Major Growth Spurt and Weight Gain!
My son Joshua has always been in the 95% since he was born. He's a big boy, his hands are almost the size of mine and he won't be 8 til early April.
I've always been able to keep up on his sizes in clothes but since early spring last year I have not been able to keep him in clothes, shoes, coats, hats, underwear...you name it. He now stands at 4 feet 6 inches and weights 79 lbs. With so much growing he has put on some belly fat, which I find a bit odd because through all of this he still eats the same, active in swimming, hockey and playing.
He was never ever a big food kid, loves to drink and still does .... he does have moments when he eats more than others but generally when he's going through a growth...he's bigger than the average 7/8 year old....more 9/10....not heavy at all but this belly fat has me concerned.
He eats very little if any junk ..... any ideas, opinions. Will he grow into this or is this something I should be concerned about, I just don't know where it would have come from....he doesn't even like candy!
Any ideas, suggestion, anybody else have a little boy who this happened to!
