Did I totally screw up or what?
This has been my babies weight gain:

On 11/21 she was diagnosed with a uti, which explains the weight gain, or lack there of, at that time. She also started being very active (crawling etc) and was teething two times in november. It also coincides with when her pediatrician started pressuring me to feed her solids. She got constipated pretty badly from it (I'm def. sure that caused the UTI) and now at 10 months, she still loves solids and requires it now as she doesn't seem full from my milk. But her weight gain doesn't seem that great to me either. She still nurses 5-6 times during the day and nurses an hour before solids, she also night nurses since we co-sleep. She also eats solids 3-4 times a day (1/2 - 1 avocado, 1 orange, 2.5-3oz sweet potato with coconut oil or sometimes yogurt, 2.5-3oz spinach with coconut oil, and what ever I cooked for dinner minus the salt - just an example of what she would eat during the day)
At first, I thought my supply might have tanked, but today, I pumped 2 oz of one breast (in 20 minutes) while she nursed on the other side. So, I think I'm producing an ok amount, considering that about 4-5 months ago I stopped letting down for the pump after not pumping for a while.
I guess my questions would be:
1. Is that appropriate weight gain after her UTI in November?
2. If not, what can I do to increase her weight gain?
3. Did I screw up completely by starting her on solids so early? And can/should I go back to mainly nursing and cut down on solids with out repercussion of weight gain issues??
4. Is her current weight even fine???
Her pediatrician isn't very bf friendly and since she's smaller, he wants me to feed more solids, supplement with formula etc etc and is close to saying she's failure to thrive. I'm stressed out from it and feel like I constantly shoving food or boobs in her mouth. I feel like her weight gain was fine and once he started stressing me to feed her solids at 6 mo (which I did against my better judgement), her weight gain tanked.
Aside from her being teeny tiny, she is seemingly happy, crawls, stands on her own, sits in her own, and is meeting milestones left and right.
Thanks for any insights you all could give me.
