Q.

10 month milk intake

HI Doc, thanks for your always valuable advice.
My 10 month old weighs 10 kg, and his weight appears to flutctuate each week, although now keeping at 10kg and over. Some days he refuses to drink milk. After being on Nan LF formula, he is now on S26 no.2 for the last 2 months and is responding well to it, but I''m not sure if he is drinking enough milk for his age. During the day he will have about 100ml and at night at least 300 ml, in total 400ml milk a day. SOmedays the intake is even less.
He does drink other liquids like water and juice during the day.
He also eats well, although at times will skip a meal. I try not to worry about this as he generally does eat well.

Also, the 5 yr old son is now having jockeys itch. What can I use to ease the discomfort and itch?

Many thanks - R

You are very welcome.Your son's weight is well above the average weight of 9.2kg for a baby boy of 10 months. He is drinking rather less milk than expected,but seems to be thriving on his present overall diet.His total fluid intake is probably adequate as well. There is no need to change anything.
