  Is My Baby Over Feeding?

Posted by: admin @ 2:51 pm

Does a baby overeating impact on childhood obesity?

Recent studies show that infants who are sent to babysitters and not watched by their parents on a daily basis tend to weigh more. This may increase the chances of obesity later on in life. Obviously many parents have to send their children to sitters but it is our responsibility to do everything we can to make sure our children do not overeat. What can we do?

We must realize that our babysitters do not know our baby as well as we do. If your baby is screaming your sitter may not know how to sooth her other then to feed her a bottle even if she’s not hungry. It is your job to teach the babysitter what to do if the baby cries. Give her a few other ideas on how to calm your baby.

Leave very clear instructions. Studies are continuously changing on when to introduce solids to your baby. Your caregiver may not be as on top of recent studies as you are. Studies have proven that starting solids earlier than necessary is a common cause of babies being overweight. Make sure to write down exactly what you want your baby to eat, when, and how much.

After you leave the sitter with clear instructions, ask her to keep a feeding log. Ask her to write down exactly when and how much your baby ate while you were away. If she does this, then you will know what his feeding schedule was and will know how to continue the rest of the day.

Good Luck!
