Just check it up Super Appetite is actually CYPROHEPTADINE

Your baby’s weight is okay. All you need is a generous dose of patience.
Capitalize on what he eats; just introduce varieties. Continue to give formula if you like otherwise adult food (rich in protein with fats and oil and carbohydrate, vegetables and fruits) are adequate and balanced for your baby.
