7mnth old not eating

My almsot 7mnth ol LB is not eating. he drinks two 250ml bottles of milk and 2bowls of 5spoon porridge a day(between 6am and 6h30pm). my concern is that he''s not getting enough food, he''s just refusing to eat anything. is this normal he''s not losing weight, or i hope he''s not...he''s not sleeping also if i add the minutes he sleeps during the day it makes up 1hour.althoug he falls alseep at 7h30pm and wakes up for a feed at 11-12pm and then every hour after that and this makes me tired. Please any advice would be appreciated.
thanking you all in advance.

It does sound as if your baby is indeed hungry at night. This appears to be the reason for him waking like this. You do not mention his weight but he appears to be getting enough milk. Always offer him his solids before giving him his bottle. It may help to give him a 'sweet dreams' formula in the evening. Try him on Novalac SD for his last feed at 11pm.
