My daughter is 4yrs old. I think she has a eatting problem. She dont know when to quit. No one else sees this problem but me. My child weighs 65lbs when I was a sahm she was always the right size. Now my bf mom watches her while I work and she gets "over fed" and sometimes she even gets sick. I told my bfs mom to quit giving her soooooo much to eat. I dont know what to do . I need someone to talk too

you should put her on a gerbers fruit and veggie diet for 2 weeks and record her progress. if you tell her she can do it and rise her self esteem you will see changes

You need to take a stand for your child now. If your boyfriends' mom won't stick to a healthy eating situation for your child then you need to find an different person to watch her. I know that it is hard to do that but she is all that matters. She is your child and your responsibility and if you keep her weight under control now it will be much easier for her in the future. Just remember that the ONLY thing that matters is your sweet child and you MUST figure out what you need to do for her and not just what is convenient you or others. If there is anything I can help you with just post here and I can email you then. I know how you are feeling now because I have felt the same many times. Keep strong for your daughter because she is worth it.
