Question: My baby is 15 days old n he is not gaining weight...what should i do...??he is not taking my milk properly..i feed him with the help of breast nipples.. please advice me what to do...
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.
Question: My baby is not taking top feed from last 15 days ..he is taking only breastfeed..what to do?
Answer: Hello, toddlers tend to play all the time and they do not have much interest in eating food , if he is active nothing to worry about but still you can give him soaked dry fruits , prepare rice kheer or sabudhana kheer and decorate with dry fruits on it looks attractive , give him ghee, butter, milk, fruits , veggies, strawberries, fish , egg, chicken if you are non vegetarian. Make the food bit more attractive so that he will get attracted to eat the food. U can also give him peanuts, paneer , tofu, yogurt mixed with bit sugar increases weight, also milk mixed with honey also increases weight. Hope this helps.
