Baby Health Problems

  • Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD): This is a developmental and neurobehavioral disorder in kids. This is evident in kids who are younger, generally before they turn seven.
  • Proteinuria: Too much of serum protein in the urine can cause proteinuria. This generally happens if the child has an infection in the kidneys, suffers from kidney damage, or if the kidneys are malfunctioning.
  • Stool soiling: This could be an inborn health problem that the child suffers from and the child involuntarily stains his underwear.
  • Tics And Tourette's Syndrome: In this child does not have control over tics. Tics are rapid movements or sounds that the child makes involuntarily. In this children clear their throat or blink involuntarily.
  • Urinary Reflux: In this the urine flows in a reverse manner – from the bladder back into the kidneys. This can further lead to urinary tract infection.
  • Urinary Tract Infection (UTI): The urethra, bladder and kidneys form the urinary tract. A burning sensation while urinating, fever, diarrhea, vomiting, and frequent urination are the symptoms of UTI.
  • Weight: sometimes some babies and children do not put on weight even if they are being fed well.

    This worries parents and they feel that maybe the child is not well. We suggest you speak to a doctor if this happens. While it could be just the way the child is, in some cases, it could also be due to some health problem.
  • Pre-birth: If the baby has some problem, then pre-natal tests can often detect the birth defects. Tests are done to detect problems like cleft lip, exposed bowel, congenital heart disease, Down syndrome, and spina bifida. Some birth defects cannot be discovered till the baby is born.
  • Breathing problems because of immature lungs is another health problem.
  • Jaundice is another common health problem that affects newborn babies.

Baby Health Remedies

  • When the baby is ill and in hospital, it is important for the parents to keep themselves well by eating nutritious food and exercising well. We’re saying this because the general tendency is to get so consumed with worry that you as a parent, stop thinking of yourself.
  • Also, you will want to speak with the doctor about your baby’s health problem. Ask the physician about the details of your child’s illness and the treatment plan.
  • Find support groups online and in person for sharing information and tips.
