My daughter only takes formula on weekends. She is 23 lbs and breastfed. A customer of mine came in with her daughter who was breastfed for 6 and now formula fed and is 20 lbs. She was told that her daughter was obese. I was wondering how it is that a baby who is fed the proper diet can be obese? Anyone else ever heard of this?

No it's not possible for a breastfed baby to over eat and be considered obese. If your dr has never expressed concern then you definitely shouldn't worry what some other mom says.
