Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Knowing the baby's weight is important to measure the level of health. The ideal body weight will better support the baby in surviving various diseases, cold environmental temperatures, and so on. Baby's weight is said to be low or less if the range is below 2.5 kg or 2500 grams.
Among the common causes of low birth weight are:
Born earlier than 37 weeks pregnant with twins Disorders of the placenta or placenta High blood pressure during pregnancy
Low weight babies need help to stay warm and must be kept dry. Therefore, usually babies born with low body weight will be treated intensively first. Regarding whether it can grow normally, if it is only associated with low birth weight, it is very possible, as long as you and your partner take good care of it, regularly give breast milk, routinely take it to the doctor to control its weight gain, given immunizations according to schedule for its endurance , and so forth.
For sudden coughing, sneezing and feeling nauseous, this can happen for a variety of things, from simple things like dust to infections. As long as he doesn't do it too often or seems so weak and tormented, you don't have to worry. But if you are in doubt, have your child checked by a pediatrician so that further tests can be done. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
