So little background. My daughter was born at 37 weeks and was 7.1 ( no teeny baby) she wasn't even on the charts for her weight until she was about 1 year old. now she is 18-19 months and she is above the 50%. Well my question is... we let her eat anything, and as much as she wanted when she was smaller. I nursed her constantly and always encouraged snacks between her 3 well planned meals. I feel like I created a bad habit because now she wants to have access to food pretty much all the time. I don't want to say no when she wants the healthier snacks, but I also don't want to be one of those moms with a morbidly obese toddler because I can't say no. Any thoughts on this? and also, she barely has any milk due to reasons I don't feel like explaining. She drinks maybe 5 oz of milk every day but other than that she is purely a water baby who has no idea what any other beverage is.
" an angel saw in the book of life my baby to be birthed, she whispered as she closed the book, " to beautiful for earth".
