Hello, it is common when an infant (less than 1 year) baby gets any infection there weight starts decreasing, due to altered feeding habits, and starts gaining weight once it recovers from that infection , and also 7months old baby along with breast milk needs the complimentary feeds,, you need to concentrate upon that too, and it takes 5months to double the birth weight,, and to triple the birth weight,, it takes 7months.
