my daughter is 8 1/2 months and only weighs about 13 1/2 pounds... she's an itty bitty one, she was born 5lbs 9oz, and is just built tiny... she's got really chubby cheeks and only one roll on her thighs, but the doctor says all's great, so I'm not worried.
My son weighed about 17lbs at 8 months, he was born 7lbs 4 oz... honestly, I was told that as long as your baby is eating and drinking healthy, all's well. However, if you really are worried, go see the doctor (better safe then sorry)

My daughter was weighed at a week before her 8 month birthday, and was 15lbs even.
She's only 23rd percentile for weight, but is over 90th percentile for height, so I have a string bean baby! (She's got the thumbs up for being healthy, and she's always been a great eater) - our pediatrician thinks she just has a very active metabolism. :)

My 8mos. old was born a month early weighing in at 8.0 even. Although she was big, she is now only 15 1/2 pounds. My Dr. says she is healthy. She eats alot too. She is just long and lean. Very active baby!!!! As long as she is eating good, I wouldnt worry. She seems to be tiny just like my lil girl.

my daughter was born 3 weeks early at 5 lbs 9 oz, and now she's only just over 13 lbs... but she's just built small, cause she sure eats just as much, if not more than her brother... ...
my son, at 8 months weighed about 17 lbs, the doctor told me they both look healthy enough with their chubby cheeks and thighs... so I figure all is good

my daughter was born 9 days late with a weight of 6 lbs 5oz and 18.5 inches long.. she's currently 15lbs and not quite sure on her length.. she's tiny.. lol neither her father nor myself are very tall so the poor girl doesn't have a huge hope when it comes to height lol

My Son Kendall was 9lbs 1oz at birth and is about 20-21lbs now. My daughter was 8lbs 15oz but has been a slender kid ever since. As you can see there is no exact science as far as height and weight with children. I wouldn't worry unless she isn't eating or drinking.

My daughter had her chk up yesterday and was 16lbs and 27 inches long. she is also small, she was 6.9lbs when she was born. but she is very active, crawling at 6 mths and has been cruising for the past month. shes a go getter!

18 lbs. 10oz. The doctor says she's under weight. I told him how she's eating baby food and very active, but is low on bowel movements, however. She's primarily breast-fed, so my diet has had to shift for the better and we have to feed her more formula so she can poop.
