R's Disappointing 6 Month Check-Up

I am very discouraged about R's 6 month check-up.  They said she did not gain enough weight.  I am not sure what has caused this.  She is still nursing, and she was spot-on for all her developmental milestones.  I am definitely reconsidering being on my diet.  I know that I have been drinking half-caf coffee, so I will go back to decaf.  I thought about starting formula.  I am very unsure about the situation.

The doctor said not to worry about it yet.  She is just starting solids, so he recommended offering solids 4-5 times a day.  He will check her weight again in a month.  He said that if she doesn't gain more by then, he will have to do blood work.  That kind of talk freaks me out.

She isn't acting like there is anything wrong.  Everyone says she is such a good baby, because her temperament is good.  I don't know.  I am praying about it, though.
