My son is 13 months now and 25 lbs. His doctor told me he needs to lose 4 lbs. He is skinny but has a huge belly. Im giving him lowfat milk and water instead of juice but im wondering if theres anything else i can do? Will he thin out naturally? Will his potbelly get smaller in a few months? Help

yes he will thin out naturally my DD was almost 30 lbs at that age too now she is thin as can be and Tall, but Kids are suppose to have whole milk for the fats until age 2??? Look at what he/she is eating through out there day as well

My son was 24 lbs at 8 months old and I was not told to make him loose weight. By age one he was 30 pounds but was also 33 plus inches tall. He is now over 6 feet tall and weighs about 190 and is fine.
