16 week baby's weight

My baby girl is 16 weeks old and is being bottle fed. She weighed 7lb 13oz at birth and now weighs12lb 6 and half oz. She
has put on an average of 4.6oz /week. She is now feeding 5 times per day and drinking approx 160 ml at each feed. She has
started solids this week. Which formula available in the UK would help her to gain more weight?

All the common baby formulas are of comparable energy density. It is best to discuss the optimal feeding routine with your local clinic or NHS hospital, when they do the routine weighing.
