Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The ideal body weight of boys and girls is different, as well as the ratio of weight gain and height are also different, therefore it is necessary to know more about the sex and patterns of activities and direct examination in full and comprehensive
Ideal body weight for children aged 1 year:
Male: 7.7-12 kg
Female: 7-11.5 kg
There are several possibilities that can cause a slow increase in body weight
The full return of children's food intake, a large portion of children's intake and meal times
Children are quite active in activities, so that food is used
Body type and heredity of parents
Address certain medical problems or conditions, such as diarrhea or other diseases
If the complaint does not improve or you are worried you should check your child to a pediatrician to get further examination and treatment related to your child's condition
