normally dr's don't tell you to put your child on actual milk until they are at least a year old..........

Whole milk at 8 months?! Why? That doesn't seem right. They are supposed to be over a year old. Also, whole milk isn't that great. While my children were/are breastfeeding they do not get any other kind of milk. I don't usually give them any other kind of milk at all except my oldest likes cow's milk in her cereal. They get their nutrition elsewhere.

what was the doctors reasoning for this?? ive never heard of a baby going on whole milk before he/she turned one!

20 lbs at 8 months is FINE! My oldest wasn't 20 lbs until she was 2 years old!
