Hello, if he is just standing up and sometimes takes a step to the side, then anti-slip socks or slippers should suffice, only when he takes the first steps and will be more confident in walking and will walk more than climb, only then would I buy him ankle boots with a solid heel, certified ones being the best.

Fontanelle

08/06/20 14:35

Hello, I have a 10-month-old daughter and I found out that she no longer has almost any fontanelle on her head, is that normal? She looks fine, she is cheerful, she climbs on all fours, she’s starting to sit, she tries to rise, she burbles, her head circumference is 45 cm. But a friend’s daughter of the same age has a much larger fontanelle?

Hello, more important than the size of the fontanelle is whether the head circumference gradually increases and whether your daughter has normal psychomotor development. Which, according to your description, she does. The head circumference is normal. The head can also grow in the area of the cranial sutures, not just in the area of the fontanelle. In children, the large fontanelle closes between about 12 and 18 months of age, but each child is different and there are exceptions when the fontanelle closes sooner or later. Therefore, it is not advisable to compare your child with a friend's child. If you have any doubts, you can discuss everything with your daughter's paediatrician, or the paediatrician can write you a request for a neurological examination if, for example, the head is too small, but it seems unnecessary for your daughter, according to your description.

Hello, when teeth grow, the urine may temporarily be more aggressive, and if your daughter is in nappies for a long time, it may irritate her even more, making it become sore even faster. Therefore, if you can, change her more often, wash the bottom and genital area with water, do not use wet wipes. When your daughter is awake, leave her without a nappy on, just on a waterproof mat, so that the skin can air. Whenever you change the nappy, treat the genital area and bottom with a product designed for sores (e.g. Rybilka, Sudocream, Bepanthen, etc. - every child has its own brand that suits it best). If your daughter's skin condition does not improve or worsens, see a paediatrician.

Nephrological examination

08/06/20 14:32

Hello, I would like to ask you for advice on what to prepare for. I'm going with my 6-month-old boy for a nephrology examination and no one has really told me what to expect. He has a narrow foreskin (obstructing his urination) and during the examination we had it was written once that the L-pelvis is divided into two distinct dendrites. Please explain, I'm quite upset about this. Thank you for your answer

Hello, in a nephrology clinic, your doctor will examine your son, examine his phimosis, feel his abdomen, perform a kidney ultrasound, it is a non-invasive examination, you have nothing to fear. You will talk to the doctor about the next step, do not be afraid to ask about anything and everything. Otherwise, phimosis in a 6-month-old child is completely physiological, from this age you can gradually loosen it, preferably in a bath, once a day is enough, just by lightly pulling down towards the root of the penis, but only where it goes easily, you must not pull by force. If he has full phimosis, just pull it down 1-2 mm and hold for a while, even less. It’s difficult to describe, it would be best if it was either shown to you at your nephrology clinic, or by your son's paediatrician. Phimosis could be a problem if your son suffers from recurring urinary tract infections because bacteria can accumulate under the foreskin, then it would probably be necessary to loosen it sooner. I cannot comment on the ultrasound finding, because, according to your description, the report lacks some other necessary things. Nonetheless, a follow-up ultrasound will be performed, and if there is anything, the doctor will certainly tell you so you can agree on the next step. There is really no need to be afraid to ask and have everything you don't understand explained.

Hello, rub your son's skin with plenty of ointment, preferably several times a day, the most suitable are any natural cosmetics that do not contain preservatives, parabens and other substances, if possible without perfume, preferably in the form of oil, intended especially for children's skin, e.g. saloos, weleda, hipp , etc. It is enough to bathe every other day and always add a few drops of the oil you use for your son into the bath. When drying, simply lightly wrap your son in a cotton towel, then take it off and rub him with ointment.
