# Formula for Calculating Baby Weight

I often see novice mothers asking if their baby’s weight is normal. Too fat or too thin, parents do not have a reference standard. So, for babies of all ages, what kind of weight is normal? You can refer to the following calculation formula to calculate by yourself:

Babies within 6 months: weight (kg) = birth weight (kg) + age × 0.6;

Babies aged 7 ~ 23 months: weight (kg) = birth weight (kg) + age × 0.5;

Babies aged 2 ~ 7: weight (kg) = age × 2 +8.

Generally, it is within the range of standard weight ± standard weight × 10%.

Exceeding [standard weight + standard weight × 20%] is mild obesity;

Exceeding [standard weight + standard weight × 50%] is severe obesity.

Below [standard weight-standard weight × 15%] is mild emaciation;

Below [standard weight-standard weight × 25%] is severe emaciation.

Obesity may damage children’s circulation, respiration, digestion, endocrine, immune and other system organs, and even affect intelligence quotient, behavior, psychology and sexual development. Although fleshy children are cute, parents must learn to control their children’s weight and start scientific feeding from birth.

At the age of 0 ~ 3, You can’t feed too much, Don’t nurse the baby when you see it crying. When the baby grows up, To teach him to slow down to eat, eat less high fat, high starch food and sweets, at the same time let the child develop the habit of exercise. However, it should be noted that some diseases can also cause obesity. Therefore, if the child’s weight does not improve significantly after diet and exercise intervention, he should seek medical treatment in time to find out the reason.

If the baby is underweight, First of all, we should strengthen nutrition. It is suggested to eat a small amount and many Eat about 6 times a day, Breakfast, morning snacks, lunch, afternoon snacks, dinner, snacks before sleep. When the baby’s appetite is poor, Can supplement vitamins and minerals in an appropriate amount. For children over 2 years old, snacks before meals, milk juice and other water intake will also affect appetite. Don’t let children develop the habit of playing while eating, so as not to affect digestion and absorption. In addition, ear infection, asthma, digestive diseases, metabolic disorders and so on should be treated in time.
