Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Body weight is indeed one component that must be highly observed in infants. This is because weight plays an important role in the immune system of the baby, as well as in growth and development. Babies whose weight is below normal, will get sick more easily, and can be hampered by the development process.
There are various kinds of things that can cause a child's weight to be difficult to rise, it could be due to insufficient food intake, it could be because the intake is sufficient but the nutritional content is insufficient, and if the intake is sufficient and the nutrients are also sufficient, it could be because the body has difficulty absorbing it, which means there is a disease certain. The disease varies, can form a blockage, the blockage itself can be because there is a bowel that is folded, there is a nervous breakdown so that the intestines can not push food, there are blockages in the form of certain lumps in the intestine, structural abnormalities in the esophagus, and many more.
So we suggest, the best step you can take is to check your child to a pediatrician or pediatric surgeon to find out more, about where the problem lies. By checking directly, through an in-depth history search, physical examination and support such as ultrasound, you can find out the tendency of the cause of your child's condition and the best treatment that can be given. This is important to do immediately because, unlike adults, for babies, ideal body weight is very influential on their future.
In the meantime, try to remember if there are foods that don't make him vomit, and give them. If your wife is still out, give ASI. Although weighing less, do not rush to give a lot of food, give little by little but often, and do not immediately lay your child down after eating. So, hopefully answering your question.
