My one and a half month old daughter did not sleep from night 2am to morning 12pm yesterday. This is the second time she is doing this. Is this normal? I am very much worried?

This symptom if persistent for a long time will require treatment. In the meanwhile you try to observe her and try to find the cause and other factors which causes sleeplessness. In homoeopathy there are many good remedy which are helpful for such cases. As homoeopathic medicines are safer, you can opt for it.

All About Depression in Children

Depression in children is not a very uncommon phenomenon. But if the feeling of sadness persists over a period of time with little or no change to their behavior, then it can be seen as a symptom of depression. Children who are suffering from depression need immediate and utmost care as negligence may cause severe long term effects on the child. Read on to find more about them.

Symptoms:
Symptoms that indicate childhood depression vary. Some of the different symptoms which indicate depression are:

  1. Social withdrawal
  2. Irritability
  3. Feeling of worthlessness
  4. Difficulty in concentrating
  5. Reduced ability to function during events
  6. Continuous feelings of sadness
  7. Physical complaints

Causes:

  1. Depression in children can be caused due to the combination of a multitude of reasons.
  2. Children from a family history of depression are more likely to be suffering from depression.
  3. Similarly if the parents suffer from depression then it is more than likely that the child will also suffer from depression.
  4. Children from conflicted families or children and teens who are prone to substance or alcohol abuse can suffer from depression.
  5. Reasons such as physical health, environment, genetic vulnerability or biochemical disturbance can lead to depression.

Treatment:
The treatment process of depression in children is similar to that of adults and can be treated with psychotherapy and medication. If your child is depressed consult a general physician who after his or her diagnosis may refer you to a psychiatrist. The medical specialist will recommend psychotherapy.

In some instances, a child suffering from depression maybe be suicidal. Parents are advised to be vigilant and observe certain behavioral changes that the child may have adapted to or suddenly switched to.
Some of the signs are mentioned below:

  1. Changes in eating, sleeping or activities
  2. Isolating oneself even from family
  3. Talking of suicide, feeling helpless or hopeless
  4. Increased risk taking behavior
  5. Substance abuse
  6. Giving away possessions

Sessions at first and then opt for antidepressant medication if no significant progress is seen. The best results often result from a combination of prescribed medication along with multiple sessions of psychotherapy.

Hi, you need to eat balanced diet. You eat what you normally eat spicy/ non spicy whatever suits you. You just need to increase your diet for increased demand during breast feeding. So add one meal and take snacks in between. Take increased amount of protein in form of egg (best), non veg food or add pulses, soyabeen in your diet. You need 300kcal and 25gm protein extra. Keep yourself hydrated with 3-4 litres of fluid daily. I had heard some senior doctor saying, when you give cow's milk to baby do you ever see what cow eats. So don't worry about your food passing to baby. Baby will take only milk. Just keep yourself healthy and happy.

No it is not a problem. Every child is an individual and they have their own rate for development. Better wait and let him catch up.

Lybrate-user nice to hear from apapa. Athree year old child caan have every thing you eat in your family in the morning you can cive his poha, idli, or paronthi and curd. If you have eggs then it could beegg with roti or with whole wheat bread. Around 11o'clock give some fruit in the lunch depending wether you take rice or chapatiwhater its fine along with some vegetable and daal. Add some salad also in the evening give him milk and egg or some home made snack at night also the child should eat from family pot. 1to1 111111111/2 chapati at each meal will suffice you can add milk in the morning hope this helps you. Any querry you are welcome.

One month old baby crying means most likely due to hunger only. Growing children require more milk day by day. In case of mother milk check whether mother milk is sufficient or not. If the baby is crying inspite of taking breast feeds, mother milk may not be sufficient, can try top feeds. Some babies will have colic pain (pain abdomen. You can try colimex drops to get relief from colic pain.

Your son may have a scalp seborrhea or fungal infection if there is no hair in patches. Treatment with anti seborrhea shampoo might help. Along with that a nourishing diet and vitamin supplements.
