We understand your complaints and concerns. To find out the nutritional status of your baby, more detailed information is needed related to your baby's gender, weight and body length at this time. This information can be plotted on the WHO growth curve from the Indonesian Pediatrician Association or it can also be plotted on the baby's monthly KMS (card to health). The nutritional status of a baby is quite important in its growth and development.
Based on the weight table according to WHo age, normally an 11-month-old child weighs 8.4 - 10.5 kg in boys and 7.7 - 9.9 kg in girls. Therefore, your baby's body weight tends to be still below normal.
Regarding food consumption in your baby, have you introduced MPASI well to your baby? MPASI is a complementary food for ASI which is started to be given to babies at the latest at the age of 6 months. Because at that age, the nutrition of ASI is no longer enough to meet their daily nutritional and energy needs. MPASI must meet the requirements to cover on time, adequate provision that is containing good and complete nutrition including iron, zinc, vitamins and other minerals that are not sufficiently provided through breast milk, safe and appropriate manner of administration.
At your baby's age, babies should have begun to consume foods that are textured and tend to be solid. Indeed, the age of babies approaching toodlers (more than 1 year) has begun to be able to choose their food. So parents must be clever in providing variations on the food consumed.
Feeding only through diluted biscuits naturally contains insufficient and insufficient nutrients to meet their daily energy needs, therefore weight gain becomes difficult to gain. Keep in mind that babies aged 11 to 36 months, tend to have a lot of activity and activity that requires high calories derived from the food they consume. In addition, nutrition from food also functions for their growth and development.
Try to re-introduce other complementary foods. You can make it yourself from daily food, make from instant MPASI products or buy baby porridge. Introduce food texture gradually, from smooth to rough. Give staples 2-3 times a day and healthy snacks twice a day such as chunks of vegetables, bread, potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc. Give foods that contain high animal protein sources to support growth and weight mining. Continue breastfeeding every baby wants or formula milk no more than 500cc / day. Giving too much milk is not recommended because it will make babies feel full of milk and reduce their appetite.
If in this way the baby still refuses to eat, then consult a pediatrician who has expertise in child nutrition or child growth and development in order to obtain more complete and relevant information and appropriate management.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
