Bloated belly?

My son is 5 months old and is getting chubby. I noticed a lot of times especially after he eats that his belly looks big and bloated, a little hard. Is this normal, or is it something I should contact the doc about?

  • Normal! Don't contact the doctor unless he gets constipated.

  • Honestly you have to look at yourself and your SO. If you're overweight or chubby your son might just have your body type. My son is a little chubba wubba LOL, but he also has my body shape. He also gets a big ol' belly after eating, but its just because he's full and might need to poop or pass gas. If it's hard, it most likely means he needs to poop.
