At 6 months old her 'diet' should consist of breast milk or formula... Maybe starting solids, but if she's having digestive problems... solids are probably not a good idea. I wouldn't feed on a schedule unless the schedule is offering her MORE often than what she is asking for.

What kind of doctor is your husband? Unless HE is a pediatrician as well... there is no way his word would trump the ped (imo) in my house. If the ped wants to be running tests... we'd be running tests. It is not normal or good for a baby to be losing weight at 6 months old. Granted, it 'could' very well be from the digestive issues, but I would not want to 'wait and see' and risk my baby getting worse in the meantime.
