Hi lybrate-user, thank you for your qjery. Generally birth weight doubles by 6 months of age and trebles by 1 year of age. For example, if a baby born with 3 kg weight, baby will be 6 kgs at 6 months and 9 kgs by 1 year of age. Give her breast feeds and continue to give complimentary feeds 3 to 4 times in a day. Make feeds calorie rich by adding a few drops of ghee or edible oil. Hope I have answered your concerns. Regards, Dr. E venkata ramana.

Know The Causes Behind Stunted Growth In Children!

Everyone wants their babies to healthy and grow up to be a healthy-wealthy person. However, little they focus on this issue or are capable of giving their infants the best of medical standards. Problems show up in children early and if overlooked, may hamper their future life a lot. Constant check-ups are necessary to be it pre-birth or post the birth of a baby, and for this, a parent should always be in contact of a pediatrician.
Pediatrics is the medicinal branch that involves the health care of babies, children, and adolescents. It is recommended that people should be under pediatric care up to age 21. Pediatricians are involved with important tests that are standardized by World Health Organisation Child Growth Standards.

Stunted Growth Of Infants and Children
Also known as nutritional stunting, it is a distinctive reduced growth rate in human body development. Stunted growth is the primary manifestation of undernutrition (or malnutrition) and recurrent infections after birth and early childhood. Another main reason is the malnutrition during fetal development brought by a malnourished mother. The accurate definition of stunting according to WHO stands for the “height for age” value to be lower than two standard deviations of World Health Organisation Child Growth Standards.

In 2012, an estimated 25 percent of children under 5 years of age i.e. ~162 million children were stunted. More of this count nearing 90 percent lies only in two continents, Africa and Asia. The affected children may never regain their loss of height, and most of them will never gain the equal weight.

Health effects
Apart from shorter stature, the adolescent may get hit by the greater risk of illness, delayed mental development, lowered cognitive capacity and women with stunted growth have a higher risk of complications during delivery due to the smaller pelvis, and the child could have low birth weight during birth.

Causes of Stunted growth
Apart from malnutrition and some rare genetic disorders, South Asia and most developing nations are having a higher number of stunted children due to poor maternal nutrition, poor feeding practices, and poor sanitation.

Maternal nutrition
Poor breastfeeding during pregnancy and maternal nutrition could be a leading cause for the stunted growth of the child. Also, women who are suffering from anemia or are underweight during pregnancy are more likely to perpetuate the intergenerational transmitting of stunting.

Sanitation
Ingestion of a high number of fecal bacteria through the soiled finger in a poorly sanitized area leads to intestinal infections. This affects the nutritional status of his/her by diminishing appetite, reducing nutrition absorption and increasing nutrient loss.

Feeding practices
Inadequate feeding, lack of vital nutrients, poor calorie intake can lead to stunted growth. Minimum requirements should be met in the diet in proper frequency to avoid malnutrition.

A Note for feeding mothers
Lactating mothers should get themselves proper nutrition, and if they are in doubt of their health should postpone the decision of having a child.

Chronic diarrhoea, Celiac disease, thyroid disorders and growth hormone deficiency also contribute, significantly, to short stature. Regular measurement of height & weight on a growth chart by a trained Pediatrician helps to pick up the lags in these vital growth and development parameters.

What you say mucus in chest may be throaty sounds/ sounds from blocked noses. If there is really mucus in chest you must give treatment.

Before expecting results from medicines, you should check whether you are creating some obstacles in her feeding, like force feeding, excessive milk intake, excessive fruits intake.you have to control these factors before giving any medication

I have high prolactin level of 30.94. I am unmarried. kindly suggest is it very alarming. What can be done to reduce it?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Please check your thyroid function test, because if there is uncontrolled hypothyroidism then even prolactin level also goes up. If that is not there then we may have to look at other reasons for hyperprolactinemia. And treatment for it. Thanks.

Suffering from pricking pain on right breast here and there .also having pain near armpit that come and goes. Mostly pain on front part of breast. Am prior to periods and also breastfeeding.

MD - Diabetology, Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS), MBBS

As you have given your gender as "male" I assume you have asked this question on behalf of your wife. Also, you haven't mentioned her age. I assume she is young, as she is breastfeeding. Many women have a slight discomfort in their breasts, commonly during periods and less commonly, during breastfeeding. Some might have even pain. However, it is still worthwhile to consult a surgeon immediately.

Dear lybrate-user, breastfeeding is the best option but if breast milk is not sufficient, you can give supplementary milk.

My baby is 6 months old n we r going for painless vaccination. I just wanna know is it safe for baby or not.

Pediatrician, Chennai
My baby is 6 months old n we r going for painless vaccination. I just wanna know is it safe for baby or not.
Hi lybrate-user! Recently many people are coming up with doubts about painless vaccination. I would like to tell you that apart from oral polio drops and rotaviral vaccine, every vaccine is an injection which involves prick with needle. Of course it is going to give some pain to your child for that moment. Nowadays combination vaccines come with 4 to 5 components so that your child will be pricked only once or twice and not 4 to 5 times. Hope this helped you.
