Overfeeding an infant often causes the baby discomfort because he or she can’t digest all of the food properly. When fed too much, a baby may also swallow air, which can produce gas, increase discomfort in the belly, and lead to crying.
An overfed baby also may spit up more than usual and have loose stools.
In an article appeared on CoolBuster, You’ll see a video of what appears to be a woman overfeeding a baby. The baby was having a difficult time breathing yet the woman consistently filling the young child’s mouth with food. You can just imagine the trauma caused by such inappropriate behavior of the guardians.
It was also unclear whether or not the woman on the video over-feeding the baby and the man who was laughing on the background while taking the video are the child’s parents.
