I am pleased to be able to tell you that your baby son's weight is excellent. His weight is slightly above the average weight for a baby boy of 7 months.He does not need extra vitamins. At present he is quite happy with his formula alone but you can try to start him on a cereal now.Only offer him one new solid food at a time and wait until he is happy to eat each new food before trying the next one. Do not worry if he refuses to eat it at first.He will start eating when he is ready.

Good day Doc, my 10 months baby girl does not like food. Each time we try to feed her she spits it out and cries. She does not want to drink water. How can I boost her appetite. She weighs 10kg.
