As a mother myself, I know that I can't stand when someone tries to step in and tell me that I am doing something wrong or that I should do something different..so this makes my little situation a tough one..
My friend is starting to concern me with what and how much she is feeding her 4 month old baby. This baby already has juice, is on every kind of baby food out there (even the ones with meat), and she even lets him chew on bread sticks and pizza crust when they order out (which is quite often). At birth he was 6lbs 4oz, and now at 4 months old he is 21lbs! She sends me pictures daily of him and although I think chunky babies are ADORABLE, hers looks as if he cant breath through his fat rolls. I would like to tell her that I am a little concerned and that maybe she should slow down on this. What is the rush on getting your baby on all of this stuff so soon? But i'm afraid she would get offended and it would affect our friendship. I know this is the doctor's job as well to step in and say something but I am not all that sure that her doctor KNOWS everything this baby is consuming. WIC told her he was definitely off the charts with his weight and gave her a few tips on it. I'm just concerned for him. Her and her boyfriend are both are large people (He's obese and she is borderline).. so he's definitely got the genes to turn out the same way. What would you do?

While you were pregnant was your doctor not so gracious about giving you...
