A nine month child should also be given weaning foods apart from milk. Milk alone in this age can not meet his nutritional needs. You can give him 2-3 feeds of milk along with 2-3 times weaning foods. Here are few suggestions Well cooked and mashed dal, khichri, rice kheer, custard, suji kheer. Boiled and mashed vegetables like potato, carrot, ghia, pumpkin, green leafy vegetables with a spoon of butter/ ghee. You may even add half boiled egg yolk to it. Mashed & pureed fruits like banana, stewed fruits, and or fruit juice. Make sure food is well cooked & mashed/pureed. Starting from thin consistency, thicken the consistency of the food, according to the tolerance of your son. Hope it helps.
