My child is 4 and half years old girl. She is very thin. How to increase her weight and height?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
We cannot increase height as it is genetic nature and for weight you have to tell her weight to assess her condition. ANyway you need to check her TSH to make sure she does not have hypothyroidism which is a reason for lack of weight gain

He is suffering from constipation.  he should be on a good fibre rich diet. Give plenty of water.  regular laxative if needed along with a good diet plan. As constipation is a chronic problem in most cases and most common cause is habitual constipation.  You must ensure a regular bowel time after a drink irrespective of passage of stool. He should be sitting for sometime say 10_ 15 minutes in a fixed time daily in a Indian style toilet. She appears  to be a fussy eater. Most importantly you need to be patient with her. Don't shout or scream while feeding her. Try to make her feeding time fun or playtime. After not giving any food for 3 hrs at least make him sit with the food he likes (solid foods not pastes or liquids) with spoon and katori or fork. Let him at least play with the food for some time. If he likes milk a lot then try to give solid like plain rice, oats. Chatu. With the pediasure You can have a deal with him. He will take 1 sip milk and 1 bite of something  This way he will learn to chew Threptin  biscuits are good to taste and are rich in protein (casein) Avoid giving him chips fast food Makes small pieces of food  and ask  her to try just 1 bite. If he likes the taste she will have another. If he likes chicken. Give him chicken in different  ways. Introduce him to egg. Boiled or omelette whatever he likes. Play with him till he feels tired. Playing running will improve digestion. Don't loose temper You can give him  one egg a day Cucumbers made into small pieces will help  with problem of flatulence. Children have to deal with new  food, new habits. So they act out. Do not get flustered if he criesmakes a scene. Sit quietly, go to another room, ignore him. He will learn that bad behaviour  will not allow him to get her own way. I know it's very difficult but keep trying as that's the best you can give him. Pain  abdomen  may be due indigestion earmarked, gastritis. Good hand hygiene: Regular nail trimming Washing hand after each toilet visit. And before taking any food in any form Also take care of drinking water quality. Test Adviced: CBC with AEC Stool and urine R/E, M/E USG abdomen Share the reports if any Kindly do the follo You can check out the Health blog I manage with my wife. It has many helpful tips. The VIP Resource library gives you lifetime (free access) to many  childcare, parenting tips.

Diapers can be used all the time. Rashes and skin infections only come when wet and dirty diapers are not changed frequently.

This weight is less than normal weight at this age. But ther is nothing to fear. You should not feed in bottle but feed with a spoon or baby sipper. Cerelac and other homemade semi solids can be started from 4th month onwards

Your problem is due to faulty dietary habits. Give him home made wholesome meals at frequent intervals wrapped in love & affection. Do not bribe him for eating have patience. He will recover in 3-4 months.
