My baby boy is 9 months old. Recently, I noticed that he has lost some weight (approx. 2kg). Currently he weighs about 8.7kg.

He is active & eating well e.g.:

7am - 5oz milk
10am - cereal breakfast
1pm - porridge for lunch
4pm - fruits or yogurt for tea
6.30pm - 7.30pm - porridge for dinner
9pm - 2-3oz milk
& 12mn - 5oz milk

I read a lot of books that this is normal but would like a more expert view and confirmation.


And many thanks to Dr. Sanjay’s reply to my earlier question.

Hi Lynda,

That is absolutely fine.

The best way to know if your baby is having adequate nutrition is to ensure that his growth is within the normal on his follow-ups.

Best Regards
