Hi Raveena I don't think there is any need to start formula. Weight gain after completion of 3 months reduces and it reduces more after 6 months. Sometimes the baby can gain just 1 kg from 6 months to 12 months which is normal. Do get your baby's weight marked on the growth chart which will help you understand her progress
