Q.

Appetite

I have a problem my eight month old daughter is slightly underweight, and fusses a lot when she has to eat. She usually starts well but always cries when she has to finish. She has Nestum/ cereals in the morning and vegetable purity for lunch then yoghurt late afternoon and soft porridge for supper. She refuses to take formula and is still breastfed. I express about 360ml daily and breastfeed her at night. I am even thinking about supplementing her meals with Vi daylin. Should I consult dietician, or what advise can you give me?

The only reason why I am a bit concerned about your daughter's eating is because she is underweight.It would be best to consult yor nearest baby clinic for advice.
