Her weight for her corrected age falls well within normal limits. She is on the 25th percentile and while this is a bit below the average for her corrected age, it is perfectly acceptable. Keep on with your present feeding schedule, your baby will continue to make reasonably good progress. You should certainly not try to force her to eat extra amounts of food.

I thought my baby wa the only one. She is at 7,4kg and she was 6kg at 9 months. I feel better now that I know there are others that are going through the some thing.
