Which do you have? My dd is a lean bf baby and all muscle, but I wish so bad that she had tons of baby fat rolls!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Is this just her body type or is there something I can do? fyi-she's 10mo and 18lbs 28.5" and not really interested in solids at all.

Ditto!<br><br>
DD1 and DD2 both fall about the same place on the growth charts, around 80th percentile for height and 10th percentile for weight.<br><br>
DH is long and lean, I'm just long!

Ds is 9 mos & 17 lbs, 29 in... definitely long & lean. I was the same way as a baby, so I think it is just in the genes, not much we can do. The advice I have gotten is to feed good fat foods like avocado & olive oil.<br>
I know what you mean though... I have chubby baby envy too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Those little rolls are just too cute!

Lean here: 9.5 months, 17 pounds. Eats whatever we offer and has had no tummy troubles _ever_ (knock wood), but is pretty skinny. Her thighs are kind of chunky, but her top is small.<br><br>
Like mother, like daughter, I guess. Like Grandma, like ma, like daughter, even.<br><br>
I've been trying eggs, but DH is worried about the cholesterol from getting so much egg yolk. I don't know if I should worry with him - I know babies are supposed to have high fat diets b/c they need the calories, but high fat and high cholesterol are not necessarily the same thing. I can't get good avocados out here to save my life. Any other suggestions, other than deep-fried twinkies? (Tempura fried bananas might be kind of good, maybe I'll try that.)

I've had both <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Currently my nursling is big enough to say she's not thin, but tall enough top not have rolls...does that make sense? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Ok she was rolly polly, but she has gotten longer and leaner.<br><br>
The one before her was tiny and thin...he still is.<br><br>
The 2 before that were big lolol <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

long with rolls!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
DH and I are short and thin (well I was before I had my baby anyway <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> ) so I don't know where it comes from!!!

I've had two lean, muscly breastfed babies now. It made no difference to their body types when they started to eat a lot more solids, either. They're just on the lean side. I hope for their sake that they can stay that way! I'm doing my best to help them have healthy dietary habits.<br><br>
My older one at 12 months was just under 20 pounds, and this little one was 18.6 pounds at 12 months. They've both been sized for easy babywearing!<br><br>

I got a chunker here <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> at 2 months she was 16 lbs 4 oz. I don't know what she is now at almost 3 months, but I imagine she's gained some.

DD started off chubby (10 lbs at birth) but now at 9 months she is a bit leaner. I'm not sure how much she weighs, but she definitely didn't stay on the same growth curve she was on!
