afternoon doctor, introduce my name is dian. I have a child who is 18 months old, indeed the child is very active (the name of the environment introduction period maybe yes). What I’m asking is, how come his weight doesn’t match his age, it’s always decreasing, the last time I had a checkup with the doctor last week his BB was 9.2, said the doctor, less than the minimum instead? is that right? from my diet, sometimes I want to eat sometimes it’s hard, but I always try to eat in, is it because my child always sweats when he sleeps? indeed if you always sweat at night … what is the cause. what’s the solution? so that the child’s BB is stable, the last check-up was only given vitamins… well, thank you for your time..

Hallo Dian, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com

Sweat that comes out at night that your child experiences can indicate certain diseases, for example:

Tuberculosis (TB) Endocarditis, infection of the heart Hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar levels Hormonal disturbances Cancer If your child's symptoms are accompanied by drastic weight loss, immediately consult a pediatrician, to do a physical examination, support such as a complete blood count, mantoux test, and chest x-ray if needed.

If your child currently weighs 9.2 kg, it is still within normal limits, because 18 month old babies generally weigh between 9 and 12 kg. While his height can be around 76 to 84 cm. Of course all babies have their own pace of development. No need to panic if your little one's weight and height have not reached the above figures.

So that the child's weight is stable or according to his age what we can do is:

Limit milk intake. Do it slowly, don't immediately reduce it quickly to get used to your child Consult a pediatrician to control nutritional intake and child development Provide food with balanced nutritional conditions Let children continue to be active playing or doing activities Get in the habit of maintaining cleanliness (by washing hands before or after eating) read articles about normal baby weight And be aware of babies failing to thrive
