Q.

Milk

Good day doctor, my son is almost 8 months old. He eats very well, loves his veggies and finger foods. He is however not so interested in his milk any more. He wil have some in his cereal and the most of a bottle at night. He is on Nan Pelargon. He is healthy and gaining weight. Eats 3 meals a day with snacks. Is this ok?

Your son's main source of nutrition at his age should be his milk. He is gaining weight and seems healthy and happy but he should be having his formula more often. Give him his formula before his solids and don't give him any snacks which seem to be filling him up.
