Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
At the age of 4 years 6 months, boys normally weigh around 14 to 22 kg, with a height ranging from 99 to 115 cm. Therefore, referring to your statement, your child's growth is actually relatively good according to the age standard.
Children who seem sleepy often do not always refer to dangerous conditions. It could be, often sleepy is purely due to lack of sleep, fatigue, not eating, or bored with the activities carried out. In rare cases, it can also be sleepy in children caused by side effects of drugs, dehydration, anemia, hypoglycemia, viral or bacterial infections, hypothyroidism, malnutrition, chronic diseases, or even malignancy.
If you suspect your child's condition is very worrying, do not hesitate to check with him directly to the doctor or pediatrician to be given further treatment according to his condition. Not only that, you also need to do the following steps to maximize the handling of doctors:
Give children a variety of foods that are nutritionally balanced
Give your child enough to drink
Create a regular sleep schedule and wake up children every day
When it's not time to go to sleep, encourage your child to move and be active, don't let him get bored playing alone
Don't give the gadget child too early
Do not carelessly give children drugs without a doctor's prescription
Hope this helps ...
