Ideally your baby should weigh about 8-12kgs, clearly on the lower scale. But that's nothing to be extremely worried about.
Eating healthy foods is the most important way to prevent and treat iron deficiency. Good sources of iron include:
Apricots, Chicken, Turkey, fish, and other meats, Dried beans, lentils, and soybeans, Eggs, Liver, Molasses, Oatmeal, Peanut butter, Prune juice, Raisins, Spinach, kale and other greens.
If a healthy diet does not prevent or treat your child's low iron level and anemia, the paediatrician will likely recommend iron supplements for your child. These are taken by mouth.
Do not give your child iron supplements or vitamins with iron without checking with your child's doctor as he will prescribe the right kind of supplement for your child.
Apart from the things mentioned above give ragi porridge also to your baby as it prevents anemia. Do consult your paediatrician. Take care.
