    Hi guys I'm a bit worried that Owens looking chubby!! He is weaning and on milk and I've tried to balance every thing out. Is it usual for babies to be chubby before they start to crawl. I know that the exercise helps keep them in shape but he can't crawl yet. At the moment he sleeps 6.30 - 6.30-am. Has 8 oz when he wake up. Jar of breakfast food at 9.15, 5 oz milk at 10.15, a small yoghurt at 12.30, juice at 1.30, pot for dinner at 4.00 and bath and 8oz milk at 6.30. I've tried to go health visitor to check but they gave me wrong details and il be back to work when the hv r back. I dunno if this is a good meal plan ? In thinking of removing the 10am milk too? I just am not sure if he eating too much or its a normal phase??Any advice would be much appreciated xxx. Here he is...

    Our Owen is also a chubby one! We did blw so not sure about food wise but think sounds fine. I would say don't cut the milk as that's they're main source of nutrients,

    I do worry about our Owen being a big boy but he eats well and runs all day long,now 15 months, hes always been sturdy iykwim. I would try not to worry, easy to say though!! And lovely pic too!

    He looks totally normal sized to me. Maybe if you're worried stop the jars and just give him plain fruit or stuff you make yourself? At least you k ow exactly what is going into it then. We're doing blw...

    I think it sounds fine Hun. He'll probably lose it all when he's more mobile. And don't worry about the jars :)

    The good
    Thing about babies is that they eat when they're hungry - not when they are emotional like us! So I'm guessing if he's eating, he'll stop when he doesn't want anymore???

    He doesn't look chubby, he looks yummy, it will all balance out later on- try not to worry, he is having the same feeds as we did at the same age, and only dropped to 3 full meals and milk from 7mths

    he doesn't look chubby, but even if he was why does that matter? Babies are meant to be chubby, baby fat helps brain development. I am sure he will be perfectly fit as he grows x

    Hello hun just wanted to put your mind at rest as your little one is totally perfect and normal, babies are supposed to get a bit chubby (even though he doesn't look chubby to me) its completely normal as once he starts crawling he will be using up more of his reserved energy so please try not to worry, you have a beautiful little boy there xx

    He looks perfect to me hun!

    You should have seen Georgie's cheeks before she started rolling lol Everyone commented on her being chunky and made me paranoid!

    Every baby is different and will have different tastes/needs etc don't try and get him to conform xx

    gosh I wish I had a picture of my nephew on my computer to show you. We called him bruiser when he was a baby. He had THE chubbiest face I have ever seen! He is now a fit and healthy 8 year old boy, tall and skinny! The size they are as babies doesnt mean he is going to be a fat child! Ignore em, people are full of crap! xx
