My 4 1/2 year old was a micro preemie but now ahe is about 12 lbs over weight. She is very active and doesn't eat or drink a lot of junk foods. She had gained this weight quickly after starting taking all this asthma medication. She just had surgery yesterday and the anethesiologist kinda struck a nerve with me by saying if my 4 year old lose a little weight then she wouldn't have breathing problems.......didn't she see in her charts that she had chronic lung disease? I'm tired of these people looking at me sideways and telling me to make my child lose weight and assume that I feed her junk. I do all I can to make sure she is healthy and she eats and snacks healthy, what else is there to do?
