2. Decrease in Appetite

It's normal for a baby's appetite to change over time. At around one year, growth slows down and many children start turning up their noses at mealtimes. Low hunger isn't necessarily cause for concern, as long as the child isn't losing weight and they seem otherwise healthy.4‘Appetite Slump in Toddlers.’ Tufts Medical Center Community Care, hhma.org/healthadvisor/pa-bappetit-hhg/.

However, a sudden dip in hunger alongside other symptoms is a good reason to contact a pediatrician. RSV often shows up in the early stages as a runny nose and low appetite.1‘RSV in Infants and Young Children.’ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 18 Dec. 2020, www.cdc.gov/rsv/high-risk/infants-young-children.html.
