Diet for 7 month old: Milk should be formula / breast milk-infants should not drink cows milk till 1 year of age. 3 bottles day is OK and with cereal she can get additional milk as well . I would not recommend vitamins as cereals and formula are fortified. f/u/w/ pediatrician https://www.stanfordchildrens.org/en/topic/default?id=feeding-guide-for-the-first-year-90-P02209
