Q.

Ideal weight for a nine month old baby

Hi

My daughter is now nine months and weighs 8 kgs. She was born three weeks premature. She is a petite little girl and very healthy. Except for a bit of wind now and again and the usual teething issues, she is just fine. However my husband and inlaws are insisting that she needs to pick up weight fast and wants to force her to eat. I am not comfortable with this at all and would please like a professional opnion.

Thank you
