Baby weight

Good day, my son is a year and 3 months old. he is currently on parmalat 1st growth milk. he eats well too, but for some reason he is not gaining any weight. Im think of putting him back on NAN 3? do you have any recommendations please?

Hi doc

i am very dissapointed by the fact that my 5 year olds teacher says my child will have to repeat Grade R due to her not participating in class,

how do we determine if a child is fit for grade 1,
at home she is very active, talks responds and does well, she is very talkative with around people she knows but extreemly shy at school, what could be the problem.

Hi, im not 100% sure what his weight is, but i''ll find out from the clinic, when he goes next week.
Secondly, is there anything i can buy from the pharmacy to build up my son, maybe something i can throw in his current milk?
