Few weeks old baby

Question: Hello... My baby girl is 12days old. At the time of birth she was IUGR. Her birth weight was 2.2kg. She was in NICU for 4days. And her bilirubin level was 9.8 on her 3rd day. Now she is at home. During these days I just watch her either sleeping or crying for milk. She don't even breastfeed. Always in a very bad mood. Is this a situation to worry about?

    No. She had some problem with gas. I visited my pediatrician. He said as she is on formula feed dats why she might have some problem with gas. He prescribed a medicine for dt. N also said to force her to breastfeed. But she is so adamant dt she is denying all my efforts. N whenever she is crying i m giving her formula n den she is asleep again.

Answer: Hi dear, On an average 3 year old would weigh 14 kgs.to that comparison,your child is underweight.birth weight was absolutely fine.Baby weight is directly proportional to the healthy food.at times baby looks leaner but weight wise seems fine.every baby has its own pace of growth.as a mother you need to keep giving baby,healthy food options,and avoid any sugary food,or refined foods.give plenty of veggies ,fruits,daal,rice,if you are non vegetarian,can even give eggs, chicken soups etc.healthy carbohydrates would help in gaining more weight for your baby.idli,dosa,Dalia,oats are some good options.dairy like milk,curd,paneer ,cheeze ,dry fruits etc would also help in gaining weight.alao.make sure baby is not force fed.remember baby needs to be active rather than obese.healthy weight and overweight needs to be cleared.you want a healthy weight in your baby ,never try hard to make your child fat.
