Of course it's tactless - everybody is aware of the negative connotations of the word "fat". A young mother, completely exhausted from the birth, hormones driving her on an emotional roller coaster and fiercely protective of her baby doesn't need to hear stupid comments like that. Anyway - OP, there is nothing like a fat baby. Babies need to gain weight as quickly as possible this whole category just doesn't apply to them.
How is this an FML? The chubby babies are usually the cutest and the healthiest. Fat babies are the best.
You should of replied "Look, its those wrinkled prunes that go around insulting newborn babies". That'll teach them ;DD
6.5 pounds isn't fat. It's not a fat baby until it's more than 9 pounds.
