9 mths and still eating & sleeping like 3 mth old

I want to go back to work but worried about putting my baby in daycare. She just turned 9 months and sleeps all night but also takes naps every 2 hrs during the day. She also won't eat more than 2-3 oz at a time, and I have to fight with her to hold her bottle by herself! She only weighs 15 lbs but she's very long. She is trying to walk already and has met all other milestones. Just wondering if anyone else is going thru this

At 9 months, my daughter still took 2 naps a day and ate 4oz. bottles. She also weighed less than 20lbs. at her first birthday.

At age 3, she has just reached 30lbs and 37in which puts her right around 50th percentile on the growth charts.

If your baby is meeting her milestones and seems otherwise healthy and alert, she's probably fine.

It's a growth spurt or some kind of 9 month old phase. Mine went through it. Only he weighed like 24 pounds but he was crawling and pulling up etc all on time.
