    Dear All,
    Had an apptmt with paed yesterday.While LO was gaining upto 900 gm per month so far, I was disheartened to see that last 15 days he has gained only 300 gm:(BTW, he is rolling over a lot...is this drop in weight gain due to enhanced physical activity?I give him ragi porridge in the morning and he has about 28 oz of FM and 1 oz of juice everyday...pead says no issues with weight.LO is four months old.Please let me know the possible reasons for this...

    Deepa.

    Deepa,

    I guess that is normal. I remember reading somewhere that between 4-6 months, kids gain about 1.5-2 pounds of weight. Then there is a growth spurt at 6 months. My LO is also 4 months and she has gained somewhat the same weight as you have mentioned. It is normal as long as your LO doubles his birth weight by 5-6 months and triples his birth weight in a year.

    Somebody more experienced in this might add onto this or correct me, if i am wrong :)
