I would get a second opinion. DS1 also had a hard time gaining weight. He was born at 9lbs 7.3oz and had so much trouble nursing that I just decided to pump and bottle feed him expressed milk. He would always eat a ton, even more than the recommended amount. He had horrible acid reflux that we fought to keep under control. His height was usually in the 95th or above percentile but his weight was always around the 25th. The doctor was fine with his measurements and never told me to give him formula. He is 3.5 now and a tall, skinny beanpole. It is just his natural build. I don't really have any advice on how to get her to gain more weight but just wanted to let you know my experience.
