Yes because I believe it's child abuse and if she didn't listen we wouldn't be friends.

:shock: like she's making him eat that much? My LO is 8 months and the only time he eats 10 oz at once is occasionally right before bed. He's usually eats 6 oz and that's only about 4 bottles a day plus solids. 10 oz every two hours is crazy at only 4 months old.

Idk why she's proud? That's weird. I mean you should never force feed your kid, they eat when they're hungry. If he keeps throwing up that's definitely bad, poor baby. :(

That's really sad :( poor kids, they don't know any better. Shame on the parents. It's one thing to be an adult and make shitty choices for yourself, and decide to be obese...but completely another to push that on your children. You'd think if the parents are obese, they would know what it feels like to be left out of things for being so fat/made fun of-and would want a "better life" for their kids. I think it all comes down to being lazy and selfish to be honest! Have you ever said anything to the parents? You must be thinking of it if you haven't yet....

I know. She was a big baby, that's my point. Once she started walking it all came off so I realized that she was just a naturally chunky baby. This could be the same case for her friend

I talk about how big my son is getting, but he is EBF and 24 lbs. He eats every 4 hours though. I have asked my pediatrician every time I see her if he is getting too big, but she keeps telling me that because he is breastfed not to worry.

Yeah, I might casually mention something about it if the kid is obese because of what they are eating and not for medical or genetic reasons. Strangers say shit to me about my large baby, who is active, eats healthy, and breastfeeds. I would hope a pediatrician has talked to your friend. Sorry if you already explained all this, I just skimmed through.

Wtf :? My LO has torticollis too, he has a PT lady come every week to do stretches and other stuff. She was just here today. I have to do stretches with him daily and he had to have tons of tummy time, he still does but now that he crawls and cruises he's up moving around all the time. Mine hated tummy time but he got over it once he started sitting and stuff. People are ridiculous.

Yep it's so sad. When ever anyone says anything to her about feeding him like crap shes just like aww leave him alone he's a baby. The doctors have told her many times that she needs to put him on a diet but she won't.

I don't see your point... At 41 weeks that isn't a big baby
