Hello Febry, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Breast milk is the best intake for infants up to the age of the first 6 months, it is important for the growth and development of infants. Highly recommended than giving formula milk. However, some conditions such as inadequate breast milk, or babies who drink less milk, force us to give formula milk to our babies. This, is not entirely wrong, but becomes a last resort.
With adequate nutrition, it is expected that the growth and development of the baby will proceed normally, according to the baby's age. Weight (BB) babies entering the age of 5 months are ideal according to medical conditions can be distinguished by sex. The ideal body weight for a 5-month-old girl is 6.9 kg (minimum 4.7 kg and a maximum of 9.9 kg). As for the ideal weight of a 5-month-old baby boy is 7.5 kg (minimum 5.3 kg and a maximum of 10.3 kg). (based on KMS chart, Indonesian Ministry of Health). If the baby's weight does not increase at all in weighing 2 months in a row, it is advisable to consult a doctor, to evaluate the cause of the BB not rising.
In addition to body length and head circumference, weight is one of the measurements of the growth of the Little One during the growth and development. To measure its growth, the three benchmarks above are then entered into a growth curve that is appropriate for the age and sex in the children's health book.
Thus my short answer, hopefully useful.
