  • Kids have the inherant knowledge to eat what their bodies need unlike us who eat what we crave. As long as he's getting his milk, he will eat when he's ready to...just keep offering.

  • Is he teething? It's pretty normal for kids to not want to eat when they're cutting teeth.

    On those days you can sneak them instant breakfast in their milk to get some nutrients in them.

    Anyway, as long as he's gaining weight and growing right, then docs say not to worry about days when they just wont eat.
