Baby Only Rises 500 Gr / Month Is That Normal ??
I want to ask my child now, I want the age of 4 months to finish his body in check.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically if you look at your child's growth curve on the card to health (KMS), at the bottom of the curve there is a minimum weight gain (or abbreviated KBM on the card) that is expected to occur in infants every month. For example from 0 months to 1 month of age it is expected that a minimum weight gain of 800 grams is expected, from the first month to the second month an increase in body weight of at least 900 grams is expected, from the second month to the third month an increase in body weight of at least 800 grams is expected. If you do not meet this KBM, for 2 consecutive months, then you must immediately bring your child to the pediatrician because of weight gain, including less. If this condition continues, then your child is at risk of experiencing stunting or height increase disorder as well. If your baby's nutritional needs are also not fulfilled, your baby is also at risk of experiencing brain development disorders. Therefore you should immediately take your baby to the pediatrician for further evaluation.
When it's past the age of 3 months, bowel movements are rarely quite normal in babies who consume breast milk. But if you are under 3 months old, a rare bowel movement can indicate a lack of milk intake in infants. You can try to breastfeed your baby more often, breastfeeding at least 15-20 minutes each, make sure the baby's attachment is also good. Your child should still be taken to a pediatrician for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
