I am sending this comment again b/c I think it did not go through......
I understand the focus on the prenatal mother's weight and I agree fully, but we should also take into account the postnatals mother's weight, as well. Taking care of a new born, no leass a toddler takes a tremendous amount of physical energy. I couldn't imagine caring for my infant with another with another 50 pounds on my body. I wonder how a mother's interaction with her infant and subsequent care is affected by her level of obesity.
