Also look at his activity levels like if he is lethargic or active during d day. u cud give iron to him if he is anameic.

Hi Sonal! Ur concerns r quite valid. Pls look for reasons for low weight. it cud be due to worms. so u cud try deworming d child. it is advisable pls analyse his diet n see how much calories he is taking everyday. how much fat, protein, carbohydrates, fibre he is taking. u cud take d help of a dietician. It is advisable pls add carbohydrates n fats to his diet which help in wt gain. if he has the problem of constipation u cud increase his salads n water intake.
