Question: My baby girl is 4 months now and her birthweight is 3.5kgs. Now she is 6kgs.is it OK? She doesn't take breast milk properly. Only my feeding no formula is giving till now. She is looking very thin. Pls suggest
Answer: Hello dear. Ideally babies gain 450 grams on an average every month after birth so if we considered this your baby is doing fine in terms of weight. I would suggest doing massage daily as that not only makes babies' muscles strong but keeps their digestion good which in turn makes the apetite of the baby good and they take the breastfeed properly. Looking thin is fine as not all babies are plump your baby should be active and should be gaining weight that is important. Hope it helps.
