I went to my WIC appt to get my new checks and im pregnant so I was added to the case. The weighed me and my son.

I found out that my weight gain so far is fine and that im actually not even 5'3" when my whole adult life I've been old im 5'4" by drs...but whatever.

She took my 3yo weight and height. I don't remember the measurments. Just that she said he's 25% on height and 80% on weight and that maybe I should think about putting him on a diet...yeah she looked at me and said he's a little on the big side, maybe you should put him on a diet....I was so pissed.

He's not fat, he's literally just stocky, my xh, his father is 5'8" and weighs like 260-270...he's a bigger guy. But there isn't any fat on my baby.

Do y'all think he's fat? He's the one in the green polo.

**oh yeah and wic requirements for my state is $1, 000/wk....I dont make anywhere near thar much. I do work though. Im a home aide. I am still eligible for a lot of assistance because I am a single mom. I have 2 kids nd I have custody of both of them...so don't even bring that shit up**

Woah! I've never been able to update the op from my phone...anyway...

**edit**He's 3, almost 4 and he's 40lbs and I believe he's 39in tall.

I support the WIC program but they need better education on nutrition and height/weight measurements. Your story is only too common.

I am well aware of that. But my son is not. And unfortunately for my ex he wasn't either until hs. His whole family is fat though. Due to poor eating habits. He was just like my son until he was about 14 or so.

Other than those completely adorable cheeks he doesn't look like he has a drop of baby fat left on him!
