may cause your child to vomit the food back up. • Leave long gaps between meals to try to make your child more hungry or hide new foods inside foods that your child already likes. Reason: This will make your child less hungry over time, and may lead to weight loss. Some children can very easily detect new tastes and smells, even when hidden in other foods. Your toddler may just stop eating the liked foods. Things that help • Encourage your child to experience different textures through 'messy' play every day. Your toddler may find some textures (like Play-Doh) very difficult, so start with textures that they are happy to touch. This may need to be drier consistencies initially, such as rice or lentils. Gradually progress to more messy/wet substances, allowing your toddler to gain confidence. Have plenty of fun and get messy. If you don't like touching certain textures yourself, or don't feel comfortable allowing your toddler to make a mess, then why not take them to a playgroup in your area? Reason: Many children who are extreme food refusers are very sensitive to touch on the hands and mouth, and so will not even pick up new foods. Messy play helps them to get used to new textures. • Give small frequent meals of foods that your child accepts. Reason: Some children become very anxious at mealtimes and are sometimes very slow eaters. Small frequent meals will help them to take in the calories that they need. • Remember, even children who are extremely faddy eaters usually grow and develop normally, if they are given the foods that they will accept. Reason: It is important to keep your child growing well, and these extreme food refusers do grow as we would expect them to if they have enough of the food that they will eat.

She is definitely under wt. Good nourishing diet rich in protein fried in oil/ ghee is right way to increase her wt. Give her well cooked in home diet of her choice. Nuts and dry fruits are also good for micro nutrients in addition to green vegetables and fruits.

Child Aphasia - Symptoms And Treatment!

Child Aphasia - Symptoms And Treatment!

Child Aphasia is complex disorder that is caused by damage to parts of the brain that controls language and speech. This disorder affects the child's ability to express herself through words and understand the speech of other people. The severity of the problem depends on the extent of the damage as well as the location of the damage. Since this is not a birth disorder, therefore, you should be much more careful as so you notice that your kid is facing language disorder. A speech pathologist can diagnose language disorders and teach your child strategies to help.

What are the leading symptoms of aphasia in kids?

  1. Not understanding speech is one of the most common symptoms. Most patients cannot understand spoken or written language. Typically in these cases, the patient suffers from fluent Aphasia, which is caused by damage to the left temporal lobe of the brain. The patient's speech might seem meaningless and incoherent with lots of unnecessary words being used. The child usually becomes upset when people don't understand what he is saying.
  2. Patients suffering from this disorder also have trouble expressing their thoughts and understanding language and they often take more time to communicate. Only short sentences are used by these patients with words often left out, making the sentence sound incomplete. Such children suffer from non-fluent Aphasia where they understand what others are saying, but cannot communicate or speak well themselves. Their speech is almost similar to that of telegraphic languages that are usually followed by those toddlers who are just learning how to speak.
  3. Some children suffering from Aphasia might have trouble repeating words even though they don't have problem understanding what others are saying. These children suffer from conduction Aphasia and will be able to reproduce only parts of a sentence, if asked to repeat.
  4. Children affected with this disorder may see to be not listening to you or ignore you.
  5. Such kids might also have behavioral problems and may not be able to keep up with their friends and classmates. They will also suffer from forgetfulness.

Causes of Aphasia: The leading cause of Aphasia is brain injury, brain infection, brain tumour or abscess or bleeding in the brain.

Diagnosis of the disease: The disorder is diagnosed by a speech therapist who assesses the condition with a variety of tools to figure out the extent of damage. Its best to take your child to a paediatric speech pathologist who is an expert in treating children with brain injuries. The child will then be assessed on auditory comprehension, verbal expression, reading and writing ability and functional communication.

Treatment: There are many people who think that the speech trouble cannot be treated, but they are completely wrong. There are various ways to treat Aphasia. The younger the patient the better the chances of recovery since the brain is not that developed to handle specific functions in kids as in adults. The treatment will depend on the severity of the condition and the goal that is to be achieved. Factors behind this trouble need to be determined first otherwise the perfect treatment cannot be decided. Some of the most prominent factors are aphasia type, brain-injury cause, age, brain-lesion size and positioning and others.

Some of the leading tips that can be applied as per Association of National Stroke are as follows:

  1. Using props can be helpful in getting across messages.
  2. Speaking slowly and staying calm while speaking.
  3. Drawing pictures or words on paper for communication.

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pediatrician.

He has vit. D deficiency due to inadequqte intake of vit d which is essential for absorption of calcium. Rapidly growing children require more calcium & vit. D. You should give vit. D supplement 30000 units once a week for 4 weeks. Exposing baby to sun will also be benefecial.

Hello, First you need to be very sure that signs you are observing are of hunger and you are not over-feeding your baby. If breast milk milk is not adequate then you have few options 1. Formula milk as prescribed by your dietitian 2. Cow's milk 3. Goat's milk More preferable is formula milk as it would be sterile and consistent in quality. Please confirm with your paediatrician. Hope this helps! take care.

Don't worry. Breastfed babies may pass seven eight times stools per day or once in four five days. Both are normal if child is playful, active and putting on weight. When child does not pass stool daily, she should pass gas daily, so that we know it's not obstruction and doesn't need any treatment. Obstruction requires immediate medical attention. Constipated stools will be hard and will cause pain while passing where as normal stools passed after four five days will be soft and will have normal consistency.

There is no need to give Iso Plus Isotonic or other artificial flavoured health drinks to children unless they are required. You can give them natural drinks like fruit juices, buttermilk, lemon water etc. Natural drinks are better option for children rather than packed drinks.

No issues. If you wash his hands atleast 2 to 3 times a day. 3 months old baby does not come in contact with floor, surfaces or inefcted materials.
