Quick post

Got my 5k walked today...

Attended the last part of my non-violent crisis intervention training.

Though, like when I took the CPR course, it made me all anxiety-ridden and panicky.

Off to bed for now - didn't have much net time today.

OH and before I sign off... I was reading a couple of articles re: how early solids are introduced to babies relating to obesity and how crap food can effect IQ scores.

It made me remember those Maury Povich episodes about obese children.

Here are the article links:

Processed, Fatty Foods May Dumb Down Your Kids: Study

Giving Baby Solid Foods Too Early Linked to Obesity Later

And here are the 5 youtube links to one of those Maury eps... - Maury part 1
part 2
part 3
part 4
part 5

For the record... because I was adopted - I was formula fed.  And back in those days it was popular to give a baby "sweet water" which was corn syrup mixed with boiled water in a bottle.

  2. My daughter is almost 10 years old and this info was around when she was a baby. As a first time mom, i tried to do everything by the book, breastfed her as long as i could and didn't introduce solids until she was around 7 months old, and only then homemade pureed fruit and veg once a day.

    She is happy and healthy and a normal weight , and always has been, but by the same advice, i have a cousin who is two years older than her, whose mother followed the same advice, who is now the worlds pickiest eater and terribly thin. And when i say picky eater, i mean only eats white-coloured soft things- yea, eating disorder type of picky.

    You do your best, but you can't always win, plus the advice for new mothers seems to change every couple of years


  3. I have been taking the solids slow with my daughter and making all her food (except cereal and rice crackers) myself. I loike knowing exactly what I am giving her.

  4. Way to go on the 5k. Keep it up!!
