Multiviamins will not make your baby eat more.Your baby was very premature and her age should be taken at about 8 months when commenting on her weight.If we do this her weight is actually excellent and is exactly on the average for a baby girl of 8 months. Don't try to force her to eat anything. She will eat when she is hungry. At present she must be getting adequate nutrition going by her good weight.
