How much should a six month infant weigh? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
My baby is 6 months old...
She does at least 4 motions in a day and hence there is no considerable weight gain...
is it normal?
The number of stools in a day varies in babies. If the stools are well formed and not watery
generally there is no serious problems considered.
What is her current weight and the weight at birth?
the stool is normal and formed...
As I see the child is putting on good weight. Weight of the child at 6 months will be about twice the weight at birth.
So in my opinion the child seems to be doing well.
Did some one mention that the weight is low?
she is doing well but we think that her weight is low...
Medically her weight is adequate for her age and birth weight.
So don't be worried.
Do you have any other question?
can you suggest some good healthy diet for her which will also help for weight gain...
It is time to start weaning food at 6 months.
Is she already on soft food?
Or is it only milk?
ya, we have started soft food for her...
At this age she is fit to eat soft fruits like mashed apples, potatoes, rice, lentils, ragi/millet preparation, egg yolk, fish (if you are non vegetarian).
Start slowly and gradually.
Along with it continue breast feeding.
