We understand the concern you feel. First, let's discuss the nutritional status of your child. Your baby girl is currently 6 months old and weighs 5.6 kg. If it is plotted in the WHO child growth curve from the Indonesian Pediatric Association, based on the weight curve towards age, then the dot will be exactly in the bottom red line. This shows that your child's nutritional status is still lacking / malnourished. Normally the weight of a 6 month old baby girl is in the range of 5.8 - 9 kg.
Then, related to the development of infants, it is important to note that each child has variations in the time and type of development, so it cannot be compared to other children. Generally at the age of 6 months, babies can begin to lie on their stomach, roll around, ongong-ongong or get ready to practice crawling. At this age babies also begin to learn to sit even with support. Overall, entering the age of 6 months, the baby's muscles have begun to develop and strong support their bodies for their daily activities. In this case, the baby will appear more active to move and also requires more monitoring from parents and caregivers. Language and social skills are also increasingly developing. Babies are easily attracted to images and begin to understand what people around them are doing. At this age, MPASI can also be introduced to babies to meet their daily nutritional needs.
So, you don't need to worry. What you need to know is that each child has their own uniqueness that cannot be compared with other children, especially in terms of growth and development. Your baby's development is still within normal limits. In addition, there is no relationship between cold water with the growth and development of infants. Cold water does not have any impact on your baby's growth and development. More stimulation is needed from parents so the baby is able to develop according to the stage of age. However, the thing that you need to pay attention to is your baby's nutritional status which is still classified as undernourished based on body weight and age. Nutritional status is more accurate if measured based on the value of the child's weight and body length. Therefore, you should do a check directly to the health service closest to you to monitor the growth and development of your baby. Start preparing your baby's additional nutrition with a healthy, complete and nutritious MPASI according to the age of the baby and continue breastfeeding. If necessary, you can consult and discuss directly with pediatricians to get more complete and relevant information. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
