  • 7kgs is about 14 lbs right??? maybe a little more, but is your doc concerned??? she may just be small, also, she is at the age where she is becoming more active and is using more calories each day. if you are concerned with her weight and she is still making dirty and wet diapers regularly, go see the doc...or immediately go if she stops making poops...not much you can do sometimes...but talk toyour doc if you are worried

  • She is tiny... but is she otherwise growing well? I wouldn't worry about it unless your doctor is concerned and then they should come up with a diet plan for you baby to help her gain weight.

  • My daughter was almost 19lbs at one year so at 10 months she wasn't that much smaller than your daughter.
    Our doctor wasn't concerned for several reasons. First off, she was meeting her milestones. She was also very long(tall.) Because of those reasons we and our doctor were not concerned about her weight.
    Has she always been small or has she suddenly started to lose/not gain weight? Is she walking or doing anything else that might cause her to exert more energy thus slowing down her weight gain?
