Question: My baby 45 days old I'm giving breast milk only but she is not gaining weight
Answer: Hi dear,i know your concern as if the little one is not gaining weight it makes us worried. But if baby is active and achieving all the milestones then you should not get worried at all. There are several simple things that have been proven to help with weight gain you can give it a try : Learn baby massage — this has been proven to improve digestion and weight gain.Carry baby throughout the day in a baby carrier; get as much skin to skin contact as you can. Both of these things have been shown to improve weight gain. Nurse often – at least every 2 hours during the day and at least once at night. Frequent nursing increases baby’s milk intake. Use breast massage and breast compression during breastfeeding.Pump or hand express for a couple of minutes before nursing. This will remove some of the foremilk so that your baby receives more of the richer, higher calorie hindmilk.
