Answer: Hi! If you have GDM be sure it does not pass through to your baby but yes due to high glucose levels baby's weight might increase than gestational age, baby may be too large. Check your diet and reduce carb intake. take Doc prescribed medicine and it will be controlled. Walk daily and include lots of fruits, veggies and fish in your diet. There are succesful stories of Normal delivery with healthy babies.. as far as your hemoglobin is concerned take in iron rich foods like dates, fig etc.Jaggery is an excellent source of iron. Liver , in case you have non- veg Eat curry of 250 grams of leaves of drumstick tree.My friend was 9 during 2nd week of 9th month. she only added this in her diet. Doctor was astonished to see the result in two weeks gap. It went to 11. Include ragi, dates n pomegranates. also eat vitamin c rich foods. Vitamin C foods helps in better absorption of iron. Hope this helps!

Keep feeding him your milk or liquids to keep him hydrated. 2.You can try pitted prunes, take 2 spoon of Oats cook it till done add prune puree and feed at night 3. Please avoid offering Banana, Apple Rice and Toast this time. 4.Try and give warm water. 5.Papaya, prunes, pears, plums, green leafies, okra, oranges might help. Good luck!
