When my child was a baby, we were amazed at how fast he sucked down his bottles- like he was absolutely starving, every time! And if I let him, he'd continue to eat, so we had to really watch how much we fed him.
Now, as a 5-year old, it seems he still has this desire to eat, eat, eat! He's not overweight by any means, but he constantly asks to eat. I know kids his age do this anyway, but it seems more like he really doesn't feel full. 20 minutes after he eats a full meal, he'll say, "I'm hungry!" and we'll argue over it until I threaten him! LOL!
Does anyone else have this experience? I wonder what his eating habits will be like when he's older, if this doesn't remedy itself. We are really careful about what he puts into his body, so now he's getting what he needs. But it's wierd how he just doesn't know what it's like to feel a full stomach (even when it is very full).
Just wondering if we are alone in this.
