Baby Bone Enlargement?
. I want to ask and I am 19 years old. My twins are now 3 months old but how come their hands and feet are small. How can I spy on the growth of their bones, can they be faster? Please
What is your baby's gender? Was born full term or premature and what is the birth weight and current weight? Are hands and feet small compared to babies his age?
In general, a 3-month-old baby boy weighs 5.1-7.9 kg with a body length of 57.6-65.3 cm. Meanwhile, a 3-month-old baby girl weighs 4.6-7.4 kg with a body length of 55.8-63.8 cm. In addition to body length and weight, baby's growth and development are also seen from head circumference, motor skills, verbal abilities, and social skills. For hand and foot measurements are rarely used as growth parameters.
Babies aged 3 months are generally able to hold their heads up if done tummy time / on their stomach, can start to turn left and right, smile / laugh when invited to joke, chatter, enjoy observing everything around them.
If you feel that your baby is smaller than your baby's age or if your weight is below the red line on the health card (KMS), or if your baby can't hold his head up, doesn't laugh when you joke around, doesn't focus his eyes on certain objects, and can't hold his hand. objects, you should have your baby checked by a pediatrician so that an assessment of his growth and development can be carried out. Furthermore, the pediatrician can provide the necessary treatment for your baby.
To help the growth and development of a 3-month baby, make sure the baby's fluid and nutritional needs are fulfilled by giving exclusive breastfeeding, giving encouragement and praise when the baby succeeds in doing something new (for example, successfully tilting the body), often invites the baby to talk anything including introducing the names of things around him.
