    I've just been looking at photos of Chloe and I'm convinced she's too chubby, looking at pics of other LO she seems much fatter. Her arms seem really chubby as well as her face. What do you think? Please be honest!!

    babies are supposed to be a bit chubby. It's a survival mechanism thing! My aunt (hv) says that the cleverest babies feed lots and put on lots of weight to start with. Then they relax, feed less and put on less weight because they know they have a good mummy!

    That said i worry that Ally is chubby. Although, that was earlier this week/last week. Now I'm worrying he's not eating enough lol. They just want to make us worry ;)

    Chubby? Maybe a little but my nephew weighed 16 lbs at 8 weeks. Now THAT'S chubby! The doctor said it's better to be chubby. When he would get ill and not eat for a couple of days, nobody worried. Now he's starting to walk and he's thinning out. We can finally see that yes, he does have wrists!:rofl:

    Don't worry. She's perfect.

    She is beautiful! thats how babies should be (just want to add as not to offend anyway, that slim can be normal too of course.. not saying you're doing anything wrong if you have a skinny baby).

    Here is Bethanie when she was more of a chubalub:

    A healthy, happy little girl!!

    Do not worry, when they start to crawl/walk it will drop off!! I used to worry and think people were thinking the same.. the doctors tried to say we overfed her, but she is long and she is going to be tall. Shes almost the height of loads of the 3 year olds at the toddler play area! Your little girl may be the same.

    :hugs:

    She's perfectly normal. Caitlyn was what the HV said "on her way to obesity" in her first few months. Now she's gradually going back down the chart. She went from 25th percentile to 91st in a matter of weeks, now she is going back down to 75th. So what if they are chubby when they're babies. Now she is getting more active she's already burning it off!

    Also, I think I read that Chloe is a very hungry baby? Caitlyn polished off 21 oz in the space of 4 hours once. I didn't know that was wrong, and I should have, but it hasn't done her any harm being fed when she said she was hungry. They're both gorgeous little girls!
