Do Babies Who Look Thin Need To Be Replaced By Formula Milk?
night, my 4-month-old child weighing 6.1 kg is it normal according to medicine? according to one of my friends whose midwife has less weight, I think it should be 6.5-7 min. my brother drinks full milk because my asi is not smooth, in my opinion my child is drinking enough for one day, up to 7 bottles more than 70ml each, but my child doesn’t drink as fat as other children but my child is rather long, is it necessary to replace milk if you need to replace it with a good baby what to do? or may be called a good milk brand? and how can the mothers understand that their children are sufficiently nourished ?? please enlighten me. thank you
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The baby's weight can be evaluated periodically by making regular visits to the posyandu in each residential environment or to the health center according to the specified schedule.
At the posyandu, mothers will get a book on children's growth and development and health services related to immunization or information on children's health and nutrition.
So with the posyandu book, every month the child will be weighed and adjusted to chart the growth and development of children carried out at the posyandu. Therefore, visit the nearest posyandu to get good child health information.
In connection with your question, if your baby is 4 months old, your normal baby's weight can range from 5.6 kg to 7 kg. If your baby's weight is 6.1 kg, then your baby's weight is still within normal limits. With the frequency and amount of drinking milk that has been quite good, and there are no side effects from the drinked milk, then you do not need to replace the milk that you have given.
Baby's health complaints often also affect their weight, such as complaints of colds or mild coughs, therefore, if your baby has frequent complaints of flu or cough, then these complaints should be restored immediately. If at home there are family members who are sick or smokers, your baby should not be infected or exposed to cigarette smoke.
In general, visit the nearest posyandu or pediatrician to get toddler health services to take care of your toddler's health and find out about toddler's growth and development.
That is the info we can convey.
