9 month old baby losing weight. How to manage?

Hello doctor, I am a 9 month old baby girl’s mom. She had breast feed till 6 and half month then she always suck her finger and refuses to feed so I give nan formula but she drinks 90 ml. She has to be in 7.5 kg weight bracket. I am so worried about my babies weight. She used to weigh 8 kgs at 5 months but she has lost her weight. She eats well but no weight gain. Please give advice.

  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    With your description, your child is only on formula milk and complimentary foods has not been introduced yet. She has lost weight too. It's not good for the baby. You should consult your doctor for child's general check up to evaluate her for deficiencies of calcium and iron or vitamins and for nutritional counseling.
