Brief Answer: Give only mothers feed Detailed Answer: Hello, 5 kg is less but depends on the birth weight .Actually it is the decrease or the stagnation in birth weight rise which is problematic. Secondly there should not be a decrease in weight in past few days or having a fever or not taking feeds properly or not playing normally . The best feed is only mothers milk. There is no need to give any other supplement it might put extra strain on babys liver or intestines or kidneys. In spite of giving baby anything extra ,you take extra milk and nutritious diet ,eat fruits . NO need for any syrup to small baby. If the child is playing normally then do not worry. In doubt do reply
