Exclusively breastfed babies do tend to gain more slowly after three or four months compared to artificially (formula) fed babies but this is normal. 

In some cases, however, an illness in the baby may result in slower than expected weight gain. Supplementing with formula does not cure the illness and may rob the baby of the beneficial effects of exclusive breastfeeding.
