My DS is 8mnths old and is a poor eater since birth. He is also a gassy baby so eats about 110ml of 1spoons formula+3 spoons cerelac about 5 times in 24hrs. He was born 8lbs and is about 15.5lbs now. He is skinny n 67cm tall. I want him to be a little plum. He doesnt eat anything. No pureed veggies or fruits. No mashed potatoes. Help me!

At this age you should have anticipated a weight gain of double his birth weight and on his way toward tripling his birth weight by one year. To have less than doubled his birth weight by 8 months is a great concern. what does the doctor say? This is not an answer you can get here. Your child needs his caloric intake evaluated by a professional and his diet adjusted to meet his needs.
