For your knowledge 100ml milk gives 70calories of energy 100ml juices give 55calories of energy and 100gm of semisolid diet gives 350calories of energy.

Her weight gain as per her birth weight is adequate - as the child triples his/ her birth weight by 1 year. As the baby grows her weight gain slows down. In the first 4 months weight gain for a normal sized baby is 30gm / day or 1 kg / month . This slows down to 10 gm / day or 0.5 kg / month between 9 to 12 months. That said ,make sure yoy are giving sufficient complimentary feed ( at least 3 times / day) in addition to her milk diet.

Hi As per ur history ur concern is only since last 3 months i would like to see her growth pattern on charts from the beginning to say that her weight gain is appropriate or not..

Health Tips
As child grows the weight gain may not be as much in early months.. Weight gain in the first 3 months = 200 g/week (after regaining birth weight) Weight gain in the next 3 months = 150 g/week Weight gain in the next 6 months = 100 g/week..
