Hello,some low birthweight babies takes time to gain weight , ,repeated infection makes child weak and failure to thrive .You should have breastfed baby for 6 months exclusively .Now add little ghee to his food , give him a egg , if you are non vegetarian you can give him that also, some children gain weigh during adolescence .
