January 21st: 14 1/2 pounds. My daughter was  4 1/2 months.

March 1st: 15 pounds and 14 ounces. My daughter is 6 months now.

Now what should I expect for the upcoming months? I know breastfed babies tend to slow down.

All babies are different. From 6-12 mts my son didn't gained not even an ounce but he was hitting milestones on time. Then he gained slowly very very slowly. He was 18 lbs at 12 mts and at 2 yrs he is about 21lbs. He got bm till he was about 12mts.

Gain is fine. Yes, expect a slowdown. Look for triple birth weight by one year.

Take a look at that "Look at the Baby, Not The Scale" post that's just a couple of pages back. You'll never worry about weight again.
