hello my daughter is 6 months old. I am worried about her weight gain. she is very thin as compared to infants of her age. I started on her solids when she was 5 months old. currently I am feeding her rice Cerelac, wheat and Apple Cerelac, Suji kheer, daliya, moong dal khichdi with daliya aur rice, tomato and carrot soup. also she remains constipated all the time. she is having Amul double toned Milk 5 to 6 times a day (90-125ml per feeding) and solids 2 times a day. kindly suggest me with something that can help her in weight gain.

Thanks for ur reply Anupama. Surely I will start with more veggies, hope it will help ease constipation. Yes she is catching up with milestones though.

Dear Mansi.. fr 6 mths old baby u r feedin her properly infct all dese items r gud enough fr her diet at dis stage.. as far as weight gain is concerned its nt necessary dat every child gain like othrs its all genetic n body make up wich matters... apart frm cerelac n khichdi pls include more veggies n fruits fr fibre.. like banana, apple mash, pear mash, chikoo mash, potato mash, carrot puree n othr veggies like lauki, pumpkin mix veggie soup.. this all vil help in constipation.. include boiled water in her diet nw as she is 6 mths.. Jst look fr her milestones if she is achievin dem on tym n is active like othr babies soo not much to worry abt weight See ur doc if u stil feel she is underweight
