My 3 years old baby always keep coughing. We do not give him chilled drinks or candies chocolate etc. Bt sometimes if he eats only candy he starts coughing and sometimes vomit also. Homeopathic treatment is given to him for skull fracture.

It seems your kid is having allergic cough so it's better to avoid any thing with artificial colours, flavours. All those candies have colours and avoid jelly/jelly filled chocolates. For any fracture in kid treatment is positioning of bone in proper place so new new bone is formed in continuity.

Hi my six months baby girl is crying very much. I have visited a doctor and he said that the baby is taking air during breast feeding. Is it true? what should we do during breastfeeding to avoid it?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
What is weight? is she growing normally in spite of crying? if yes then, supporting the child by taking in lap, moving around by taking him on shoulder is needed. Some babies do cry for no reasons, they need feeling of security, tactile comforting, talking to him. It is passing phase and not going to last long. Meanwhile you can try giving colimex drops as and when required.

Dyslexia - 9 Signs That Your Kid is Suffering from it!

Dyslexia - 9 Signs That Your Kid is Suffering from it!

Raising a child with dyslexia can stir up a lot of emotions. You may look ahead and wonder if this learning issue will affect your child's future. But dyslexia is not a prediction of failure. Dyslexia is quite common, and many successful individuals have dyslexia.

Research has proven that there are different ways of teaching that can help people with dyslexia succeed. There's a lot you can do as a parent too.

What are the symptoms of dyslexia?

Because dyslexia affects some people more severely than others, your child's symptoms may look different from those in another child. Some kids with dyslexia have trouble with reading and spelling. Others may struggle to write or to tell left from right.

Dyslexia can also make it difficult for people to express themselves clearly. It can be hard for them to structure their thoughts during conversation. They may have trouble finding the right words to say.

Others struggle to understand what they're hearing. This is especially true when someone uses nonliteral language such as jokes and sarcasm.

The signs you see may also look different at various ages. Some of the warning signs for dyslexia, such as a speech delay, appear before a child reaches kindergarten. More often, though, dyslexia is identified in grade school. As schoolwork gets more demanding, trouble processing language becomes more apparent.

Here are some signs to look out for:

  1. Warning Signs in Preschool or Kindergarten
  2. Has trouble recognizing the letters of the alphabet
  3. Struggles to match letters to sounds, such as not knowing what sounds b or h make
  4. Has difficulty blending sounds into words, such as connecting C-H-A-T to the word chat
  5. Struggles to pronounce words correctly, such as saying 'mawn lower' instead of 'lawn mower'
  6. Has difficulty learning new words

  3. Has trouble remembering facts and numbers

  6. Has trouble learning new skills and relies heavily on memorization
  7. Gets tripped up by word problems in math

  4. Has difficulty organizing and managing time
  5. Struggles to summarize a story

What can be done at home for dyslexia?

Helping your child with dyslexia can be a challenge, particularly if you're never been confident in your own reading and writing skills. But you don't have to be an expert to help work on certain skills or strengthen your child's self-esteem.

Keep in mind that kids (and families) are all different, so not all options will work for you. Don't panic if the first strategies you try aren't effective. You may need to try several approaches to find what works best for your child. Here are some things you can try at home:

  • Read out loud every day
  • Tap into your child's interests
  • Use audiobooks
  • Look for apps and other high-tech help
  • Focus on effort, not outcome
  • Make your home reader-friendly
  • Boost confidence

What can make the journey easier?

Dyslexia can present challenges for your child and for you. But with the proper support, almost all people with dyslexia can become accurate readers. Your involvement will help tremendously.

Wherever you are in your journey, whether you're just starting out or are well on your way, this site can help you find more ways to support your child. Here are a few things that can help make the journey easier:

  • Connect with other parents. Remember that you're not alone. Use our safe online community to find parents like you.
  • Get behavior advice. Parenting Coach offers expert-approved strategies on a variety of issues that can affect children with dyslexia, including trouble with time management, anxiety and fear, frustration and low self-esteem.
  • Build a support plan. Come up with a game plan and anticipate what lies ahead.

Understanding dyslexia and looking for ways to help your child is an important first step. There's a lot you can do just don't feel you have to do everything all at once. Pace yourself. If you try a bunch of strategies at the same time, it might be hard to figure out which ones are working. And do your best to stay positive. Your love and support can make a big difference in your child's life. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a neurologist and ask a free question.

My child is hyperactive. What should l do? which food is good for him? what is the restoration? help me please.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd) is one of the most common childhood disorders and can continue through adolescence and adulthood. Symptoms include difficulty staying focused and paying attention, difficulty controlling behavior, and hyperactivity (overactivity). Adhd has three subtypes: are the behaviors excessive and long-term, and do they affect all aspects of the child's life? do they happen more often in this child compared with the child's peers? are the behaviors a continuous problem or a response to a temporary situation? do the behaviors occur in several settings or only in one place, such as the playground, classroom, or home? the most common type of medication used for treating adhd is called a" stimulant" although it may seem unusual to treat adhd with a medication considered a stimulant, it actually has a calming effect on children with adhd. Many types of stimulant medications are available. A few other adhd medications are non-stimulants and work differently than stimulants. For many children, adhd medications reduce hyperactivity and impulsivity and improve their ability to focus, work, and learn. Medication also may improve physical coordination. You can ask me privately for any further advice.

Let other children play with baby. More and more they listen more and more they speak. Refer Dr. Glenn doman article on web. It would be very helpful to you. Regards.

Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), also called von Recklinghausen's disease, is a rare genetic disorder characterized by the development of multiple noncancerous (benign) tumors of nerves and skin (neurofibromas) and areas of abnormally decreased or increased coloration (hypo- or hyperpigmentation) of the skin. Areas of abnormal pigmentation typically include pale tan or light brown discolorations (cafe-au-lait spots) on the skin of the trunk and other regions as well as freckling, particularly under the arms (axillary) and in the groin (inguinal) area. Such abnormalities of skin pigmentation are often evident by one year of age and tend to increase in size and number over time. At birth or early childhood, affected individuals may have relatively large benign tumors that consist of bundles of nerves (plexiform neurofibromas). Individuals with NF1 may also develop benign tumor-like nodules of the colored regions of the eyes (Lisch nodules) or tumors of the optic nerves (second cranial nerves), which transmit nerve impulses from the innermost, nerve-rich membrane of the eyes (retinas) to the brain. People with neurofibromatosis type 1 may undergo surgery to remove particularly troublesome tumors. Physical therapy may be beneficial for some people. A variety of orthopedic devices may help to improve mobility in some cases. Other treatment is symptomatic and supportive. Genetic counseling will be of benefit for people with neurofibromatosis type 1 and their families.

Baby Feeding Routine

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician,
Baby Feeding Routine
Complementary feeding

Complementary feeding / weaning should be started after 150 days of life.

Its better to start home prepared semi solids first. If you are not confident in preparing food initially you can give cerelac rice / cerelac wheat/ nestum rice etc.

Add a new food item only after trial of 3 days. I mean don't give new food everyday. Wait for any intolerance to a particular food.

Fruit juices orange, apple can be prepared at home and can be given from 7 months.

Mashed potato can be given by 7-8 months.

Egg can be give by 8-9 months. Give egg yolk initially and the egg white later.
