Hi Aarti,

Welcome to HCM.

Best way for your child to gain weight is by regularly breast feeding the child and avoiding all food supplements, at least for four months.

Mother's milk is the best food for an infant.

After 6 months of age you may start with food supplements such as cerelac, farex etc.

Feed the baby when he demands, and don't worry about weight gain. Baby knows best when he requires to be fed.

Wishy you happy rearing.
