I hope you are well. Her weight is on the lower side because of everything she has gone through during birth. However, it's nice to hear that she is active and doesn't fall sick often now. What are you feeding her ? Also are you giving her breastfeeding along with formula feed ? Feed her a variety of foods, include enough protein rich foods ( dal, pulses, eggs, lean meat, nuts powder), give her 2 servings of fruits, at least 3 servings of veggies, dairy and dairy products and wholegrains/millets :) Take Care
