A baby should double his/her birth weight by 6 months. If this is so then baby has normal weight gain. Also as per my pediatrician baby should gain approx. 850 gms to 1 kg per month for first 3 months and then 500 - 600gms from 4th month onwards till 9th month. From 10th month weight gain gets slower than previous months. If this parameter is not followed by then there might be other reasons. 1. Right nutrition 2. Hereditary Nothing can be done in second case. If baby is active and achieving benchmarks at right time then no need to worry. But for right nutrition your Pediatrician may suggest you some Multivitamins, Calcium Iron & Vitamin D3 supplements. Also you may give baby some weight gaining foods after baby reach 6 months benchmark like - Breastmilk, Banana, Beans, Potatoes, Cow whole milk curd, Desi Ghee ( not more than half teaspoon in a day), Sweet potatoes, cheeku, Pears.

Weight gain depends on birth weight. Babies should be double their birth weight by 6 months and tripled their birth weight by 12 months.

Hi Niti. .keep in mind that ur child shud gain 10 kgs by the completion of 1st yr.. since ur baby's weight is only 7kgs by 10 months, she shud have gained more weight so that she can meet the target.. try giving her mashed potatoes, carrots, oats porridge khichdi wid a pinch of ghee..

Niti... birth weight should be tripled @ 12 months and each baby has its own growing pattern & it's seems to be quite less weight to me... you can add egg yellow yolk, pulses, lean meat, full fat milk or creamy, milk shakes, ghee wit idly, chappathi mashed, butter dishes in daily routine food of ur baby....
