See your doctor: I think your son should be seen by his doctor. If an infant is not gaining weight, this can be a big problem. Your son's doctor can check his growth curve and evaluate his daily food intake to see if your son needs further evaluation.

Failure to thrive: Your son may have medical or dental issues, even if no teeth have erupted yet. You need professional help, as whatever you have been doing has, unfortunately, proven to be unsuccessful. Please see a medical specialist (Pediatrician) and a dental specialist (Pedodontist) immediately for examination, diagnosis, and treatment. Make sure to see both specialists.
