9 kg is too low weight for age. It seems child might have low birthweight. And/or premature may be responsible for it. I would advise you take child to pediatrician for check. Talk to him about weight for age. He will be more better in position to expain. Thanks.

As your baby is now 7 months old you may start weaning with dal water. Introduce one food every week so that if your baby is allergic to that food you will know. Every week introduce one food. Like rice, wheat, ragi in various forms. For milk continue lactogen2 in proper proportion.

It seems his weaning period was improper and so is present day activity. Now first you find his taste and encourage to eat any thing but by himself. Even if he remain hungary for two days no harm. No pampers. I hope you will get results in two three weeks.

My baby's DPT vaccination is due in 2 days. Shall I go for painless DPT instead of the regular painful DPT? Will that be effective in long run if I go for painless vaccine?

Yes, dpat vaccine (painless) is better in terms of the side effects like pain and fever but the efficacy in terms of immunity and protection is almost the same with both vaccines. But at present the availability of the painless vaccine is poor, so decide accordingly.
