My son woke up with black circles under his eyes and has had...

4 dirty diapers today which is pretty unusual. His cheeks aren't red and he doesn't have a fever but just the way his face looks so out of it after getting his normal amount of sleep and normal nap makes me worried. Could he just be growing or something? He hasn't ate anything different.

  • Does he maybe have a bug? A lot of kids aren't their usual selves when they aren't feeling well.

  • He doesn't have a stuffy nose or any signs of getting a new tooth. His cheeks always get red when he's teething. It's just making me worried because he's pretty out of it and just the way his face looks makes me feel bad :[

  • Just becasue you dno't see any other signs doesn't mean he's not getting sick. He either punched himself in the night, or he's getting sick, and this is his first sign. Give him a few days and see waht happnes.
