, the weight of your baby is fine for the age. 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. If the baby doubles her birth weight by 5 months and triples it by one year, it means the weight gain is good. However, you can give porridge of suji, sago, dalia, rice flakes, ragi etc. Fruit smoothie especially made of banana/mango and malai, milk/curd Boiled & mashed potato , boiled sweet potato with a little butter, Scrambled egg yolk with added milk, egg nog or egg added to soup Dal-roti mash, dalia dal khichdi. Add extra spoon of ghee/butter/oil to their dishes. Fruit yogurt made of full-fat milk, Full-fat milk based puddings like rice kheer/dates& raisins(cooked & mashed) custard/vermicelli kheer/gajar kheer
