Do you guys think that there is such a thing about count calories for babies like there is for adults…, my baby is a little chubby and I would like to know if he is taking to many calories for day or not… don’t take me wrong I do not want to put him on a diet just control excess if there is some.

dont start counting calories for your baby! unless your doctor says ur child needs to be on a diet i wouldnt put him on one... and its normal for babies to be chubby... they usually grow outta it once then get more active.

I wouldn't restrict his calorie intake unless your doctor has advised it. Both mine were big babies (9lbs6oz and 9lbs 2oz) and stayed quite "chubby" until they were up and running around. They grow so quickly that they need everything you give them! x

Never heard of it! Talking to a doctor may be your better bet. Good luck!
