my daughter was thin, but very healthy. I prefer my children to be lean than fat. some studies suggest FAT babies are more likely to be overweight or obese in childhood and adulthood. if your child is growing mentally and physically (height/weight), that's a lot to be thankful for! :)

If you breastfeed your baby will get chunky SOOOo fast but still be healthy! And as your baby gets chunky YOU get thinner since breastfeeding works out your tummy from the inside! ♥ and the benefits of breastfeeding are endless for you and baby ♥

my baby looked thin with long, spindly chicken legs for a long time and pretty much still is thin. He's happy and energetic, don't worry about it. Chunky babies are cute, but thin is fine as long as they're healthy and gaining weight reasonably.

Your baby doesn't have to be fat to be healthy. As long as they are gaining weight then everything is fine.
