Baby - eats very little & want to increase her appetite

My daughter is a petite young lady, she is nearly 10 months and hasn't really put on the weight like her friends of the same age.She is in the 2nd percentile for weight and is just shy of 16lbs at the moment. However,she is absolutely fine in herself and is reaching her milestones well before time, indeed she is almost walking!
Since a tummy bug about 6 weeks ago her appetite has gone from small to almost nothing and she is currently eating perhaps 3-5 teaspoons of her favourite foods at mealtimes and then refusing anymore. She is still happily taking breastmilk and and seems to especially 'catch up' on milky feeds at night (much to my dispair!) I would like to get her appetite back to normal and I thought I would try Lycopodium 30c twice a week in her feed,I have consulted the forum pages and notice that this might be the best way forward. I have ordered pillules but I am not sure of the best way to administer and in what doses and how often. I could also do with any further advice re her appetite problem and the nightly awakenings problem. I am completely new to Homeopathy but want to learn more. Thanks for reading this.

Thank you dr Sharma, I am very grateful for your response, would you not advise to use the Lycopodium 30c that I have already ordered? Is this no good at all?

No she's fine apart from the decrease in appetite. I read a few different reports that Lycopodium was good for this. Very confused if anyone can help?

Thanks for this, do you mean I should give her Lycopodium if she eats little and often? Or if I give it to her it will make her eat little and often. How should I administer it? Thank you but still very confused I'm afraid

Thanks a lot in advance
