   This little boy came to us yesterday with all the signs of not receiving the proper nutrition.
   He is around 7 months old, and he was on mothers milk for only the first month of his life, after that they had him on regular milk, which is not a good thing to do, about 3 days before they brought him to us at the clinic they were feeding him boiled leaves, water and sugar.
   His weight is exaggerated because as you notice his cheeks are all swollen already, we really don't know what his real weight is till he gets the proper nutrition and his body start getting back on track.
   We gave them milk for him, and now what usually happens is he is going to loose more weight and will look a lot skinnier.
