Low baby weight. What to do?

My girl baby is 4 and half months old and the baby weight is only 5.6 kg. Her birth weight was 3.98. She is only on breastfed and throughout the day she vomits the milk out in a curd form. Her doctors confirmed that it is normal. I feel that due to this reason her weight gain is not upto the mark. Please advise what to do about her low baby weight?

  1. Hello and thank you for writing to us.Compared to her birth weight her weight gain is not adequate.What feeds are you giving her?Breast milk or formula feeds?I suugest that you give her Exclusive breast feeding.Avoid formula feeds.Vomiting out milk several times in a day can be due to Gastroesophageal reflux disease. Since your baby is not gaining weight it can be due to this cause. She may need treatment for it.Seek second opinion and get her re-examined.I hope it sincerely hopes.Keep me posted on her health.Good day and take care!
