hello , As your baby is 7 month old by now weaning can be started .Weaning refers to initiation of palatable solid food along with breastfeed/formulafeed.It is often seen that post viral fever or URI small children show aversion for milk/diet ,so you can start with mashed bananas,mashed boiled potatoes with some salt for taste,Khichdi ,porridge can be given along with milk.Don't force the baby for milk,as this is very common fact post viral episode.Just make sure he is fully hydrated
