Pediatrics/weight is less


Hello Doctor, I have a daughter.She is 2 year old.Her weight is 11.5kg.Her height is proper nd she is active also.She is very fussy about food. she jst vomits wen i give et dalia,sheera,veg soups etc.Right now after much pain she has rice wid ghee nd cerelac nd a bit of milk twice a day.She also has finger sucking habit bt she takes it only wen bore or sleepy. My in-laws say dat if its nt stop den she will need braces in future. i give her dexorange 10ml once a day. My family doctor say she is under weight.Please help me with my problems.

AVOID USING FOMITES (but i wont advice against it if your doctor has adviced it to you for some reason).follow the advice below:
best way to avoid thumbsucking is by talking to child often to avoid it (enforcing not forcing). observe the situatiosn when he sucks the thumb, commonly its lonelyness, hunger, sleep or frustration. tackle these issues. prepare a small story of a good boy who was never thumbsucking and how his teeth get damaged due to thumbsucking , and tell the story for almost 10 days or till he starts telling the same story. avoid bottle feeding. remove thumb from mouth as soon as he sleeps. you will see effect in 15 days.
fussiness may be related to constipation. please read below""></a>
