Post a reply: Discharge criteria for SAM infants <6m who are not breastfed?

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

Hi, With a non-breastfed infant less than 6 months can anyone tell me what the discharge criteria should be? For >6m it is 15% weight gain but is this the same for <6m? According to Module 2 on IFE it is 85% of the median weight / length and has remained so for 3 days but is this still a valid measurement and what if the child is less than 45cm? Thanks
