Stopped feeding 11 month old due to diarrhea, lost lot of weight. What to do ? - Online Doctor Chats
I am Dr. XXXXXXX
Hi doctor, how are you?>
I am fine, Thank you.
How are you doing?
Please proceed with your query.
I have a son who will complete 11 months on 7th this month. His name is AAAAA.
he really lost his chubby look and weight
he is looking very thin and week due to no feeding
So what you are giving him now?
the doctors told that they diagnosed some RS quantity in his motion
he has started eating all solid food...like rice, idly, fruits, good life milk
however, just wondering! is there any food that you can recommend equally; i know not fully, replace mother's milk
He can be given any food which he is able to eat.
some good food or energy drink that can make him regain his weight...
As you said, there is no food which can replace mother's milk.
Please do not give him any energy drink.
we haven't started giving him any meat, however, we have started giving him fish
energy drink like?
It is very unfortunate that he cannot drink mother's milk...what to do? the doctors have advised
There is no energy drinks for children.
He can eat meat and fish.
i read it as please give him ed:-)
any meat like chicken and mutton
I can understand your thoughts.
Yes, chicken and mutton can be given. In small amounts.
Any food you introduce to the child, has to be started in small amounts. And you have to see whether he tolerates it.
If he is not able to tolerate milk, then better would be to avoid it.
Please do not worry about the loss of the chubby looks of your baby.
It will come back.
You just have to follow certain things.
- Give him water or fruit juices often.
- Keep him well fed, with the normal food adults are having.
- Do not start a new food item suddenly. It has to be gradually introduced.
Are you following me?
Hope I have been of some help to you.
We are giving him Papaya as well. Is it ok to give?
He should have at least 3 solid meals a day.
OK doc, thanks a lot. I am more worried about his weight, though.
What is his weight now?
should we stop giving him cerelac and Nestum since we have started giving him rice and other solid food
It is fine to stop them.
Stop gradually while replacing it with normal food.
he was 9 Kg before his diarrhoea at 10 months
we have not checked it after that
What was his birth weight?
I will tell you something.
how does that sound?
There is no correct measure that baby should be of this weight by this age etc.
Roughly a baby may weigh around tripple his birth weight at an age of 1 year.
if so, his weight is perfect i believe
That is normal.
Again, when he is free of infection, if he is given normal food, he will gain weight.
I get the message
Thanks a lot for your help doctor
So, be relaxed.
Enjoy the kid's play.
Hope I have been able to clear your doubts.
definitely, thanks a lot
Thanks for consulting me.
