Normal Weight In Children Aged 1 Year?
Doctor, want to ask. My 1 year old child weighs 7.5 kg. Is it normal? What is the ideal baby weight, and why is my child having difficulty eating? Only 3-5 bribes already do not want to eat. Are there any health problems with my child?
Hello Tiky Perdana, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
The development of toddlers is an important stage in their lives. Development can be assessed physically and kgonitively toddlers. One important component is weight. Body weight in one year old children based on body weight / U is said to be ideal if it is between the range of -2 standard deviations to +2 standard deviations, or in boys: 7.7 kg - 12 kg, and in women 7kg - 11.5kg. The following chart is attached for your reference material.
Based on the graph, ideally children with a minimum age of one year have a weight of 7.7 kg. Your child is categorized as a child who is underweight. But you do not worry this can be corrected immediately by providing enough additional food.
Weight gain and infant development at 12 months can be influenced by:
At the age of one year the child can be introduced to whole milk / cow's milk / formula milk in addition to breast milk. Give the baby milk 2-3 times a day at a dose of 230 mL. In supplementary feeding, there is actually no specificity regarding the type of food chosen, give main meals 3 times a day with snacks 3 times between meals. Because feeding starts varies, there will be changes in the consistency of the baby's stool. If the baby is constipated, provide food high in fiber. You do not need to feel too worried about your child's lack of weight, because it is still relatively mild. Immediately provide additional food, or consult a pediatrician / nutritionist for more specific nutrition.
That's all my answer, apologize for more and lack.
Thank you, good luck always :)
