Hello linda,
If diarrhea is not associated with fever or crying then it is normal. Slight decrease in weight during the course of food changes are quite normal, nothing to worry.
9.1kg for a 10 month old girl is normal, but have a watch for further more decrease.
You can continue present feed, and give oral rehydration solution if your baby feel dehydrated and follow the medications provided by your pediatrician.
