My 4 year old daughter fights me with eating at almost every meal time, I try to play with it but it always ends up a fight. She will let it sit in her mouth for hours without swallowing. Then wakes up in the morning complaining that her stomach hurts. Sometimes she eats to make it feel better, but many times she does it over and over again. This is starting to make me concerned, her pediatrician says that shell eat when she's hungry, but this is happening way to often and I feel that it's affecting her growth, she has slowed down on growing, her hair has stopped growing as fast, same with her nails. What should I do?
