Is it normal for my 6mth old to weigh only 12lbs 13oz. She was 7lbs 14oz at birth. She prefers baby food over her formula.?

In brief: Not a normal wt

Your baby should be drinking 24-32 oz formula per day, eating baby food should not take the place of formula! not at 6 mo of age.

In brief: Probably not...

You really need more info and someone would need to look at the whole chart, growth chart, etc to really help you.
But, babies in general should double birth weight by at least 6 months and triple by one year old, and most babies double by closer to 4-5 months. Get evaluated asap, lab work and likely a GI and/endo consult is likely needed.
