I shouldn't be worried, but any advice or encouragement is helpful. (bump for pic!)

DD is 8 months now. She doesn't eat much solids and I think from the move and being touched out she's been eating less cause I put her down when she seems to just be holding the nipple in her mouth. She sleeps with me and I sleep topless. I can feel her ribs, though. She is happy, on track with all her development, babbles, and I feed her whenever she wants. Should I start offering extra feeds? She's also making appropriate diapers. Or am I just being paranoid. She doesn't have an apt. till next month.

 Every baby develops differently my kids were really "fat babies" but I have a friend who's 2 yr old daughter is perfectly healthy but my 8 month old weighs more than her...As long as her doctor says she's ok..."She's fine" :)

This is one healthy looking baby! And I love that she's holding the marshmallows.

I'm BFing my 21 month old after FF my first two kids, and I was always worried she was too skinny. Percentiles are pretty much useless for individuals, but I'll use them just to give you an idea: My first tops the charts for height and has been between 25th and 50th for weight since birth. My second was always on the smaller side (25th percentile for height and weight, now 50th percentile for both at age 5). yDD (my BF baby) is 80th percentile for height and around 50th percentile for weight now after hovering around 50th percentile for height and being under 5th percentile for weight until almost a year. She didn't have much as far as solids until she was closer to a year. With all three of my kids, you've always been able to see their ribs and they're all happy, healthy children. 

As long as your LO is growing, not lethargic, and hitting her milestones within a reasonable window of when she's expected to, try not to worry :) You're doing a great job!

 I wouldn't worry about it. I have a three year old who is the same size as my friends six month old baby. Each child is different.
