Answer:

Dear Parent,

Ideally weight is not a parameter for good health. Weight is just monitored to check whether the child is getting a good diet upto the age of one, after that height is seen to assess the growth. You will probably have a growth chart where you can map both height and weight to see the growth. If both height and weight are not increasing , then it is an issue of concern. Also, remember weight can be genetic driven too. Compare your weight at the age that your child is now.

Having said that, if the child is grossly underweight, I would suggest you take her to a doctor to rule out any deficiencies or other things.

 

Regards,

Dr. Parmar
