    Hi hun
    My LO did this around the same time and then again a month later. I was worried stupid but the doctor sad nothing was wrong and sometimes they dont have their usual appetite, just like us big people:flower:

    It lasted about 3 days and then all of a sudden she started back up again with her usual patterns.

    However, babies will also do this if unwell. So if your LO has a temp, isn't their normal self, etc then take a visit to the gp, but hopefully all is well and this is just a phase:thumbup:

    Hi hun
    Yeah! That's completely noraml for them to have these sort ov breaks, I have 4 children:wacko: in total and recently givin birth to my twins who now are 3 months old, and yes there were many days when they wanted to sleep, sleep and just sleep and also the days when they behaved like hungry monsters:haha: :d Not a professional opinion but i wouldn't be worry too much, relax and let them enjoy their days of laziness but still if you think that's Worrying then you can call your doctor or HV to take some advice.
    Hope everything Settles down soon :) take care:thumbup:
    :hugs:
