Q:

Hello! My boy will be 3 months this June 2 (dob 2 March ) he he only 4.5 kg ..How can I increase his weight . is he under weight ?

Hi Rosemary,

Hearty congrats for the little bundle of joy.

At 3 months, you should only be breastfeeding. Check with your pediatrician for the right frequency. If your child has been feeding well, don't worry about weight. Your baby will catch up over time!

Best regards

if his birth weight was 2 kg than this is OK...otherwise undrwt..

yesterday doc said he is underweight...

Bakul Parekh

what was the birth weight ?

BabyChakra Expert

Hi Rosemary,

Ideally if the child is breastfeeding well upto 6 months, there shouldn't be much to worry. However, if you feel he isn't feeding well enough, reach out to either your pediatrician or a lactation expert, who can consult you personally.

Thanks

if birth wt is 3.25 kg than wt at 3 months should be 5.5 kg to 5.75 kg...so 4.5 kg is definitely less...consult your pediatrician for the reason

pedic said wait n check if increases in two weeks. she finds no other reason , rest Everything is fine . any other suggestion ?

Rosemary John

is it something that I am not eating well . what all should I have ?

Bakul Parekh

you can eat everything...more important is ...be happy and relaxed...think positive ..no negative thoughts...

hey rosmary....I understand being mothers we r most of the time worried about our kids but personal experience. ...worry is the enemy for our kids. ...if we stay positive about our kids they r happy n healthy....breastfeed for 6 months and set routine for food after 6 month....my daughter will b 3 months on 11th...her pediatric is happy with her growth....infant should not pee too much....too much peeing is a sign that they r taking more watery milk from mom....u should feed them 40 min from one breast....don't change the breast in one feed.....see if this is the issue
