From being a newborn to 1, a childs growth is very rapid, so seems lie they eat alo, but its becasue they are gwing alot! When a child hits 1 and on their growth slows down rapidly. Of course they still need to eat but they are not going to eat as much becasue they simply dont need it. Sounds like its a nomal thing you are going through. Id only have concern if there were other symptoms showing they are not getting enough like weightloss, less urination,BM's or a huge change in eating thats very noticable that doesnt go along with some thing like a stomach bug orother illness. Or if they seem like they want to eat, but keeps refusing. But i you are truly cocerned the dr is the best way to go

Latoya,

My son is three, and some days he eats like a champ, while other days he eats like a bird. Yes it is normal. However, if it seems to go on for a long period of time, or you child is losing weight rapidly, I suggest you contact his/her doctor.
