My neice is 16 months old, currently wears a sz 18months in clothes and just seems fat to me. Her stomach is big, but I guess baby's are supposed to befat, I don't know. When I play with her, I just chase her around and she starts crying and be ready to quit all early. But anyways, is it possible torestrict calories without depriving the body of something needed for it's development? Because if it was up to me, she'd be on Atkins or something, buti'm afraid she might lose her motor skills or something.
