Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
Its always desirable to have a good weight, but please try to understand that babies with 6.3lbs at 7 months are not too low. So there is no need to panic. If your baby is not taking a big feed each time, you can give her more frequent feeds.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
I will be more than happy to help you if you need any further details.
Wish you good health.
