Well unless the doctor is overly concerned or the baby has a medical problem I would not try to slim down a baby . All babies are different sizes and shapes and they all grow at their own pace . My babies all were big and chubby but all of them outgrew it and are normal and healthy


Lucas is a very big baby, pretty chunky and very tall though. I don't think he needs to slim down at all. Every baby is so different and they can be pretty big. Once they get to crawling and walking/running around, they'll probably slim down too. If the doc isn't worried, then I'm not worried. :)


Babies use the fat to help their brain develop (or so I've been told). They will slim down when they start crawling and walking.
