Q:

ma lo is only 6.5 kg from last one month..there is no weight gain I observed but he is peeing more than seven times in a day..n active too...den wat is the reason he is not gaining gradually..as ma pd suggests if he seems active theres no issue..wat u all say??..thank u



At times if there has been more than adequate weight gain in one month the baby may not gain weight in another month. At this time we look at linear growth which is gain in length as well as compare with birth weight. Baby should double birth weight by five months of age.

he was 3.4 kg at birth..now if we see 300grams is lacking...wat shld i do nw???..shld i start with top feed??..if yes wat can be given??
