Hi, my daughter is 4.5 and is apparently the perfecy weight for her height. Her little legs are quite chubby though, she still has some puppy fat, either that or she takes after her mummy. Anyway, her legs have started to rub together at the tops when she walks. They are becoming quite sore. I've been using barrier cream on them. I'm going to dress her in either trousers or tights from now on. Do you think I should try to get her to loose weight? I hate the idea of puting a little one on a diet. She eats very healthily, but does eat a lot. She's always hungry. She hasn't got a sweet tooth but loves cheese, bread and butter etc. Or should we go for longer walks together?
Getting her more physically active wouldn't do any harm Also you could let her drink water rather than juice based drinks or fizzy drinks. She will probably naturally outgrow this "chub rub" quite soon though I would think! Do you suffer from the same thing?
I'm going to put her to bed in a minute, she wears a pull up to bed. I've got Sudocrem and a Peter Rabbit barrier cream that is compleatly natural, I'm just wondering which would be best for her sore patches?
'bum walking', it helps tone u up down there & is a proper giggle & not in the least bit strenous!!! sit on the floor, legs out straight in front of u &rotating ur hips / wiggling ur bum 'walk' ur bum across the floor. its such a giggle, we used to do it in exercise class at primary school. If nothing else its a really good exercise for bonding between u both. But yes, i too have quite large thighs & get sore especially in the warmer weather. tights just seem to make it worse for me & sometimes jeans too, but leggings are great, vaseline & talk (not at the same time or u'll glue urself together! lol!)
