hi dear, yes its less and i am sailing on the same boat.. was she born low weight? if she is active and eating well, then there's nothing much to do... you can add ghee, nuts powder, banana, chickoo etc. to her diet. if she is continuing to gain weight on her chart then no problem. if she is not gaining at all, you may need to consult doctor... after six months weight gain does slow down... so if she started out with less weight, then she will be behind her peers who started out with more weight...


Hi Dimple. How are you? Super advice Sheeba Vijesh!
We tend to be very focussed on weight. I would say if Dr. says its ok, then its fine. Baby should be playful and active  The Ultimate Height and Weight tracker for little Girls is a good read

Dear Dimple..
we a mother's tend to think that a baby is healthy if he/she is good weight wise.. I also used to very worried.. but if hr baby is active and no health issues the there is nothing to worry about. and like Sheeba mentioned add ghee in rice and roti. add little dry fruits powder and also cream.. give cheese.. give 2 fruits a day .. and it will be okay. don't worry.. kids get to know that mommies are upset.. so smile
