  • yes its just a pickey toddler stage. He will eat when he is hungry. My son is 29 months old and is going through this stage yet again. It will happen a lot just make sure he is getting fluids atleast

  • Is he getting teeth? Is he sick? It may be a phase. Keep him hydrated and call the doctor.

  • Children often have little stages where they arent interstes so much in food, in my experience. try to keep offering him food. But if you notice he is looking sick, or if it is really bothering you, a phone call to the dr wont hurt. You can also try giving him pediasure sometimes to make up the calories if you need to.
