How do you fix the passive voice in this sentence

I wrote this sentence:

Because of his low weight, Gabe was still being nurtured instead of being named.

And Word underlined the bold part saying I was using passive voice and I don’t know how to fix it.

Passive voice is not part of the assignment, but I need two prepositional phrases.


Since Gabe is a small baby and thus does nothing, you need to bring in another subject to avoid passive voice. His parents, his mother, his doctors….
