it's completely normal, I'm a makeup artist so can answer with confidence!

some people do have ridges, it can sometimes be asociated with calcium but I highly doubt that in an 8 month old. I had ridges as a child they come and go now, when they come I buff them out, but i wouldn't recomend this with a baby!

Make sure when you cut her nails you do it in one swift clip with sharp clippers, using blunt ones and having to hack at them can damage the nail bed, but other than that it's nothing to worry about at all.
