2 year child weighs 9 kg. Trying to increase weight. Guidance? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you today?
I've questions related to pediatrics, could you help me, or should I try for the specialist ?
I am a general physician and I can help you within my expertise
my son is 2 years just completed, his born weight is 2.3, currently his weight is 9+, we're trying to increase weight
It can be increased by increasing the calories in his diet
he's very adamant to take the Milk, we're tried many combinations I mean different flavours, doctors always say to try with different combinations
Is it something kids will avoid MILk ?
Is he being bottle-fed?
Yes some kids can be picky.
You can try other dairy products and soy-based products
currently I'm trying with Pediasure - with choclat flavour, he heistate that too
Ice-cream, cheese, butter, ghee are the examples of high calorie milk products.
in other forms ?
I think we should just stick to plain cow's milk
Or BUFFALO MILK HAS MORE CALORIES
Buffalo milk can replace cow's milk
that's actually good for kids -- it's not too fat in the milk
It can make sure that we are giving him more nutrition while keeping the amount of milk same.
If we want to increase the weight of babies then increasing fats helps
this apetic tonics are really worth to take ?
to increase apet ?
we're practising for a quite months,
I think he is growing ok as per his birth weight
But to make him gain more weight in lesser time we need to add calories and fat in his diet.
Which tonic are you giving him?
wait a sec ..
also we're tried CYPON
for tonic also he's taking for few weeks then that doesn't work further
if any new taste or food work for few days, after that he hesitate to take
he really needs different tasts
First thing is that he needs to get off the tonics
They can be more harmful than good
Kids love to take different foods throughout the day
Thus it can be hard work for the caregiver
We need to adjust the food according to their taste especially if the kid is picky eater
We also need to keep trying different foods
If he rejects one food, then try it again in a few days
Do you have any question?
