I want to ask that giving formula milk with a little sugar is allowed or not, since I worked my baby has been drinking formula but his weight has decreased from 8 kg to 76 now he is still 10 months old, and if he drinks formula it is not according to the dose because it often doesn’t run out, the solution is What to do??
When children enter the age of more than 6 months, their nutritional needs are no longer only from breast milk or formula milk. For this reason, it is important to provide complementary foods to breast milk to help increase the baby's weight and help nutritional needs so that they can grow and develop according to their age.
Giving added sugar to formula milk is not recommended, especially for children under 1 year because the digestive system is not ready to process the sugar which will risk causing disturbances to the baby's body. For that avoid adding sugar to processed foods or your baby's formula.
Normally a 10 month old child weighs between 9-11 kg in boys and 8.5-10 kg in girls. Check the child every month at the posyandu to monitor whether the child's growth and development is in accordance with his age.
To be able to increase the child's weight can be done several efforts such as:
Give the child complementary foods according to age. Pay attention to the quality of the child's sleep. Check the child's condition to assess the presence or absence of other causes that cause weight loss and difficulty gaining weight. Pay attention to the presence or absence of a formula allergy or food allergy in children. Give additional foods that contain vegetables, fruit and side dishes. improve nutrition in order to increase the child's weight Hopefully useful,
