Good afternoon Sephia,

Categorization of weight in children can be seen based on curves (can be from the curve in the pink KMS (Kartu Towards Sehat) book distributed by the posyandu). According to the weight curve of the WHO, the normal weight of a boy aged 7 months is around 6.8 kg to 10 kg, while for a girl aged 7 months it is around 6 kg to 9.8 kg. Acute diarrhea experienced by children can indeed lead to weight loss, especially if the child is dehydrated and does not get adequate replacement fluid therapy. Underweight children can also be caused by several things:

undernutrition or malnutrition. Malnutrition can also be caused by a child being picky about food or 'going on a hunger strike', to outsmart it you can try to give your child an attractive appearance for long-lasting infections, such as worms, parasitic infections of the gastrointestinal tract, tuberculosis infections, and other Digestive problems that result in the child not being able to absorb the nutrients that have been given, for example in chronic diarrhea. problems with the heart, for example in congenital heart disease. To increase the child's weight, mothers can try the following:

Provide foods that are high in protein, such as eggs, free-range chicken, beef broth, nuts, etc. Give 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. Provide high-calorie snacks, such as peanut butter biscuits, bananas, and others. -Other you can try to provide a source of fat as an addition to your child's diet, for example adding butter, butter, or cheese Formula milk as a nutritional supplement don't drink too much before eating because this can make your child feel full easily. Don't forget to weigh and regular check-ups, for example at the nearest posyandu. If your child's weight does not increase after trying the tips above, it is recommended that you take your child to a pediatrician for further treatment. The doctor may perform a complete physical examination if needed (such as body length, head circumference, arm circumference, etc.). Blood tests, or X-rays can also be done if the doctor suspects that there is another cause in the child that causes the weight to not increase.

Regarding your child who has not been able to crawl, you don't need to worry too much because babies usually crawl at the age of 7 to 10 months. Don't forget to always provide stimulation for your baby, ma'am, for example by placing the toy a bit far from the child so that the child tries to reach it by crawling.
