Growth Spurts and Appetite

During infancy and childhood, there are periods during which the appetite increases. These are part of the normal fluctuation and don’t necessarily correlate to growth spurts. Similarly, a low appetite doesn’t mean the child isn’t growing; it could be caused by teething or a low-grade cold, or simply be a period of no appetite to be followed by a voracious one.
