Infant weight gain is part of a simple evaluation of infant growth and development assessments, especially those carried out at posyandu. Every visit diposyandu, children will receive health services in the form of immunization evaluation, examination of height, weight, health education, as well as the addition of toddler nutrition. Therefore, considering various factors that influence the increase in baby's weight can help the mother in adjusting the growth and development.
Some of the things below are factors that can affect the baby's weight gain, such as:
1. Nutrition intake according to age, both breast milk, complementary foods, fruits, vegetables, protein, carbohydrates, and milk
2. children's activities, the more they age, the higher their energy needs from food, so adjustments need to be made
3. health conditions, babies who are often sick, such as colds, fevers, coughs, can affect their weight gain
4. pollution, such as cigarette smoke, road pollution, industrial pollution, indirectly affects health and ultimately affects the west of the baby's body.
If the baby's weight is not within the normal value, then parents should be able to consult directly with the specialist child growth and development section, so the doctor can evaluate risk factors and help manage malnutrition in infants.
In connection with your question, if your baby's age is 10 months, then the average weight of your normal baby ranges from 8.3 kg to 10.3 kg, or the green chart on the KMS. Therefore, if your baby weighs 7.5 kg is still within the tolerance level, however, have started to be aware of the risk of malnutrition, or should be paid for. Your baby's weight chart is included in the yellow chart on the KMS, so it is necessary to consider risk factors that might trigger complaints this. If your baby's weight gain ranges from 0.3 kg in 1 month, then it is still necessary to try and evaluate the risk factors, because the baby's weight gain above 6 months to 1 year is expected to reach 0.5 kg per month.
If the nutritional intake is good, and you carry out routine control to the posyandu or to the poly child, then this becomes a positive value to be attempted, however, if you have not yet worked on both, then you should start to consider adequate milk / milk, milk or fruit and vegetables and regular visits to the posyandu.
In addition, the possibility of digestive disorders and food absorption can also trigger the risk of your baby's weight gain.
Therefore, however, you should begin to consider consulting with a pediatrician as described above.
