Good morning, I’m a breastfeeding mother. My baby is 5 months 12 days old and weighs only 6.1 kg. I’ve been giving complementary foods since I was 4 months old, because every month her weight increases by 3 ounces. When she was born she weighed 3.1 kg. Why is my baby so hard? The weight has gone up, what can I do so that my baby’s weight can increase rapidly. And is my baby’s weight normal? Thank you

Hello Situngkir Boru Panggoaran

Thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.

Currently your baby is 5 months old and weighs 6.1 kg with a birth weight of 3.1 kg.

The baby's weight that doesn't go up sometimes makes parents worried. But you don't have to worry because there is a possibility that your baby is still in the normal range of baby weight according to the baby's weight and height. Baby weight is usually influenced by several factors such as genetics or heredity, eating and drinking patterns, activities, other diseases. And it is recommended to give only breast milk for up to 6 months.

Actually, the first few days to the first 4 weeks after birth, the baby's weight can decrease and this is normal. And normally in a 5 month old baby, the normal weight according to the Card to Healthy or KMS is around 6-9.4 kg. With an increase of 1.4-2 ounces each week. Usually roughly the normal weight of a 5 month old baby is 2 times the birth weight. Actually your baby is still in the normal range. However, if you are still worried about your child's growth and weight gain, you should consult a pediatrician. Some suggestions for you are:

Make sure the mother consumes balanced nutritious food to improve the quality and quantity of breast milk. Set the pattern of drinking breast milk for babies, take care of children's conditions, try to avoid children from adults who are infectious. Pay attention to the child's rest time, make sure the child has enough rest time. Observe and control the child's development periodically to the nearest health facility.
