Continue breastfeeding along with semi solid food. Breastfeed 30-45 mins before giving food. That way baby will get nutrition of bm plus will enjoy the texture of food. If ur baby has enough poop and pee count she is getting enough.also at 7 months babies need 2 meals or 1 meal and 1 snack.
Hi Urja. pee count seems ok. Shes pooping once a day or twice a day. But she's not gaining enough weight. I'm doubtful about supply.
Its very common for babies to gain less weight after 6 months as their energy is consumed in playing. If ur doc is not worried about weight then dont worry.even my kid is 7 months this month she didnt gain any weight but my doc is ok becos she is active n achieving her milestones.
Really? I mean this is growing age. I hope it's not abnormal. Anyway thanks for your help:)
Yes its a growing age but weight gain will slow down once babies start crawling,walking,playing.their energy gets utilized there.they are not small babies who just eats,sleeps n lay down.they are becoming more active exploring new things.
Facing same problem with my son too. He was gaining very good till 6 months. Now he will turn 7 months in a week. I have been giving him solids and feeding him. But he has not gained any weight at all. He is quite active and achieving all milestones
I was planning to take doctor's opinion. Do you think its ok??? He is in the same weight for almost a month now.
Hi Roobala, It's very hard to accept that its normal. I'm going to meet my doctor in a day or two. By the time I've started taking lactonic granules and fenugreek seeds with every meal to boost milk supply. Stopped pumping for cereals. Now adding formula in her cereals. In my opinion babies should gain few grams atleast.
@Roobala By the way what are you feeding him? Apart from milk. And how many times?
My baby also gaining quite a good weight till 6 month.. after starting solids her weight is increase with very slow rate...at 6 months she is 6.5kg and now she is 10 month n has weighs 7.5 kg. doctor says weight is ok but i am not satisfied..she gained only 1 kg in 4 months..worried:(:(
Hi yes give 2 times semisolid diet and rest of the times breastmilk or formula milk both
@Shilpi I think Milk is the main reason for growth. Try increasing milk in her diet. I'm doing same. I offer her breast more. I know it's very tough but worth it. Anything for kids!!! I've also added ghee in her food now. Like one two drops only.
Dr. Prisha but how do I know my milk is sufficient for her?
This is so normal u have to accept that. Even doctors would say its normal my child didnt gain any weight in thr month and gained 300gm in just 5 days so babies will tend to attain n utilize their energy in playing.my baby has been teething since a month so there are several factors that affect weight gain teething,crawling,playing,learning to walk,sit till 6 months they just do minimal activity.
Yes Urja teething is another reason. I guess we still try our best!:)
@ shewta ... she is on bm along with solids.. i am also worried about my milk supply as she is gaining less.. yes n i also add ghee like few drops.. but yes milk i think is much required by babies at this stage..
@ urja..yes there could be many such reasons... as a mothers we have to be positive all d time..
@ Shwetha, I have given him purees of banana, chickoo, carrot, beetroot, potato, sweet potato, dal water + mashed dal in small quantities , rice water, curd, idli, porridges of ragi, rice, flattened rice....
He enjoys solids and easily completes the quantity that I prepare for him.. i expected this to reflect on his weight 🙁🙁
Also, I have no doubt on my milk supply. It is very good and he also takes frequent feeds both in day and night.
@ Roobala That's great then I guess it's because of Activness of babies. My daughter is very finicky.. She loves cereals and fruits though! Gives me hard time when I feed her veggies. I guess she will have sweet tooth!!!! 😁
@ Shilpi eat fenugreek seeds. Read about it. No harm in trying it.
Haii guyzz ...my son also have not gain weight ...I got a chart that is quiet worthy .....
