Would the doctor have recommended baby food?

My son is on the lower end for his weight for his age. He saw a specialist and they recommended to give him one scoop of extra powder in his formula to see if that'll help him gain weight. He's almost 6 months now. Do you think the doctor would have suggested baby food so he gains weight instead of formula?... show more My son is on the lower end for his weight for his age.

Do you think the doctor would have suggested baby food so he gains weight instead of formula? My husband seems to think that baby food would help him gain weight more than formula would. Should I try it or should I consult his pediatrician? Ever since he's had an extra scoop of formula, he's gained 1 or 2 ounces but it's been 2 weeks since I started increasing the scoop of formula so in 2 weeks, he's only gained one or two ounces...
