The habit of overeating is laid in infancy
Today, many young children suffer from obesity. Scientists were able to establish that childhood obesity is associated with the habit of overeating, which is laid in infancy.
Experts analyzed data from 8,000 families and found that the clinical obesity of children aged 24 months is associated with overfeeding in infancy.
Scientists analyzed the methods and amounts of feeding children up to a year and came to the conclusion that many families have a habit of forcing a child to drink up the whole bottle mix, they believe that this habit increases the risk of obesity by 2.5 times compared to children who are on breastfeeding.

Also, many parents put their children to bed with a bottle, this habit is also harmful, because it increases the risk of childhood obesity by 36%. Another factor affecting the occurrence of obesity, consider early supplements (up to 4 months), which increases the risk of obesity by 40%.
Experts note that those babies who are breastfed have the ability to stop eating when they are full, unlike children who eat bottle mixes. Scientists believe that this skill can be developed and when feeding from a bottle, so that the baby from an early age learns to control its saturation and does not eat too much. The most important thing is not to force the child to drink everything from the bottle and not to put him to bed with her.
