  • She sounds PERFECT to me. What other people's babies weigh really isn't important...you can only measure your child based on where she started.

    Mine was HUGE compared to yours...but he also STARTED big. But that matters not at all.

  • My 8 month old DS is about 16 lbs. He's just now starting to chunk up a little. Btw, he started out at 7 lbs 14oz.

  • Are you sure she's thriving okay? My daughter is 4 months and weighs that much, and isn't even in the 50th percentile for weight. I can't imagine what an 8 month old at that weight would be at percentile wise. Does her pediatrician say it's okay? That just sounds extremely little.

  • my 8 month old weighs about 22 pounds. He is very long and no he's not fat. I hate it when people say a baby is fat!

  • my son was born @ 6 lbs 5 oz. @ 8 months he weighs 23 lbs, but like the PP my son is long and thick... his doctors said its because i exclusively breastfeed. still..everyone is right though every baby is different, like every pregnancy is different :)

    and to the anonymous poster above mominbolt, my bosses 1year old daughter is the same weight as my son (23 lbs) and her doctor says shes fine.

  • My daughter started off at 8 lbs and was 14 lbs at 8 months, 16 lbs at a year. She's 2 now and about 22 lbs, she's just little, but not abnormally so and not unhealthy, in fact she's always been a great eater. Some kids are just smaller.
