Q.

Drinking of Formula

Hi Doc,

Since last week I' ve noticed that my 7 mnth old son is not drinking as much formula. His on NAN 2 and will finish 600ml at most for the day could be less too. He stil eats very very well.
Ive also noticed that some of his stools are a bit loose and there are a few pimples which is really not that much, on his arms, back and legs, under chin and at the back on the neck.
1.What can I do to increas his milk supply?
2.What can these fine pimples be.

Your baby son may not be drinking as much as usual because he is now eating solids and may be full. The pimples you describe seem to be the kind that is due to a heat rash. This occurs most often when babies are dressed too warmly or the room in which they sleep is too warm.
