The weight of the baby seems fine. There is no absolute weight for the babies below one year of age which is considered healthy. There is a range of weight and generally birth weight of the baby is considered. The baby should be consistently gaining weight. If the baby doubles her birth weight by 5 months and triples by one year, it means the weight gain is good. If your child is above 6 months you may give these foods Boiled & mashed potato, boiled sweet potato with a little butter. Mashed banana. Full-fat milk based puddings like rice kheer/dates& raisins(cooked & mashed) custard/vermicelli kheer/gajar kheer Porridge of ragi,suji, rice. Add a spoon/5 ml of ghee/butter to the dishes.
