I agree with what all the other said. The only thing I would add is that if you think your DD may not be getting enough fat, you could always introduce more cheese or other high fat foods, perhaps some nut butters if that is appropriate allergy-wise for her. Fat is necessary for proper brain development. I can't remember, are you BFing? That provides good fats. (I don't and we are on cow milk now.)

My DD really slowed down with the weight gain as well at that age, and she get skinny, then chunky, then skinny as she grew taller. After 1 year of age, she did not gain a single pound for 9 or 10 months -- she just grew taller and more mature! So it does happen again in the toddler years.

No i don't BF anymore she is on formula. What kind of cheeses can be introduced early on? Does avocado do? It has a lot of fat....and it is natural and nutritious......Thank you..

Avocado is fine if she'll eat it. Neither of mine ever did lol one of the only things they don't like.

As for cheese, after 9 months any cheese is fine as long as it pasterised. So no blue cheeses and others like that. Other milk produces (like yogert) are fine too.

We used to shred the cheese for them and they had it as finger foods. HUGE hit for both girls. Big enough to pick up, too small to choke on. Not too much cheese though, it can constipate, although mine have not reached that point yet lol they LOVE cheese.

I'd definitely add cheese to her diet! Just make sure it's the whole fat stuff (same with yogurt). It can actually be tricky to find.

My dd is only 7 1/2 months but cruises like crazy. She actually is still gaining well (eats everything and still BF a ton) but the pedi was really surprised that she is gaining so well. She said that when babies start cruising/walking their weight gain slows waaaaaaay down.

Avocado is good, although my DD would not eat it. Cheddar cheeses are good but sometimes a little hard. You can try shredded cheese, that should be pretty easy to pick up and eat, if a bit messy. Also small pieces of sliced cheese are easy. Mozzarella is often low-fat, at least here in the U.S. it is. My DD loves sharp cheddar cheese better than the mild cheeses. You're in Greece, right? I don't know if Feta is OK because it is a soft cheese, but someone locally may know. Any cheese that has been pasteurized will be fine for little ones as long they don't have a dairy allergy.

My DD dearly loves cheese and would eat it all day if she could. I have to keep an eye on how much she gets so there are no constipation issues!

Yeah i'd love to give her feta but i think it is not pasteurized....i'll ask about it. She has already started on yogurts and she doesn't *YET show any allergy sign to them so i may be hopeful that cow's milk is ok with her. I'll try cheddar (it's a very good idea).....edam....? edam is also high is fat and highly tasty...i wish i could start her on cow's milk. We have a FULL fat cow's milk here that most kids drink for more than 100 years now. It is so freaking tasty with dried OR fresh bread put in it and slightly warmed up. I know she is gonna love it, but i don't intend to try it for at least 3 months from now. It was my favorite snack before bed when i was little...actually it STILL is my favorite snack! If i wasn't trying so hard to stay away from fattening snacks i would have had that one every single night. I remember my granma used to give it to me by the ton....trying to get me to have a little fat on me.......i was really thin for many years.....wonder if DD will get that from me...trouble me with her food and what have you.....LOL......

I think it could be the age. Bella has been having the same issue with weight gain. I have started adding formula to her cereal and giving it to her several times a day as opposed to once in the morning.

Let us know what the dr says, if you take her.
