Babies/Toddlers weight

How many of u think chunky/chubby babies are cute or just plain fat? I'm on the cute side btw! And do any of u obsess over ur baby/toddler being chubby now and thinning out later? I know people who obsess over it.

  • Depends. There are cute chubby babies then there are really large chubby babies that aren't cute. Mine was skinny, no cute baby chub.

  • Thats true. I am not referring to the very obese babies though. But a typical magazine baby I think is cute with their chubs! Mine were rather slim, not chubby at all. I prefer chubby. I just think its hilarious and ignorant when people call a chubby baby fat or not cute cuz they are chubby and have small rolls on their arms, legs, etc.

  • Chubby babies are cute. Obese babies are not. They can be set up for lifelong problems. Theres nothing cute about that.

  • I have had both a thin and a chubby baby, and I have to say both can be adorable just as long as it isn't unhealthy for the baby...

  • so far my 1 and only was growing fast, and considered to most chubby, but I didn't see it. But, as you can see he's evened out. And now that's he's changed so much over the year, I can see where he was a chubby baby, but I think it was a cute chubby!!

  • I've had 5 and 4 of them weren't chunky. My 3rd one had rolls when she was around 6 months. I'm not a fan of chubby babies.
