Do i need to worry??

Afternoon Doc

My 10month old baby gal is weighing 11.1kg, is she over weight, if so whats the normal weight for her age?She is having 3 meals per day and also 3 180mls of milk in between, am i over feeding her?

The average weight for a baby girl of 10 months is 8.5kg. Your baby is definitely overweight. She is drinking far too much milk a day for one thing. Her total fluid requirements per day including her milk which is taken at her present weight is 1400ml per day. She is also eating 3 meals a day, so is getting plenty of nutrition.
