Also, at 8.5 month, baby is starting to eat solids I assume.  A helpful guide is to nurse/provide milk first before solids, and allow to nurse as often as she likes-more nursing does NOT mean she isnt getting what she needs, and is likely a growth or mental leap.  Babies do also plateu in weight especially if theyve started to move (crawl, cruise) so keep that in mind as well.
