I have just become father of a baby girl.

But unfortunately we are experiencing Abnormal symptoms with my baby

Below are the symptoms
1. She cries a lot even after breast feeding and Formula food(NAN1)
2. She is not moving her legs while she is good mood.
3. She passes urine more than 20times and stool 10times a day.
4. Head size is gradually increasing more than the body size.
5. Fingers are getting stiff.
6. Developing black spots at the joints.

Please help me what could be the possible diagnosis for this.

I am very much worried about my baby girl.

We do not have any genetics problem.

Appreciate a early reply.

Regards
Dilip

  • I should think you should take her in to a doctor if you are worried about the baby. It could be that the mother's breast milk is not nutritious enough and that mother should eat a better variety of food and/or mother may have a problem like thyroid problem. It's also possible that whatever else you are giving her is causing a reaction and you may want to stop the supplement and see how she does just on breast milk. Breast fed children have more bowel movements each day. Have a doctor monitor her growth; you will have to take her for an exam. I would not put her on formula and I would also have mother checked for any thyroid problem.

That's a strange way to put it.Go see a doctor for the thyroid thing; they'll basically take the mum's blood and test if for deficiencies and abnormalities. If the mom has hypothyroidism, she would need to take pills her entire life to regulate it, or suffer greatly later. Both my mother and I have it and my mum has ovary pain now; I have it and it causes a lot of problems for me, even at 17.A baby born to an untreated, "hypothyroidic" mother is more likely to have abnormalities at birth, development problems, and/or a low IQ. There's also a higher chance of still birth and miscarriage of the mother is left untreated during and after the pregnancy.You should get tested because hypothyroidism causes a lot of problems for the person diagnosed with it as well, such as:- Constant sweating- Cold feet / hands- A body with odd proportions- Easy to gain weight- Difficult / Abnormal pregnancies- Abnormal menstrual cycles- Pain in the reproductive areas / organsetc. etc.Getting it treated fast is the best thing :| but that is, only if your partner is diagnosed with this disease.

  • dilip,As a mother who has lost 2 children I can sympathize with you. I would take your child to a dr, preferably a pediatrician. There are numerous metabolic disorders out there that are treatable and any pain your child endures is minimal compared with the pain they are probably in now. A larger head that normal can be fluid and fluid equals pressure and that is painful. Children manage pain better than adults. My daughter saw 2 different drs before her heart condition was diagnosed. So if one dr tells you nothing is wrong go see another one. Ask to see a specialist. Start with a geneticist. You and your wife may not have genetic disorders however sometimes when your genes combine it can create one. Both your children the one who passed away and this one have had the same symptoms this is genetic which can just mean it is passed from the parents. The genetic dr can run some test mostly blood work maybe some e-rays for the stiffness and also the large head possibly a ct scan. For a baby they do give a mild drinkable sedative. You are in charge of your daughter. Ask if they can take blood then. This will alleviate any pain. If you are near a Children s hospital this would be best. They do everything there and also they can speak with colleagues. This could be very treatable and the sooner the better. Hope this helps U out.Ames
