Answer:
As per WHO Growth charts of weight for age for Girls, your baby's weight should be 9.3kg, so she is perfectly doing fine. Do not worry. \Regarding food, At this age your baby should be taking 3-4 milk feeds and 3-4 solid feeds (3/4 cup in each feed). Keep a gap between solid and milk feeds, offer solid feed only after 2-3 hours of milk feed, Try giving more of finger foods, same foods as the rest of the family is eating and encourage self-feeding as babies enjoy it. offer more of finger foods, which can be mainly sandwiches cut in different sizes, made with whole wheat Bread, cheese/paneer or veggie sticks or prepare omelet or pancake/paratha with different variations and cut it into different shapes with a biscuit cutter. Offer milk as a milkshake, smoothie with many varieties of fruits and veggies. Try to serve foods in an attractive manner. Be patient and offer small amounts in every feed. Lastly, do not force feed your baby
