Sems like every where I go someone is saying something about my DD's weight.... she is 14 1/2 months old, and weighs 27 pounds and she is approx 32 inches tall.... Even her doctor will sit at her appt and say "how are you chunky girl".... the fat nurse says "Oh! Isnt she a big one?"(Yes, I do look at people and think things, but would never point it out or say it to them, Example: I wouldnt tell the nurse she looks fat)... Today at walmart, not just a shopper, but an EMPLOYEE walked by and said "OMG, Did you see how freakin big that baby was?!?!?" to her co-worker. When I brought this to managements attention the lady looked at me like I was wrong for being offended and asked if I knew the woman..Come on now, if I knew her I would be taking it up with her and not an assistant manager. This is what lead moms and fathers to not feeding their children and them having anorexic problems.... WHat are some of your views on this

I suspect that your family would benefit from a consultation with a nutritionist or a dietician; If Dr. Phil is one of these, then by all means make an appointment. Here is the problem: by the end of next year, one have of American children will be both undernourished and overweight; one third of American children will develop type 2 diabetes in their lifetime. Increase the healthy foods that our family eats: fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes. Read labels; don'tbuy foods with high fructose corn syrup.
Here is a link to the Canadian food pyramid; it is much less influenced by Big Ag than the US pyramid:

Well I have a Daughter who's 14 months and she weighs 24.5lbs and is 32 inches long and no one ever says she's over weight not even her Dr. She might just be a healthy baby and if you know you don't over feed her then I wouldn't worry about it.
