Although I do my research, read articles, hear others opinions, etc.... I don't just take one and fly with it! However, I EBF and we majorly delayed solids, it was 6 months before we gave him his first soft foods, we skipped pureed foods all together, and at 8.5 months he doesn't really eat anything but breastmilk still! So according to that study, Connor should be stick thin :D LOL

And to make the statistics look even odder....

My ds started solids/cereal at 4 months, was fed formula etc... and he was always underweight.
