Weight gain tips pls for 9mon preemie with health condition
« on: February 03, 2013, 12:21:24 pm »

Hi Mommies,

Mom po ako baby Yvan who has Broncho Pulmonary Dysplasia. He is now 9 months old and yet weighs 4.7 kgs. sobta liit for his age to accpet the fact na premature siya and he's seriously sick. Baka lang may ma-share kayo na ano kung pwede gawin na maka-gain siya ng weight. Since birth he's taking heraclene, and 4 vitamins a day. Hindi pa siya pwede sa solid kasi naka oxygen parin siya and sinusuka niya lahat everytime he eats cereals and fresh mashed kalabasa and potatoes with malunggay. Sobrang struggle na ako pano siya tataba, though nasa genes namin na hindi tabain pero para sa kanya na baby pa. I think this is one of the most complications ng sakit niya.

Anyone can suggest mga mommies..many thanks!

hi sis. anong sabi ng pedia mo? may nirecommend ba syang high-calorie milk? how is his feeding? i gave birth to a 630 grams premie baby. since 26 weeks lang ako when i gave birth to him, he didnt know how to suck. he stayed in the hosp for 3 months after he was born. we brought him home with a nasal gastric tube (NGT).  force-fed sya kaya madaling nagcatch-up yung weight. although nung natuto na syang magsuck at tinanggal na yung NGT, we have to give him high-calorie milk kase konting gatas lang yung iniinom niya.

@mommy ni Kent: Salamat sis, done doing this cgro for 2 months na am pa nga ginagamit kongwater sa kanya para may carb din e.

@karendsee: andami na nila nabigay na formula milk even yung similac liquid formula kais mataas yung calorie content, ang naging problema ayaw ni baby Yvan, kahit gutom siya hindi niya iinumin kasi yung lasa ayaw niya. Ano milk yan high-calorie na yan sis?

ok naman sya ngayon, thank god. but last nov-dec, yung appetite niya sa milk nabawasan kase twice sya nagka-UTI. so for one a half months, sobrang liit ng weight gain. dati kase alternate with another brand of milk pa, binibigay ko. tapos ginawa ko, s26 premgro na lahat. tapos in between feeding, yung 1/3 nung jar ng heinz na baby food. ayun, 20-30 grams ang weight gain niya per day. i weigh him kase every 3 days. ngayon, average milk intake niya in a day is 550 ml.

try mo yung barley sis, meron nabibili nun sa bottle then titimplahin nalang sia.. madami nutrients un sis.. i heard din na mabisa sia sa mga illness.. try mo sis tignan sa net.. wala naman siguro masama if itry mo since organic naman sia..or if may barley grass dyan try mo nalang pakuluaan din then ihalo mo sa milk din niya....

Mahirap Talagang mag gain ng weight preemies especially Kung may health complications pa. I know kasi I have three preemies. The thing is as long as may progress kahit unti unti Lang that's good na. You really can't expect them to catch up agad sa ka age niya because he has to learn a lot of things na instinct Lang sa ibang babies like crying breathing feeding. No worries by age 2 you won't be able to tell na preemie siya. Heraclene is a good start plus there are milk formulas for catch up growth especially made for low birth weight infants. My twins nga almost 2 na nang naglakad, same with their kuya, tapos almost three na madalang pa rin ang words. I worry sometimes, but I always remember to thank God that they survived. My eldest is 9 already, and with all the complications when he was born, I am proud to say that he is almost as tall as his father and a consistent honor student.i did not see hat coming since he was just 3 lbs 6 oz when he was born and did not make eye contact till he was 2.
