Answer:
Hi Preethi, the weight of the baby seems fine. There is no absolute weight for the babies below one year of age which is considered healthy. There is a range of weight and generally birth weight of the baby is considered.The baby should be consistently gaining weight. If the baby doubles her birth weight by 5 months and triples by one year, it means the weight gain is good. Few dietary suggestions are You can give porridge of suji, sago, dalia, rice flakes, ragi etc. Fruit smoothie especially made of banana/mango and malai, milk/curd Boiled & mashed potato , boiled sweet potato with a little butter, Scrambled egg yolk with added milk, egg nog or egg added to soup Dal-roti/rice mashed, dalia dal khichdi. Add extra spoon of ghee/butter/oil to their dishes. Fruit yogurt made of full-fat milk, Full-fat milk based puddings like rice kheer/dates& raisins(cooked & mashed) custard/vermicelli kheer/gajar kheer
