Question: My daughter is a active baby she is 3 yrs but am worried about her weight gain she is only 9.8 now... Her birth weight was 2.9...pl help in her weight gain
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.
