I need to hear that im being a weirdo . I see super chubby babies all the time and my 17 mos old im told is healthy at checkups he weighs 23 lbs and on the growth chart is smack in the middle considering his height too, but hes not near chubby am i doing something wrong these chubby babies in my family seem so healthy and everybody in my family mainly mothers with chubby babies keep saying hes soooo skinny idk am i just letting other peoples opinions sway my thoughts or should i try and put some pounds on him.......

I never had chunky babies past six or seven moths old. One they became mobile they slimmed right down.

My daughter is 17 months and 18lbs. So I gonna say no. Both her and my son are on the small side. Neither were/are chunky babies.

My 18 month old is 24lbs. My daughter was about the same at that age. We could not get her over 30lbs until right before her 4th birthday when she all of a sudden gained 5lbs. She's 4.5 and is still sitting at 34lbs. All the little ones in my family are huge compared to my two. One cousin's baby is a month older than my son and is the size of my 4yr old. I just make short skinny babies.

I've never had any chunky kids, mine are all slim and were from birth.

My 20 month old is 23 lbs 33 inches long. She's always been skinny & long. She has absolutly no baby chup, rolls, or celulite. lol. I think it depends on genes & what you feed your baby. My dd was ebf until 9 months then started solids but is still breastfeeding to this day.

My 17 month old is 19lbs. Fat babies are not healthy babies.
