Weight Loss For 5-month-old Babies?
I want to ask,
Hello Hendrik, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I help answer your overall question yes.
Drastic child weight loss will not occur even if your child moves actively, including in the learning process for stomach. Decreased baby's weight can occur due to inadequate milk intake and can also be caused by other diseases such as excess thyroid hormone, tuberculosis infection, or impaired absorption of nutrients in the gastrointestinal tract so it is advisable to be examined further by a doctor for evaluation what causes your child's weight loss, and also whether it has caused any disturbance in his nutritional status.
As for warm bodies, sweaty hands and legs, this can be a normal thing, but it can also be caused by several conditions as mentioned above so it is advisable to consult with other complaints. If later it is known what conditions cause the various complaints, then it can be determined what therapy should be given to your child.
For problems with insomnia, you can try to adjust your child's bedtime, especially for napping schedules, make sure your baby gets enough naps and naps according to the needs of his age and ensures the atmosphere when your child is as comfortable as he wants.
In the meantime, it is best to keep breastfeeding according to their needs (average children aged 4-5 months need 700 cc / day) without scheduling and limiting breastfeeding. It is not advisable to give formula milk without a clear recommendation from a doctor because your child may not need additional. If it is felt your child's body temperature is very hot (fever), it is permissible to give fever-lowering drugs such as paracetamol in accordance with the dosage on the packaging.
I hope this helps.
