  • 7lbs within that short period of time is not healthy for anyone, adult or child.

    I would say its time to take her to the doctor.

  • Is she sick? maybe an ear infection or throat infection? Maybe acid reflux makes her not want to eat? Any new stress that may be bothering her? Check with doc, for sure though.
