If child is LBW, I’m sure a paediatrician must have mentioned some multivitamin, calcium and vitamin D at discharge. If not , please contact me for exact dosage.
Next Steps
Breastfeeding is sufficient for a LBW baby as he/she needs small amounts of milk every 2 hours or on demand
Health Tips
There are many brands in the market used for babies less than 6 months. However I suggest disuse of such products due to high chances of loose motions , infection , reduction in mothers milk production and nipple confusion .
