child losing weight

my 8month old had his development check on friday and hv is so pleased with him for what he can do. but his weight as dropped but dont know how he as 3 meals aday but not enough milk. hv says he should be on about 20oz a day now but he only has 2 4oz and 1 5oz he wont drink anymore refuses it.

  • yes if ur child isnt drinking enough milk they always say give more dairy foods so u cant do that either! hope u can find out if u can give dairy or not soon. has he always refussed alot of milk? is that why they think its milk tolerance? my friends baby is 8 months and also will not have their milk anymore but thats ony becos he prefers his food and only wants to drink water! so i think she just has to give more diary and add milk to some of his foods xx
