Over Weight Baby
March 6, 2013 at 10:15 PM

 Just to give you a little background - I gave birth to my son who was 9lbs 12 oz at birth. I will admit I gave him cereal in his bottles a little earlier to help him sleep at night. Now he is almost 6 months and we have started doing foods (fruits and veggies). My friend gave birth to her daughter whom was around 7 lbs. Both myself and friend are on the heavier side as it runs in our family- ( I'm working n losing mine btw) but my friend refuses to feed her daughter infant foods and cereals because she is afraid that her being a chubby baby will make her a chubby and over weight adult. I think that if you teach a healthy lifestyle then you wont have to worry about your child turning into an over weight adult. PLEASE ADD YOUR OPINION -CAUSE I THINK HER REASONING IS DUMB

    The reason she is opting not to isn't the best reason, but infant foods and cereals really are not neccessary. Cereal is definitely not something infants need, and many PED's will tell you not to feed your baby cereal at all.

    This. I wouldn't give a baby that young anything except for breastmilk.
    Buuuttt.....yes, her reasoning is pretty dumb!

     You are right. There's no way to know if a baby will be chubby or overweight as an adult just because they are as a baby. With that reasoning I should be small and skinny, because I was a skinny little baby.

    This. Baby foods and cereal are not necessary.

    My son was a large baby and he is not over weight by any means right now. He is bigger then most kids his age, but mostly because he is so tall

    Eating baby foods is okay at six months, but not necessary. Babies only need breastmilk or formula for the first year. Baby food is just practice, and that's perfectly okay.

    Her reasoning is dumb. I was a huge, chubby baby and stayed chubby until I was almost four. Everyone said I looked like a small Michelin Man. Now I'm 5'10 and weigh 130 pounds and wear a size four.

    My one year old daughter was 7 pounds, 1 ounce at birth. Then she got crazy chubby for awhile. Now she is right at average.

    Size as an infant is not indicative of size as an adult, in most cases.
