My grandson aged nine weeks old has not passed stool since ten days. He is breast fead, normal and weighed 5 kgs. He is quite normal active and has no other problems. Please let me know what to do for making him to pass stool.

General Physician,
If he otherwise active there is no danger and breastfed babies may not pass motion for a week or more which is not problem. Ut if you are scared you can out a pediatric Dulcolax suppository in the anus and it will help pass motion. If this is a regular feature it will be advisable to do a thyroid screening by doing TSH test.

All symptoms are pointing towards viral infection, so you have maintain hydration by giving milk, kanji water, tender coconut water or plain water with ors. For fever give paracetamol as per your doctor's advised dose. Once fever comes down he will start eating meanwhile look for danger signs and report immediately to pediatrician. Danger signs are 1) no urine for more than 6 hours. 2) vomiting continues 3) blood in motion. 4) dull baby 5) high irregular fever 6) irritable, drowsy.

Dandruff is common due to excessive usage of oil especially in the winter months. Restrict the usage of oil & use k z shampoo for head bath twice a week.

Hi lybrate-user, taking food for one doesn't matter if you are eating at least salads and fruits on other time. Body needs carbs, proteins as per your daily routine. If the daily activity is more and food intake is low it may create weakness and in long term may have bigger health issues. So keep track of your intake and activities along with good water intake and ample sleep. Feel free to ask more. Thanks.

Hi doctor! I have a question regarding pentaxim (dpat) vs pentavac (easy 5 or dpt) vaccine. My baby is 3 month and second dose of this vaccine is due.

Pentaxim is banned in India and other countries. The WHO has advised all countries to stop giving this vaccine. Some recent studies proved that the Pertusis vaccine included in the Pentaxim does not work. Pediatricians know about this issue but some continue giving. It is wise though for us mom to be aware of it. I think you should go for the painful ones. Its ok if your baby will suffer fever and pain for couple of days if that means there is no chance of him getting any of those diseases later on in life. But then again, it is your choice. Just choose what is best for your baby. :) You can switch over and there is no problem

Probably child is not eating enough solids & being on milk. A 3 year old child should be able to eat with parents. In addtion insufficient water intake and deferring urge to defecate due to any cause adds up to the problem. Any way start giving semisolids/ solid diet instead of milk every 3 hours with plenty of water in between. For instant relief dulcolax suppositary per anal can be given.

You have to train your baby to accept solid food. Children are not born to take solid food by default. Start with liquids-semi solids-solids, this way baby will learn taking food like an adult.

We have six months old baby. Currently he is at my in-laws' place with my wife. I am planning to bring my family to Bangalore. We have a question regarding buffalo milk feeding. As we get the milk from a dairy here, is it ok to feed him this milk. My wife's milk production is not much, please advise on what things to take care regarding feeding our baby. Thanks in advance.

It is OK. As for choosing between cow’s milk and buffalo milk, cow’s milk is a better option to start with, as buffalo milk is rich in fat and difficult to digest. Indigestion can lead to diarrhea. While introducing milk, start by adding a few teaspoons of the pasteurized milk to soups, halwa and some room-temperature curd. If he/she tolerates this well, then over time the quantity can be increased with careful monitoring. When introducing buffalo milk, mothers must first boil the milk, let it cool and then remove the layer of cream before feeding the baby.

I would suggest you to take him to pediatrician and make sure everything is okay after the fall. This will also help you relax and not worry unnecessarily. If he is okay yoh will be at ease and if he needs any medical attention doctor will be able to help. Hope this helps wishing best for both you and your baby.

What method i have to follow for he will taken solid food. Which type of food have to follow. Please suggest.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Faridabad
If his weight at two and half years is 10 kg and height 94cm then he is thin but long. But only on milk now is not good. Stop bottle and milk all together. Give him soft food to eat or else let him be hungry and nothing in between. You may give him milk based food example kheer,curd,burfi. Basic principal has already been elaboratated earlier. He must be iron deficient, please him some iron supplement example sup hemsi 5ml once a day for hundred days.

Hello there, Wheezing is a common symptom in children with cold. But it should be evaluated by a Pediatrician. Depending on clinical condition and history, your child may require further oral medications or nebulizations. Keep nasal passage clear and use normal saline nasal drops liberally. Keep baby well hydrated.

Give exclusive breastfeeding for six months. After that start giving her home food, mashed and made thin so that child can swallow. I prefer home food over commercially available weaning foods.

Raising your Children with High Self Esteem

Post Graduate Diploma in Pyschology

Raising your Children with High Self Esteem

Building your child’s confidence and self image is an important part of raising a child. Self image can be defined as a child’s view of himself and his strengths. If a child is comfortable with his self image, he will have confidence in himself. A foundation of self confidence is key to a child’s success in his adult life. In their childhood years, a parent is the main source of building a child’s self worth or self confidence. Here are a few ways you can develop your child’s self confidence.

1. Avoid negative self talk: Children learn by watching their parents. Hearing parents berate themselves will make children do the same. Talking badly about yourself can reinforce a low self esteem. Hence avoid talking negatively about yourself and stop your child from doing it as well. If your child talks negatively about himself, give him evidence to prove the opposite or give them meaningful compliments. Also avoid calling your child names to shame him as these are likely to stay ingrained in his mind.

2. Celebrate uniqueness: Don’t make your child feel like he has to live up to the standards set by siblings or peers. Further, do not pressurize them to fulfill your dreams. Recognize your child’s strengths and celebrate his unique abilities. Help them develop their talents and set their own standards for themselves.

3. Let your child make decisions: Empower your child by allowing them to make decisions about simple things like what game to play or what to eat for dinner. Make them feel that their views are valued and thus teach them to be an active member of the family.

4. Let them work things out for themselves: Spoon feeding your child makes things easier at the time, but in the long run can have a negative effect on their self confidence. Be patient and let your child try and do things for himself. As he meets and overcomes new challenges, his confidence will grow. Give your child age appropriate chores to do around the house. This helps build responsibility and a feeling of competency.

5. Be genuine about your praise: Children are highly intuitive and can tell the difference between sincere praise and something being said merely for the sake of it. For example, if your child has made a drawing, instead of simply telling your child that he is an artist in the making be more specific and praise his choice or colours or ability of colouring within the lines.
