Hello,

What do you mean when you say "banana baby"? I ask - because the only time I have ever heard that was from Dr. Sears (a pediatrician/author) who uses the term to describe babies who are tall and skinny - instead of the baby chubbiness that most people expect. I didn't realize the term went back several years and I am curious?

Thanks,

Amy

There was a very interesting thread, with links provided by Ms_Sillyak, about this last year:

I wasn't officially a banana baby... I am 23 and was just diagnosed with celiac 2 weeks ago. My mother tells me that I had chronic diarrhea as a baby. Gross, right? Who knew it would take so long to get properly diagnosed?!! LOL.
