Just getting back to Mothering.com forums after a long absence. Being a natural-minded new mom in 2006 I am so thankful for all the information that I received here. Saved me a lot of stress and despair. Now I'm back with the same child who is now 12 yo ds. He is also a bottomless pit, but eats very little red-meat which I'm glad about. He can eat any time and in large amounts. Today for lunch he ate about 6 servings of beans, just beans.
He is an athlete and started puberty about 4-6 mo ago. so about 11 yr 9 mo. THIS was when he started complaining of being hungry ALL THE TIME.
