Hello, I gave birth via c sec ; days back.I get breast milk but irrespective of how much time i give feed he is not satisfied and top feed needs to be given.Please help me?

DCH, MBBS (MAMC)
Pediatrician, Delhi
One should give exclusive breast feed to baby till 6mth of age. Milk production is a reflex process, more suking at breast will produce more milk. If u give top feed, baby will stop sucking at breast and milk production will decrease. So avoid top milk and give more of breast milk.

What should I give as a food to my 8 month old son? And what shall I use in his body for this summer. He can't tolerate this summer. He likes to leave in cool temperature.

I saw your query regarding feeds to a baby 8 month old, first of all at 8 months old age, he's just trying to accommodate with a new environment as thermostatic centres in the brain are yet to develop so while feeding them you must concentrate on more and more liquid constitution of feeds than solid. Also try to maintain their hydration to avoid fluid deficit because of overheating. Expecting at this age you must have started weaning already, consider calorie requirement as per age along with hydration of the baby.

Hearing Loss in Children - Signs + Treatment

MBBS (M.A.M.C), M.S. ENT
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Hearing Loss in Children - Signs + Treatment

You may find out that your child is suffering from hearing loss when he is born or he may be diagnosed with the condition later in life. Hearing loss in children is commonly caused by otitis media, birth problems and on the account of certain injuries or illnesses.

Signs and symptoms

The early stage symptoms of hearing loss in children are as follows:

  1. No reaction to extremely loud noises

  2. No response or reaction to your voice

  3. The child makes some sounds, which taper off

The other symptoms which follow include:

  1. He may pull and rub his ears.

  2. He may act cranky constantly without any proper reason.

  3. He might stop paying attention.

  4. Low energy levels are indicated.

  5. He may find it hard to follow directions.

  6. He may ask you to increase the volume of the radio or TV.

  7. Fever and ear pain are also likely symptoms.

Treatment

Early hearing loss can affect your child’s language learning skills. If the problem is diagnosed and treated soon, the problem with language can be avoided. The method of treatment depends on the cause of hearing loss in your child and the severity of hearing loss.

There are certain medicines for hearing---prescribed by your ENT Surgeon. Pleas take the point watchful waiting. Even if you have slightest doubt of hearing loss contact ENT immediately.

The primary treatment methods of hearing loss in children include the following:

  1. Watchful waiting: Sometimes, the condition may resolve on its own and the treatment involves simple monitoring of your child for positive changes.

  2. Medicines: There are certain medicines for hearing loss in children, which may be prescribed by your pediatrician.

  3. Ear tubes: Ear tubes may be recommended if medicines and monitoring do not work. The tubes allow fluid to drain and help in preventing infections. A minor surgery has to be undertaken on your child for getting the ear tubes placed. This will solve the hearing loss and other related issues.

  4. Hearing aids: Hearing aids may be used to allow your child hear better. It is safe for children to use ear tubes after the age of one month. For the right hearing aid for your child, you need to consult a hearing specialist.

  5. Implants: Cochlear implants are used to treat hearing loss in many children. These are electronic devices which are put in the inner ear to benefit hearing. These should be used only if hearing aids did not succeed and these are meant to be used only in case of children with serious hearing problems.

There are several other devices, which can help your child with hearing loss. For suggestions and recommendations, you must take your child to a hearing specialist.

It is said that eucalyptus oil is useful for cold and used in some inhalers for cold. I think, you may use a finger touch to his bed.

There are no such medications I am afraid. However you can try reglan tablet 10mg thrice daily for 5 days and see if this helps. This is an antiemetic and is not used for this purpose ; though a few of my patients have benefitted.

Up to six month solely the child should be on breast fed and then after liquid diet and mashed food should be started. You can give him rice water, pulse water, mashed khichadi, mashed potato and other vegetables, biscuit in milk, mashed fruits, fruit juices, cerelac at this stage. The child should be double of his birth weight at the age of 6 month so check his progress by weighing him.

Vaccine mut be give on specified date, but if its not possible due such unavoidable instances then, need to worry. Let your child recover completely, then you see your pediatrician. Vaccination delay is not a serious problem, for few vaccines, but as far as possible it should and must be given once your baby is healthy. Kindly visit your pediatrician, as he will guide you better. Happy Parenting!

Hello weight is almost ok may be your baby have dysentery, wait for 2- 3 days, isomil and temporary stopping breast milk will help in reducing amount of loose stool. But stopping beast milk in 5 month baby is not ideal head control completes by 5-6 months, delay in another 1-2 months is acceptable, please provide birth details.

gastro colic reflex, not unusual in some children.But as loose motions are not observed with medicine, probably unhygenic conditions are responsible for the problem.Any improvement in hygeine will be very useful.
