Question: My baby's weight not gaining properly..now she is 8th months old nd her weight only 7.5kg..so tell me what can i do for her weight gain
If your baby is active and eating well, I don't think it is a major issue. You can give plenty of high calorie food.
Babies don't grow as much as they do in first year. After one year, you can focus on her eating habits than her weight. Feed her healthy food and have a structure over the feeding habits. Usually feeding thrice and having two snacks in between is suggested.
