BF vs FF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am a huge advocate for breastfeeding,  But the whole "ff babies are fat, unlike bf babies"  is really starting to annoy me.  I have 4 kids.  I have bf 3.  My oldest wasn't.  He was ff.  And guess what?  He is the skinniest of all of my kids! My younger 3 were all chunky babies, and even now as toddlers, they are "solid".  So even though al of my kids eat healthy, the 3 that were bf are on the bigger side while my 1 that was ff is on the smaller side.

Dorian was FF

Billie, Anastasia, and Brian were BF

What is your experience with this????

I don't have any pics of ds on my phone when he was a baby. He was FF and average sized. He's a solid boy at 3.

Your kids are all adorable and look happy and healthy.

this is my 6 yr old (we are at the Autism Speaks walk in Honolulu) he is currently the size of an average 9 yr old at 4'2 and 60lbs. He was formula fed.

Your kiddos are totally cute :D

omg, i want to squish those cheeks in the last picture!!!!

i don't even bother with the whole FF vs BF thing; in fact, i think it's stupid because it's no one's business but the mother's and the child's.

i had no idea there was even a "Debate" until i came on to CM.  between all of my girlfriends and family, some FF and some BF and we all support each other. actually, none of us care as long as the baby is healthy and happy!

btw, dd was FF and she's a skinny little thing.  even now, the girl eats like a freaking machine and has stayed at 30lbs forever!! she's very tall though.

Here are my girls. Both boobie babies. Except for two months with the oldest, and then she weaned at a year.

I don't think BF or FF is the be all end all in our future health. My BF baby is a lot chunkier than my FF baby and he started solids later.
