What should be ideal weight of 2 weeks baby girl? - Online Doctor Chats
1. What will be wight of 2 weeks baby girl? 2. My baby is sleeping most of the time even mother tries to feed her, she is taking milk once 4 or 5 hours, Is is normal? when she is born weight is 3.2 kg after 6 days it was 2.6
how can I help you?
Initially the weight decreases
and by 2 weeks the weight comes back to the birth weight
means from 3rd week onwards ?
No, by 15 days the weight would have returned to the birth weight
and after that the weight should go on increasing daily
My baby is sleeping most of the time even mother tries to feed her, she is taking milk once 4 or 5 hours, Is is normal ?
Babies sleep for 20 hours in a day
that is quite normal for them]
You should wake her up every two hours and feed
Babies drink more milk in the night
so your wife should wake up every 2 hours once in the night and feed your baby
Ok, Thank You Very Much Sir
your baby will also cry more in the night
it is normal, don't think she is not getting milk
don't give her any formula
don't give any honey or such things
don't ever feed from a bottle
You are welcome
at any cost
actually my wife is not getting enough milk ?
don't think like that
a mother can feed 3 babies without any problem
she will prodcue more milk if she feeds her baby more
even baby sucks for 40 mins, she is crying ?
there is nothing called "no enough milk"
you should feed your baby from one side first for 20 minutes
and then only change the side
more feeding will increse the milk production
so don't worry
encourage your wife to feed more
and tell her to relax and feed her baby
tell your wife that feeding more, like every 2 hours once will increase the milk production
and if she doesn't know how to hold the baby while feeding, then she should consult a neonatologist and ask her/him to teach her how to hold the baby while feeding
yes, i will do that Sir
this is very important
the position of the baby while feeding is very important
so, please visit a neonatologist nearby
ok , sir
which city do you live in?
now my baby and wife staying in a small town
that is Giddalur in Andhra Pradesh
tell your wife to hold your baby close to her chest
and she should support the neck, back and bottom of the baby with her one hand
and baby should be turned towards her mother
not just the face, but the whole body of the baby should be turned towards the mother
and your wife should hold your baby like that while feeding, close to her chest
yes sir, now is doing in this direction only sire
I would advise you to consult a neonatologist tomorrow or day after tomorrow
yes, i will plan it sir
find out if there is a neonatologist in any city near to that village
That is enough for now sir, if any thing is there i will ask again. Thank You Very Much sir
