    Default Chubby Cheeks and bf

    This is just a silly little question but is it true that bf babies have chubby cheeks because of how hard they work their muscles to nurse? I have had a number of people tell me that about my ds and I was wondering how much of it was true.

    I don't think it sounds accurate. It is true that BF helps them develop stronger jaw muscles (which helps prevent sleep apnea both as a baby and in adulthood) but I don't see why it will cause any visible difference.
