Worried Mummy.. My Son has always had a Good Appetite, Hes never been a Overly Hungry Baby, He has between 3-4 6oz Bottles in the day & sometimes has 1 6oz bottle if he wakes at night.... in between he has Some Juice and Water.. Solids wise he Has Cereal (weetabix) for breakfast with Cows Milk, Maybe a snack of Breadsticks with soft cheese or Fruit at 10.30am a Hot Dinner at 12.30 - 1pm and then Tea soup/ Toast or baby Jar Followed by a Yoghurt.. He is Cutting a Tooth which Probably isnt helping his Appetite But Im Just Wondering if hes Getting enough.. or can anyone reccomend any meals for fussy babies that would help with weight gain..?? Thanks :) ♥

Hes Almost 10 months.. and in the UK our Health Visitors advise introducing Cows Milk after 6 Months.it the form of yoghurts, cheese that sort of thing.. He Seems to have cut his tooth and now seems back to his usual Self,, Eating Plenty.. Hes Put on a Pound in the last 3 1/2 weeks So Good News He Now weighs 17lb 15oz Happy Mummy :) Thanks for the advice x

Wow, he was intaking A LOT for a 9 mo old!

If he's teething, he's probably not wanting to eat. Would you? Gums are swollen and painful, it hurts to even THINK about biting...

He's most likely fine, and would be fine with just formula or breast milk. Generally, pediatricians don't advocate the introduction of cows milk before 1 year anyway...
