I ask on the scales: excess weight in infants

To begin with, any healthy newborn has so-called self-regulation mechanisms of nutrition. This means that it is impossible to overfeed the baby, he will eat exactly as much as he needs, and if something extra gets into his tummy, he will most likely burp it off within an hour.

It happens that in the first months after birth, children are especially intensively gaining weight, creating a certain reserve for themselves, and then they begin to slow down – this is considered to be an individual feature of a very small metabolism.

Kids who hurry up with birth or born with a small weight (less than 2,700 g) “have the right” to recover more actively: by 4-6 months (maximum for a year) they need to catch up with their peers.

The same child who has big parents will most likely be ahead of his peers. However, if the increase per month does not exceed 1 500 g, you can not worry. If, within a few months, the baby recovers by more than 1.5 kg, most likely it is about eating the wrong diet or a broken metabolism.

And in that and in another situation consultation of the doctor is required: the excess weight can lead to an overload of the internal organs.

In some cases, in order to understand the reason for the appearance of excess weight, you need to pass a baby’s blood sugar test and consult an endocrinologist. This will definitely need to be done by those children who have had diabetes cases in the family or if one of the parents of the child is familiar with the problem of overweight (obesity).

What will the doctor advise the parents? If you feed your baby with your milk, try to limit or completely abandon chocolate, cakes, pies, cakes, buns, sweet soda, sweets, french fries, creamy ice cream, fatty meat delicacies, sweet curds, glazed cheese curds.

Mayonnaise, sauces, butter require extra care. If a child eats mother’s milk substitutes, pay attention to the mixture you give your baby: some products are designed for babies with low weight and contain more calories.

If, immediately after birth, the child was eating just such a mixture, and then began to gain weight well, carefully replace it with a regular one. In addition, with age, you need to move on to other “stages” of nutrition: the initial foods are usually made more nutritious.

As for complementary foods, complete babies are given it in the same way as the rest. The only restriction, which, however, applies to all children: up to two years should not be given a small semolina.
