    Totally agree. I don't use anti-bs and really wish doctors wouldn't prescribe them for colds because when we do need them it would be nice if they worked.

    Default Giving babies antiboitics linked to obesity

    My DD had antibiotics at only a few days old for an infection and she's a petite 13kg at 4 years old. So it's not true for us.

    Hopefully 'they' will work out what exactly an obese child is first. My dd is classed as overweight according to some charts and my DS is obese on similar charts.

    Both kids are within 10% (expressed in kg's) of their height less 100cm's and both wear the same clothes size as per their age or smaller, neither child gets very much crap to eat, both walk to school and home again and both play sport or dance 2~3 times per week.

    And before we start the judge mcjudgy finger pointing, I hope 'they' will allow for other causes of a child being overweight and 'they' will also allow for the child who pudges up before they shoot up. I know when both my kids are about to grow, they both get a pot belly and a chubby face and within a few weeks they grow several cm's.

    Also hope 'they' will stopped the ad's on tv and media that give children unrealistic expectations of what 'normal' is.

    I also hope, most of all, that the message is about being healthy, not skinny.
