Pasta, white bread etc. Total rest. Repeat domstal after 12 hours if nausea persists.

Is it possible for my 9 month old kid to loose 500mg of weight in 1 month. She weighed arround 8.2 kgs one month back now she is 7.5 kg. She is active in all aspects crawls, giggles, baby talks, but is very fussy about eating. We struggle to make her feed. Hence we are worried. She passes stool almost everyday and urination is fine. Is this loss of weight normal.

Check the weight/ weighing scale again. It might be faulty. Check weight on the same scale. If child suffered some illness, he may have lost but otherwise unlikely.
