NESTLE RECOMMENDS GOLDEN MORN FROM AGE 3 YEARS
My baby is 8months old but hasn't brought out any teeth hope nothing is wrong, please?
Your baby is teething when his or her first set of teeth, called primary teeth break through the gums. When does teething typically start? Teething usually begins around 6 months of age. But it is normal for teething to start at any time between 3 months and 12 months of age. By the time your child is about 3 years old, he or she will have all 20 primary teeth. The lower front teeth usually come in first. Upper front teeth usually come in 1 to 2 months after the lower front teeth.

WALKING SITTING AND POTTY TRAINING ADVICE NEEDED !!!!
  • Best Answer
I normally recommend that potty training should start at 2 years of age, when the child is ready. So please your child is still young. In some climes, potty training a child less than two years old is termed child abuse. Please don't let people's claim of potty training as early as 6 months deceive you.You have not done anything wrong. Wait till he/she is older. All the best.

A breastfeeding mom needs to eat well nourishing balanced diet. She should only avoid foods and spices that make her baby fussy or show allergic reactions. So if plantain make your baby fussy or show allergic reaction, then avoid it but if it does not you can go ahead and have it. The only thing she needs to clearly avoid is taking unprescribed medication.

  • Best Answer
COUGH SYRUP IS NOT THE TREATMENT FOR COUGH.... Kindly note that most cough are due to viral infections and will resolve on their own....There is no need to give antibiotics....Keep warm, exclusive breastfeeding and avoid any one adult or child with colds. If your child is breathing fast or having fever or breathing with difficulty, it could be pneumonia, kindly see a doctor immediately.... We Paediatricians are usually not comfortable to cough syrup being given first to infants.. I.e below 1 year..... This is because it sedates and makes it difficult for the children to breath well especially a child that has pneumonia with increased work of breathing...
Hey, doc what causes myasthenia gravis in kids?
  • Best Answer
The bodies produce antibodies that are supposed to protect against foreign body but this time they actually attack the body own tissues. In Myasthenia Gravis, this occurs at the level where the nerves and muscles communicate called Neuromuscular junction. This is what causes the weakness of some of the muscles observed in Myasthenia Gravis. Severity depends on how bad it is. There are some other mild variations of the same disease with the cause but this is the simplest explanation in a layman term I can give.

You need to take your child to the Paediatric Dentist for proper check and treatment. There are many things that can cause swollen or bleeding gums. Either the child's teeth are not properly cleaned or the child has a bacterial or viral infection e.g Herpetic stomatogingivitis, don't mind the grammar. Whatever the case may be he needs to have a proper check and treated accordingly

  • Best Answer
You certainly are not doing something right. What's her diet like? Does she take lots of water, fruits and vegetables? You need to check this and do the needful. I'm also not certain the Doctors you have met haven't said this if truly you have been to one, then please go see a Paediatrician if after trying the above and it still persists.
