I'm very concerned about my daughter's weight, and need some advice. First here's some background information: She's 9 months old, she weighed 8lbs 13oz when she was born and now at 9 months weights 39.5lbs! She is strictly breastfed and eats about every 4-6 hours, no baby food, no table food, nothing but breastmilk! The doctor is very concerned also and has ran several tests checking her thyroid, for things such as early onset child obesity, giantism?, and several other things. All results have come back normal so far, but he's wanting to do more tests. I guess I asking if there is anyone else out there that has this problem or has heard of one similar? Please help!

Try the mothers of special needs children group. Someone in there *might* have some solid ideas.
