Must be genetic, early photos of me show the same.
It does eventually go away... I had a nice flat stomach after that... right up until I discovered beer and wings in college
In all seriousness, though, I love her belly. She was "diagnosed" FTT in infancy and was very tiny and skinny (to sum the whole ordeal WAY up), so when the belly finally came I was quite overjoyed.
My dd is almost 15 months old, and she has a pot belly. The funny thing is, she is only in the 7th percentile for weight. So she is this super skinny thing with a pot belly! Its so cute!
Homeschooling mom to four kids, ages 18, 18, 10, and 6.
Ds loves to eat, and he still nurses a lot. And his belly starts off smaller in the morning and looks huge by nighttime as well! All the kids we know are really skinny, I mean REALLY skinny, so I think in comparison he looks even "bigger" to everyone.
It's actually nice to know there are other kids out there with pot bellies. I always thought it was normal, but out of like 15 children his age I can think of off the top of my head that we know, only 2 or 3 of them have pot bellies!

DD looks slim from the back but she has a cute tummy if you see her from the side. Her ped hasn't said anything about it so I'm not too concerned. Even with the tummy, DD is still in the 55-60% percentile for weight though she's taller than average for height.
Twinmom - thanks for that heads up. I checked out Celiac Disease on Goggle and I don't see the symptoms in my DD but you did everyone a service by mentioning it.
It's pretty gratifying, frankly. At least the calories are showing up somewhere. (And she does get pudgier before a growth spurt, too. Her cheeks look fuller, her belly is big and seems more solid, and then she wakes up taller. And more lean for awhile. The pot belly doesn't go away completely, though. Or at least, it starts right up again.)
Having a pot belly doesn't really keep her pants from falling down, though. Cloth diapers are our only salvation in that department.
