well, I heard that bf babies are fatter babies, and skinnier kids/adults. FF babies are skinnier babies, but are at a higher risk of being overweight as children/ adults.

My kids were on formula. They are both healthy, rarely ever sick, and tall/skinny.

Im  not sure. My daughter (3) was FF almost entirely. She only had BM for about a month. Shes thin as a rail! My son (21 months) has always been chunky and is just now slimming out, despite being EBF.

 I've always known it to the be the opposite. BF babies have always had more chub that I've known.

My bf'd ds 1 was always around the 10% for weight and bf'd ds 2 has been in the 1% for a long time now. They hit milestones early and are very healthy, just skinny.

My dd was almost 12 pounds, so I am no help, my nephew was ff and he is 28 pounds at 1 and dd is 32, they are to the day one year apart, my firends baby isn't even 20 pounds a 2 and she was bf for a year and ff for 9 of the second year,(her parents are tiny though and she is healthy) so I think it depends on the baby.
