Diet For Babies Aged 6 Months?
Good day doctor, I want to ask. My baby is 6 months old now weighing 12 kilos. Is it natural with your weight or diet? From the moment I was born I only love exclusive breast milk. Just for 3 days I gave you a visit. Even then, I’ll give you fruits. If you really have to diet. What kind of diet? Even though my baby is fat he is very active, his movements are not soft. Please help answered. Thank you in advance
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
At the age of 6 months, naturally, male babies weigh around 6.4 to 9.8 kg, and baby girls range from 5.8 to 9.3 kg. At first glance, indeed your baby looks overweight.
However, in infants who still consume exclusive breastfeeding, being overweight is often not a dangerous condition. This is more influenced by genetic factors. Your baby's excessive weight also indicates that your milk is able to be absorbed very well by the body. Although, in some cases, it can also be, obesity in infants occurs related to a disease, such as diabetes, thyroid gland disorders, other hormonal disorders, side effects of drugs, genetic disorders, and so on.
In fact, you don't need to worry too much first. Along with the many physical activities he can do, then slowly his weight will decrease by itself. Keep giving your baby a variety of foods and drinks that have a balanced nutritional value, also equipped with lots of vegetables and fruits. Still also give him enough milk until he is 2 years old or more so that his endurance is always maintained. Also busy your baby with a variety of physical activities, including activities that stimulate their development. Do not forget, avoid the habit of giving baby food or instant drinks, especially if you have not consulted about safety with a doctor.
As you get older, your baby's body weight increases dramatically, or if you find your baby having difficulty breathing, snoring, seeming to have difficulty moving, experiencing many blisters on his body, and many other complaints, do not hesitate to check it directly to the doctor or specialist doctor children to be given the best solution huh ..
I hope this helps.
