  • I would say cut back on the snacks and milk. This is what we had to do with my DD to get her to eat at meal times.

  • My kids were like that too. I always wondered how they survived on so little. Just make sure what she does eat is healthy. Cheese sticks, yogurt, fruit, etc. What does she want when she wakes up at night? Is she hungry?

  • Remember she is probably getting in the last of her baby teeth! So she may wake in the night because her gums hurt. She'll eat when she's hungry. Only offer nutritious foods. What has the Pediatrician said about her weight?
