My son DOB is 30/06/2011. At the time of birth he weighed 3.0 kg. And after 01 year now he weighs 7.2 kg. I think he is underweight. He only takes mother milk and hesitates to take rice or other eatables. Tell me how he can gain weight and make him eat other eatables.
of course he is underweight. Normally the baby's weight should be three times the birth weight after 1 year. There is baby growth chart available on parentree upto 36 months which displays the results for your kid once you enter height and weight. U can use that.
After 1 year baby should start eating other stuff and mother milk is not enought. U need to try and try till u suceed. U can start with liquid if he is not willing to take solid food for eg. rice smashed in mixed and dal added to it, chapati smashed in mixed and milk,sugar added to it. Plus u need to give him vegetable soup daily and some fruits/juices extracted at home.
make him sit with u for dineer and given him everything u eat in a plate. let him explore whatever he wants to eat. u need to develop his taste at this age only. Giving everything in plast will show u his preference.
TC and all the best.
Thank you for your suggestions. Ya we have started giving him daily - IDLi with honey as breakfast, smashed rice mixed with dal afternoon, evening one biscuit or any piece of fruit and again smashed rice with dal during night since 10 days. he takes mother milk thrice in a day and during night when he wakes up. Will it be sufficient to follow or have to change. pls let us know.
good u have already started solid stuff. try to give chapati for one serving preferably in the breakfast, smashed in mixer and hot milk, sugar added to it. U can also start variety of food so that he doesn't get bored with the same stuff. for eg. rava soji or upma made little liquid, khichadi (rice mixed with moong dal). Vegetables are must. if he is not eating, give him vegetable soup (mixed veg boiled in cooker, smashed in mixer, a little pepper or jeera powder added to it. start milk with complan. it gives the best result in terms of weight as well as height. and compulsory one banana a day either in the moring or evening. this will help to increase his weight.
Thank you. We will try them.
