  • I wouldn’t worry, growing as a mini human isn’t a linear thing; there’ll be days where he’s having a growth spurt and days where he’s just being and isn’t needing extra fuel to grow. It also depends on how active he’s been, how much sleep, all kinds of reasons.



  • relax, they are all like that, I have a 4 and 5 yr old who fluctuate each day too



  • No i wouldn’t worry. If you think about it you would do the same thing! I have noticed my boys can all the time for a couple of weeks, and then they will have a growth spurt so I think its normal



  • I wouldn’t worry! Some days I am super hungry and some days I’m not very hungry at all! As long as his height and weight is in the correct place it should be, I wouldn’t worry too much



  • Yep my 19 month old is the same. I don’t stress anymore. I trust she will eat until she’s full. We have different appetites each day so I take it day by day



  • Just eat healthy and have a balanced diet
