manvi bhandari At times if their activity is too much.. then they won't put on much. If she is ill more often ..then also baby won't puton. Give her more water along with solids. Try she should not cry. Every problem starts from.there..

Roopashree Siddireddy yes she is too much active. she is not ill. yes i m giving her water and food also. the thing is she wont sleep much during day always wants to play. can that be the reason?

Roopashree Siddireddy

Yes.. it can also be the reason. If baby is active and healthy...no need to worry. Just try giving more balanced nutritious food.

ok Roopashree Siddireddy. but worried abt her weight. as its low as her birth wt was also less. how can i make her gain weight

Sheeba Vijesh

hi manvi, in second half of the first year, weight gain is slower than first half...rest, i go with what Roopashree Siddireddy said..

Roopashree Siddireddy

Some kids will be lean manvi. Don't worry. Ignore if someone says your baby is lean. just say my daughter have "athletic body".. some day she will bring gold in Olympics. After 1 year, baby can eat almost all kind of food. So then you can see bit gain.
