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.

She is 8 years old child and her growth is not normal (3" 9 inch)and she is having unwanted hairs on skin. please suggest what we can do for it.

Give her protein rich nutritious diet and milk or milk products, vegetables, fruits, nuts and dry fruits of her choice. Give vitamin d 60, 000 units once in a month and calcium tab daily. Unwanted hair may be checked by either pediatrician or endocrinologist.

If the nipple does not latch on to the baby's mouth the nipple may be retracted and sipple shield can be kept and feed the baby. Milk will form in due course and lactare capsules help increase milk.

This is for child 4 year old. Studies in Jr. Kg. I feel that my child has difficulty in clarity of speech and speaking in complete sentences. He requires language development. He communicates his needs and is quite good with written work in academics but story telling, language related narration is difficult. Also he communicates only in English. Though he understands our mother tongue Malayalam and Hindi, he communicates back only in English. Is there any way you can help him develop language skills. FYI he was premature 8th month baby, but had all his milestones correctly. His birth weight was 1.8 kg. He is very active and playful child.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. I don't see any problems in your child. If he is able to communicate, written work in academics etc, then the other aspects should be due to lack of proper training. I suggest you to consult a psychologist for assessment of learning disability areas including language ability. I too am from Kerala and I wish to speak to you as well as your child. You can contact me through Lybrate. Take care.

Why not continuing with exclusive breast milk, what was the need to change the milk, mother' s milk is the best for the baby, the baby requires nothing but the best.

You need to consult your gynaecologist who would prescribe you medication to stop production of milk.

Give more fibres in daily diet and plenty of water in a day. Constipation is easy to treat with fibre and green vegetables in diet in raw form rather then cooked form. Along with this you need medicines after showing to pediatrician, of course chronic constipation should be ruled out with thyroid problems for safer sake, and second condition causing the same is hirshprung's disease.

Have patience, some kids speak a little late. Just continue to talk to him with clear pronuncian. Avoid all types of nick names, slangs & mimicking child speech.

My baby is 4 month old and as he rolling due to pressure on stomach he is vomiting a lot and his toilet is yellowish color proper but doing 3 to 4 times a day little little. Here he is drinking and then rolling and then vomiting. He is not vomiting milk but it's like dahi. Dr. he suggested perinorm 8 drops thrice a day is it safe to give him perinorm as I have read a lot of side effect of perinorm. If not safe then kindly suggest me the substitute for d same.

This is a normal reflux. Curd like little regurgitation is common while stomach is being pressed. So nothing to worry. We don't prefer perinorm unless there is severe vomits. The signs you mentioned is just a regurgitation. That does not warrant therapy. Do proper burping post feeds. Keep head up position and demoralized prone position for long. Regards.

Whenever you describe a child's disease her weight is a must to suggest dosage of medicines. If you can buy medicines there without your gp's prescription you give her emeset (ondansetron) syrup 205 ml and inform me. If she still feeds from bottle you must stop bottle and feed her with glass or cup, no matter how much you sterilise the bottle/

5 practical ways to boost your child's immunity

Children are as vulnerable as they are adorable. Their immune system is not as strong as that of adults, so they are easy victims to environment borne diseases like cold, cough, influenzas and other infections. Here are 5 practical and easy ways in which you can boost your child's immunity and make sure that your role as a parent is sufficiently fulfilled.

1. Decide judiciously what he is supposed to eat and drink

Your child's daily diet must contain a lot of fruits, vegetables, juices, organic foods and proteins. Healthy fats like butter, pastured eggs, coconut etc. Are also essential as they help in absorbing important vitamins like vitamins a, d, e, k and others. Even your child's water intake should be at an optimal level. Processed food and excessive sugar intake should be avoided as they add to your child's calorie count.

2. Get your child to exercise

Regular exercise is a must. It may include running, swimming, jumping or simply strolling. Screen time should be limited as much as possible as those video games and i-pads are robbing your child of his immunity. Make sure your child spends a few hours outside in the sun so as to absorb vitamin d that is obtained from sunlight, for his immunity.

3. Ensure a clean and hygienic environment for your child

You must make sure that that your child learns to keep himself clean. Teach him to wash his hands whenever necessary and tell him not to sneeze and cough in a way that spreads germs. Maintain a clean and healthy environment in and around your home but make sure that you don't shoo away the good bacteria that prevent diseases.

4. Cut down the stress levels of your child

It is very important for you to recognise and eliminate stress from your child's life to ensure immunity for him. Do not force your will upon your child and let him follow his heart. Help him relax if he is stressed and talk to him patiently about things that are worrying him. Maintain a healthy and loving environment in your family to help your child grow.

5. Ensure you child gets adequate rest

Make sure that your child gets adequate amount of comfortable sleep. It is important for you to make your child understand the benefits of sleeping early. This not only increases his/her immunity but also helps him/her to stay attentive and focussed.
