The Cause Of A Baby’s Weight With Breast Milk Is Difficult To Rise?
Good afternoon, I’m a mother of 2 toddlers. My first child is 3.5 years old and my second child is 5 months old. From the first and second child when I got pregnant my BB rose dramatically. First up 15kg of babies born 2.7kg. The second my bb rose 17kg baby born 2.5. The first ASI did not come out even though I had eaten nutritious food and had been consulted by a doctor. As a result the brother was given milk and age 3 months cow milk allergy. Eventually the growth stalled due to the change to soy milk. The KIA chart of the older sister used to be from green to yellow … red … yellow, then it could be normal to the green chart at the age of 2 years. This second child of mine is also rising BB not much. This month the age of 5 months bb 5,6kg. Because this month I got Bapilnas so it didn’t go up. The KIA chart of the younger sibling is bounded between green and yellow. Even though this little sister is full ASI. the food I eat is also nutritious … vegetables, fruits, milk, breast milk boosters like lactamond milk, blackmores, asifit have also been consumed. Well, the BB increased even by me. Dr 69 became 73 because I injected 3 months. What I want to ask is whether the food nutrition that I consume so far has only been absorbed by me, right? Is this some kind of disease or what? Because when pregnant the mother is big, not the baby. Thank you, I’m waiting for your reply.

At the age of 5 months, the optimal baby's weight is around 6.5 to 8.5 kg in male infants, and around 6 to 8 kg in female infants. Therefore, if your baby currently weighs only 5.6 kg, it means that his weight is indeed lacking.
Baby's weight is mainly determined by nutritional intake. At the age of 0 to 6 months, this nutritional intake should ideally be supported only by breast milk. Giving enough milk for babies is not only a matter of quantity, but also of quality. To produce good quantity and quality of breast milk, you need to drink more, eat a variety of nutritious foods, no excessive stress, and also regularly empty your breasts every 1 to 3 hours. If you have done this step optimally for your baby, but your weight is still lacking, you should also consider other possible causes, for example:
History of premature birth or low birth weight (low birth weight)
Indigestion, such as Crohn's disease, celiac disease, digestive infections
Chronic diseases, such as tuberculosis, congenital heart disease, thyroid gland disorders, lupus, malignancy, and so on
You need to check your baby's condition directly to the doctor or pediatrician to further evaluate the possible underlying causes of the condition, for example by Mantoux, X-ray, laboratory, ultrasound, and so on. Thus, of course the handling can be given more optimally according to the cause.
You should not panic too much. Focus on giving your baby enough, high-quality milk at the steps mentioned above. Do not forget, also keep the environment clean where the baby lives, keep the baby away from other people who are experiencing infectious infections, and always control the growth and development of infants in the nearest health facility. Avoid carelessly giving extra food or drinks, as well as weight gain supplements to infants without a prescription directly from a doctor.
I hope this helps.
