Hi my daughter is 10 months now. Her birth weight was 3kg and now she is 8kg. Is it normal weight gain??? Till 5. 5months she had oly breast feed. That time doc said she's over weight as she had 6. 5kgs then. But Now she's given food 3 times a day. But lean n just 8kgs. Is there anything to take care?

Answer:
a healthy baby doubles her birth weight at 5 months and triples by one year. Your daughter weight gain seems fine. Hopefully she would be 9 kgs at one year. And she is not overweight. You may give her solids 3 times alternating with milk feeds 3-4 times a day. Hope it helps.
