It does sound like you are doing everything right to me too, but you must realise that hair has a resting phase, and may be she'll get her growth spurt soon. As long as the hair is not breaking and it stays moisturised then growth will come when it's time just have faith and consistency.

Yes! Stop the worry! Sounds like you're doing more than enough and kids do have growth spurts to the point where you should be enjoying it... consider that you're not having to trim her hair too often. ;)

You may want to try a simpler regimen. U should make sure that her shampoo is sulfate-free. I use Kids Organic Shea Butter Moist Shampoo on my DD. I deep condition with Palmer's Olive Oil Deep Conditioner. It does not have any mineral oil or petroleum, which are both drying to natural hair.  As a moisturizer I make a homemade whipped shea and seal with coconut oil.  

Here's the video of how to make the whipped shea:

Are the braids too tight? And maybe try not using heat at all, letting her hair air dry and not flat iron or hot comb (if your using them) for a few mths and see if that helps. Everything else sounds fine and Im sure it will grow in time.

Children's hair is different.  Sometimes it takes a while for it to get into growing a lot.  Don't stress it.  It will grow but try washing your daughter's hair twice a week.  Washing hair does stimulate hair growth and don't use petroleum based products.

When I see other people girls who are about her age with lotsa hair I can't help but feel sad and bad...I'm getting teary eyed as I type this. I think why can't my little girl have hair like ....I just want her to have more lenght. Her Dad and his family have type 3a hair with a lot of hair and I have decent hair  so i don't know what the problem is. here is her Regi

 
i have 2 daughters, 4 and 5. to be honest, their hair really doesn't grow much either, no matter how much i take care of it. i did notice that when i put box braids in my oldest dauther's hair for like 4 months, she had lots of new growth. about an inch. i did this last year at the beginning of school.
 
now i am doing the same thing. but without the box braids(using kankelon hair) i really don't see any growth with either of them.
 
i braid both of their hair btw, but i use fake hair on the oldest one.
