Re: Rant...the constant "skinny" baby comments

DS was a skinny baby, and now DD2 is a chunker I nursed them the same way, so it's just the way they are.

But you could point out that formula fed babies who are chubby actually form different kinds of fat cells than chubby breastfed babies, and are more likely to be overweight when they get older. A chubby breastfed baby can easily be a slim adult (I know, that's me!) A chubby breastfed baby is healthy. A chubby formula fed baby is chubby.
