I read in the paper that it was like the british medical journal recommending that non walking infants need exercise,which ok sounds logical enough but all I can think about is that I've rarely seen a child over four months just lay there and do nothing hence according to said study if they are playing they are exercising.
Maybe I just haven't seen enough babies and toddlers in my lifetime or maybe I'm just thinking of my son who we have a harder time getting to stop moving then start. What babies let alone toddlers need to be helped and encouraged to play instead of just laying there doing nothing?
I also still have a hard time believing that being a chubby or even fat baby means that much for your adult life speaking as the baby who's ankles were too skinny to walk properly with my fat rest of me(yes I was breastfed until age 2 actually and about 90% of the kids I know that are BFed are kind of fat babies so it seems really natural to me) and am now at a very healthy BMI and have been since age 4 with NO work.
When did baby fat become bad and why? I'm really interested in the answer.
