Hi carmen ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Since now your baby is 7 months you can start him on liquids along with milk.As such Lactogen 2 is as good as one and has almost the same composition with a few things extra or in dose according to the age requirement so that should not cause problem.He will start picking up weight again and for the slime you can consult a Paediatrician for examination to rule out any problem.If the baby is fine according to him then no need to worry.
Thanks
