Good evening..I want to ask. My son is 3 months old. In the first month after he was born his BB increased by 9ons. After that, the K2 month increased by only 2ons. And his age was 3 months. His BB also increased only 2 ons. I’m worried .. why is the body weight a little bit up. I don’t want my ankle to progress. why am I not healthy? or what. even though my baby is very congested when I am still breastfeeding. I ride the BB a lot. nThank you.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Previously, you need to know that in normal babies under 6 months of age, experts around the world have agreed that there is no food or other nutrition that is better and can be given except breast milk. So that in fact your decision to give formula milk is not right. Formula milk can be given, in conditions where breast milk cannot be given, for example if the mother has HIV infection, or the like.
Then, to find out whether your baby is at a normal weight or not, you should routinely check your child at the posyandu, to see if he is still on the green line and if he is increasing every month. If this is not the case, then you must consider your child to have certain diseases, which can be infections, digestive system disorders, developmental disorders and so on. For that, you must check your child at a pediatrician for further treatment. Let your pediatrician determine whether your child really needs other intake besides breast milk.
But again the concept, in healthy babies, exclusive breastfeeding is the best choice until he is 6 months old. So, hopefully it answers your question.
