I have a 17month old son and he will not eat much during meals and he snacks a little throughout the day. He is in bed between 730 and 8 and is asleep within 10min thats after taking a 3-5hr nap could there be something wrong??

Thank you so much. I didn't even think about that. That could be the problem cause we can't get him to eat much meat. He wants nothing to do with it. Doesn't matter how i make it. He goes to bed around 730-8 and sleeps till 630-8 in the morning. I will have to check with the dr next time we go.

Well how long is he sleeping at night? If he isn't eating much, and seems to be sleeping a lot (like if he sleeps 11-12 hours at night and then is taking a 3-5 hour nap) then he may have low iron. Just make a doc appointment and say you want them to test his iron.
