Q:

Hi
I'm lil concerned about my baby's health. This month he gained only 200 gms. He is not taking anything other than bm. I hv tried many things like carrot peas potato papaya banana Apple chiku semolina rice pulse water.. He hardly takes 1-2 spoon.; I also want to give him formula milk too but he is not liking it's taste I think. Tried lactogene nanpro both. What should I do pls suggest.

Hi mommy
Changing food does not help but what you must follow is the three day thumb rule.
Every food that u chose to feed has to be offered to the baby for three days. Its the baby's behaviour to resist but you need patience to feed.
Keep offering different colours,textures,fries too.
Some intresting finger food ,then let the baby make a mess; give the food to them let them feel,touch,mess it helps them to eat better.

Hey I feel it’s normal if the baby has not lost any weight. Sometimes they might not feel like eating, or the food that generates energy gets divided into various parts like height, head, activity, so might not gain much weight. But overall the child is playful and active nothing to worry. Do not force feed the child and just keep trying.
