Yog, walking 3 to 4 km and exercise is very helpful with reducing fatty and rich sugar diet. Alone dieting is not good for health for reducing weight. A dietitian can advise you about your diet.

My son is 15 months old. He has got 3-4 teeth. and few are about to come. When is a good time to start with brushing? Also he still isn't standing or walking on his own. But he does stand up holding sofa, chair n also walks holding them. A few doc said its OK up to 18 months. So should we wait for few months or see a physio?

The babies weight will gradually decrease in first 2-3 days. It usually does not increase. If so then consult your doctor for better examination of the baby to rule out other problems.

It is beat to give only breast milk till 4 months. But if you are giving formula, take care to give it with a spoon and not botte. Burp well after each feed, and give 30 or 60 ml per each feed and again, only with a spoon or filler and vomiting will stop.

Thumb-sucking Habit - 7 Things to Keep in Mind!

Thumb-sucking Habit - 7 Things to Keep in Mind!

The habit of thumb sucking is very common in many toddlers and babies, but often disturbs the parents to a great extent. Before dealing with this habit, it is very imperative for parents to understand the cause of this behavior. The tendency of thumb sucking is quite normal for the babies as it makes them feel comforting.

Problems that occur with thumb sucking
There are certain problems that occur if the baby develops the habit of prolonged thumb sucking. The problem that occurs mainly on sucking the thumb for longer time is with the teeth of the toddlers which may result in speech problems. Some babies get over this habit of thumb sucking on their own without any adverse after affects. However, sometimes prolonged thumb sucking may result in irritation on the skin or lead to peeling off of the skin, causing discomfort and pain to the child. There are chances that even the nails on the fingers grow in a crooked manner because of infection caused by thumb sucking.

How to get your child to leave thumb sucking habit?

  1. Parents must in any case not force their toddlers to stop this habit or get upset with them, as it can cause the toddler to develop this habit all the more.
  2. A child mainly sucks his thumb for comfort, and the habit can be stopped by diverting their mind and offering the child a soft toy or giving them a special blanket.
  3. It is better to give the toddler something to hold which makes him feel secure and comfortable.
  4. It is very important to assess whether it is a problem before stopping the habit of thumb sucking. But if the habit continues, it may affect the alignment of the teeth.
  5. It is always better to make use of ways like positive reinforcement and encouraging behavior change in your child. Parents must set up a reward system and take a note of the days the child does not suck his thumb. It is important that parents praise their child verbally and give them some reward at the end of the month.
  6. The best and simple way to quit the habit of thumb sucking is to cover the thumb with a thumb guard or mittens.
  7. The best way to help your child quit the habit would be to distract him or her and involve them in activities that would require the use of both the hands. Parents can keep their child busy by giving them puzzles or blocks to play. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

My daughter has persistent cough sometimes please prescribe some antibiotic to cure it she is 4years old.

Pediatrician, Pune
The cause for her persistent cough needs to be identified, antibiotics alone are not going to help, get her evaluated by a pediatrician.

Nusobee is good. But my advice is to stop bottle feeding and give only breast milk. But if you still give the formula avoid bottle and feed with spoon.

CRP is a diagnostic aid to physicians, along with clinical examination it helps to come to a diagnosis. Isolated finding of blood tests is really of no use. Abnormal finding may at the most suggest there may be some underlying cause. Very high level of CRP is found in rheumatic illnesses. If febrile for long time it is worth while to rule out Kawasaki disease, but it is better to leave it to professional treating the child and avoid unnecessary parental anxiety.
