You can't win for losing -- my babies were big, and people would always say, "He's so big, he must be ready for food, your milk is not enough..." I know my friends with thin babies get, "He's so skinny, he needs food, your milk is not enough..."
I couldn't have said it any better than birdinhand. My lo is big and I keep hearing that he's starving and I'm not giving him enough solids. It's annoying.
