  • According to my pediatrician, painful shins, especially at night, are classic signs of a growth spurt.

  • my 6 year old is going through that phase too. some days she's her usual self (eats like a bird) and others she's a bottomless pit. growth spurt for sure.

  • If they're going through a grow spurt, sure.

  • Depends on the kid. My oldest has never been much of an eater. He has to be reminded to eat. My youngest is a total food person. At some point, I have to just tell him no more! If I let him, he would eat all day long.
