Question: My boy s 3.9kg now he is 60 days baby. He s a premature baby his birth weight is 2.1kg
Answer: Hi dear, the weight of the baby is bit less. if the little one is not gaining weight it makes us worried. There are several simple things that have been proven to help with weight gain :
Stop or decrease solid foods, particularly if baby is younger than 6 months. Most solids foods have fewer calories and nutrients than breastmilk, plus they tend to replace (rather than add to) the higher-calorie, more nutritious breastmilk.Sleep close to your baby (this increases prolactin and frequency of nursing).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.Make sure you’re allowing your baby to completely finish one side before you offer the other by waiting upon her cues that she is finished; i.e. pulling off herself and looking satisfied, going to sleep, changing from an active suck/swallow to more of a pacifier suck, etc. Always OFFER the second side, but don’t worry if she doesn’t seem to need it. It’s much more important that she be allowed to completely finish one side than that she nurse both sides. By doing so she will be assured of reaching enough of the richer, more caloric hindmilk that helps her to go longer between feedings.Use breast massage and breast compression during breastfeeding. If you’re pumping, use hands on pumping techniques.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.If supplements are medically indicated, breastmilk is preferred over formula as a supplement (exceptions to this are rare), and the average fat/calorie content of mom’s milk is higher than that of formula. Mom can pump for 5-10 minutes after nursing (don’t interrupt or shorten the nursing session to do this), and offer this higher-fat hindmilk to baby as needed. This is also an option for moms who normally offer expressed milk when they are separated from baby

Answer: Hello! The weight given on healofy is an average weight. It is nothing to worry. Infact, your baby has put on good weight. Ideally baby should double their birth weight by 6 months, but your baby has already doubled her birth weight. Don't worry dear..the growth is absolutely fine and you are doing a great job...
