Brief Answer: relax Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for your query. I understand your concern. Normally weight of child triples birth weight by 1year of age. At her age her weight should have been about 12 kg. Her height is as per her age. I suggest you to improve her diet. Give balanced diet having cereals,pulses,vegetables,fruit,milk and milk products,eggs. Add butter or ghee to her meals. Give nuts. Avoid all kind if junk food items. Since she us active so nothing to worry. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any further question. Wishing your baby good health. God bless...
