Over eating. SamanthaCG Due June 12; 2 kids; Tennessee 133 posts

My son who will be 1 on the 27th feels the need to just EAT everything. If I, his dad, or my other son has food he feels "entitled" to it. We feed him PLENTY through out the day. Yet, he cries for more and acts like he DOESN'T eat. He's not over weight either, He only weighs 19-20 lbs. But he just constantly eats.



What can I do to, i guess, "fill him up" he drinks a lot of fluids through out the day also. But The eating is what I'm worried about. Even though the doctor says he's fine. !!!



Daddy keeps saying that he could have "worms" . . .I'm like, if he had worms I'd think he'd be much smaller. And sick all the time. Or something.

My daughter was like that. She was constantly eating all day long, but she was TINY, not even 16 pounds at a year. Some kids just need the fuel to keep them going. When he is hungry, let him eat :)

lol, I do. But I feel like he'll get fat. Or something. My first didn't eat constantly like this one does. . . He throws himself on the ground and screams and cries when the food is all gone.

My daughter has ALWAYS staying in the 25% percentile or lower LOL. My 5 yr old on the other hand never ate like she did and he's my husky one. Just to give you an idea of how much she used to eat, as a baby she'd take in between 6-8 8 oz bottles a day. She started slowing down around 6 and her weight started picking up a bit. SHe's 10 now and weighs a whopping 65 pounds, while my 5 yr old weighs between 58-62 :lol:

Oh, My first was husky also. ! lol, but never ate like this one does. This one I had to STOP feeding him breast milk at 4 weeks old. Because he never got full. it was TOO thin for him. so it went right threw him. He was literally eating about 6oz ish. every 30 minutes to an hour. He had trouble sleeping because of it. I finally had to give up, and give him formula because he was so cranky from "not eating enough" and not sleeping. And it's not even like I wasn't producing enough milk, because I was. It just wasn't "good enough" for him or something. lol,
