Q.

Lost weight

My baby is now 6.5 months old. He started eating solids well, last week he didn''t want to eat anything, but was having his milk. He was not sick or teething. Due to him not eating for a couple of days he lost weight. How can he pick up his weight again, is there any multivitamins I can give him?

This can happen from time to time and the main thing is that is now eating again. He may have been teething and this put him off his food. Make sure that he takes his formula which is his main source of nutrition at his age. He will not need any vitamins as his formula is fortified with vitamins and he is eating solids as well.
