Q.

Fussy Eater!

Hi Doc,

Many thanx for your reply &  advice. My 9month baby is 6.5kg &  I know this is underweight that''s why I''m stressing. I will look at the purity website. Any more advise from your side is most appreciated.

The average weight for a baby girl of 9 months is 8.2kg. Your baby's weight of 6.5kg is on the very bottom line of the infant growth chart. For a breastfed baby this is most unusual. It would really be in your baby's best interests to take her to your nearest baby clinic for advice and a check-up.
