According to a research infant’s weight is directly proportional with mother’s weight. Women who are lean & fit may have babies
who are also leaner & vice versa.
In a study of mothers & their newborns, British researchers have found that women who had relatively high percentage of body
fat tended to have fatter babies.Babies with high birth weight are at an increased risk of obesity later in their life.
Although everyone likes chubby babies but it is wise for mothers to maintain healthy weight by quiting smoking , avoiding alcohol &
consuming balance diet before & during pregnancy.
