The Baby’s Weight At 2.5 Months Is 4 Kg?
AFTERNOON, MY PERMISSION IS ABOUT whether a 2.5-year-old baby with a normal 4KG WEIGHT, WHETHER D AT BIRTH THE WEIGHT IS 3.4 … THANK YOU PLEASE REPLY.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In male babies, when they are 2 months old, their normal body weight ranges from 4.9 to 6.3 kg. Meanwhile, for female babies, normal body weight at the age of 2 months is in the range of 4.7 to 6.2 kg. The range of normal values for this body weight can be slightly different in infants who have a history of preterm birth or with low birth weight (LBW).
If your baby is born at a full month and also has enough weight, then his current weight of just 4 kg is certainly not optimal. However, this needs to be confirmed again by checking other growth status, namely body length and head circumference. So, it's not enough just measuring your body weight.
There are several factors that can cause a baby's growth not optimal according to age standards, including inadequate nutritional intake, a history of premature birth, a history of birth with LBW, or also suffering from other diseases, such as indigestion, thyroid gland disorders, chronic infections, cancer. , chipped, and so on.
Therefore, it is necessary to do a thorough examination of your baby first to find out the cause of the complaint. Have your baby checked directly with a pediatrician at the nearest health facility. Not only a physical examination and monitoring of growth and development status, the doctor may also direct your child to undergo other additional examinations, such as the Mantoux test, X-rays, and so on. Furthermore, the treatment given will be adjusted to the underlying cause of your child's complaint.
In the meantime, you should focus on giving your child exclusive breastfeeding. The nutritional content in breast milk is very easily absorbed by the baby's digestive system which is still very sensitive so that it can reduce the potential for malnutrition in babies. Avoid giving additional food or drink before the baby turns 6 months, unless it is recommended directly by the doctor. Make sure you keep the environment around your baby so that it is always clean, ventilated and well lit, and not in close contact with adults who have contagious diseases. Do not forget, periodically monitor the status of your baby's growth and development to a pediatrician.
