First, look to it that he is not given any bottle-feeding. Second, give him other foods in diet as well like boiled apple, bananas, along with pulses and even boiled egg(meshed).
Also add multi-vitamin supplements along with some colostrum-containing formula lke Pedimune to improve immunity. Thanks.
