Bowel Movements (Continued from below...)
Sorry, my 10 month old is 8.5kgs (10.5 months!). He does not eat much wheat. I''ll check his cereals and change to maize for a while and see how he goes.
Thank you for your response, most appreciated!

The average weight for a baby boy of 10 months is 9.25kg.Your baby son's weight is on the 25th percentile line of the infant growth chart, putting him in the lowest 25% of baby boys of 10 months for his weight. This is still quite acceptable, but could indicate that he has some food intolerance.Take all wheat out of his diet for 1 week, not just cereal.
