Should I worry about my baby's weight?
My son is 20 months old. Everyone tells me that it is good that he likes to eat everything in sight and he will lose all of his baby weight once he's more active. He has been walking/running for some time now, but it seems he is getting chunkier. I'm not worried about that. He is in a good height weight range for his age. I just worry, because he seems to eat his emotions. A lot of people on both sides of my family are overweight. I am actually 10-20 pounds overweight myself. I also eat when I am depressed or upset. My dh likes to feed him a snack when ds is in a grumpy mood or has been whinging for some time. It always makes him happy. He is also constantly begging for food even after meals. Both of my kids eat 3 meals, and 2 snack a day. He just never seems satisfied. And it's not a growth spurt. he has always had a huge appetite. Should I worry about this?
