My son is a preemie but i think it's all kids because my nieces are full term kids and have hollow legs and can eat and eat too!

I love the fact that my son is a hearty eatter. I try not to let him overdo it though. It is nice to know that there are others experiencing this, because at one time I wondered if there was something wrong. I send up a prayer for those who have difficulty.

My preemie would eat and eat and eat if we let him. He gets his meal, plus snacks plus some of whatever his dad and I are having, he's a fabulous eater. But, no, not all preemies are like that. Some preemies have problems with latching/sucking, textures, reflux, etc that make eating more like a chore. I'm glad my preemie is a good eater, I know so many kids, both preemie and full term, who aren't.
