Hi Manjula. can you post a question to the expert on the main home page of the app. This is a comment to another mom's post. All the best!

Hi Isha! As long as the Dr says baby is healthy then do not worry. My policy is to feed healthy and do not bother about opinions. All the best

very true...My cousins daughter use to be so so thin.. everyone from in-laws side use to tell her to feed baby every now n then...after loads of check up medications later doctors gave inference that it is her genetic..so dnt worry give deaf ears to these people... follow your Pediatricians instructions that's it.Feed as per his instructions...gone are the days the way our mommies use to feed us...these are new generation kiddos very cautiously we need to deal with them.

All the best!

Hi Isha, don't worry about what others say or think.
I have 3 kid's and my youngest was and is my smallest child and he is 2yo.
Like you I'd stress over his lack of growth and weight gain for quite sometime but now he is a big boy.
He has gone from a size O to a size 3-4 clothing practically overnight.
I've also learnt that boys and girls develop differently.
Just relax and let your little prince grow and develop into the little person he is yet to become!

Hi Isha, don't worry people talk about others don't pay attention to them you try making page for your kid n feed. he will gain weight slowly

your baby's birth weight *3 should be the correct weight in one year

thnks mommies nd experts for ur advice..

as far as baby is healthy n active don't worry about weight or others.maintain healthy food diet.height weight is hereditary too

Harneet (clanpedia)

chubby does not mean healthy. a chubby baby is a fat baby, which may or may not be normal. also weight gain depends on genetics. ideally baby should double birth weight by 6 months and triple birth weight by 1 year

after 6 month baby .use suji apple upma baba kar do. week mein ek baar egg yolk do weight put on ho jayega

Saima Shaikh

it the time ur baby is active , you need not worry. even my baby has a very less weight but he is very very active. don't listen to what people say about ur baby, u know ur baby better.

Disha Bhandari

Hi Ishu,
My 6.5 month old baby weighs 6.4 kgs inspite of being born at the birth weight of 3.4 kgs. Everyone who sees her is shocked at how 'lean' she looks. I, for one, see her day in and day out. I see her reaching milestones earlier than her contemporaries and I see her active and responsive all the time. I don't believe this is a race of the babies but trust your instinct rather than paying heed to what others have to say about 'your' baby.
