 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the right weight and height of a 3-year-old? At what age should a child begin school? What should he be eating? My child hasn't gained weight at all in the last year. Could you please tell me why?

Srilata (Cochin, India)

A: The correct weight for 3-year-old is 12 kg, and height is 99 cms. A child should begin school at the age of 3.5 years. After a child turns a year old, you will see changes in weight only once a year as the rate of growth slows down with increasing age.

Dr. Subba Rao

Q: My baby's birth weight was 2.9 kg. After the 7th month it is at 7.2 kg only. The model weight as suggested by you is 8.00kg. How can I increase my baby's weight?

Maya (Gohati, India)

A: Give your child protein supplements, vitamins and calcium. Feed your child little quantities of food, but more often, and allow your baby to indulge in some activity so that he feels hungry and feeds well. Slowly increase his total food intake. Include foods like banana and Cerelac or Farex in his daily food schedule.
