Good evening Vanie Che, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.

Based on the standard charts used (graphs from WHO, CDC, and also the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia) to measure the weight ratio compared to age, your child's current condition can be said to be overweight (the meeting point is above the curve> 3 SD) when compared to children children your age, where for boys the average ideal weight at 6 months is 7.9 kg, and for girls is 7.3 kg. But to ensure the nutritional status of your child, not only can be determined through 1 type of comparison chart alone, it should also be considered from other graphs such as the ratio between weight and height, ratio of height to age, and also a comparison of body mass index with age of the child.

To ensure the nutritional status of your child and the proper handling of the nutritional state, if only based on a weight comparison chart and age is too fat, this should be further consulted with a pediatrician doctor. Because if the child is too fat, then your child needs further nutritional regulation because being overweight can trigger some adverse effects. You can read more about this in the following two articles: the causes of overweight children & the effects of overweight children

While this is at home, keep giving ASI and can also be started to be given complementary food ASI (MPASI). It is recommended to provide complementary foods such as breast milk which is generally recommended to be given to children according to their age. You can read the recommendations for giving MPASI in the following article: how to start MPASI.

I hope this helps.
