4 Months Old Girl | Oct 22
My daughter is 4.5 months old EBF and 4 kg. She appears too thin and is always playful and doesn't take feed properly. Is her weight okay. How can I make her have more milk.
what was her birth weight. her current weight is less she should have gained at least 2 kg than birth weight. if she had low birth weight then it's fine. about feeding make sure you have enough bm. always feed from one side of breast till baby gets hind milk which full of fat and helps baby to gain weight. if she is always playful and easily gets distracted while feeding then feed her alone in calm and dark place. make sure no one should be there to distract her no noise etc. make sure she takes enough sleep minimum 11 hours is required. more is better. if you feel that your bm is less then you can start formula milk after consulting your doctor. if you started fm pls continue bm also do not stop. when she complete 6 months start solid food which help her to gain food much faster.
Check her daiper... she should pee at least 8 times... it can be more than 15 times also... also check urine color, if it is normal then it may be fine.... but still consult ur doctor.... baby’s should be double the birth weight in 6 months.. doctors not only check baby weight, they also check how social ur baby is....don’t worry...girls weigh low than boy babies..
