Hilda, too, weighed only 4lbs when she was 5 months old, now she is little more than a year old and she weighs 10lbs. She did all the growing between the 6th and 12th month - but I, too, was at a vet and let her check - and thx all was good. So I would, too, recommend to let her check.
Hilda is a bad eater she does not eat everything and I had to try a lot, so that was part of the problem, too.
Concerning bathing: it is way to much to bath her every week - at least with shampoo - this can result in very dry skin and destroys the natural hair and skin protection.
Hilda is - as I said - a little more than one year old - and she was only bathed twice with shampoo (both times she rolled in cow dung - there was no way to avoid shampoing her). If she is just "normal" dirty I just bath her with water - and her skin and hair is beautiful! And if you bath her with shampoo, you really should use conditioner afterwards.
