Can MR Immunization Be For An 11 Month Old Baby With BB 6.7?
morning, my son’s age is 11m3d with a BB of 6.7 and currently the immune system is not MR, due to the age of 9+ lg coughing colds.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
At the age of 11 months, normally a baby boy will weigh between 7.7 to 11.5 kg, while a baby girl ranges from 7 to 11 kg. Therefore, if you only look at weight and age, your baby is classified as thin. But ideally, the suitability of a child's growth is not only judged by his weight, but must also consider height, abdominal circumference, and head circumference.
Underweight baby is actually not a contraindication given MR immunization (measles, rubella). In fact, with this immunization, your baby can be more immune to 2 types of diseases, namely measles and measles German (rubella).
However, it needs to be further investigated, what factors actually cause your baby's weight to be less than his age standard. Because, in some cases, a baby's weight is less closely related to his body's endurance which is also weak. This weak immune system, if very significant, can be a barrier to immunization. This weak immune system can also make your baby more susceptible to coughing and colds.
Therefore, before giving your baby an immunization, you should first check it with a doctor or a pediatrician.
To help your baby achieve optimal growth, here are our suggestions:
Give him enough milk and water
Also give him a healthy MPASI and rich in calories and protein, vary the type of MPASI daily
If the baby is experiencing frequent coughs and colds, you should avoid him from a fan or air conditioner that is too cold, keep him also from smoke and pollution, always keep the environment clean where the baby lives, improve ventilation and air circulation at home, and keep your baby away from potential allergens (such as dust mites, animal hair, pollen)
If there are other people around the baby who are having a contagious infection, keep them away so that they do not come close to the baby
Control the regular growth and development of infants to the nearest health facility
Hope this helps ...
