I hope you are doing well. Premature babies grow slowly but grow up to be healthy adults. In fact, her weight is good for a premature baby,hence there is nothing to worry, he is growing up normally. Here is a diet. On waking up-Breast milk/formula feed Breakfast- Ragi porridge/oats porridge/daliya porridge/stewed apple/pear/mashed banana Naptime Lunch- Dal soup/Rice kanji or mashed rice mixture/Thin vegetable khichdi/Pureed carrots Breastfeed/formula milk Dinner- Vegetable soup/Mashed potato or sweet potato/Rice kanji/Dal soup/Oats porridge Breast milk
