How do I know that the power grabs
Young mothers often worry about whether their baby is eating well and whether it is sufficient supply. For small children, especially infants, often refuse to eat or even fall asleep while feeding. How do we determine the child enough food or not?
Instruction how to find out whether enough power
The first thing you should pay attention - this weight. This is the main indicator. If a child eats well, and he does not lack of breast milk or formula, he is gaining weight. Every day, weigh the child is not necessarily be enough to monitor the addition of the average. In the first six months of life the baby should gain an average of about 800 grams per month. However, it should be noted that if the baby has a health problem, such as birth defects, central nervous system damage, problems with the digestive system, most likely, even with a very good appetite weight baby will not gain.
It is also necessary to pay attention to the child's chair. Normally, babies up to 6 weeks chair should be 3-4 times a day. It should be creamy, yellow, without inclusions crud. A sign of a lack of power can be very loose stools or on the contrary very dense or rare.
If the baby constipation, do not rush to give an enema or laxative, make sure that the child eats enough milk, or a mixture. Estimated daily volume of food for babies up to a month - 500-650ml, 1-5 months - 700-900ml, 5-12 months - 900-1000ml. White clots of milk in a child's chair, suggest that food is digested incompletely. Mom should change your diet if the baby is breastfed and bottle-you must choose a different mixture.
Also determine whether the child enough food, by using the "method of wet diapers." Mom is necessary to count the number of times per day the child urinates. Normally the baby pees 6-8 times a day for newborns number of urination is 20-25 times. In a well-fed child's urine is almost colorless and has no pungent smell. This method is valid only if the crumb receives no fluid except milk or adapted milk formula.
