According to this article, starting infants on solids before six months of age increases the risk of obesity. So let’s add that to the grand list of Things We’re Doing Wrong:
- Started solids at five months
- Slept in his own room early on
- Cried it out
- Disposable diapers
- Non-organic pesticide-filled food
- Watches TV (had identified Moe from the Doodlebops as his favourite character)
Parents are also not entirely slim (although his mum has gone all fit n’ foxy at forty due to the weight she’s lost, which I, in turn, found). Add that to a pending move to NB, one of the Canada’s heavier provinces, and he just really doesn’t stand a chance.
Odd that, knock on wood, he hasn’t had much more than the odd cold.
