The Twins from Phule Nagar
Roshan and Rohan Jaiswal are twins form our Phule Nagar clinic. Roshan’s birth weight was 1.30 kg and Rohan’s birth weight was 1.40 kg, they were born at home. Their mother brought them to the FMCH 1000 Days’ clinic when they were just 2 days old since she was worried about their weight and growth.
The mother was counseled regarding effective breast-feeding by the FMCH nurse and the FMCH nutritionist. After just one round of counseling, the weight of the children showed improvement. Through regular follow-ups and counseling we made sure that the mother was exclusively breast-feeding the children and did not uses any pre – lacteals feeds or formulas.
Now, at the age of 2 months, their weight has improved significantly, where Roshan weighs 4.29 kg and Rohan weighs 3.9 1kg. Both the children are now under the ‘Well Child’ category as per WHO growth reference standards
