5 months old baby

My 5 month baby is very lean..why she is not becoming chubby?

Question
Hi dear, The only source of nutrition is your breast milk.make it as nutritious as possible.making it more thick and rich would make your baby chubby.To make your milk richer so that your baby could sleep longer and get more chubby,you need to consume: 1-eat balanced diet including fresh vegetables and fruits 2- increase your diet by eating extra 500 calories in a day 3- include lot of proteins, especially from animal meat.like egg,chicken,mutton ,fish 4- drink plenty of water too Feed from one breast full,only then hind milk,which is the richest milk can be accessible to your baby.foremilk is thinner and only quenches thirst

Answer: Hi dear, Right now your main intension should be to introduce various solid food not feeding him to put on weight.the 1 st year is introducing him to various tastes,texture etc a food can have.let him eat how much ever he wants to eat.donor force feed. You can also introduce few spices like jeera ,to titillate his taste buds.donot stop breastfeeding though.make him some yummy porridges with mashed banana and oats,boiled mashed apple with pinch of cinnamon can add taste.ragi porridge with jaggery would also give different texture.dalia khichidi with veggies like carrot and beans can be given too.but do it gradually and in small quantities.2 - 3 spoon is good enough to start.he will slowly pick up by end of 1 st year.give in small but frequent portions.make the meals fun.
