My 3 year old complains (I say complains because she just plain ol' whines about it) that she is hungry nearly constantly. She will eat a normal meal-sometimes adult sized, and within 10 minutes it's, "I'm hungry!" Everyday, non-stop sometimes. I'm just not sure whether she's full of it or is truely hungry. I feel like I'm over feeding her and while she IS a very heavy child, she is not "fat". When she says she is hungry, I always offer her something to drink thinking she is actually thirsty, despite having a cup or two of something with her food. Then, I will offer her something healthy like fruit or veggies.
My midwife asked if we've had her growth hormone checked and we haven't since her ped sees nothing wrong with her growth since it's been steady and has not spiked at all. Should I? What else should I look out for?
Any input on this? Anything I should be looking out for?
