Drop in weight in baby even after feeding well. Reason?

Hi Doctor, my baby just turned 8 months today and weighs 9.1kg. He weighed 9.5kg in his last check, a month ago. He feeds 4-5 times a day, mainly on vegetables that are high in calories like sweet potatoes and squash. I recently introduced him to fish and chicken. N.B He moves a lot!! What could be the cause of the drop in weight?

Hello judy,
Your baby's weight is absolutely normal for his age. There is nothing to worry unless there is still more drop in weight, this is normal when baby's diet is changed.
His diet is good and continue providing it.
He is in good health.
