  • Have you taken her to the doctor to rule out any physical reason? Like thyroid problems, etc? Also you should put her on a good exercise program. Maybe take up exercise with her and make it fun so it is bonding time for the two of you. Good luck!

  • get her outside more... i noticed my toddler getting some xtra lbs during winter but now that its summer and we stay outside for at least 2 hours each day he's slimmed down some!

  • My toddler is 2 1/2 and is having that same problem I give her healthy food watch her portions and she gets tons of exercise yet she isn't even 3 and she is already out of toddler clothes. I took her to her doctor and he didn't really say much about it she is in the 95th percentile for height and weight. I can't explain it.

  • Take her to the doctor. She may have a thyroid problem.
