    Default Chubby baby because of formula?

    Hi guys
    I have been giving my baby formula as well as bf and he is getting so chub .. Is this what formula does? He eats a lot too starts on my breast then i give a bottle after if he is still fussing. I actually love his chubbyness but don't want it to be bad for him or him to keep gaining like crazy. He is 6 weeks old and 5.4kg..

    DD1 was express breast milk fed until 3 weeks old and she was a chubby bubba from birth, still is and she is nearly 5. DD2 was formula fed from birth she is like a twig. Formula doesn't make then chubby any more then breast milk will.

    My BF baby had rolls on his rolls I don't think it matters how they're fed, it's just the way they are

    Why are you giving formula on top of the breast?

    I wouldnt worry about him gaining weight atm. He is so little and who doesnt love a chubba bubba. I would worry if he was losing weight.
