I swear she is always hungry!  Going through Walmart, "Mommy, I'm hungryyyyyyyyyyyy". Get her something to eat.  As soon as that is done, "Mommy, I'm hungryyyyyyyyyyyy".   I swear people think I don't feed her.  She's such a small thing.  27th percentile in height and weight.  Dr says her metabolism is just really good.  Which I used to have, too.  It's been months with only a couple ounces gained, so not a growth spurt, just a hungry kid.  I'm a little afraid of how much Disney is going to cost us with her eating so much!

I think it's normal. It's a phase. Some kids can't get enough to eat, and some are never hungry. I think she will outgrow it.

My youngest son has just begun to grow and he is 10.  Try to fill her up before you go to the park.  The prices at the park will kill your wallet.

 We are staying at the hotel, so it should be easy enough to bring little snacks, but this kid can eat more than I can carry!  I may just get the dining plan...Might be a better way to go.

I don't know how kids can eat so much and not gain a lb.

How funny. Jackson is usually the opposite so when he does that it surprises me. Yesterday he ate 2 things of yogurt in one sitting! He'd barely gotten the first one when he was begging for another. I looked and realized he'd basically inhaled it and there was only a little bit in the bottom that he couldn't get to.

How old is she? My 8 yr old daughter is the same way. She eats more than me and I am pregnant with twins!

One of my daughters was the same way.  When I took her for her 3 year check the PA said he was amazed. Our families were friends and we had been at a cook out at his house the weekend before. So he had seen how she ate.  Every time he looked at her she was eating something. But she had gained less than a pound in a year.

And now her daughter is the same way.  Constantly eating but not putting on weight.
