Good afternoon, I want to ask .. r nMy son this month is 7 months over 1 week, last time he thought his BB was still in the amount of 6.1 kg 3 weeks ago. It was the same when he was at the age of 6 months. I did drink breast milk and milk and now it is Mpasi, for mpasi I make it myself and my child is always eating and eating. why yes why at the age of 7 months the bb is still not going up at all, until I always ask if there is a mistake in giving milk or Mpasi or whether my mother and I are less nutritious in eating … I always consider always consulting that the doctor said as long as the green line is still safe but if yellow has to be vigilant, do I need to see a nutritionist or maybe there is a solution .. thanks in advance
Greetings, Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The baby's body weight can be evaluated routinely and periodically both independently at home or at the posyandu in each area of residence. Every periodic checkup, it is expected that the baby's weight can rise according to the age of the baby which can be seen on the card to be healthy from the Posyandu or from the nearest health service. So from the KMS, it can be known that the baby's weight measurement chart is periodically, then an evaluation is carried out if there is a tendency to find a decrease in the baby's weight graph. The tendency for weight loss in babies can be known if the weight graph decreases from the green line to the yellow line, so it is necessary to evaluate the possible causes of this decrease. If weight loss has passed the orange line, then this condition must be treated immediately to help the baby's growth and growth return to optimal. Some of the conditions below can cause weight loss, including:
nutritional intake, breast milk, milk or MPASI unbalanced. This needs to be evaluated for the frequency and quality of nutrition provided by infants often sick with fever, flu, cough or diarrhea not wanting to eat or drink breast milk due to digestive disorders or oral health problems impaired food absorption in digestion of underlying diseases, thyroid disorders, heart disorders, anemia To find out the possible causes of this complaint, it is necessary to have a direct examination by a pediatrician for growth and development, so that further examinations and appropriate evaluations can be planned, such as blood tests or heart tests. So that the treatment given is based on the results of the examination and diagnosis. In connection with your question, for a 7 month old baby, the optimal weight value should be 7-8 kg, so if your baby's weight was 6.1 kg in the past 3 weeks, then this indicates less ideal weight for your baby, however, you need to get new data on your baby's weight for further evaluation. Weight gain that is difficult to achieve even if your baby eats, may be due to the nutritional balance that goes into increasing your baby's activity. Therefore, you should be able to evaluate the quantity and quality of breast milk intake, milk, and MPASI. If your baby is sick, then immediately consult a family doctor or pediatrician for further treatment of the condition of pain experienced, thus preventing the baby from losing weight. For handling less than ideal baby's weight, you can consult with a specialist pediatrician on growth and development, the doctor will help ascertain the cause of this complaint, if needed, the doctor can refer your baby to a nutritionist for evaluation of your baby's nutrition. Thus the info we can convey.
