Or which parent had the greatest influence on your weight?
Well, there’s a study that seems to have answered this question.
The research is ongoing, but the study of 1,000 parents and newborns found that fathers determine height and mothers determine weight.
This isn’t all that surprising since the baby gets all of his or her nutrients from the mother — so if the mother is overweight, then this can lead to a bigger baby.
As for height, the study found that when the father was tall, the baby tended to be longer and heavier.

My favorite things to write about are topics that have to do with pregnancy, weddings, saving money, living green, and life with dogs. When I’m not writing, I love to spend time with my husband, read, create 3D artwork and Native American beadwork.
