Respected Sir/Madam, I have a girl child of age 4 years. She has so many problem from her birth time. At the time of birth she cry after 5 minutes for birth aphasia. During 1st month she admitted several time at nursing home for dyreh, dehydration etc . From that time she has delayed milestone problem.Her neck stiffen after 6 months, she start crawling after 18th month & standup and start walking after 30th months. After 2years of her age we are go to Bangalore ,after so many test and MRI doctors are said she has brain sell damaged . Now my daughter can walk near about normally ,she can understand most our talk, she can follow most our instruction but she can not talk, only few word she can say, like ma,baba etc. For this we consult with speech therapist but Doctor said my daughter have lack of concentration ,so he just now are not able to help me for this. So please suggest me what can I do now , we have to maintain any special diet chart, we are doing physio therapy from the beginning also add dha supplement from her 2 years of age. So please send me reply with suggestion & advice at earliest as possible. Thanking you

Pediatrician,
I can understand your pain,anxiety and suffering.It's a really difficult situation to be in. Your daughter suffered perinatal hypoxia and there by some damage to brain. It is going to have some consequences but fortunately she is able to stand, walk with little delay.Same may be expected in development of speech too. It's a team work to help such differently abled children. Visit such a hospital which has child guidance clinic where there is a team of doctors consisting of Paediatrician,psychiatrist, psychotherapist as well as physio and occupational therapist. With persistent efforts she will be an independent adult for sure.

Bedwetting is considered aa normal till 6 years. But if it has occurred after a period of good control then you have to rule out urinary tract infection and diabetes.

First precaution include burping after each feed and holding upright for sometime, second is do demand feeding as overfeeding may be the concern. If continues then see your paediatrician to start medicine for the same to control that possible reflux. Tc.

Night Time Cough - 5 Tips to Manage it

Night Time Cough - 5 Tips to Manage it

Coughing during the night can really wreak havoc for your sleep and cause inexplicable discomfort in the throat and chest region. Thankfully, you can manage it by soothing your tickling throat as well as sensitive airways before you go to bed at night. 

  1. Drink herbal tea: A mugful of non-caffeinated tea mixed with a teaspoon of honey before going to bed can help you to a considerable extent. This is because any warm liquid has the power to break down the formation of mucus in the throat region and with a bit of honey, the herbal tea becomes even more powerful.
  2. Try to sleep in an inclining position: Gravity is your greatest enemy while combating night-time cough. When you lie down flat on your back at night, all the mucus and dust particles, which you have swallowed all through the day, would accumulate in the throat area and aggravate it making more cough. But you can easily defy gravitational force by piling up some pillows and prop yourself on them while sleeping. You may also keep a wooden block of 4 inches height under your head, which would keep the acids in the stomach so that they don’t come up to irritate your throat.
  3. Make sure you use the steam cautiously: When your airways are dry, it can make you cough harder. Therefore, you may find relief if you take a warm shower or a bath before going to bed. But you have to be sure that you don’t have asthma as steam can prove harmful for you.
  4. Check the level of humidity: Humidifiers are known to soothe the problem of persistent coughing when the surrounding air is dry. But too much of moisture during the night can also make you cough. This is because dust mites, mold and other allergens thrive well in the damp air and they could conspire to make your cough even worse. So, pick up a cheap hygrometer from a hardware store and see that the humidity level stays within 40 to 50 percent.
  5. Equip yourself at night: Keep all the things from drops to water to cough syrup or anything that soothes coughing at your bedside so that you can help yourself in case you wake up in the middle of the night and start coughing.

By following these few tips every day, you can manage the night time cough and have a good night’s sleep without any interruptions. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

You have to give all home made foods and avoid bottle feed, instead give breast feed or feed with spoon apart form introducing all homemade foods one by one.

There is no need of admission in hospital only because the fever is high see for sign of dehydration, give plenty of liquids to drink. Only risk of febrile convusion is there at 8 months of age. Ask your doctor about the advice to reduce the risk. Always try to find out the cause of fever & worry about the cause not the fever. Treat the cause fever will automatically go if the cause is treated. Ask your doctor about the probable cause.

I am suffering from dry cold since last month and also from cough. So tell me what should I do to release from cough.
Dear Lybrate User, *body should be kept warm especially feet, chest, throat and head. Sweating is very helpful. The simplest way to do it is drink hot spice tea or some other hot drink and lie down on the bed .Take some warm cover like blanket and let the body sweat for 15 to 20 minutes. *a glass of warm water mixed with one tea spoon of lemon juice and one tea spoon of honey can be taken 2-3 times a day. *case of dry cough especially if it trouble is during the night, take cardamom, dry ginger, black pepper and cinnamon in equal quantity, say 10 gms. each. Take white sugar or rock candy equal to the total weight that is 40 gms. Grind them and make a fine powder. From this take half a tea spoon ( about 3 gms.) twice a day with honey or warm water after meals. *Cold drinks, ice cream, sweets, fried foods, milk products like cheese, creams, yogurt etc. should not be taken. Hot milk without fat can be taken if boiled with a piece of crushed ginger. Half tea spoon of turmeric powder is good to mix with the milk. *you should avoid tomatoes, eggplant and bananas.

Hi lybrate-user, thank you for your qjery. Generally birth weight doubles by 6 months of age and trebles by 1 year of age. For example, if a baby born with 3 kg weight, baby will be 6 kgs at 6 months and 9 kgs by 1 year of age. Give her breast feeds and continue to give complimentary feeds 3 to 4 times in a day. Make feeds calorie rich by adding a few drops of ghee or edible oil. Hope I have answered your concerns. Regards, Dr. E venkata ramana.

Silver nitrate is the usually given medication for local application in mild burns and scalds. If it's severe it needs systemic antibiotics and local bandage to avoid exposure to the environment.

After c section I have no breastfeeding first 8 days after that I have very low supply what is my problem.

Pediatrician, Kaithal
Late starting of breastfeeding is the main cause, as baby sucking is best stimulation for better breast milk output. Continue to feed. Also check your medicines, you are taking. If there is Pyridoxine in any drug, please stop it as it also decreases milk output.

Sir/madam my child is 3 months old and has taken following vaccination. Birth- bcg, opv-0, hep-b1 6 week - imovax polio, pentavac, rotarix1 10 week- imovax polio, quadrovax only. Now my concern is whether the vaccination quadrovax be given in place of pentavac as changed in 6 and 10 week. And also the doctor is saying to give rotatek in place of rotarix due to its unavailability, should it possible?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Follow your doctor's advice, it is fine. He has appropriately given pentavac at 6 wks and quadrovax at 10 weeks. Difference is because of hepatitis b. It is to be given at birth, 1, 6 months. So your doctor has given 2nd dose of hep b at 6weeks (pentavac contains hep b). At 10 weeks hep b was not given as per schedule (quadrovax doesn't contain hep b) rotateq ok if earlier one not available.

Its too early to expect so much from a child so keep calm he will overcome this problem. Almost all children have different mental abilities and memory powers. As they grow old they will develop and adapt themselves. So have patience.
