Weight gain/loss

Just wondering what the average monthly weight gain is for 4 year olds? Also is it normal for a 4 year old to loose weight even though they have eaten very well?
DD 4.3 has gone from 15.6kg to 15.2kg in 6/7 weeks.

Has she been unwell at all? Started new activities? My DD age 4 has lost weight since starting school and being in a strong eating routine.

No she hasn't actually been ill, she usually has poor weight gain as she is always ill with chest infections which she is under different consultants etc for. But these last few weeks between her appointments (which is where she was weighed both times) she has been very well, eating and drinking fine, no change of routine or activities. They didn't mention anything although I am not sure they looked at her previous weight as now she is not under weight they see anything within a healthy range good. Even though it isn't a huge loss, I would have thought at 4 and growing in height, she would have gained a little even just for the height.
