She pretty good in takin solid foods but not on her milk intake. I hav tried olive oil, yogurt, avocado.. nth can help.. each month oni gain bout 0.25kg.
Answer: There r a few factors to consider when a child has poor weight gain. Is it bcoz of inadequate intake, too much losses e.g diarrhoea and vomiting ; and increased metabolism due to underlying illness. Regardless, they are a proportion of kids who r small but healthy.
You can change the milk to a high calorie one which can be bought at d pharmacy.
She needs to take more of carbohydrate e.g rice, bread, spaghetti. Lots of patience needed coz it wilk take sometime before d child increases in her weight.
