Weight & Height Issue
Created by Updated on Sep 29, 2013
My son Aarav is 10. 5 months old, his weight is approx 7. 2 kg & height is 71 cms. I am really worried about his weight. I give him proper meal which includes cow milk (app 300 ml a day), breast milk, breakfast (apple, white portion of egg in small quantity etc), khichdi or dal in the noon time, cerelac in the evening, then a veg + chappati app half cup at night. Few other snacks sometimes. He is not gaining weight as required. He is very active child, walks, stand by supporting table, bed or sofa & cann't sit at a place. He also takes sound sleep. Please suggest.

Dear Ruchi, As you said he is very active... Kids BMR is always very high and as per my pediatrician as long as kid is active one should not worry coz this indicated he is healthy otherwise he might have been lethargic and sleepy. Give him Ghee in dal khichadi, Chapati with ghee inside as Ghee is very helpful in kids for brain development also. I have been through this stressful stage and it's not worth honestly. instead worrying all the time start enjoying his activities. I am sure other mums will agree with me. He is active thats a sign he is heALTHY.

totally agree with deepti....... as far as the child is active, u should'nt worry fr the weight ......i have a one and half year old daughter n she weighs jus 9 kgs.... but she is very active.... after consulting almost 5 peds, i came to this conclusion that its mere wastage of time n effort worrying bout the weight gain and not enjoying there growing up phase......... its all bout the body structure..... some kids r lean some kids are chubby........ so dont worry ruchi...... happy motherhood...... :)
