My baby is 6 months old now, I'm sceptical to what food to start for her. Please suggest what will be safe and healthy to start.

General Physician,
My baby is 6 months old now, I'm sceptical to what food to start for her.
Please suggest what will be safe and health...
Try offering one spoonful or two spoonfuls of the following: Pureed or mashed cooked vegetables, such as carrot, parsnip, or potato. Mashed or pureed fruits, such as banana, cooked apple, pear, or mango. Gluten-free cereal, such as baby rice, sago, maize, cornmeal, or millet, mixed with your baby's usual milk. You can also try other fruits, such as peaches and avocados, and vegetables, such as butternut squash, broccoli, and cauliflower. You could try starchy vegetables, too, such as sweet potato. See our article on first tastes for recipe ideas. Once your baby is eating these fruits and vegetables happily, you can move on to other foods from the main groups: bread, rice, potatoes, and pasta dairy foods meat, fish, eggs, and beans Introducing a range of foods and tastes at this stage may reduce the chances of your baby becoming a fussy eater later on. It's important to offer your baby savoury foods as well as sweet at this stage, so she learns to like a range of flavours. Read our article on which weaning foods to introduce when.

Soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices should be consumed in a limited quantity because they are acidic in nature. Acidic food or drinks often soften the tooth material which leads to the dissolution of minerals into the tooth enamel, resulting in cavities (holes).

Hello, This is probably the right time to start weaning and it should be noted that it involves lots of experiment. Make use of this opportunity,feed her high calories homemade porridges,smoothies etc.Dark green vegetables puree can also be a healthier choice.

Yes you can take. You have to be cautious during your journey. Keep some essential medicines that children may need. Better make a kit that contains a list of drugs.

I am a new mommy of 43 days old baby girl. I breastfeed my baby daily but there is a lack of milk some times. At that time as per doctor's suggestion powder milk is giving to her. But today her stool is seen as green in colour. Is some thing wrong with her? As a new mom an in tension with this. What may be the reason for that green colour? Did I get in to a hospital soon with my baby?

It is the result of powdered milk and it should not be given in bottle. You take Lactare for increasing milk and if you do only breastfeed the baby's motion will be normal. If at all you give other milks prepare exactly as per the instruction and feed it with sepon or filler not bottle.

Speech Sound Disorders in Children!

Speech Sound Disorders in Children!

As young children learn language skills, it's normal for them to have some difficulty saying words correctly. That's part of the learning process. Their speech skills develop over time. They master certain sounds and words at each age. By age 8, most children have learned how to master all word sounds.

But some children have speech sound disorders. This means they have trouble saying certain sounds and words past the expected age. This can make it hard to understand what a child is trying to say. Speech sound disorders include articulation disorder and phonological process disorder. Articulation disorder is a problem with making certain sounds, such as" sh" phonological process disorder is a pattern of sound mistakes, such as not pronouncing certain letters.

About articulation disorder

  • Articulation disorder is the inability to form the certain word sounds correctly past a certain age. Word sounds may be dropped, added, distorted, or swapped. Keep in mind that some sound changes may be part of an accent, and are not speech errors. Signs of an articulation disorder can include:
  • Leaving off sounds from words (example: saying" coo" instead of" school")
  • Adding sounds to words (example: saying" puhlay" instead of" play")
  • Distorting sounds in words (example: saying" thith" instead of" this")
  • Swapping sounds in words (example: saying" wadio" instead of" radio")

About phonological process disorder

  • Phonological process disorder is a regular pattern of certain word speech mistakes. The mistakes may be common in young children learning speech skills, but when they persist past a certain age, it may be a disorder. Signs of a phonological process disorder can include:
  • Saying only one syllable in a word (example" bay" instead of" baby")
  • Simplifying a word by repeating two syllables (example" baba" instead of" bottle")
  • Leaving out a consonant sound (example" at" or" ba" instead of" bat")
  • Changing certain consonant sounds (example" tat" instead of" cat")

Causes of speech sound disorders

  • Often, there is no known cause for a speech sound disorder. But some speech sound errors may be caused by:
  • Injury to the brain
  • Intellectual or developmental disability
  • Problems with hearing or hearing loss, such as a history of ear infections
  • Physical abnormalities that affect speech, including cleft palate or cleft lip
  • Disorders affecting the nerves involved in speech

Diagnosing speech sound disorders

First, your child's hearing should be checked. This is to make sure that he or she isn't simply hearing words and sounds incorrectly.

If hearing loss is ruled out, you may want to contact a speech-language pathologist. This is a speech expert who evaluates and treats children who are having problems with speech-language and communication. 

By watching and listening to a child speak, the speech-language pathologist can determine whether the issues are part of normal growth and development or are a speech sound disorder. The pathologist will evaluate your child's speech and language skills, keeping in mind accents and dialect. Speech-language pathologists can also assess if a physical problem in the mouth is affecting your child's ability to speak.

Treating speech sound disorder

  • The pathologist can then recommend a therapy plan to help your child overcome his or her disorder. Speech-language pathologists work with children to help them:
  • Recognize and correct sounds that they are making wrong
  • Learn how to correctly form their problem sound
  • Practice saying certain words and making certain sounds
  • The pathologist can also give you activities and strategies to help your child practice at home.
  • If your child has a physical defect in the mouth, the pathologist can also refer your child to an ear, nose, throat doctor or orthodontist if needed.

A positive outlook

Early recognition and diagnosis of speech sound disorders can help children overcome speech problems. They can learn how to communicate well and comfortably.

I am 26 year old mother with two month old daughter. I am breastfeeding my daughter. But it seems milk is not enough for my little one. So I am giving her lactogen 1 once in a day in spoon. As she is not taking bottle feeding. Whenever I try to feed in bottle, she vomits. Please tell me the reason for refusal of bottle nipple by my baby? And please suggest any other idea?

It is unhealthy to give bottle and bottle and nipple will cause a lot of health issues and only breast milk at his age is advised. If you give formulas, give only in spoon from a cup or sipper. Checking the weight gain every month is the best way to know if the milk supply is enough

If he is active and feeding well doing all activities normal than you should not worry because some children have tendency to remain warm due to high basic metabolic rate but no problem in vitamin d deficiency body remains warm give vitamin d drops regularly. In hyperthyroidism which is rare body can be warm.

My daughter is 10 years old and she has flat foot problem what should I do can you please suggest me

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There are many causes of flatfoot, so it can be idiopathic or it can be secondary to an underlying issue like bony coalition etc. First step is to get x rays done and rule out an underlying bony issue. If it is not then we need footwear modification, intensive physical therapy and monitoring on whether there is any issue or not. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
