12-month-old Child Weighs 7.2 Kg And Is Unclear?
Afternoon, I have a toddler. Birth weight 2.7 with a length of 49cm. But after 8 months of age, his weight remained 7.2 kg. now 12 months old. The condition is running smoothly, but it’s not clear yet. Only AAA and Tak … Is this normal? For consumption, I will still give the team rice and side dishes like adults.
Good afternoon Uliex, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
Weight gain that is difficult to rise in children can be caused by several conditions such as:
Infection in the body such as intestinal worms or tuberculosis
Frequent diarrhea / vomiting
When compared with the growth charts released by WHO, your child's weight is indeed below the green line (both if your child is a girl or a boy) which means that your child's weight is less but not yet reached malnutrition.
As for the ability to speak, children aged 1 year are indeed not able to speak clearly and are only able to say 2-3 words, but can already answer nonverbally correctly. 1 year olds also begin to like to imitate the words or sounds they hear.
To ascertain which conditions are causing your child to have difficulty gaining weight and also to ascertain whether the development is in accordance with what should be or not, it is advisable to check your child to the doctor because to assess it requires a direct examination. The doctor may also recommend that your child perform several examinations to determine further diagnoses. Therapy will be adjusted to the conditions found.
In the meantime, make sure your child gets enough nutrition according to his needs by providing healthy, balanced and varied food every day. Also provide milk that is appropriate for his age to help meet the nutritional needs that are not obtained through food.
I hope this helps.
