Question: Hello, my baby is 4 month old and yet she doesn't roll over and she doesn't even try to do it sometimes i make her try to roll like i take her on one side amd show her favourite toys but instead of rolling over she goes back to her original position which is on her back please suggest me what should i do?
Every baby is different and so are their developmental skill. Babies need strong neck muscle to roll over, few babies do it at 4 months and few may do it at 5 th or 6 th months.
Please dont worry, baby will do everything with time and when he is ready.
Question: Hi dr. My baby is 6 months and 23 days...her weight is 6 kgs...dr.said she is underweight...what to do... Whenever i try to give her food like cerelac, avocado etc she refuses to take and pukes sometimes
Answer: Dear try giving variety of foods as usually babies do this when they are introduced to the semi solids but the trick is to keep trying and offering new foods so that they would take it. Also offer food when your baby is hungry instead of breastmilk offer food. Below are some type of foods which u can give to ur baby :-
1.) Pureed vegetables (sweet potatoes, squash)
2.) Pureed fruit (apples, bananas, peaches)
3.) Pureed meat (chicken, pork, beef)
4.) Semi-liquid, iron-fortified cereal.
5.) Small amounts of unsweetened yogurt (no cow's milk until age 1)
Some finger food favorites:
O-shaped toasted oat cereal; small chunks of banana or other very ripe, peeled fruit like mango, plum, pear, peach, cantaloupe, or seedless watermelon; small cubes of tofu; well-cooked pasta spirals, cut into pieces; thin cheese strips or very small chunks of cheese; cut-up seedless grapes ...
Most pediatricians recommend starting your infant on Yogurt around 7-8 months of age. Some pediatricians also recommend yogurtas a great first food (from 6 months+). Selecting a Whole Milk Yogurt is the most beneficial to your infant as babies need fats in their diets for proper growth.
You can give ur baby a variety of food but in a puree or porridge state.
Breakfast idly with breast milk or formula upma
Roti with milk or formula mashed dosa mashed
Snack boiled apple mashed banana puree vegetable soup diluted fresh fruit juices ragi milk ghee sugar
Lunch dal rice mashed khichdi sooji kheer cerelac or nestum
Snack whole grain puffs mashed potatoes tossed in butter peach puree
Dinner should always be light as hard carbohydrate like wheat ragi dal can cause indigestion or loose motions
Give sooji kheer nestum or cerelac by 8 pm u can keep feeding ur baby breast milk or formula as needed between the meals. Be sure to use alot of ghee as fats and oils help in gaining weight.
Hope i helped.
