Hello Ms. Sri Wahyuni,
In order for a child's weight to increase properly, his intake must be adequate. Of course, in a sick child, it is not that simple. The ability to eat children is directly or indirectly caused by these congenital abnormalities, the type of congenital abnormalities, the ability to absorb food provided as well as various other factors affecting the child's growth.
Typically, children with congenital heart and / or lung disorders have a lower body weight than children their age. This happens because the body works hard to compensate for these abnormalities in order to move. In addition to growth, developments such as rolling, sitting, walking and so on can also be slower than children his age.
At the moment, what can be done so that the child's weight increases is to provide adequate intake, both with breast milk, standard milk formula or special formula milk recommended by doctors. How to give it also needs attention. If the child has difficulty breastfeeding due to tightness, aids may be needed such as food hoses. Because the description of congenital abnormalities given is incomplete and conditions vary, it is difficult to determine the most appropriate method for your niece. Your niece's pediatrician can give appropriate advice.
You can also provide psychological support for your niece's parents, so you can keep positive thinking.
