Answer:
During fever or infection, baby has poor appetite and that is the cause of weight loss. As the infection goes, the appetite also comes back and slowly baby starts gaining weight again. If baby is on the path of recovery then offer small feeds, offer soft easily digestible foods, like, porridge, khichadi, curd rice, warm soups, dosas, idlis, Upma, fruit custard etc. Offer milk more often if she has poor appetite for solids.
