Question: My baby was born at a normal range for weight 3.8 kgs. I was breastfeeding and had to stop due to medical reasons. He gained normally until 3 months thereafter his weight slowed down and ever since then he gains weight very slowly and doesn't have much fat for a 5 month baby. Unfortunately we've started solids hoping he will gain weight although his still a bit small for his age. Is there any way to make him a fast gainer? thank you :)
Answer: Hello dear. First of all semi solids should be start only after 6 months. Baby’s growth and baby’s weight are two different things. Child’s weight is one part of its overall growth but it is not the only measuring criteria to check the child’s development.
Foods to add in ur baby's daily diet for weight gain are Banana, Desi Ghee, Ragi, whole Cream Yogurt, Oats, Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Pulses, Avacado, Khichdi with lots of veges, Egg, Whole Wheat
Hope it helps
