If my baby is in the 95th percent in weigth and still eats every 2 hours 24 hours a day? Is he Fat/overweight? Or can I trust he will level out soon? One Dr says he will level out another says I need to withhold feedings at night.
PLEASE ADVISE

Hi

I have done a page on this...think it should help...

Can you overfeed a breastfed baby?

I don’t think he will get overweight due to the rate at which he eats. There are chances that the child may even appear underweight even though he do eat a lot during this period. It would be better if you kept a track on him.
