Do you make sure your baby finishes their entire bottle before bedtime? That may put your infant at risk of an overweight future.

Researchers at University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill examined these and other parenting behaviors.

They found nearly half of parents surveyed put their infant to bed with a bottle, and many of them exposed their babies to television watching.

Researchers parents should break these habits as soon as possible because their baby's weight may be at stake.
