9kg? That's just short of 20lbs. Twenty pounds is a pretty average weight for a 12 month old. Of course, what matters is weight for his height, as well as his what his weight was when he was born. Usually babies double their birth weight between 4 and 6 months. After that the rule of thumb is to triple your birth weight by one year, and to then add roughly five pounds for every other year. However, that is a very rough guide. After a baby doubles his birth weight genetics tends to kick in more... smaller, lighter, leaner parents tend to have lighter babies and kids, huskier or stockier parents tend to have heavier kids.
