  • My 2 year old refuses to eat! My other 2 were always eating, and my 1 year old neice is that way too! I'd take the chow hounds over the picky ones anyday! I worry all the time that he's not eating enough, or getting the proper nutrients. We've talked to the dr many times. It drives me crazy!

  • My sons (twins) consumed an amazing amount of food. I seriously was amazed at the quantity they could handle at once. They still eat a lot, but it seems to have leveled off some now that they are 3 1/2. I think it does relate to periods of intense growth/development. It comes & goes, now, and sometimes they don't eat as much. But still, the amount they could hold or take in at a single time was what got me. Seemed like a big quantity to be able to fit!
