Possible error

How is it that baby Matt Parkman has powers? I thought that he was not the son of Matt Parkman since Matt left Janice for cheating. Therefore, 1, baby Matt should not have powers and 2. Baby matt is not son of adult matt.

just cause she was cheating doesn't mean it wasn't his baby

agree with sensrule. It was always going to be Matt's child, otherwise, whats the point of bringing them into the storyline. They said ages ago that there was a possibility of Janice appearing again.

No, I agree with the OP. In 2x04, "The Kindness of Strangers", Matt tells Nathan how he and Janice are divorced because while he could forgive her for the affair, he couldn't forgive that the baby wasn't his. The writers have pulled a fast one, I think, changing the story to it always being his, and that he should have know it was his because of his telepathy.

I'm on sensrule's side here, I think. As far as I know, it was never absolutely determined who the father of Janice's baby was and Matt only assumed he wasn't it. But, having not actually gone back and watched the pertinent episodes to check, I'm mostly going on faith that the continuity-checker over in Heroesville is fairly competent and wouldn't have let something that wrong fall through the cracks.
And, of course, there is always the possibility that Toddler-Touch-And-Go just has his own mutation and is starting a new line of people with powers. As Angela Petrelli pointed out just a few episodes ago, genetics is complicated.

Oh, I think it's Matts now; it's just that it was said before that it wasn't.
From the transcript of TKoS:
NATHAN: Look, I don't -- I'm sorry, I don't really know you that well.
MATT: My wife--my ex-wife ... uh ... cheated on me. Which I could've forgiven her for, except for the fact that she was pregnant with his baby.
NATHAN: Why are you telling me all this?
MATT: I just -- I know a bunch of stuff about you. I figure it's only fair.
NATHAN: If you want to unload, go ahead.
MATT: Six months ago, I was a cop in LA. Married, expecting a child, and then all of a sudden this stuff started happening. It just turned everything upside down. I'm just looking for answers.

wasn't Matt's assumption here that the baby wasn't his because he read Janice's mind? I can't recall that far back, but I thought he found out because he was reading her mind. She thought the baby wasn't his and that's what Matt heard her say in her mind.

surely he cant find out if the baby was his using his telepathy if she was unsure, he can only know what she knows. So untill she knows for sure he can only tell that it may or may not be his. N giving she named her son matt it goes to show she's now sure its his n not a result of the affair. Yet another uncertanty the writters left us with to come back n kick uss in the teeth. :)

Wasn't there an episode where Janice is mad at Matt for abandoning them, in a dream or something Matt had?

@ Kingofthezyx: That was part of the trippy telepathy land Parkman's dad trapped Matt and Nathan in. I believe it was an episode or two after the one tvqueen cited.

I considered the same question but like most people said, the writers left it ambiguous so I'm sure they'll come together again at some point and he'll all be like "OMG I thought it wasn't my kid you said so in your thoughts" and she'll be like, "I thought so too", then they'll all have a big laugh and everything can be happy again and then Hiro will steal the baby and keep him in a backpack or something so that he can at least stop time or make himself go really fast as we saw that he doesn't actually stop time since Daphne was able to move still that one time.
