Donot Panic!! The baby grows slowly and gains good height at later age. In first 5 years her Mental Development is more important. If she is very much underweight, give SHATAVARI KALPA in milk twice a day. Make sure no SOLID FOOD in even a small amount is Given to her. SOUPS (except Tomato) and Juices (except milk shakes) would be beneficial to them.

babies grow slowly, yu see changes in the height after she starts walking, thats the time babies grow faster. The final height she wil acheive will be after she enters her teen years. Right now make sure you give her good nutritious foods along with the milk. Right diet wil ensure right health.
