this is for the ladies with 8mos. old babies.

How much does your baby weigh? my baby is 8 mos. and weighs 17lbs. I feel like he's supposed to weigh more than that. Does that seem right, 17lbs for an 8 month old?

  • My daughter is 10 months now and just finally hit 20lbs, when she was 8 months she was 16.5 and they said she was small for her age but still in the healthy range. Her best friend is 11 months and weighs 27 pounds so I was worried too. He is a little small but is healthy =)

  • My kids were all under 20 lbs at 1 year, so 17 lbs at 8 months is fine. My 2nd weighed less than that at 1 year!

  • It's normal for a 12 mo boy to weigh 17 pounds.

    I would be concerned that 17 pounds at 8 months for a girl is too much. We know problems with overweight begin in infancy especially with formula babies. I would be careful to not overfeed, not give any juice, and be very careful about food choices.
