If she has an allergy to regular formula, there are other formulas she can take. My son was allergic to regular formula, too, so the doctor had him drink soy formula. My kids hated the jars of baby food, so I would make rice congee with chicken broth, and add carrots and peas. Then I would add rice cereal.

See what works for your daughter. Good luck!

As for doctors, do you qualify to go to a clinic so you don't have to pay?

She isn't interested to take foods. Every time she cries when I feed her. Last month's I went to dr. Dr said her weight isn't ok. Needs to gain weight. Dr gave her rice cereal bt she has allergy in milk. So I make rice hotchpotch at home with fruit and veg. In January I can't go to dr cz too expensive .

At 7 months, my son was under 14 pounds. Your daughter is equivalent to about 14 pounds. My son is below the "standard curve," but they attribute that to our ethnicity and our size. In general, babies start to "thin out" as they get taller. Is she still eating well? What did the doctor say? If she is still gaining weight and the doctor says she is fine, then I wouldn't worry too much about it. If she isn't gaining enough weight, the doctor might start having you supplement her milk/formula with more formula mix to make sure she is getting enough calories. The doctor will give you the correct ratio.

Good luck!
