  • Wow, 14 1/2 lbs at 9 months. My daughter is 10 1/2 months and probably weighs about 23lbs. She has an 8oz in the morning,, 8oz before bed and 2-3 6oz bottles throughout the day and a 4oz jar of baby food 3 times a day.

  • It depends on what kind and how much food she's getting. Mine had about 20-24oz of milk at that age, but they were eating all table foods.
