I even let her pick out what she wants to eat, I dont know what to do, I am scared to go to the Dr with it cuz she hasnt gained weight since the first of the year and now I am able to see her ribs when she streches, we have a ton of food in our house for her to pick form and when we go shopping we let her pick out food just for her also, I am the end of my nerves I am so scared she is going to tell the wronge person I dont feed her and they believe her and my kids get taken from me. what can I do?????Answer Question

I had the same problem with my son except he didn't tell people that we weren't feeding him. The doc said toddlers often need less food than they did during the early baby years because growth tapers off a bit.
But I would call your doctor and just tell them what is going on and ask them to check her and asses if her growth is normal. Don't be afraid. Many parents have this problem, it won't be the first time they have heard of it.
