Q.

BABY NOT PICKING UP WEIGHT

Good Day Doc,

My 18 month baby hasn't picked up weight since Jan this year. I've queried this with his peaditrician- he told me that the baby's body doesn't show that-irrespective of what my concern is the baby is growing fine.

As per baby's nanny during the day, the baby is eating fine he's having all the meals . The baby is not thin or look under nourised-hes just OK. His current weigh is 11.9

Should i continue worrying about this? Is this normal?

Please advice Doc

Your baby's weight is above the average expected weight at his age, so there is no need to worry here. Carry on and relax, your son is doing well.
