kids as they grow will loose weight since they grow vertically
Doctor :  
they put on more bone mass
User :  
infact when we bring milk near her she peeps into the tumbler but my observation is that maybe its the white color that makes her not to drink or its the smell of the mother dairy milk
Doctor :   youm could try adding some added

Doctor :  
flavourin agents

User :  
is it not too early to give her these

Doctor :  
ok
User :  
the whole day she eats only daliya and dal chawal
User :  
but i want her to gain weight
User :  
i must bring to your notice that she was born a month before
User :  
and her one of the valves in the heatr was not fully closed
Doctor :  
no that will be possible at a laterstage when the vertical growth stops
Doctor :   she was premature by one month

Doctor :  
and one of the valves was not closed
User :  
it was not closed completely so a wheezing sound used come when she breathed
Doctor :  
so that should be with the consult of the pediatrician who can do the
Doctor :  
exam and he will be in a better position to herlp
User :  
though her ped says its perfect now but i at times get worried about her due her weight loss

no thats a normal phenomena

User :  
also doc please tell me my daughter starts sweating heavily in head while the rest of us are feeling cold
Doctor :  
then it shoud not be a problem
User :  
what does this mean
Doctor :  
does that occur all the time or when she is physically active
User :  
no it happens when she sleeping or most of times when she is taking my feed
