Your baby's weight is just slightly below the average for her age, so there is no real cause for concern about this now. She has a bad thrush [also known as candida] infection of her mouth.You will need to treat her using Nystatin Oral soluttion 1ml given 4 times aday in her mouth for 5 days. If she does not get better please write in again. You must sterilise all her cups using boiling water. You say you do not use a bottle to feed her and use a cup for water. How do you feed her the Pelargon? She is too young to drink enough of her formula from a cup only.
