If Your Baby’s Weight Is Low;
Dear mothers, Your child could be underweight. First of all, I would ask you not to worry and sit back and continue reading the suggestions.
We mentioned that you should give your baby breast milk for the first 6 months. The baby who cannot get breast milk for various reasons should be fed with formula. At 6 months, complementary foods are gradually introduced , but until the age of 2, your baby’s main meal is still breast milk. Complementary foods are your baby’s snacks.
More information on additional nutrients can be found in our article on 6 month old baby nutrition.
First of all, you should find out the reason for your baby’s low weight. You can progress by observing your baby and consulting the doctor who monitors your baby’s development.
If your baby has no appetite, so he cannot gain weight and is low; First of all, remind yourself that your baby will eat when hungry and will not starve.
Every baby’s appetite is different. Some babies eat less and are more picky. You have to make eating fun for your hungry baby. However, this does not mean eating with television or commercials.
You can prepare fun plates for him to make eating fun. While eating, you can talk about things your baby will love.
Attention! Check to see if your baby is zinc and iron deficient. Zinc and iron can cause loss of appetite.
We do not recommend giving your baby syrups that increase appetite. Appetite-enhancing syrups can cause allergies in some babies. Do not use without consulting your doctor.
Feed your anorexia’s baby. Make an effort to provide nutritious foods. Keep away from empty energy sources. It is wrong to give unhealthy foods to your baby to gain weight. You can make nutritious recipes for your baby at home by yourself.
If Your Baby Is Overweight;
Being overweight often means that you are well fed in our society. Actually, it is not quite true, because;
In the researches; It has been determined that most of the various diseases such as diabetes, coronary heart diseases and some cancer types seen in adults are related to wrong eating habits in childhood.
First of all, you should observe why your baby is gaining weight. Where is he doing wrong? or is it done?
Your baby takes you as an example in nutrition, as in everything else. You should be a guiding guide in order to give your baby healthy eating habits .
Try to keep your baby away from empty energy sources and junk food. Be careful about forbidden foods before 1 year old.
Remember, your baby will not know the taste of any food unless you introduce it!
If your baby is under a year old, make them without salt; if they are over a year old, make them less salty. Remind yourself that sugar is an empty source of energy and your baby does not need sugar at all. You can substitute nutritious foods like molasses for sugar.
Finally, I suggest you learn how to feed your baby according to the month and seek help from an expert.
