Harini, if your child is active and playful.. you can be little bit relaxed. There are some food items that are very good for gaining weight. BUT PLEASE DON'T GIVE ANYTHING TO YOUR CHILD WITHOUT ASKING YOUR CHILD'S PEDIATRICIAN AS YOUR BABY IS VERY SMALL HE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO DIGEST OR SWALLOW ALL FOOD ITEMS . And those are 1) ghee/butter 2)ripe bananas 3)ragi 4) daal 5) egg yolk 6)Soya milk/Soya chunk 7) potatoes etc

Hello Sindhu, ragi is enriched in fibre and iron. Because of the presence of the fibre it is easy to digest. But the level of iron also very high in it.. in some children it causes mild stool stiffness. So keep everything smooth, it is better to give children papayas.

Harini, do a job... in breakfast give him ragi porridge. If l am not wrong, some mothers prefer to give ragi in the breakfast and at lunch as they believe that ragi is cold for the tummy of the babies. After 2 to 3 hours you can give him breastmilk. Dear, my son's pediatrician advised me to give boiled rice, daal and vegetables to my son at his lunch. Before his midday sleep, you can give him once again breastmilk. l give fruits to my son at around 5 in the evening. You can also give fruits like smashed bananas and papayas. Or you can give him boiled apple puree. You can repeat the lunch menu in the dinner. Nurse your baby whenever you wish.

Hello Harini, ragi is little bit filling for babies as it is enriched with fibre. Your baby is very small. .so try to feed him every 2 hourly. Before his midday sleep and at night give him little bit filling food.. rest of the time nurse him 2 hourly if you like to give him breastmilk . Give your baby smashed ripe papaya and apple to regularise his motion. Fruits can be served in the evening. AND NO FORCE FEEDING PLEASE. You can introduce boiled rice,daal and vegetables at lunch and dinner.
