Through my many years in school, I was once told by a professor that a person yawns because they need more oxygen in their body. That's why when you are tired, you yawn more because you tend to not demonstrate the posture needed to bring in oxygen properly. So, most likely, your child is yawning more because he/she is getting tired! He/she is starting to expel a lot more energy than before as he/she explores the world around him/her. You should discuss this with your child's pediatrician but most likely there is nothing to worry about.
