Answer:
your daughter's weight is good for her age. And the child should keep gaining weight constantly. If your milk is sufficient there is no need to put her on other milk, at least till one year of age. If needed, you can feed formula/animal milk with spoon and katori. What you are feeding is good. You can introduce pulses, curd, other cereals too but gradually. Such a small baby may not accept or like everything you give. So you can give little amounts of idli/ragi or any other food, if she accepts, it is okay otherwise don't force that food. You may try that food after few weeks. Hope this helps.
