After 6 month milk alone is not sufficient for child's growth. You need to start more Cereals like Dal soup Khichri  , Custard to her diet. Gradually introduce wheat like dalia,  suji etc Also add small amount of ghee to her diet . Give her a month at least on this diet to assess any weight change.
