If your baby is not drinking enougb formula every day you do need to be worried.He does not need any other fluid yet. You need to find a formula that he will drink during the day as well.Try him on Lactogen2 or NAN Pelargon.Start all over again with his solids with rice cereal as his cereal and offer him vegetables such as butternut and fruit such as apple or pear. Gradually introduce other new foods such as chicken and lamb.
