My DD is 10.5 months old. She's never been massive, though we went through a phase of worry caused by baby clinic due to slow weight gain and a few losses. She saw a paed and was deemed normal but probably catching down. She was recommended 4-6 weekly weight checks just to keep an eye on her though.

She was weighed 6 weeks ago at 16lb 4oz. Today she weighed 15lb 9oz and is between 2nd and 9th centiles.

In the past 6 weeks though she has started crawling and also cut her first 2 teeth. Is it normal to lose weight with these 2 things. She's eating fine and has 4 BF a day. I'm just worried they're going to start "monitoring" her again and getting myself all stressed out. Was told they will wait for her 1yr check and use that as a guide on "where to go"

Can you tell she's PFB?!

Yes, short answer.
She's probably just meant to be petite.
Hope your worries are behind you soon.
