New Approach To Weight Loss?

I don't know what it is about parents these days, but they ALL seem to think their baby has reflux. And not just reflux, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). Babies spit up, that's what they do..well that and eat and poop.

This mom tried to tell me her 2 1/2 month old 17 POUND BABY, wholy crap, has reflux. Uhhh.. if your 2 1/2 month old baby has tripled it's birth weight, pretty sure he's keeping something down. Then she actually says to me, "I think he weighs too much, maybe I should start giving him food since he is so hungry."

 I can't fathom how this woman went from my baby is fat to I should feed him more... Maybe I've had this weight loss thing wrong all along and what I really need to do is just eat some extra ding dongs...

*Just to clarify, I do not advocate weight loss for babies, nor have I ever eaten a ding dong


  1. Thanks, finally a weight loss plan I can stick to. Maybe she should wright a book on how to loose weight while eating more if you are already overweight.

  2. She should team up with the lady who told me she lost weight by eating bacon!

  3. But did you know that bacon has NO CARBS?! It's so healthy! LOL! Maybe these moms should get together- bacon baby food! They could make millions!

  4. WHAT?!? That's crazy. I'm all for empowering moms to make choices for their babies, but some moms really make me wonder.
