  • is it a concern for the Drs at all? My son is very tiny but never off the scale, he's just very active and doesnt care about food. I make sure to offer him tons of snacks and he still goes through growth spurts of extreme eating lol

  • Well she is about 4 lbs lighter then she should be and she dont like to eat she is verry picky and verry active. My husband says i worry to much but every time i talk to the doc she says shes not where she sould be.

  • I am always told they will not starve themselves. leave out and offer foods that are healthy and good and try to get a mealtime routine where she has to at least sit with you guys.. that's what I am trying.. also, be careful on too many sweets or they tend to push away "real food" when its time.
