This is a rant and I'm trying to let it go but it has really gotten under my skin.
My dad posted a photo of my son on Facebook and one of his friends said, "dang what are y'all feeding him? Looks like he needs to be on a diet!"
My baby is 10 months and was born 5 weeks early weighing just over 5 pounds. He stayed around 5 percentile or less for a while but is 30 percentile in weight now and finally 25 percentile in height after being less than 3 percentile since birth. He has a lot of rolls but is not fat nor near overweight.
But who says that a baby needs to be on a diet?! Joking or not I don't believe it is ever ok to joke about someone's weight. It would be very hurtful and wrong to say this to an adult so why is it ok to say it about a baby?
I don't know I guess I'm just being immature in getting upset and letting it bother me. Maybe it's because I'm a first time mom or just too sensitive. But wanted to know what others felt about the open comments from others about babies and their size. Thank you for reading.
