hi all ,

m bit worried abt my baby ,as he completed 7 mnth nd his wght on lower side ,what shud I do.

hi! A lot of moms have the same worry. My child was and is also thin. But this isn't a bad thing. As long as Dr says all is fine, don't worry. Kids weight will fluctuate especially when diets change and when introduced to more types of food. Aim for healthy diet. All the very best. Do check out our recipe section.

thnks ,bt at birth he was on lower side ,nd dnt knw wat food will help

k will check recipe ...

in the first year after birth, a child ideally gains 3 times his birth weight. now there is no maths on how much weight he gains evey month. it varies. if your kid is active, doesn't fall ill frequently, achieving his milestones .... don't bother too much.

thnk u ,for motivational comment

if your child physically active then being lean is not a problem. don't worry

If you have breastfed up to 6 months atleast, nothing to worry. If you are breastfeeding now, even better! Start weaning with small portions of mashed fruits and boiled and pureed veggies. Focus on nutrition and his development milestones, weight will grow over time. If your baby is active (look for sensory activities, s/he will have appetite too).
