Answer: Hi dear, I won't suggest formula milk unless you have shortage of brestmilk.3.6 kgs is still ok,continue to breastfeed.Right now your milk is the only source of nutrition for our baby.moreover the first 7 days baby would.loose all water weight.so you would find some loss of weight in baby ,which is normal.but baby should gain back the birth weight in next three weeks .and with in first three months baby must double the birth weight .frequent feeding especially every 2-3 hours in first month and then 3-4 hours in second month is must for healthy weight gain.you need to eat healthy so that baby gains faster.,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

Question: Hi frnds, My baby is 5 months old and his height is 68cms and weight is 5.8kg.. yesterday went for check up and his pediatrician told that he is underweight... He takes BM and we started with rice kool and vegetables as liquids... Pls tell me what is normal weight at this stage??
Answer: A healthy newborn is expected to lose 7% to 10% of the birth weight, but should regain that weight within the first 2 weeks or so after birth. During their first month, most newborns gain weight at a rate of about 1 ounce (30 grams) per day. Or 1 kg of weight each month till 6 month of age. So according to your babies birth you can calculate it.
