You don't. If he's hungry, feed him.

You don't put babies that age on a diet. If he's has solids cut them out but don't take his formula away.

The diet. I didn't think babies under a year were supposed to be on a diet or watching how much they consume.

First, you fire your pediatrician.
Then you find a new one and feed your kid as much as it wants. WTF it's a baby not a dog.

DD will be 2 in September and weighs about 23 lbs last I checked. She is petite, though. I don't know anything about diets with kids, so I'm of no help there.
