Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Overall, babies should always gain weight and it is not natural to lose any weight. Even babies shouldn't go past several months and don't gain weight at all. However, in particular, further assessment is needed regarding how much your baby weighs, whether so far it is on the green line or ideal weight line, or the red line for being overweight, or even in the red line for underweight. If you are in a position of excess body weight, of course, being underweight can be a good thing.
However, weight loss in babies can be caused by many conditions, including:
Poor quality of food Has certain diseases such as tuberculosis infection, prolonged diarrhea, hyperthyroidism There are problems in the baby's digestive tract The child is lazy to eat
We recommend that you consult your child's nutrition problems with a pediatrician, so that you can examine whether your child's weight is now ideal or not, what causes your child's weight to lose and how to overcome it. Your pediatrician will ask you about your child's medical history so far, perhaps starting from pregnancy, developmental history, immunizations and so on. If necessary, your doctor may also ask for investigations such as blood tests to further narrow the possibility. The treatment that will be given to your child will depend on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, also read articles on Baby Weight, and complementary foods. Keep your child away from the environment of sick people, and continue to provide nutritious food and drinks to meet their daily needs. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
